Scrapping Mojo back!

January 11, 2008

Yay my scrapping mojo is back!  Well it has been back since Monday.  Alot has actually happened since Monday.

Monday – My DS David started at Daycare.  He has been tearful in the morning but they have said that he is a great kid and he settles down once he has been outside to play etc.  He will be okay I know but I do worry!  Typical Mother but he seems to love the place.  He is going Monday, Thursday and Friday!  They fill out a little book each day and it comes home so what Richard and I have decided is that I am going to copy these comments down each day and do at least a page each week on what he has been doing at Daycare and put this into an Album that I have especially brought for Daycare.  Yesterday they played in the paddling pool.  On Monday we had been asked by one of his great teachers if he was allowed to go in the water as some of the Mum’s & Dad’s don’t like their kids getting wet or probably dirty.  He has a change of clothes I said go for it.  So yesterday he came home after loving his pool time.  Well today they were off to Totra Park for a few hours in the paddling pool and playing which I know he will just love!

On Sunday we had our friends from Wellington Jo & Derek and their 2 kids arrive.  The adults were going to Waiheke on Monday and we were having their 11 year old son and 12 year old daughter for 2 days and then they would come back for 2 nights.  Monday was David’s first day at Daycare so we stayed home and the kids did some OTP projects and I completed Richard’s Mini Album Anniversary pressie!  Will take a pic and post.  Well that isn’t where my scrapping stopped.  Since then I have just about completed 3 layouts, one is def done and the other 2 just need something else.  I was going to submit to this Months For keeps call but the layouts weren’t ready so going to submit next Month!  I am going to take pics and if I can will show on here but will have to check as I might want to submit a couple of them.  I am just loving scrapping at the moment.

Tuesday it was off with the kids and Richard in tow to take the 11 year old to Games Warehouse in Sylvia Park to spend his christmas money and then off to Botany for the 12 year old to spend her voucher at Whitcouls.  It is fustrating that they don’t have a Whitcouls at Sylvia Park.  Could be becuase of the Borders but then at the new Albany Mall they have both!  Then it was home and more scrapping!

Richard is off call now so we are looking forward to a wonderful family weekend!

We are also $1700 worse off than we were this time last week!  We have had to get the car seen to as the Air – Conditioning compresser has gone and so $1100 for that and other things, $200 for the check this morning along with oil change and other things and then Home Tune had to take away to their garage and they don’t have Courtesy vehichles so we have had to rent a little car for 5 days until Tuesday!  Yay not!  We def need a car and can’t be without one!

Sorry for not updating this blog more.  I am going to try and do this more this year!  Take care and look forward to getting your comments!

    Glad to hear David is settling into daycare. It does take some time, but obviously he’s enjoying himself. It’s great they have those books. And it’s a neat idea to do layouts using the comments (and they’ll probably have photos too, I know our daycare did those daily report books and used to stick photos in most days).

    Sorry to hear about the A/C in the car!! We have had that done twice on my car and it costs so much. If the A/C breaks again we are not fixing it, just too expensive.

    Ouch at spending that sort of money at this time … but I’m thinking that you definitely need the AC in working order.

    Day care pages – will make for interesting reading in years to come. Have fun.

    Can’t believe some parents don’t want their kids to get wet/dirty. That’s what day care is all about! Hard for you when he’s upset at being left but it will pass eventually – believe me – I’ve been there!
