So my brother sent me an email last Sunday with strict instructions to create a playlist. As I usually do as I’m told I went ahead and downloaded it and have enjoyed it. Worth a look in if you’re that way inclined too. Perfect for a Saturday afternoon as well. Off you go…
Anyone else have an almost 7 year old that you’ve realised that you have forgotten to teach them how to tie their own shoelaces? Me too! It occurred to me that velcro has made us lazy parents and that this just won’t do. I spent Tuesday morning last week like a TIGER mother trying to teach Daisy how to do her shoes properly. We both got very frustrated, cranky with each other and tears were shed, but we got there. I had an interesting chat to her teacher about it…have we all forgotten some easy things like this? Or is it just me?
I will NEVER fail to be bewildered at what some people type into google that stumble across to my blog. This week my favourite search term was “can you rinse dishes with extendable tap?” DUDE. Do you really need to ask Google that? You can rinse dishes whichever way you want. You can! No permission slip even required! My other favourite is about cushion placement on a couch. My work in the world is done.
Yesterday afternoon in our last session for the day at Problogger conference we had a few highlights. Clare Bowditch sang this song which was SO beautiful.
And then we got to meet Samuel Johnson and hear about his Love your Sister challenge that he has set out to do. You can read about it here. We also learnt about a cool app that you can download for your smart phone called SHOUT FOR GOOD. The idea of it is you can shout an amount or an item for your favourite charity such as a cupcake for $4, a bum massage for $17.50 or unicycle wheel for $100 which helps charities reach their targets and goals. LOVE this app…a quick $4 shout seems doable don’t you think? Download the app from the app store and donate something today. I’ll be shouting things for Samuel along the way…
I picked up some really great stuff for the kids in Country Target last week. Dresses for $12. CUTE dresses for $12 and the like. Have a look at some of them here.
It’s been GREAT fun up here the last few days. A highlight was donning some of Nikki’s FANCY sandals. They are like glomesh type chain mail scenario and leather tan in a wedge delight package. I felt like Cinderella in them. Perfection in a sandal. LOOK!I couldn’t STOP looking at them.
What’s on your latest playlist?
Love Clare Bowditch too?
EVER SEEN A FANCIER SANDAL THAN THAT ONE?
