Project Life: Week 14/03-20/03



I am so glad you have stopped by my blog again. I hope you enjoy your time here!


MONDAY: Jamie had his last swimming lesson of the season today. The day started out quite wet and chilly and we nearly didn't go. I am glad we did, Jamie and Keira enjoyed the lesson. They really have progressed so well! (Photo by my friend Caran).


TUESDAY: My March/April issue of Creating Keepsakes arrived today. I LOVE it when my post box contains a mag or parcel slip. It's a lovely issue and of course it got me wanting to scrap. I have done quite a few layouts recently.


WEDNESDAY: It was Jamie's gala today. The group he swam in was quite bit, but he wasn't overwhelmed (which I was a bit worried about). He swam really well and even managed to win a race or two when he was doing the "on the back" races. Maybe he will take after his Mom.


THURSDAY: Look at the monster egg one of our chicks laid. It is absolutely huge and weighs 88g.


FRIDAY: We finally joined the land of the living and got ourselves a dish-washer. I am SO excited, because washing dishes is one of my worst chores!!! It still needs to be set up, so I have yet to use it. I will wait impatiently until Kevin comes and sets it up for us!!


SATURDAY: Ray and Brent took all the boys fishing today, and despite catching anything (they didn't have the right bait!), they had an absolute ball. I also enjoyed the quiet time at home by myself and did loads of knitting and watching World Cup cricket. The downside to the day was that we discovered a tick on Jamie when we bathed him. HOPE he doesn't get tick-bite fever!!


SUNDAY: We went out to lunch at the Golf Club and the food was absolutely delicious!!!!! It was a carvery which started with Butternut & Potato soup, a full Roast Lunch and Yoghurt Tart for dessert. Perfect!

Thanks so much for stopping by again today, I am so glad you did!! :)
