Hot, hot, hotter!

We've had a bit of a heatwave going on for the past week or so, much to my dismay as I'm really a Winter girl.


That's 106f for those of you overseas


The girls are loving the warm weather and have been enjoying lots of splashing around in their baby pools.





I'm hoping things return to normal in the next few days.

Happy New Year

It's been a hectic few months and my poor blog has been badly neglected in the pre-Christmas rush.

In November I got notice that my landlord was selling his property and wasn't renewing my lease, so I've been attempting to pack - no small feat with 2 toddlers underfoot - and we moved in with my Mother on Christmas Eve.

Moving on Christmas Eve - what a great idea that was. Not!

Of course I was up late on Christmas Eve as Santa left me some assembly work to do on the girls presents, but it was worth the late night as the girls had a wonderful Christmas.

I still have to finish packing up the rest of our stuff, which is going into storage until we work out where we're actually going to live. With only 2 weeks to go until I need to be completely out of the property panic has started to settle in as I realise what a mammoth job I have in front of me.

It's impossible to pack when I have the girls with me as they need constant watching or else they either end up unpacking what I've already packed, they add half-eaten bits of food to my boxes or they go outside and play with the hose and end up completely soaked... it's been a very stressful process.

I return to work on the 4th February so I also need to get everything set up for Family Day Care - I'll obviously get to that in my spare time.
