Boy - what a busy week it has been since Garys has been back. Last Friday we ended up with quite a few quests using the pool and saying Hi to Gary again. The car broke down :( and had to be towed home - it is still sitting in our driveway - thought it was the battery but still not going and it has all these stupid codes...... something to be sorted out QUICK SMART! lol
My Christmas Eve dinner was late as we had more guests around and then had to clean upstairs - BOY did I spit it with Jess - atm she is banned from going up there....... then mum and dad arrived just in time to put the girls to bed and get ready for Santa :) :) :)
The lounge room was covered in toys, paper and BOXES omg! Chionia soon got the hang of opening up pressies and the girls got extremely spoilt with a portable DVD player from mum and dad (Nanna and Grandad!) to help with the trips to dunsborough :) clothes, shoes, Barbie laptop, talking dolls, chalkboard, bath toys, books, Bratz dolls, Elefun game, ummm.... Me - I got an ipod!!!! haha took me a few hours to set it all up and then the screen kept closing down on me - took it back and they replaced it straight away - now it works and I can listen to Robbie, Gary got clothes and a voucher for 2 to go to an overnight day spa with dinner, breakfast, hot stone massage, arrival gift :) :) :)
Then it was off to Aunty Helens which started with a couple of water bombs and before long the Forbes water fight was in full force - lots of VERY wet people - Santa came and handed out pressies again! a boot load came home and CHionia loves her Dora fold out bed and Jess has been busy with all her craft things.
Sandra and Gordon, Damo and Lisa, and Chris came down to our place about 4pm as we never quite made it to their's! and not long after they left Helen, Tom, Bianca and Jason rocked up for a swim in our pool and to sit back - I think they would have stayed all night if I let them but kicked them out about 10pm - Gary was asleep by 8.30pm!
Another HOT day and more guests using the pool, Gary went and checked the cray pots with Pedr but nothing and they came around later for tea then Tom and Bianca called in - I left them to it about 11pm - not sure when they all left lol!
Same old - Gary checked the pots again, home just before lunch then I went SHOPPING!!! Got an awesome kettle and toaster (the things that make us happy! lol) and a couple of clothes. Another hot day so afternoon spent in the pool
Thursday Gary went fishing off Two Rocks and caught a 5-6kg Bald Chin Groper - one very happy camper - guess what we are having for tea tonight:) the girls were shocking yesterday and ended up with Jess having a HUGE dummy spit wanting her dad. Early to bed for them it was
Today - Gary is off doing another DTEC course to keep BHP happy and flights are booked for him to go back next Thursday :(
Need to give someone their Christmas pressie today as I only finished it yesterday and with no car atm we won't be going far! lol
Was trying to put in photos but blogger playing up....
