"Jenna" cuddles

Today little Thomas turns a week old....
I took his big sisters (Jessica & Zoe) out today for a Subway lunch then to the hairdressers for a "pretty up". We had a great "girlie" afternoon. Of course when I took them home I had to have a cuddle of my 2 litle boys..18 month old Sheymus and Thomas.

Rae "tagged" me

Yep, Rae the super model "tagged' me and I have to post 5 wierd things/habits about me that people don't know about me! mmmmmmmm no where do I start??

Wierdness/Habit #1 I HATE, LOATHE snakes and even when one slithers across the road in front of the car I lift my feet up off the pedals and scream and have to stop myself from looking where I am going!! I can't look at them on tv or in books....I shudder to think of them!

Weirdness/Habit #2 I am claustrophobic....I don't like being closed up in confined spaces

Weirdness/Habit #3 Geeeeeeeee this is getting hardish!! Does biting my fingernails come into this...mmmm yea its a habit, a bad one too.

Weirdness/Habit #4 I very very rarely wear dresses. I like trousers, jeans and pants. Am a bit of a "tomboy" and like to race speedway cars, climb trees and don't mind getting dirty!!

Weirdness/Habit #5 I am allergic to pine trees in bloom..the flowers and sap give me a hive like rash.

There you are Rae...being "tagged" certainly got me thinking....
Good luck tomorrow on your ww super modeling, smileeeeee and have fun, you and Donna both deserve it.

Blogger still won't let me post pics, darn! I wanted to show off my newest little grandie. oooooooppppsssss been celebrating, weigh in tomorrow night.......eeeeeeekkkkk demon scales!!!!

Tornado Update

Was going to post a few pics but "blogger" won't do it for some reason! But ohhh well when it gets sorted out I will.

The tornado that went through this estate I live in was devastating and very destructive leaving many people homeless, some houses were completely demolished and others damaged, some more will have to be demolished, others can be repaired. They are saying over $10 million of damages. The premier has been and declared the area a natural disaster zone.
Over the past week a lot of time has been donated by people and businesses and a massive clean up has been going on. It has been marvellous the way people have come together and supported the community.
It is going to take a long time though before insurances etc can be sorted out and the rebuilding process can begin.
Today I have been down the local bush brigade helping with the morning teas and lunches for all the volunteers. All the food has been donated by businesses and cakes etc have been donated by families like mine who were not suffering damage. Being Sunday I didn't think there would be too many but there were over 30 of all ages. Marvellous the way this community has pulled together to help each other, isn't it?

The tornado was very frightening and I think everytime we have a storm I will be scared of a reoccurrence...I hope not as it is a noise I NEVER want to hear again!!!
I want to THANK all those people who were concerned about me and sms'ed, rang or emailed wondering how I was. All I can say is mwahhhhhhh THANK YOU

Just letting you ...

All know I am fine. A shocking disaster here with a tornadeo going through the area I live in at 1.10am this morning. The noise was so loud and frightening, and the thunder, lightning and hailstones made it deafening!! It past our house about a 100 meters or so away leaving debris everywhere BUT so many other houses were totally destroyed or severely damaged. Huge trees were just twisted down a foot from the ground or totally stripped bare...its terrible to see. Over 25 houses have been destroyed and over 30 damaged...those poor families and a lot of them live just a few hundred meters from me.

Went to weigh in tonite....lost 600g..

I went to a birthday party last night and YES I resisted TEMPTATION again. There was a lovely big black forest birthday cake, and my very favourite pavalova, and fruit cheesecake. And I had NONE! No not even a taste.
The dinner was a pig on the spit, which I didn't taste either. I would not have been able to resist the crackling. So yes, I am proud of me and I hope those demon scales will be nice to me tomorrow night and thank me for resisting those yummies!
