We are half way through 2014!

So glad to see the sunshine and know that a frosty morning means a beautiful day. Now we are past the shortest day- spring is getting closer! We enjoyed the trains on Sunday- the wind was so bitter and cold, was nice to get back in the car and not be in the wind.

Project Life 2014 Week Twenty-five

So glad I am keeping track of what happens in a week (I'm over a week behind in posting but I know where I am and what we did!)

It was an exciting week with Master B's 4th tooth finally (we have been waiting a while for this one) The tooth fairy came and now he's looking like a cute pirate.

Craft group had an awesome Op Shop day. I will be doing a blog post about this soon.

Mr B brought the boys roller blades- they just LOVE them! and thankfully broken bones yet (phew!)

The boys love looking through this album and when ever I ask for a contribution they are more than happy to when they get to use my nice pens.

Project Life 2014 Week Twenty-four

Leave a Comment
Week twenty-four already. This year is going so fast. Now to get winter to go faster.....

I got the blurry print from last week reprinted. So much better now.

I asked Master B and Master W if they would draw me something for the album. I ended up getting 2 pictures of the same thing. So very cute!

I am loving all the photos of our reality- 4 of us at the table all doing something different at the same time. Love that we can all be together in the afternoons.

I am trying to make sure I get a photo with each of the boys in the week. Loving Master B's serious look he's rocking.

I really like my new dishcloths. The chocolate may have already been devoured (yum).

 Thanks Kimberley for such a cool dishcloth swap!

dishcloth swap


I do love a good dishcloth swap. All our dishcloths we use are either knitted or crocheted. My swap Partner is Anne from Michigan, USA. As far as I know she doesn't have a blog.

I crocheted something I enjoy making that's simple and I like to use at home.

I have included EcoStore Soap (my favourite) and a nail brush and couldn't resist putting in a few New Zealand confectionery favourites for Anne. 

Happy Dishcloth Swap Anne!

a little bit of wonderful colour swap


The lovely Miriam has organised a little bit of wonderful colour swap. The person I got was Leonie. I was emailed a list of her likes and dislikes so that helped me decide what to send.

I may have had a wee blonde moment and didn't fully read the instructions (insert agh!! sounds)

So long story short (for my lack of instruction reading ability) I am sending a wonderful parcel that is basically the rainbow- that just happens to be individually wrapped up. 

I hope what I have sent brings a smile to Leonie as she has to unwrap many colourful items (it will be just like Christmas but we just happen to be in the depths of cold dark winter months)

Happy Swapping everyone. I will do another post once I know it has arrived. Don't want any peeking!

lego chess set has.....

1 comment
......stalled-  but is 95% complete. I may have forgotten to order 12 pieces- Opps! But good news I do really like this chess set.

I just can't finish the edge white (now I wait for another order of 12 1x4 white lego bits to arrive)

The boys were insistent on helping. They enjoyed building the base. I choose to make it smooth so each chess piece wouldn't break when you had to take it off the base plate. 

Now I need to figure out how to store this chess set. Feeling really organised for Mr B's birthday!

Even though I was unwell most of the week I still managed to get plenty of photos. 

I printed a blurry photo so I will need to reprint it.

This is my favourite photo of the week. All 3 of them can roll their tongue

I can not roll my tongue at all even if I try!

winter clothes swap

1 comment
The lovely Lauren hosted a clothes swap. The main idea is you bring along 5 items of clothing you no longer wear/ want to swap for free.

This was my pile of items no longer needed. A few tops, shorts, skirts, bracelets and scarves.

It was exciting to arrive and see 2 tables piled up with clothes.

The greatest part was finding clothing that fitted and that we would be happy to buy in a shop.  We had plenty of time to put items aside, try them on, show others and decide what we want.

Most of us went back through the piles again and were pleasantly surprised to find things we didn't see the first time.

I was so stoked to find a pair of boots, open toe shoes, a jacket, a tee shirt, 2 pairs of jeans and 2 dresses. Clothing swap win!!

So much fun with friends and it cost nothing for a super fun morning and of course who doesn't love the thrill of finding new clothes.
