ABOVE: I bought a Poker set yesterday... had intended to play with Andrew last night, but got yakking on the phone.. and the next thing I knew everyone was going to bed! Pffffft, dirty rotten stopouts.

ABOVE: a couple of nights ago, me feet were sore... so STEW gave me a foot massage! He had never done that before!!! HE GOT LUCKY. *snigger* I am SURE you wanted to know that.

ABOVE AND BELOW: a house that I fell in love with at St Helliers... not a style I normally love, but the chunky stone was just beautiful, and it had an AMAZING view of the city and harbour!

Today: well I head back to WINZ to get Griffin's 'Disability Allowance' approved and started... then we will probably go out with Amanda and Andrew again.....

It must be my lucky day... I had no problems at WINZ, in and out within an hour... and Griffin's Allowance was granted. So, that will help with paying for the Psychologist's bill... and extra lessons etc.
I think we are off to Onehunga now to check out Dress Mart... I need some new cotton 3/4 pants ... I've been wearing Polyester/nylon ones and they are giving me a huge heat/sweat rash ... NOT NICE!
End of Day: finally playing Poker with the boys... after shopping and not buying ANYTHING! Wow, that has to be a record! nite nite.


  1. That house is amazing.

    And now you have the song Poker Face running through my head. lol

  2. It must be a relief to finally have some answers about Griffin. Hopefully WINZ will not prove too difficult to deal with.

    Have a great day & enjoy the sunshine :-)

  3. I have to tell you again that I think you're tops. So many parents wouldn't/don't fight for their kids, they just take whatever the teacher says and blame the child. And it surely isn't his fault.

    So jealous of your beautiful weather. We're just warming up to mid 50 degrees F after a freeze spell here last week. Enjoy the sunshine!

  4. I'm glad you are making progress in getting Griffin some help. Why does it have to be so hard?
    I would love to see inside that house.

  5. We love playing poker, it's so much fun! Hee hee, you are too cute about the foot rub and *ahem* the extras. ;)

    Good to hear that things continue to go well with Griffin. You're such a sweetheart helping your kiddos out the way you do.

  6. Hee hee hee, Stew did one foot and a furry massager licked the other! lmao Lucky girl and great forward planning on Stew's behalf about the foot massage and extra's! lmao Hugs Naomi

  7. Hi there,

    that IS a cool house. I love the position it's in. (My Nan used to live in a villa across the road.)

    Looks like you guys have moved house-I'm enjoying catching up on your blog:)

    Looks like you're doing good as usual.
