Our first camping experience ....

....was definitely memorable, my son managed to throw up about 12 times in 12 hours. The 12 hours starting at 5pm in a local RSL and ending at 5am the next morning. The only consolation is that it wasn't at home on my carpet.

Other than that, we loved it. It was only for one night, but that's ok.

He is feeling much better now and will be attending school again tomorrow.

It's been a while

I have been reading blogs while I have been away and keeping up with things, I have just not been writing, as a result of my laser eye surgery, for me, reading the computer screen has been difficult. I am totally fine with distance now and close reading, but the computer screen gives me a few problems. Nothing major, I can see it, it just comes in and out of focus - oh I can't describe it, because I can see, it just is not perfect yet so is frustrating and also makes my eyes tired.

Anyway, I am glad I had surgery and I am sure my vision will continue to improve. Will write more about it in another post.

What else has been going on

This is the last day of the school holidays, we just had a lazy 2 weeks. It was nice not having to rush all over the place, even fun activities can be stressful when trying to get 3 kids out the door on time.

Were going to do a one night camping trip last weekend but the thunder storms put us off.

My dad and his wife have booked their flights and arrive on 4 January, we are so excited, I haven't seen my dad for 7 years and my girls have never met him.

Girls have started Little Athletics and are loving it - thankfully

Miss T turned 5 - and I think each card included a double dose of attitude - she is hard work at the moment - eats everything but doesn't like anything, argues constantly, temper tantrums have started again, I think if I told her Santa was coming today, she would argue that she didn't want him to. Hate is also her favourite word at the moment. Please tell me the attitude will go away soon - very soon.

The girls are screaming and fighting as I type. Gotta go.........
