I Survived My Wednesday

Only to have my Thursday push me around like a kid on a hurdy gurdy!
But Thursday is almost over and Friday is looking full but fun. Lucy and I head off on a little roadtrip to pick up Grandma (Dave’s Mum) who is in Launceston visiting her Dad. She is staying with us tomorrow night, yay.

So back to Wednesday…

Lucy had her first pre-kinder session. An hour and a half of fun kindergarten-y type stuff and the classroom was wall to wall 3-4 year olds and their parents. Lucy loved every second and did all the crafty (aka messy) activities. She decorated a paper hat, made a name tag and 3 paintings :)


When it was finished we dashed home, she gobbled down a banana before we jumped into the car again to take Poppy to the airport. He is having 2 weeks at my Brother’s place and Mum, my sister and her 2 little ones fly over too. So glad they are getting time together, I know Dad needed it and I am guessing Mum did too, and a change of scenery wouldn’t hurt the others :)

From the airport Lucy and I went to McDonalds for a late lunch before going to the Dr for Lucy’s immunization. We had talked about it and she had been fine up till when the poor fella went to bring the needles over. Then she wailed and screamed but once it was over was fine :) I had promised her a tiara so we dashed across the road and found one that came with some clip on earrings, she is dazzling in them lol


Today, Thursday, it has poured with rain all day. 100_5171

The ground is already saturated from all the rain we have had in the last three weeks so there are lots of puddles. The poor kids, and teachers, at school had a fire alarm go off, electrical work that tripped with the water, so all the school had to stand out on the oval for half an hour, right before lunchtime, in the pouring rain!

The last 2 weeks Megan has had swimming with school. All the grade 3 through to 5’s have to do it and Megan has done really well. Today was assessment day so Lucy and I went to watch.


As you can probably tell I am really feeling all the busy-ness and feeling a little flat about everything, unless it’s on the get-through-today list. After thinking about all of this I took 10 minutes out to put onto paper something I wanted to tell the girls. Sometimes you need to stop and play for no reason what so ever!


Some close ups


I used some Cherry Arte rub-ons that I had recently received from the lovely Viv


Also am excited to finally be able to share with you the creations I made for a Guest Spot at Scrapping Clearly. Kylie sells some amazing acrylic albums and she sent me the House album. As soon as I opened it and saw there were 4 pages I knew what I wanted to make, a name plate for each of the girls to hang above their bedroom doors. Each of them are different and I used different techniques for each of them too.










Jessica was the only one that had requirements, she asked of a Giraffe :)


Had lots of fun with this and glad I can now share it with you, go check out the site because there are some amazing work in the gallery to inspire you all :)

Have a great start to your weekend, back sometime :)

  3. waw, I really loves your little houses, great idea for my DDs too !

  4. Certainly very busy.

    Our Pre K is full day. The kids come at 7:30 with the other kiddos and and leave at 2:45 with them too.

    I wish I could see the photos, but I will have to remember to come back later.

    My oldest (12) had to get a chicken pox vaccine that she never got and she generally is nonplussed by shots, but that one brought some major tears to her eyes and she complained about a pain in her arm for 2 days. I wonder if a tiara would have made her feel better.

  5. Awwwwdorable postings ♥

  6. The girls must love the names for their rooms- they are gorgeous!

    Must be the constant rain. I reckon there is something refreshing about seeing the sun shine and being able to be outside...

  7. Hi Sharmaine, so glad Lucy did ok with her immunisations and she loved her first pre-kinder. My Lucy only gets 10 weeks of hers in 3rd term. I really like your girls door hangers you made they are gorgeous. Belinda
