Good bye 2009

wow i cant believe another decade has just finished.

This time 10 yrs ago i was in England in the freezing cold about to celebrate NYE on the Tyne Bridge in Newcastle-Upon-Tyne.

Christmas day was loads of fun... the kids got brand new bikes each.  They also got loads of cool presents like a Barbie Aeroplane (i didnt even know that existed!!!), embroided pillow cases in brand new latex pillows.  Clothes, toys, shoes.

The MOTH scored well with a remote control helicopter...

And his LX SS Torana t-shirt.

I of course got my brand new Toshiba Satellite Laptop .I love it!!!!!!!!!  4 GB memory and 500GB harddrive.  WOW.  My last computer was 80GB harddrive.  It still did the job and was a wonderful computer for years.  It's now the games computer!

Lets no forget the gorgeous new pool and slide that the MOTH spent hours perfecting, putting together and buying all the gear needed.  It was a labour of love and we love it!  Pity it hasnt really stopped raining since xmas day for us to truely appreciate it!!!  It hasnt quite finished yet, as we need some perspex on the outter rim of the pool to stop the water hitting everyone sitting in the courtyard. LOL.

With our summer comes the nasties.... lots of red-back spiders - YUK!  The stay mostly outdoors thankfully, but the MOTH sprayed all the spiders the other day and the next morning i went around sweeping up carcasses...

My gorgeous pink girl..

Kids, by the time you read my blogs i bet these are no longer in existance... corks in wine bottles.  How sad.  Sure the twist tops are easier, 
but nowhere near as classy as uncorking a bottle and hearing the 'pop'.

So it's NYE tonight.  We are heading down to the usual spot.. Wangi Foreshore.  We have been going there for about 8 years now.  I always THINK of doing something different but it never happens lol.  I will try and take some photos to put on here.  I hope the rain holds off for the fireworks at 9pm.
