The End of One Journey

In about 6 weeks time one of life's journeys will come to an end in our house.  My baby  (yes he is the youngest of my children) will finally leave primary school and  enter the next part of his educational journey. 

Today we were off to get his uniform for next year.  He was busy smiling broadly the whole and I was busy checking to make sure that the uniform was going be big and will  last many years while him being able to hold it up.

I am so excited for him and the opportunities that will come his way as the journey from Year 7 through to Year 13 begins next year.

Wordless Wednesday 29 October

Just a weed at the side of the road as I walked.

It really is not that red but I like how it looks just as I have tweaked it.

There is nothing like a leisurely afternoon.

Spring brings all kinds of challenges around the house.  We have the largest yard.  I used to take me about 4 hours to hand mow.  So we decided that it was a waste of time and energy spending time mowing lawns and what was needed was a ride on mower.  Since that time we have never looked back.

The only down fall is that every time we are out mowing my disabled son cant wait to help mow.  Hmmmm now, two days later I understand why I am suffering from stiff shoulders.  Hayden was constantly trying to help steer...the wrong way.

Fridays Fabuous Finds # 65

I am so looking forward to the weekend and time to sleep in.  Well just a little more than I can during the school week.

Here are my finds

  • Make your own fruit leathers

Have a great weekend.

October brings........

As always the holidays brings the arrival of spring and all the out door chores that come with the introduction of a little warmth to the weather.  You know the the house, washing the windows, staying on top of the fast growing lawn and the sad looking garden.

So when I am busy pulling those pesky weeds out, yes they are knee high after a winter of neglect, a smile is bought to my face when I see my boys out playing.  A spaceship with accompanying astronaut and  of course what spaceship would be complete without its mode of movement and navigation (the one having to pull the spaceship around.)

Now just to find an easier way to to keep the garden weeds at bay.

Summer brings...

Summer brings all those delightful smells of freshly cut grass, the appearance of the beautiful colours of summers, the sounds of new life and..........

                                                the exhausted me returning from walking the roads.   

  I cant wait to get fit and enjoy these moments of relaxation and start to live life full of energy.

Now not to contemplate why I let myself go so much but to look forward and start looking after myself.
