Steve has had his 40th.

This weekend we will be going to Adelaide to swap over the bench top. Steve has put in the sink and dishwasher so we are using the kitchen fully now.

Having the kitchen in has been good. I don't have to run from one end of the house to the other looking for some utensil. STeve has moved onto the lounge dining room now. I will take some before and after shots of this too.

As you can see from my last post it has changed quite a bit.

Steve had his 40th birthday three days after my last post. We went all out and bought him a tandem sky dive. He was going to do his jump this weekend while we were in Adelaide but the video guy isn't available so he will wait a bit longer.

My daughter Brigette would like a puppy for Christmas but Steve doesn't really want another dog. We may have to compromise on this and get some other pet.

Kitchen nearly finished.

The kitchen is about three quarter's complete. Steve justs needs to put up the wall cabinet's and install the dishwasher. The electrician is coming on Friday to put in the oven and cooktop. We had a small mishap with the kitchen. We ordered 4 bench tops and when Ikea put our order together they put in 3 white ones and one stone colour one. We will have to go back to Adelaide to change it. Steve also made a mistake with the cover panels. We got 5 small one's and two long ones. Steve opened the long one's first and thought that he had to cut them to size. We are going to see if we can return the small ones and get two more long ones. Oh well. We bought floating floor boards for the lounge dining room today so this room will be the next project we will do.

Steve's birthday is three days away. I cannot wait to give him his present.

We had a great time with Di and Mark here. We went on Pitchi Ritchi Railway on Saturday. On Sunday we went for a walk around the arid lands. On Monday Di and I took the girls and Christopher and Alexander to Whyalla for shopping. We had lunch by the foreshore and the children played on the playground.

I have started our christmas shopping. Hopefully I won't forget anyone and won't have to do a last minute dash to the store.

The holidays are here.

The children and Steve have two weeks of school. We are getting our new kitchen in. Yesterday Steve painted the room and today the tile layer is coming to lay the tiles. Steve is going to start putting our kitchen cupboards together today too. I cannot wait to have my new kitchen.

We are having my girlfriend Di and her family stay this weekend. We will be going on Pichi Richi train ride and going to the Arid lands gardens for a walk and lunch. It will be great to have them stay with us.

Yesterday was my 40th birthday and the children bought me breakfast in bed. Steve bought chinese for tea on Saturday night and we had a nice time alone once the children had all gone to bed. Steve will celebrate his 40th in two weeks so once our kitchen is finished we are going to have a party for our birthday and a housewarming party.

Please pray for a cure for Type One Diabetes
Our sons Tom and Christopher and our daughter Amelia are type one diabetics. We pray everyday for a cure. We do not want one by illicit means though so don't support any organisation that contributes to Embryonic Stem Cell Research.
