Today when I set out for town it was cold enough to pull on my suede, mid calf length, winter boots. I automatically tucked my pants into the boots and then realised it was such an 80s look. Is it still ‘in’ to tuck pants (not jeans) into boots? Somehow it didn’t look ‘right’.
Though ‘late to the game’ of ‘discovering’ text messages, I’m now a fan. It really is an easy way of communicating. Quick, simple, short bursts of communication. I’m enjoying it so much I’ve even changed my phone plan to unlimited text.
I heard this week that Masters (Home Improvement) plan on building a warehouse in every town that has a Bunnings! In a nearby city they are currently building a Masters next door to Bunnings! This seems rather unethical to me, certainly not good sportsmanship.
I really, really prefer to be able to read blogs in my blog reader (feedly), truth is if I can’t read a blog in my blog reader I won’t read it. This week I discovered some lovely large family (larger than ours) homeschooling blogs. I excitedly added them to my blog reader, only to delete several of them a week later because I couldn’t read them in full on my reader. I respectfully request that you consider changing your settings to allow complete posts in blog readers and then I can add you reading list.
Books in our home library are continuing to multiply, the piles of books are growing tentacles, I need to wrestle the situation under control but I’m actually finding the task too daunting to begin. My biggest ‘stumbling blocks’ are the picture books, they need culling but …. I really wish I had book bins to sort them into, then I’d sort with ease. I’m also fantasising about knocking out the wall between the library and learning room, opening the space up for a better flow through. PC isn’t so keen at this stage (his mind is focused on tiling bathrooms) but I’m certain the children will love pulling down walls. Only one of the walls is load bearing, mmm problem that.
When we were engaged we received many, many gifts for which we were very grateful. Some we loved, some not so much, and some
weI really disliked, however we were grateful and used them all regardless. One gift I disliked were the crystal wineglasses, I’d would of much preferred plain wineglasses, however I dutifully used the crystals and rejoiced whenever one was smashed/chipped, waiting and waiting for the demise of the final glass so I could justify buying a new wineglasses. 21 years later I’m still waiting for that last glass to smash. This week PC waited no longer and purchased a new set of wine glasses:):):) and I can now ditch the remaining crystal. I love my new plain wine glasses:):)
I’ve been taking pictures whilst on my walks around our property, but I’d love to participate in a ‘nature walk’ linky party. Do you know of any blogs who host a link up of nature pictures?
