Quick 7.


4th Term.

Monday it is back to the grind for us here. School holidays are over and we will be starting school again. Only 9 weeks in this term so it should go quickly.



Summer sewing continues and I have got a lot done this week. Amelia has another outfit, the same style as the blue floral one I posted last week. Tom has some more shorts and I did a pair of maternity pants for myself. This weekend I am finishing off some shorts for Christopher and cutting out a maternity dress.



This year we grew a lot of cabbage. There was so many that Steve and I decided to try making our own sauerkraut.

When I first tasted it, I thought it tasted horrible but I knew that it was pretty good so decided to try it a couple more times.

I now love the taste and it has certainly grown on me. I had a lot to eat on Wednesday and I think that is why I got over my cold so quickly.



These holidays the wii has been played a lot. The younger children were getting up really early to play. They are impossible to get out of bed when it is a school day so I decided there was no wii or computer games in the morning till 10.00am.

Christopher has enjoyed playing Super Mario, Yoshi story and Lylatt wars with lots of help from Tom.


Summer garden.

Steve has been busy in the garden and we will hopefully have a nice big crop.

Yesterday Steve picked our first cucumber and he has made some strawberry jam. As well as the cucumbers and strawberries we have corn, tomatoes, zucchini, beetroot, eggplant watermelon and rockmelon. I will take some photos later of the garden.


Bejeweled Blitz.

I really like the new updated bejeweled blitz on facebook.

Please pray for a cure for Type One Diabetes

Please pray for a cure for Type One Diabetes
Our sons Tom and Christopher and our daughter Amelia are type one diabetics. We pray everyday for a cure. We do not want one by illicit means though so don't support any organisation that contributes to Embryonic Stem Cell Research. Click on the photo of Tom and Christopher to read about why I am against using Embryonic Stem cells for a cure.
