It’s school holiday time here in my little part of the world-a time that normally I dread because it means that I never seem to have time to do anything house wise while both kids are home 🙂 I know thats a pretty weak excuse but its true. I have decided that these holidays are going to be different. I AM going to enjoy them and make the most of them!
Monday was a nice quiet day, Fletch went to a friend’s birthday party so only Annalise and myself were at home. We had a bit of a lazy day, pottering around, not really doing much.
On Tuesday I decided that the kids and I would have an outing, so we rugged up in some warm clothes (it was freezing cold with really strong winds) and hiked over the hill to the Botanical Gardens for the day. I am really proud of my kids, Annalise only needed to be carried up the hill and walked the rest of the way and Fletch walked all the way. They had a ball feeding the animals at the gardens and playing on the equipment.
We all agreed it was a wonderful day!
Yesterday was spent putting Christmas presents on layby and also spending time with my mum and brother. The kids had a ball catching up with Uncle Matt. We then had dinner with my parents and brother and Mum outdone herself as usual with a roast pork and baked vegies.
Which brings me up to today. School holidays are almost half over, Fletch is off to Canberra to visit his dad next week, so it will just be the Princess and I for the week. Today I have to cook a corned silverside, so after I have a shower and get the kids ready for the day, we’ll be heading down to the shops and getting the last couple of things that I need for dinner. Then its going to be a cleaning day! Fletch has to get his bedroom clean, I want to get the lounge and kitchen clean and then if time permits re-organise my fabric stash!
So until next time, take care and have fun!
