more than a cold

I had such a bad cold last week. It really wiped me out but I still managed to work. If I don't, I don't get paid. This week has been better but there is still the lingering cough and I'm tired. I went to the doctor today and after a bit of look said that I've probably had bronchitis. No wonder I felt so sick. It was more than just a cold.

roast goat

So the colour isn't so great. The photo is from my mobile phone. But it was truly delicious. My brother and some friends went shooting at my cousin's farm. They came back with goat meat. Never tried it before. Doesn't really taste much different to lamb. This dinner was delish and the left over meat my brother made into a shepherds pie which was soooo tasty. He cooks some great dishes. And these goat dishes were definitely worth trying. I'd eat goat again...

hangin' out with family

Ahhh, love hanging out with family. Esther and the kids came down for the weekend and we also went out to Tammy's too. Lots of aunty fun for me. These are just some random pics fun with my lovely family.

Roughing around with the boys at Grandma and Grandpa's. (My mum and dad's.)

Abby made me this great card. Don't I feel special!
Picked up Jasmine at my sister's when I got out there and she looked at me, put her head on my shoulder and was asleep within minutes. Awwww.
Tim takes his move playing Quorridors with Abby, Ben and Auntie Tammy. (Esther and Ezra watching and helping Ben.)
I let the kids run around snapping away with my camera. What fun! Nice snap of the paper aeroplane, Tim looks worried about Australia or something and such a classic of Ben on the treadmill. Such a comic. It wasn't even on.
After some time and a lot of noise Jasmine woke up. Such a cutie. The youngest and oldest of my auntyfiers and my only nieces.

Later big brother, Byron, helped feed Jasmine.

funny kids

I was looking after two boys the other day and I made them a hot milo. I called to the three year old that it was ready and he came out to the kitchen and climbed up on the stool at the bench. I handed him his milo and he started drinking it straight away.
"Where's your thankyou?" I asked.
He looked up at me and said quite politely, "I don't have it with me today."
Ha ha. Really quite amusing though I told him he better find it quickly. He found it after his next sip.

Then later that day he was drawing on a piece of paper with crayon on the floor. With the carpet underneath the crayon was ripping the paper. After trying to coax him to move to the table with it I finally said, "We'll draw on the table." He then got up with crayon in hand and proceeded to draw on the table.
"NO, draw on the paper! I mean we'll put the paper on the table." He he he. I couldn't tell him off for doing exactly what I said. I must be careful with how I word things.
