Our kitty cat

ok so if you look back, you will see when Kirah became a mummy... i swore I wasn't going to keep one of those adorable kittens... ha yeah i fell for the fluffy one.. bear.

he came to live with us at 4wks old. yes that is early. but his mummy was getting sick feeding them, so they left as soon as they found homes.

Bear settled in just fine. not too much whinging which was great!

he is so much bigger now. he is a gorgeous nature.. and gets along so well with our other cat Misty. they curl up together and sleep.. she washes him.. its all too sweet..

coming or going... i don't know

alot has happened in the area of moving.
G found out that work is harder to come by when you aren't a local.. so, with finding that out, he drove home. on the way home, someone had contacted his brother about work, and wasn't happy that g had left. well not much else you can do when you miss your family and work isn't going the way it was planned. so we weren't moving anywhere.
the following sunday, we get a call from our landlords. we need to do an inspection. next sunday, we have new tenants moving in.. we are like oh crap... we are moving, but where to?
we get packing and cleaning.
today, the llandlords come, inspection went great. they are really impressed how we have taken care of the house, esp with so many bodies in it. we then discuss what was happening regarding our move. and they don't want to get us to move IF we have no where to move to! fantastic!!!!
We are staying put for now. when the work picks up and g is needed back up there, he will go, earn money, find a house for us and then we can follow.. until then we are here... phew its a huge relief for me.

thats all folks :)

Kirah is a mummy....

Ok, so kirah isn't our cat.. but i have known her since she was a tiny kitten..
she had her kittens the other day, and I got to see one (#4) be born.. she had 6 kittens.. one ended up dying.. :( but they rest are SO cute
here they are:

Benjamins 2nd hair cut.. so cute

Just before i was meeting a few friends for coffee, i thought I would stop and get Benjamin's hair cut... they fit him straight in, and he sat perfectly.. at the end, she asked if I wanted a mohawk.. so i did.. (out of my comfort zone there) and he looked adorable :)

Our Big News...

After many hours of thinking, discussions & research.....

We have decided to pack up home and move 1900kms north to Townsville.
there is heaps of work up there for Glenn.. and its about time we have a change.
So at the end of December we are off.. around here long enough for xmas with the family.

Alot of work ahead of us../me... but i think its the change we need in our lives right now. a new start.. and I haven't seen Glenn this happy in awhile. it has to be right :)

wish us luck with the new adventure

quick update.


I posted earlier that my foot was sprained.. well last week I found out it is infact broken.. so now I have a stupid boot to wear, that is like a cast.. horrible thing.

I put in an application for work at the local nursing home... got a call today, and have an interview on Wednesday.. so I'm nervous about that.

We are still waiting to hear back about another house.. doubt we will get it tho. Will be like all the others.

Benjamin is now 17mo... he loves to kick the ball around, and thoroughly enjoys being outside. Such a boy LOL

thats about it
Catch ya later

Our Melanie was voted by ALL her class mates to be the Student Representative for her class.. this is a big honor, as she has a special task ahead of her... She has meetings every Monday lunch time, and takes ideas from her class, to the meetings.
she gets to wear the Special badge on her uniform and all..
She was so excited this morning that she got her uniform all ready, all the way to hair ties and the style of hair she wanted, as she wanted to look her best infront of the school..

Can you believe Benjamin is 16mo already? I can't.
He is such a little boy now. and cheeky as..
he runs after all the girls.. and can say Nat.. and plenty of other words.. his favourite is "look" but sometimes it souds like dog..
He is mastering the art of kicking a ball.. and loves it. He also loves to thow the ball and make a noise/grunt at one of us to get it for him, when he is quite capable LOL

busy times...

Howdy howdy howdy!

wow we have been busy this last little while.. thursday we picked up the loan car while ours gets fixed.. its toooo nice to give back. Friday we went to sydney, I had my 6wk check up and am cleared for normal duties, but still take it easy, as the internal stitches still pull sometimes and that can be for as long as 6mo.. then after my appointment, we headed down to Kearns and spent the afternoon at my family's place.. the kids had heaps of fun, and it was nice to sit back a bit, and be in a tidy house that isn't destroyed as soon as i do something else LOL

We came home saturday afternoon, and got kids fed, then our good friends Rosemarie & Andrew from QLD came for a visit.. let the boys get to know me a bit before I babysat them on sunday.. So great seeing them again.. wish they were closer.. anyway.....

Sunday we did.. ummm cleaning in the morning.. then at 130 the boys came around.. Rosemarie & Andrew rushed off to the wedding.. and Kyal(2) slept, while Damon(4) played hard with the girls..

Not long later I came in to check on the others, Glenn had taken Benjamin for a walk, and Kaitlyn went too.. And the quiet outside worried me.. so mel checked on them. THEY WERE GONE!!!!!!!!!!!

Mel & Nat checked out the back, in the cubby and all around until i noticed them on the other side of our back fence and running down the other people's driveway, which leads to a main road!

I jumped in the car, told glenn where i was going (he was nearly home from the walk) and drove down the people's driveway until i got to them... they had climbed THROUGH a barbed wire fence to see a.... wait for it...... HORSE!!!! Oh one detail i forgot.. they were stark NAKED!!!!

A couple of very small scratches, and lots of dirt later.. they climbed into the bath.. phew

the boys went home at aroun 9pm.. :( and left for QLD the next morning.

now we are on our 2wk of holidays.. we are looking at finding a new rental. something bigger.. but it hasn't looked too good for us yet.

I'm looking at going back to work soon.. which scares me... we need the money.

and that is about it...

take care
