kate5kiwis: oodles and squoodles of moodles newsels


“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

oodles and squoodles of moodles newsels

to be honest, i’m so glad to see the tail end of last month's e-m-o-t-i-o-n-a-l r-o-l-l-e-r-c-o-a-s-t-e-r. cos i am useless at being on my own - i hate all those voices echoing in my head. at least they have company.

i have fabulous news - school has turned out to be a goodie, not a baddie - the kiddos are so settled and so happy and in such a wonderful space and i am r-e-l-i-e-v-e-d. the mahvellous thing is that there is all this wonderful stuff going on every day and i don't have to organise any of it! which means we have huge energy for the weekends.

that's a damn good thing, cos it was raining cats'n'dogs on saturday - a quick trip to the dvd rental store - problem solved. Big Family Day playing Buzz and James Bond and eating soup - our favourite comfort food. and i sneaked off to sew a skirt with this adorable fabric that i had found on Friday -

'twas a bit more pricey than a sheet from the sallies but OH! so worth it. turns out it's stretch lycra, but i sewed s-l-o-w-l-y and c-a-r-e-f-u-l-l-y and IT WORKED!!! it falls so beautifully, it's very swishy and a dream to wear.

Jaimee had her baby boy and i have nearly finished her pressie - here's a sneaky peep -

it needs threads trimming and buttons and a final tittivation... that looks like too many Ts.

today the sun came out and we ventured to a friend's resort this arvo - a palm trees by the pool sorta resort - clare and i ended up a little fuzzy headed on malibu and pineapple - photo proof.

now i'm off to bed "...to do my university reading..." (i have been listening to Bulldog say that sentence for YEARS!!! and now i can say it my very self lol) before my moodle convo tomorrow (thank God i've been a Web Wife for all these years, it turns out that moodle is as easy as holding a mouse), which will be squeezed in around my ART CLASS!!! yes, i have chosen a paper on Teaching Art Through Painting and Printing. o-a-r-s-o-m-e.

and i think, on Tuesday, Bulldog and i will take our university reading and our little oasis to the beach.

t-o-g-e-t-h-e-r. all on our onesies.

Oh wow, if you ever decide to give up on Uni you could just make skirts and sell them.

I hope it all goes well tomorrow - I know it will. I'll be thinking of you.

Same here re school - they LOVE it. Amazing really, isn't it, how children settle so quickly and grab all the good things that are on offer and ignore anything less good. Mine seem to have an inbuilt instinct for that and yours too I bet.

Big hugs xxxx
