I am not enjoying not blogging. My blog is my diary; I used to scrap book and now I blog. I am missing some epic stuff going on in the lives of children - I find myself thinking daily - I need to blog this moment...and then time slips away.
Hooli rides for the first time
I will be doing a photo show n tell post soon as I havent uploaded photees for ages.
Kirstenbosch, Sunday 6 March 2011 - thanks to Hooli
Bullets for now:
Week two of the Internet Marketing course - this week we are learning how to build our own sites. Great to have some creative mojo going.
The girls both have had haircuts - they look very oulik with their matching bobs. Saves us at least 20minutes every morning.
Honey's teacher is driving me friggin bananas. She is so disorganised and scatty. Worse than any of us moms. And she doesnt even have kids of her own! Thankfully she is a temp so the regular lass returns in the second term.
I received a text from the parent of one of Honey's friends today...in response to our invitation for a playdate. I quote her response
" Yes, that is fine but I will be busy so you must bring her home."
Seriously? If I didnt like the kid so much I would tell her off in no uncertain terms.
What they do. A lot. Draw and write and create.
Our rabbits had babies. And we only discovered this yesterday. The babies are about 3wks old and uber cute. Four of them; of course my kids want to keep them all. Highly unlikely but not impossible. I am non-commital at the moment.
I am training with Mr OMS again. Yes, tis true. He and I are simply meant to be. I have shopped around cos he ticked me off a while ago but truth be told he just knows how the get the best out of me. All the other trainers I have tried simply make me hate them. I want them to shut-up and go away.
Lulu has stopped violin. Little tyke just had too much going on. I knew this would happen but am glad she came to the realisation herself...she is still excelling with her tap and riding. That is plenty for now.
The kids are putting on A Midsummer Nights Dream later this year (at the school). Honey is overjoyed as she auditioned for the role of Puck .... and got it. Incredible, I could not be more surprised. Clearly I know not my own child but I am so thrilled for her. Lulu also secured a little part as some mischievous fairy whose name escapes me. :-)
I finally received my new phone...HTC Wildfire. After months of missioning I finally tweeted and HelloPeter-ed my dissatisfaction with Vodacom. The next day I had the phone in my hand. Twitter has its uses people.
I am becoming increasingly annoyed with the type of school projects my Grade 4 is receiving. I think it is totally ridiculous what these teachers expect the kids (actually the parents) to do. I wish tweeting my dissatisfaction would work in this instance but alas, I doubt any of them are on twitter. I think I will have to call a meeting and round up all the Moaning Mommies and make a stand. Good luck to me. :-/
