I took a mass of photos before Russ and Tess left yesterday, so here goes:
ABOVE: Our Australian Family. Russell, Sienna, Bodhi, Tess and Haylea.
I didn't feel like doing 'captions'. The one I love BEST is the last one. Russell and his daughter Sienna. Both stunning.
I hope they have a safe trip home.

This morning I am going to dedicate to getting the house back into ship shape order.
I got most of the washing done and hung out last night, I might try doing that more often. It was so much easier than trying to get it all washed and hung out in the hustle and bustle of the morning.
Once the house is tidy we might go out and do some window shopping. We want to get a new dishwasher and Harvey Norman's are having a 50 month interest free promotion on right now.
WINDOW SHOPPING done. It took Stew and I about 3 hours to choose the 'right' dishwasher, for the 'right' price... and it's sitting in the back of the car right now, waiting for Steve to come home and help Stew put it in the kitchen. AND I paid cash, THANK YOU TO MY MUM for my AMAZING Christmas Present.
Well, we didn't have to wait for Steve after all... Bex and Griffin helped get it half way up the stairs, then Lacy took over. So, Stew has got it installed and now he's looking at the instructions so we can use it tonight.
ABOVE: well, there it is, installed and already done a load of washing. AND now I can have a mat in the kitchen without having to MOVE it each and every time we pull out a dishdrawer (the old dishwashers we had). Yaaaa.
After dinner Stew and I did the grocery shopping, and now it's relax time. FINALLY.
I have been incredibly crabby today, you are so lucky you don't live in my house! I forgot to take my 'night night' pills last night, they are the anti-depressants that help keep my hot flushes at bay. And OMG if I forget for even ONE BLOODY NIGHT I pay for it the next day.
So... I've had hot flush after hot flush today, and that has made me MEGA CRABBY.
I am now going to take TONIGHT'S before I forget again!
End of Day: we got heaps done today, and I'm rather happy about that. The washing is almost up to date, the cupboards are stocked, and we are back to the status quo. 4 Adults, 2 Kids and 1 screaming infant, and 2 dogs.
