My baby is back...

No, Elizabeth and Phillip didn't go anywhere, my baby is my computer. After almost 3 months, too many phone calls, one cock up after another, I finally have my computer back. Sadly it is minus it's harddrive. Just about every single thing I have done for the last 2 years has gone. It has run away, never to return. There is one final, last-ditch chance of getting something off it. It relys on them being able to get their hands on an identical model harddrive and transferring parts between them to *hopefully* get something working. Learn from my story - BACK EVERYTHING UP!

My Year So Far In Pictures:
New Year's Eve: It wasn't us who set off the fireworks in their backyard - Honest!
And they did the traditional thing of covering poor Judith's front yard with the leftover streamers from the party poppers...

First week in January: Tan and her family come for a visit. Even though we threw furniture at them (don't ask - it was a long and slightly scary story), they seemed to enjoy themselves! We had heaps of fun having the over for a visit too!

Most of January: We spend out lives out the front on the driveway... Playing with bubbles, drawing with chalk and doing water painting, and playing with the neighbour's kids. Lilli particularly loves playing with Ava. She calls her her best friend!
Oh, and I MADE Elizabeth this purple dress! Very proud of myself!
11th January: Finally took the Christmas decorations down. The tree came down very early, but all the other stuff just stayed up for a while...

15th January: Photo shoot with Bellie. Sarah just wanted to go somewhere and I stripped her child off while they were here and took some photos...

23rd January: Charlie finally decided to make an entrance after keeping everyone in suspence for most of January! Poor Cath had to have a ceasarean because he was taking his sweet time with it!

26th January (Australia Day): I cleaned the bathroom which caused bubbles to come up through the floor in the bathroom. The kids LOVED it!We had a yummy BBQ for lunch (wow - WAY too much food! I learnt from my mum to seriously over-cater...) and spent the day out the front playing with bubbles with Ava. TWO bubble machines certainly make a whole lot of bubbles! Elizabeth certainly looks patriotic enough, shame about the lack of enthusiasm...

And that's pretty much January 2010 for the Abel family in a nutshell. Hope your year is going well!

And on this very sad and reflective day, the anniversary of the horrible Victorian fires this year, I hope we can all spend a little time today looking back and remembering...

Wahoo Kylie! I'm glad your computer is back at long last!! Nice to see your year in pictures so far. I hope you DO get loads of things back from your hard drive, and yes I did a backup myself right after you suggested it earlier.

Enjoy having your 'puter back!!
