Monday already!

May 17, 2010 at 12:11 am | Posted in Uncategorized | 1 Comment

Wow, where did that weekend go?  I can’t believe that it is Lunchtime on Monday already.  Only 1 1/2 days until the Scrapping package is drawn….For every comment you leave you will have a chance at winning.

Our weekend has been quiet and good…I pulled my knee and leg on Friday night so have just been taking it easy.  David and Richard went to play gym and then we all went up to manukau for a bit and then a very quiet afternoon at home.  Yesterday the boys went out to Chipmunks in Puke then home for lunch and then David got asked to go on a playdate so that was lots of fun for him.

I have quite a few things that I want to get started and accomplised in the next few weeks and will hopefully be able to share a few things by the end of the month.  Just looking out my office window one of the things I need to do this week is weed our vege garden and plant some more of the plants that we have…I also can’t believe how fast our grass is growing at the moment.

What else has been happening?    Nic & Lucy have announced the 2011 Autumn Escape in Taupo and I have signed up yay so excited.  So excited that my BFF Louise and wonderful SIL Judith will be coming…We are going to have an awesome weekend…This time I will not be sick!  I will not allow myself to be.

We have got a new SLT that is starting with us in about 9 days.  Our previous one we had for abotu 5 weeks but she has moved to be closer to her Grandchildren.  I am just hoping that we have this SLT for awhile.

Well I must be off to pay some bills – argh May is def our month for bills!

Autumn is def here!

May 11, 2010 at 11:29 pm | Posted in Uncategorized | 4 Comments

Well Autumn is def here and it isn’t so nice outside so I am not minding or feeling guilty about spending the morning in front of the computer.

This morning we had a visit from Plunket who are now as of 3 months ago doing Before School visits with 4 year olds before they start school to dicuss developement and anything else that we may have concerns about to see if they can catch any kids that may need any extra help in areas before they start school.  We filled out forms and she observed David playing and then Daycare will have the same forms to fill out.  Then they will come back to us.  They have only just started this in the past 3 months. 

After 2 days of having good drop offs at Daycare we had a Tanty this morning  when dropping off and we got there latter than we thought and it was just in the middle of group time as they were heading off into their areas for Morning Tea and he’s not used to getting there at that time…I don’t think he is a kid that has to have everything in a strict routine but i think he also likes getting there at a normal time if that makes sense.  I def have my aniexty well up and wonder if there is other things going on but then others say not to worry….I guess it’s me and kids in general like a bit of routine.  Oh well we have started up a sticker chart and he has gotten a sticker the last 2 mornings and he will miss out on one this morning.

Unfortunatly I am having problems with Photos showing up on the Blog at the moment but the prize includes.  I hope the winner loves the package.

– 40 sheets of double sidded Patterned Paper

– Bag of flowers

– Bag of buttons

– Bag of assorted embelishments that have been released in the last year.

Thank you to everyone for your amazing comments you are all amazing friends.

Blog Giveaway & Mother’s Day!

May 11, 2010 at 12:47 am | Posted in Uncategorized | 6 Comments

Okay everyone firstly sorry for the delay in posting this…I started feeling a bit yucky on Sunday afternoon and just couldn’t get things done.  I am going to be taking a pic this afternoon and will upload the pic.

My Mother’s Day was lovely – David has an awesome memory and when he got up at 6am to go to the bathroom he called out Happy Mother’s Day Mummy!  The boys then awhile latter brought in 2 pressies which was an awesome Spatchular and scrapper for my baking and cookign which I am doing lots and lots of at the moment…They are awesome quality and are silicon and can take up to 300C .  Latter that morning Richard had a job out near the Airport so David and I went out for a look around which worked out to be the same time my SIL, BIL, a friend of theirs and 2 neices and nephew were returning from 3 weeks in Asia so we were able to go welcome them home.  Then it was off home via the Domestic Airport and home for a quiet afternoon.  The boys then surprised me and went to our favourite Chinese Takeaways and got us Chinese for Dinner.

Today we dropped off an excited boy to Daycare as David and the rest of his 4 year old room were off to Kelly Tarltons for the day.  They were leaving about 9.00am and due back around 2.00pm and were having a Picnic Lunch on the way back to daycare at a playground.  I must remember to ask his teacher if I can get hold of some of the photos so that I can do David some scrapbook pages.

David is loving being in the 4 year old room…We are having some days where he says he doesn’t want to go to Daycare but I think this is just a phase.

Have just read that Harvey Normans have .15c photos at the moment so I must work out which ones I want to get printed and take them in this week.

David is loving his PlayGym classes that we go to every Saturday morning for an hour.  There are now 3 kids from his Daycare which is loves having them there.  We can see his confidence growing more and more.

Lastly now my mum and dad don’t have a computer and so don’t read this blog but we are sneakly going to sneak down and drive down and see them on Sunday and go via the Supermarket and turn up with lunch…Hee hee hee we are sneaky.

I will be back in a bit with a photo.  Now for every comment that is left this week on what I will now make next tuesday night I will draw a name and let you all know the winner.

Great to hear from you all!

Tomorrow I will also be posting a pic of the Giveaway that one of my wonderful Blog Readers will be winning this time next week.  I am happy to post where ever including International.

Well this post is a short one but will post again tomorrow.  We are having Hot Dogs tonight and Richard and I have made the Hot Dog buns so off to get everything ready.

Have a great Saturday everyone.

Autumn Cleaning!

May 5, 2010 at 2:58 am | Posted in Uncategorized | 5 Comments

In our house this week we have ventured upon not Spring Cleaning but Autumn cleaning…Pretty much the same thing but during a different part of the year…I have decided before Winter really sets in I want to get the house totally sorted and organised and also around the house and gardens as well.  I am just taking it slowly and not pushing myself as I truley know what happens when i do that.

I have also been trying to fill our tins at home with home baking instead of buying cookies and cakes…I have also been praticing Pavlovas and with Richard’s help came up with a Bonfee Pav and also played around and made our own Caramel Sauce from Scratch.

I am just doing a short entry today but will update more tomorrow along with details about my wonderful trip to Autumn Escape and the boys adventure in Taupo.

I am also wondering how many people actually read my blog when i update it so from next Monday will be running a week long cometition.

As you may have noticed I have updated my blog header.  Have a great afternoon everyone.
