FREE!!!

YES!  All the kids are off to school and kindy today.  It's only a half day for Keera today, so in reality I only get half a day to myself.  In fact it's only 4 hours... but I'll take it!

I will be working on the toppers for my bedroom furniture again today, hopefully I will get them done by the end of the day.


ABOVE: the larger two, for the chest of drawers and my dressing table.  They just need binding put on and they will be finished.

ABOVE:  I love this little whale *smiles*.

ONWARD...

Seriously!  I've spent the past 2 hours just fluffing around the house, tidying, straightening, titivating and moving ornaments!
Kinda like making the house feel like MINE again.
YES... I have to share it with everyone, but just sometimes I like to feel like it's EXACTLY how I want it!

So.  Now I'm happy and can make a start on sewing for the day.  I've got 2 hours till I have to pick up Keera, better make the most of it.

4.25 pm:  And everyone is home again.  Brylee and Griffin both had good days.  Brylee passed NCEA Level 1 it would appear, so she's onto Level 2 this year.  She still isn't sure what direction her life will go in once she leaves school.

Griffin is determined to do well this year and pass Level 1 so he can get into a building apprenticeship next year.  I hope he does it, cos it will be the first step to him becoming an independent person one day.

Keera... well she's working towards getting to school in July!  We will have to give her a big birthday party this year for sure.

Dinner tonight was some ravioli (pre-cooked, just boil for a few minutes) with a cheese and tomato sauce.  I also added onion and bacon.  It was bloody nice.

Watching TV tonight,  no sewing.  Off to bed soon.

  3. I know exactly how you feel, we have our daughter her partner and our two adorable grandchildren living with us it's been over two years and because they are both studying maybe another year or two, and to make it work I give up a lot of me in the house; but I focus on the fact the nothing is forever and in the mean time we get to spend time with our grandchildren and their Mum and StepDad who are lovey people. Chris I admire all you do for your family, and you do it lovingly and the very best you can, and of course your hubby. Jo

  7. Well done Brylee :-). Siobhan didn't know what she wanted to do either, still not really sure. Griffin is going at it with a great attitude so that is half the battle.
