a little about me

For those who may actually read this, I thought I'd tell you a little more about myself.

My name is Janine, I am 26 and I live in Brisbane up in sunny Queensland (humid one day, more humid the next). I am one of 4 girls and we are all very close... my memories of my childhood are filled with love, laughter and music. I am now married to a wonderful man and we have two gorgeous children, Emily who is 1 and Parker who is 15 weeks old.


My husband and I
I met my husband through a car club I joined when I had my ute and we just clicked.... We have since gotten rid of both our cars in the place of something more family friendly (family life will do that to you!), but still share a passion for them and hope to do up a muscle car down the track.

I am a qualified hairdresser and did that for 7 years before tiring of the industry and making the switch to a normal 9-5 office job which is where I remained until I had Emily in 2009. She is an absolute joy besides the occasional toddler tantrum and is also very stubborn which my mum would tell you she gets from me but I'm sure she must get it from her father :p We added Parker to our little family 15 weeks ago and I'm just so in love with my family, they are my everything. Parker and Emily are both fantastic sleepers so at nights I transform into Little Wildrose mode and between that and my kids I lead a very busy life! My husband works in the mines in central QLD on a week on, week off roster. I hate the weeks he is away, but do enjoy the good quality time we get to spend as a family every second week.

We own a large block of land out west in a rural town and plan to build our dream home once our current house sells. I'm very much looking forward to the fresh breezes, the beautiful views of the mountain range and having more room for the kids to grow up and run around in when they are older.

Our dirt :)

With that serene picture in my mind i'm going to sign off and get some housework done! Someone has got to do it and seeing as my husband is away at the moment I guess that someone is me!!! :)
