Camping…

Over the weekend we took the new truck camping. Monte wanted to pick up his peteroid motor thing that will be our new backup generator. We drove up north and camped in Sprent. The forest was very pretty, although it was terribly windy (and cold, and wet) and the trees croaked and groaned all night. […]

Swimming and Stuff

Today was quite warm – hot even! With temperatures reaching 30 degrees, we all went to the local pool and had a lovely swim! We’re thinking about getting a season pass, so we can go whenever we want to. Georgia had a fabulous time and is a natural in the water. She “swam” at least […]

Georgia starts school!!!

a grown up Georgia in her school uniform Right, so, my firstborn Georgia Rebecca May has grown up and wears a school uniform and goes to school and learns stuff… I can deal with this! It’s only two days a week. It’s only for a few hours. It’s nice to have some time just with […]

Wedding Anniversary

Yesterday Monte and I celebrated our 9th wedding anniversary. Here’s us when we were married – aged just 21 and 22! We celebrated with a scenic drive followed by a family picnic at Margate playground aka Du Pont Bicentennial Park, where we ‘fed’ (under duress) ducks that made Matty cry; watched boats on the water; […]

Georgia wins Pet Parade at Middleton Fair

On Saturday we went to the Middleton Country Fair. It was a superb day! We saw animals, visited lots of stalls of homemade crafts and produce and Georgia took Lucy in the pet parade and they won! Georgia won a scarecrow badge and some lollies because she had the cutest pet – and quite possibly […]

A day in the forest

On Friday I felt rather low, being rather claustrophobic and lonely. Monte, being the great man he is, would not put up with my crap, and insisted that we all took a walk into the forest to look for the creek. I agreed, not reluctantly, and I felt so much better afterwards that I wanted […]

Animal Farm

Feeling happy!   Me and MG at Dover beach on Aussie Day. I now know where Georgia gets her gorgeous hair from! “look at mummy! doesn’t she look funny” (ha ha) – lovely kiddies giggling Bonnydoon – serene despite ol’ Genny* running on Jerry’s* good juice. We have names for everything now. This is how […]

Arriving at Fangorn Farm

Possibly the best picture I have ever taken. Matthew is a real country feller in his overalls, with his trusty companion d’Artagnan. When we arrived at the property, the first thing we did was walk the top perimeter. That’s everybody, including the cat. It was Monte’s birthday the day we arrived. We celebrated midnight with […]
