Weekly Review

Filed under: Uncategorized — by my3boysandi @ 6:27 pm



Today the boys and I went fishing. Unfortunity my memory stick ran out of space.  There was a lot of activity around the wharf – lots of boats going in and out.  We had a picnic lunch.  I had a go and got very excited when a caught several 🙂  I havent done much fishing ever

After helping My Home Schooler with his paper run.  Then we went to Dees havent seen her in ages.  Gave her our fish for her cat 🙂  Good afternoon – good day.


this year I have read 52 books – this is the most books I think I have ever read in a year.  I intend to read another book by the aurthor I have just finished today.  He is Bernard Beckett (a NZer) and I really enjoyed Home Boys 🙂

Used some of my lettuce and silverbeet today 🙂  Pretty good going for someone without a greem thumb.  Next year 2009 🙂 we are going to have a vege garden 🙂  This is just a start



picnic and fishing in the morning I forgot my camera – caught some bigger fish today – bigger than the other day

in the afternoon after Our Little Man had had a nap and we had dropped off Mr Wonderful the boys and I went to a nearby park


This morning My Home Schooler went grocery shopping.  He got stung by a wasp – once – on the neck.  I rushed into a nearby cafe and asked for ice. They gave us a sizeable chuck then because it was really painful I rushed into the supermarket and brought a cheap drink and a box of pandol (we needed more anyway).  Soon he was feeling well enough to go shopping with me.


I did his paper run today and will be for the next few days.  I get paid for it:)  I forgot my shoes and oh boy was the ground hot!!!

Took My Home Schooler to the airport hes going to the South Island to stay for his annual holiday

As we were waiting for his plance to take off Our Little Man said “Bye bye B (he often calls him that) see you later” (quite a lot to say I thought)

Had an awful headache tonight – heat, sinsus ???


woke up at 5 had breakie and did the paperrun at 6

A cooler day much easier to take

quiet day at home


woke up sad but then decided to turn to God which was good 🙂

he can fulfill all my needs 🙂

church one of the elders is in hospital with heart problems they prayed for his wife and him.   I ended up crying (i dont think I was the only one)

This afternoon took Our Little man to the best park in the Hawkes Park

and had an icecream too

He really liked the blue slide it was fast, he played on it loads of times.  We stayed most of the afternoon.


  1. Now I want to go fishing! 😉

    I think you’d really enjoy a garden, Jen. Not just the fresh veggies, but the actual work and watching the plants grow.

    Have a great Sunday and new week, my friend.

    Love and hugs,


    thanks Diane 🙂

  10. I haven’t been fishing in ages. I used to love going with my dad. It’s so weird to think of it being warm there when it is cold here!
