So I've started on gifts for the nieces.
Of course I should have started making Christmas gifts a few months ago but... well, I didn't.
I've got the supplies but now I just need the time... oops!
+ We have a fair bit of construction happening outside our kitchen window. It's been going on for a few months now. We all watched with fascination as an old block of flats got demolished, the ground cleared and now there's a big drilly thing there, drilling holes I guess.
It reminds me of you dad and your 'drilly-thing' attached to the back of your tractor that you'd use on the farm for fencing. I enjoy watching them use the big drilly thing cos it reminds me of you.
+ While Luca's at school I love spending the day with these two boys with the beautiful eyes and delicious giggles. We had a home day today so I could do some knitting...!
Cars, trucks, tractors and trains were all brought into the lounge so I could sit and knit while the boys played with the cars. Well, Beni played with them and Max gummed them.
+ When Beni walked into our bedroom with a tomato in each hand and started banging them together, I had two thoughts run through my head:
1) Tomato juice on cream-coloured carpet = not good.
2) Tomato Chutney!
So it's now bottled up and just needs to be labelled ready for Christmas gifts. It's made me feel very domestic with them sitting proudly on the kitchen bench top.
+ My husband is sitting beside me on the couch going mad at the Angry Birds game he's playing on his phone. He didn't like me reminding him "it is just a game...". I think he's frustrated because he can't beat any of the High Scores set by Luca. Fair enough.
+ This totally cracked me up! Something we've got to look forward to once the teenage years hit... that and being eaten out of house and home.
+ YAY it's the weekend! Happy Days to you all X
