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.

'tis the season...

My Nativity Scene arrived in the post today. Isn't it cute? Charlotte and Holly, her friend from next door, had a great time unpacking the box and setting this up on the table. Afterwards we made playdough. Check out the huge pile of ironing in the background, I was very proud of the fact that I could ignore this and choose to 'play' instead.

I've also decided to defer uni for a year or two. I was actually feeling quite sick about starting next year. Even though it would only be one day at uni a week it just isn't the right time. I simply can't give up being with my kids whenever possible. Charlotte goes to family day care one day a week from 10 til 2 and that almost kills me!!! Don't get me wrong, I also love having some time for me but you know they grow so flamin' fast I can't stand the thought of missing anything. Anyway I felt so good as I filled out and posted the deferral form - pressure off! now I can look forward to the silly season and not have to worry about the stress of next year.

Hi! I LOVE your nativity set!! So cute!!! I agree about staying home. I often think I would like to work part time or do something else, but your kids are only little for a short time and you can always work etc later, but you can never get those years back with your kids.
