F is for

Football, and not just any football but Rugby League Football.

My oldest son has just started highschool this year and will be 13 in April. He is a sports nut, he will even watch lawn bowls on tv if there is no other sport on. My boys are very active and play a variety of sports including - Rugby League, Touch Football, Taekwondo, Nippers (surf lifesaving) and little athletics it keeps me very busy.

My oldest son is very talented (as you may be able to see by all of his trophies), his favorite sport though is his Rugby League and he has always had the dream of one day playing for the Brisbane Broncos. Hopefully this dream will come true for him, he certainly has the talent and the heart for it, and this year he has been selected in the Rugby League Excellence program at school. Anyway so when it came time to decorate his bedroom there was only one subject "Brisbane Broncos".

I lurk to your blog sometimes from Jessica McCash's and really enjoy it!

I was wondering if you'd be interested in a bloggy re-design. I am just getting started and would love to do one for you if you are interested. You can see some of my work here:


Let me know if you are interested!

Sounds a very talented boy! I have a son of the opposite extreme, he thinks chess is a sport! He loves his books and inventions but not sport, much to his dad's dismay.
I love your son's room, it's a proper boys den.

Hi Linda! Thanks for visiting and leaving such a nice, encouraging comment! I intend to take your very advice.

You're lucky to have such a talented boy! A former colleague of mine is from New Zealand and one of the first things he did when relocating here in Finland was to find a rugby team! Yep, we have them too :-)

Hi! Thank you so much for visiting my blog! Iam sureI will be having a few sprts fans in the house as the years go by, lol! My hubby used to play foot ball and loves it. My family doesnt mind all of the pink in my home. My hubby feels I deserve it being surrounded by only males, lol! He is very easy going and I dont even think he notices it.

Your home is lovely! I agree completely with waking up to the sound of birds! It is winter here and hearing the birds outside my bedroom window in the morning is one of the things I miss the most!

Oh! I have for sons. They are grown and married now, but every sport you can imagine, they were involved with! Tennis, golf, soccer, track, baseball...basketball....

Hi Linda, this is a great room! Oh my boys would love this (maybe not the Broncos so much hahaha!). Bet he loves to hang out in there all the time, and I bet his friends are jealous that he has such a cool and creative mum!

Hi, Linda,

Thanks for visiting my blog. Sorry I haven't got back to you sooner. I've enjoyed catching up with reading your A-Z, I especially love that dolls house, simply gorgeous! You asked me the name of the software I used for my card recovery. It's simply called "Card Recovery" and my hubby downloaded it from cardrecovery.com, it says free trial, but when you get to the end, payment is required to get the code for the actual recovery and by then we thought we'd gone so far, so might as well pay.....(You know what it's like!) I hope you don't ever have to use it though.But handy to know these things.
