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.

I have been unbelievably slack.

Actually,  prior to Christmas I was feeling very much like I needed some change so... I quit my job!  It felt so good.  Little did I know that wasn't the end of the change.   I was released from my beloved Stake YW calling :(   and called to serve as 2nd counselor in RS.  I am responsible for Enrichment.  Funny thing is that Bridey was called to the same calling in her ward on the same day !!  Great,  now I will have someone to steal ideas from, ya.  Anyway because I have had a bit more time on my hands I made a loooooong list of things to do:
  • more play time with Charlotte (every day)
  • go to story time at the library each week
  • spend some more time in the kids' classrooms
  • start playing netball again
  • start swimming again ( I miss it so much)
  • get into my garden
  • finish my two new vegie patches
  • finish painting the kitchen
  • do some sewing
  • etc
  • etc
somewhere at the bottom of the list was:
  • update my blog!!
So...over the next week I am going to attempt to make time to begin the update (see, even the way I wrote that is giving myself an 'out' if I need it...I think I have blog committment issues)

Tomorrow Isabella turns 8 and on Saturday she is getting baptised!! So I will have some exciting things to blog about.

Till then..................
