Yesterday our home went on the market officially.
If you want to have a look, go to :

It was exciting to see it ... and I'm very happy with all the photos they used too.

Our first Open Home is this Sunday, from 2 -2.45 pm.  Gawd... it's so exciting, but makes me nervous too.

It took so long for our last home to sell, I'm scared that will happen again.

But, we will just have to wait and see.  Everyone assures us it won't take that long, but I just don't want to get my hopes up.  I've been let down before.

Today Stew will get home from Hamilton, he's popping in here on his way back before heading into work.  I've missed him.  He had to attend a funeral yesterday afternoon, otherwise  he would have been home last night.

Griffin is off to a friend's home for the day, maybe even a sleep over too.  A day off his incessant yakking will be AMAZING.  That boy can talk till WE are blue in the face!  lol

I feel a bit sorry for the kids, it hasn't been much of a 'school holiday' for them really.  But, we've tried to give them some nice times in between all the work and trips to Hamilton.

They actually seem to enjoy looking at houses, which is nice.  They have to like whatever house we buy, it's gunna be their new home too.

We will be going back to Hamilton on Saturday to look at more too.

Today I've got a bit of 'regular' housework to do, then I might just try catching up on some friend's blogs!   It's been WEEKS since I read another blog!  Time... time... not enough of it!

Right, off to get some washing on...


Mid morning, there's a bang on the front door, then this little voice booms out "Grandma!  Open the door!" 
Awww it was so cute.  So, I spent quite some time clucking over the boys, getting lots of cuddles from Dante.  He misses us.
Stew called in on his way to work and so got to see the boys too, which was lovely.

I forgot to take photos!  Oh well, they will visit again I'm sure. *smiles*

I made everyone pancakes for lunch, nice and warm and filling.  Just what you need on a freezing winters day. 

After lunch Bex and the boys went home and I took Griffin to his friend Joshua's home for a sleep over.

So now it should be a nice, quiet afternoon.
I've not got around to blog reading, I just don't have any energy or inclination right now.  Still bone tired.

It didn't help that I thought Stew would be home FIRST THING this morning, so I woke at 6 and sat around waiting for him to arrive.  And of course, he didn't get here till around 11 am.  *sigh*

Never mind, it meant I was up in time to get the rubbish bins out.

Bex just sent me some photos of Archer in a little cardigan she crocheted:

ABOVE:  I couldn't decide which one to use... so ya get a few.  *smiles*
Isn't he just adorable!

Lovely to have my Stewie home again.  Geez I hope this commuting doesn't last too long.

End of Day:  a quiet day, freezing cold and torrential rain!  I hope it stops before our Open Home on Sunday.
