We're IN!

We have been waiting-ever so patiently- to find out which secondary college James got into and today was the day!


I'm just so happy as it's the school I went to and there will be so many opportunities for him to follow there. I still can't believe it!

I wanted to tell EVERYONE and for some reason I really wanted to tell my grandmother-Mum's mum-but of course she's in Heaven and no-one has worked out how to ring her there. I don't even know why she was someone I felt I had to tell as I haven't thought about her in a long time.

Have a great weekend all!

Two in A Week!

Busy few days with the primary school running the school production of Little Red Riding Hood-The Melodrama! DS8 is convinced it will be the local paper 'cause it's news, Mum' but I think I will have to disappoint him.
It was a fantasitc show and both boys enjoyed themselves on and off stage. Can't wait for Showtime, to see how DS11 goes-my star!.

Have a great weekend-we have footy-all weekend.

Stay safe

Woo hoo!

Ok so I've been away for awhile-things happen but I'm back-can't say how long for this time but we'll see.

What's happened? Well for one thing-the Junior Footy Season has just finished and my DH decided to coach the U9's Mistake? Well in some cases Yep! but on the other hand-No. Thru the love of junior footy DH has made some great friends-both on and off the field. As well as supporting the players and urging them on, he has been able to put himself out there and make himself accountable to the parents, supporters and the club. DH is a shy petal and for him to get out there and work with these kids is a miracle in itself. Unfortunately he won't be able to coach the U10's next season due to work constraints but I know he'll be out there supporting his DS8 and his mates every Sunday morning!

Go Scoresby!

P.S. might also have something to do with the bucket of Gatorade deposited over him and the mud thrown at him at the last match-finely organised by the DS8!
