Another quiet day. Spoke to my exlandlord on the phone and hes got picky about what he reckons he needs in the way of my bond $$. Hes going to have a fight on his hands. Rang the tenancy service people.

Sold a few things over Tradme.

After picked My Trier up and went and got some digi photos developed for a girl at My Triers school who has special needs but whom climbed the rock wall last week.

Tonight was the end of year concert and prize giving. My Triers class performed a instrumental piece. My Trier also received 3 certificates 🙂 He got a bit down in bed when he thought about leaving his friends behind to homeschool next year. Mr Wonderful talked to him after I had and reminded him hed always have his adoring little brother. Our Little Man had a big cuddle with My Trier and that cheered him up 🙂


Not as hot today as its raining.

Have you ever lived in a house where you actually got motivated to do housework???

I never have until now. I LOVE this house, its easy to clean and I find myself rejoicing over things like washing the floors on my hands and knees. And washing floors is what I had to do after My Little Man decided he wanted to play with the flour!!!



I wasnt impressed when he decided to get into the pantry and do this twice in one day and when he opened the fridge and christened it with milk

Brought some paper today to wrap trademe sells in.



Well at last Im in the Christmas Spirit. Thank goodness. I wondered whether it would in fact come.



Ive never really liked Christmas Trees and I saw Dees display a few weeks ago so I decided to decorate a shelf on my wall unit instead hopefully being up there My Little Man wont pull apart as I fear he may do with a Christmas Tree

This morning I brought My Little Man a sandpit (it is a large plastic clam shell) 14 years ago they use to have lids (they may still have but not where I got his Christmas pressie from) so I also brought a tarpaulin and some special ties so that it can have a cover. I now have to find a place that sells sand.

I am keeping my eye on a bike on Trademe (a New Zealand auction site) for My Trier.
I won Mr Wonderfuls present a while ago though a competition held though the blogs in America. Cant tell you what it is. Its a surprise and Mr Wonderful reads my blog.

Today is also the last day of school for My Trier. He only had to go till lunchtime and even then it was optional. His teacher and now a very good friend of mine exchanged Christmas presents and promised to stay in touch with one another. She has a similar background to me (solo mum) and wont be teaching at My Triers school next year. My Triery told her our plans for next year and she is interested to know how we go. She thinks its a good idea and agrees that My Trier responds better one to one.

Late this avo got the sand so thats Little Man sorted for Christmas 🙂

Got 4 bags of sand at a very reasonable prize at Mitre 10 Mega 🙂 HEAVY but worth it 🙂 Oh and My Trier got his little bro some sand toys for his Christmas Present to him 🙂

Mr Wonderful and I went and brought him a new computer this morning. Im excited cause im going to get his old one:)

Then we came home. I went and bought My Triers Christmas Present


Brought it home under a couple of sheets and sent My Trier into my bedroom while I put it into hiding.

Took both boys grocery shopping. Got Christmas dinner sorted out as well as the normal groceries.

Had an afternoon sleep. I was awake at 5 am this morning thinking about last night.

Tonight Mr Wonderful and I were cooked dinner by My Trier it was YUMMMMY!!!! Mr Wonderful told My Trier that it was almost as you get in a restaurant.



Billy Bake

Line a bakeware dish with cooked mashed potatoes that have been mashed with milk and salad dressing

on top of that place sliced pepper, cucumber and luncheon sausage

put on the rest of potato mixture

on top of that a layer of cooked mixed veges and luncheon sausage, cooked sausage, pepper, cucumber and thickly sliced cheese

place under grill until golden brown and serve.


A slow start to today and then Mr Wonderful had to work. While he was away I did what hes been saying he has to do and mowed the lawns. Its amazing how fast they are growing at the moment.

This avo My Trier had a dress rehearsal for the Christmas play at church tomorrow morning. While he did that I took my Little Man to the library. We were able to get a few books about Christmas, hes getting into this year. When I got back to church I was able to support a friend whose having a few hazzles.




Church did an excellent performance of the Christmas Story

In the avo we went to see Mr Wonderfuls parents and got Christmas presents Mr Wonderful and I got this and its yummy had a slice as Ive already organised Christmas dinner











  1. I’d have to keep a running, daily list to remember what I did every day in a week, Jen. Good job! And good luck with that landlord. I hate the way they nitpick you to death to try to keep your money when you move out.

    Merry Christmas. Thank you for tagging me in the previous post, but honestly, there’s no way I can get to it until after the holidays. I have no idea how you type in all those links. It would take me an hour!

    Hope you have a wonderful Christmas.
