My family is perfectly imperfect and not a day goes by without humour, tears or tantrums. Blogging is the modern version of keeping a diary so feel free to read along while I share the good the bad and the ugly aspects of being me!

Cannon Ball Summer

Holy cow its been a while since I've blogged, if I'm being totally honest I forgot that I even had one.
Since my last update life has been pretty good. The boys are all thriving and things are calm and happy.
Summer is coming and we have been getting ready for that, one of the things that the kids love to do is jump into the swimming pool. While its fun for them, its terrifying for me... watching them try and balance on the top of the ladder as if they are in the circus. Dom has some time off work so he built a deck around part of the pool. I'm really happy with how it turned out and the kids are getting impatient waiting for the pool to warm up so they can practice their cannon balls safely.
Our house renovations are starting any day and its going to look fantastic once its all done, we are already planning our post reno open house (yes that's how eager we are!)
Over the last few weeks Dom and I have made a point of focusing on our marriage, its been a while since our family's last crisis and it was time to get back to basics... date nights, back massages, mushy text messages and simply being present for each other. For years we have been like ships passing in the night and that's not the example that we wanted to set for our kids. Nick has started dating and I want him to have a good understanding of what a quality man is and how a woman should be treated.
I have to say, its nice to write an entry that isn't all doom and gloom and full of wishes for better things.
The better things are happening.
