The Family Bandwagon

Our family is spread out across the country and across the world, and what better way to keep in touch than a collaborative digital journal?

Thank you Dayna

Today I received a postcard with Paddington bear on it. Since I think it was posted when Nana's was, my Paddington has been travelling a bit. Lovely to get and I know you have found a place to live, while you were just going to look when you wrote the card.

Funeral to go to.

Just to let you know Auntie Joan (Papa Staley's older sister aged 90) passed away on Friday. She hasn't known anyone for a good while. I'll take Mum to the funeral on Wednesday morning. A celebration of a life well lived.

Movement at the Station

Little Squirty wasn't offering a swift kick to the stomach, but I'm fairly sure there was some first tentative steps to movement last night, I got Glenn to put his hand on my stomach and we both felt a little nudge at the same time, there were a few more squirms that Glenn could not feel. ...Well it was either the baby or some pretty weird gas.

Thank you to everyone for your well wishes on the new home! Glenn and I are loving it, the first 3 days were frantic shopping days, we still require a table and more importantly a couch! We picked up one of those awesome bendy-over lamps on sale from freedom for Glenn's lab, which we have started to paint, slow baby steps, I went a bit "Must get everything done" on a list of things that will probably take up to a year thinking that it was indeed possible to get it done in 3 days, I have never felt so much pain.. after reconsidering it is 10:54 and I'm still in bed.

Looking forward to a trip to Bendigo on the weekend for some more goodies.

Love to all, and big squishes.

The long way home concludes

Today Glenn and Dee collect the keys to their new house. Another step in their adventures. I'm sure they'll post photos when they get the internet sorted. They'll be back next weekend for another load. I know Les would have taken a trailer load and the way he packed it would have all got there in one trip. I'll be happy for the visits the extra trips mean.

Nana got the postcard from Dayna and just loved it. Waiting to hear how your move and new job are going. Much love and thoughts headed your way.

Today I'm out to lunch with the Red Hat ladies. A member is returning to England at the end of the month and she's invited us for lunch at her daughter's. Next Friday is a picnic in the park at Castlemaine. The group has certainly meant more socializing.

Now Glenn and Dee have moved on, I hope to lose the 2 kilos I've gained in the last few months. Difficult to do with my outings that include yummy lunches, but I'll see how I go. Glenn has downloaded more Zumba for me to help.

Lots of love to you all

Back again

Hi all. Well done Dayna for the birthday posts for Jared and Adam. Lisa said Adam has spent his Geek present now and is waiting for a parcel.

Now I'm back and I've bookmarked the page, I'll remember to check in more often.

Looking forward to the photos from Cardiff and soon there'll be photos from Cockatoo as well.

Two new babies this year will be very exciting.
Lots of love to all of you
