Hi there! Thanks for stopping by this week. Today we start school holidays and these are the holidays I don’t usually mind. The weather is pretty good and we seem to enjoy them a little more. Although, they will eat me out of house and home, that’s the only part I hate… all the food!!! Last week my usual grocery shop did just not last. We went through everything so quickly and we were scrounging around those last few days. This morning I headed out early and loaded the fridge and pantry back up. Well it is school holidays so I need double of everything haha! I think my boys also must be going through a huge growth spurt because we can’t keep up with the food!
So what else has been happening around here lately…
I flew to Sydney a few weeks ago (and even caught the train like a big city slicker!!) to see my new specialist. I wasn’t there very long, and he didn’t have much to offer me other than what I already knew. I have been really trying to keep well over the last month. I am ok for now so I will roll with that. I am heading back to Sydney in about 2 weeks for a sleepover, an MRI, a scope and a chat about planning for a colostomy bag. I am ok with that, but nervous and I feel like the timing is never going to be right for it, so I am best to just get going with it all. Maybe before Christmas. We’ll see…
Then I came back from Sydney feeling a little flat and my niece chopped my hair off. I still love it. Lifted my spirits! I might even go a touch shorter again in a few weeks.
Cricket season is upon us! With 3 boys, a husband as a coach and many many teams between them all, I have no choice but to love cricket. And I do. I actually love it much better than footy. The biggest kid is still wearing a sling for his broken collarbone, but still manages to throw a ball to his brother. Hopefully he’ll be right in a couple of weeks. We have another scan this coming week.
We had footy presentation. They are so gorgeous. I can say that because I am their Mum!!
These 2 always have a job to do, or something to fix. The big kid will never sit down, or watch tv or play a computer game. That’s not a bad thing, but this is why sometimes I hate school holidays because he cannot settle down!
My Dad and my hubby.
I had thought briefly in my mind I would like a pendant for over my new dining table. I wasn’t specifically looking, but came across this heavily reduced one so I couldn’t say no! It’s much bigger than it looks and it’s really transformed the space.
Plants, plant and more plants.
I smudged the house last week. I had been reading about the benefits of ridding the home of negative energy leading in to the spring weather. I got right in to the corners, the mirrors and even smudged the kids. Haha. Yep, there was a WHOLE lot of eye rolling!
Next mini DIY/reno job is my laundry. The black chalkboard wall will go. I think I’ll put some Easy Craft Panels there. Then I need to work out some sort of overhead cupboards/shelf/hanging space. To the right is a walk-in-storage cupboard. I am lucky because my laundry is HUGE, but I never had the $$ at the time we built to fully kit it out. This might be a Christmas holiday project.
Speaking of projects this one is almost done. Husband will finish today he said! I’ll blog through this process soon for you.
OK, so Bear and I had a moment yesterday. Well, he was booked to get groomed and wasn’t happy. Went to bite the groomer savagely TWICE. And fair enough the groomer said no to trimming him. 4 years and Bear is getting worse with it. SO, after all of the drama yesterday he now his booked to be sedated at the vet’s next week to get a full groom. He is already so matted and hot that he needs that winter coat off. I have bought clippers before and tried myself but that too didn’t go down well. He didn’t try to bite me when doing it, just didn’t cooperate and I was hopeless at it. So it looks like I’ll be giving him to the vet 2-3 times a year now….
Oh, and please come and buy my crystals. I have lots arriving every week. I am SOOOOO in love with them. I have little pockets all around my home with trays and plates of little special treasures. I carry some in my handbag and I am such a believer of their good energy. That’s what it’s all about – seeing them and feeling good. Each one has meanings written in the listings.
Hope you have a great week ahead. KC. x
