Yesterday was one of those full days in town.

First up I went to school as Williams grade 1 class was

leading Assembly.

He looked so tiny up there on stage, and even got to introduce

one of the teachers, so using the mic was the highlight

of his day....

(For some reason blogger loaded the other photo last..)

Then it was of to take Robbie to the dentist, that was the last apt

thank goodness. I have been going to the dentist weekly

for about 6 weeks But we are all drilled and filled for

another year..

Spent the rest of the day at the hospital with Greg,

I am getting alot of knitting done, nearly got my scarf finished.

Winter is here, that's for sure...
The wood is all chopped and stacked thanks to my
wonderful handy- man Andy
The days are crisp and the nights are
very cold....Wonderful weather..
This is my wood heater through the year, now
it's time to clean it off and get the
fire going....That's Today's job...

I am enjoying being at home and catching
up on the house work..I am able to slow down,
I even got out in the garden for half an hour early this is looking to being a good day.
I will go the the hospital later in the
day before soccer practise.
And I must do some grocery shopping as the
fruit and vege are getting low....

(Look at that worried face...)
I hope you all have a blessed day.


  1. I am being very naughty and checking our the Old Dairy while I am at work otherwise I wouldn't get the time. i saw you r email this morning but didn't have time to reply. I have been thinking baout you all though. Just caught up on your last few weeks wow how busy have you been!!

  2. Hi Mandy

    I am amazed how nowadays kids are encouraged to speak in public (eg run assemblies, readings at liturgies etc) and they do it so well. My girs went to a dear little Catholic primary school and I was in awe of them hopping up in front of a crowd to do readings and other jobs. My knees used to knock together when I had to do show and tell when I was at primary school. I physically felt sick and even today, I tend to go bright red if I do have my say at a meeting etc. Bravo to your little guy!

    It's really chilly down our way, almost a frost this morning - but I still walked 5kms! Brrr! I am already enjoying the odd curry, pot of soup and casseroles. I love winter a lot more than summer.

    Cheers - Joolz

  3. Hello Mandy
    Its very encouraging that these days schools allow even Preps to take part in the assemblies and services. Unfortunatley for many years we (the children) were told to sit down and listen which meant a lot of us were very lacking in the confidence need in later life.

    I must say that for all his 'worried looks' thats a very confident looking youngster you have there - William has the looks of a politician in the making lol

    Is there any news of when your Dh will be home? I'm sure he's relieved that you are getting lots of help with the heavy jobs at home.
    Take care
