i feel a bad moon arising....

well folks i can almost taste WORK! now i cant complain cause i have been on holidays since around the 5th of december.... but it means that all this blogging stuff will have to be pushed aside while i sort out my work routine. i havent finished covering lilis books yet, let alone looked at what i will be teaching on the first day of school on wednesday the 28th aaarrrggg.
we went school shoe shopping today... $130 later, two pairs of shoes and the sinking feeling that i once again paid too much to ensure that their feet dont end up with bunions like mine. then i came home to this...
yes claudia getting in on the school action. she is so cute and in her own mind quite ready for 'big school' , she wont be going anywhere till 2012!! july baby, she misses out by 3 days, she will be well and truly ready by then!! so will i :)
one thing i did achieve today was to complete a wisp (Work In Slow Progress)i managed to cut and pin some designs ready for stitching and guess what.... ta da
one finished heart! i added some buttons on the front cause they seem to be all the rage and i even stuffed some lavender inside so it smells sweet too. i have posted about it on my other blog ~ i cant sew~ if you feel you need to look at it some more.
most excitingly we are off to see the lovely linda on tuesday for some morning tea and i will be able to pick her brain about etsy and other crafting stuff. cant wait just to chat with her actually. dont forget to visit her blog ~lilly cottage~ as she is having a giveaway and wants as many visitors as possible. you never know it might be you who wins her gorgeous valentines give away!!
well i am off to email my new teaching partner the lovely michelle and then cover some books... oh joy!
mmwwaahh %*_*%

Like your little heart, very pretty. It seems so weird to think you're just going back to school after the summer hols, when ours have been back since September, new school shoes, books etc seems ages ago.
I took a look at your other blog, like your little birds very much, think I've said before.
Take care.

Your children are so utterly adorable. I think I may have said that before.
When you teach primary school, do you teach all subjects? Or do they have a math teacher, an English teacher and so on? Do the children wear school uniforms?

I need a cuddle from Claudia. She is so adorable (I know there's a monster hiding under that cute smile, but i think she's bewitched me or something), and little, and I think kids give the best cuddles. Actually, I want a bonser girls hug. All three of them. Or four :)

Hey Rosey! That Lilly Linda must be getting around at the moment, as she's coming up to Toowoomba to play on the weekend and we're planning all sorts of mischeif - the husbands are afraid ... VERY afraid! Tee! Hee! Hee! Your little button heart looks great, too!! Bear Hugs! KRIS
