So in the next 2 weeks....

it's silly season. No really. Get this list:
  • Two separate revue rehearsals for two separate kids on two seperate evenings (A & C). It's revue year at school - only once every 4 years, but still.
  • 4 days of ballet course (A), one day followed by the school's  big yearly festive event, one by a hockey match or two and one by her drama Eisteddfod with only 30 minutes in between the two events.
  • Said festive school event for the whole family where I am busy designing posters for the grade 2 stall.
  • English speech festival (For A)
  • A school outing (For C)
  • Spring picnic (For C) 
  • Early mornings at school on 3 occasions for team photos (all 3 kids) and one late afternoon (A)
  • One Granny day at school as seeing that we only have one granny in Pretoria I have to help and attend to make sure both my boys have someone at their little event, followed by a picnic with granny where I will have to help out.
And..... what? That's it? Somehow I feel totally out of breath just thinking about it all.

But yes, work is busy, I am totally loving family time and I am reading whenever I can. I am also loving Masterchef SA. But life is busy and somehow blogging is taking a backseat. At the same time, I am still loving Project Life and although I am even behind on that at the moment, it is taking a lot of the urgency to blog out of my life. Recording such lovely details of day to day stuff is so enjoyable and in the Project Life format we can all enjoy it as it develops every week. I am still surprised at how much I love the format and that I am not far behind. Also sad I have not done this years ago

In the meantime - the biggest "event" in the last week was Mr C loosing his first baby tooth.


  1. Am tired just reading about it!

    Joys of having little kiddies my friend.

    Sterkte, hope it turns out to be a great week and that it is full of fun and rewards xx

  6. That schedule sounds hectic! Good luck!!

  7. need a clone to keep up with your to-do list!

  8. Goodness! that is hectic, i thought my life was chaotic ....NOT! I really take my hat off to you working moms and kudos for taking the time and effort to be so involved. I know plenty of SAHM's who dont take half the interest in involvement .

  9. Sheesh that is a crazy busy week. We also have Grandparents day on Friday and my lucky little boy has all four grandparents attending. I am busy making little windmill programs for the event every evening. This is the work they didn't tell you about before you have kids. Good Luck with all the events.

  10. Holy cow - that's busy! Loved the pics!


  11. I think the more children you have, the busier one is. You have 3 vs my two and you are MUCH more busier than us. But, it's better like this than being bored. Enjoying life to the fullest.
    Enjoy everything the next 2 weeks.

  12. Wow! You're a busy little family! :) Good luck with the reviews!
