The kids discovered our chook 'Moptop's' first egg today - well not technically her first egg, she relocated here from my parent's place - so it's really just her first egg here. They came running & screaming to the house.......i don't think they have ever been that excited even after santa has visited! hahaha
And here's the clever girl who laid it for us.
Hopefully it's the first of many! She's been clucky for a while so it was a long time coming. Now i'm just picturing the fight in the morning over who's going to eat the first egg.......
Been busy around here.......work, specialist appointments, a funeral & some fun stuff like catching up with rellies, enjoying some warm sunny days & bbq's.
Hanging with cousins & meeting new ones.
Bbq's on warm evenings, oh it's amazing how the novelty of eating outside means that they eat all their dinner. Lots more bbq's coming up i think!
Walks in the cemetery (we're not really a morbid lot, my parents live nextdoor to one & we often wander over to say hello to special ones who are now resting there).
Our Lucky Bunny, isn't he gorgeous? You will have to excuse my attire though, according to Amity wearing a traky at home when not working or going anywhere is not appropriate. I got the full on up & down look when she got home from school & told that i can "still look pretty whilst vacuming"! Oh what have i raised?
Here's to warm sunny days, hanging with family, eating good food & less traky daks & rain!
The bees are buzzing & the weather is warming up, Christmas is creeping up on us (why does it always do that to me?) & another year is coming to a close........here's what i am up to this October.........

She empties all the jigsaw pieces out of their boxes, she bites me on the bum when i'm not expecting it, she's learning the art of 'tanty throwing', she pulls the bookmark out our books, she eats soap in the bathroom whilst i'm doing my hair, she wees on the carpet after almost every bath, she constantly pulls her arms out of her car seat straps, she empties her plate of food on the floor, she whacks her big brother over the head & pulls her big sister's hair, she carts dirty washing from the washing basket all over the house, she refuses to wear socks or her gumboots outside, she empties CD's & DVD'S from their covers........... oh she wears me out..............and one day i'll come back here & read this again & say 'o.m.g - i remember those days!' but gee we love her - love every little mischievous inch of her.
