Phew! We are back in Oz and we have internet!!!

So sorry I have been missing in action for so long…. but I am here just in time to wish you all a very Happy Christmas!!!


A quick recap of the past six weeks or so:


We arrived in Oz early Nov and moved into a rental property with a nice big room to fit Emmie G in when she arrives 🙂


Emmie G is currently on a boat somewhere between Singapore and here, looking like this:


They have written “Swing Machine” on the box, I hope it is a typo and they haven’t replaced her with a swing set 🙂





Our new house here has a lovely big garden and I have already planted some veggies… now that I have internet I need to take some photos.

Got a new baby to cuddle:


Kids are settling in well, hubby should be coming for a visit soon we hope…

And, well, that is all the news really! I will try and visit blogs now that the net is going. Until then,


Merry Christmas!!!!
