YAY YAY YAY GEELONG WON the AFL GRAND FINAL!!!!!!! After a 44 year drought the Cats THUMPED Port yesterday by um lets see - 119 points - yep thats right! Geelong 163 to Port 44. Did the house up for Gary with 100 helium balloons and blue and white streamers everywhere, boards painted up and even painted our windows with cats etc!!!! only had about 50 balloons left by the end of the game as some saw it fit to let them loose........ Jess had her hair sprayed blue and they both had their face painted by me lol - a couple of the kids that came were allowed but others weren't - wrong colours and dance comps in a week!
Anyway that has taken up most of the last week - classes start back up again on Tuesday with a kids class for the school hols - I also have tips and techniques classes, the brand new clock class, clear album and something else - need to check out my scribble notes. FIrst crop night will be held this Friday and then the HUGE opening day on Saturday - Gary heads off tomorrow for an 8 day fishing trip with Pedr, Eric and Frank up to Exmouth - lets hope they catch some fish...... Car also broke down once again - this time it is the thermostat - once Josh fixes that I am taking it back to Barbagallo's to get everything checked cause the more we talk to people it seems that perhaps where we were taking it in Wangara were not doing the right job.......
Going to try and scrap some things today - have a few idea's and a challenge to do for the shop so may incorporate it into a few things I want/need to do!
Anyway the girls are hungry (they have just demolished 6 slices of toast between them and it is only mid morning....) Take care all and last but not least
What a great game last night yay for ht Cats wining by 5 points - Jess and CHionia hadn't seen their dad so passionate about a game before - lol - wait until next week! Looks like it will be against Port Adelaide so will beinteresting to watch Gary vs Pete!!
A quick scraplift off the very talented Amanda Hall

Layout removed so it can be published YAY!!! SECOND! lol Best they have done for a while I think. Anyway Jess had a great day - she came third in her relay and throws and gotpipped at the post by two others for third in her running race. Look at the photo's and check out the competition - Jess was lol. Bought HJ's for lunch for her and we had a picnic at school. Got a bit sunburnt though even with suncream - what is summer going to be like? Jess complaining about the heat already omg~~

A Wonderful Fathers Day - after an early start we went to Bears Rock and spent a lovely few hours at the beach - took about 200 photos lol and just love some of them. The girls had a ball playing and getting wet and fishing although I reckon they were too loud for the fish and scared them all off lol. Yummy roast for dinner and an early bedtime! Perfect day to spend as a family :)
Christmas - not far away - it is September now and before you know it it will be the end of term 4 ballet concerts etc and the usual madness that goes with it. So we have decided to take off YAY!!!!!!! We are heading down to Dunsborough and staying with mum and dad for a week before Xmas and then swapping houses to the GEo house down there just after Xmas - no rushing around Christmas day to visit every man and his dog - no late Xmas eve putting things together - just escaping and having a wonderful time - Xmas morning with the girls - heading down to the beach with one or two new toys - back for a late lunch early dinner with lots of yummy seafood and Xmas specials. Cocktail hour in the spa with nibbles and perhaps the annual cricket game in the paddock! lol So looking forward to it - time to spend as a family :) That is what it is all about :) :) :)
Must go and sort out the details for a boat we have just bought. Nothing is ever easy - it is in Florida!!!! Now to get it here hehe
