Welcome to chaos central

That's a bit like how my house felt this weekend - chaos central. My brother and sister-in-law hit town yesterday for a flying visit from Renmark.

They were out last night for a work reunion in the city and Auntie Fi gallantly stepped in to keep niece and nephew occupied and entertained, plus I had my grandson for a sleepover while his daddy was working.

My baby bought a motorbike...

The sight of it makes me want to be physically ill, it's big and black and fast - okay so it's a motorbike people (that's for those of you who didn't read the title of this post)

My husband tortured me by making me sit in the car with him and follow behind our youngest son as he ventured onto the road for the first time today.

New kid on the block

Tomorrow will be my first day on the new job after nine weeks of rest and relaxation. Well not really, the first few weeks of 'unemployment' were hellish as the family adjusted to mum not working and voiced their personal opinions on the subject.

There's a lot of opinion in my house these days. I have to yell to be heard some days and then some days I just don't bother. But then, she who remains silent on occasion, also sometimes has the last laugh.

I think I can...I think I can....

It's supposed to be 34C (93.2F) today, where did Spring go? We're 7 weeks out from Summer and it's this hot already? My poor dog doesn't know what to think, she's black and doesn't like the heat much unless she's in the water.

This isn't her in the picture, but given her love of water, I'm sure she'd look exactly like this - lol

Little bits of inspiration

I have seven days left of leave before I start my new job. Now I have a sense of urgency to finish all of the things I've started. By the time I start my new job I will have had 9 weeks off - boy how I needed the break.

We bought a new car on Friday (like this one) and I'm just a little bit excited about it. The end of the month seems an eternity away before we get it and I can drive it.
