The Daily Dirt – 12/04/11
Well people, today was awesome!!!!
As those of you that follow the blog would know my day once again started backwards (as I usually blog at night), with me sitting snug in bed with my laptop and a cuppa, churning out blog posts before 9am….. Hmmmmm I like it.
Do the kids really need to go to school so early??? hahaha kidding, but it is nice not to get up and rush about like a headless chook once in a while. 🙂
Once we were up and motivated (I mean dressed & decent) we headed to the town library for a special show they were hosting. I had kept it a surprise from the kids to
1. Curb the crazy hypo excitement,
2. cos everyone loves surprises!!!
The Halls Gap Wildlife Zoo were putting on a FREE presentation of some of their animals for the children to see. Well I couldn’t argue with that…..
Interesting and educational with the added bonus of not costing a cent! Ahhh Thank-you Halls Gap Wildlife Zoo you filled in what could have been a long and dreary morning!!!
We returned home after our excursion to the library minus one child – impromptu playdate – but with an extra tribe of kids to play with mine!!! Surprisingly for 7 children in the house, it looked pretty decent when we left to get our tea!
So while the kids were at play, my crafty buddy and I sat staring at the computer screen trying to decipher a jibberish type language that would allow us to master Adobe Illustrator. Ha! What a joke. We did learn a few bits and pieces though and came up with a fantastic piece of artwork in the process.
Super happy dance! I just hope it all works out in the end! 🙂
Before we knew it, it was time to pack up and get organised to go and pick up Brian from work and take the kids to McDonald’s. A promised I had made 2 weeks ago.
That’s right, I even got to have a day off cooking!!! Awesome!
Being our Family Movie Night, and school holidays, the video shop had nothing exciting to offer so we all sat down and watched our copy of Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets.
I thought the giant spiders would have had the MonsterSquad squirming and running up the hallway but they were so intent on seeing the whole movie through. I did get a few tight squeezes on my arm in other parts though!!!!
It was a nice way to end a great day.
Lets hope tomorrow will be just as easy-going!!!
