I know

You are all hanging out for photos aren't you!

I am slack! It's been crazy here, I havn't even taken any pics yet! But we are IN! YAY... Love the house! Though we are discovering a few quirks...

1. Old houses dont have many power points.
2. Floor boards are NO good in a toilet/bathroom. Wee soaks into the boards & no matter how much you scrub, the stench will not go away YUCK! (lucky a bathroom reno is on the cards first up eh!)
3. There is no normal t.v antena. A Foxtel one, yes. But I dont want Foxtel! ( I missed the Australian Idol Finale last night & I'm gonna miss Packed to the Rafters!! Woe is me!)
4. There is not enough cupboard space in the kitchen. (again, lucky a kitchen reno is on the cards second up)
5. Old houses dont come with fly screens. Poor Ella has been eaten alive by mozzies in her sleep!

So our "to do" list is growing... but I still LOVE all the character and charm our new [old] house has... no regrets...

I will post photos soon I PROMISE!!

What a weekend!

Today is settlement day... in 1/2 hour Swift Jim will collect the keys to our new [old] house!!
I however sit here at home ill. The gastro bug hit me at about 2 o'clock this morning, How's that for timing... blergh!
I am hoping I am better by tomorrow.. The handmade expo is on & I was planning to go for an hour first up in the morning, then on to moving house... I hope I'm not laid up in bed!

We have BUNS! Do remember my post a while ago about Ella's hair? Well this morning we tried buns...

It's probably still slightly too short, but it still works :)
She is growing up so much!!

Visit Sarah + Abraham to check out their cute as family labels! I was needing some new return address labels since we are moving house & these are just perfect!!
The ones pictured here are gift labels, but they have things for all occasions!
How classy are my letters going to look now !

Chitter Chatter

I was having a cuddle with Connor on the lounge late this afternoon;

Me: I love you mate
Connor: I know you do Mummy
Me: How do you know?
Connor: I can just feel it

Love my boy...

Heavenly Handmade

This morning I popped into Handmade Heaven to do a wee spot of christmas shopping. I was sorry to miss you Leisa, but I hear there are exciting times ahead :)
Well I didn't find anything for the person I had in mind, but I scored a few goodies for some other loved people in my life...
I am super excited to introduce you to "Daisy"... Santa is going to bring her to Miss Libby for christmas. She is so delicious!! Made by Selina Harding, Daisy is made of lovely pastel coloured chenille...mmmmm so gorgeous!
Here are some of the other goodies I scored... I could have spent a fortune...oh wait I DID LOL...

The end of an era...

Tonight I will go to sleep for the last time in this old beloved house. It has done us well for the past [almost] 8 years.
Tomorrow we start hoarding everything out.
A bittersweet feeling.

You are all so nice!

Thanks for all the kind words in my last few previous posts.
We had a better weekend with the kids, it helps to shift the way we are thinking a little. We even had a little fun with them :)

My back is 0k. Just achy muscles from all the packing & moving of boxes etc....

Thanks for all the lovely comments ((hugs)) to all....

I am discovering that getting up before the rest of the family wakes up is quite nice. It is dead quiet. There is no whinging, fighting or screaming from the children. I start my day positive, rather than waking to the sound of whinging, fighting & screaming. So although my back is hurting (which is why I am up so early) I feel like today is going to be a good day...

I do however think I will need a nap later...
