Week in Review

Filed under: Home and Family,week in review — by my3boysandi @ 6:19 am


Let my fingers do the walking and phoned up several glaziers for quotes on the old house.

Mr Wonderful and I went to an appointment and then I unpacked some more boxes and sorted out My Little Mans toys. He has an awful lot!!!

Fell asleep in front of TV at 7pm. Mr Wonderful looked after the boys. Then I woke up again at 9 when they all went to bed. Washed My Little Mans bottles. Blogged for a while.


A Hot day in the Bay

My Little Man likes going for rides in the car after we took My Trier to school he helped me put a load of washing on. He got his little deck chair and stood on and helped me load the washing machine and took delight in lifting the lid on the machine as the water was going in. Then he took even more delight ion hiding a sock I was going to hang on the clothes line. He is still mostly honest though, telling me where he had put it. Yesterday he did lie to me though. He had been playing with the TV rabbit ears aerial and when I asked him if he had he replied no. Shortly after I caught him the act. Rascal!!

Today was spent doing the usual around here at the mo – unpacking more boxes.

Also went to the recycling centre after I picked My Trier up from school

Found this swing in amongest the boxes

I celebrated this avo as Ive finished unpacking



apart from homeschooling resource boxes and they can wait a day or two

housework followed by a visit from a good friend from church and her little boy. She gave me 2 packets of nappies as her son is potty trained wtg. And some clothes the boys enjoyed playing together.

quiet afternoon

My Little Man has his desk and chair in our office this is how we found him the other day. I guess his work all got a little too much LOL


This avo had a lawn mowing man come around to give us a quote. While there is a lawn mower here it is near impossible to start. We were so impressed with him we went with him. After getting the washing in gathered the toys together in preparation for when he comes around on Friday. Im sure My Little Man will for one will be fascinated in him – he likes watching the one at playgroup.



Woke up several times in the night My Little Man was running a high temperature and vomit. AT 2am I went to an after hours service statio, got some petrol and a bottle of milk. My Little Man seems to be drinking a lot recently.

Helped My Triers class with their BIG DAY OUT

In the morning they went to Kiwi Adventure Company

In the afternoon they went to Pandora’s Pond

It was a great day out

By the end of the day My Little Man seemed a lot better he is on antibiotics

Another trip day for My Trier

this time to thank him and the rest of the school road patrols. This is an organized by the police and is held for all the patrollers in our city. There was a prize giving that the Mayoress attended. Lunch for the kids was a bbq and a drink provided with thanks from the police.

After school My Trier and I went grocery shopping



Woke up this morning at 5am My Little Man was crying for a milk but when I offered him the only we have presently with a teat he refused it. Hes a bit picky about his bottles. Him actually sleeping through the night and refusing a bottle is actually a good thing. He usually wakes up once or twice a night for a bottle (when we have the bottles with his preferred teats which we have mislaided) I think its formed into a habit which would be nice if it was broken. Im sure he doesnt need to drink during the night.

Couldnt go back to sleep so unscrewed the remaining arm off my computer chair in preparation for my garage sale today. Blogged and looked at my emails for an hour then got organized for my morning.

Went around the near by streets and put these signs up I have deleted our address and my signs had streamers on them


My garage sale


Which we moved outside once we knew it was going to stay fine today


My 2 “helpers” they were eventually both sent inside as they were too helpful!!


While it was an ok garage sale it wasnt as successful as my last ones have been

At lunchtime Mr Wonderful’s parents came over. Mum had had scones for lunch and Dad gave us a lawn mower he was given (the owner thought it was broken, dad had a quick look at it and theres nothing wrong with it)

After the lawns were mowed and we had enjoyed a nice lunch with them I cataloged what I had left and put the photos on the computer in order to put them on Trademe in the next day or so.

In the late avo and during the evening we went to Christmas in the Park

My Trier and I helped sell candles for the carols. We were kept BUSY!!!! and we were appreciated.

At the end of the evening we went back to church to help one of the other ladies unload her car of tables upon which we had sold the candles.











After lunch we went back to church, our victor has recently come back from a trip over to the Holy land. She showed us photos and gave a very interesting talk. Followed by a very yummy afternoon tea.

In the evening we went back to church again for dinner with the youth group. We played game, got lollies and had tacos, potato swirls on kebab sticks and banana splits. It was a good evening. The victor came which was nice

  5. Jen, I’m sure you already know this as Muzz has diabetes, but your little man drinking a lot can be a sign of diabetes. Have you ever checked his blood sugar as a precaution? Just a thought and it could be a life saver, literally.

    Have a good week and Merry Christmas! πŸ˜‰

    Love and hugs
