What a Week

Wow, I can't believe that it has been over a week since I last posted. I spent the week getting ready for my DD Hayley to start Kindy. I had to make cot sheets for the little beds, I had to label everything with in an inch of its life. I didn't realise how many bits of clothing my daughter owns. My DH arrived home on Thursday night with much excitement from the children. They finally went to bed at 9.30.

Australia Day was spent quietly in the morning cleaning up and getting ready for friends to come around for a barbeque. We had a great night with the kids jumping on the bouncing castle and playing in the sandpit. It is good to relax and have a few drinks.

Went to Charli's 5th birthday party with Hayley and James on Saturday afternoon. DH was supposed to come with us but he was not feeling well so we went on our own. I made a card of a little girl on it and meant to take a photo but of course I forgot!!

Hayley started Kindy on Monday. She was very excited and was not in the least worried when we left. Daddy was there with the video camera to record every second. When we picked her up in the afternoon, she said she had had a great day and was keen to go back the next day. She was very grumpy and whingy and it wasn't long before she was asleep on my lap. On Tuesday it was off to kindy again. It is very quiet at home with just my DS James. He sleeps for at least 2 hours which gives me heaps of time to get things done.

I have also been making a little floor quilt for my friend Katrina's baby. It is made from lots of little bits of material in my cupboard. I machine stitched the whole quilt and was very excited at the finished result. I did hand stitch some detail onto some of the squares. This is my first quilt I have made that I am going to give away. I hope to go round to Katrina's next week and give it to her.
