Spring is here!

In another few days it will be Spring!

The cold weather is slowly moving out and we can feel the warmer weather now. At least the sun is out more from this week onwards. Not that I am happy about it since I prefer colder weather but it is good to dries up those loads of laundry!

Love to see those pretty wild flowers blooming along the roads... there are so many different species from those growing on our lawn.

A trip to Sydney

We have yet to plan a trip to Sydney as we felt that our youngest is too young to go for a long ride. We we were to drive from Melbourne to Sydney, it will take approximately 12 hours of non stop driving which is very taxing on the driver, aka my hubby. :P If we ever decide to drive up, we'll probably stop mid way and over night. However, the thought of wasting 2x2 days on the road is kind of a waste.

Therefore, we also thought of flying up if we can secure some cheap airfare. If that is the case, we might need to hire a car from a car rental company. And since we have two kids who still require car seats, we are wondering if we should bring our own or just get them from the car rental company. Previously we enquired before from one company that it charges $8 for each seat which can be rather costly if we take two. For that we thought we should wait for the younger kids to be older before we embark on this journey!

Anyway, we are keeping a few options open before deciding which is the best  choice. Hubby did thought about hiring a RV instead so the kids can have some fun travelling on one but we are not getting those that hooked up onto our car. Instead we would prefer to hire those like a bus which is big enough to accommodate our family of five. Again, we are not sure if there are such RV here but we saw numerous when we were in the US.

Looking forward to our trip to Sydney but not sure when it will materialised! >.<

Master Chef Australia 2013

Can't believe Master Chef Australia 2013 is already at its final week this week! Can't remember when it started but it felt like just recently... how time flies!

Today, Christina got booted out making the other 4 participants in the top 4. I think the show will get more exciting this week as we will know who will get the title. :P So looking forward to see the final fight!

Getting more toys for the girls

Last night my elder girl in a moment of fury hit her baby sister with a Lego block because baby sister snatched it from her. My elder girl is at the stage of attention seeking so she'll do just about anything to get our attention and it was a heartbreaking moment to see this... luckily it missed baby's eye but there was a deep cut (from the corner of the block) on baby's upper cheek.

For that we decided to keep the whole box of baby Lego blocks as they deem too dangerous for the moment. I'll have to go shop for more baby friendly toys for them to play until baby is older. Intend to get some dolls as well as some musical instruments. Hopefully I can save on electronic drum sets at musicians friend which I intend to get.

Currently on a novels chase

In the last week I was so hooked on reading novels after some friends shared some links to online books. I downloaded some of them and started to read and has been so addicted since! I used to read a lot during my free time before I got married and has not been into any book since then.

It was good to be back as I really enjoy some juicy stories to perks me me up :)
