I know i am slack!!!

Yes, I know I am a slack blogger. But i havn't much felt like it, i have had one of those weeks that I really never want to repeat. To start with, we lost about 6 months worth of photos off the computer, luckily Nicole has quite a few copies of our photos so we can recover some, then on the weekend i lost something else REALLY important to me, but luckily we found it again. And then i have been sick this week, which meant I missed catching up with my good friend from Uni which i was sad about. We havn't seen each other for about 2 years now and trying to get a day seems to be proving harder than it should be. I have also been staying away from the computer at home, thats mainly because there is nothing on it now that we lost it everything, LOL, but its been nice staying away from it too. So with all that going on, blogging has been right at the bottom of my to-do list lately. Anyway, now that i have had my whinge, i can move on to happier stuff. Last weekend, we caught up with some friends that we hadn't seen for a while and had the BEST dinner, man, those Hilder's can cook, and the kids had a great play too. Then off to the City to stay with the FiNNo's for the night and spend all day Sunday with them exploring the city. The kids both fell asleep in the car, which made for a peaceful trip, LOL, but they woke up at the tunnel which was so exciting for them to see all the city lights, i felt a bit bad that they are 5 and 7 and never seen that before, LOL, but they loved it and we got so excited looking at the lights and going over funky bridges, that we missed our turn off, but we got to see some really cool stuff getting lost. As soon as we arrived at our destination, the kids bombed out in bed and we sat up and had a few drinks. The kids we up bright and early as per usual but it was good to get an early start. I don't think we have ever been up and out the door that early with the FiNNo's, but it was great, i was so excited about showing our kids the city especially as they were so excited the night before seeing the lights. The first destination was the Botanic Gardens and the Children's Garden which was so cool, the kids had shoes off and explored everywhere, unfortunately because of water restrictions the water wasn't flowing, but the kids really want to go back so hopefully next time there will be more water. Then we went to the Shrine, the kids all got a poppy to lay but Jacob being typical Jacob, wanted to keep his, that was until we were leaving and the boys were running from tree to tree reading the plaques and he saw one with poppies layed around it and decided it was time to lay his, it was so nice to see him do that. Then through the gardens to Southbank. We wandered along the Market stalls and Jacob scored a gingerbread man for his "efforts". We watched a street performer, i think they are a bit daggy (of course i do!!, LOL) but this guy did have some relly cool tricks and Jacob was totally impressed with his backflips, I just hope he dosn't try it at home. Then back to the garden's for a picnic lunch. Then a wander around the city, a trip on the city circle trams, stopped off at a few places, including a really cool park at the Docklands. The park was so cool that we didn't realise we missed the last city circle tram, so we all walked back in the rain instead. Normally things like that would piss me off, missing the tram and having to walk in the rain at the end of a tiring day, but it was cool. It was an adventure and it was most definately the company that made it cool ;) After dinner in Southgate, we packed up and headed for home, the kids were so tired they were asleep in no time flat. We had an awesome time and thanks soooo much to the FiNNo's for inviting us along to hang with them for a day on their little holiday. We are planning to go back up tomorrow for the day to go to the Museum with the kids, so that should be good. GGGRRRRRRR ...... I can't upload any pics with this, bloody blogger!!!! So will try again to add pics later. Catch ya's. Oh and happy 100th blog post to me ;)
