Week in Review

Filed under: Uncategorized,week in review — by my3boysandi @ 1:50 pm


Feeling a bit better today. I must admit reading was interesting this morning during home schooling

after home schooling this afternoon I cleaned and vacuumed the house I dont like living in a mess

I also tidied my desk, reorganized the linen cupboard and watered the indoor plants

Mr Wonderful bless him cooked dinner



at lunchtime we took advantage of this giveaway

Love a free snack?
To celebrate the launch of our second new chicken range, tomorrow we’re giving away a delicious Chicken Tender to the first 100 people through our doors between 1 and 2pm and as you are a valued customer we’re telling you first! So if you’d like to try our tasty new Chicken Tender for lunch make sure you get down to your local McDonald’s® between 1 and 2pm Tuesday 6th May!

we got some vouchers from ZM for some more

after school I got the price of postage for some records My Home Schooler is selling on Trademe and went to the recycling centre to drop off our recycles

also hang some washing on the clothes line

today there was a home schooling trip I was blown away by how good it was
I had heard how good they were but had never seen them myself
They were great!!!!
Also one of the homeschooling mums whose recently had a baby boy awwwwwwwwww so adorable
Went grocery shopping tonight while my home schooler was at sea scouts
I do like going grocery shopping by myself

Had to go and see social welfare today and had to wait 45 minutes to see them. We had been booked in. It wasnt until I asked when we were going to be seen that we finally were.


cleaned the house this morning

this afternoon went to a home schooling resource sale

The Sonic game is what My Home Schooler brought to play with

I brought the thread beads in the containers for Our Little Man


Church was a lot of fun today we were celebrating our church ‘s birthday and it was pentacost

the service had a lot of youth group in put

we had a bubble machine which lots of enjoyed or at least liked watching the children enjoying it and there were balloons too

Its also Mothers Day and I was blessed

I got a “medal,” a purse, a pet rock and a gift bag from the youth group containing a bookmark(explaining what the gifts were all about, it also had proverbs 31:30 on it), a shell (to remind us to take time to appreciate creation), a tea light candle (to remind us to take time out for ourselves)and a lolly just because we are special 🙂

This week has been sad for me in a lot of ways

  5. Hi Jen,

    I’m dropping in to reassure you that I wasn’t at all offended by your latest comment. Just wanted you to know, Avery’s only ten weeks old and still isn’t physically able to actually bounce herself around in that bouncy seat. Setting her and the seat in the middle of my table is perfectly safe, at this point. There are rubber feet on the seat that make it stay firmly in place wherever I set it.

    The moment she seems strong enough to actually do anything other than just lay there quietly, I won’t be putting her in that seat unless it’s sitting on the floor.

    I’m probably more cautious than most people since it’s my nature to overdo just about everything, so trust me, Avery’s not going to be falling out of that bouncy seat. 🙂
