Going Private

For those of you who read my blog, I'm thinking of going private. I have been getting some strange people commenting on my blog - complete strangers - so I thought I'd go private to stop every Tom, Dick and Harry being able to read it and follow what's going on in our lives.

So, for those of you who would like to continue being able to read my blog I will need to grant you "permission" to view it.

In order for me to do this I need you to either email me or click on the comments box below and tell me you'd like to be given permission to read my blog.

I won't be doing this for a few weeks just to allow everybody a chance to respond.

Here's to a more private blogging experience!!

Santa Photo

I got in early this year and had the girl's photo taken with Santa on the weekend.

I'm so glad Lauren's past that "scared of Santa" stage!
I don't know what I'm going to do when they get too big to sit on Santa's knee.
It's going to be a sad day when that happens!

Where Did November Go???

I can't believe it's the end of November.

Time needs to slow down because I LOVE this time of year - I want to be able to enjoy it more!!

We're putting up our Christmas decorations on Sunday - can't wait!!
New decorations this year include a garland and some stars for my nativity scene. I'll post photos next time.

I've been so busy. Nothing exciting, just the usual - housework, school stuff, more housework, shopping, painting and spring cleaning.

I found this note on Ashleigh's door yesterday ....

For those who need a translation it reads "Dear Lauren Stay Out Of My Room".
So there you have it! She's been warned!! I like the way she wrote Dear Lauren (very official).

And then, this morning she dressed Lauren like this ....

She begged me to let Lauren go to school with her today. And Lauren was TOTALLY convinced she was going to school with Ashleigh this morning. When I told her she had to stay home with me while Aaron took Ash to school she started crying - she had to go to school too!! She was dressed, ready to go!!

I nearly got Lauren's hair cut today. I'm torn between getting it cut or growing it long. It's getting so long!!

Anyway, that's about it for now. I hope you all have a great day!!

Ummmm, this isn't working ....

I stripped Lauren's clothes off this afternoon to put her in to the bath.
She has a ritual where she goes to the toilet before she gets into the bath.

This afternoon I heard her yell out from the toilet "I need to do WEE WEE MUM!!!"
I didn't understand why she was calling for help because she can go to the loo by herself so I thought I'd go in and investigate.

This is what I found .....

She has obviously been watching her Dad go to the toilet!
She couldn't understand how he did it standing up!!!
I had to laugh!

And earlier today .....

I walked in to the lounge room and found the cat sleeping like this ...

He was actually asleep but woke up when he heard me approach with the camera!

Who sleeps like that - with your legs in the air!???! Stupid cat!!

Well that's it for now.

Now much else going on.

Bye for now.

I'm Beached As Bro

I was walking around my local shops this morning and I saw this in the window:

I laughed out loud.

For those of you who aren't educated to "The Beached Whale" phenomenon this is what you're missing out on:

Of course Aaron found this crazy clip and told everyone he knew all about it.

Now, a retail chain store is selling the t-shirts!! Amazing.

This humour isn't appreciated by everyone, but for those who know New Zealander's, I'm sure you'd find it funny!!

That's it for now!!

Early Start

I'm not good with early starts.

Ashleigh decided to wake up at 5.30 this morning and she thought she'd go and wake up Lauren so she could have some company.

You can imagine how furious I was because today is Lauren's kindy day and she's going to be wrecked!

You know the feeling when you've been woken up out of a deep sleep by rowdy kids and your brain doesn't quite function?
Well, that's what happened to me.
I told Ashleigh I was so furious with her that if she EVER did that again (wake up Lauren that is) I'd .......... cancel Christmas!!
It's the best thing I could come up with at 5.30am!!

Anyway, at least it gives me plenty of time to catch up on housework before the girls go to school and it gives me a chance to blog - something I haven't done for a while!!

I've got no photos to share this time and not much to report on so that's it for now.
