Week in Review

Filed under: Home and Family,My Thoughts,week in review — by my3boysandi @ 12:45 pm


31°ico-fine.jpg again!!!

Houseworked in the morning

went to the chemist in the avo (afternoon) to pick up my happy sane antidepressant pills

it was so HOT that while the boys played in their paddling pools Mr Wonderful and I sat on deck chairs in the cool shady breeze and watched them – the water was too cold for us but the boys loved it


This morning took the boys to the library. Where a magician was entertaining. From an early age I tell my children that there is no such thing as magic but some people do tricks. My Triers Granddad is a magician in Timaru. He is teaching and giving My Trier equipment so he can do tricks too. My Trier is quite good at some tricks. Anyway this is what we saw today

After lunch and between showers took My Little Man for a walk in the pushchair and My Trier went on his bike 30 minutes


My Trier said that Zappo worked diferently to his granddad in that he had a theme to his tricks. The library is doing a sumer reading programme based on rockets.

Funny the things Mummies and Daddies get excited about isnt it – today our Little Man did number 2’s on the potty for the first time. No number ones yet but he is tryng

As I was preparing the veges for dinner this avo cut my thumb after trying to cut a HUGE pumpkin

skip this photo if your screamish


The boys and I took the recycles to the centre

In the late afternoon we took our Little Man to the doctors he has mosquito bites and has a bit of a local bad reaction but hes ok.

Had a late dinner (which worried me re Mr Wonderful being a diabetic)



Went to the library to get another book nearly finished the one Im reading

After dinner went for 32 minutes bike ride then came home sat in My Triers paddling pool with my feet up for a little while then had a nice warm shower – ahhhh bless the best thing about bike riding is the shower after it



Got my bike today 🙂




and went for a 43 minute ride today

Got the homeschooling exemption finished and posted yaye

I feel ready to home school already

Praying it wont take them long


went to the library couldnt get into the last book i was trying to read

had an afternoon sleep when i woke up this is what I had found My Trier had done


hed washed the floor too



followed by a coffee at Dees and took some photos of the old house to take to the tribunal

  13. You look so cute on your bike. Well done, getting some exercise in for the whole family. It’s fun to see how people spend their weeks. Re: your “what do homeschool folks do” question on the above post–I’ll think about it and email a response. Blessings for your poor thumb. 😦

  14. Wow a 43 minute bike ride! I love your new bike, and all the pictures! Wish we could ride together, I’ve got a Schwinn out in the shed, I could dust it off…come on summer weather…we’ve had snow and mud here since mid-December! Not complaining about the snow part, only the mud…lol!

    What a good guy, that son! Doesn’t that just warm your heart, it does mine!

    Have a great day, Jen!
