A home of our very own!

I haven't blogged for a while.  I've been keeping everyone updated via Facebook and forgotten about my poor old blog.

2013 has been a fantastic year – much better than last year.

This year has been a “Year of independence” for the Brown family.

Lauren has become a lot more independent this year. She buys things from the shops on her own, takes the dogs for a walk on her own and has walked up to school on her own without Ashleigh (in preparation for next year when Ashleigh won’t be there).

I got a “part-time” job in May this year working at a company called Fluke. It’s located in Castle Hill so is nice and close to the girl’s school. I started out working school hours but since the end of September my hours have increased to 4pm. Thank goodness Mum has been able to get the girls for me in the afternoon.

But the best news of all …. we bought this:

A home of our own. It’s so exciting. We move in 3 weeks – just before Christmas.

What an amazing Christmas present!

I have so many plans for it but of course this will happen over time and not straight away.

This is going to be difficult for me because I want it all done NOW!

I can’t wait to transform it into our “Forever Home”.

But for now, I have to start packing.
