latest news

Hi everyone, Well the last week has just flown as has this long weekend. Can't believe that it is Sunday again already! I survived my first few days back at work and seem to be doing OK. It was really reassuring that I hadn't actually forgotten what i had to do and that I could read a blood film!! I will be working primarily in haem, coags and blood banking - you know my favourite areas! not! but the new system that I am working in seems much more efficient and user friendly!
The kids and Daz are going well. The photos are of Caden on his climbing thingy that he got for his birthday and Tyler checking out a rusk for the fist time the drooley bug that he is! Tyler has finally cut the second tooth and at times seems to be trying out new sounds everyday. Caden is coming out with new words daily now and is getting funnier all the time as he realises what he is doing now. He is going really well at school now and the two days is the right thing for him. He gets home exhausted but in such great moods that you know that he has had good days. Tyler is going through a not wanting to sleep for long during the day phase at the moment but is sleeping through at night so I guess that is a bit better than the other way around! Daz is pretty tired as he has been doing long days at work then having to come home to feral hour but we'll get through it. Other than that we haven't been doing a great deal.
Caden just loves making Cakes or Caa (sounds a bit like car) he even pulled the sugar and flour out of the cupboard yesterday for us to make one!! but the bonus for him is the eating of the batter, licking the beaters and the eating the cake!! He is still a HUGE chocaholic (just like his mum) and he tends to snap it if you say no. bless him!
Tyler is getting bigger now and had his 6 month shots the other day and was really good with them. he didn't cry too much and only has a couple of lumps at the injection site. He is eating solids really well now and loves veges - Total opposite to Caden - however will eat fruit over anything else though! He is up to 9.6kg now and 71 cm long so he is a good size to heft around - particularly when he is asleep and dead weight.
I have been still scrapping at the moment both digitally and paper. I created a mini album for the boys last night that turned out really well. I haven't used a premade board book and coordinated papers before so it was a lot easier to do than I thought. I have been out to the new scrapbook shop a couple of times lately and she has some really nice stuff and quite a few of the page projects that I am interested in looking at doing if time permits.
anyway had best dash as Caden is pulling me away to go draw with him
lots of love

hi just a couple of photos from the last couple of days. Tyler outside and Caden all kitted out for cricket!! Tonka hat and bat all ready to go. the only thing that he was missing in this photo was the Thomas gum boots that usually accompanies the other two!!


new things happening..

Hi everyone, things are moving along here at a rapid pace at the moment. Tyler is working on his second tooth and I have my first day back at work tomorrow. I managed to get a part time job in pathology working 3 nights a week at Dougls Hanly Moir in Calvary Hospital. Uni stuff arrived yesterday and unfortunatley for me there is an exam for this subject. So things are going to have to get organised soon! Luckily mum is able to look after the kids for the next few days as I am going to be working full time for the next 6 days! that should be really interesting. We came through the storm last night ok no damage and only a couple of power surges at around 6 last night and another at midnight. I think there was a bit of damage around town but didnt seem to be much in our area. Caden had a good day at school (daycare) today and is getting abit better at goin in the mornings .. maybe this might have been a good day. we'll se what it is like tomorrow when he is a bit more tired! The first of the artwork arrived home today in his bag.. a lovely little texta drawing. I'm sure the first of many.
Anyway bye for now

A new year to come...

Well this year has started and is going to fly right past us again! The boys are going well. Caden is now 2 and Tyler 6 months.. boy time flies!Tyler is sitting and rolling and has cut his first tooth. Caden is talking and chatting all the time now and is getting a wide vocabulary. The best thing we could have done was go ahead with his operation last year. they are starting to play really well together now. Caden just loves to try and make Tyler laugh. Caden is cricket and ball mad, can't get enough of hitting a ball around with any type of bat. He is also SUCH a BOY being so noisy all the time, if he isn't banging something, he is drawing on something, or dragging something else around. but I wouldn't have it any other way! Daz is still working at Cargill and while all jobs have their ups and down he still mostly enjoys the challenges it brings. Caden is in daycare two days a week now and wow do I love those days with only Tyler home - who also like the quiet as he sleeps much better during the day without Caden waking him up! I am still doing a lot of scrapbooking now but am really enjoying the challenge of digital scrapping using the computer. My paper scrapping is turning into making little albums and canvas' to decorate the house with and give as presents. These aren't as frequent but I really enjoy doing them when I have an excuse! I have been sewing a fair bit - Caden is growing too quickly, mainly practicing on shorts for the boys although I managed to make shorts and dresses for Christmas this year for our boys and the Cattell girls. they all looked really cute (luckily the Friday before Christmas was hot enough to wear them!). We had a good but quiet Christmas and new year. But within the next couple of weeks my uni will start up again and that means i am really going to have to become organised.. ha ha not likely!

bye for now
