Why Emily is today's "king of the lab"

So yesterday at work, I got a phone call from my mum that went something like this:
"Hi Tam, I'm not feeling very well today, and I was thinking of sitting down and watching something for a bit.... you got a little package in the post.... do you mind if I watch one?!" Ahhhh! How exciting!

I knew what she was talking about of course, because we've been anxiously waiting for this particular package.... it was..... BONES SEASON THREE! Not actually out on DVD in Australia for at least another year! Luckily, we have a person on the inside (aka a resident of the United States), who also happens to be a fellow Bones lover... Enter Emily!

Emily, like the angel she is, spent several dollars (I know, because it was printed on the box) to send the Munros the next season, so that we wouldn't be left hanging after we finished watching Season 2 on DVD last month.

So THANK YOU EMILY. You are totally our KING OF THE LAB here in the Munro house at the moment :) We've watched a few episodes already, and my favourite is the Santa in a Sewer one (I think you'll know why!)

You're totally fabulous :)

Happy Birthday Reuben

Dear Reuben,

Happy Birthday sweetheart! I can't believe you're three already! I remember the day that you were born, and going to see you in the hospital for the very first time. You were very very tiny, and one of the most beautiful babies I had ever seen. It was so exciting, and it was wonderful to meet you. I got to hold you for a few minutes, and you were so light - we could all hold you with one arm! And of course, we could tell straight away what a special little boy you were going to be :)
As you got a little older, I loved coming over and playing with you while you're parents went out. Or sometimes, we all went out somewhere fun together. You're such a funny boy, and you always made us laugh!

So did you get lots of fun presents today?! And did you have a fun day with Mummy and Daddy?! I hope so :) I wish I could be there to give you a hug and celebrate your birthday with you, but I think we'll just have to settle for an email and a photograph this year :)

So happy birthday Reuben!

You're loved by people all over the world :)

Happy 2009

I'm writing from the future. Ta-da! ... (Well, if you're reading this over in America, then I'm writing from the future.... if you're reading this as a member of my family, then I'm writing from another room in the house...). But yes, that's right - on this side of the international date line, it's 2009. And I gotta tell ya - it's looking good.

I always love the first day of a new year, but today, I'm in an especially good mood. I feel like this is a year to take back some control and make some good and exciting things happen. A year when I can be more pro-active than re-active. Life offers so many wonderful experiences and opportunities, and it's just a matter of deciding where you want to go, and the kind of person you want to be. There's so many things that I want to do and be and I'm glad for another chance. Another new start.

So welcome, 2009. I've very pleased to have you here!
