Phhhhew!

What a week last week was!!  I'm still recovering!!

First was Cooper's swimming Carnival on Monday.. i know there was a reason they were having it so early this year, i just can't remember what it was....

Then Claire's athletics carnival on Tuesday... this too is early this year to tie in with the national championships which are in Darwin this year.  For obvious reasons, nobody wants to be there too late in the year!...

Then the road trip on Thursday for Claire to compete at district level for cross country (which she managed to get into!!) ...

That now puts Claire in the district cross country team, the district soccer team and she will also go on now to compete for entry into the district athletics team!!!  phhhhew...

And would you believe that i forgot the camera for all three events last week?!!  Unbelieveable!! 

In between all this i raced around like a woman possessed trying to get Troy and the boys organised for a trip down to Brisbane to visit grandparents and check out our possible new camper trailer.  So, having packed them off on Friday morning, the girls and i have been kicking back and consequently had a very lazy weekend!  Claire had a couple of friends {the twins} over last night for a sleepover and i was really pleased to see them drag out the Monopoly of all things!!  It was so good to see, in this age of Nintendo DS and Wii, that they have contentedly played Monopoly for the best part of yesterday afternoon, and this morning too!




This was Claire's stash of cash and property... the twins were left with nothing!  Not at all surprising really.  Claire has an amazing respect for money!  She loves it!  lol.  Her bank account is so much healthier looking than that of her older sister's even!!  I hope this 'knack' follows her into her adult life too!!   :))

Nothing scrappy to share just yet... but i've been super busy on that score too.  Will be able to share in a couple of days.

oh .... i just can't help myself!  lol


thanks for stopping by lovely ladies...

What great achievers. Awesome effort and I still love Monopoly. We have Shrek and Ben 10 monopoly which just isn't the same but I think in a few years we can move onto the 'real' Monopoly.
