Even though we don't leave Townsville (moving to Ingham for 10 weeks for Hubs' last placement as an intern) til Friday the 8th of November, the removalists are coming on Monday to put everything into storage, and we are moving in with our friends Haz, Maz, Jaz and Az (Haz and Maz are good friends of ours - Maz and Hubs are interns together - and Jaz and Az are their boys who are the same age as Chanbe and Quindy.) Got it? Confused?? Yeah, me too :-)
But we are getting there! And my stress levels are surprisingly low, hence me feeling like I can spare 10 minutes to write a blog post! There's still a lot to do, but I'm 100% sure it can be done in time for the moving van to arrive Monday morning. And the great thing is, Mum is still around looking after the kids, and Hubs has had most of this week off. He also has 3 days off next week so we can get the house ready for new renters to (hopefully) move in asap.
Quindy has been somewhat out of sorts (probably teething...)
But she's still been providing us with lots of smiles and chats.
My poor little Chanbe. We keep selling the furniture while he's in bed or out with Gran. He woke up the other morning and said to Hubs
"Ummm Dadda, where's the couch?"
But he really is such a trooper, and not to provide TMI but the toilet training is going SO WELL. Woo!!!
There's also been a fair bit of this:
Granted, not the best timing, but Hubs and Haz have been doing some serious male bonding over the kombi. And it makes Hubs happy, so whatareyougonnado?
Don't you just LOVE the matchy-matchy jumpsuit and kombi!!
Oh, and there was also this:
The kids were a bit upset initially, but even though the rash hang around all week, it didn't seem to bother them at all (as you can see)!
I still have a slight rash (this was taken last Sunday, after the incident on Saturday night) and it gets itchy when I get sweaty, but it's getting better. We had NO idea what it was to start with, but then we found the cocoon. We'll be checking from now on I think!
So yes, as well as moving, there have been the usual amount of goings-on. But like I said, my stress levels are way down on this time last year! Hubs and I took full advantage of Mum being here and went out for a delicious Japanese dinner last night. Just our luck. We're about to leave town when we find an awesome place to eat! Can't believe we're already packing this house up. Where did the year go?
Oh well. On to the next adventure!!
