Trip to City with Chloe

On the last day of the School Holidays Harrison, Matthew and Chloe had a trip to the City. They had lunch at Darling Harbour and then a walk around Circular Quay. Chloe and Harrison seemed to fight about most things. Think back to your own childhood and remember what fighting with a Girl or a Boy in your class usually meant :) . 1783

Kitchen Update Gas and Water on

We are soooo close to having a fully functional kitchen. The Water and Gas are on so no more Microwave only meals and we can wash up in a real sink :) . We think we have picked the tiles for the splashback and hopefully the electrician will be here this week.

Crazy Ikea!

1774 So today is Anzac Day which means its a public holiday. Most shops dont open till 1pm. Last weekend we purchased some Barstools for our new Kitchen which where too big. Trudy and I decided to get there early so we could get the kids into the play area. Bad idea! This picture shows the scene at 12.45pm. Needless to say we exchanged our stuff without looking at anything new!

Trash or Treasure?

It once served the boys well, but now their old Mac is for the trash :( This weekend is council cleanup which means piles of rubbish on everyone’s nature strip, and men (mostly) driving flatbed trucks up and down the street, picking through the junk.

UPDATE Someone collected it! I really hope they aren’t hoping to use it. It sat out in the elements for about 2 weeks before I moved it to the nature strip for collection.

Next stop, water and electricity and then we will be all done. Trudy and I spent the rest of the day cleaning and putting stuff into our new cupboards.

Kitchen Update - Cupboards installed

So the cupboards are in and as you can see from this image, Trudy is very happy.


The granite guy is coming on the weekend. Hopefully by Sunday we will be back to some sense of normality.

Jorja Turns 1


I cant believe it, Jorja has turned 1 already! A few weeks ago we went to her birthday party. The boys had a great time (mostly in the jumping castle) and Toby made an awesome cake! If the building thing doesn't work out for him he could move into the cake business The rest of the images are here


New Kitchen

1525Well after 11 years we are finally doing it! Its time for a new kitchen. Trudy's dad and I ripped out the old one (its now on the front lawn :) ) The walls have been re-clad and the floor sanded. Now all we need is the kitchen to be installed. (gonna leave this up to the professionals)

Coke and Mento

So have you heard what happens when you put Mentos into a bottle of Diet Coke? Well on the weekend we had a go at it. Truth be told it we probably shouldnt have used generic brand cola and generic mentos! :)

Happy Brad?

Yeah wordpress for the win! :)
