Been AFK

AFK - away from keyboard.
OK, so that's a term Greg uses on his World of Warcraft game, but I haven't really been on the computer so much lately... (I just checked my bloglines account and I think it would be best to just ignore it, there are so many updates it would take me all day!)

Just a quick run-down though:

Greg has had a week and a half off work. Been SO GOOD!! (he goes back today :() We didn't go away or anything as we are saving for our family holiday to Mt Gambier to visit Greg's folks in April. We got a new computer though - so good - our poor old monitor was warped and dying - this new one is a lovely big widescreen - love it! We're also on the hunt for a new car. Have a friend who's Dad is a car broker though so he's doing the hard work for us, yay! We've done a couple of other bits and pieces we wanted to get done, but just really enjoyed relaxing and spending time with each other and the kids.

Greg is looking into changing careers. We've been looking into him starting an electrician's apprenticeship. We're both excited about it. He's put in his resume to one of the apprenticeship companies and now we're just waiting to hear. I think it will be the best day when he gets to hand in his resignation and leave the world of retail forever! Prayers for the right opportunity will be greatly appreciated :)

I'm still busy in the nappy-making business... I have my first 'commission' job which I'm really excited about - making ten for a friend who's going to start on cloth (yeah!). I'm a bit of a perfectionist though so have been spending some time researching and seeing what other WAHMs make, I want mine to be perfect (have to remind myself I'm still fairly beginner though so not to compare myself to those who've been in the business for years! we all start somewhere.) I hope to eventually be able to sell more. We'll see where God takes me with that one. In His hands really.

Eli still won't say 'monkey'. He giggles and screws up his face and says' Li-Li'. Its all a big game now. Maybe one day he'll realise he's not actually a monkey.

We are getting the babies dedicated at church on the 2nd March. Really looking forward to this special occasion. Unfortunately Greg's parents couldn't come up, which they were originally going to do, but my Nana will be here for a visit at the same time, so will be nice to have her there. And my sis will be here for a week with Emmeson too.
I found a dress to wear too - so pleased with my purchase. Got a long dress and a thin cardy-type wrap to go over it - $90 value, all for $35! What a bargain!! Chuffed with that.

Lani is on the move and getting into stuff! She's crawling really well now, getting quicker too. Her fave maughty thing to touch is the receiver on the TV... *sigh* we just got over Eli touching it, and have to deal with it all over again. When (if) my BIL moves out, we will have the playroom and a DVD player downstairs for the kids so they won't touch Greg's equipment anymore! We can't wait till that day :)

Jaidyn started going to Boys Brigade. He's loving it. He really needs something that is 'for him'. A lot of life revolves around the babies at home, and having to share his toys or keep his door closed etc, so its great for Jai to be able to go and do something that is with boys his age. And its a great group with solid Christian foundations and discipline, which will be great for Jai. The week before Easter (only a few weeks away really!) they have a father/son camp. We are really hoping Greg can get the Saturday off work, coz I think this would be really GREAT for them both and their relationship too, which is rocky at the best of times.

Well, that's it in a nutshell I think. Probably be back in a couple of weeks time (seems that long between posts these days - but that's ok with me). xx

Cool about getting a new computer. I bet your loving it. I got my new one last year and I was thrilled.

Wishing you all the best finding a new car. How cool that one of your friends has her dad in the right job. I hope he helps you find the perfect set of wheels.

Also sending good luck vibes to Greg as he figures out his next career move. It's tough when your not sure what you want to do isn't it. I'm sure God has a wonderful plan. Just keep the faith and he will show you what's on the agenda.

What happened about Greg's application into the Police Force?

Fantastic news that your nappy making business is taking off. I am so proud of you. I bet your customers are thrilled with the goods. Well done, your so clever :)

Sounds like you made a great decision in sending Jaidyn to Boys Brigade. It is important for him to have something special for himself. I hope he makes some new friends and has lots of fun there.

I used to be in Girls Brigade up to age 12. I remember having lots of fun, winning challenges and getting badges for doing different activities. We even had camps sometimes.

Have a safe week Nat and thanks for keeping us up to date. Bye for now love from Susan (smiles1965) from Scrapboxx.
