Borrowed Inspiration

Following on from my friend Lisa's inspiration I have done a couple of weekend round up Instagrams.

July 14th and 15th  
As it was the last weekend of the school holidays we took a trip to Melbourne to Wonderland Funpark, we rode the rides and watched the circus.

On the way home we discovered the Typo sale, yum!

On returning home we focused on all the "get ready to go back to school" tasks

July 21st and 22nd 
So this week/end we kitty sat our friends puss, while they were away, I think she was pretty happy with us.

Eth had a birthday party to attend

Sam had his first ever date (he's 11) which meant we had to go to the movies to supervise.  We saw Snow White and theHuntsman and Phil took Audrey to see Katy Perry's movie

We went to Castlemaine to check out the progress on the house my dad is building and took a mini bush walk along the creek,

And I finished my book (actually I finished 2).

See I Can Do This

So second day in a row, so far so good for my commitment.

Speaking of my commitment to things, its my wedding anniversary today.  Well in actual fact its both of our anniversaries, this is both the day we got together and the day we got married, no it was not an arranged marriage, they are spaced 4 years apart.  So we have been together 16 years and married for 12, we have managed to produce 3 children, have lived in 9 different homes across 3 cities, finished uni and held a number of jobs between us.  I think just staying together (well except the one day where we broke up in the first year) is the greatest feat, I have never doubted him (so that one day was a real shock) and can still see myself spending the rest of my life with him.  Mushy huh? But I'm proud to say we set a good relationship example to our kids, we are actually one of those annoying couples that hardly ever fight and are openly affectionate, much to our boys disgust at their developmental stage; too bad.

Renewed Inspiration - Again

So I am all inspired again, after reading through my friend Lisa's new blog and attending a tweetmeet this morning, I have renewed mojo for my online presence.  So I am tweeting  more, taking more pics, pinning more things, and will make the content of this blog a bit broader to keep it all flowing.

I finished up at my job of 5 1/2 years this week and so wil have much more online time to keep on top of it all (I hope).

Below is our afternoon at Lake Weeroona trying to run some grubs out of the children.

Well so much for that

So I am not a very dedicated blogger, just in case you hadn't figured that out by my near 6 month absence.  So many changes have occurred here in my little life, I have changed myself by losing 28kg to date, I have begun the process of changing my job, I handed in my notice last week and will be finishing up on June 14th and I have hardly scrapped a thing (they may not be a positive change).

Today is Mother's day and I have been up and done the 4km walk for the Mother's Day Classic which raises funds for Breast Cancer research, I have received some very thoughtful gifts from the school mother's day stall, I was delivered some very milky tea and raisin toast literally slathered in marg and I will be having lunch cooked for my shortly.  As the afternoon is mine to do with as I see fit I will be attempting some paper crafting. And I hereby pledge to come back and post anything I finish.
