|Come back blue skies - I miss you!|
What a rotten weekend! It was a shocker. Sick children, the aftermath of a mini flood Friday morning (ankle deep water right through Bell's room) and an unbelievable amount of rain coming down since Thursday night. I'm hoping this week fairs a little better.
Loving this list which is doing the rounds at the moment:
making: plans and essential appointments for the Christmas season. Some days are booked already!
cooking: beef and mushroom stew, chicken soup and delicious muesli bars for the baking tins.
drinking: tea, cups and cups of tea. And in the evening a couple of glasses of bubbles.
reading: Tom's pirate book. It's a bit gruesome to read to the boys so I'm enjoying it instead.
wanting: new dining room chairs. I found the ones I like. Just need to convince Mr H.
looking: at summer dresses online.
playing: with the mega blocks. Building towers and fire stations. Essential rainy day distraction.
sowing: the seeds of ideas in Mr H's head about an overseas holiday after next years wine vintage.
wishing: for the safe arrival of my sister's baby due in the next few weeks.
enjoying: chocolate once the kids are tucked up in bed.
waiting: for the sunshine to return.
liking: Insurance! All of the flood clean up is being taken care of by the professionals.
wondering: when the seasons colds and bugs will disappear. George seems to be in the thick of it.
loving: warm blankets, a roaring fire and movies in the evening.
hoping: the flood clean up and restoration will happen quickly. Things are a bit cramped inside!
marvelling: at modern day dads. I would be lost without Mr H. He often swoops in and rescues me.
needing: some "me" time and "couple" time.
smelling: spring flowers in vases. Such a strong yet sweet smell.
wearing: sheepskin lined boots indoors and gumboots outdoors (I was in jandals last week?!)
following: UK friends updates on Facebook - new babies galore at the moment.
noticing: that the apricot trees pink blossoms have started to show.
knowing: that the warm weather will be here again soon.
thinking: about dusting off my sneakers......and start doing more exercise......maybe.
bookmarking: overseas holiday destination ideas.
opening: Bell's school notices - 2 weeks after she has been given them!
giggling: at Tom's "verbals" - some of the things that come out of his mouth....hilarious.
Have a great week!
