Back to School

Our 3 children are back to school next week

Can't believe the holidays are almost over!

Last week I was covering books, putting their names on pencils, 

oil pastel crayons, calculators, text books, rulers. . .

Crazy how long it takes

I bought new school shorts for one of our boys, too

I remembered, I needed to make a library bag for our daughter

Made it today

Our baby will be starting Kindy (Pre Prep)

The time has flown by!! 

I hand stitched Yuna's name onto her library bag

She said 'I can eat cherries all day'

Hubby says it looks good

Our eldest son will start Year 5

Our 2nd son starts Year 2

Our daughter starts Kindy

What grade are your children starting this year? 

Are you ready for packing lunches?

My favourite song, at present, is 'Valentine' by Casey & Michelle Barnes

You'll see why I've fallen head over heals in Love with their song

Charli and Moss are so cute

To my amazing husband {of almost 19yrs}

I'm Bored container

I know I said it when I was a child

My own children say it too! 

School holidays are when I hear it more often. . .

'I'm Bored!'

It can be hard to keep your children entertained for most of the day

I got the idea to make the 'I'm Bored' container via Pinterest, 
from The Organised Housewife

I'll be using the 'I'm Bored' container 

during the remainder of school holidays 

when our children need something to do

Here's an example of some activities your children can do

Come up with your own list of activities 


a list can be printed from Home Spun Threads

Happy Birthday, Beautiful ~^^

We celebrated our daughter's 4th Birthday on December 18

She was so excited when it finally arrived!!

Yuna loves Hello Kitty (I do too)

The night before I made sure she was asleep

Then I put the new bedding on 

A nice surprise for when Yuna woke on her Birthday

We dropped by the shops and bought 

some beautiful roses for our beautiful girl

Yuna chose the colour

We had a wonderful time celebrating 

~ ~ ~

Wishing you all a Happy New Year filled with health and happiness
