Update ----- We're ready for my Mum to arrive!! It's nearly 4:30pm and she's going to be a half hour late. Which gives me time to get dinner going and do something with these very over-excited children!!!!

From the kitchens of friends said...

what a wonderful whirlwind of activity - I bet you feel great!
Glad your Mum's coming - hope the visit is full of joy, tlc, and sunshine for you all:)

I especially like the 'throw out insect remains' one-glad to see we're not the only ones! We even had a red-bellied black snake in a jar a few weeks back (yes, I found it dead, no Steve Irwin type exploits here!)

Sandra said...

Enjoy your visit with your mum!

Jessica said...

Thank you for stopping by my blog! I really appreciated your comment & look forward to reading about your family & your homeschooling adventures! :)

Hi Saminda, I'm Vicki, we've met a couple of times at the library on a Thursday (I was the one there during the infamous poo incident!) Kelly George (I know her through a forum) linked me to your blog cause I'm interested in Homeschooling, and she said you'd be a good person to talk to. I'd love to catch up, we normally go to the markets and library on Thursdays. My email is, but I'd prefer that didn't get public if that's ok. I've loved having a little read of your blog, you have such lucky kids!
