Fun happens when Mums got her back turned!

Moments ago, this happened!

My sweet love who never really gets into anything decided she would be a rebel.
I'm so so proud!
Clover is one of those toddlers who is never in trouble, never does anything naughty...
she's just really really good.
So when I saw that she'd done this....found her sisters face paint and decorated her face...
my heart turned immediately into a puddle!!
I was on the phone and the computer...simultaneously!!
I should do that more often..hehe!!!

swoonsville AND badluck

 
it's been a crazy ass 2013
things got a little out of hand in the bad luck department..
it went from bad...to....worse..
it's kinda why I haven't been in this space...I just wasn't myself
kids sick, husband sick....I felt like I was actually going to loose my mind.
 
but I vow that from this day on, things are going to get better.. things will turn around.
 
and it starts with finding joy in what we have....like paint on baby fingers, and words like
"I wuv you Mummy"....
all clovers 'f''s are 'S's...and just hearing her ask to me to put socks on her "seet"..sends me into blissful SWOONSVILLE happiness...
or one I hear often......
"I so sappy mummy"....
 
 

 You see we had to get all of our bad luck out of the way early 2013 ..because something awesome is going to happen soon...
Passports...are a clue...
and nobody wants bad luck on a plane...do they!!!
With our latest bad luck, layla being bitten by a white tail spider and it turned necrotic (holy shit look that up ...its bad) we decided we were done with the bad luck..like it's a choice...
whos knows maybe it is?
 
 
These little loves of mine have been wonderful through all of our colitis, croup, teeth extractions, spider bites, nursemaids elbows....ughhh...
and their growing...my oh my are they growing..
the only boy is about 5cms taller than me
the rose is up to my nose...wahhhhh...
the daisy hasn't actually grown an inch ..lol..we think shes shrinking...HA!! but seriously she's tiny!
and the violet, well shes turning into a little Miss who is trying so hard to be helpful to me...ohh I love her
and the blossom baby...well...she is hilarious. for example
last night I was looking for my car keys...
I called out.."anyone seen my keys?"..
and a  little voice replied...
"yep ...in my bootie"....
which is her father reply to everything...except he uses the word "ass"...
I should totally give her snaps for saying a more polite "bootie"...
 
we laughed so hard because...
ya know...shes two...and two is cheeky and funny!!!
 

 
so tomorrow is another day...
a day closer to our trip away to meet, our darling friends...
 
I have so much to plan for and so much to do...
but right now...
Im going to run myself a stinkin hot bath ..
and soak
 

 
 
seeya later gators...

hi guys

Hello...
Is anyone there?

I haven't forgotten about you.
I promise.

Things are not going so great here at the minute.
Ulcerative Colitis has rared its ugly head again, and while my husband battles this flare up
I haven't had time for myself, I haven't had time to think.
Ive been busy being, Mum, Dad and Nurse.

Have you ever heard of the saying...
If it doesnt rain it pours?
Well that has been our life of late....
One things after another keeps going wrong
from ER visits with split toes so deep we could see bone, to croup, to sprained wrists, to hospital stays....

I want to come back here....
I truly do.
Even finding this two seconds to type these measly few words was hard.

So while I go and be superMAMA  (erm not so super my mind is currently mush)
be patient with me...

I'll promise more updates soon.

hello

Hello...
Testing testing one, two three...do I remember how to blog?

Maybe i don't anymore...
It's been so long, it's not that I don't want to blog, I do...... i really do..
I've just been swallowed whole by time...
When the children were really little I thought I was sooo busy, and I was...but I realise now, it was just the warm up lap...
Things are way busier now, now that their a little older...plus ya know, Ive got Blossy.. attached to me, 24/7, and that's ok by me really....because I miss her toddler hood already...
but when children are older, I feel as though they need more of me mentally more so than psychically....

When their little, it's a lot of running and dashing and cleaning and picking up...
but when their older, it's after school activities, homework help, school problems, friends problems...hormonal melt downs of epic proportion.... 
and those of you out there who have children over the age of 11 know this...things can get a little LOCO while they grow...like really LOCO ... like "holy shit, is this kids head going to start spinning around?" kinda LOCO....
and so...
with my mind on helping my older two children through adolescence, my middle two discovering the world answering the constant influx of worldly questions and my sweet Blossom baby flat out being the CEO of this house...it doesn't leave me much time for myself...
At the end of the day, I find myself just craving the couch and my husband...I want to lay down with my feet in his lap...and talk...and laugh..and maybe sip a glass of wine...and shake off the day...


below is a picture I sent to a friend to prove, that, yes indeed my breakfast dishes are still in the sink at lunch time...


Some days I feel like Naz and I have got our shit together, and other days...I wonder if I'm the right woman for this job...I wonder who the heck let me be responsible for all these children, when clearly I have no freakin idea what I'm doing....

In all honestly...as crazy as things are around here....I've never been happier...I love this time of year, Christmas is coming, The Violet turns 7 this week....and all is as it should be...



and that folks...
is where my brain is right now....

Mojo

my blogging mojo packed up and left the building...
I've no freakin idea where it went...i even lost my facebook mojo"

I promise it's all beginning
 to come back to me...
Slowly words are being knitted around my mind, and my thoughts are becoming clear enough to type.
I'm happy, happiest ive been in a long time..and I thought i was already really happy..my children are happy...my beautiful husband is happy, and we have been doing 
absolutely nothing much..just living...and playing...and breathing.

I've been on Instagram...a lot..its my favourite social media site right now...if you care to follow my feed my name is

pony rides...

 I'm not gunna lie to ya...
today was pretty awesome!

After lazing in bed for longer than necessary sipping my coffee, I got all my babies ready and headed to my friends house...our holiday buddies ...Ange and Shane have 4 boys...
We ate lunch, the children painted some awesome ceramics she had on hand..
( yep she had ceramic dolphins and puppies on hand...cool huh?)
The boys ran out to the damn and checked yabbie nets, they jumped on the trampoline and had a ball..and Ange and I kinda just hung out...talking about a new idea she had....
It's  a $100 CHALLENGE....
Once a month we will go somewhere...hubbies and children included...and we have a budget for the day of $100 each family, and we will see how much fun we can have on that $100....this month is her choice of activity and next month will be mine...I think it's going to be heaps of fun...
First $100 challenge is happening at a BIG ass rock...more details to come!!!


Twice I had my ladies beg me to have more babies today...just because of this little fella here...his name is Tanner and man o man he's got such a beautiful little face.


They ate icy poles in the sunshine...
and giggled over an ipad game that repeats whatever you say...
Ahem...let me repeat that..it repeats whatever you say...there may have been some choice words giggled into that ipad
that Ange and I pretended not to hear!


Sending some smoochy love here via Instagram to my lovely girl Rebecca in Florida...


Ange has horses..


and she let mah babies have a ride...
I told her today she should teach little people lessons in riding because her and her Mother Annie speak so gently and lovely when teaching...
She laughed...because she's a nurse and already has a job...plus all her babies.... where the heck would she find time to teach?.. :-)
My girls surprised me and Ange...they were super relaxed and happy...
I couldn't see a nervous face amongst them...

Violet gets the first go...


yep even Blossom Baby had a turn...


Hi Mama...


Daisy doo goes next.



Then onto the Rose...


Who led by herself for a little bit...and looked so so very proud!


It was a beautiful day...thanks to our friends...
and this Mama came home so tired..all I wanted to do, was flop on the couch and hang....
but no no no...it never works out that way!!
does it?


before I go..My naz worked his butt of this weekend to build this Bali hut for our pool area and I had to brag about it...he worked really hard...it was just a lump of wood when he began...
I love that he's so handy at this kinda stuff!!
This summer will be extra fun with some pool side shade....


tell me about you school holiday fun....
and have you ever set yourself a special day fun budget and it worked out?

hugs to you all

Oh how I wish.



Yep...holidays are making me happy right now!!!


Sleeping in till 8am.
Letting the children get their own breakfast.
Not getting properly dressed.
Wearing Uggs.
Having a wine in the afternoon.
Listening to children giggle and roller skate around the house.
Watching my Daisy's fingernails grow back, after she nervously chews them at school.
Taking the time to sit and watch a whole episode of "dance Mums" with my four girls.
Talking about stuff with my eldest little guy.
Not looking at the clock...at all really, except the aforementioned wake up time.
No damn school lunches to pack or uniforms to wash.

Yeah...we're one week into these school holidays and man o man 
it feels like how life should be...ya know!!!
Oh how I wish...
