Winter Blues

What a winter it has been. I suppose I go into each year with high hopes for the year that it will be a good year, better than the last, and then life will play a trick on you and throw something at you that you thought would never happen.

This year has been one of those years, and I’m rather over winter and rain. During Northern Tasmania’s floods of August my mother’s house was completely flooded, she lost almost everything. So the last few weeks have been busy, doing what we can to help my Mum out, and its been an ongoing process, but for now things are somewhat returning to normal.

During the last couple of months I’ve taken a few personal photos. Of course my youngest is often the subject of my images lately.

We had book week this year, my daughter being Wanda from the Where’s Wally books, and my son as A Hobbit from The Lord of The Rings.

It was too cold to be a barefoot Hobbit. All clothing sourced from the op shop (thrift) or their own drawers.

My little guy also had a birthday.

And got a GIANT trampoline for his birthday. (I didn’t realise it was going to be so huge but it’s awesome)

Back to the real world

School holidays are over, and the school routine has begun.  I am terrible at mornings and I am missing my sleep ins terribly.  We had such lovely holidays.  Here are some photos from our time.

While things are not quite as busy without all the kids at home, I have some very busy weekends ahead to look forward to, birthdays to plan, penny farthing races to watch and weddings to prepare for. I am looking forward to it.

Trampoline Jumping

During the school holidays I was browsing Gumtree on my phone and came across an ad for a trampoline for $40.  I had been wanting to get the kids a trampoline but didn’t really want to buy one new.

I contacted the seller and organised to collect it.  The lady very kindly said she did not want anything for it, she just wanted to get rid of it and we could take it for nothing.  My husband, youngest boy and I drove to Scottsdale to pick up the trampoline, with the help of my Dad and Jo we dismantled it and brought it home.

This is what happened next….
