....sitting here this morning...thinking about updating my blog.....wondering how I can feel so swamped and busy...and yet have nothing worthy of blogging!...I mean does that happen?
So apologies in advance...this is going to be a complete bore.....yes..even Im yawning!

The weather is changing ...the days are beuatiful but the evenings are cool...and mornings down right cold. This has meant a change of uniform this term.... Briony is no longer wearing the short cotton skirt.... its now the long woollen skirt and knitted jumper.....they are so long the skirt actually sweeps the ground.....they have to be this length as they hide their tracksuit pants underneath for extra
Here she is walking down our track to the bus this morning..... probably muttering under her breath that she wishes Id go away with my

.... Mitch on the other hand is still in shorts and polo top.... Im sure boys have no temperature sensors.... he just doesnt seem to notice the chilly mornings yet.

...another delight about having the kids back at the little gifts that come home in their school bags......Briony is doing Agriculture as a subject this year....and has her own little vegetable plot at its just lovely when we get a plastic bag full of these goodies plonked on the sink at the end of the day.

Brent is loving his new job.... and he and Alex are either both here...or both in Waikerie.... HE quite often drives me this morning where we have had a monster argument over the length of his shower.....I was so glad to see him leave for work this signalled argument over...phew!

...and then I have moments when I just love having them around..... like last Wednesday when they cooked dinner for us all..... and it was totally delicious....

  1. Hey my friend - you are NEVER boring! I love reading about your life. Wow that is a VERY long skirt that Briony has to wear - I don't think the girls up here would like that very much - she does look gorgeous though.

    Hmm arguments - what fun! Their dinner sounds yummy though. Nice to be spoiled sometime hey.

    I hope you can have a lovely restful day today and do something fun for you....

  7. Send them down here if they want to practice their cooking LOL I cant wait till my boys are old enough to do that all by themselves!

    I had a giggle about the temperature sensor on boys - mine would be happy to wear shorts all year - thankfully from this week they HAVE to wear long pants, so no more arguments LOL
