September Holidays

Goodness this blog really is suffering from neglect!
The children are having great September holidays. They spent the first week with Granny and Gramps who were up visiting from Adelaide and they are spending this week with Daddy and Grandma in Bundaberg. In the first week they went to see Spy Kids at the movies followed by McDonalds and a shopping expedition. They also went ten pin bowling with friends and had good times riding their bikes and scooters at the park.
This week in Bundaberg, they have attended 2 birthday parties and one still to come, swum in the pool and been out fishing. They'll need to return to school for a break.
I also have had a lovely break with a whole weekend to myself. I am working this week but am enjoying looking after just myself. I have achieved lots in the house and have washed and washed and washed all of the winter woolies and blankets. Hopefully the cold will not return. I have also managed a little scrapbooking too.
My niece, Alex has come through her major surgery very well and is resting up in an attempt to return to school soon.
Some photos of Miss Penny riding her bike and the kids ready for the school disco - theme "black and white". Penny insisted that she needed some black and white clothing to wear so after going through the material box we found some material and I whipped her up a skirt the night before and a little broach to wear on her shirt. She had so much fun dancing and Nick had fun mucking around.
Some scrapbooking from August.
Have a good week.

About Time ...

for another post. I was waiting until I had edited some photos but I haven't 'found' enough time. Poor priority of time is probably the answer.
What have we been up to? Well I have worked 9 out of the past 10 working days due to holidays and illness of other sonographers at my practice. Of course Craig has been away. Penny has been busy with ballet exams and thoughts of aspiring to a stage career as well as thinking about what to wear and how to dance at the school disco. Nick has had a facial altercation with the fireman's pole at school and still has bruising and a swollen face 2 wks on but no fracture thank goodness. He also decided to have illness consisting of a cold and temps which was in my very busy working week but we managed. He was my helper at work. Today Nick received a trophy at his soccer break up and was also chuffed to win the raffle which is a Roar jersey with his name and number and all of the team's signatures on. Makes up for all of the bad luck he has had recently.
My parents arrive on Tuesday to help out with holiday care and to see our Brisbane house which will be lovely. Also a special good luck to my little niece, Alex who goes in for major surgery on Wednesday all being well. She has already had a false start after becoming unwell 2 days before this surgery was scheduled a week ago.
Here are a couple more LO's. I haven't done too much scrapping recently but plan to get back to it soon.

Have a happy week.
