things have been happening in this house to suggest that I am going through a mid-life change. I dont want to call it a crisis as I dont feel that I am in crisis, rather my life is changing.
As I said in previous posts I am trying to get my weight under control I have joined karate.

My kids are now either in school or kinder, freeing up a few days. And this year I am not dropping kids off at 3 different locations. I think this is why Id rather call it a change. I havnt bought a 2 door car and a toy boy- am still feeling rather secure in the relationship I have with my husband- although a 2 door car for the 2 of us might be nice.
I think its just starting to hit home that I am getting older. I am not old- but am feeling the pressure to grow up- yet also resisting this pressure.
I am a responsible adult, but who says that I have to grow up?

Well I have officially lost my sewjo! This also coincides with me picking up the knitting needles and attempting more than 1 project at a time!

They are actually over!
Can you believe it?!
I am being such a lazy blogger- or worst still- been so busy I haven't had a chance to sit and tell you all what I have been up to.
My husband went to PNG on a missions trip. Building a school for 2 weeks. So 2 weeks of building in the rain and heat, no air con. But the stories are fantastic! The working ethic of the men from PNG is to be envied! Really brought to light how they helped our Aussie grandfathers who walked the Kokoda track.
There was also berry picking. Came home with 4kg of fresh strawberries and 2kg black berries. Kids had a ball- its like a treasure hunt. Not to mention that it was perfectly clear weather, and thus working up a descent sweat!
First days of school have now happened. Me as the mum learning to get out o bed and make lunches- slightly relieved that my husband has made the lunches the the past few days- bless his cotton socks!
I am trying to get fit (and healthy). I do night shift- which does not lend itself to health! So if I can change other parts of my life it should really counteract some of the lack of heath that shift work lends itself to.
Anyway- hope to be getting more crafty now that routine has returned.

He is a Samoyed.
He is gentle, soft, fun, frustrating and he doe the woo woo woo- as many spitz breeds do. He bolts the minute that he gets the opportunity, but loves to be around us. If he gets too bothered, he just goes and finds a quiet spot all on his own.
