Here is our friendly visitor.. unfortunately I didn't think to play with the settings on my camera so I didn't get too many clear photos. But you get the idea. From what we could tell it looked like an Eastern Brown.. Only the second deadliest snake in Aus.. but if anyone knows different would be glad to hear it!
The only good thing to come out of the incident was that Greg got in and fixed the screens on the doors.. something I have been asking for for months..lol.. Tell ya what though.. I definitely needed a nanny nap after that!!!
That week continued with Connor in trouble at school and Declan getting nits.. just to make life easier..lol..
On the Friday Declan had an afternoon tea at prep for Mother's Day.. As Nancy and Aidan came up on Friday to look after the kids for the weekend, Nancy came along too.
Now why did we need them.. well something good for a change.. Greg and I were heading off to Cairns/Port Douglas to celebrate our 10th Wedding Anniversary. It is actually on the 13th of May but that weekend was the only time we could get away. Plus it was Greg's Birthday today. It was absolutely lovely.. We flew to Cairns on Fri night and stayed at the Cairns Casino.. Ducked down and Greg played roulette for a bit.. and came out in front..lol.. then back to the room for an early morning room delivered snack.. love it!! lol. And woken to a huuuuge Breakfast in bed.. ahhhh my idea of heaven..lol
Took the hire car and met my brother Brett, and gorgeous Niece Claire at the shopping centre. In the mess that was Friday I had completely forgotten to pack my make up so had a wonderful time girlie shopping with Claire and also spending a bit getting little gifts for her and others for her to take back to Lainey.. so wish we could've seen Lainey as well. kicking myself because I forgot the Camera in the car.. Claire is growing into such a beautiful little girl!
These are the gorgeous flowers that Greg brought me on our actual anniversary.. and my wonderful friend Tanya made us this beautiful card which our friends signed..
Due to the misbehaviour and attitude of our two bigger boys I also cleaned out their rooms .. They now have nothing left but their beds, clothes and books.. My garage is full of toys lol.. Doesn't seem to worry them too much though.. just goes to show how much they really don't need all the 'stuff' in their rooms.. They can earn it back bit by bit as they behave..lol.. not much has been returned as yet..lol..
On the 14th May The school took the kids to Under 8's Day in the park. They had an absolute ball. I supervised one group of grade 2's and the boys were happy to wander around with other parents.. When I caught up with Declan he was very proud of his Spiderman face..lol.. and of course on the way back to the car we had to feed the turtles..
