Week in Review

Filed under: week in review — by my3boysandi @ 5:19 pm


Today I concentrated on home schooling and washing and drying clothes

Its rained for days and I was behind in the washing

Its been a fine and windy day today and I have caught up a lot

hopefully this weather will last a few more days


At playgroup today I did the activity with the children

to see what we made look here

Then I read a story about weather and lead the children in singing

My Home Schooler did the morning tea

This afternoon we went for a walk
My Home schooler and I also sorted some stuff I had in the garage. I was going to sell it on Trademe but its not really selling so we packed up the car so we could donate the stuff (clothes, pots, books etc) to church. They are having a garage sale again soon.
Took the stuff to church
home schooled
then this afternoon we did some woodwork
and of course Our Little Man did some woodwork too

After swimming this afternoon My Home Schooler and I went grocery shopping I prefer to go on my own but it was ok

I was tired after that but i still had to take My Home Schooler to youth group

thanks must go to Mr Wonderful who took Our Little Man out with him today so much easier to home school with out a toddler (bless his heart) around


Cleaned my house and washed clothes this morning

didnt have to vacuum – my home schooler and i have made a bargain that he will do it for $NZ2 a week. He also does all the dishes washing drying and putting away for $NZ10 a week. He wants a paper run too.

This afternoon we went to see the Story Teller. We saw him a long time ago when we were in Auckland.

We saw looked at an aquarium at the garden centre where he was

Then we went to the library.


Woke up really early this morning. I actually dozed from about 2 am onwards. Last night Mr Wonderful said that we were going a boat this morning at 6am so had to be awake at 5am. I wasnt keen on the idea last night. But as I was at 5 I woke Mr Wonderful up. LOL. No boat ride but I got him!!! LOL

Then I blogged for some time. Then went and had a nice hot soak in the bath. Boy!!! it was cold this morning. The bath was lovely though. I read 2 chapters of the book I started last night. Then had a good old bath.

My first present was from My Home Schooler

Then Mr Wonderfuls dad rang me up bless him and asked it I was 26? I laughed and thanked him and told him I like being in my 30’s.

Then I was blind folded by Home Schooler and taken into the kitchen for a beautiful breakfast from them both and I got muscles too yum!!!

Eventually Our Little Man woke up. He gave me a bag of lollies

Dont really need the lollies but your only 38 once

I had a nice relaxing day and had some visitors this afternoon

  5. Sounds like you had a lovely birthday Jen! It seems to me it is getting harder to sell used stuff, maybe because so many of us have used stuff to sell…there’s a glut! I enjoyed looking at the crafts you all have been working on.

  9. Happy Birthday. It was sweet of your family to make you breakfast. I noticed in the photos that you had beans with your breakfast. That is something that I’ve never tried for breakfast. My kids usually have cold cereal (from a box) or they make themselves oatmeal. I like peanut butter on toast and 2 cups of coffee. If we have eggs, bacon, or pancakes, I will make them for supper.
