Almost freedom

Today is the last day of school for my ferals. Tomorrow they head off to Perth for a fun filled week of annoying the grandferals.  YAHOO! Time to myself. I will miss them, but a week of no kids in the house, no one to yell at (except maybe the king) no picking up after any one will be my idea of BLISS i tell you BLISS.
This time every year my parents take my kids to Perth for the Royal Show and to see their cousins. And in the mean time i will be painting our house. It has been many years (7 to be exact) since our house was last painted and i do believe it is the perfect time to do it. I have chosen a pale smokey blue for the bedrooms and an off white/creamy pale beige for the rest of the house, so very soon i will be leaving to go to the hardware store to get all the necessary paraphernalia to get the job done. I am hoping to get the job finished by the weekend, so i can enjoy some me time in between then and the kids coming home. Wish me luck, who knows i may even get in some sewing time and finish off the laundry curtain. Ciao.

Long time no post.

It has been over another month since i last posted. Sorry bout that, can't say i have been busy stitching, creating or even productive in the kitchen. I have pretty much been sitting on my bum doing nothing. NO that is a lie, i have been doing a lot of reading. I Love and Covet historical romance novels, I know it is quite shameful to admit that but i have, and there's no getting around the point that it is my downfall. Unfortunately my life has taken a wee set back in the health stakes and i have just not been bothered to do anything except read. Although in saying that i have discovered a lovely blog called House of Smiths, but at the moment i would rather read than do, and to read what these wonderful people do on their blogs is really amazing and very creative and i just wish i had a smidgen of their creative talents. I have decided that this blog may be a little more about my life at home from now on too as i think the only people whom read this are my family, so things could be a bit boring for some, but you are welcome to pull up a chair, have a cuppa and listen to my ramblings, who knows it could get interesting, perhaps topics of interest could be discussed, opinions could be put forth and lively debates/discussions could be ventured into. If you have something you want to talk about let me know, and we'll take it a bit further.
But for now i must go and finish dinner before the ferals get restless and eat me alive. So until the sun shines brightly and wraps itself around your heart to warm you up and keep away the cold Ciao.
