*read trashy mags
*bared my flesh in the sea
*swam in the public beach pool without getting my face wet so as to avoid 'peoples juices' as my children would call it!
*giggled under the water fountain
*drank lots and lots of coffee
*enjoyed watching my girls and mister moo frolicking in the waves
*braved some waves myself
*played the newly purchased Wii
*ate at our new fav family restaurant..hogsbreath
and much much more. we had a great time and it is now back to reality. i start back this Wednesday after 16 weeks of leave. i don't at all feel prepared but am lucky to have a very laid back but totally professional teaching partner who will remind me of how it all works.
anyhow here are some pictures of why i had to have the books
and talking about collecting... my little family seem to have become collectors of all things pretty and kitsch. we took ourselves out to the local trash and treasure and spent a few pennies.
i couldn't resist this swivel mirror (missing mirror but still lovely) and the tins are just what i need to store my ever growing crafting supplies.
these two in the middle look right at home after being rescued from that nasty trash heap. i really wish i worked at the trash and treasure place, i think it would be so much fun!
it squawks quite well but needs a great deal of TLC but certainly looks great just on display the way it is. i think we need to stop collecting as our house is becoming over run with it all. not sure what friends and family must think?...
i haven't crafted since Christmas eve and it is really getting me down. i cant see a time when i will be able to at the moment as there is so much to do. on top of my work preparations, i have to cover school books for my girls which seems to be a staggering 20 each!! plus labeling all their pens and what not...i need a personal assistant just to get me through the next 6 weeks @_@
so i guess this might be a bit of a boring old blog for the next few weeks, till if find some time to create something. i have so many ideas but no time...i hate relying on money for so much. if it weren't for money i would be a house mummy.
ok enough of that, i sound like a broken record.
off to bed and then to work for the first time in 16 weeks
enjoy your Sunday
