ABOVE AND BELOW: Bliss.... my house is so clean and tidy!

AND why is this?........

ABOVE: THIS is why! I have banned the dogs from the living areas for today... I want to enjoy the tidiness for the day! And as I 'work' in the spare bedroom and they lie under my work table.. it's not like they are all alone eh? lol

Today I take Griffin to his Speld lesson again, which means I get to go to Pukekohe again.... yaaaaa! NOT that I can spend much money sadly... I have to pay for the Speld Teacher to attend Griffin's I.E.P. meeting at his school tomorrow. *sigh*... but it's a necessary expense to get the school working in the same way as his Speld Teacher. There is no point the school teaching him stuff he cannot ever learn... like how to write! He is never going to be able to write... they need to be teaching him to touch type and use a computer.


Back from Speld/Pukekohe... didn't buy much, just some more card (it's 40c a sheet cheaper out there!).. and a little punch thingee with 3 stars on it. Handy that will be as I put lots of stars on my cards.
Weather... crappy... one minute lovely and fine, next raining and cold. *Sigh*... going to have some lunch now... starving...
End of Day: and whoops! Didn't realise I hadn't been back on here since the afternoon! Oh well... I've been busy. Dinner/kids/making cards.... you know, just the normal sort of evening around here now. Time to bugger off to bed... nite nite.


  1. Man our SPELD teacher just went to Chris's IEP meetings for nothing, I have never had to pay for one to go and we have had 2 different ones throughout the time.... anyway have a good day :-)

  2. Oh but of course you COULD browse and see any NEW product in and perhaps buy next week. Have a nice day TAKE A BOOK or knitting, do you crotchet?

  3. Hope the school LISTENS to your tutor and that Roxy is fixed soon. Your pups look SO GOOD... and I'm imagining she didn't nick them all bloody like that last place. I'm still in horror at that. God bless ya.

  4. I really needed a giggle today. Poor Teddy, look at the expression on his dear face, he is not impressed is he? Hope the grooming went well yesterday. Martine

  5. Your house is way too clean..what do you use on your floors..they look great. Your poor puppies..haha, they look pitiful. Sooo cute

    Your house looks very spiffy and clean!! Wish mine did!! am jealous.
    I don't blame you for keeping them away from your nicely cleaned room!! it takes them 2 minutes and it's back to hair, chewed pillows, and rugs all over the

  7. Chris, I am SOOOOO JEALOUS of your clean and tidy house!(And, let's not forget your clean and tidy furbabies! You could shoot over here on the air waves and clean and tidy my house too! Then there would be two of us happy! LOL

    Or, we could switch and I could shoot over and clip your precious furbabies since I used to be a groomer. :)

    Enjoy your tidy as long as you can because life has a way of taking the clean out of tidy??? :)

    O, and good luck on Griffin's education! I wish more kids could have a "power-house" Mom to watch their back and not let them just be pushed on ! Good for you!

  8. O Shoot Chris!

    I just had to back up and tell you how beautiful your pups look! Like brand pictures of beauty!

    And SO sorry about your little vehicle ! I Hate to have mine with a boo-boo too!

  9. You've inspired me to go clean my floors. LOL! Rena is adorable! How did she get so big so fast?!?!?

    PS - I have no kids or dogs (just a messy hubby) and I still can't get my lounge room to be half as clean and tidy as your lovely rooms! Is there a story behind the antique looking chair in the corner? I love it! WOMBAT AGAIN

  11. Yeah to a super clean house. It's a good feeling, isn't it.
    Cheers, jj

  12. I wish my house was half that clean!

  13. HiYa Chris,
    Your fantastic and beautiful cards arrived yesterday, just as I was leaving to go to my quilting group, so of course I took them along and you do. So many compliments.
    They are beautifully done, your pics do not show just how beautiful and intricate they are. Thank you, and a special thanks for the full sized freebie you sent, that is going to be the B'day card for the youngest Grandie next week, he loves Bees
    Thanks again for the wonderful Artwork.

  14. I had an empty house last weekend. Everyone was away. I cleaned out closets and tidied. I forgot how good it feels to have a neat and clean place for more than an hour.

  15. Your house looks so lovely! I think that Teddy and Coco can handle be kept out for a day . . . or two!

  16. Oh the joy of a clean house! Enjoy it while it lasts.

  17. I need one of those for my husband!!
