This week at our place...

We baked Anzac Biscuits.

Our little boy had his adenoids removed. His first surgery. The anaesthetic experience did not go as smoothly as I  had hoped.

The man of the house has had a vomiting bug. I wonder if it's the same one Lulu had last week

Bellaboo played in a chess tournament. She tied one game and lost seven. She loved every minute of it. She was pulled into the team as at the last minute as they had five children away sick!  She even had to play against some high school boys. She's in Year 3. Next year she hopes to make the team for real.

I visited five op shops this week. I bought a few treasures. As we were leaving the last shop, Ollie boy declared 'after you, ladies first!' Melt my heart! There is something sweet about hearing those words from a five year old boy.

Ollie and Lulu made some blow paintings. They have played beautifully while O has been off school. They have become great little mates the last few months.

My ironing looks like this.

We have watched 'Bridge to Terabithia' three times. I LOVE that movie:) Everything about it.

I don't know what I am going to cook for dinner tonight. I hate cooking dinner! I have no trouble at all cooking cakes and slices though:)

Today, our big girl is on a school excursion here and here -her daddy went along as a parent helper. He sent me this picture from his phone earlier.

Our beautiful nurse called with Bella's sputum results. She has another lung infection. Staph this time.

This book arrived in the mail this week.

I treated myself. Gosh I seem to be doing a bit of that lately ;)
I'm so pleased I did though. It's gorgeous!!!

Have a happy weekend!

Oh...and I remember visiting those caves a few years ago on a trip...I bet they had a wonderful day.

Oh no! lung infection...go away. Hope Ollie is on the mend. Nice book, Shauna gave me the same book for my birthday and I love it. We made anzacs too, they lasted 1.5 days..

Lea there's been loads going on at your place! I hope Ollie is feeling better and that Bella gets better soon too. Looks like she was enjoying the excursion! Love the look of your new book!

Oh no staph... and after such a great result at clinic. :(
Tassy is excited that Bella went to the snow for an excursion. She lamented that they have to go to Questacon every year LOL. (Only 2 or 3 times with school, and one of those was actually preschool). She wants to go to the snow for her birthday next year. The big #10.
I hope the op does the trick for Ollie. Let me know how he goes down the track.
I'm with you re cooking - love baking, but not dinner. Mostly cos of fussy husband...

Just like Martha said...

You have been busy Lea, sounds like a very productive week...I am so much like you would BAKE all day but cooking the weekly meals, well that is another story! Hope you little man is better (what a smooth talker) and that Bella is okay, enjoy the rest if your weekend!
