Back on board

A lot has happened in the last six months, good and bad. I've lost two dear family members, one way before her time. The day after my last post my beautiful niece passed away, at a mere sixteen years of age. It was, and still is, such a shocking, tragic period for my family. I made the journey back alone to the UK to be with them. I didn't have the motivation to keep blogging, and the longer I left it, the harder it seemed.

But in November we gained a new family member. Our little man arrived and made our family complete.

Here is a wrap-up on the second half of 2013:

The mild winter was spent riding bikes, spending time at the beach (and spotting piglets at the beach!), and parties (where jumping castles launch little girls high in the air!).


The first weekend of Spring we headed off to the snow, or what was left of it. The girls LOVED tobogganing and snowman building and still ask when we can go back. I found it hard work walking cautiously in the snow being 7 months pregnant, but lots of fun was had!

Our first crop of carrots from the veggie patch! Size doesn't matter!!


Mummy-Leila day before bub arrives. A train trip to the city and a trip to the aquarium.

 Bush walks.

And rock climbing.

Family days out.

And a family wedding.

And more days at the beach!

Pamela the blind possum has taken up residence around our house, and dines on my veggie patch!

 A special little girl turned 5 (party piccies to come in another post)


A special little man makes his long awaited arrival (he definitely deserves his own post!)

Summer fun: Christmas tree went up, bike rides, picnics in the back yard, trip to the reptile park, fun times with Granny and Aunty Alex from the UK... and Christmas Day, with a nudie swim in the rain!


Leila desperately wanted a pink handbag, and Santa delivered thank goodness!

Eyes closed, for another surprise...
