just a minute … in november

Listening… to some classical music this month.

Watching… Entourage (season 3) and Weeds (season 4).

Tasting… success. E. was awarded his first medallion – which he subsequently wore for weeks. He and his kindy mates won first prize in a children’s week art competition. Bravo!

the taste of success

Playing… in the pool. E becomes more and more confident swimming without his floaties, Ms. M on the other hand is so cautious around the pool – so completely different to her brother at the same age. Makes hanging out pool side a much more relaxing experience. Indoors Ms. M is obsessed with the playing shopping, one of her favourite phrases is “pay money”.

Developing… big brother skills. E is really developing into a lovely, caring and protective big brother. It is so gorgeous to watch and I am so proud of him, particularly at this time as Ms. M approaches the challenging age of two.

Meeting… Lara from Create for Life for coffee. It was the first time that I’ve met up with a friend from blogland and we had such a fantastic time chatting about creating, blogging and so much more. Marvellous.

Freaking out about… unexpected expenses: the oven doesn’t work and the car’s gear box is being rebuilt. One of the shelves in the fridge just “fell off” and the washing machine is occasionally making strange sounds that make my stomach lurch. Living without an oven is one thing, existing without the washing machine is a whole other story. 

Gardening… some hot November days have taken their toll on the garden. We’ve harvested lots of artichokes, beetroot and English spinach …and finally the children have learnt to let the strawberries ripen before gobbling them all up!
