Five for Friday edition 10

Gosh a week without posts - it's been a very busy one though
  • I have spent the last two days at the Sustainability week - more correctly the Green Building conference so my 3 workdays have been full and very busy. Apart from the nitty gritty of the conference there where quite a few interesting side things to see - beautiful new electric cars from BMW, solar lights and phone chargers and cool water wheelbarrows. And amazing ideas to recycle car tyres.

  • The boys ended a great rugby season yesterday with just one loss in the league. L had a great little run for the goal line yesterday but was tackled a few meters short. Although Mr C was not playing this week because:
  • Mr C has been at home since Tuesday - he has the horrid combination of Bronchitus and Croup like he last had years and years ago. I feel so sorry for him - he is literally coughing until his tummy hurts. As a result of the above last night was one that brings back 4/5 years ago's nights of little and broken sleep. I am exhausted this morning. And thankful that it's now an exception and not the norm any more.
  • Our cauliflower plants in the veggy patch has grown to almost shrub like size - with no head in sight. I am wondering what went wrong? Any ideas?

  • Our Princess had her first non ballet dance exam last Saturday - grade 4 Lyrical. It's been only 5 months since she started this discipline and when I realized that she and her friend were the youngest two girls to do this exam at their dance school I was a admittedly worried. But not only did she pass the exam  - she passed it with a distinction! We are very proud of her and the hard work she has put into it.
With that - wishing you a great weekend! And share your 5 things for Friday.


  1. Shame! Best wishes that Mr C will beat the bugs soon! Well done to A for the dancing! That is something to be proud of!

  2. Those tyre chairs are amazing :)

    Hope you have a house of well children and adults soon.

    We are all just about normal again. my client today said he is the only man standing - wife and 4 kids all sick. 4 kids 5 and under....

  3. Nasty but going around!! Hope he is better now

  4. Davids cauliflower is doing the same thing? Maybe we are just in a hurry?
    We have thankfully escaped the sicks so far!


So what's on your mind?
