|My small girl and I at Brisbane airport.|
As strange as it felt to be away from the boys I knew it'd be over in a heartbeat so I tried to enjoy it while I could. I must say getting back into homework, bath time and cooking dinner has been hard work!
|Cardigan socks. Obviously not in Mackay now Toto!|
I flew to Sydney where as soon as I picked up my luggage I was cold! Cold people! I hired the cutest little car that my luggage and pram barely fit into. I never drove a beep beep car, my first car was a v6 sedan. It was fun even though I didn't think I was going to make it through some of the hills in the blue mountains!
I wanted to fit in as many coffee dates and catch ups as possible, i don't make it home as often as I'd like to and now that were in the process of building a house (eek!) our travel budget has been rescheduled for house stuff, so before we'd even left Sydney I snuck over to bondi to see my gorgeous cousin and her very handsome little man Beau who's only a couple of weeks younger than Aurelia before the trek out through the blue mountains and out to my home town.
|The Blue Mountains. Beautiful but always awful weather.|
I did a quick whip round the shops then headed out to see my gorgeous friend Emily and her new house which was only at insulation stage last time I was home. Whenever I see her its always like no time has passed, sign of a good friendship I think. I stayed almost all day which would have been nearly impossible if I had everyone with me.

Saturday we headed off on a road trip within the road trip to babymacs hood which was even colder and man I loved it. We wore scarves and pants with real shoes and cardigans! cardigans! Its one of the big things I miss about home is the seasons, autumn leaves and cold crisp air. there's nothing quite like it.
We made it with just time to spare to get changed spruce up our hair and get our bums to the wedding which was gorgeous, not what I was expecting but very Tina which was perfect.
|Ready to go!|
|My gorgeous friends and their hubbies. Wedding photobooth for the win!|
|Before mum Aurelia and I went back to Orange we had a yummy breakfast and a walk around the markets.|
|Rolling green hills and moo cows, picture perfect views on our drive.|
Before we flew home I stopped off to meet another brand new cousin and catch up with his gorgeous mumma and my uncle Mike.
|Hunter and Aurelia. Only about two weeks apart.|
It's hard living so far away and missing all the important things like new babies in the family and new houses and the everyday coffee playdates but it makes going home and seeing everyone everyone extra special.
