Mummmm - don't be so grumpy all the time ...
... and why wouldn't I be, wouldn't you be? This is a photo taken after biggest son had come home from his couple of hours at school, then left again to meet his friends - he couldn't see the problem? Ummm your bedroom is bad enough, now you're obviously undressing as you walk into it and leaving the mess as you go? This is SUCH a typical image of him at the moment, I couldn't resist taking a snap of it ;)
Today was to be my first day of everyone back at school, the younger four went back to primary school on Wednesday, today is the first whole day for David at high school. But it's not to be, tragically, two of the school's classrooms were destroyed by fire early this morning, so primary school children all have the day off. They'd just started the year to finally having most of the building and renovation work finished at the school, including the administration block all being redone - apparently that has been damaged in the fire too. I really feel for the teachers who must have had all their resources in those classrooms - you can rebuild walls, but not notes and books.
I'll go to work an hour later (I usually leave an hour before school finishes and David Jnr babysits when they all arrive home - so I need to wait until he comes home), I think I'll take the kids to the pools for an hour or two before work, it's been pretty hot here (although not so bad today), the pools should be quite empty with all the other schools open!
Needleroll SAL this weekend - as I've been looking/sorting through all my charts etc I found a Kiwi design I'd forgotten I had - Paua Shell by Cherry Parker - I've got the speciality threads I need in with the design, so I think I will stitch that. Life is unbelievably not so busy for me right now and I'm loving the extra stitching time its giving me!
