Roman Shades

Ok, so I can not sew to save my life. I was wondering if anyone would know of a good seamstress to make Roman Shades. Any information or ideas would be greatly appreciated!

Why does this happen?

I do laundry usaully every other day. After gathering the clothes up that sit right beside the clothes basket in both of my kids rooms and sometimes at Harry's clothes basket(by the way,another gripe that I have) I proceed downstairs to the laundry room to do the laundry. Typically in my household I am usually the one that does the laundry( all though I do have a wonderful husband that helps in other cleaning/domestic duties of the home). My gripe is how can so many socks disappear? I have dozens of socks that no longer have a mate. I complety cleaned both of the kids rooms a couple of weeks ago in hope that I would find them, nope there not there either! Does the washing machine eat them? I guess it's just a mystery. I really love buying socks all the time

Bunko

Was wondering if any ladies would be interested in playing Bunko on a regular basis. Maybe once a month. If you have not played this game, it's very fun and we have always had a good time playing it with a group of women. Of course our spouses are invited to play too. Let me know what you think.

Too Funny

Bryson's stomach is a little upset this afternoon. So as he is playing in the playhouse outside about every 5-10 minutes he comes inside to use the bathroom. "Mum I need you" he yells out. After a few times of this routine he finally says "Why does my bottom keep burping"

Too Adorable!!!

Home Sick

I have not felt this way in a very long time. The last few days have been tough!!! Emotionally! I just really want to see my family and friends again. I have a wonderful life here and have been blessed with many good friends and I have a wonderful family. It's hard when so much of me wants to move with my family to Australia but knowing the chances of that are very slim but at the same time some part of me wants to be here... Confusing HA....

Kinda feel better just getting my feelings out. I guess that's what Blogs are for!!

How could this be?

I love to sleep!! I don't know a mother that dosen't like to sleep. Usually I will sleep on average of 7-9 hours of sleep a night. Anyways for the past three weeks I have slept about 3-4 hours a night. The first thing people or a Dr would ask is there something you are worried about or on your mind! My answer to that is no to is there something worrying me, but I belive we always have something on our mind. Nothing to the extreame that would keep me awake for many hours a night.

The very weird thing about this story is that I feel great, I am not tired, infact I feel better than I would if I have slept for 8 hours. Maybe it will catch up with me real soon.....

How could this be???

1st Day of Soccer



Brsyon kickstarted his soccer career today! The "Blackhawks" played their very first game on Saturday and had a blast. They were so very cute. A bunch of 4 and 5 year olds running around kicking the ball. Lots of fun was had by all

Father's Day

So yesterday was Father's day in Australia. Every year I buy Father's day cards for my dad so I and the kids can send to him in late August for them to arrive in time. (very hard to find father's day cards in August here)

I was talking with my mum on Friday( Sat there) and she gently remindeded me that it was Father's Day tomorrow. I told her I knew and that I would call. So about 10.30 last night after completely forgetting to call my dad all day, jumped on the teley and called Father. Mum answered and said did you forget to call. Yes my response was as she noticed that I had just woken up. Netherless she was not pleased with me and the conversation went on. I felt bad, but was that because my mum made me feel bad or came to realization that my memory does not serve me as well as it use too..
