 ABOVE:  our little Granddaughter Sienna yesterday, with her Dad Russell.  She is a little live wire... and we can't wait to meet her in person.  Fingers crossed and everything going well, Russell and his family will be over here this coming Christmas.  That is going to be so cool!

ABOVE:  Tess's tummy right now.  She is due about the same time as Lacy... only we don't know what this baby is gender wise.  It's gunna be so much fun next Christmas, with all the new babies here!  

Today:  Stew and Steve are back at work, and Bex and I are home looking after the kids.... and trying to keep them entertained.  Shouldn't be too hard... we have all the electronic games available!  Plus the spa pool, the park, and so on.  


My curls fell out overnight.  That is all.... for now.
I decided last night to make myself a little pouch thingee to hang around me neck with me phone in it, so I could stop putting it in me bra.  So I did.

ABOVE: then Bex chimed in with "Make me one for my PSP too!"... so there they are.  Hers' is the Seahorse one and mine is the black one with blue bling.

ABOVE:  they are both fully lined too.  NOW I just have to make three more for the kid's PSP's.    Shaking me head.. no rest for the wicked.

Nearly time to make the kids some lunch...

KENTUCKY GAL:  A PSP is a small, portable, hand held Playstation.  

TRACY:  not a problem...  any colour/pattern/picture preferance? ($9 will cover fabric and lanyard)

As it is a lovely fine afternoon, I decided we could all walk down to Manurewa, pick up Bex's car from Steve and drive home again.

So we did.
 ABOVE: Orford Park.... on our way down the road to Manurewa...

ABOVE:  them up ahead... couldn't hear the constant yabber from those three kids... I tell ya, they never stop!

ABOVE:  I bought some more Lanyards from one of the cheapie shops in Manurewa.  

Bex went to the supermarket and got a few things for dinner... they (Steve and Bex) are doing dinner tonight.  What a novel idea!  lol

End of Day:  patiently waiting for dinner... and trying NOT to tell them how to do it "my way".... I'm sure it will be fine!  
ON TRACK:  Yes!  And we did a nice big walk today too.

    Chris - Sienna is adorable!! And two new babies coming. That is so exciting!!

    I just found out I am to be a grandmother in Sept. I'm 55 and hubby is 61...and we are ready!! Ha!

    What is a PSP?

    Kentucky Gal ; )

  6. Sienna is gorgeous! You're a little bit special with all your beautiful grand children:)

    I love your phone covers. When I go out walking I put mine under my bra strap. It's supportive!!

  7. I love the PSP case, I was going to buy one for Siobhan until I saw the price of them. I don't suppose I can pay you to make me one for her too :-). Unless you are getting sick of making them of course.

  8. Glad you are back to making things. Also glad you told your anon. friends who criticise too much to go jump in a lake.

  9. I love your new projects -they are both perfect -just like your grandchildren-they are so lovely.

  10. Oh Sienna is so cute!!! She and Emily favor each other I think.

    Oh I would love one of those covers for my blackberry. I am sure shipping charges would be high although. I have no clue.

    Grandbaby # 16 for us is due in Sept. It's a girl!! We just found out today.

    God Bless~

  11. That's a big baby!

    I kind of like the idea of you keeping your phone in your bra. With your money and pistol! :-)

  12. Looks like a full on weekend of fun for you. Glad to hear all went well.

  13. Reminds me of my kids. They argue with each other all the time.
