Its a crazy old life!!!!

Where on earth is time going? Last week was the final week of school holidays, so the girls and I tried to get into mischief. I tell you it really doesn't take much to get into mischief, and where ever possible we tried to include Nana Peacock in the mischief!

I had two photo shoots during the week, the first on Monday morning when the D girl was at kindy. I did have my wonderful big girl as my helper along with me. She is a great wee photographers assistant. So since we got done early Anya and I went and picked up some lunch and went to see if Nana was home, thank goodness she was otherwise we would have been eating pie till dinner time!

Tuesday was an at home day, we played some computer games, not Chris' racing games that the girls are really rather good at too but computer games none the less! There are some pretty amazing games out on the market for kids now days, especially for girls who really aren't into the whole shootem up thing!

Do you know how many wax and dye paintings two girls and a Nana can create in one morning? Lots thats what! And I was kept busy refilling the dye pots, breaking the odd candle here and there and making food for lunch, and that was where Wednesday morning went too. The second photo shoot that afternoon with the girls spending the afternoon with Nana. Then dinner at her place, yay no cooking for me!

Groceries of course had to happen somewhere along the line so Thursday saw us doing the dreaded grocery shop. Uhhh its so not a pleasant job and with a hungry family never a cheap thing!

Friday we went to town to the theatre, the Court Theatre each holiday puts on a childrens play, this term holiday it was "the three little pigs". First time going and I can tell you its going to be happening again, ticket prices were really good, it didn't matter if you were a child or adult the price was the same. And for the hour of the show the four actors performing were kept on the go! And as you can imagine a theatre half filled with children is bound to be somewhat on the loud side, and this was no exception. But you know what? The girls had a blast, they were joining in making as much noise as all the other kids. And absolutely loved it!

Then on Sunday, we went out to the local speedway. Needless to say it was noisy too but so much fun! The girls had a blast, though needed to be watched rather closely so that they didn't get too close to the safety fence. We did have one car roll right in front of us which was rather a sight! And it did make it clear to the girls that the cars simply don't stop quickly even if they wanted too!

Will try and post some more pages later, though there are some of of them that I can't share right at the moment. But as soon as I can you can bet you will see them here.
