Long time no posting ;)

Howdy It’s been awhile. The school holidays are mostly to blame. I can’t think straight when the munchkins are running around terrorising each other lol

The munchkins have now returned of school. B1 is in grade 6, the last year of primary school in Victoria. B2’s in grade 5 and B3 is in grade 1. They all excelled last year so here’s hoping this year is just as good and loads of fun for them.

We celebrated Christmas quietly. It’s the 1st time in 11 years we have spent the entire day at home. Unfortunately that meant not seeing any of our family as they live near on 3 hours away but it was lovely to just relax and laze the day away. We did have a couple of neighbours join us for lunch and drinks which was entertaining.

New Years was even quieter. We were up extra early to take a trip to collect a pet pig, the day was horridly hot and by the time we got home, settled the pig in and done a few other things we didn't have the energy to party. Quiet drinks in front of the telly was all we managed. The munchkins tried their best to stay awake to watch the fireworks on the telly but fell asleep one after the other.

Not a lot has been happening around the church. The man is working hard out on the roads during the week and the weekends seem to slip by in a blur. Hopefully when the harvest run settles down and some well earned holidays are taken, then some work on the home will happen.

We have some new additions to the animal family. A big fat pigsy and 2 gorgeous guniea pigs. Buffy the dog is growing at a rate of a weed lol She’s still boisterous but learning slowly.

We’ve had an airconditioner installed. *Sigh* it’s bliss. We had a weeklong run of high 30’s – low 40 degree days and the church just wasn’t coping, or should I say we weren’t lol. It was even too hot to jump in the swimming pool so we bit the bullet and invested in a cooling system. And in true Mother Nature style, the weather is now cool and dull lol.

The garden is coming along. I planted a few packets of seeds in seed raising mix and within 4 days everything had germinated! 3 weeks later I’ve planted them out in the garden. If all goes well we will have mountains of watermelon, rockmelon, squash, zucchini and cucumbers. Not only am I trying to feed my family but I have to pig to feed to. She truly is a pig lol

There you go, a quick run down of the happenings since my last post many moons ago. I shall elaborate on a few things I’ve mentioned in following posts.

Until next time,

Hi there,

Glad to see you blogging, it may give me more clues ;)

Weather is heating up tomorrow, so maybe you'll get to test it out then?

Hope all is well. Have a great day!

Having a HS is a good incentive to blog hehe ;) I mostly do it for my family so they can see what has been happening in our lives.
The air con works perfectly! A cool 17-22 degrees inside is much better then the humid 30's out xo

Yes, I'm glad! It has given me lots more insight in what to get you!

I haven't been on in awhile and glad to find more posts here. Will have to read more tomorrow.

Haha! Glad it works... It's gonna be a warm Easter. The next pressie you find will be a bit pointless when it finally reaches you then... ;)Hopefully you'll get a laugh out of it.
