School Holidays day two

still alive and kicking…

had to go to the plaza to take care of some banking. I had promised the boys I would buy them a Thomas book each (I love that a BOOK that costs me a whole $2.75 will make them so happy). We got books, took care of banking, got some coke, got Bonnie Boo’s birthday pressie then the boys saw the plaster fun house and wanted to have a go – I let them…then we had to wait for them to dry so we had a donut then collected them and got home at lunchtime – half the day gone!

Still we had lunch and the boys did some cutting (had also bought more kid scissors) and pasting and Owen drew a picture of himself with his teeth missing…rivetting stuff really.

I actually cooked a proper dinner – turkey chops with mashed sweet potatoes, peas and corn with chicken gravy….Owen actually ate it ALL (even though usually he would moan that he doesn’t like vegetables) Yay (not talking about the other two grrrr).

Still haven’t heard from the girl about the Disney on ice tickets (she was going to call when they were ready to collect) – bit nervous – glad I haven’t told the kids – hope it happens.

progress made on shoes – one is almost done.

oh and I got to preorder some stuff from the SU mini catalogue – can’t wait to get my hands on it!

school holidays – day one

Agenda – 9.30-10.30 swimming lessons

at some point shop for prescription….

How did it go?

started with a sleep in til 8am – GOOD.

proceeded with the ongoing battle to get Brett dressed – BAD

swimming was good and Owen was excellent playing his leapster and watching quietly.

they all played nicely inside and outside for most of the day – after an initial session of whinging every 30seconds for an hour or so.

Shops – corey threw a wobbly – mostly as he was tired I suspect. In pj’s b4 dessert avoids the getting dressed war and bed and straight to sleep.

Tommorrow – we have to do the shops in the morning (payday) but that is it apart from awaiting a call to pick up our free tickets to see disney on ice for Thursday….it’s a surprise for the kids they have no idea.

hmm it might be a good time to do the list and not go near the shops for two weeks – hmmm
