family pic

Well it's been a while since I've blogged. Scott got home from overseas and we had a very busy July. The Norwex side of life was a bit crazy in July. Has almost come to a stand still in August which is a bit frustrating. Hopefully the few demos I have booked will create some good business.

Before Scott away we got Matt to come over and take some pics.

LOVE THESE KIDS!!! The best in the world!

and he's home...

I am happy all the day. My beautiful husband is safe and home. My boys are happy, happy, happy. I am grateful, relieved and happy! That is all.

4 sleeps and 3 days to go...

Today is my 37th birthday, quite frankly, I feel a non-event, especially being that Scott's away. But my Mum and lovely sister Bec and beautiful, but sick sister-in-law, Skye, and brother Matt made it a perfectly wonderful day.

The boys and I piled into the car, and followed Bec and her boys and Mum down to Matt and Skye's farm... Finally! Micah asks every second day if we can go to Skye's farm, so it was wonderful to be able to go today. Unfortunately no photos!! But Mum had the camera out, so hopefully they will come later.

Felt bad the Skye was feeling so unwell, but still we had a wonderful visit. Exciting to see her beautiful figure blooming in pregnancy, even though I'm quite sure she wouldn't use the word "blooming". The boys laughed and played well together, all three of them with their cousin Bella. Alexander was quite demanding at times, yelling "Bella, Bella" at the top of his voice.

There was cake, a beautiful risotto prepared by Mum, and caramel slice... in fact all prepared by Mum. How is it, I'm 37 and my mother is very much still spoiling me and looking after me on my birthday... oh that's right, Scott is in Poland!!

Talked to Scott which of course was wonderful, but not the same as him being here. Count down is getting closer and closer. So relieved it's nearly done and soon he will be home, reunited with his family!!

I am altogether blessed and loved. I am today, more grateful than ever for my husband and my beautiful boys, for my mum and my sister and sister-in-law... indeed I am blessed. Thank you Father!

7 sleeps and 6 days to go...

Today was a rough day. Well truthfully the morning was ok. We had mother's group here. The boys were pretty good but not really in the "sharing" kind of mood. After their sleeps we played for a bit, and then we shopped for dinner tonight. Bec, Matt and boys came for dinner which was lovely but Micah and Toby were "difficult lemon difficult" tonight. Was glad when they went to bed... I fell asleep on their floor before they went to sleep. I miss Scott!!!!!! Tomorrow marks the half way point, so from Sunday it's all downhill. Can't wait for him to be home. Micah cried A LOT today over wanting "Daddy to come home". Can't imagine how difficult more than a couple of weeks would be.

10 sleeps and 9 days to go...

Well so far so good. We've made it through our first few days of Scott being far, far away. There's been tears, mostly from me, but a few from Micah. Toby seems a bit oblivious to it all, but Micah feels Scott's absence. Mostly when he's tired, he realises he wants to be with his Daddy. I explain again and again, 10 more sleeps Micah, just 10 more sleeps. He fell apart tonight, made me cry a little too!!

Today I worked and the boys were in daycare. Tomorrow we have options not sure what we'll do. Have a friend coming for dinner and Micah has ordered spaghetti for dinner! I think he'd eat spaghetti every night of the week given the chance!!

Night world. Will write more another night. Have I mentioned how much I love my boys, and how desperately much I love their Dad?

12 days to go...

Well here I am, a single mum for 12 nights and trying not to feel too sorry for myself. I know there are those whose husbands are in the armed forces and they spend months away. I guess I'm spoiled to have a husband who is always so constant and present, so when he's not here it really feels like my world is off kilter. He's only been gone a couple of hours but already I feel his absence keenly.

But I am so proud of him. Off he goes to interview some famous dude in Berlin for a couple of days, and then to present a paper at a prestigious conference in Krakow, Poland. I wouldn't wish him to miss it, but miss him I will. And the boys I imagine when it settles in that Daddy's not just gone to work :( Father please give me strength and grace.
