Project Life: Week 21/02-27/02

NapTime MomTog Project 365

Thanks for visting me here again. I hope you enjoy your time here having a look into my life in Sunny South Africa!!

MONDAY: Bryce and Caide have each been playing a cricket game a week. Today Brycie played at the Oval so we were all able to watch. His wicket keeping skills are improving with each game!! Here he is getting embarrassed by his Mom!!

TUESDAY: Our first crop of tomatoes has started ripening. They are growing well and taste delicious!!

WEDNESDAY: I am busy with a scrappy quilt for the lounge. As things stand now we all fight over the one quilt. My aim is to make a couple before it starts getting too chilly!! I am LOVING this hobby :)

THURSDAY: Jamie with orange hands from eating Nick-Nack chips, Oumie and Granny would be horrified to see him lying on the couch with such filthy hands!!

FRIDAY: I had four of Caide's school mates come to the house after school to practise their Afrikaans oral. It is based in a restaurant and they all have to order food and have a conversation revolving around this scene. They all seemed to have had fun while they were here?!? Of course their was some play involved!

SATURDAY: Ray proved what an awesome husband he is today. He went through to Newcastle to do some shopping and took all 3 boys with him. This meant that I had the whole morning to myself and spent it blissfully sewing and drinking loads of tea. While he was there I asked him to maybe stop in at Bernina to buy me a bit of quilting fabric so I can start building up a bit of a stash. This is what he chose. I LOVE you so much babe!! xx

SUNDAY: Bryce is definitely my diligent child. Both boys had quite a lot of learning and task stuff to do today. Bryce was up bright and early so that he could get his things done. Here he is doing a self portrait for his "All About Me" section he is busy with. Caide got up later and procrastinated for as long as he could!

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

Rene, so glad that I "found" your blog once again... I've missed reading your PL posts!

Tomatoes! I'm *so* jealous! LOL! We are just beginning to think about spring here, so I'm living vicariously through you. Enjoy those fresh tomatoes, ok?

Your quilt is lovely and your husband has great fabric taste! What fun!

Have a fabulous week!
