Looks like you're in the jungle there Niamh - i'm sooooooooooo jealous!!! Not too sure about the lizard thing, i dread to think what my cats would make of it

Just keep talking and sharing your feelings......................he's probably worried about providing for you and the kids, which he is doing, maybe the uncertainty of the last few months is catching up with him?

I agree with Mary, you have had so much stress and now you have a bit more - with the move and he has started a new job and you have a new baby... blinkin heck, you are off the stress scale. Maybe he doesn't want to burden you with something else and is keeping it to himself?

Loving the lizard (I like them and geckos) but not the anty things. EWWWWW!! Is your new house a bit less rainforesty??

Cute Lizard! I love the fact you're so close to the rainforest. Looks lovely!

Good luck on the Move NEXT Week!

He's probably stressed about the new job, etc. It's been a rough few months on you guys!

Hey, Niamh. Did you read my public plea to you? I asked that, since your knees are no longer being used for Nic's requests, you start working on my request.....that the MEDS clear and we get a CO!!

Thanks!

oh picture as promised cant wait to here what you make of this

shoping
A few things i noticed while here

wollies best time to buy nice bread is about half 5 before they close you get great deals on rolls and slice pans from thier bakery oh and donouts

milk and bread is cheaper at the fruit and veg worlds

for any one who likes cheese you have to try the Australian gold
they are great with those tuk crackers and pickled onions and salami yum great for making a cheese platter for the BBQ

buy bulk its gas but some times the bigger container works out cheaper the chemists some times have great deals on toilet roll and washing powder but kmart is good for fabric conditioner and washing powder get them in bigger containers and it works out cheaper lol

oh when using mossie repellent dont spill on furniture and when you spray it on your self get every were i missed my heel and i had 7 bites took 2 daysfor the itching to stopdrove me mad

ok going to stop you might find that useful or think im mad

I must say Niamh, it's not my cup of tea. I will be living in a city, thank you very much!! I don't like forests in this country.

Glad to hear you will still be praying. Hope the baby doesn't mind lying on the floor while you do this?

I'm sure once you're in your own house where you can get out and about, you will be so much better. Then you have to hatch a plan. The economy in Eire and the UK is really bad Niamh. You don't have to stay there forever, but I reckon if you can stick a couple of years and save up, you'll be fine to come back. So long as you have an end in sight you'll keep going. You never know, you might have changed your mind when the time comes.

I'm sitting here deciding whether to to have a 20 foot or 40 foot container. It sort of affects everything I have to do and I am at a bit of a loss really... Some people have said take everything you can and others have said start from scrtch. if we take a 20 foot, it would only contain our bed and boxes of personal effects / toys. (Yes we have that much stuff and yes I have decluttered and no I won't get rid of any more...) If we take a 40 foot it wouldn't be full but we could take our lovely sofas, some more furniture, all the crap like buckets and more kitchen stuff etc.. maybe buy some new things....

OMG Niamh - cross posted with your last post. That house is a shocker!!! It truely is awful. No wonder you are home sick. So pleased you are out of there soon. OMG the thought of your little baby being brought home there. My cousins live in Aus and their houses are beautiful - they aren't rich just normal people. That is just terrible....
