And What Are You Up To Today?

Much excitement - I have found out (after emailing the company), that the delightful dinnerware I am so enamoured with is available here in Australia! So for any Aussie girls who feel they have to have it - go to Myer LOL Failing that they will ship overseas, but I expect the postage would be rather hefty.

A busy day for me today...starting with netball this morning and then some shopping.
Miss Brooklyn is leaving for Grade 7 camp on Thursday. They are off to Canberra, Sydney and then the snow! She's very excited, as you can imagine. Of course, coming from the Sunshine State, we aren't very prepared for cold and snowy climes, so it's off to the shops for some snuggly clothes and a few other essentials.
Then on to the supermarket for the weekly grocery shop - the dinner menu is written, but alas, the list is not.

The Sweetie is very impressed with our washing machine (and you thought I could go a week without a post about laundry? Ha!). Yesterday was spent with my favourite appliance - I lost count, but I did a minimum of eight loads of laundry and our sullage tank (where the grey water goes) wasn't anywhere near full! Sweetie says everyone should have a machine like ours LOL. Of course they are giving government rebates if you buy a water saving machine now - I got mine for my birthday last year, and unfortunately I don't qualify for being forward-thinking!

Oh, and Miss Gabbie and team won their netball carnival on Sunday! Unfortunately, Gabbie came home with a knee the size of a melon, and now physiotherapy is in order. She has a week to get better before another major tournament for school, an then the biggest (and last - woohoo!) carnival of the year. They fly to Rockhampton on July 28. I think then she is announcing her "retirement".

Well, I think I have caught you up on all the happenings, so we'll talk soon...

You have been a busy bee. How is Gabbie's knee now? That china sure is pretty... just my cup of tea! I will go check that out, thanks. I remember when I first got my washing machine lol I did the very same thing. Of course mine is'nt as "green" as yours is but it sure is pretty lol. Where would we be? I know where I'd be if I did'nt have one.... sitting in the corner of my laundry rocking back and forth and going batty... that's for sure. xox Nic.
