Week in Review

Filed under: Home and Family,National Blog Posting Month,week in review — by my3boysandi @ 6:03 am





went over to a courier company to get prices for my stuff that sold on Trademe

Packed some more boxes

Had some people come and get the stuff they brought off Trademe from me

This afternoon I was jumping up and down . . . nearly and was very excited I put this on trademe and it exceeded all my expections on how much it would make. Mr Wonderful and I watched it together excitedly go under the hammer


God is very good Ive been worried and praying to God about the $$

He provides



posted some parcels

set up next door neighbor up with an account on Trademe over a cuppa of coffee

after school sat in the sun and waited for the man to come and pick up the screen door

Took My Trier to his lesson

Tried to get some petrol and the petrol pump wouldnt read my eftpos card

Went to another service station and asked if they could do the transation first which they wouldnt

picked up My Trier

tried again at the first place eventually worked

popped home to ask my wonderful next door neighbor to look after one of the trades I was doing the lady was due to pick the cups she brought

took My Trier to school

what a busy morning already and a pain about the petrol but at least I finally got it

hit a slump this avo didnt want to do anymore packing

missed the deadline for advertising for the last garage sale but decided it was ok

after getting a bit sad about the slump decided on a plan for tomorrow which helped my mood greatly

after school went grocery shopping

My Trier didnt go to school today he couldnt go to sleep until very late last night
I went and signed our rental agreement and posted another parcel

Home again

Packed up car

Left My Little Man and My Trier with my wonderful next door neighbour

took clothes including baby clothes, and a few more bits and pieces to the sheild.gifstore

Mid avo I went over to Mr Wonderfuls

My Little Man fell asleep early tonight he didnt get a nap today and I fell asleep watching TV

I could sleep for a week

Im tired but this shall be all worth it very soon

Went and did a house inspection with my new landlady

I saw my kitchen again

My Trier fell off his chair and landed on the kitchen/dining room floor

so she gave him 3 lollies

After lunch I moved the rest of the stuff that was too big to go into the car yesterday over to my next door neighbours where they will be stored until the salvation army can come and pick it up

This was HOT work I got a headache

restful afternoon after that getting over it

played this

In the late afternoon I hang some washing out

I woke up at 1130 knowing Id put my neck out earlier in the day when I do this I end up with a massive headache and before or while this occurs I get moody

I got up and took 2 pain killers and went back to bed

Thankfully today my neck is better

Mowed the 3/4 of the lawns

The mower gave up the ghost again

I think it needs oil shall ask Mr Wonderful if he has some tomorrow when he comes over

Mowing the lawns was actually a very yukky experience while Im doing them because I want my bond back there really isnt that much grass its mostly dirt and the dirt went everywhere and reminded me of one of first jobs when I worked in a plant nursery one would fill plant bags with soil and the soil would end up everywhere up ones nose and in ones mouth so all you could taste was dirt this was much the case today with the lawns as My Little Man would say “uck”!!!

Still at least I can leave knowing the lawns are done a far cry from when I first moved in and the grass was knee high and a fire risk

Had morning tea with my wonderful next door neighbor she is going to keep an eye on my mail when I move out

there use to be a time when one could simply go into the post office and fill out a form and the post office would take care of it

These days one has to pay for the service and I cant afford it

Did some packing this avo My Trier has taped the remaining boxes together so this helps a bit

Bless him

Hes a real trooper and an energizer bunny

He goes and goes and goes

He helped me pack this avo

and he was still rearing to go when I was hot and tired must be that ADHD

still we quite a bit done

I would have packed some more after dinner only we ran out of boxes again

Instead I had a quiet evening alone

My Little Man didnt get an afternoon sleep today so he was in bed by 5.30pm and slept right through apart from a bottle when I went to bed

My Trier slept over at the next door neighbors apparently they had a GREAT time

I will be staying in touch with my wonderful next door neighbors – they are probably the best neighbors Ive ever had

I should come up with nicknames for them in case I chat about them after I leave

From here on in they shall be known as Dee,James, Emilio, Rebeca its much nicer than saying my ex-wonderful next door neighbors isnt it???


church it was my turn to look after the preschoolers

we also had a church lunch which Id forgotten all about

Mr Wonderful came over this afternoon we packed boxes did some maintance on the house

then we spent about an hour lazying around together as a family

it was nice lying in the sun even if it was a bit hot

After dinner I had to go and post a parcel in the post box on our road although we took the pushchair My Little Man walked all the way there and back (1.5 kms). He was determined to do it. I asked him several times if he wanted to go in the pushchair but no he wanted to be a big boy and walk. There were cheers and claps when he got home.

  5. Isn’t trade me wonderful for getting rid of unwanted stuff? People like me just go and buy it all lol

  6. Sounds like a productive week. One thing about it, you have to sort through things before you move so it’s an opportunity to get rid of some unwanted and unneeded stuff. Might as well make some money on it, right?

    Only 5 more days, Jen! Can’t wait to see pictures of your new place…

    Love and hugs,

  8. we moved after 21 years in the one place. It was the most stressful thing I have ever experienced I reckon. I was exhausted for ages but it was so worth it. God does provide and will direct things and this will be a good move for you all. I’m looking forward to all the news of the new home.

  9. What a busy week. Moving is always lots of work. Hubby and I always joke that if anyone ever invented some sort of appliance where we could plug into the kids while they sleep and transfer some of their energy to ourselves, well, then that person would become mighty rich. :vD
