hello, last week of holidays The first day of school is so close now, but we're nowhere near ready. I haven't even shopped for shoes yet, let alone books or anything else that might be needed. It's been a slack holiday, but oh so needed.
hello, bedroom cleaning I can't put it off any more, Natalie and Riley need to get their room sorted and tidy, ready for the new school year. That means getting rid of the floordrobe, putting away old school books, finding places for toys, and most of all mum needs to help them. We've battled too long over the holidays to just let it keep going into the new school year.
hello, biannual blogathon bash This is a fun little challenge that runs twice a year, where you spend 3 days focusing on activities for your blog. I've followed along a few times in the past, but never really participated, but this year I decided to set a challenge. Check back 8am EST Friday (11pm AEST) to see what it is.
hello, Presto We've had cable tv for a long time, but in the last 6 months streaming tv has come to Australia. We've wavered about joining, but when our cable company offered free access to Presto for a year, we decided to try it. Our internet isn't up to much if the kids are on their gadgets, but I started watching Heroes, and 4 episodes in I am hooked.
