A diary of our family's house building project in the Blue Mountains, NSW, Australia. Also my ponderings on family life, living with Asperger's Syndrome, running an ebay business & a place to share my photography.

new look

Firstly, thanks everyone for all your lovely comments lately.
It's lovely to hear from people & to know that there are people out there who care. It's a lonely life we are living at the moment so it really makes a difference when people take the time to send us a message.

OK, so I've been totally sick of the way my blog looks for months now. So I decided to add a little oomph. Not too much, being a non-glitzy person, but something to just brighten things up a bit. Add some colour, change the banner to something big & impressive maybe.
So I find a free easy to install background & now my text doesn't fit in right. So do I go back to being boring, or spend more valuable time trying to figure out how to fix it or.... how about I just ask for help?!
Can anyone reading tell me what to do? i'd appreciate it ( :
I'm so sick of boring.

We are getting better. Finn was good today. Very tired though.
Ivy slept in until 8am!!!!! (She almost never sleeps beyond 6). She must be sick.
I'm feeling run down & bored. I so sick of working. I've been in this place before but not for a while. I want to take photos of something other than clothing. I want to clean up my impossibly messy house. I want to spend a whole day doing nothing but play with my kids without feeling stressed out about what I should be doing. Actually even half a day would be nice. I want a holiday. I want to move house. I want a new life that's different to this one. The tunnel seems so long this week, I seem to have lost sight of the light at the other end.
 The kids on the other hand, never seem to have trouble with that, even when they're sick!

Hi Toni,
The house looks great!! Sorry to read you aren't well, it makes everything just so much harder doesn't it? I really admire your strength and determination to do the best for your family, I can't imagine how difficult it is. Hang in there. Love to you and Kim and the kids. Larissa

Easiest way to get a new look on your blog is to get a new template and/or change the Settings. Log in at Blogger.com and just play around - you can easily add polls, slideshows, etc.

You can go much further customizing things, but I suspect you wouldn't want to spend TOO much time on it.

BTW we are still trying to organize our trip to Sydney, and it's STILL raining up here!!!!

Hi Toni, glad to see you are all on the mend - although we are all coming down with various types of colds and coughs - i love winter but not the sickness part. The kids look really happy - i especially like the one of Finn - he looks like such a grown up little man now. Take care

Its amazing, I have envied you and your beautiful family for so long, I admire your strength and compassion and relationship with Kim and your simplistic approach to life while focusing on the important issues. I now see you as a normal human being, keep up the fantastic effort you both put into your family and to each other! There is a light at the end of the tunnel and you move..into your beautiful new home.. and you can take photos (that we all love to look at) of your beautiful surroundings and of course your precious family.. chin up, winter will be over and spring will be here and you will feel so much better!!!!!
