Ahhh Friday. Usually a day I like as it means Stew will be home with me for two whole days.
But... not this week.
We have enjoyed the last 4 days, just the two of us. Today we will make the most of our last day before the weekend hits, with kids home from school.
OH ... it's a long weekend too... so those that work in this house don't have to go back to work till Tuesday.
Brylee's school has decided next Tuesday and Wednesday will be 'Teacher Only Days'. That means Brylee is home until next Thursday!
I have to wonder how many teachers will actually be WORKING (at school) on those extra days off from teaching? I think it's a wonderful way to get a 5 day 'weekend' myself.
Correct me if I'm wrong.
So, today's plans for Stew and I? Off to St Lukes mall, have a kid free wander, eye up a few things... just enjoy the day.
Now let me think... are there any fabric shops over that way??? I better check me map!
Bex bought some 'puffer fabric paint' from Spotlight a while ago. Yesterday she bought some socks for Dante and painted on them. Then she had to wait a few hours before applying heat from an iron to make them puff up:
It will be really difficult for anyone to get the names off using this stuff.
ABOVE: Our little man is still not 100%, snotty, grotty eyes, coughing and on/off miserable. Though, he IS getting better.
I'm not sure how Keera is, I forgot to ask Lacy last night. But she must be on the mend too or I'm POSITIVE I would have heard all about it!
Lacy always SHARES when Keera isn't well, or driving her nuts! *smiles*
I have not done ANY sewing this week, or read a single blog, and I even have two women's magazines to read that we bought on Monday! I simply have not had the time or energy.
I'm sure I will get back into the groove and catch up with everything/everyone next week.
Time to go....
***P.S. I worked in primary schools caring for special needs kids for 5 years before Brylee and Griffin came into our lives, so I have actually WORKED before.
Oh AND I taught pottery in schools too.
AND .... yeah nah, I will leave it there I think.
Stew and I are going out soon, so I won't be back for a while.
We are back... and I can report that we have had a really lovely morning. We had a slow wander around St Lukes mall.
Then we drove over to Mission Bay and had a nice lunch of pizza. We have brought the left overs home for the kid's afternoon tea.
Driving home on the Southern Motorway, we counted 12 police cars, lights flashing, sirens going heading north... all in a bunch! I wonder where they were all racing off to?
We just found out that all those Police were chasing 2 stolen cars, they stopped one in the Waikato, but the 2nd car continued up here into Auckland. The Police chased/followed the 2nd car into Auckland city, then back out to Manurewa, where they finally got the young person driving it. In all 7 young people were arrested by the sound of it.
I'm sure it will be on the news tonight.
End of Day: well it's been an uneventful Friday night. I got to watch my programmes on the telly in the lounge, and the guys got to watch rugby in the family room. Perfect night! lol
