The Very First...

Today is:

♥ The very first day of school for my big boy.

♥ The very first day of uniforms.

♥ The very first day where we can't have the TV on in the morning because it will make us late.

♥ The very first day of getting up early, regularly, for a worthwhile reason.

♥ The very first day of making lunches every day.

♥ The very first day of living life to a schedule set by someone else.

♥ The very first day of not being the sole educator in his life.

♥ The very first day I will cry at seeing him leave, bag packed, ready to get on with life his life.

I love you with all my heart Robert! You are my BIG BOY now!

The promised pictures... and a few other things...

I haven't downloaded my camera for a while, so there is a few pictures of old to update you all with. First things first.

The Bug fell asleep while playing.

And then I won the Mother of the Year Award for letting the boys play with some pretend snow with their trains.

And then Aphid #1 tried on his Prep uniform! Goodness he is getting so big.

And finally, the recessed cupboard that the husband built today because now my hair is short I need to see the back of it. Does that qualify as a good sentence? I think not. Anywho, I like to see the back of my hair when I am doing it, and now that it's short, it is more crutial then ever. So we discussed using the mirror he did up when he made my birthday present sewing table. It has been in hiding since July as we had no where suitable to put such a pretty thing.

Now it looks like this!


Wonderful isn't it!

It's getting closer

Me and the Bug just toddled up to school to purchase the uniforms for Aphid #1. I can't believe he starts Prep next week - when did that happen?!

I've yet to convince him to try anything on, but rest assured that when I do I'll have my trusty camera to proove the event took place.

I got a haircut!

I'll let you in on a secret.

I suck at taking photo's of myself.

Here's the proof:

You can't tell, but it is really short at the back. I luff it so much! Now I just need to work out how to do it better. Stoooopid me washed it last night after the hairdresser did it all good like. So that is my attempt. 

 I'm going for this:

I need to work on the scruff some more, huh?

Now, what colour to make it???????

Sewing Day!

Today is our semi annual, monthly, quite regular sewing day! I love the bedlam that it represents. Getting together with all my besties, letting the children go crazy, lots of munching, chatting, sewing and general merriment.

I love it!

Incidentally, I've concluded that the collective term for a gathering of women should be:

Henceforth and hitherto, this shall be the proper term. Use it well dear ones.

I just wanted to share ♥

My favourite song right now:  (If I was all clever I'd get it to play here, but I am not, so follow the link!)

And just for fun...
(please don't play this one around kidlets - there is a bit of choice language in it, but it just cracks me up!)

♥ Enjoy! ♥

An update on the stolen *Couch to 5 km* exercise ... thing.

I have been faithfully going to the gym three times twice a week to jog on the tread mill. Last week I was able to do (fairly easily - although I was a stuffed goose at the end):

Brisk 5 minute warmup walk. Then alternate 60 seconds of jogging with 90 seconds of walking for a total of 20 minutes.
This week I am to do:
Brisk 5 minute warmup walk. Then alternate 90 seconds of jogging with 2 minutes of walking for a total of 20 minutes.

But in actuality, yesterday I did:
Brisk 2 minute warmup walk, followed by 2 minutes of jogging and 1 minute of walking for a total of 20 minutes.
I am so excited!! Now all I need  is to see some belly flub shifting and I'll be really stoked! I am going to try for that again today or tomorrow.

(I do realise that in reality this is a pretty ordinary effort... )
