Toot toot.....


This is my boy taken when we went to visit Thomas the Tank at the Zigzag railway last month . he is a Thomas the tank fanatic and with a beaming eyes when Thomas came puffing along the rail tracks ...

Ahh such a big boy now ,,, with a Thomas the tank face painting ,, thank Goodness not an eczema on his face ,,, ahhh he used to suffer from it when he was young ,, on his cheeks, neck , back legs and arms finding an eczema treatments and doing some precautionary measure to avoid a flare up , 7 years old now and cleared up my boy is growing heaps fast...
But ,, he still love the good old Thomas the Tank.!!!

Hurrying Up


As we are built our house we are slowly moving on .. as an owner builder ,, we have the task of finding good tradesmen ,, and believe me its hard to find one...

We sometimes look online finding people around our area there is a freewebdirectories.org to check for , we also ask friends for recommendations , local paper or TV ads .
Specially with the end of the year when most of the tradesmen are busy and will soon be on a holiday its hard to chase them to do a job,,,
We are pushing hard to finish the house before Christmas ,, even if not fully finished but is livable with all necessary amenities...
Its hard to rent ... every week we have to fork out weekly rent and its not cheap eyy..

I just want to start and moving things if I can,,, but there are heaps of things to do ,,, just patiently waiting here .........

Hanging there

The economy is on a steady phase at the moment .. Its good to know that it has pick up from last time when we had a recession and it had affected everyone big time,, we can still feel the backlogged of those things ,, we are still catching up and its like forever gonna catch up ....

Its a staying alive game.

Our business is hanging on and I'm hoping that everything will run smoothly , workers are working hard , no one wants to loose a job or ask for payday advance but merely doing their own job .
My hubby is working hard and doing a great job handling the business.. 2010 had been good and we are still here and hoping for some more years to come and prosper.....

Warming up ....

A beautiful Spring day here,,, thank goodness that the rain had stopped and today we had a warm 24C weather ,,, even tonight I am wearing a short sleeve shirt and I just love it,, no more cold nights and slouchy clothes ....

It is the best time to pack away Winter clothes ,, I 've already done the kids clothes and tomorrow I will tackle my hubby's clothes first ,,, since I have more stuff than him ,, I decided to do mine last.

I packed his clothes in a vacuum sealed bag and stashed away in the garage ,,,so its time for men's polo shirts , shorts , singlets, board shorts to come out of hibernation , welcoming the warm Sunshine of Australia!!!!! ahhh just loving the heat !!!!

Cant wear these....


Ahh this is what I call a perfect Spring day!!!! 25 C heat ,,, I was out wearing my short sleeved T shirt ,, sweating and having my window down while driving feeling the warmth of the day on my face ...

Went straight to shop.... hmmm,,, shouldn't I be outside since it was a nice day?????? but I had to go to the shop to accompanied a friend ,, shopping !!!!!ok special here sale here sale there ... Mid season sale,, and I'm loving all the nice girly clothes at the shops

I tried some blouses,,, but arrggggggg....
the clothes are nice but the unwanted pounds that I kept during Winter had ruined everything !! with a flab there and a jiggling bits here ,, guess I need an Appetite suppressant diet pills to lessen my craving for sweet thing,, cheese cake,, soda and chocolates ........ bad bad bad so I guess I still have time to get up and do something about this ,,, as I always say I must I must I must ....

Missing the flowers


Fresh flowers at home,,,, I always used to have fresh flowers on my dining table when we were staying in our house ,, but a year after we sold our house ,, we are now renting while we are building a new house... I miss having some pretty colorful flowers ,,, but when my eldest daughter finished her last show at the musicale we gave her a bunch of flowers and its at home ...

I took a snap of it and yes,,, I havent had a nice dining table for awhile,, so that was the one missing .....
It lifted my spirit ,, its nice to have something nice around the place ,, the flowers lasted for 2 weeks and hoping that I would be placing some more flowers on the table ..

Now regarding the musical that my daughter played ,, it was High school musical staged by our local area . It was such a good show,, Mic played the lead role Gabriella and she had 5 shows as Gabriella but 10 shows all up including the other casts ,, It was a gruelling 5 month rehearsal ,, she was really stressed out and there are days that would show on face by having some acne break outs ,, good thing she started with her acne treatment creams to eliminate the zits straight away ,,,, she also suffered colds and usual flu but good thing on the week before the show everything went well .
It was fun seeing her act , sing and dance and we know that she would be leading to that path ...


A No NO ......

Yes,,, this is so uncool .....
Where the whole Australian Catholics celebrate the canonisation of Mary Mackillop last Oct 17..

So now we have our first Saint .... check out this site to learn more about Saint Mary Mackillop

The Church does not make a saint – it recognises a saint. Canonisation is the act by which the Holy Father declares in a definitive and solemn way that a Catholic Christian is actually in the glory of heaven, intercedes for us before the Lord and is to be publicly venerated by the whole Church.

BUT...... the said picture was a total blow and a NO NO , when they try to make fun of all the things ... For me ,, it is just not right .......


The Catholic Church is outraged by a men's magazine shoot which pretends to show Saint Mary of the Cross MacKillop in lingerie and on all fours.

The Zoo Weekly shoot features a model wearing lingerie and nun-style headwear and is under the headline 'Saint Mary Mac and her holy rack.'

Another photograph shows a model on all fours with the caption: 'She's begging for it . . . so she can give it to the poor!'

But the church doesn't think it's funny telling News Limited the six-page spread is an insult to the first Australian saint's legacy and is also demeaning to all women.

Picking up

Its the time of the year where everything gets busy ,, and the best time of the year for our business too pick up ,, after the dreaded recession,, things are looking rosy at the moment ..

We have a benchtops business , hubby makes a laminated benchtops and most of the people who orders them are those kitchen places,,, so if it for renovating old benchtops or building a new kitchen ,, that is our business, I help the secretary once in a while but I am the one responsible for paying the bills by netbanking ,, I guess I'll be quite alright with that at the moment ,, I have a very reserved personality I might say ,, I wont be good with sales careerr or anything that deal with people,, I tend to be shy and get easily intimidated so I love staying in the background..
My hubby is a total opposite of me , he can face others and can sell anything,, that's why I leave most of the things for him .

WEll,, hoping that business will run smoothly and will give us a good profit ......

I sometimes keep them there so I can easily access it when I need some pictures for my blogging ,, hmmm... its more than 2 years now since I started blogging and Im still loving it ,,, there are moments that I wasnt posting anything and I blame Facebook for that ,, but every now and then I keep my blog updated.

Want to be like them too...

We love Junior Masterchef,,, since the series of Masterchef started we were such an avid fan , especially when the series 2 started , we were glued on the telly and enjoyed every episode,, my kids 7 and 5 would sit with my hubby and I and watched the show , so when the JuniorMaterchef started we were so excited about it..




The top 12 kids on the show are amazingly good... I am wondering how did they get such a talent in cooking. The food that they are preparing are restaurant quality... They are really good and can outsmart the adults...

I wish my kids can cook like them..... sigh,,,,, not too late... since watching the show my kids are asking me if they can help in the kitchen!!!! Alleluja!!!!




so the 1st thing I did was to buy them Junior Masterchef aprons..... and cross my fingers that in the near future that they will whip a 3 course meal for me,,,,, while I just sit and sip a really good wine...... hmmm,, by that kind of lifestyle I will surely gain weight and might need to take hoodia diet pills ... hope not....
