and a few of you are reminding me how slack I am, so without further ado here is an update LOL!

It has been so long since I blogged that I don't know what I have told you and what I haven't, so bare with me if I repeat anything.

So what's news?

  • toilet training is STILL going and I am starting to think this darling little cherub will be in pull ups till she's 21. I am at my wits end so if anyone has any ideas PLEEEEEASE send them my way.
  • Caitlin has been rehearsing for the whole school revue which will be held next Thursday. Her Prep/1 class is doing "The Whole Tooth and nothing but the Tooth" and she is a tooth fairy. Andrew and I along with my in laws are going to the matinee show and cause I couldn't get any more tickets I have ordered the DVD for my Mum and Dad.
  • Caitlin is still really enjoying Gymnastics and Georgia is now starting to show some interest too so we might have to look into starting her next year.
  • Renovations have come to a bit of a standstill at the moment but we have just been so busy lately that we haven't had any time.
  • Pink Ribbon Day lunch at Wend's was a blast and we even managed to raise over $300, which is an amazing effort for 10 women (and four little girls). Wend gave a lovely speech to remind us all why we were there and having Dawn in the room made it all the more real.
  • Last weekend was the Cup Day long weekend here in Melbourne and I was a dirty little stop out and hardly home the whole time PMSL. Friday night I went down to Linda Loo's for a Chef's toolbox Party and had a great night with the girls. Saturday Caitlin, Georgia and I picked Uncle Dunk and Aunty Wend up from the airport and came back to our place for a much needed catch up. Sunday Andrew the girls and I just hung out at home watching DVD's all days, a much needed rest day. Monday morning I was out the door at 8.30am for an Osteopath appointment (I had managed to put three vertebrae out in my neck the week before) before heading down to Scraptac for the Cup Eve Crop. To say I didn't get any scrapping done would be an understatement but I did manage to do some first grade fluffing (Kimmy you would be proud). Monday night I stayed at Linda's saving me a trip back again the next day for Joad's. It turned into a bit of a Mavis night with Wendy, Cara, Didi, Rach and Kimmy joining Linda and I for what turned into one very funny night.
  • Tuesday (Cup Day) was Joad's birthday. Linda, Cara, Didi, Deb, Kimmy, Robbie and I went along as well as alot of Joad's family and friends. It was a great day and I don't think I have ever eaten that much food LOL, the Turkish bread and homemade dips were divine. Unfortunately I didn't do too well in the race and I am sure my horse is still running.
  • The rest of this week has been spent lazying around at home. Andrew had the whole week off and it was just nice to hang out together at home...we don't get to do that very often. It's all over now though as he has gone back to work tonight and is working all weekend.
Well I guess that's all for now (pat yourself on the back if you managed to read the whole way through this post.
Before I go though I do have a few shout outs;
  • Sending all my good thoughts and vibes out to K and her family and hoping that M has a very speedy recovery.
  • Duncan...this is notice to you that you are not allowed to take Wend out of the state ever again LOL! God I missed you Wend...welcome home.
  • Shazza, Shazza, Shazza! Worse case scenario, you will only be preggers for 3 more sleeps. Thinking of you gorgeous and can't wait to meet this much anticipated little baby Mavis.
  • Lastly, a huge CONGRATULATIONS to the very talented Kimmy Ogden who has been announced as an Elite Team Member for 2008. How you managed to keep that a secret from us I'll never know PMSL but it is so truly deserved and I am absolutely thrilled for you. Couldn't have happened to a more genuine and talented chook as you! Well Done Kimmy.
Hope everyone has a great weekend...I'm off to put the kids in the bath and then bed. Fingers crossed I might actually get some scrapping done tonight (SHOCK HORROR)!
