Koala went to school this week for the first time! She attended for work experience. We now have a picture of her first day in Kindergarten;)
Einstein was highly amused yesterday after taking a phone call from our local library. We regularly reserve books online, we reserve so many we have our own basket under the counter with our name taped to the cubbyhole. Yesterday they begged us to go in as the basket was overflowing and we now had a trolley!
My dear friend has long stored borrowed library books in a central basket in her loungeroom. She has been encouraging me for years to do the same. I really do not know why I resisted, but I am now a convert! Our library box in the loungeroom has a high ‘borrowing’ turnover.
Most of the books we borrow from the library are for the older children as our library is lighter on teen material. Princess recently asked me to reserve books for her, I was rather reluctant as we have many wonderful ‘friends’ just waiting for her to meet in our own library. So why hadn’t she ‘met’ them? Upon reflection I realised the many shelves may overwhelm her. My solution? I’ve set a box with a selection of treasures for her to browse through and ‘borrow.’ She is very happy and particularly likes the label “Princess’ Books’.
Remember the rain gutters? PC has priced them and found they’re rather expensive. I’m searching for ideas of other ways to display picture books. Suggestions?
We were driving past our local pub one evening recently, and saw a horse and rider on the verandah chatting to the patrons. A great discussion ensued as to whether the rider could be arrested if he was over the limit.
Carpenter has been helping me move all my files from my computer to his. My computer has a death rattle and I’m rather concerned one day it will gasp its last. I have no intention of being caught unawares, I feel I can breath a little easier now.
