Straight of limb, true of eyes, steady and aglow.
They were staunch to the end against odds uncounted,
They fell with their faces to the foe.
They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old:
Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn.
At the going down of the sun and in the morning,
We will remember them.
fighting for what everyone can have tomorrow, I thank you.
To my grandparents and great grandparents who served with honor,
I am indebted

Now two years years later, I cannot believe that I love you more today.
Your cheeky smile, your impish ways, even your foot stomping screaming banshee tantrums.
I love everything about you.

I can smell that coffee just looking at the photo.
Most people are coffee connesieurs. Me, I'll take an instant coffee any day. Unless a Maccas vanilla skinny latte is on the cards. I think I'd almost kill for one of them.
So when John suggested hotfooting it to the other end of the Plaza for Maccas, I wasn't saying no.
So thanks for the good coffee and good company.
Then I got to experience more great company but this time with good food when Linsday rocked up with a box full of cupcakes.

Yes apart from cleaning floors, a vacuum is great for cleaning children that decide that fried rice is much better stored in the top of your shirred dress or your hair as opposed to the bowl it's served in.

I've come to clean ze pool
LMAO This is the text message with attached picture I recieved while at work tonight. I dared him to shave it into a moustache but I never thought he would. Of course it was gone by the time I got home.

Congratulations Nic & Ant and I cannot thank you enough for letting me share this day with you.
"As you sit side by side through this roller coaster of life remember to scream from the peaks, hold hands through the dips, laugh through the loop-the-loops and enjoy every twist and turn for the ride is better because you share it together, forever.”

We got to see a live show with Terri, Bindi, Robert and some keepers. The kids were excited as we weren't sure if they would actually be there.
The show wasn't really that informative. Really the two main things I learnt were:
1. Bindi Irwin cannot sing, and
2. When a crocodile keeper swears whilst almost getting bitten, it's probably not part of the show.
Goodies fan like me it reminded me of Knutters Knoll.

After the refueling we headed out to Coles to fill our empty kitchens. BAD MOVE. Coles was closed on Good Friday and would again be closed on Easter Sunday. It was bedlam. The way that people were stocking up you would think the world was going to end. So two shopping trolleys and five children was not our idea of fun. If I heard "Can I have this?" one more time, I think my head was going to explode. So between the two families we managed to run through almost $500 - and that wasn't including the Easter Eggs and alcohol that John and I came back later to grab.
Brian cooked us all a typical Aussie lunch of snags on the barbie, then while I put Imogen to bed, everyone else headed off to the beach. The kids had a ball and only stopped long enough to pose for a few photos before they were running off again.
Imogen was still sleeping when they got back, so John took over babysitting duties while I headed down to the pool with everyone else. The grounds downstairs are gorgeous and it's set up well enough that the kids can run around without getting into everything.
After relaxing so much around the apartments we decided to head out and have a look around Surfers - apparently so did everyone else on the Gold Coast. After driving around for ages looking for a carpark in the Cavill Avenue area, we gave in and headed to The Oasis and Broadbeach Mall instead. The kids thought it was great. There was a playground and a merry-go-round in the mall. Again getting them to stand still was an effort - but here's one shot:
