I am having a pretty terrific week this week.  As we are all getting excited about upcoming birthdays and our trip to Tasmania on Monday, we have also spent time hanging out with great friends in the past 24 hours which has just been so much fun.  Yesterday I went to visit my sister and nephew, with my girls and my dad.  We had a great day just hanging out. Last night we went out for dinner and drinks to our local pub with friends, and I had a fantastic time, laughing a lot.  Then this morning other good friends from Melbourne who were passing through town popped in and had a quick visit which was a very welcome surprise.  I really do feel blessed to have such wonderful friends.  I think I may have actually told them all this a lot last night during my tipsy ramblings, but it really is true. They are so warm, fun, hilarious and well, good friends.  Thanks for a great night, all!

Lately Friday night has been tent night 
Just had to include this pic, because I think she looks beautiful. Taken while she was sick on the couch.
I am making plans for these babies
Just been adding pictures to the wall.

How awesome is this Princess Leia card Helena and I made for my sister. 
Check out the red gun, and her signature buns.
Lovely pressies I got yesterday.  I think the theme was handmade or red. So spoilt!

Why do my girls have to fight with each other so much?  I know it is frustrating for both of them. One is too young to do all the things her big sister can do, and the other gets annoyed by the fact that her little sister doesn't understand the importance of leaving the teddies exactly where they are because they are in the middle of a picnic. But do they have to scream and pull hair?

Ro has a new blog, and I am really digging it.  He is taking a million photos and posting all the time.  Check it out. Daybook Exchange.

I have this problem with clumsiness.  OK, I've said it. It's out there.  It is very frustrating for those who spend a lot of time with me, and I do feel for people like Rohan, and my Mum who put up with it for the 22 years that she lived with me.  I can remember spending a week away with my closest girlfriends in my mid-twenties and mentioning it, to which they said they hadn't noticed. Bless them. I think I spilt about five drinks over the course of that week, (granted they were alcoholic) but there was no denying it after that. I appear to go through certain periods of high clumsiness every so often, and I have been contemplating why that occurs?  Is it from lack of sleep, lack of a certain vitamin, lack of sex, lack of something? I haven't managed to figure it out. Whatever the cause, I seem to be going through one at the moment, having sliced the top of my finger off with a newly sharpened knife and setting fire to an oven mitt within a 24 hour period. Thankfully I am experienced enough to act quickly when these happenings occur. Although I have to say fire isn't usually my forte.  I hope this phase is done now.
