Next week is the last week of school holidays here. Steve will go into work on Thursday and Friday and the children will go back to school on the following Tuesday. 

I feel a little bit sad that the holidays are so close to finishing but it will be good to have a routine again. 

diabetes care becomes harder when the children are on holidays. They sit around a lot eating irregularly and much more than they usually would. BSL checks also tend to be on the lower side so getting back into our school routine will help manage them better. 

These holidays Steve and I have spent a lot of time looking for a unit to buy. We have made a couple of offers on two that we have liked but so far no success in buying one. Hopefully soon we will buy one. Our plan is to rent it out till Steve retires and then go and live in Adelaide. 

I have also been getting ready for Daniel and Ange's wedding. I have made Christopher a vest to wear and a dress and bolero for me. 

This is the pattern I used for the dress and bolero. 

These are the vests the boys will wear:
I made Joseph's for Musical Theatre Concert. 

Here he is in his costume: 

For the wedding, they will wear long pants, a shirt and tie with it. 

;Thanks for visiting.

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.
