bliss

Geoff has taken the kids to see Alvin and the chipmunks, and Matt is at a friends house so I am all by myself. First time since the beginning of December, ahhh, feel the serenity....

Anyway have taken the opportunity to do housework (HA). Nope, have done two versions of Sketchy Thursdays latest sketch, not sure whether it is because I like the sketch or am in too lazy a mood to think about two layouts at a time.


This photo was taken yesterday just before Meaghan and her friend Holly were off to the shops for afternoon tea. Very impressed with themselves I think. The penguin t shirts were not previously coordinated, just similar tastes. They are happy confident girls, more than ready for there second year of high school. Holly's mum later rang Geoff to tell us how impressed she was with Meaghan's manners and outlook, which is always lovely to hear.


This photo was taken last year when we were clearing branches around the yard. Matt's job was to put them through the grinder. He actually doesn't mind that job, but it is so funny to watch the shoulders slump when he is asked to rake or mow the lawns. Such a hard life...

Time to enjoy my peace and quiet for a little longer and then off for a bike ride around the lake with Geoff. A nice way to spend a Saturday. xxx
