If you're happy and you know it...
Clap your hands (don't eat them!) :0)
We are having such a cool week!
Yesterday we had friends arrive out-of-the blue, and that was lovely.
Then, we received a giant Lego pack, purchased after selling unwanted toys.
The kids finished the Lego in a few hours, and had a blast building it all.
Then our (awesome) neighbour came over with an armchair he and his wife were going to give to the Sallies after purchasing a new suite. It's not any old armchair- it's a la-z-boy, and it is superb!
He also brought round a compost bin he has made for me! I have been hanging out for a compost bin, and burying food scraps so as not to send them to the landfill...but it is a pain, and I don;t need another garden plot.
Every time I think I have set aside money to buy a compost bin, I use it for something more pressing...and I also just discovered they are far more costly than I had supposed. It's a real boon!
Today we went to visit unschooling friends in the morning, then walked through a bush to get to a cool park and meet up with other home edders for a picnic.
The children had a fabulous time together, then we went back to our friends' home, and enjoyed another few hours with them.
In that time, the kids also had a swim at one of their friends' homes, and then we got dropped home as well (instead of having to catch a bus).
Now the kiddos are fed and happy- watching a Scooby-Doo movie, and all is right with the world :0)
