Week In Review

Filed under: Home and Family,week in review — by my3boysandi @ 6:04 pm


A quiet day

I helped My Home Schooler make this

Mr Wonderful took Our Little Man with him on a job. My Home Schooler went and did his paper runs and I went for a ride on my bike for 1/2 an hour then took the washing off the line and blogged

Dropped My Home Schooler off at the movies then picked him again with Our Little Man whom thought the movie theatre was a cool place and he didnt even see any movies πŸ™‚


quiet morning

Dee came over and took My Home Schooler back to hers for a couple of hours

Went for another bike ride took some of the recycles to the recycling centre

Was home 10 minutes when My Home Schooler texted to say he needed my help. Off I tore but by the time I got there hed sorted out his problem.

I found this recipe the other day at my lovly friends Hays blog. Tonight i cooked it minus the cheese. The Little Man had eaten it for lunch πŸ™‚ And Plus some cooked mixed vegetables. Remember how I told you the other I was a meat and 3 vege cook. Well this makes a complete meal with a few frozen mixed veges thrown in.

Mr Wonderful took My Home Schooler scroll sawing. My Little Man and I watched Coronation Street on Tv and snacked out on pop pops (Our Little Mans word for popcorn)

This afternoon Our Little Man and I biked over to Dees. She gets me to download her photos from her camera. I took her camera back to her. Had a couple of coffees and showed her picnik which I enjoy using. Our Little Man played with her kids. They have some neat but inexpensive toys.
a very quiet day it was cold and rainy

Exploring whats down the plug hole


Paper run I zoomed around and then came home and cooked bacon and eggs for breakfast

cleaned my house

sorted out what songs we will have for playgroup music time next term

went shopping with My 3 boys πŸ™‚

did some prep for Monday and home schooling



finished sorting out music for playgroup on Tuesday

hung some washing on the clothes line – it was raining yesterday and I have SO MUCH!!! Thankfully today is a beautiful day for washing

spent the rest of the afternoon listening to music and singing – aint you pleased you couldnt hear me LOL



  1. As a matter of fact, I WANT to listen to Jen sing!:)

    Looks like you’re having a great week. I think I too, would like to explore the plug hole one day. I used to explore quite a bit as a kid but lost the curiosity as I grow older.

    God bless you and your boys!

  2. We’ve got that same towel lol – is it the barney bear one?
    it’s been raining constantly up here too, I got my dh to put up some lines for me in the carport when we first bought this house 5 years ago and they’ve been a godsend ever since πŸ™‚

    Humphrey Bear I think Amy. My Home Schooler use to think he was cool.
    I have been thinking about putting up some lines in the garage our next door neighbour does that. Still it doesnt rain for long here in the sunny Hawkes Bay.

  10. Those bike rides sound so wonderful!! I don’t feel safe in my neigborhood to do that, and I am ashamed that we haven’t even taught our boys to ride, but our street and all around have become too dangerous, people speed by etc.

    And that casserole looks delicious.

    i hope New Zealand NEVER gets like that I LOVE riding my bike and so does My Home Schooler and Our Little Man likes going for rides on the back of my bike
    It was delish you should try it πŸ™‚

  14. Jen, for some reason, I can’t comment on your most reason post. I keep getting a page that tells me there is an error, so I’ll comment here! Your little guy is definitely creative and looks like he is having a blast!
