Today starts a 2 week holiday 🙂
I invite you to click on the picture above
if you put your mouse on the video there is a bit of a story. In the last week of the school term we walked this part and back again http://www.hastingsdc.govt.nz/activehb/walks/rotary_eit.pdf. Today we walked as far as the Chesterhope Bridge and back http://www.hastingsdc.govt.nz/activehb/walks/rotary_hohepa.pdf. Next week we do the last bit. It doesnt look long but we shall see.
a quiet day
I entered a lot of these As Ive said before gotta be in to win 🙂
Took Our Home Schooler to the dentist to get a tooth pulled. Iit had an abscess on it. Anaesthetic doesnt seem to help my poor boy. He was in a lot of pain. He was very upset.
As I was in there I got attack of the guilts. Why do we allow our children to undergo pain? Sure he said it was sore on Saturday and needed pain killer. But he hadnt said anything since. Yet I made him go to the dentist. I keep telling myself it would have gotten bad again but I have a strong voice telling me how mean I am.
At the time of writing this he is ok again. Mr Wonderful is wonderful and helped look after him.
This morning My home schooler and I got up at the crack of dawn and went to take part in the Sea scouts parade for ANZAC day. It sure is getting colder. It was fine though so that was good. Afterwards we went to the Returned Services Association and had a coffee with a nip of rum in it – yum!!! and a bite to eat. While the service was taking part I thought of my grandfather on my mothers side. He fought in WW2. My other grandfather on my fathers side was a farmer so he didnt have to go to war. My maternal grandfather died when I was about 10. I kinda remember him. He seemed like a nice man to me. I remember before he died he was living in this little house (only a couple of rooms which at the time seemed very strange to me) on a piece of farm land. He had a bad limp probably a war accident.
Vacuumed the house and sorted though My Home Schoolers clothes to see what still fits and what doesnt
was suppose to get 2 new tyres for my car today but the guy said it would take an hour and a half so we rebooked for Monday
This afternoon My Home Schoolers friend (Colin) came over for a sleep over. We watched this movie tonight.
Last night Our Little Man cried and cried he was so sad he wanted to sleep in Our Home Schoolers room with the big boys. He is besotted with Colin. Eventually he fell asleep.
You know how I said “you have to be in to win” on Tuesday

This morning the boys woke at 6am!!! I am going to get breakfast in bed. Colin’s idea – what a sweet kid. I told them they could watch a dvd until a bit later though LOL
