kate5kiwis: the sixteenth and seventeeth and eighteenth daze 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 sixteenth and seventeeth and eighteenth daze of Christmas

oh it's all a bit of a blur.
we're doin' the pre-Christmas sort out.
spring cleaning *everything* that moves -
or rather, stuff that doesn't.
so don't stand still or someone'll take ya to the tip.

even decided to pay the kids to give their rooms
the biannual huck out. cos i hate swimming upstream.

oh and i got 3 Housewife Points
by doing the fridge today.
fridges, like bookshelves, reveal *so* much
about the surrounding occupants, dontcha fink?
like, there's the Pristine Stainless Steel Fridge Fronters,
and then there's the Vegemite MARMITE Fingers Brigade.
oh lookit, a frigo saboteur.

oh a poet! we start the pre-christmas chuck out tomorrow with many toys going sideways to the neighbours' kids. I love love love charlie playing the piano and have him on a continuous loop as I play on the net tonight. what a talented young man he is.

we are done. packed up and signed out. sophie was the student presenter at assembly this morning and the dp had to kick a box up to the lecturn every time she stood to speak. it was classic!

kisses to you all, summer is finally here.

Fridge magnets are cool - our little un likes to wrench them off the fridge and throw them around like discuses... I'm hoping he'll grow out of that once he realizes he can leave messages with them instead...

Our fridge is covered in magnets and "Star of the week"s that the boys have got from school. I used to have rude fridge magnets but I have put those away for now. But they were a whole lot more fun.
