It’s been a while…

Where do I start?

I have a new German au pair named C.  Apart from being stunning, she is a dream au pair and she is fitting in very nicely.  And she bakes amazing treats, so we get along very well.

The other big news story is we are moving to Toowoomba, as my husband will be working from there full time as of next year.  Because I love and care for my husband, I wanted to help minimise his commute- so I started researching prices of second hand helicopters.  But alas, it wasn’t to be.  They are too expensive to maintain and operate, and besides my husband doesn’t even have a helicopter license.

We’ve already brought a house. It’s a bit of a fixer upper.

One day it will look something like this.

So many special occasions have passed.  My baby turned 5.

My husband and I also celebrated our 6th wedding anniversary.  I wore the dress I wore for our engagement party all those years ago. My mother practically had to sew me in it – she kept suggesting I wear something else.  Ha! Here I am standing at a clever angle to make me look 5kgs lighter.

We celebrated by seeing the movie Straight Outta Compton at Gold Class Cinemas.  The movie was fine, but the signature sundae was 5 stars.

Finally, last weekend it was my husband’s 34th birthday, which we celebrated with our annual B Cup.  This year was the American Cup theme (32 was Wimbledon, and 33 was French).  My husband was extra competitive, and didn’t want guests to come if they weren’t going to participate in the tournament.

Here we are wearing our matching outfits- role modelling for our boys who I expect to dress identically at times. american cup outfits

Anyway, my husband finally won the tournament, and will get his name engraved on the B Cup!

Hope everyone is enjoying the school holidays x
