September Update

                                         WELCOME TO THE FAMILY

I would like to welcome to the family Hayley Jean born on the 9th September at 7.14am weighing 9.5 pounds and Denni Jean born on the 15th September at 9.46pm weighing 6.5pounds.

The arrival of Denni marks the third birth in this family this year the first being back in February with the arrival of Daemon Joseph to Kelli & Jono.

                                       COMING IN FEBRUARY

In February we will be welcoming yet another baby when my eldest daughter Kathy-Lee gives birth to her second child.

                                    TIRED WITH NO ANSWERS YET

I am experiencing a lot of tiredness with as yet no answers, yes I know it is caused by my low iron but I have no answer as to why I am so low in iron or how to fix it since I have tried iron tablets and iron injections and have not been told that I am low in B12 or anything like that. However I see a blood specialist on the 27th of this month and maybe then I will get some answers. The thing that gets to me is the need for a nap of an afternoon which only started when I was sick as all hell back in August before that I was fine I would get really tired by the end of the day but didn't feel like I needed a nap during the day and if I didn't have a nap I didn't find myself in bed at some silly hour like I do between 6 & 7pm.

                          GETTING READY FOR SCHOOL

Little Leo has been getting ready for big school next year by attending something called “school starters” a program ran by Kaleidoscope which he attended for 8 weeks recently and only got sent home Although for the first few weeks Jessica was with him in the room as he wouldn't stay in the room without her, the children were to be in one room and the parents had to be in the next room watching through a window we could see the kids but they couldn't see us.

A one-way mirror, also known as a two-way mirror, one-way glass, or two-way glass is a mirror that is partially reflective and partially transparent. When one side of the mirror is brightly lit and the other is dark, it allows viewing from the darkened side but not vice versa.

Anyway on his 5th week there he was good and stayed in the room and was a well behaved child the following week was the week they sent him home as he was too destructive and the last 2 weeks he was a good boy and stayed in the room and worked well with the other kids there was only 4 children in the group although 1 of the little girls only turned up for a few weeks. I would have liked to seen the group go a bit longer as Leo only started getting use to the group when it ended.

Jessica has enrolled Leo in Swansea Public School which is only 2 blocks for her home and she is so nervous about sending him to school next year.

                                                       MY BLAIN

My Blain has had a rough year at school, he had to change schools he now goes to Shortland Public and he hasn't had the best year and had to change classes to see if that would help but it hasn't. He is living with his dad for Monday to Friday and goes to his mums on the weekend but he is always saying he wants to live with his mum during the week and see his dad on the weekends and I do not know why he can't go back to living with his mum but he hasn't and that is that.

I haven't seen as much of him this year and I have to say I often miss him I would love it if Natasha would come to Sunday lunch more so I could see him but she always has some excuse for not turning up.


My darling granddaughter is doing so well with her swimming she loves swimming and is still going once a week and has made a lot of progress.

She is also in day care two days a week now and loves it as well she goes to the same day care that Leo attends and loves seeing Leo.

She also has started telling people that mummy has a baby in her belly and that it is a little girl baby although she has once said that it was a boy baby but most of the time she thinks it is a girl baby.

                                        BEING THE BOSS AGAIN

Yes Kathy-Lee is the boss again at work while John (her boss) has gone on a cruise which means she is working 6 days a week and this is making her exhausted to the point of tears some days and there is nothing I can really do about it. I listen when she calls me in tears but that is all I can do. I know she really would like to be able to quit her job and just stay home and look after Sydney-May but I do not thing that is an option at this time for a number of reason including the fact that I don't think Michael is really that keen on the idea but that is between Kathy and Michael and has nothing to do with me.
