2. I have a new iPad - replaced by insurance but due to my old one being almost 4 years old we chose to get an iPad mini. I am so glad I chose it - am loving it from the start again. I use it quite a lot for work so I had to get it replaced but I am loving Kindle all over again.
3. At the first sign of cooler weather the kids were in their onesies. They literally could not wait. They always look like a threesome of teddy bears in them. But yes, of course A's would be too short. I went straight to Pick n Pay who had heaps last winter and yes, heaps again - very warm thick ones, slightly thinner ones, with hoodies, without hoodies.... take your pick.
4. You know those things kids need for school? Odd beads, maybe coloured paper, ice cream sticks and stuff - it seems less now than in pre primary but they are still there. This week it was lead free soldering wire for Afrikaans. I kids you not - for Afrikaans ! And a spoon and beads. It turns out lead free soldering wire is rather tricky to find in small quantities and cost a fortune in rolls. The moms of the class banded together and soon we had it sorted among us. And if the result is as pretty as the spoon below... anytime. (It was a "follow written instructions assessment" )
5. Mr C is into origami - honestly those little diagrams and instruction leave me confused. But he seems to get it - totally by himself. I am amazed and proud - and a little ashamed that I have not tried harder to do this myself.
With that - wishing you a great weekend.
