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
