Oh Blog - poor thing - I have neglected you for a couple of months now.
But here I am - back with lots of news! This is a family post - crafty ones to follow.....
We have just returned from Oz where we went for a 2 weeks holiday over Chrissie. Great fun! Kids had a ball seeing their grandfather and aunts and uncle, and of course a cousin.
Hamish had his second birthday while we were there, and I admit I couldn't be bothered cooking a cake, so we bought this one from Baskin and Robbins, and it went down a treat! Best thing I could have done.
Grumps has the greenest garden in Geelong, thanks to several water tanks that catch rainwater from every surface he can manage, and the kids loved picking all the green apricots, roses, green apples, green cherry tomatoes, beans and whatever else they could get their hands on.
Poor grumps will be happy to see the back of us! As will the cats.
I got to catch up with a few friends which was really nice, and may have nursed a few hangovers. My mothers group from when Jenna was born is still meeting every 2 weeks, and we got to catch up. This isn't all the kids - there are 3 missing, but a happy healthy, rambunctious mob if ever you saw them! Great kids though.
And as with all good trips to Oz, ended up a couple of kg's heavier, lots of credit debt, and of course suitcases full!
