The other day, before the 'FLOOD' Bex and I went shopping for the Bumbo seats for Keera and Dante.
ABOVE: I bought them a new bouncinette, it was supposed to be their gift when Dante was born, but they had the little man a bit sooner than I expected. Oh well... they have it now.
ABOVE: funny, he doesn't seem to be that thrilled about it!
ABOVE: it plays music and you can add all sorts of things to the side pieces for baby to play with. Those side things can be moved right in front of the baby, or pushed back so you can get him in and out easily.
ABOVE: something tells me Steve is going to enjoy it more than Dante!
ABOVE: Dante having cuddle time with his Daddy.
ABOVE: Lacy having a cuddle of our wee man yesterday...
ABOVE: The kids got very hot playing on their skateboards, so the big blowers in the garage came in handy!
ABOVE: as you can see, Brylee got VERY HOT!
ABOVE: I can't say enough about how amazing 'Smartbox Storage Company' were yesterday. They had that container here really fast and it was just what we needed.
ABOVE: on the right, our neighbour Stu, he brought over some cold beers for the guys. Griffin tried to snaffle one, hence the laughing!
Today? Please don't let anything happen! We all need a quiet day, with no stress or noise.
Well... noise unfortunately WILL BE part of the day with all the blowers and dehumidifiers blasting away.
But... we could go out for some peace and quiet... maybe?
Well, because the constant LOUD noise from the blowers etc, we had to go out... Steve and Bex took Dante to Sylvia Park, Stew, Brylee, Griffin and I went to Albany Mall, where I found 3 more cute wee bras for Brylee.
I bought her one at Christmas time, and she's been LIVING IN IT ever since! So, she's a very happy girl.
ABOVE: These are the smallest bras I have ever bought I think... 8AA. Miss Brylee NEEDED them.... and it's almost time for our little 'Birds and the Bee's' talk too! Wow, time sure does fly.
Walking back into our home just now was dreadful... it's like a tropical jungle heat, with NOISE.... LOTS OF NOISE. Hopefully in another day it will all be dry???
A lot of you have mentioned us having to go out and buy heaps of stuff due to having stuff ruined in the flood. BUT... there is only ONE casualty that we can find!!! My blue computer desk that was downstairs is ruined... and nothing else!
No other CONTENTS that we can see that is.
There is the flooring. And maybe some of the kitchen cabinets... not too sure about what else structurally yet.... it will all have to be looked at by the Assessor, who hopefully arrives tomorrow.
When we left this morning I was feeling really down, but getting out and about has done heaps for my mood. Feeling much more cheerful now.
I know there is going to be a lot of hassles in the coming few weeks with the flooring being replaced etc... but we will get through it, heaps of other people have had worse happen and they have managed, so can we.
It's not like we haven't been here, done this before! This is the THIRD big house flood we have had.
End of Day: what can I say about today? It was hot. It was noisy. It was OK... cos I haven't even THOUGHT about pulling me hair out.
