Cricket Starts Today

Is that a bit sad that I look forward to this lol. I count down the days until the first test starts.   To me that signifies the start of summer . I think I may need a life. 

A few photo's for Grandma and Grandpa of Tess in her new school uniform.  She wasn't being very co- operative this morning.

Busy Couple Of Days

What a busy week this week is turning out to be.  Tomorrow is my day off and I'm really glad that I'm staying at home.  Monday was Tess' birthday and she had a morning tea which was really lovely so much yummy food and great company.  Hope you had a fantastic day Tess.

These photo's didn't turn out so good as the light wasn't the best and I'm still not real sure how to use my camera. lol

HAPPY BIRTHDAY LIVVY.

I had a big cleaning day planned for Tuesday after work I wanted to clean the house then clean out Lucy's cupboards.  She is such a pack rat the stuff that girl collects astounds me.  I can see her as an old woman surrounded by animals in a house full of junk.  I got a call from my hair dresser telling me she was closing her business on Thursday (I had an appointment next week) and that she had a cancellation and would I like to go that afternoon.  Well I'm not going to say no.  So I spent a relaxing couple of hours with her.  She has been my hair dresser for so long I don't know what I'm going to do without her.  She's moving an hour away and will be working one day a week so I guess I could manage the trip every couple of months.

 

A few weeks ago we decided to move Tess to another school next year.  She's been having trouble with a group of feral's and was miserable at school.  I was going to pull her out for the rest of the year but didn't really want her to miss three weeks.  So Monday night I rang the new school and asked her if they would take her this week so she started this morning.    After I finished work  I flew home and drove her to school which is 30Kms away to buy her  some uniforms.  It was so nice to see her happy after school she had a great day.  She couldn't get over how nice everybody was.  Some year 11 girls saw us in the office and at morning tea they went looking for Tess to make sure she was okay and that she wasn't having morning tea on her own.  How nice was that.  I noticed this morning even the kids looked happier at this school.  Fingers crossed that she will settle in and start to enjoy school.   So today I didn't get much done although I did manage to swap my foodstuffs and crockery cupboards around.     Had  a really nice dinner tonight cauliflower fritters and noodle salad.  Yum

Early Birthday Celebrations

My  dear friend Tess is celebrating her birthday tomorrow so naturally as one does we started early.  We went here.   Penefathings, Montville  is one of my favourite places to go for a meal and a bonus is it's close to home.

I had a lovely vegetarian risotto which was really yummy and very filling, the birthday cake was divine.  I was a lovely way to spend a Sunday.  It was really hot and muggy (I'm so not ready for this yet) when we got home we took the kids and the dog down to the Obi Obi for a swim.

Have a great week, the stormclouds are gathering and it's getting very dark very quickly so I had best get off here.

Well Ive finally done something that I vowed I probably would never do. Start a blog lol. Hi Tess, dont die of shock. I have no idea yet how to pretty this up, add bits and pieces etc etc and instead of doing this I should be sewing on ribbons to pointe shoes but this is so much more interesting. I think I will go and make a cuppa and then have a play around with this
Bye for now
