we tricked 'em...hehe

4 December 2006

Sunday ... week two ...cleaning day ... we were smarter than them this time...we didnt breathe a word ...until they crawled out of bed rubbing their eyes.... we even waited until they had the usual argument over the cartoon pages in the 'Sunday Mail' ....and who was getting the last crumpet..... when their little bellies were full and we had giggled at the cartoons .....we made the announcement "Today is family cleaning day!" I wish Id captured their faces.....priceless ... puppy dog eye kind of faces ( I should add...these were not happy puppies)...lol

It was the most productive cleaning day in ages..... the only room untouched was Brents ... somehow that child has inbuilt warning ...he never showed at all.

Well..... just quickly since Sunday ...

*we went to my work christmas show....nice night...pity I was working and couldnt have a single drink ...where is the cheer in that....sob sob ...so I made up for it in Pavalova ...slurp!

* Ive helped Mitch prepare for his Year 10 exhibition ...his display and research is on World War II ..... I had some wonderful photos taken off today taken during the war by my Grandfather.
The saddest part is that we will miss his exhibition ...it is being held tomorrow night and we will be at Robbie. I have decided to take him over in the morning though...help him set it up, take some photos and wish him luck...Brent will take Briony over later that night and bring him home.

...finally a photo of Mitch during Diaorama production....painting the barb wire fences......I wouldnt say it was the highlight of his year.... thats not exactly a happy face.(and no it wasnt taken Sunday after the 'cleaning' announcement)

*Ive had guests for dinner tonight ....we spent the evening sitting around the pool .....bbq ....drinks....and planning for Robbie Williams tomorrow night. The plan is we leave tomorrow lunch time....queue up and see Robbie.....stay overnight ...SHOP ....then come home the following evening.

*We have Carly (our niece) staying for the week .... another teenager to add to the mix ...Carly is doing work experiance in Barmera...so its lovely to have her to stay.

* Ive finally nagged Brent into a haircut.....even though I had to pay for it!...... I made the appointment for him ....and then as he was about to leave he asked for money to pay for it...I explained that he is working now...so therefore he should pay... his reply..."well you wanted my hair cut...I didnt"....Grrrr.

*Ive finally finished a layout Im happy with ... lol...it was worth a mention.

*Kims online class commenced this morning...for anyone involed Im sure they would agree its very exciting....

*ohh...and we put up the christmas lights ...christmas tree.....and the entire three other decorations I own ...time to upgrade...add or revamp......Id love to take Janes christmas wreath class ...its gorgeous.....pity I live nowhere near her....

Until after Robbie .... mwah....Mardi x
