Halloween 2016

So yesterday was election day in the US. I want to rant and moan and cry but I won't say anything on here. Instead I'll just go straight into happy things that October was full of. 

                     Things like Little Dude, Miss P and The Hurricane playing Ninja Turtles.....





Things like the same people (yes, dogs are people too), being themselves and getting into mischief...






Things like setting up for Halloween, weekend playroom sleepovers with the puppy, playing with the dogs and taking selfies...







Things like playing with Lego, riding bikes and hugging best friends...





Things like winning the Recreate Sculpture competition at Little Dude's school, like The Social One getting her drivers' licence, like The Hurricane thinking she is part Mountain Goat, like Little Dude going on school camp and Miss P missing him so much! Things like stunning almost summer days, like becoming brand ambassadors for a dog treat company, like going to work and having the puppy miss you, like Miss Penelope drawing the coolest jack-o-lanterns, ghosts and zombies...


















Things like the cutest Star Wars halloween costumes, and light saber/pistol fights between the good and bad guys....










Like getting a new car, family game nights and more selfies...









Like walkies...






Like pumpkin carving, listening to new music, like getting the most gorgeous vintage sideboard from your husband at the most bargain basement price ...








Like muck up day for the high school leavers...


Like Rex getting his summer haircut and looking decidedly odd..


And of course, happy things like our Halloween party.....























There are heaps more photos of the house over at bohemianinkdesign.com if you want to have a look. 

So October was good, with just a couple of negatives. The good: Our landlords are reducing our rent and installing air conditioning for us shortly as the rental market has dropped quite a lot lately. The bad:  My back is, well, it's totally buggered. I have another wrecked disc and it looks like my hernia has come back so my leg is on the way out again. I am hobbling around yet again and so we were looking to move to a cheaper place. But our landlords love us and really wanted to keep us as tenants. So they reduced our rent considerably and we won't have to swelter through another summer thank goodness!! 

What's next? Graduation ceremony for the Social One and The Boyfriend, The Eldest One is currently looking for a different house, something closer to work and is being very grown up. Miss Em is working, finished her exams and is more and more independent. Little Dude has his Year 6 graduation (end of Primary School) and graduation lunch and Miss Penelope Wonderwoman is learning, trying, to control her temper and navigate the world of play and fun and being social. 

The Awesome One is busy working and working and taking on so much responsibility, and I am going to focus on doing what I can and figure out how to get a total body replacement in the meantime.
