You Missed This: Summer At The Pool







 

The summer just gone had us down at the pool socialising with friends, learning to swim and dropping our school bags at the door and grabbing a towel. It was so refreshing and a memory I'd love to have here on the blog forever..

Sharing something I love with the ones I Love


Tonight I took my family to the movies.

As a child I remember absolutely loved Disneys Beauty and the Beast. 

I had the movie on VHS and watched it a lot.

I remember Mum and Dad buying me Beauty and the Beast on ice tickets and a huge Beauty and the Beast poster for my bedroom wall for my 8th Birthday.

I knew the movie off by heart and inside out and when my daughter was 4yo I sat down beside her on the old blue couches we had in our lounge room at the time to watch it with her. 

Tonight we watched the 2017 remake of the movie I have never fallen out of love with. I still knew all the words, still had tears in my eyes in parts of the movie but what I loved most of all was sitting between my brother (whom was always by my side growing up) and my daughter who was experiencing a piece of my childhood on the big screen.

I'm so happy to be where I am in my life. Sharing life with the people who matter the most to me. Sharing old and new experiences with them everyday.

I love the feeling of being with family doing something I love. 

It was a meaningful night that I want to remember forever.

New Pet Announcement

Okay! So we have some exciting news to share with our friends, family and followers out there!

We have a new pet!

A puppy! 

Finally.. 

It has been a dream of mine to add a puppy to our family once my youngest was old enough to part-take in the responsibility of a dog and it has been an absolute dream come true for her to come home each and every day to her new best friend.

So I know you're all waiting to hear all the details so I won't be cruel and make you wait too much longer but I do just want to say that I am so fortunate to have a beautiful black labrador. 

I had a sandy coloured Labrador growing up and he was my whole world. My childhood was amazing because he was part of it and because of that joy our dog Samson bought to my life I just knew I wanted that for my kids. 

So without further ado.. 

This is Max!


Max has been with us for a week and has settled into his daily routine really well. I am crate training him, have taught him to sit, lay down and jump up on request using hand signals. He is such a happy boy and has already bought so much joy to our home.

So far his favourite things are:

-Mums bed
-Stealing my keys
-His Happy Ball (that laughs when it rolls)
-Running away with his blanket at bedtime
-Chasing his tail
-Nevaeh coming home

In a house full of faces and feet Max looks to me and Nevaeh for guidance and assistance. I think he tends to go to Nevaeh because she was the one who helped bring him home. 

I gave her a day off to come with me to pick him up and she instantly fell in love.

The two of them have practically been inseparable ever since.

Max is totally adorable but is still house bound for now as we wait for his immunisations. He will attend puppy school next month and I so can't wait for him to come with us on adventures with us.


We love you Max!

Darkords



Time with my son is always a blessing. Tonight, after swimming at the pool we came home to our heat box house. It was way too hot for Jie and I so we ventured outside onto the trampoline. Jie was is such a playful mood so after a few selfies we played "Darkords". A tickling game I have played with my kids since they were young. They choose the level by saying "Darkord level...5" and I catch them, throw them around and tickle them until they beg for me to stop. The higher the level the more I tickle them. I love watching them laugh until it hurts. I love being a Mum.
