Here I go again wanting to switch things around in my home, but am sooooo undecided.

I have 2 particular rooms that I cannot decide which should be which ie. playroom/office or Cruise's bedroom.

One of the rooms is little (really should be an office) and is off the family room. Currently it is Cruises room. The room looks great and fits everything well but it has always bugged me for it's overall size and position in the house! While he goes to bed fine and sleeps through everything, he rises early as everyone wakes him.

Then the other room I have is next to our bedroom. Its quite big and I currently use this as the playroom. The kids do use this room for all their toys, mess, dvd watching and xbox. However, I have had this as Cruises room once before. I then used the other room as the office. While this worked well I was struggling with all the toys, mess and no where for them to go and 'do their thing'. I also liked the idea that the kids weren't sleeping right next to us at night as Andrew and I like to hang out in our room watching tv and talking.

So the question is, which is the best option....?

Points to consider:
Little room for Cruise - then I big room for the kids to hang out in all day?
Bigger room for Cruise and find alternatives for toys and play area?
Do I leave the tv and xbox in the current playroom which will then become Cruise's room, or does the kids tv become extinct?
The small room that becomes the office - can this have a tv in it for the xbox and kids dvd watching? Or will 3 kids and I all be hanging out in a tiny room as they play games and I blog?
Where will I put all the kids toys and where will I encourage the play?

OMG this is turning into something ridiculous isn't it??? Haha. I have swapped these rooms so many times but can never decide so I switch them back again!

If you have any ideas I would love to hear them!!


I have been tagged by the lovely Alison with a 5 things meme.

Not good

My sister-in-law's brother and his wife have had a critically ill baby this week. Things are very touch and go. Baby Lucy is very tiny and very very sick. A battle begins and emotions are overwhelming. Telstra Child Flight have taken the little one to Sydney for the best possible care.

Too much to catch up on

Well this could be a long one! I have been away from blogging for weeks so now I feel like there is so much to catch up on...

Christmas Time.
This is what I got....

And this is what my husband got!!! He is pretty happy with it and so he should be (it cost too much money just to camp in hahaha).

My boys on Christmas morning...

Very happy here..

This is the aftermath..

Going on holidays! I am still working this new camera out, so forgive my unfocused photos!!

This is the view from out beach house!

Some running races...

Feeding time!

Look at what the boys kept themselves occupied with while the Mummy's and Daddy's rocked the whole neighbourhood with our SingStar addiction hahaha!!

Smiling faces

At the beach (and what is the go with all these photos being on their side?? Sorry about that!).

At the Zoo

What a bad mother! The toilets were too far away and no one was looking... HAHA

On the warf

Mini Golf

More food...

And look at what we saw on the side of the road near our house! The kids thought it was fabulous!!

And now look at was IN our car when we pulled up for petrol! I went inside to pay and my husband said very calmly when I got back in, "look at what we found". I absolutely pooped myself as it was on the dash in front of me!! The kids were not frightened at all.

My boys

I have been so busy lately and I have so much to do at home. Kids are on holidays, swimming lessons, my eldest is starting school this year, the list goes on!!

I really hope to have a better year this year than last. I might be scarce for the next few weeks but I will be back when school resumes to catch up on everyone!! I have about 200 blog posts that I haven't even read yet from everyone.

Take care xx
