It is with reluctance that I say that there is definitely a little bit of the Macdonald girl in my boy...after all he is a boy and it just doesn't seem right somehow. But how can I not say it when he comes out dressed up like a member of the Village People and then proceeds to pose like this...yes, there is a little bit of Macdonald girl in this little man...even if it is not a little bit of this Macdonald girl! (That is a question I ponder almost daily...why do my children channel my sisters?...must be so I don't miss them so much...it doesn't ache quite so much when Connor pulls a funny face and I see Linny or Kenzi does a funny naked dance and I see KT, they both crack each other up and laugh and laugh and I see Strawberry girl!)

Finally I steal a computer and here we go people, hold on this is 3 months in 3hours!
(To my darling family, you will appreciate that I chose this font (whiwh wont work on blogger!) as it reminds me of my handwriting- Perfect! I really should have been a doctor with the beautiful scrawl of mine!)
TWO: HELLO BONNY DUNDEE, how I love thee!
From Ireland to the Land of the Scots!
So after 10months of nursing in Ireland I decided there was more to life and life COULD be a whole lot better…. I didn’t even make 12months what a yellow bellied chicken!!
I loved this place; light house a Christian homless centre giving out food, clothes, smiles, laughter and love... The lads (well maybe papas!!) Warriors of Goodness, Godly-ness & fun!
Mum Monica at the light hose what a kindered spirit!
Solomon a total fave from Romania reminded me of dad!
Another of my faves, she has a beautiful sad story which I will tell you one day.
My other special place in Dublin Mrs Quinns Charity shop on Crumlin Road. Jean the lady in black is a hard talking but golden hearted angel who I scabbed many meals, treasures & adventures & laughs from!! Thanks a million!
Best filler job: Babara & Wolly
I love the sun burnt design on this door
the hinge is long gone.
Here staying at my Scottish families house (I LOVE more than easyjet the SINGERS of BONNY DUNDEE!!)
I stressed, waited, stressed, received, stressed, unpacked, stressed, waited, stressed, re-packed, and a little more stressing until all my boxes arrived from Dublin Ireland and were packed and headed to London to jump a boat to my home via places I have never seen or heard of and hopefully arriving in Sydney port sometime before my 40th Birthday!! I had an ‘ace time’ saying good bye to all my wonderful friends in Dundee… I was keen to run off from there after studying but a little piece of my heart still resided there and always will, somewhere below The Law and maybe near my favourite stairs, you know the ones Hamish ;-)

Good things can come out of sick computers. I'm using Kati's old laptop, the one that used to be my laptop before Kati, because our computer is still at the Computer Doctor. Yesterday it had fallen asleep and the screensaver was scrolling pictures across the screen. Pictures of my hens night came up, I had no idea that they were on this computer so I delved in and sat and had a good laugh. What a doozy of a night! Great fun, great friends, great pictures. Thanks sisters of mine, you sure know how to throw a bash.
And onto other things, no posts from me about my adventures last week cause I don't want to download this pics onto this computer and then have to do it on the Mac when it gets home. And the other reason for a lack of posts, I've been in bed surrounded by tissues. I caught a bug thing in England and have spent the last few days in bed with a sore throat, a pounding head, runny nose etc. Just the way to end a holiday. It's clearing up now, I think I was just going down in sympathy with all the nieces and nephew. Get well everyone!

And I start to get weak
Cause no one knows
Me underneath these clothes
But I can fly
We can fly, Oooohh
Cause I am a Superwoman
Yes I am
Yes she is
Even when I'm a mess
I still put on a vest
With an S on my chest
I'm a Superwoman!
So every time you hold me
Hold me like this is the last time
Every time you kiss me
Kiss me like you'll never see me again
Every time you touch me
Touch me like this is the last time
Promise that you'll love me
Love me like you'll never see me again
Poor Pobj is getting lots of hugs and kisses before he goes away!!!!

Starting from our crazy weekend last weekend, then Kenzi got tonsillitis. Really really sick chicken....no sleep sick. I had some big food orders this week as well, so I juggled that while I nursed Kenzi. Kenzi was on the mend on Thursday and then Connor woke up with the same symptoms on Friday morning. He is even sicker than Kenz. Again no sleep. Pobj has to have a proposal done for work before he flies out on Friday, so he hasn't been home before 7pm. So, here is little old me single mumming it up (Amazing if you are one, amazing) trying to spend quality time with my husband who I won't see for 11 days (Longest time apart for 9 years) and nurse my babies back to health. So, that is a long winded way of saying I will be off air for a time until everything settles and life is a little calmer.
Meanwhile I wonder where all my sisters are to help me laugh my way through this icky, yukky period of life? Kisses until I return full of energy and lots of school holiday fun, wheels all glued and welded back on!

He had a new toothbrush and toothpaste on his plate and he got to wear a crown (which this time was made of paper, but I will sew one up for future toothy celebrations!)
There was also a little note in the package from Pobj and I about how cool it is that he is growing up and how proud we are of him. He totally loved it and even let me take photo's. So this is what we will do for my little man...no fairies but lots of fun!
I love the post. I love recieving snail mail and I love that my kids love it to. Today we got a very big surprise and found a rather large letter in our mail box. It had activities and letters and photo's in it. What a nice surprise. Thank you Linny and Co. I loved it. The kids loved it. Totally worth the effort that I know it takes!
