a week old

is our house now. yeah sorry got a little busy to carry on the countdown. I have wanted to post(I even thought about what to say while laying in bed at night) but well my computer was not put up until now, of course Justin had his up and running but not mine, he only just got around to it tonight and as it was I had to come and check up on him as he was busy playing on his again!!!
So I hope you all had a fantastic Christmas, ours was okay, Santa was very nice to the kids. Alexander got a bike with gears(which is what he asked for)and Laura got Buzz the PlayStation game. we even managed to get a tree up as well even if it was a little crooked. I love it how excited and happy the kids are the night before Christmas its just so darn cute. we didn't think we were going to get the tree up so the kids were busy drawing pictures of Christmas trees to put out beside the Santa's drink and the reindeer's carrots! Alexander cut some up for them and rudoplh got the longest one.
Boxing Day was pretty quite the kids went with my Mum and Dad to my cousins and we went shopping and spent more money for things for the house, got a new microwave, some more towels, Laura a new duvet for her new bed (still needs a cover but I couldn't pick one without her there) a new toaster plus a few little bits and pieces. It is never ending, you would think we had everything since we had a house before but some stuff just needs to be new for the nice new house, like a new duvet cover for our bed which i finally got on our bed today and oh it looks 10 times better. Probably helps that I finally unpacked my clothes and tidy ed our room. I will upload photos tomorrow. Till then take care. Fiona

One Week!!!!!

to go until our house is finished and handed over to us. It is all going well I think, have been to busy to notice and well I had a little melt down over it all in the middle of the week, dam thing eats money. Nothing to worry about according to Justin, I don't think it helped that I heard him telling someone else about it over the phone, that really annoys me, appearntly all just happened as I walked in the door.
Off to Auckland for the Justin's work dinner, have been rushing around this morning helping Mum with her housecleaning, getting stuff that Laura needs for her Dance concert on Sunday and getting ready to go.My hair cut has grown abit but still doesn't really do alot, so annoying. Was about to sit down and do my nails but can't find a nail file so thought I'd give you all an update instead.

days to go and we are nowhere near organised to move. In fact its all abit of shambles really, I just don't have any time or enthusiam for it at the moment, not to mention I haven't done any Christmas shopping, well I did go yesterday with Grandma but didn't buy anything. Justin and I are up to Auckland on Friday for the night for his work party, Laura has her dance concert on Sunday and practices all next week (and last) so its been all go. Thursday was a long day for me as I was on my feet from 3:30am to 10:30pm as I had both my jobs to go to and I helped Mum do her house cleaning jobs since she has a broken arm and is abit slower. Justin was away at the beginning of the week to. The house is appearntly looking good, Justin's Mum had a look thru on her way in yesterday.
ok that's all I have time for. Hope everyone esle is having a better day.

days to go until our house is ready!!!! We got to go thru on Friday as it has been locked up since they put the garage door on. The kitchen which was suppose to be going in on Monday was finally being put in when we were there and the thing looked good, so good to see it all coming together. The handles on the cupboard doors that i picked all by myself looked good too! Justin's Mum was there of course and she was really excited, my Mum happened to be there to but she didn't keep asking if I was excited! I think everyone is now just at the point where we just want to be in. It is pretty much all go from here on in, the tiler was suppose to be there this week. We are still trying to finalize the driveway and patio area, which is the week after I think. I tell you its all go.
In other news:
* well my team leader(manager) told us this morning that her last day at our store will be on Sunday. We were all pretty shocked and a few of us upset, it's not normally so fast, she is moving to the Ashburton store.
* Laura is growing up, she went to her friends on Saturday night and then on Sunday they caught the bus to the mall and by the sounds of it spent most of the afternoon shopping(or looking as Laura didn't buy anything)she didn't get home till Sunday evening! Oh so cute and scary at the same time.
* Christmas isn't that far away and I haven't done anything Christmassy, except singing along with the carols at work! We had the whole Christmas tree discussion for our new house. We have always had a real one but Justin said it would be to messy on our new carpet! This is from the one who always wanted a real one. then there was what colour fake one would we buy, personally I'm not even sure if we will have time for any sort of tree.
* and I can't remember what else I was going to say so that's all folks
