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.

Summers as a kid were so perfect...

So many great memories came flooding back when I found this.  Don't you love it?

A few days ago we were all going a little stir crazy so we piled in the car and went for a drive.  We ended up at South Arm and Opossum Bay.

We stopped at all the beaches along the way for a play and a bit of an explore.  Had fish and chips for lunch.  Called in to see Nanny and Joe on our way home then at Amy's and the boys to meet their new dog Coco.
It was a beautiful day for photos.  I wish I was better at it!  I have ideas in  my head but they don't always translate to the actual thing so well.  I think that it all boils down to not quite knowing enough.

That said I do quite like these fun jumping photos I snapped.  The I love how the colours everyone was wearing all blend so well with the landscape.

And my personal favourite - Matt's Fonzie Pose!

Getting nice photos of my boys is EXTREMELY difficult.  So I told them I'll just use the silly ones then!
(does anyone else think Reuben looks like Brendan Fevola here?  either that or just plain possessed!)

I love the outdoors and sharing it with my family is the best.

It's out!

Dropped out on Sunday (a week ago) while she was running about at a friends house.  Don't know where it went but gee that tooth fairy is a clever guy (yep he's a boy I've been informed).  Apparently he found it with no problems at all and kindly left a donation for Charlotte's 'toothbrush fund'.  Teeth are worth so much more these days.  I wish I could cash a few of mine in!

to add that the money that was in Matt's wallet when he lost it had miraculously disappeared!  We reckon someone nicked the money when the wallet was first lost then tossed  it and it was just found again by someone else.  I think this because I don't know that someone who is good enough to take it to our bank would be dishonest enough to take the money out of it first.  Maybe I'm wrong but I guess we'll never know!

While we were on the Gold Coast at Christmas time Matt lost his wallet...somewhere between Coles and our accommodation.  We retraced our steps, asked in every business along the strip, called the police (on the off chance someone had found it) and tore apart our room and car in the hope of uncovering it - No luck! .  It was so inconvenient to have to cancel our cards and organise replacements and all that that entails while travelling. We really needed to be able to use our 'plastic'!  Despite being cardless we managed to survive and once we got home everything was quickly sorted.  We have lived the last 6 months without giving this experience a second thought...until today when Matt collected our mail.  Tucked away between the bills, birthday invitations, and mountains of catalogues was a plump little package from ANZ.  Yep, someone found Matt's wallet in Miami on the Gold Coast just last month and handed it in to our bank!! we couldn't stop laughing because despite the finders' obvious honesty and good intentions, Matt doesn't need it anymore.  He has a nice new wallet and nice, shiney new cards to match.
If you are the person who found it and returned it...thanks though because we have learnt a valuable lesson;  never give up hope when something is supposedly lost, it may come home one day.

Now, I wonder where my engagement ring is...
