"What a wonderful world!!!!!" adelaidean's Profile

My life!!

I may be biased, but I think I am a very lucky person. I am married to Bob, who is the most fantastic man you could ever meet. I have three great kids. Laura is 23 and is going to be the next hairdresser to the stars!!! Emma is 20 and she is also going to be a fantastic hairdresser. She is nearly finished her apprenticeship and has grown into a gorgeous girl. Two hairdressers in the one family!!!Great stuff... Jake is 17and is a cabinetmaker. He is going to be part of the next Blink 182!!!Luckily we dont have any close neighbours, as he plays the drums..I think my family is fantastic...I love my life...and I really hope you enjoy my pages!!!!!

Our little home.

We bought our home about seven years ago. Our friends and family thought we were crazy. It was a little rundown to say the least!!!! The first day, smoke came pouring out of a light switch. The whole house needed rewiring.!!!!
First sign of rain, the kids were yelling."Water is coming in"Every single room in this house leaked. A total new roof was required!! You name it, it needs doing, but its our house and we love it. Its a challenge but its really coming on. And the area is to die for. Country lifestyle with the city just down the road. If you are ever in the area, please drop in. The beers always cold, and theres always a bottle of wine to be had!!

Our Home away from Home

Our family loves water sports. We are at the River Murray ,a little town called Blancetown, every 2nd weekend in the summer months. We have a little boat and friends and family, and spend two or three days just enjoying wakeboarding, skiing or anything else you can do behind a boat. Oh yeah a little bit of drinking around the campfire at night tops these weekends off!!! See my State of South Australia pages for more info!!!
