Photo's finally

Well I finally got the pics from the day I did the demo of the CO2 Racers a few weeks ago.

The track is about 25 meters long and the cars travel along it in around 1.5 seconds. Pretty quick huh!

The Kids seemed to LOVE it.

It’s getting close to the end of the year and things are HECTIC, that’s why I haven’t posted for about a week.


Not too much has been happening, all the kids are well so that’s good.

We have decided that Kate is going to change schools next year but I think Jack will stay at the school he is at now. No point changing him if he is happy there!

Hana chan’s birthday is getting close and the kids are looking forward to going to the island for her party.

And we must not forget it’s Lady’s birthday also the day after Hana’s.
So presents all round!

School Search

Today we took Kate to the Southern Cross school for her to check out and meet some tof the teachers there as we are changing schools for her next year.

I liked it and I think Kate did too.

We have a meeting with The Cathedral School on Monday to see if Kate could go there. Then we will chose the best school to suit Kate/our needs so watch this space.

Another thing is that Kate's Pathfinder is coming to an end of it's life, the lights are starting to not work and it's never worked properly since it was dropped????? That's another story!

So now we are looking at upgrading to the latest in the Minspeak range which is the ECO-14.

It looks pretty flash but I don't know what type of money it is yet? Not even sure if they are in Australia yet?

Kate had an appointment with her peadiatrician today about her rash but the Doctor said that it was not the rash is is normally associated with tegretol side effects.

So that's all good!

Yesterday Will and I went to swimming lessons and Will did such a good job we then met Nana at Lollipops Playland.

After a quick juice and a bowl of wedges it was onto the fun!

Going down the slide!!

Storm (Will) in a Tea Cup

We also met up with an old friend Mick whom we haven't seen for ages.

After about 2 and a half hours we headed for home.

A quick nap in the car and Will was rearing to go again.

The play at home had to come to an end when we had to go and get Kate from school BUT on the way home I picked up some fruit and natural yoghurt and made some delicious Frozen Fruit Smoothies with Raspberries, Blueberries and Banana with the yoghurt.

The Kids loved them in the afternoon as a refresher, I admit I'm a bit partial to them too.

Some fresh Ravioli for dinner and everyone was kicking back for a lovely night of reading some stories.

A Day at Home

After yesterday we decided to have a day at home.

Mum and Kate read the paper while Jack made breakfast!

Will was invited to a birthday party at 9am for a 10am start, no problems, the invitations didn’t go out as planned. But he made it to his best mates party.

Kate and Jack did some painting on the easels that I had made for the kids, while Will was at the party.

Had some great rain last night really need to mow the yard again though!

Tomorrow Donna has a meeting with the principal of a school that we are checking out for Kate, we are going to try and get her to the school that I work and the boys go as well but we’ll just have to wait and see.

This afternoon I gave the old fish tank a good clean, it sure needed it. I pulled out some of the plants as it was getting a bit cluttered so hopefully the fish will appreciate that.

News today of the execution of the Bali bombers, don’t really has any feelings about that in itself but I still feel sorrow for the people killed and injured.

Delica Day Out

Well we finally had our Delica Day Out.

What a disaster.

No not really.

It was great to meet Cooper64, Jim, y0di, Pedro and Byte and there respective families.
Unfortunately Pedro and Byte couldn't come along to Jourama Falls

The drive was great, but as soon as we turned off the highway the heavens opened and down she came.

We parked the Delicas, opened the tailgates and huddled under them until it subsided enough to make a bee line for a shelter.

We (the adults) were soaking wet and cooking sausages in no time while the kids ran around in the rain. Lucky it was about 30deg cel.

It didn't stop us from having a good yarn and chatting about our cars.

Now it's time to start organising the next one!

Jack's blood test?

Had to bring bring Jack home today from school with swollen glands and a fever.

Straight in to the Doctors and he ordered some blood tests of Glandular fever.

Jack was so brave, he didn't even flinch as the nurse stuck the needle in.


I couldn't.

We will get the results back on Mon - Watch this space!

Tests back

Kate got her tests back today, Her Tegretol levels are a bit below?? what they usually run at. So I must stand corrected.

Her rash is still evident though so we need to make an other appointment with our Paediatrician to find out what we can do about it.

Jack had swimming lessons today and is feeling a bit flat, he was quiet upset that we sold our Kia Carnival last night.

But now we have our Delica so that cheered him up a bit.

It starting to get quiet humid here just sitting at the computer I'm sweating like a pig.

I must say that I'm happy Obama won the US election I think it will be a positive change.

Definitely a lot of less dead American soldiers if he does what he said he was going to do, he certainly has a mandate for it.

I Know I've been really slack on the pics but I will make up for it, I'm waiting for a few people to email some pics of the CO2 racers from the other day.

If you are reading this I would love it if you left a comment, I'm mainly keeping this as a record of what is happening in our world but if you do stumble across us pls drop us a line.

Blood tests

Katie had her blood test yesterday afternoon.

She was so brave and the nurses did a great job making her feel at ease.

Can't wait to find out the results.

Built a step/platform for Kate today so she can transfer better at school. Gave it a varnish this arvo with some nonslip glass beads added, should be the bomb now!!

Looking fwd to this week end for our Big Delica Day Out wiht the Delica Club, Ice creams, Sausages on bread etc.

Still having trouble getting Kate's teacher aides to fully understand the 'Pathfinder'. I don't know what to do about it, her teacher has been with her for only 5 weeks and seems to know more about it. She really seems interested.

The guy from cairns is flying down this afternoon to pick up the Kia Carnival we have had for sale. So that's nearly all finished.

Can't wait for Saturday!!

Had a big shop today and dragged poor old Will around.

Got a fair bit done. We just had a swim the water was just perfect.

This weekend we're having our Delica Day Out at Jourama Falls, it seem to be getting a bit of a crowd it should be good.

There seems to be a few kids going so it'll be ice creams all round. Haven't posted any pics lately not much to photograph. Should be heaps after the week end.

Kate has to get some blood tests done to check the levels of her Tegretol in her system (the rash) will try and do that this afternoon.

My personal opinion is that the dose she is on is to high and needs to be cut back, We'll soon see.

At least she shows no sign on her cyclic vomiting or seizures. Touch wood.
