365 Project: 1-7 April

So I don’t appear to be great at this whole keeping-up-with-the-blog thing. It’s mainly 365 project posts with a few bits and pieces throw in there. Sorry about that. But then again I’m not sorry that I’m posting things that I think are more worthwhile and interesting than a bunch of utter crap.

Day 86: Using the extendable lead was definitely a highlight of Lucy's sleepover for her.

Day 80: A grade 4 student made a really nice wishlist (she didn't seem to care that it's no where near Christmas). Sometimes  it's just nice to see a finished activity after putting away or recycling so many half finished activities

Sometimes it’s the little things in life that make you smile.

Like having my parents dog over for a sleepover and having her climb under the doona halfway through the night.IMG_1509

Like finally having someone cut the bolt connecting the doors to the cupboard under the sink at work.IMG_1469

Like seeing shortie undies with a cute cat print.IMG_1468

Like having a giggle because the 1 litre bottles of Coke are all skinny and funny looking.IMG_1490
