Toy Hunt (Collection of Toys)


This weeks TOY HUNT is about collection of TOYS...

The Take Along Thomas & Friends™ durable die-cast vehicles
are a hit with little engineers--and moms! It is
portable, everything stores inside the sturdy playsets. Kids
love using their imaginations…and collecting Thomas’
ever-growing group of friends!

Yeah,,,, it is really addictive,,, we spent thousand of $$$ already and they released new collection of trains for 2009!!!!!!!
Wheww!!!! everytime you buy a train in the packet they have a little book of trains and their names and Braiden would look at it and tell me what to buy next time!!!!!And to think my hubby just gave in to Braiden's whim this afternoon,, he bought him the Salty with Sea cargo trucks....
He is just nuts about Thomas,,, I though that he had outgrown his love for Thomas when he received a Lego City for his birthday,,, but his love for Thomas was reignited when we took him to A Day with Thomas see here for the pics....

.Aside from the Take along ,, he also have some battery operated Thomas complete with tracks but I have to put it away in the box,,, It is massive,, and I dont want my house to be a Museum of Thomas....

But these Take along are collectible items...... we are almost complete with the trains ,,, some are already rare,, like Bertie the Bus which I bought on good old Ebay!!!!!!!

So if you want to see Biancas collection of Toys see it here Aussietalks









Come and join is here in TOY HUNT see the details here TOY HUNT....

Toy Hunt (Battery operated Toy/s)


TOY HUNT time again and this time its easy because its a Battery Operated Toy/s as this week's theme.
There is a story about this toy Charlie Coal the grill which is a good toy with batteries  and it talks as you play a pretend cooking....
Last month ,we were invited to a birthday party,, so I went in my magic garage and took this toy out....


Well,, magic garage as I call it,, because I keep some toys in there , whenever there is a TOY sale I buy toys that are really cheap and keep them knowing that its gonna be of good use, we are always getting invited to birthday parties  so I dont have to worry about buying gifts..

So back to the story.... I took out the Charlie Coal out and was about to wrap it up,,, but my kids did not stop bugging me that they wanted the toy!!!!!  They are so excited and they said to keep it for them,,,  oh well,,,,,, so I went inside the magic garage and took the Leap Frog Word Launch instead,,, since the kids already have the same toy like this ,, I juts thought that the Charlie the coal is appropriate because the bday celebrant is turning 3 ,, and the Leap Frog is for ages 4 and up,,, well anyway,, it turned out the the celebrant likes the Leap Frog and my kids are enjoying the Charlie the Coal!!!





So its your turn to show your TOY.... Join us and find the details here on how to join  TOY HUNT


Enjoy and to all the Mommy participants  have a HAPPY MOTHERS DAY

Weekend at Darling harbour



This weekend we took the kids at Darling Harbour , we went to see the exhbit for Home and Renovation,, then took the kids to watch UNDER the Sea 3D at IMAX Movie

I was still feeling a bit sick,,,, 2 days ago my daughter Bianca was sick , but last Saturday she was feeling well.... 
At the IMAX,, I juts had a terrible headache and I juts cant watch the movie anymore since it is a 3D and I have to wear 3 D glasses,, the more Im having a headcahe... so I just went to sleep ,, while hubby and the kids watched the movie....

Since its KIDs time,,,, we took them to the Australian National Maritime Museum ...  the afterward we went to take them to see the replica of the Endevour  ,, kids love em,,, they say it's a Pirate ship!!!! 
Actually it is a replica of HMS Endeavour ; a 10-gun Royal Navy bark commanded by Lieutenant James Cook on his first voyage of discovery, to Australia and New Zealand in 1769-71.





The Endeavour is recreated

The HM Bark Endeavour was recreated to exacting standards, with building begun in 1988 in Fremantle, Western Australia. Because of financial difficulties, a charitable trust, HM Bark Endeavour Foundation, was set up in 1991 to continue the work on the new Endeavour.

The completed replica was launched on December 9, 1993 and commissioned on April 16, 1994. She set sail for Sydney in October of that year, visiting Albany, Adelaide, Hobart, Melbourne and other ports along the way.

The Endeavour sails the world

On arrival in Sydney the Endeavour was displayed at the Australian National Maritime Museum in Darling Harbour. Since then, the Endeavour has sailed in both Australia and New Zealand and embarked on a world voyage, through South Africa, on to England, the east and west coasts of North America before returning to New Zealand and Australia. She was in port in Sydney during the Sydney 2000 Olympic Games.

The Endeavour then set out on other international voyages and in April 2005 returned to Sydney from Cook's hometown, Whitby, in England.

The non-profit HM Bark Endeavour Foundation has transferred ownership of the ship to the Australian Government.

When in Sydney, the Endeavour is docked at the Australian National Maritime Museum in Darling Harbour and is open to the public between 10am and 5pm daily.

Organizing my Pantry


Organizing Blog
Whoaa... Its been awhile since I joined the Monthly Organizing Round up ,, but Im back and this month is organizing a Closet or Cupboard..

So this is my Pantry that really needs a revamp... 
As you can see I have some sort of oragnizing going on ,, but it is not working for us....and just plain messy...

Hey I blame it on my teenage daughter who  gets stuff and just leave it anywhere,,,,
As you can see I;ve got my cereal  and breakfast stuff up there ...
and my  condiments scattered...
and how about the plastic bags....!!!! way too full!!!!





















So I've been looking around for some tips and tricks ... and got heaps of stuff from Organizing junkie ...

Then I bought these stuff...














After clearing them all up ,, took them out of the cupboard and checking which are still edible and taking some stuff out of bulky packets ...
The overloaded plastic bag were minimised.. I placed them in a bin for Plastic bag in my local grocery  for recycling....
I kept a few to be use as bin liner....
I used the basket for my Softdrinks and the white basket to put my garlic and onion down the bottom



















I love these Decor containers with tags 






































I also used this container to put snacks and muesli bar easy to reach for kids ..and I love this tip for my spices that I labeled






























And these Lazy Susan!!! Love em!!!!!! I just have to turn it and I can easily access whatever I need!!! Clever eh......

Go and visit Laura's Organizing junkie to peek for some more tips!!!!
