Sunday Smiles..... On a Monday!

A lovely long weekend was had here, we spent time with our family and friends, went for a walk around the Mount, had a spontaneous family dinner out after our walk, that was lovely.

All in all, a brilliant weekend, I hope yours was too!

Made with pirate fabric from Sew Addictive Fabrics! I have a few pieces of fabric from them, that I really need to get on and use to make something gorgeous!

Have a great week, I'm off to hang out my washing then snuggle up in bed!

Friday Holiday Fun.....

Happy Friday!

Mr 5 had a play date with an old Kindy friend today, so we decided to play mini putt. We got to the park and there was a kids carnival, the kids were very excited. Mummy not so much (bad Mummy!)

Organisation.....

I've not had much motivation for quite awhile, and last night, while ironing my pillow cases, I decided to empty out the linen cupboard and put everything back in tidily and get it more organised than what it was! Was quicker than I thought, since half my linen is still drying in the carport! The weather here has been terrible, so I have lines full of towels and sheets at the moment, the weather is slowly improving and my washing pile is getting smaller, although the folding and ironing piles are growing.



Photobucket

I've decided to try the sheet and duvet sets in their pillow cases idea, will be easier if the Mr decides to get all domesticated, I wont be telling him used the wrong top and bottom sheets!

 Photobucket

Off to to grab some lunch, and then get some more cleaning up done while the kids aren't here! Here's hoping my motivation hangs around, so I can get more organising done around here!

Playing in Nana's garden - using fish eye setting.....

Have a great week - the Mr is back at work from tomorrow, not sure if more stuff will get done around the house or not! I'm hoping to get my organising mojo on and get the house decluttered! The boys are on holiday at Nana and Poppa's until Tuesday, and then Miss Muffet goes to Nana and Poppa's for a couple of nights - the house is quiet with only one child around!

Holidays.....

This is what we do when it's meant to be summer, and mother nature has other ideas!

Summer..... what's that?

It's meant to be summer here in little old New Zealand. But after the last week and a half, you wouldn't think so. Rainy and cold sums it up well, and it's meant to carry on next week. So our camping trip is cancelled. We are hoping to do a couple of day trips or days full of activities around here. Fingers crossed!


I turned these.....

Into these, Thank You cards for all our lovely family that bought the children gifts.

Yesterday, there was a break in the weather. It was great to see the kids playing nicely together for a few minutes at least!

Photobucket

Do you think I can get away with not folding the washing, since it makes a nice bed for him?

Photobucket

Miss 3 helping stack the firewood away, she didn't want to come inside for dinner, so dinner went cold and was waiting patiently for her to finish helping Daddy!

Hope everyone else is having a good weekend, and that your weather is better than ours!
