Lent is nearly here.

So I am thinking that I will give up coke zero for lent. I drink it a lot so I am going to drink water instead. I also am going to pray the rosary more. What are your plans for lent?

Big weekend.

Aussie Coffee Shop

On Saturday christopher will be two. I cannot believe how fast he has grown up. We will probably have a cake and a special meal for lunch. I am not really sure what to cook for him but will come up with some yummy treat.

We are also having our house blessed. We have a new priest in our parish. He will come and bless our house and have tea with us on Sunday night. We are looking forward to spending some time with him and getting to know him a bit better.

We have had a few changes over the last couple of weeks. While we were in Adelaide my mil and fil gave us a new kitten. I didn't really think I was a cat person till I bought this cat home. She is gorgeous. She loves to interact with people and play with them. The first few days we kept her in the house full time. She moved out onto the verandah to sleep two nights ago. She didn't like it the first night. We could hear her miaw through our bedroom window. When I got up the next morning and opened the door she dashed in.

I wasn't to sure how she would take to our dog Pepper or how pepper would take to her. Well they certainly are not best friends but they tolerate each other well. Maybe with time they will become better friends. We have called the kitten CC which is short for Clever Cat.

We have had some changes in our parish as well. This weekend we were all very sad to farewell Fr Peter from our parish. Passionists have been looking after our parish for 26 years here. They will no longer be a part of our parish and we have a new diocesan priest called Fr. Paul. It is good to have some chnage sometimes but we will all miss Fr Peter. He really did care a lot about our children and making them feel welcome in our parish. He was very good with the youth and interacted well with them. We wish Peter all the best as he moves on. HOpefully we will be in touch from time to time with him.

Back to school.

Back to school

The first week is over and as my dear friend Leah would say, tgif. We have a big weekend too but I won't have to rush around the house each morning like a headless chook and get the children ready for school for the next two days. Maybe I can spend some of that time sleeping in or catching up on the folding or even spend some time on dcf.

The week has been good I have started a new mrol (mothers rule of life). This is simply a daytime schedule that helps you plan your prioroties. The morning routine for each of the children has gone well and the evening too. I have had a few interuptions to my days so haven't quite got the daytime that the children are gone running compeletely smoothly yet. My aim is to have it all running smoothly by week three of this term.

Please pray for a cure for Type One Diabetes

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. Click on the photo of Tom and Christopher to read about why I am against using Embryonic Stem cells for a cure.
