The end of the holidays

I can't say that I have spent this holidays lazing about but I can certainly say that I have had fun. Spending time with family is great, even if it means that our house feels like it's bursting at the seams!

My working week was seriously shortened as my long Monday was a public holiday and Friday was my council's picnic day, so I only worked on Tuesday and Wednesday! Mum did a great job looking after he children, she even sat through the Smurfs movie.

Dad, Tim, Shona, Pumpkin and Gumnut arrived on Thursday evening so, after coffee at Cache and a little shopping, Mum and I spent the day cooking and changing sheets. Bethany was very pleased with her babycino even though she really wants an 'adultcino'.

On Friday we drove out to Junee (luckily I don't tire of the licorice and chocolate factory) and as we arrived a group of vintage cars pulled out. Mum and Bethany were talking about how old they were when Bethany encouraged Mum with the comment that while she was old, at least she was in the New Testament. For the rest of the stay we referred to the age of anything by which testament it must belong to.

We all love having cousins around and my three played so well with Pumpkin and Gumnut.

It wasn't only the Wagga children, either. Uncle Andrew was a big hit.

Now, the house is quiet and full of clean but not folded washing. Back to school tomorrow. At least Bethany is excited about that. We need to plan for Christmas when we will be together again with  the addition of the Melbourne crew. We definitely can't fit another five people in this house, does anyone need a housesitter over Christmas?!
