Peach and blueberry crumble, banana cakes and shortbread all on offer.
Meals that have been enjoyed: steak sandwiches for children and stir fry for us; sushi, homemade bread and crumble.....
Cooler weather, with rain mainly at night and then clear, clean days.
All extra activities were cancelled independently, one particularly fortuitous as it usually occurs on a Wednesday and all four children were home that day.....
Fuschias in the garden, tomato plants growing well....
A kookaburra on the washing line..............

I also reorganised our first aid box. Now it is easy to see what we have and it is easy to find it in a hurry.

The day improved as we had my parents over. They brought 9 year old son's birthday present. Sushi was enjoyed for lunch. We then went to an indoor rock climbing centre for the birthday party. Lots of active boys enjoyed the time. Lovely parents and Eric's sister, the birthday boy's Godmother belayed.
Home again, thankful that the groovy aunt had entertained the girls.
Husband E and I will do a little more around the house and then order our Thai dinner. Tomorrow we have been parents for a decade. Oh, our dear son.

A Day in my Life; fuzzy-just like my photo's...........
I will now have to type the plan for here onwards as it is going to get hectic.
Firstly swimming for 6 year old and 4 year old daughters. Afterwards I hope to duck to a hardware store quickly for a rug for the bathroom.
Husband E will feed the children and clean the windows in the family room that has had all the work done in it. I then will go to my sister in law's birthday dessert night. I have even put jewellery on for the occasion; the beads of the necklace are made of rolled up bits of magazines and then are lacquered. They were made in South Africa but I bought them here at a fair trade stall. After coming home, I will help husband E move furniture into the family room. I will also make sure that all is in order for 9 year old's birthday party tomorrow.
This is all quite unusual for a Friday night for us- Husband E and I usually order Thai takeaway food for dinner and watch a movie together.

A kind award from GingerLouise Clothing. I'm afraid I sometimes participate in the community of awards and sometimes not. It is all reliant on the amount of spare time I have and if my internet connection is strong!! This morning I have cancelled an appointment so I thought I would join in!! Also there is less housework at present as who can vacuum when the living room looks like a junk shop?
The idea of this award..... to list six things that make me happy and then tag six other bloggers.
1. Starting the day quietly in prayer.
2. My family.
3. A good,strong coffee in the morning.
4. No rushing, time taken to savour....
5. A good belly laugh.
6. Crisp linen in the warmer months, soft flannel in the colder months.
Six creative bloggers, who I might add give me joy and encouragement when I read them....
