Well....

....I made promises and haven't kept them. I'm soooo behind that its getting out of hand! I'm just feeling really blah. Not sick or sad or unhappy or anything like that just going insane living in this tiny house! 6 people have a lot of stuff - what I am saying, two 20 month old's have a lot of stuff, than when you add the other four people its mayhem! I've been trying to keep on track with 'Operation Organise' but I have seriously run out room. We have our house in Bairnsdale, Victoria forsale at the moment (well its actually been on the market for over 12 months!) and until that sells there is not much we can do. I want more room, I NEED more room! At least the dishes are done and the washing is up to date but we will not mention that I have 2 baskets of washing to fold and put away though.

I really meant to do a post yesterday (and the day before) but having no time to even get the photos off the camera to add to the post is making it a little hard. I don't really like posts with out photos. Today was meant to be 'catch up day' but that didn't happen. I got a few things done but then decided to sit down and scrap a page. I haven't scrapped in ages. The result? ......


{Credits to come}

Nothing fancy, just a quick one. Time I should have spent cleaning the bathroom or folding the washing but you know how it goes.

Tomorrow we are off to Bega for the annual show - meaning another day I will get nothing done. Should be nice to spend Valentines day as a family though.

This afternoon.....hanging out more washing, folding washing, dragging three filthy children through the bath and then there is dinner to prepare and also getting snacks and bags ready for tomorrow. I also need to clean some of the crap toys, etc out of the car and do a quick tidy up of the office (that the kids trashed - pencils and paper, chairs and stuff all over).

Hopefully Monday will be my day. Zach and Anna in Daycare for a few hours and Mitchell in Preschool all day should give me time to piece this house back together. Brett will be on day duty next week too which will mean I can get more done - do you get less done when the other half is around or is it just me?

So for a quick run down on what we have been up to.....

We baked!



Big ones....



and little ones.....



and some in between.

And they were yummy! At least Zach and Anna thought so...






I did get those drawers sorted...



And labeled too!



Zach got his new 'standing frame'


and at the moment is spending about 30 minutes a day in it, building it up until he can spend at least an hour.




He has also been spending some time outside with his trolley. Mosting in the evenings because it has been sooo hot!


And Mitchell, his usually amusing self....



Better run now, children running wild and in need of taming. See you all again soon!
