Happy Easter!!!! It's good Friday, which means the beginning of a lovely long weekend and some quality time spent with our amazing family..
Our move to Queensland was a lifestyle choice ( The best move we ever made!)as our eldest daughter was diagnosed with leukaemia almost two years ago. She's still on treatment and doing very well, but sometimes we end up back in hospital with mishaps..

Which brings me to write this blog! Alex is back in hospital at the moment, being an absolute Trojan... We re lying here together reading trash mags and drinking hot Milo... And writing blogs! We re hoping to be out for Easter... It's looking good! I just wanted to say a big big big!!! Thankyou to all the amazing medical staff who look after all these amazing kids... They make the stay a little bit easier...

Remember it's Good Friday... Be good and donate to the Good Friday appeal... It makes a massive difference to a lot of families...

Eat some chocolate!!!!!

From Hell to Hamptons!

Okay... so maybe it wasn't that bad... I did always look super gorgeous in my matching pink rubber gloves and polka dotted shower cap( keeps paint off your hair).  Ahhh...  glamorous days... Anyway, its been a pretty amazing 5 weeks to get to the Hamptons, well worth it. I'm still pinching myself.  Mind you, I never want to paint anything other than my toenails ever again. We have learnt a lot along the way, so I thought I would bore you a little with some before and after photos.
      Don't laugh too hard!

The wonderful Grandads that made our life so much easier
Yay! Paint!

My Dad and my Uncle (amazing electricians) put the lightshades up.

God.. I love white
