Cubby houses (must be left up for days!)

Drawing :D

Grumpy faced drawing.

Being a puppy.

Making delicious Play-doh "cakes."

On organising, some more...

I've taken to knitting in a big way, and you need a lot of needles!  They were all over the place, but I thought I'd put them in an expanding file in sizes, and it's working ok so far.

Needle storage!
 While I was doing the labelling, Lolly amused herself with a "sink bath."  Messy but fun!

Sink bath friends.
I bought myself a label maker, sadly it's been like a dream of mine for many years.  *ahem*  You can see the labels on my knitting needle container.  mmmmm, labels...

Shiny!  And purple!

Smash is back to school as a Grade 12 Senior!  Here he reluctantly posting for a photo.  Note the small one has no such reluctance...

Here he is driving off to school (with his Dad, he's only on a Learners, but still...).

Shopping, in which I show off!

I shop monthly online.  It can be an arse-pain to do.  But it's also awesome.  Here's why:

Here's what our fridge looks like before - let's just say that when you shop monthly, at the end of the month your cupboard is bare...
An old cucumber, and condiments.  That's it!

The kitchen during...
Holy crap, putting this lot away sucks!
The kitchen after!
Lolly demonstrates the awesome of the pantry!

And the fridge!

It's pretty much a day's work in total to menu plan, order, and put away.  It's also totally worth it not having to do groceries again at the shop for a month.  I do a catch up shop the next day for things that they don't carry/didn't have, usually a quick half hour at the shop.  And I do fruit and veg weekly from an organics business my lovely friend owns, who deliver, and that's it! :D  No more shopping for 5 weeks!  :D

Car stickers, Part the Second

Oh thank you, Pinterest, for bringing me so much Christmas joy!  I managed to get myself together to order a few things in time for Xmas this year, mostly for DinnerDad, including these gems...  Star Wars Family car stickers!!
Lolly is the Ewok!

I love mine, too (they were a gift from DinnerDad last year, he had to order the wheelchair and turtle specially).

Happy New Year!

2012, I hope it's happy and wonderful for everyone.  I love the changing of the year, it's quite symbolic for me for thinking of what has happened in the year past, and setting intentions for the year ahead.  DinnerDad and I are on a Happiness kick this year, so more on this to follow!

Meanwhile, the kid is cute!

And more posts on Christmas and the holidays to follow.  I haven't been blogging much, so have lots to catch up on!

Happy New Year, everyone!  :D
