Here's a couple of photos taken of me at 37 weeks pregnant with ???? (number 3). Especially for mum and Simone who have been asking for weeks to see what I look like now. So here it is - it's already in trouble as I've had 23 hours of labor a week ago and still nothing to show for it.
Whilst we were in Bali, it was Jack's 7th Birthday! We went to one of our favourite restaurants called "Massimo's" for dinner. Massimo made this fantastic cake for Jack and wheeled it out on a trolley after turning out all the restaurant lights and with his staff behind him all singing Happy Birthday to Jack.
Check this out - we couldn't find the little toddler bathers here in Indonesia for Mia. So at times she wore a nappy. But check out the size of it after swimming?! I said to Mia "sit down on your bean bag" and she sat down straight away on this massive nappy. It was such a crack up!
The hotel we always stay in, is right on the beach. When it's low tide, it's just so much fun exploring the reef. There are thousands of starfish to be found, here the kids filled up their buckets and made their own little pen for them.
Recently Bridey and Anthony and the kids came to visit us here in Indonesia. We had the best time together. 1 week in Jakarta and the next week in Bali. The kids had a ball!!! Flying kites, playing on the beach, swimming in the pool, etc, etc.
Our dear friend, Rick, who's all alone at the moment whilst his wife is in Canada, suddenly calls and asks to visit. We found out why when he arrived - it was his birthday!!! Happy Birthday Rick! Lucky I had just finished making a cake - a few candles later and VOILA!
Here's a couple of photos of our pets, Jerry the Cat and Chloe the puppy. They are so cute and the kids absolutely love and adore them. We're still in toilet training mode with the puppy (and all the joys that brings with it!?).
We had family home evening with some wonderful friends of ours, Chuck and Laurel. Chuck is the king of cooking sweet, gooey, desserts! That taste absolutely fantastic and are highly addictive. Chuck teaches Gus and Tilly how to make them along with a lesson to go with it. We'll miss them so much when they go back to the States.
Well Tilly's birthday was actually a few days after we returned home to Jakarta. My dear friend, Maggie, was such a wonderful help and created a little birthday part for Tilly at her home. Maggie's daughter, Spencer, and Tilly are great friends. And her son, Keating, and Gus are also great friends.
Now living in Deloraine after 7 years being overseas in: Jakarta, Indonesia; Chiang Mai, Thailand. Also lived in Griffith NSW and Launceston TAS. I have 3 gorgeous children: Gus (12); Tilly (11); Felix (3).
