If money were no object this is the house I would buy. I came across this in our local rag and I think my heart actually stopped. The inside is not to my taste at all but so much can be done about that. It's just so pretty. If somebody had asked me even an hour ago what my dream home looked like I could not have answered but now I can. Love it, love it, love it!!!!

My Dream Outdoor Table

I have always wanted a very rustic outdoor table, possibly made from railway sleepers, however I have never found one I loved, until now.
There is an old antique warehouse in Mornington that will be closing it's doors soon and while spending a few leasurely hours there yesterday I came across this table. How much you ask??? A bargain at $650.00. However the dilemma is this, earlier this year I gave up on this dream and bought an outdoor table from Early Settler, it cost a lot more money and just does not have the charachter of the one above. Hubby said if we were not turning our backyard into a contruction site very soon we could get it and sell the other. Words of wisdom but still worthy of a little tantrum I think :(
I have not told my sister this story yet but I can just hear her motto in my ears...See it, Love it, Buy it!!!

Happy Birthday Hubby

It was hubby's birthday on Thursday so today we had both our families around for cake. There is nothing like sitting around with loved ones watching the next generation play and explore. Master Xavier being 4 feels he has to be the responsible one with his sister Willow 11 months and cousin Kayla 1. So very cute, makes me realise how much he is growing up. Every day he comes out with the most amazing things and every day without fail he makes me laugh until my sides split. Love you little buddy xx

Fiji Here We Come

Finally accommodation booked, 11 nights at The Outrigger in Fiji. We so need this holiday and as we will begin building when we get back and then will be buying a new house it will be the last in a while. I have started looking on for some ideas on "the Dream Home" and already I am confused as to what I really want. It doesn't need to start as the dream house but it needs to be able to become the dream home. It's all happening so fast now, excited but a little freaked out!!

Flights are all booked for 11 nights, now it would be handy if we had somewhere to stay, I am currently waiting on a quote. I have decided we do not go on holidays often enough to stay in mediocre accommodation. The room I want to get is a bure with butler service, but only if the quote comes in under budget. This holiday had better be good as when we return the backyard will be made into a construction site, which brings to mind the next dilemma, what to do with the four year old and two dogs??

Island Dreaming

I am currently dreaming of lagoon waters and lazy days by the beach, especially since my little household of four are all sick. We are off to Fiji in October and I am so excited, 12 whole days, just myself, the workaholic and the kids.
I think this will be the first holiday I have ever had where I really do NOTHING!!

Here We Go

Well, I did it, I joined the blog world, something I thought I would be terrified of, and to be honest I still am a little.
I am a full time stay at home Mum, my little boy Xavier is four years old and my daughter Willow is ten months.
I used to love to write but for the last few years ( at least over 10) I have not really had an outlet to do so. Therefore I am very much out of pracetice so please bear with me.
We are currently living in our first house which we lovingly renovated. However we are now looking to upgrade to "THE DREAM HOME".
Council has FINALLY approved our plans to build a unit in our backyard and once hubby (builder/plumber) has completed that mammoth task I can start the search that I have been dreaming of for many years. It is this journey that I hope to take you all on with me.
I hope I do the blog world justice.
