More Cleaning

Yesterday I spent the whole day going through my sons' clothing to see what fits and also cleaning out their closets. Very satisfying. Then my youngest son and I started in on the activity room. Oldest son would not help. He grumbles so much when he does it's not very pleasurable when he does at any rate.
Have to clean and wash today but will try to get back into the activity room.
Also, must resolve to take back up the Wii Fit.

Mobile Madness

My 9yo and I created a mobile on Vasco da Gama yesterday. I drilled holes in CDs and we used my circle cutters to cut out the text and pictures he had created and pasted them on to the CDs. Then we used some twine to thread them together and hung them off a hanger. The Teacher really liked it. Creative Mums rule.

Spring Cleaning in Autumn

My Mum is having a garage sale in two weeks. I'm going to join in. Usually it's me running one with others joining me so I'll be quite happy to just tag along. I went through my laundry cupboard today and started on the shed. Lots to do but I have a deadline so it should motivate me.

PofTC - @ World's End

Not a huge fun of this movie saga. Watched the last instalment today. It was soooo long. Unfortunately I decided to eat my lunch during it and Jack licked his brain whilst I was doing so. GROSS!!!!!!!!!!
Getting organised today for Memoranza on Saturday. Only half ready. I'm going to do an 8x8 album of Troy and Kiki's wedding. It's going to be dead easy so I'll have to take other stuff to occupy me from 1:30 pm til 10:30 pm.

The future I was 90% sure I was going to have for the next 2 years has changed so I'm thinking about my prospects and wondering what do I want to do and how do I go about achieving it. I came up with an idea this morning and am going to set about achieving it. I have til 31 July.

Had some really disappointing news yesterday. Something I had been eagerly anticipating is now not happening and I will be sad for some time about it I'm sure.
Happily, I had 3 wonderful friends over for a couple of hours this morning to share tea and homemade cake with me and that took my mind off things.
Also, Perth is having such glorious May weather that it is hard to believe. I always lament at the first signs of winter as I love warm weather so much.

Impulsive Purchases

My girlfriends and I (all married) were having a discussion last night about big purchases. It seems that if hubby wants it you go out and buy either today or tomorrow. If we would like it we have to work on them slowly, or else have it impact on the hubby so he also then wants it for us to be able to purchase it. e.g. When we moved into the house we live in it had carpet in the meals area We had a 12 month old baby. You can imagine! Took me 2 years to convince hubby to rip out the carpet and replace it with a wood floor. It is so nice and so much easier to clean. If I had of been able to make it his job to clean te carpet we would have ordered the new floor promptly I'm certain of it.

Movie night

Last night I went to see the movie The Boat That Rocked with my friend Lorraine. It was about pirate radio in the 60s in the UK. Charming little movie. Remarkably, we were the only two patrons viewing this movie. We saw the late session which finished near midnight. Even more remarkably, we were the last two in the whole theatre and they locked the doors after we left!

Day 2

Well, I've managed to get on here two days in a row. Off to a good start.

This morning I'm looking to change my bedlinen. The new sheets and quilt cover I'm looking for seem to have disappeared from my linen closet. Oh, dilemma. Hence, I am now on the computer instead of trying to resolve the issue. haha

I am considering whether to use ebay again. I've been a member for a long time and have mixed results with buying and selling. I have done some spring cleaning and would like to sell some of the stuff online as it is in good nick. I may have to go the garage sale route again. I have one a year but am enjoying them less and less over time. Will have to ponder this some more.

1st one

Well, this is my very first blog post. I'm not so sure this is the thing for me but I'll give it a go. I had to join so as to become involved with someone else's blog.
I kind of like my blog's name though. Catchy.
