About Me

My photo
Where do I begin? I guess At the beginning! I live in beautiful Tasmania, Australia with my wonderful hubby, Matthew and our four angels (part time devils) Isaac, Reuben, Isabella, and Charlotte. Currently I'm a stay-at-home mum and I absolutely love that. Nothing else compares. I'm also studying the Master of Teaching part-time and I'm serving as the relief society president of our ward. I love being outside, especially in summer. I love big windows & lots of light. I love swimming, running and mowing the lawn! my favourite vegetable is carrots (or potatoes if mum's baked them) and I love fresh fruit salad. My most favourite thing to do is spend time with my precious family.

About Time...

I know, I know, I'm a slacker!

The past couple of months have been really hectic for me and despite wanting to do some blogging the most I have done is check out my new nephew, gorgeous Felix.

I have finished all of the props and painting for the dance school. I delivered that last of them last night and boy did it feel good! I can have my living room back now.

Here's a picture of the 'almost finished' surfboards.

Yesterday in the pouring rain, Reuben competed in the 'Tasmania Triathlon Schools Challenge'. It was held at Bellerive beach and despite the weather conditions there were thousands of kids participating.
This is a new event and the plan is to make it an annual one. By the looks of yesterday it will be very successful.
Everyone was drenched before the event had even started. Charlotte and I were soaked to the undies (literally) and that was with coats and an umbrella!!

Reubs doing his thing.

I was really proud of how enthusiastic Reuben was to take part in this event and because of that Charlotte and I were among the few parents and siblings who braved the conditions and hung out waiting for his event. I really wanted Reuben to feel supported in doing this.
So well done Reubs, you're the best!!

thanks...these were my favorite thing to paint actually. But I am glad to have them gone now. They take up quite a lot of space!
