kate5kiwis: the eighth 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

the eighth day of christmas

after spending six hours proofreading/editing skool reports for Sir (at ten minutes a report... what is it with joe and josephine continually mixing up practise and practice, spelling students' names wrong, and confusing he and she? don't get me started on commas and semi colons. capital letter omissioning i will sympathise with though. pffft.), i made Big Fat Stocking Fillers Stuffs. cos last week i found seven Big Fat Very Friendly Bottles half price from Kathmandu on the whim of solving one of the summer's problèmes. The Curse of The Disappearing Drink Bottles. the other problème being that Kathmandu don't make seven varieties of Big Fat Very Friendly Bottles.

*ack!* how, oh how to differentiate? pas de problème.
nope. not keyrings.
jingle jangle name tags.

which are now firmly attached
seven Big Fat Very Friendly Bottles,
winging their way to The North Pole.
and there will be no excuses
for un/de/rehydration all summer
and beyond...

Genius! Those bottles look great and I reckon your name tags are seriously marketable :)

Oh yes, those are fab. I could do with some.

It had never occurred to me before but did when I saw your children's names all listed like that - that they all end in "el" don't they. Was that done on purpose?

There is a family at my children's school who always name theirs with four letter names and alphabetically. Although they started with H for some reason - Hero, Isis, Juno and Kumi (all girls). Perhaps there are another 7 shut in a cupboard at home or something.

haha the word verification is "flock" - flocks of children.

Right I"m off - just saying silly stuff today, aren't I?

Ha, just HAD to say something, cause perusing your comments and found the verification was 'joint'! Sorry, just my weird sense of humour! XX Lots of love.
