April already?

So much has happened since January. How on Earth did we get to April so bloody quickly?!

Anyhoo, to sum up the last few months... Mum and Dad came to visit in February and we celebrated Mum's birthday while they were here. Michael rolled over on his ankle and tore a tendon. I'm seeing a physio for my bad knee and was told to stop jogging (but I haven't). Kayla is getting really stuck into her school work and recently enjoyed doing a big project on Obama. Daniel finally learned to ride a bike in. Grandma and Pa gave us a bit a scare with poor health, but are both doing much better now. I've just sent out invitations to Michael's 40th birthday party in April. The weather is getting cooler and Easter is knocking on the door!

We went to the Australia Day concert at Parliament House.
We really just went to see Bertie Blackman, Michael's favourite singer of the moment.

"Blah blah blah"







Daniel was so good that the lady behind us commented and gave him lollipops!







We thought this was funny, until Daniel tried to run up and get a free hug!!!



I could not WAIT for the air show to be over. Terrifying.







Bertie...

We dropped in on Ally, Joe, Dante and new bub. Had a lovely meal with them as the boys played happily together.

Michael and Nan took Daniel to see the hot air balloons. They were cancelled due to bad weather unfortunately. I was still in bed as they left at some ungodly hour!!

Mum and Dad came to stay in February which was lovely. We had a nice time with them and caught up with Alison and Joe again.




This was a particularly fun night. All three of us were sore for days from hard-core living room dancing!

RANDOM!

Kayla bought me this gorgeous kitschy old painting from a junk shop. I love it!



I painted a scene from the rare book that I spent months trying to find for a reasonable price.



The original.



We finally got a decent vacuum cleaner! The amount of pet hair we sucked up on the first vacuum was horrifying.



We scored Nan and Pa's beautiful old table. Thankfully it fit in our small dining room quite nicely.



So now I'm just getting ready for the Easter break. Things are great at work, we're about to get busy again for Mother's Day. It's almost 12 months since we moved here and since I started working at Prouds. Hard to believe we ever went to Hindmarsh Island at all!

Miss all of you. Take care and stay in touch!
