I have the internet back, and to be honest i'm not as excited to see my old friend as i thought i would be (ok that's a lie..it has been hell i tell you...pure hell), but i am determined to spend less time procrastinating on the internet drooling over crafty blogs and other photographers work and more time doing things that i should be doing (like sleeping considering it's already almost midnight...oops).
But i have also been taking plenty of happy snaps of the kids and our new house in the last two weeks and so i've popped in to share some. I don't know where to start really, so the beginning sounds pretty good for now, i'll do the rest later.
We moved in on the 22nd, not much to say about that really. A lot of stress and mess and shouting and confusion, but nothing major was broken and nothing important was lost so it wasn't all bad.The first night was a bit scary. New house, new noises. I was convinced i heard people waling up and down the deck all night and it didn't help that the neighbours decided to have a bit of a early christmas party. They were up swearing and drinking for quite a while. And just in case i wasn't nervous enough already they decided to let off some fireworks in their back yard and scare the crap out of me a little bit more. I slept the rest of the night with a knife under the bed just in case ( i wish i was joking). But thankfully things have calmed down and I have had no troubles from them at all since. And i have slept much happier since (although still with the knife under the bed...for a little while yet)
Christmas came and went with the typical excitement from the kids. I managed to do the santa thing solo without forgetting anything. And the kids had a great day visiting both families which was nice. Noah had a ball, more with the paper than the presents but he loved seeing everyone and decided that it was all too exciting to sleep.
The kids didn't wake up too early, about 6:20 i think. It was a challenge to help them open up things and put things together on my own, but i did it. I even managed to make them pancakes for breakfast. Luke came and picked them up just before 12 and took them to have lunch with his family, while i went to my parents. And then he dropped them off there for tea. They were spoilt beyond belief by everyone, but that's what christmas is for i guess.
Anyway, i have put a few more photos up on the other blog here, i shoudl probably go to bed now. *yawn*
