Weekly Review

monday1thumbnailthumbnail1This morning My Home Schooler and I took 3 boxes of Our Little Mans old toys down to the Salvation Army shop.

Then we went shopping My Home Schooler wanted to buy Mr Wonderful a little something else for Christmas.  We also looked at few opshops.

Then we had lunch at Heavens Bakery. A bit expensive but nice.  I remembered being a little girl and my moghter taking my sister and I out to lunch after a morning of shopping.

This  afternoon I mowed half the lawn.  Mr Wonderful mowed the other half and My Home Schooler cooked dinner – yum 🙂


This morning Mr Wonderful took the boys out shopping.  My Home Schooler is getting a play station 2 from his grandfather.  His grandfather lives in Timaru, in the South Island of New Zealand.  While they were away I wrapped Mr Wonderful and my presents up for the boys.


This morning at about 9am I had visitors.  Im on holiday time so Id only been up an hour and was still in my nightie.  I quickly donned my dressing gown.  It was the pastor and his wife.  I got $20 petrol vouchers bless them.

My Home Schooler is sick (the flu) I think so he spent the day in bed.  This afternoon I did his paper run, went to the supermarket to get groceys and stocking fillers.  Gosh the supermarket was BUSY!!!

We dont usually fill stockings up instead saying everything is from Santa but after reading Kates On the Twenty Second Day of Christmas post and Hays post (especially the part about Santa her 4th point)  I decided too.

Just little bits and pieces will be in them.  However, then I will expect them to thank us for the rest.  And as I told Kate

I thought about that stocking thing yesterday this year My Home Schooler and I have been reading the Little House on the Prairie books. They were so content with what they got and it too was basic stuff. I think I may follow in yours and their style. Also means that it wont cost me a lot to do and I really have spent enough on stuff from me for the boys

A quiet day tired from yesterday.

Took My Home Schooler up the road to buy 2 PS2 games.  He got a PS2 from his grandfather 🙂  He wants to play some games with Mr Wonderful 🙂



today picked up some books I won on Trademe, had McDs for lunch, been grocery shopping, cleaned & vacumed the house.

After dinner spent some time outside reading.  If I can read one more book by the end of this year I will have read 52 books.  I dont know how many books I usually read in a year.  I think I have read more books this year since I am home schooling my eldest.  I am a slow reader always have been but I do LOVE reading.


church followed by getting rid of the recycles after lunch took the boys to the best playground in the Hawkes Bay and then for an icecream.

  8. I am so glad you had a good Christmas and how sweet of you to run the paper route!

    I just started reading The Hobbit, by JRR Tolkien. I never read it and I need to read how the LOTR began.

    I dont mind doing the papers now and again – he pays me for it:)

    neither have I 🙂

  10. One of my favorite Christmas shows to watch is Little House on the Prairie Christmas at Plum Creek. When Laura sells her pony, Bunny, to get her mom a stove… And then in the episode, where they share memories of past Christmases, and Laura remembers the Christmas when Mr. Edwards brings them each a tin cup, a peppermint stick and an orange and sweet potatoes for their mom…Really makes you think!
