My Favourite Corner

Whatever it was that ended me up in hospital has completely knocked the stuffing out of me. I've had a couple of days where I could be found napping when Will was in the afternoon and a couple of days where I've headed to bed well before any of the kids. Not much progress is being made on an ever growing list of stuff to do and I am really craving some energy and enthusiasm to come along and give me a swift kick of motivation. In the meantime though at least I can look at this....

currently my favourite corner of the house! Home grown sweet peas which are in total abundance meaning I can replace them every time they get a bit old with more and more!!

And avoid looking at these...

my least favourite corners!

Thirty Five

You wouldn't have noticed because I had a bunch of posts set to go this past week but I've been sick so I am finally just now catching up hence the delay in getting this posted.

So this is Home Schooling

I haven't really ever written about what we are doing home school wise for a variety of reasons. What I can say is that no day is ever really the same. But the best ones often end up looking like that- at some point or other. The plan is for Merenia to go back to school next year (not Whenuapai) Will will most defintely miss her!

Wednesday's With Willy

Wednesday's are probably mine and Will's most favourite and now that the weather is so fabulous they have been even better. We have been packing a lunch box to which we add a piece or two of sushi from Sushi-Ya (our fave sushi place in Brown's Bay) and sometimes go and get a drink from Starbucks- Will has a fluffy with Marshmallows. And when we're done we head for the beach. After a bit of an explore and/or paddle Will is ready to be done. Then he will quite often ask if there is time to go to the op shop (love that kid) we like "the Cat and Dog Op shop" best- Will because there is a Cat and Dog SPCA donation box outside and me because they have a random variety of things and don't over price their books (unlike the Sally Army round the corner!!). Wednesdays are good!

Go A Visiting...

Les, Will and Merenia went and caught up with Ehren (semi) recently I think Will and Merenia go for the toys. And I get the impression that Ehren thinks that Will and Merenia are just an entertaining floor show.

I'm Sucker for a Photo of Reading

Or even three photos of reading... especially when he does it in his little red chair and looks so studious....

Finger Painting

Every so often during the day in a weekday I will attempt to do a bit of scrapbooking. In order to be 'allowed' to do it Will needs to be suitably entertained. He likes to do punching, cutting, hammering and painting. And finger painting.....

While the Cat's Away

Various People Will Be Really Happy But We're Not.

Roller Coaster Ride Over.

Limbo Extinguished.

We didn't get the job.

Rats is an understatement.

The only one relieved is the cat.

Oh my, 13 years.... crazy stuff... amazing boy.

Love you Kieran.
