A little bit closer

Well we are certainly getting there I moved the hall table to in front of the window in the back room (because I found a hall table that had drawers in it), we had a entertainment unit for this room on order but after 4 months of it not turning up I cancelled it. Off I go in search of something that would fit that I didn't have to wait months for (impatient, well yes that's me!!!). I went down to my favourite store Brescia at Alexandria (yes I am sure that the feeling is mutual) & found the TV unit pretty much as perfect a fit as I was going to get & they delivered it the next day. So then I need a coffee table & after looking everywhere in our spare 2 hours after cricket on Sunday we decided to go back to Brescia & we found this one, well its 2 really. I really wanted a marble one that was just stunning but it wasn't a white white & we needed the colour to match. My husband was really happy that it didn't match because in his words " you can buy a car for the price of that!!!" I have ordered a cabinet for the corner in this room & hopefully it will be ready soon.

Jessica Watson you are a superstar...

Well she was over 2 hours late but she made it & we were there to see her, what an amazing sight, there were so many boats both big & small & everyone was just there to wish her well.
We waited for hours to see her but when that small pink sailing boat was visible it made it all worthwhile.
She is a fantastic role model & I for one must eat my words when I thought her parents were mad for letting her go by herself to sail around the world.
Congratulations Jessica on all that you have achieved I will miss your blogs but can't wait for your book to come out. It was a honour to be part of your celebrations today, thank you for sharing it with us.
On other news my youngest son is on crutches after stopping a ball that was hit for a 4 with his foot...all you young cricketers out there tip #364 don't stop a cricket ball with your foot!!!!
So thanks to him not being able to play soccer today we were able to go & watch Jesse come in....
Cricket tomorrow 20/20 to watch & then a cricket presentation in the afternoon.....spare time does anyone have any?????
Also good luck to the Aussie boys for the 20/20 final on Monday morning going up against England how good would that be to have a win tomorrow what a fantastic "long" weekend !!!!!

After waiting nearly 5 months the console that goes with our table finally arrived from Italy. I was so happy with it, I think that it goes perfectly with the table. We also received the replacement for the glass top that was scratched, so now no-one is allowed to go near it.... It is don't touch it, don't put anything on it, it is just for looking at....hahaha

We have been so busy with the kids sport it is stupid, our week goes something like this Monday- Cricket training, Tuesday - Soccer training, Wednesday - Music, Thursday -Soccer training, Friday- Indoor Cricket & then Newcombe Ball, Saturday- Soccer game & Finally Sunday a day of rest!!!! NO that is now 20/20 Winter Cricket & this little black duck is managing the team, hahaha got sucked into that one cause no one else would do it. So I also now have Cricket meeting's to attend, but to top it off I think that I might do the Umpiring Course so that I can umpire, I took on the scorer's job on Sunday & loved it & we don't have a Umpire for Sunday's game, if we can't find one one of the other Mum's & I are going to give it a crack.....we are not talking Australia v's England here so we might as well.
I have some more stuff on order when it comes & as soon as I get a chance I will pop some pic's on the blog.

One more thing fingers crossed for Jessica Watson as she comes up the coast back to Sydney, I have been following her blog since the beginning & I have promised our youngest that we will go in & see her, I was hoping that she would come in on a weekday but I think it might be the weekend & see above schedule for a spare weekend slot.......none I'm afraid.....
We are with you Jesse, keep up the great work....& we will see you in Sydney very, very soon.....
