So much to catch up with!

I haven't seemed to find the time to blog since August! I suppose it's mainly because we have Stuart, Cherie and Lois living here with us. We often just sit and watch Lois as she is very cute, entertaining and extremely time-wasting! It has been wonderful having them here. Lois is now just over 5 months old and is discovering toys to bang and suck,as well as faces and hair and tablecloths to pull. She is also beginning to roll over.

Going to play group at their church in Charnwood

Lois is very alert and watching your every move !
 Stuart is doing well with his course while Cherie has been looking after Lois wonderfully well. Cherie is also really enjoying cooking in a kitchen with an oven. It has been a great help to me and we have been very much appreciating her delicious meals and all sorts of home-made cookies.
Granddad loves spending time with Lois and she loves him.

Yet another "Book Week" at school and a quick outfit to be the  "Mad Hatter"!

Solar panels are now installed after many months' delay, but are not connected as yet!

These solar  panels are so heavy. We were amazed to see the men able to carry two up to the roof at a time ! One at a time was a big ask!

Mum and I had fun on the Bus trip to Oakdale and surrounds on October 5. I took Dad's place, as he wasn't well enough to go.

This week marked 2 years since I was diagnosed with breast cancer ( Oct 6, 2009). It's been a long two years, but I am very glad to be alive and relatively well these days. Still dealing with side effects from the drug I need to take, but am doing pretty well overall. I am working the equivalent of three days a week at school and managing that quite well.
Richard has just finshed three months full time  on a contract with Dept Health and Ageing. He now moves to three months of part time work in the same place. He is hopeful that they'll be able to extend his contract past the end of this year.
He just flew to Melbourne this week to pick up and drive home our new car! It's less than  one year old. he is very excited!
