Goodbye Nick and Trixie

A bit of a sad time in our home at the moment.  On Thursday late afternoon (9 Aug), our bird Trixie decided to go for a fly outside and unfortunately we have not found her.  The kids are devastated and I feel so bad because I was the one who left the door open.  This door, by the way, is what i use when bringing in the groceries and she has never even looked out the door let alone flied out it.  Was so shocked!  Went running and looking for her but sadly no Trixie.  I have put up posters and we will keep looking...
Nick also said goodbye this morning, he is moving to Canada permanently to be with his girlfriend Kayla (who is lovely).  We will go and visit him in a couple of years, I cant wait, I would move to Canada in a heartbeat if i got the chance. 
Loving the photo bomb from Rory!!
On Wed night, all the local Wangi people gathered at Wangi RSL to celebrate two local boys winning gold at the Olympics in sailing.  I got on TV LOL.  Here's the LINK to one of them.
Me and my friend Alarna celebrating!

Family photos

My Mum doesnt own or know how to use a computer, so about once or twice a year she asks me to 'empty' her camera memory stick of all photos and put them on my computer.  Gee she takes a LOT of brurry photos lol, but some are quite good.  Here are a few I took off her camera:

Taken earlier this year in Canberra, where Deb lives.  Nick and Kayla have now left Canberra to go live in Canada.  Cant wait to visit them one day soon!  From left: Kayla, Me, Dad, Nick, Deb, Jo and Mum

Gotta wear glasses all the time now lol

Dad, Nick and Steve

Kayla, Jakayla and Rory.  So, my  kids are Jakayla and Rory, and Nick (my nephew) lived with Kayla and Rory.  It was meant to be :)

I don't follow (or like for that matter) rugby league, but my Dad is a born South Sydney  boy and has worshiped loved them all his life.  Rory knows that Poppy loves the Bunnies so he gets excited when he sees the red/white/green.  Which is practically all over Dad's house!

Rory and Jakayla at the front.  Me, Dad, Nick, Deb, Jo and Mum

My guitar playing girl...

My girl has started guitar lessons at school. She is so good for a 7 year old!!!  She got the guitar for her birthday in February from her Daddy.  We also love the fact that her guitar is deep purple in colour...

March Photo a Day Challenge

Oops, i did forget to do the rest of February, actually not completely forgot, just got distracted by a quick trip to Port  Macquarie lol

My girl got a guitar for her 7th birthday, its dark purple and she loves it!

Jakayla loves reading to her brother
Taken at Port Macquarie along the waterfront... we love angry birds!

Oh and today's photo challenge is UP.  This is taken in our study from my chair up to the skylight.  Its very bright in summer so there is a cardboard cut out in it to minimise light, and I cut a love heart in the cardboard!

Front Door:

This summer would have to be the worst summer I can ever remember.  It has rained more days then we have had sun.  So today's challenge of the sun was not gonna happen lol.  This photo is taken on the website of Clark Little.  I love his photos, all taken in the ocean at Hawaii.  His photos are just beautiful.  So the photo of the sun is his, but i took it on my computer :-)

Day 4


OK well i was home all day today, my house is lovely and clean but it also meant i didn't get to run into any strangers.  So i sat on the front balcony waiting for someone to walk past... after 5 mins I got bored so took a photo of a car driving past.  I'm sure they are strangers :)

Happy New Year 2012!

Happy New Year, where on earth did 2011 go?  Im sure I was there, it just went sooo quick!  Rory is now 4 years 4.5 months old and Jakayla is 6 years 10 months old.  My babies are growing up very quickly!   Rory has one more year at home with me, thank goodness... honestly I only feel like he was born yesterday!  He is going to Peter Pan Preschool on Thrusdays and Arcadia Vale Daycare on Wednesdays.  Jakayla is about to start Year 2 at Arcadia Vale Public School and is very excited to be such a big girl now!    I am still working at my local gym every Monday taking a circuit class.  I also work for a recruiter and do resumes and computer work every Wed/Thurs.  We are all very busy :)  Wayne is working hard, people are still spending money on their homes, so he is always busy building, putting up skylights and ducting rangehoods!  Here are some photos from recently...

October 2011...

Rory falling asleep on the lounge, must have been a big day!

The love affair is still going strong
Joanne, moi and Deb
Wayne cut his hand cleaning a rangehood, it got infected and he had to have antibiodics via mouth and then via canula.  A week later he caught Jakayla's flue and due to all the antibiodics killing his immune system, he broke out in a rash that looked like hives.  It was horrible, it lasted about two weeks.
I knew if i found a bottle i would buy one...
