I'm back - Finally!!

No phone or internet for almost two weeks!!! Not good. But it's all fixed now and I am one very happy girl. The local Telstra connection went bang in a big way. All the neighbours had phone lines back on, by Thursday last week, not us...............we had to wait and wait. I could have kissed the lovely Telstra man when he knocked at the door yesterday to tell me it was all fixed.

It's been busy here.

Kayla is now a brace face. Her braces went on last Thursday. She was so excited about them finally going on.

Zac played two games of cricket last week. One on Tuesday afternoon and one on Sunday. They won both games easily. Zac took one wicket on Tuesday. Sunday he got two wickets and a beauty of a catch. He is really enjoying his cricket, which is so good.

I spent a lot of time at school last week. We finished sewing the felt stockings on Monday. On Wednesday I cooked with the Year 3's. It was lots of fun and the kids really enjoyed it. Jarred and Kloe both had class parties and secret Santa's. School is all over for another year - Yay, I just love school holidays.

On the weekend we made some chocolate playdough.MMMM m the smell of this is divine. It kept two little people busy for hours
