Cleaning Day!

December 7, 2008

Today is a Cleaning day for me!  I am trying to get more and more organised!  I already have 2 loads of washing on the line with another load in the washing machine!  Our bed made and tidied just need to vacumn and then do all 3 bathrooms and then vacumn and a rough tidy of David’s room and then hit the open plan dining, living and kitchen areas!

This past weekend was great!  After a Pankcake breakfast on Saturday morning the 3 of us headed out to Botany and went to the Warehouse and got Sparemint leaves and a few other things, T&T for more shorts for David.  With all this wonderful weather Daycare are doing lots of water play and so we have to send 2-3 changes of clothes each day!  Then it was off to Harvey Normans to pick up David’s Christmas Photo! I am going to do a layout and then upload that to my blog and you will all see it then!  Then it was off home via the Sushi Place to get sushi for my lunch and then home and working on some jobs around the house…it was such a nice night we had dinner outside on the back deck!

Yesterday we headed up to Manukau and then to the libary!  David just loves and really looks forward to going to the libary each week!  Then home and some water play and filling up the large clam shells with water for playing in after nap time.  I then spent the afternoon scrapping and then another lovely dinner outside on the deck after David had a blast in the water!

Good luck to everyone who has entered the Scrappin Patch Design Team call!  Can’t wait to hear who they have chosen!

Big hugs to Lisa who isn’t feeling the best at all at the moment…Love ya babe!  Making some dinners this afternoon for her husband to pick up for some of their meals this week! 

I also got out some fejoa puree of the freezer and going to make some fejoa and ginger loaves!

Yay, all but about 6 I have sent out all our Christmas Cards!  Still haven’t put up our Christmas Tree yet but want to get that all done before I head down to Queenstown!

A Month since my last post!

December 3, 2008

The last month has just flown by and everything seems to be blending into one.

I have gotten all of David’s pressies and for all the kids except one that we need to buy for beit that some of them are still on layby!  Working on making some other gifts for my mum and mother in law!  Have no idea as always what to get Richard.

My hayfever is driving me up the wall!  Worse than any other year this year.  Woke up this morning wanting to scratch not just my eyes, nose and throat out but even my ears!  Been to the docs and along with Telfast also have now got a nose spray and eye drops!

I need to put some more things onto Trade Me this week to sell.

I am off to Queenstown on Dec 13th for 3 and a bit days to meet the wonderful Adam from JAG Air who was our Dream Maker and you will all have seen on Close Up for Lisa’s Weekend of a Life Time!   I am luckly to be there when he has a few days off so it will be great to finally meet in person as we have become quite good friends!

David is now at daycare 5 days a week until the new year and they are hoping a full time position will be available for him then!  It is doing him wonders being there that extra day and the teachers have mentioned a few other words that i didn’t know that he has started trying to say!  Also it was a little boy ben’s birthday yesterday and they had cake in the afternoon and i asked david “who’s birthday was it today” and he said “Beeeee” which is awesome he was def trying to say ben but just with out a n on the end but you could def tell he wasn’t trying to say bee if that makes any sense. 

We have also had 2 different teachers on 2 different days comment how when the parents start to arrive in the afternoons that he knows just what parents belong to which kids and which bag belongs to each kid and goes and gets their bags and points to the area where all the kids notes etc are kept for the parents to get them!

Well, must be off but going to try and blog again this week!
