I picked the kidlets up, and said to M, maybe she could make some cookies for Girl Guides, to earn her Cooking Badge. She whipped up a batch like a champion! Pity they're all for the Guide troop - none for us!

Here's the story:You have to post these rules before you give the facts.
1) Players, you must list one fact that is somehow relevant to your life for each letter of your middle name. If you don’t have a middle name, use the middle name you would have liked to have had.
2) When you are tagged you need to write your own blog post containing your own middle name game facts.
3) At the end of your blog post, you need to choose one person for each letter of your middle name to tag. Don’t forget to leave them a comment telling them they’re tagged, and to read your blog.
Keeper - my hubs passed me up once, but he came back, so I figure I must be a keeper?!!
Amicable Australian - Couldn't decided which word I liked better, I thought Amicable was a clever word, "peaceful and friendly", and I am proud to be an Australian!!!
Young - sorry couldn't resist, and there aren't many words starting with Y!!! I guess I could've had Yobbo, but I try really hard NOT to be a Yobbo!!! (for my Non-Australian readers, a Yobbo is well, an idiot, I guess!)
Efficient - well I try to be, anyway!
Now I'm sposed to tag some people so I'm gonna tag my favourite Australian Bloggers

H is ever the gentleman, and let his 3 yr old cousin, TJ, beat the crap outta him!
TJ, has got "The Thing" hands on, and when you smack them together (or on someone!) they make a crashing sound!!! Please excuse "Barbie and the Nutcracker" movie in the background!
Other than the fact that my niece has brown eyes and M has blue eyes, some of their facial expressions are soooo much the same!!
Ooooo.... and a Happy 18th to me (well, our file!) Look how much growing a kid can do in 18 months!!! M, at 18 months and H, at 18 months. M, was off to a party and H, had just been to his first Royal Show. Ahhh... one of these days, we'll be taking Mini's 18 month photos... not celebrating months gone... enjoying months gone by.

Sunday, we went to Church, I bought some of my own cakes!!! But I was very happy to see that obviously there was some last minute baking done, and there were lots more cakes! We had lunch with T's sister and her five kidlets, then back home to do the ironing!
Yes... what an exciting weekend it was! I did watch Pride and Prejudice (again!) and now my daughter is hooked too!!! An old fashioned romantic like her Ma?!! Sorry in advance to her future dates!!!
Oh! And HAPPY BIRTHDAY to my Big Brother!

I also received my Lana's Jewelry order in the mail this week! What a gem-a-licious week it's been!!!
So, stop reading my dribble, and get on over to Lana's Jewelry and order yourself some beautiful hand made jewellery, by the gorgeous effervescent Lana! You won't be disappointed! Lana even boxes your goodies up, in these cutsie little boxes, and wraps then in tissue paper with a little ribbon! Value for money, that's for sure!

We didn't end up seeing Nancy Drew, it wasn't on... I think I'm confused, I think I only saw shorts to the movie, but it hasn't actually been released here yet!!! So we saw The Simpson Movie instead. Was ok, the kids were killing themselves laughing quite a bit, but I thought it was just like watching the tv episodes! Homer is right, in the first scene, he stands up and says we're all suckers for paying to go to the movies when we can watch it for free at home!!! Kids really like it though, so I guess that's all that counts!
I went to a fundraiser fashion parade yesterday. Didn't buy any clothes, but scored myself a very nice silver necklace. If I'd bought clothes only 10% of the sale price went to the fundraiser, but the necklace was donated, so 100% went to the cause. It was a good afternoon, and I went home happy with my necklace!
Happy Monday All!

The sun was shining today, so I thought it'd be good to get the kids out of the house, and take Chewy out, (in the hopes that he doesn't try it himself again!) So we hit the beach. It was blowing a gale, and it was a bit chilly (must have been, coz the kids didn't even attempt to get into the water!) The kids brought home buckets of shells. All is good.
NB: the scratches on H's face! Typical. He had school photos this week, and the day before the photos, he tripped on the playground, and gouged his face!
I thought we might do some more family bonding tonight, and head out to the cinema and see "Nancy Drew" M has been hanging out to see it since the holidays! But right now, I've got a date with Dyson. He really sucks.

Sorry bout the scary cat photo!!! Fitting my mood perfectly... right down to the glowing yellow eyes!!!
And no, Jeter's Momma... it's definitely NOT our cat!!! If wish I could catch the 2 cats that tease Chewy all night long, and have him barking like a mad thing... I'd definitely do this to them!!! (Sorry CJ! and any other cat lovers!!!) My dear SIL would be turning in her grave, God rest her sweet soul!!!
Speaking of Trish. Good lord, I've missed her this week. Even typing this, I'm crying again. I miss her common sense, her smile, her lighthearted view of life, her friendship, her solid support, her voice. I drove past the Showgrounds the other day, and was immediately reminded, that it was Trish that took my kids to the Show, while I was off in Sydney catching up with Team Salsa. Its the little things that catch me unawares, that get me upset the most. Sometimes, I think, when will it stop hurting, that she's gone? But then on the other hand, I think, if it hurts, it means that she is still alive in my memory, so then I don't want it to stop hurting. Good grief, I'm a nutcase!!!
Oh Tricia, how I wish you didn't have to go so soon.

Something weird happened yesterday. I had just dropped the kids at school, and was sitting at some traffic lights, I was deep in thought, when I felt a real "presence" around me (I say it's God, others may say it's intuition or a sense) anyway, I stopped thinking about whatever it was I was thinking about, and sat quietly, and just listened. I didn't hear any booming voices or even any quiet voices, but heard the song playing on the radio... "My Brown-eyed Girl"!!! I listened to the song and got goosebumps from head to toe! Weird, hey?
I've noted that one, in my diary... could it be... is Mini born? Is she seeing the same sun, I'm looking at? It was weird, but good weird?!!
