kate5kiwis: On the Seventeenth Day of Christmas

“If you were all alone in the universe with no one to talk to, no one with which to share the beauty of the stars, to laugh with, to touch, what would be your purpose in life? It is other life, it is love, which gives your life meaning. This is harmony. We must discover the joy of each other, the joy of challenge, the joy of growth.” — Mitsugi Saotome

On the Seventeenth Day of Christmas

Mick and I wrote a letter to Santa -
well he dictated and I wrote it -
then he posted it at the cutest little
Santa's Post Box we've evah seen -
it's in our village!

today's The Last Day of H'officially Homeschooling - to celebrate, the lads chose to get pizzas and a movie - and Bulldog and I are going out dancing tonight! oh and guess what? i just opened Woozie's school mag and found a photo of The BD and moi at the ball lol
- and (completely unrelated) BD bouncing on a pogo stick - what DO those teachers do all day?!!! oh and in other news - Woozie got two StickerfiKATEs certificates in the prizegiving ceremony yesterday - one is for French and one is a Merit StickerfiKATE for all around fabulous grades - awesome chick!

Best wishes for new adventures and wishing you all every happiness as the New Year draws closer.

That letter is so cute - love the 'so you have a wife?' question!

Also loving your new 'banner' header with the fabulous gingerbread house! You're going to have the best holiday ever!

the beach makes life so much fun - here's to a LONG summer! mwah X

i thought the ever - EVER was so cute too. something happens when kids try to write their own sentences, dontcha think? they lose their wonderful speech patterns. i'm glad i wrote that down. mwah X

sarah
oh thank you, thank you!
this summer tastes so sweet already! happy christmas right back atcha! mwah X

ang
my newest idea is that from today i am going to be "in the now" - living and focussing on just today, this one day.
and then i think it will flow.
enjoying each moment, letting the rest just happen.
