My new job

I am so excited to share some news with you...
I started a new job this week as a New Homes Sales Consultant with a company called

My office is in this gorgeous display home, pop by the website & check it out. Its called the
 Mitchell 6 & its simply stunning!

I'm working in a full time position, Monday to Friday & I have just completed my first week.
I really enjoyed it & have learnt so much that by Friday I thought my head might explode & there is still so so much more to know. Its such a great feeling to be challenging myself in this way again. The people I work for & with are all really lovely which makes it so easy to go there each day
So if you don't hear from me much, I haven't forgotten you or anything & I am still keen to blog, I will just be a little time poor when it comes to my personal interests.
The dream guy has been doing a fabulous job at being Mr mum & the school daddy. I leave home pretty early of a morning so my little ones are still sleeping & he has had to learn to do a ponytail on dream child no4 who has hair to her waist. On the first day he rang the neighbor & got her to do it, but after a couple of lessons, he has improved a little each day, we might make a hairdresser out of him yet, he he he.
 I have a little chuckle when the kids tell me about some of the hi cups that occur, but I give him a 10/10 for effort!!!
Do you have a Mr mum getting the kids to school each day?
 I would love to hear your funny stories!!

Hens Day fun & games

My gorgeous little sister is getting married in 2 weeks time so last weekend we celebrated with the traditional hens day.

This is the beautiful bride herself
The dress code for the day was little black dress & big wig...
I might have taken it a bit far, as you will soon see...
Wigs don't come much "bigger" than that, he he he!!!
The mother daughter shot!!!

The bride with our mum(on the left) & her adopted mum with the star glasses!!!

The bride with her AWESOME bridesmaids.
these girls are by far the best bridesmaids EVER!!
They put on a great hens day, we had a high tea in the afternoon, then popped on a bus called "The Happy Cabby" it was a karaoke tour to 3 mystery restaurants for entree, main & dessert. It was great fun, the food was fantastic &  everyone got in on the karaoke!!!

We also had a fun time posing with photo props at the high tea.
Any way the wedding will be on a beach in 2 weeks so the attire will be completely different & the hair will be a little tamer.
I am the hairdresser on the day & I'm also working on the table decorations & helping style the reception, I can't wait.
I will be posting some pictures of the wedding for sure, a bit of a before & after.
Have a fabulous week everyone, I have so much to tell you at the moment & no time to blog, but I am trying to catch up.
