Our first week was very social and busy, lots of time spent at beaches and eating and drinking with friends old and new. Amazingly, despite the fact that we've only been here 2 and 1/2 years, some of our very good friends from our first antenatal group are actually just down the road in Sydney! I always think how great living in a commune would be when we meet up in families - the kids have a ball, the adults get to catch up while the kids are occupied, the kids mix with other adults who care about them and we have fun! I know it's never that idyllic in real life.
That was a lovely warm day at Lemon Tree Passage, other days were rather chillier!
Bit of beach hooky!

How's that for a heap of kids? 13 years ago we started with 2 bumps!
Week 2 was rather quieter, although we did have Miss M's birthday. We spent an afternoon at Speers Point Park, played with Lego, did some crochet, a bit of tennis, a lot of football with Dad (that's how I got to do so much crochet!), and the usual housey-type stuff. When we're out, they're fine and allegedly they behave beautifully for other people. Amazingly we grown-ups have been out 2 weekends in a row to have drinks/dinner at friends houses and both baby-sitters said they were gorgeous. Clearly we all need to swap kids more often!
Reading in bed to keep warm!
I hope you have all survived/are surviving your hols!
