Christmas Comes Early At The Browns....

Yesterday we decided to put up the Christmas tree.
It's a week earlier than normal but since next weekend's going to be busy I thought we'd get on to it this weekend to enjoy it a little bit longer!
I decided to go with majority gold this year!
I think it came up well.

It's been stinkin' hot here lately so I've kept mostly indoors or out in the pool!
I hope it settles down soon - I don't like the heat too much!

Anyway, this week's going to be a pretty busy one again.
I was sick most of last week so the house has a lot of work needing to be done!
Bathrooms to be cleaned,
Dusting ...
just to name a few.

I had a pretty miserable day yesterday. Got a migraine and felt rotten all day!

Today, I had a hang over from all the headache tablets and migraine so I had the day off.
But, I was busy the whole day doing "other stuff" around the house.
I did a candle delivery and got some bits and pieces from the shops.

Tomorrow I've got a couple of appointments so I'm going to have to have the day off again.

We've got a HUGE garage sale on the weekend.
I hope it goes well. I always hate garage sales - especially if they're a flop!

Amanda arrives on Wednesday night. We can't wait to see her again!

On Thursday I'm off to see this:

I can't wait - so excited!!

It's been a busy couple of weeks - I can't wait until things slow down a bit!

Just wanna say .....

I bought this gorgeous book for the girls on the weekend.
It's absolutely adorable!
Everyone with young kids should have one of these books at Christmas time!

On another note, I'm still working at Macquarie Uni - third week now.
It's a little boring and a long way to come but it pays the bills.

We are all doing well.
Aaron's studying at the moment - just for another 2 weeks.
I'm working - just for another 2 weeks - hehehehe.
Ash is counting down the weeks until Christmas holidays.
Lauren is counting down the weeks until she starts school next year.

I tell you what, I have to be the queen of thriftiness!
Yesterday I rang up our telephone service provider to query why our phone bill was so high.
By the end of the conversation the customer service rep had reduced our bill by a whopping $110!!!
And I was only expecting to maybe get a $20 discount!
You've gotta be happy with that!

What do you mean where have I been!?!?!!?

Been so busy lately.
Haven't had time to scratch myself.
This week I'm working for the Executive Dean of Business and Economics at Macquarie University! The traffic sux!! But at least it's money!

Here's a few photos to catch you up ....

Happy Halloween!!

The girls enjoyed going trick or treating last night! Got wayyyyy too many lollies!!

Ash snuggling up to Thomas. He's had a bit of a hair cut. He got in a fight a few weeks ago. He's been a bit cranky lately and moody. I had to shave the sides of him because his hair got matted after being in a fight. But he's on the mend!

Ash and Taylor enjoying their gifts from my trip to Singapore. Lots of bollywood stuff - bangles, saris, bindis!!

Two peas in a pod - Georgia and Lauren! You'd almost mistake them for being sisters!

The weather's warming up now which is nice! I can feel Christmas in the air - YAY!!
