Ok so I haven't started dinner yet.But I did go feed the bunnies while these's photos loaded.

Here's a couple of shots from Janine and Mike beautiful day. Posted by Picasa
Here are my Babies sleeping their first night in their new bedrooms.The excitment was unbeleaveable after building your new home for just over 3 years.
We are all high with excitment still.And very tired too.

We have had a very busy few weeks Janine and Mikes Do(which was great and we all had a great time and lots of laughs and it was great to see Janine and Mike course,Ann and Michelle.)we moved over 3 days,Max turned 4,Katelyn had 2 shows for her Tap Dance,our Wedding Ann',2 lots of visitors,cleaning,unpacking new furniture ,oh and more cleaning.

We had our brand new leather lounge suite here for a day and a half before we got it unpacked.LOL.And then it was my Dad who did it for me.Thanks Dad.

There has been a few teething problems,but who cares,we are here.And who needs to cook in her brand new oven anyway.We have a BBQ.LOL.

But it better be going soon so I can bake Xmas cake.

Max's Bunny died on its 3rd night here as our neighbours dog came over and hassled it.I will be having some strong words to say to them!!!It was so heart breaking as we have only had Maxine for 1 year and 2 days as Max got her for his 3rd birthday.
And to twist the the knife alittle more she has 5 baby bunnies(only 3 weeks old).

So now we are hand rearing them.They are so cute.The morning Maxine died ,Holly (Tonys niece) rang and said her parents said she is aloud a bunny for christmas.That nearly did me in as I was so frightened they may not make it.Holly wants the white one.It's nearly been a week and they seem to be doing really well.Fingers crossed.

I will put some photo's up in a few days of our cute bunnies.

I better go start dinner.LOL.Tired children.

Dave's op went well.It took about 2 hours .

Mum talked to him at 7pm and he couldn't stay awake to talk.

So I will talk to him tomarrow.Sweet Dreams Dave!!

Ok back to watch Bad Girls with Tony.
I am thinking of my younger brother Dave today as he is having his back opperated on today in Invercargill.I wish I could be there with him.

It sucks living at opposite ends of the country.Oh funny I just received a text from my sister in law erin.He has just gone in.

Dave was looking forward to the sleep.LOLHe has been going bad on the farm trying to get everything finished.

Great news the plumber is starting the outside drains at our house today.It will be great to have toilets.LOL.

Who is going to "Scrapped" the Movie?

Well better do some more jobs on my list.

Our day went bad at lunch time today.Mark a friend who is doing some work for us at our new house called to say that he found the back door to the garage open and it had been jimmie open.I went all cold while Mark continued to tell what had happened.All those feels come running back.Panick,fear and the need to get justice(I really mean to beat the c&*p out of the low life who have done this to us again).

We dropped Katelyn and Max at my lovely friend Keren's as we didn't want the kids to know.Our shipping container was robbed a week before christmas last year and the kids didn't held that well.
So we are keeping it from them this time.

Luck our security man isn't one of the guys who is holding us up.And the alarm sent them packing.They only got into the garage.Thank goodness.
So I would hate to think how much the locksmith bill will be.

It rained here today so we didn't get any painting done today.The kids had a great time play fight with Tony and watching videos.

I am off to bed now.

Saturday, October 21, 2006

Oh and our neighbour Dave came over to help design our new garden.He has a native nursery with his wife Sue.They are cool neighbours.

After afternoon tea we had a water fight with water pistols.Great fun.

Go Wellington for the rugby tonight.Mum is going to the game with her twin sister Dallas.That will be a blast.They both back opposing teams.LOL
