School Holiday are always a challenge, when it come to finding any time to create, (or blog). The kids monopolise my time, which is as it should be. Speaking of Monopoly, that there is Rory’s real estate empire, 3 hotels on the greens, through which he bled me dry to win the game. Over $1,000 for rent per visit is just too much.
At least I could feel good about the afternoon of knitting that accompanied the game.
We have kept pretty busy with activities like visiting the Circus, the Movies, the Optometrist, two boring specialist appointments (extra degrees of difficulty with three kids in tow to keep occupied) and several friends birthday parties.
On a visit to the country to stay with my in-laws, I managed to bind a Queen sized Quilt, while watching several hours of country footy, parked on the boundary.
This trip also featured lots of playing with cousins, (and lots of giggling after lights-out)
as well as lots of playing with cousin’s puppies.
Back in Melbourne there has been quite a bit of leaning to sew, (learning to teach too) which has been lovely. Amelia and her “Besty” are making aprons, both featuring Watermelons on the pockets.
Now that the holidays are at a close, it is safe to say that I am looking forward to a little bit of peace and quiet, but I will miss spending all morning at home, wandering around with the kids and I all in our pyjamas.
