The very first post.....


Well hello world!

This is the first post in our blog and I must admit it is very exciting for me.

Where to start? hhmmmmm

Grab a cuppa this may be a long one! hehehe

As mentioned the Murray family is made up of me, my husband Noel and our two children. Oliver is 7 and still coming to grips this morning with the fact that St. Kilda lost the prelim last night. Alexandria, our little princess, is 4 years old and turning 14, with a corker of an attitude towards life and keeps us on our toes. Noel and I have been married for 12 years on the 25th September - less for murder he keeps saying. LOL!

Noel and I are both British born and immigrated as children. I was born in Caerphilly, Wales, and have been in Australia on and off since I was 2 whereas Noel is originally from Manchester, England, coming out when he was 14. Our boy was born in Frankston hospital in a whirlwind 2 hour labour and emergency caesarean whereas Alex (yes we call her Alex) was stubborn even during labour and 40 hours later came into the world at Auburn hospital in NSW.

Currently I am working full time at a quarry as an administration assistant and a weighbridge operator. I am also a Trainee and Assessor which adds a different angle to my days on occasion. I enjoy it and everyday is different which I suppose makes the job easy to come to. Noel is a refrigeration mechanic and works long hours also... Bless him. Oliver is in grade 2 and Alex attends full time creche at the moment - but it's preps for her next year.

One of the major challenges I face in life is my weight - the fact that there is too much of it of course. So you will probably read quite a bit about the challenges that I face and how I overcome them (cross fingers). But with the support of family and friends combined with my desire to be a happier and healthier person I am sure that I can do it.

Well there you have it - a little insight into our world.

Bye for now.
