It's Been Awhile

We are so busy at work, Quality Assurance is just around the corner. Always a busy time.
We made a quick trip to Colac in Victoria as my Nan past away. It was great to catch up with the family and a few friends. It just wasn't long enough and it is such a long drive (16 hours). Didn't get to catch up with everyone though but hopefully next time we will.
I have found a few old school mates on Face Book Gotta Love FB.
Abbey is finally booked in to get her P's (Has to wait a little while) I can't believe it either.
Keely is loving high school and playing heaps of sport.
Thomas is hardly every home on the weekends he is always with his mates.
Abbey is loving being 18 and enjoying her Friday and Saturday nights out. I'm not sure if I'm enjoying her nights out specially driving into town around 1.30am to pick her up, but at least I now were she is so I am not going to complain.
Keely had her first High School Social last night. Aunty Barb turned one of my old costumes into a Go Go Girl costume for Keely she had the best time. She wasn't very happy this morning though when she had to get out of bed to go to school and there was a lot of complaining about sore feet.

And everyone loves the nut bush.




And then there are these disturbing photos of my son, Yep that's my son Thomas. After many arguments with his father over which dress to wear, Abbey and I decided that this was the one that looked the most flattering on him.

He has beautiful skin and didn't need a lot of make up but the pink lipstick suited him perfectly.

Now we are all hoping that he will grow out off the need to dress up as a girl.

He made a beautiful girl for the social but I don't think it will happen again, he didn't enjoy having his hair straightened, make up on or even the little heal on his shoes he complained about the hair spray and hated the hair band.

They have no idea what it's like to be one of us.

Just for you MUM

Here a picture of Keely in her formal HIGH SCHOOL uniform

Last night we were 7 of the lucky 14,000 people who got to see Taylor Swifts first Australian concert. It was fantastic. She is amazing. If you have tickets to see her you are definitely in for a treat.

Not only did we see Taylor we also got to see my beautiful friend Nicole and her little princess Sarah whom I haven't seen for so long. Thanks for a wonderful dinner and night. Love you and your family xoxox

Since my last post

I have had a hospital stay, Abbey turned 18 (on her real birth date), had 3 weeks off work (not by choice), visited Coffs for Christmas and New Year, Abbey is working, Thomas & Keely are ready for school, I'm back at work & tomorrow I have been married 19 years .

I spent a 4 days in hospital with a sore shoulder not sure what was wrong. I got out on the day of Abbey's 18th (I shore wasn't going to miss that). Can't remember much of it didn't even have a drink, just lots of pain killers.

Coffs was great the weather was cooler then here. We did catch a tummy bug but quickly got over that. Christmas was great and Santa was very generous. Just like every other year, we visited the raceway and the Big Banana. And went to the beach for a whole 20 mins.

I can't believe that Keely is starting High School. Keely is very ready and excited to start. Me well I'm not sure about the whole high school thing. We went to get the uniforms, she tried them all on, then I told her to take them off and that we would buy them another day. I just wasn't ready to see my baby in a high school uniform.

Abbey's Uni offer came out a week or so ago she was very happy to get into the Uni she wanted. She has now deferred for a year. Very happy about that.

And Tom well he is still the same old Tom. Just goes with the flow. But I have noticed lately that he has manageD to tie his dad around his little finger. Tom been getting his way quiet alot lately.

And yes Keely has her uniform and is all ready to start the next chapter of her life at high school.

That's it's from me

Goodnight all

Last night Keely Graduated from Primary School and today was her last day at School. So High School is looking good and she is very excited about going there. She has a big few days coming up. Tonight the girls are all having a sleep over then tomorrow they go out to lunch, then Saturday is the Grad party at the pool. (I think the kids these days have a better social life then I have ever had well my kids do anyway).
The girls had there 18th last weekend we all had a great time they got lots of lovely presents (I will share pictures later) but I really wanted to show you this photo.
How excited do they look. OMG it's Ironing Boards!!! What do you do with them....It is going to be interesting. Lindsay thought surfing Abbey thought they would make a nice coffee table. I can see they will never get used as anything. But they all had a great laugh and the boys that gave them to the girls thought it was the best present ever.
Now getting back to the question above.
Don't they say "your only as old as you feel?"
If that's true I'm not as old as I thought.
By the way Amy has been accepted into the Air Force in January
Goodnight to you all

Forgot to Share This...................

Pink Ladies Day is a fantastic day held at Weengallon. The mobile kindy mums run this every year. All money raised goes to cancer research and a Little of the money goes to the Mobile Kindy Weengallon Service for all their hard work in preparing a wonderful day.This year was no exception, we had a fantastic day. We all got dressed in our pink and or pokadots.I thought we all looked great. We had a lovely meal and drank plenty of pink champagne. We did a little shopping and had loads of fun.

Here we are all looking lovely

And once again we took out the best shoes for the day. I love EBay and these shoes. Let me tell you they were very high and very hard to walk in. It was all worthwhile I received a voucher for shoes which I enjoyed spending.

Gotta loves shoes I went to Toowoomba a while ago to buy something for the grad. I was very disappointment that I couldn't find what I wanted but the 6 pairs of shoes that I brought made up for the disappointment.

Can't wait for Pink Ladies day next year. I will start looking for my shoes now.

From This.......Toooooooooooo

First there was Kindy were they all first met

Their First day of High School

Now Graduation

Were to next

Abbey is hoping to get a gap year job and then off to uni for a Bachelor of Art & A Bachelor of Education. Amy is hoping to do a gap year in the Air Force, she has had several interviews.

After hours at the hair dressers getting hairdo's and makeup, everyone looked gorgeous. It was so hot that the girls makeup was running and there hairdo's were just flopping, but that didn't stop them from having the time of their lives.

Grad was great they was lots of singing, dancing, tears, laughter and a little bit of partying. About 30 kids came back home at 12.30am to our place we all had a great night and didn't get to bed until 6.00am this morning.

All of the kids wrote letters to their parents and gave them to us to read. They were all beautiful and that started the tears for the adults.

Dear Mum & Dad,

Wow I have finally graduated!!
There is not enough time in the world to say thank you for all you have done for me! For the past 17 years you have both been there for me, supporting me through think and thin, and I would not be the person I am without you. I look back at what you have done for me and I am so grateful, even if I don't tell you enough. Your love and care over the last 2 years especially will not be forgotten. As I look forward into my future I can't help but think you are both the reason I can do what I want.

Love you forever and a day xx

Just wait my eyes have gone a little blurry again, we are both are so very proud of what you have achieved. We love you so much and always will xx
We also had 30 young Graduates come out home at 12.30am for an after party and I am very pleased to say what a great bunch of kids you all are. But I would have liked a little more sleep then what I got. I usually like to be in bed before 6.00am.

What a busy week we have in front of us Abbey is Graduating, waiting to hear the out come of a job interview (cap year job) and only one exam to go. It's so hard to beleive that my baby girl is graduating.

Abbey has grown so much from a beautiful baby to a wonderful young lady. I love these photos of her. She hates the first one. I even made her outfit in the first photo.

Enjoy your grad week and enjoy the next chapter of your life. Love you so much
