The Simple Woman's Daybook, August 2nd

I know I only just did one, but I quite enjoyed it and want to do another... and well it's my blog, so I pretty much get to do whatever I want! Ah indulgence! lol

If anyone else wants to give it a shot, check out The Simple Woman's Daybook!

Outside my window... It is sunny again! With big white fluffy cotton wool clouds floating along.

I am thinking... I still haven't dug up the onions and garlic! I am a terrible gardener! At some point I will get organised!

I am thankful... for Courtney's extremely generous donation and blog post!! You are a star!

From the learning rooms... Wiyot's been enjoying using the blackboard, using it to draw pictures (very funny one the other day - Mommy with very long hair, and big boobies & Daddy had an angry face with a big frown >:( lol), write messages to me and also read one's I've left for him :D Also he's been building stuff with his lego, on sunday he built a Lego Starfighter that he got for his birthday, with help from Daddy... usually he does them by himself, I think Danny really wanted to play though :D Shoshone's been practicing her colours and is currently going round the house pointing out the colour of everything, especially PINK!

In the kitchen... My cup of tea is getting cold, the washing needs doing and I need to figure out what we are going to eat this week as we are over flowing with vegetables! 

*I must remember to cancel our veg box!*

I am wearing... Khaki combats and a kind of peach and cream stripy t-shirt.

I am creating... My donation page... just don't feel very creative today.

I am going... Nowhere! I should go to the library and the bank, but I really can't be bothered today!

I am wondering... When the rest of The Vampire Diaries, Season 2 will be on Virgin on demand... I noticed the first 6 episodes yesterday... and I admit, I had a late night marathon! 

*Yawns* It seemed like a good idea at the time!

I am reading... Still reading A Wizard of Earthsea. Took me a while to get into, but I'm quite enjoying it now.

I am hoping... Everything goes ok on Thursday, we're having our front door replaced! I always get very nervous when we are having work done on the house! Keep your fingers crossed for me!

I am looking forward to... Sunday and hopefully selling a load of stuff we have hoarded over the years! Although it will be the first time the kids have spent the night away from us... :'(  So I guess I should add, I am hoping the kids will be ok at their grandparents... and I'll be ok without them!!!

I am hearing... The kids playing together - Wiyots Lego figures are talking to Shoshone's little dollies :) Sooooo cute!

Around the house... I need to make some space, my grandparents are visiting tomorrow! :)

I am pondering... whether to go do some gardening... I REALLY should but... 

One of my favorite things... the joy on Wiyots face when he realises he CAN do something!

A few plans for the rest of the week: Sort out the car boot sale stuff, exchange and build the kids desk we got the other day (why does it seem you can rarely buy stuff these days without there being at least one problem?). Also head to the bank, library, shops.... etc!

Here is a picture for thought I am sharing...

Taken by Wiyot... I don't know why, but I really like it!


  1. Once again, You're very welcome :D

    And I like that photo at the bottom too! Check wiyot out, being the little photographer :) aww.

  2. Check Wiyot out!! The composition is pretty good for a little munchkin! The next Rankin maybe? :)

  3. I love your blog. It is super cute... I just started my blog and I found the Simple Women's Daybook and began with that. I'm hoping to meet some new people and possibly make some new friends.

    The picture your son took is awesome. It reminds me of when I was kid. I used to love the Etch-a-Sketch...although I never was really that good at it. =)

    I love taking pictures and it looks like your son is well on his way to being a photographer!
