the weather is becoming cool with the past couple of days warranting a jumper all day...it is still pleasant enough in the sun and on the odd occasion we like to get out and about on the shores of sandgate or shorncliffe.
staying at home allows me to be up at the school with the girls so much more and once again i was able to catch Mia at her assembly. i didn't take the camera with me but i took the video instead as mister wanted to see her perform. she had a good speaking bit and looked oh so cute in her farm girl outfit.
we have also been looking after my neighbours son before and after school while she completes her final year of teaching prac. and i am secretly falling in love with him...he is definitely a boy, so different to my girls but a delightful little fella. i feel my heart swell with pride as i watch him get a reward from his teacher and i place a light kiss on top of his head as i send him on his way to class. and i love the way he catches my eye in the afternoon and smiles with the comfort that i am there to pick him up. he told his mummy the other day that he loved coming to our place cause it was a 'nice home'...no better compliment than that. we only have one more day with him as her prac finishes tomorrow but there will be more to come later in the year :)
and i am starting winter off on the wrong foot..i have a cold!! my nose is dripping like a tap and i am not exaggerating...i am sure you have all experienced that sort of runny nose. my nose is red raw and i feel rather pathetic. nothing a day without children wont cure :) if only i was the type who could sleep during the day.
well i am off to have my cuppa and watch my weekly dose of silly desperate housewives.
