February Birthday Month Tristan turned 8, Seth turned 6 and I turned 32 I can't believe how fast time is going. The boys are having a great time at school Seth has the same class and teacher but Tristan has a new teacher and new class mates and so far it seems to be working well.
Happy Birthday baby boy!!!

Monkeys up a tree that is Tristan right up the top........ biggest monkey of them all.
All of the kids were really good considering it was wet and yukky. The advantage was we had the whole park all to ourselves.

Beautiful birthday boy.....big 6!
Life is good!

Looking forward to 2010

A bit of webcam fun to start the post off......

I love this one cause I was trying to take a photo of myself and it shows the true chaos of my life always a screaming kid running from the threat of the other screaming Seth run!!

I miss my chook saying good morning to me while I have my morning coffee

Well the last couple of months have been testing...... I have separated from my husband {my choice} long story but I feel so much better for the change. I have moved out and am living in a townhouse just down the road from the house so I am close as we are doing 50/50 shared care of the boys which is good but hard. I am still working like crazy at Bilo, of course Christmas shopping is always full on even in grocery shops.

I am loving life and enjoying finding me again........ as I said before I know everything will take a while to settle down but I am confident that everything will work out excellent.

Looking forward to the new year

Work and Play

Quick catch up

~ I now work at Bilo in the fruit and veg department which I love. The work is full on and constant never have time to think I am bored I have nothing to do, and I get to go to work and go home and not have to think about it until the next day. The crew I work with are all awesome and fun. Teacher Aide is on hold for now until the boys get a little older.

~ The Boys are doing well. Tristan has just finished his first year of Rugby League and LOVED IT!! Seth has given up on Gymnastics even though he was doing so well and had started training for competitions they are now both doing swimming lessons.

~ Michael has had a rough year he stuffed up his pelvis and had nearly 3 months off work and then the whole financial crisis and the building trade going to the shit etc..........hence the reason I am now working.

~ Other than that all is good and I am finally having a life again and partying with my new friends from work and getting paid for working instead of all of the volunteer work I was doing at the school trying to get paid work.

Will be back soon with some photos

Surfing the Net

I have been surfing some blogs lately amazing what can happen in a short amount of time people have babies, start new careers, married and divorced (not the same people).

What have I been up to well...... nothing to exciting this has been a very busy year so far though.

  • I started my studies to be a Teacher Aide and the day after I got my first lot of paper work signed off by the supervisior I got called in to do a day casual work and it didn't seem to stop. So far this year I have only had 4 weeks where I haven't been called in at least one day.
  • Tristan started Rugby League and I put my hand up to be the first aide officer (got my first aide course for free). So training Tue and Thur and games on Saturday and even with all of the rain we have had they have only called off one game so far. Tristan is really good he has scored a try every week.
  • Seth is still doing Gymnastics every Monday and loving it so next term he will be going on Wednesdays also.
  • Not much time left in the week for anything else but to relax (trying to).

That will do for today will have some photos next time

Love Always Tanya XXXOOO

I was reminded today that I haven't posted for a really long time. I know but I have been having major internet and phone problems.
Long story short to try and save some money on my monthly bills Ive gone wireless and the reception is really, really CRAP!!!! Optus has told me that since I have cancelled my land line they have a policy not to reconect blah blah blah. 2 hours and nine people later I got one month free on both home and internet. So now it may take me 5 times of reconnecting just to see one page. (I am not exagerating)

One good thing about the crap internet connection is that I haven't been spending hours on the computer like I used to and I am actually getting other things done that I have been procrastinating like my garden and my house.

So for those of you out there who check up on me every now and then I am well and plodding along........I still check blogs when I get a chance and when the internet lets me.

So I thought I would give it a go since I have the sewing bug at the moment. Not much in there but I have only just begun.

Onto Family stuff, My boys are both well and are enjoying school and kindy heaps, So good to have happy boys.
We have been having lots of sleep overs lately, although the reasons for the sleep overs aren't good, but it is so great to get to know my nephew and niece.

Love Always

Where does the time go????

The School holidays (which seem like a year ago) were full and exhausting. First week was great lots of shopping and sewing!!! Spotlight had a 20% off everything sale (I HATE THAT PLACE) so armed with lots of material I had a great week of sewing, visiting parks, markets, skateboard parks etc. and the boys had a great week with no school. Tristan had a little stomach bug but it only put him out of action for one day which allowed more time for sewing. I made more than these two out fits but they are in the dirty cloths.

Second week started off with the best intentions along with a friends and lots of kids we caught the train for fun got off at a park played for an hour then caught the train home. Fun. This is where the drama starts I wont go into to much detail but it was a big week for all. My brother-in-law collapsed with exhaustion and depression so we got to look after his two boys for a few nights which was fun but then Seth got really sick he ended up having gastro for 6 days the poor thing was soooooo sick he couldn't move and the two ring-ins had horrible coughs and head colds and hubby got a touch of the gastro and a headache, male syndrome. LOL. (Tristan was healthy, thank goodness) Big Week and very worrying but all is good now after lots of doctor visits for everyone involved!!
I have so much admiration for women with more than a couple of kids cause four boys aged between 2 and 6 was alot of work but I managed to get so much done cause I never had a chance to stop.
So glad school is back I finally got a day to my self this week and I was so lost I felt guilty sitting down but had to force my self to. (cough....cough...) Seriously I am so ready to go back to work at least you get a break while you are there.
Love Always
