Acamping we will go….

why? why? why? do I never learn!

Yesterday the boys didn’t want to get anything done after school towards camping…I told them it would all then have to be done today….alas I forgot that while that might suit THEIR schedule it certainly didn’t suit mine. I was hot and tired with sore feet from standing all day in my sandals and I didn’t feel like…and again they didn’t feel like…and so it turned into a nag fest grrr I hate that!

Still they have mostly packed…I need to do some washing to finish off and they have pulled out most of the stuff we need which helps.  I have all day to do a bit of shopping and then get the car packed. We decided to ditch swimming lessons this week in favour of heading to Ballaraat straight from school. Sadly with all the HOT DRY weather we have been having the forecast for the weekend is low 20s and WET – possibly even thunder storms! and on Monday? back to hot and dry!  Here is hoping the weather man is wrong….I don’t mind the low 20s bit but rain and thunder storms certainly puts a dampener on camping lol!  still I guess on the up side if it is dry again on Monday at least we will be able to air/dry the tent!

Am keeping it simple food wise.  We have made and frozen sandwiches and will take them with us with the view to Saturdays lunch – hoping they will be defrosted but still nice and fresh then. We plan to spend the day just lounging in the park and enjoying the facilities. Sunday we are off to Sovereign Hill again. This time I remembered to PRINT my voucher and am about to put it in my handbag with the voucher for our photo at Red Hill Photography Studio.

Also on the good news front I have secured my $6 per square metre tiles and will pick them up Wednesday…and further good news I have found my missing camera battery charger phew!

So wish us a DRY weekend (well we don’t mind getting wet in the POOL).

Busy busy day!

Corey went to family daycare today so I could get stuff down around home…only I remembered Owen had a check up with his surgeon Prof Paddy Dewan – all is ok just  a regular 6 monthly review.

But by the time we did that half the day was gone and I was obsessed with tiles – spending too much time thinking about them so I went shopping. Found some that really are perfect and ordered them – will be in in 5-10 days.  Meanwhile I think I am going to go down from the 200mm square tiles to 150mm square as the mosaic border tiles will allow  for any size tile and I think I have found an awesome deal on the tiles saving me HEAPS – should be sorted by tomorrow at $6per square metre (instead of $20).

Camping on the weekend – of course hot as all hell right up to the weekend then we are expecting rain! hope we don’t get too much rain on the weekend!

am off to bed now b4 I fall over.

oh come now Just found this are realised it didn’t post….i’m still counting this as being posted yesterday – my list my rules so ner!
