Back at last....

WOW has it really been that long since I last blogged?????? Well life has been busy, busy, busy, but right now we are all on school holidays and enjoying a slower pace of life.

So much has happened since I last blogged. It would be fair to say that it has taken me a while to get my head around studying again, but I am now well and truly in the swing of it, which hopefully means that I will be able to keep up with my blog from now on. I have handed in my midwifery application and am now just keeping my fingers crossed, probably won't hear until sometime in November and the waiting is HORRIBLE!! There have been quite a few applicants this year so who knows if I will get in, but I guess that I will know soon enough. I have also had mid-term exams which were very full on, but I worked hard and so far have gotten all A's, it's good to know that my mummy brain is still in good working order!!

I can't even think about what we have been up to since I last blogged, we have had lot's of lovely weather so have spent heaps of time outdoors.

There has been pony riding.....
Stomach bugs that required sleeping outside in the healing sunshine.....(not sure why this photo is upside down)
Romantic walks along the beach....
....as romantic as walks along the beach with 3 kids can be........

Then most importantly of all, when I thought that life couldn't get any busy, along came our new addition to the family and yep life got a WHOLE LOT BUSIER!!!!! May I introduce to you our beautiful and extremely naughty chocolate Lab LENNY..........


He has torn so many holes in the kids clothes now that I have stopped even shouting about it.....

Seriously though how cute is this dog, we all love him to pieces, crazy, mad thing that he is.................
Not sure if anybody even reads this blog anymore, but hello if you do and thanks for stopping by. Have a great day, peace and love X

I'm still reading ;-)
We also had a stomach bug and had the outdoor lounge in the sun, my little-big one spent all of Mother's Day out there!

Well done on the study front, I admire anyone able to concentrate on further studies. I guess it's all about what you love and you will make the most fantastic midwife I'm sure. Your passion is very obvious to us readers.

Enjoy these holidays with your loved ones!

Lovely to hear from you again. :) That change from being at home full time can certainly take some getting your head around!

Your fairy is called Tangle Saturnwand
She is a trouble maker.
She lives at the bottom of tangled gardens and in hedgerows.
She is only seen when the seer holds a four-leafed clover.
She wears tangled dresses of multicoloured petals. She has delicate pale pink wings like a cicada.
