Back to work for Greg. Back to school for Jaidyn. Back to reality and deadlines for me. Such is life huh! We had a wonderful relaxing week last week. Greg, Eli and I headed up to Caloundra to laze around the apartment and pool area for 3 nights. We haven't really been away (other than visiting family) since our honeymoon, so it was really nice, and needed. We spoilt ourselves by eating out lots, doing nothing and a little bit more of nothing!
Greg took Eli for his FIRST SWIM in a big pool. It was really exciting to watch, as a goo-gaa mummy, so I took quite a few piccies, with my zoom lens. At first he was a little unsure about it, but thankfully it was heated, so he enjoyed himself soon enough. Little kids get so cold in the water so quickly though don't they. His poor little blue lips when I got him out!! Here's a couple of the pics, I'll have to get in and scrap them soon!
How CUTE is my little man! Wish I got a few more close-ups of his face, but he was intent on looking into the water...
These couple are from when we were strolling through the park at the end of Hastings St at Noosa. Its bee na while since I went there, and I forgot how gorgeous that street is - so many trees! And this park out onto the beach was just lovely.
OnFriday we had a family photo shoot with my friend Deb. OMGosh how annoying was Jaidyn! He will not stay still, so I hope you were able to get some that you like Deb.... very frustrating for this mum that just wants a nice photo... we are trying to get Eli's attention for most of them - can't Jai just keep looking so when we do, we're ALL looking?? Maybe not...
Saturday we headed down to Rozzy and Clint's for the night. Was soooo great to catch up with you guys Rozzy - to see you for a bit longer than just a few hours in the company of so many others too. So thankyou for having us! We had a really great time hanging out with you and hope to have you guys up here to stay with us one weekend when Jeremy moves out. Rozzy took some pics of Greg and I and Greg took some of Roz and I - it was waaaayyy windy so not great conditions, so there aren't many good ones, but I'll upload some of those next time.
So back to real life now. Got lots and lots to do, as it always seems I do. don't know how I'd cope if I had to work too... I don't really cope that well as it is. I know this computer is a real huge part of that problem, and one the I really need to stand up straight and tackle head on. Absolutel time waster. And the Devil has that hold on me right now. Gotta give it all to God I guess.
5 things I'm thankful for today:
1. My To-Do list on SOF which *helps* me organise my time a bit better and get things done.
2. WORD bookstore. Had a nice little shop there yesterday.
3. God's grace, faithfulness and forgiveness. No matter how many times I stuff up on the same thing, He is there with open arms.
4.That my Mum is getting much better each and every day.
5. my gorgeous sisters, who are both overseas now. Love you BOTH!
And a Happy Birthday to my little sis Shanyn who turned 18 on Friday. Love you xxx
