Lately

Two of us are studying. The mother is s-t-r-e-s-s-e-d out studying for one poxy three hour exam, and the 16 year old, who has 12 Cambridge exams over the next month - well he seems to be taking it all in his stride. I came home to a bedroom full of 16 year old boys one afternoon who were all intently studing a computer game... this cracked me up. They do need down time I suppose. The kid and his mates have gone off to Armageddon this afternoon - most certainly not his mother's scene!

I met with the new principal for a BIG meeting this week - I've a job next year. Some others I'm not sure will.... He will pay for a uni paper or two next year - yippee and school library conference is confirmed for next September in Christchurch too. The school is getting a good turn around.

So I was pleased with myself, and having the youngest at school camp, I went shopping - yikes...I adore Father Rabbit.
Some new little things - wooden clothes pegs,kitchen brush and a milk jug (youngest having hot milk before he goes to sleep now) and a gorgeous dress. Then a quick trip to Citta Design to buy a new duvet cover and sheets for the youngest's bed.
I could do my Christmas shopping alone in these two shops. (the list is very small this year... few are getting gifts...).
I am on a mission to save money and to buy less, but better quality and NZ made as much as I can.


And out new bedside tables arrived. We have gone from this (now in boy's bedrooms)... and keeping it real with the mess....
to this...



I have soooo much I am itching to do around the house.. gardening, painting, cleaning, sorting out, socks to finish knitting, letter writing.. 10 days to go and freedom for a wee bit until next uni summer paper arrives. And a MANIC term at school with a 36,000 book stocktake to undertake....


Happy days!
