visitors, hospitals and more

well it is really becoming winter down here...we have had some very chilly days. some days not getting much past 4 degrees which is mighty chilly. it hasnt been to bad the last two days or so over 10 degrees cause of the cloud cover, but its still two jumper weather!

Things to be happy about....gas heating, electric blanketS and wool slippers!!! the other thing is pay tv...oh god i have never seen so much afl in my life i couldnt stand it and went against our we dont pay for tv rule...and im really enjoying it....and thankful i dont have to watch afl anymore!

over the last few weeks we have had lots of visitors, it started with my parents for the long weekend. They arrived friday, saturday we went to a fantastic luncheon that my dh cooked for....YUMMO...all the wines were nicely matched to the dishes, we got the bus from avoca it was a fantastic day. sunday dan stayed home wiht the kids and heather, dad and myself ventured into melbourne and the dfo. I came home with quite a few basic items like long sleeve t's and stuff like that and a big thick coat for dan. all in all quite a successful trip for shopping is great fun when there r things u want but i have been days when it totally sucked!, monday my parents went home and dans sister and mum arrived. we didnt do anything to exciting as its hard with school and commitments all being at the beginning of the week and then the end of the week it rained which kept us all home in the warmth. We did get out to a local lookout point just a few ks from here, where i took a few pics. For our girls it was their first meeting with aunty sam and their grandmother on the jones side.
i love this photo its just so lovely, we r hoping to print it out and send it to aunty sam shortly who has just moved to canada for the next 6 to 12 months. of course emily wasnt really into cooperating, not knowing people is hard for her. by the end of the week she was doing really well with nanna jones which was nice
and heres one of the girls...jsut cause

and our hospital visit...oh my poor little emily ran straight into the corner of a wall yesterday afternoon which saw a very quick phone call to daddy and then emergency in the next town which has our hospital. we had bloody everywhere.....the scrapbooker iin me says take a photo the mother in me can hardly look at her head without bursting into tears. I can be strong and independent until it comes to the soonn as something is wrong with them i fall apart. It was the longest 15 minutes of my life holding a tea towel to her bleeding head while int he car...thankfully it stopped just before arrival at the hospital. thankfully it was glued shut as we were not looking forward to treatment at all. Really u wouldn know she hurt herself! she is running around like nothing happened at all....THANK GOD!

With everythig our kids have done (including our rascal Alex LOL) I'm always amazed at how quicky they recover. Hope your Miss Emily is doing ok, sounds like she's healing well. Poor darlin though, and poor mummy too.
