Project Life: Week 14

This has been a fantastic week… and I’m not just saying that because the school holidays are here!

I started off the week at school with a million things on my checklist of ‘Things to do’ and by Thursday afternoon it was pretty much all completed :)

Here’s a look at this weeks pages:Full_1

‘Uncle James’ had his birthday on Monday so Toby sent him a very nice email… and Uncle James even sent him a reply.

We had a staff meeting for our new school data collection on Monday afternoon and I’m happy to say that I really like the new programme!  Best of all I can access it from home which is going to make things so much easier.

I also got some Easter cards made for my nieces and nephews as well as some invitations for one set of kids to spend some quality ‘Auntie Time’ with me…. all individually… absolutely looking forward to that!Right_1

Four of my kids spent several hours this week constructing an enormous flower to go on our classroom wall!  They had a photo to work from and boy did they work hard!  There was heaps of team work, problem solving, thinking and FUN :)

By the end of the school week we knew which group had the most points and the boys had really worked hard to earn them so we had lunch at McDonalds on the last day… it’s only a five minute walk from school so it’s a great place for a treat.

Mikayla and I also managed to get our groceries done on Thursday so we were all set for the big weekend!Left_1

On Good Friday, the three of us all headed down to my cousins place to spend some time together.  Toby got to meet some of his horses and he was amazed at how BIG they were.

That night I cooked a three-course dinner at his place while Toby ran around with his new girlfriend!  YES Toby has a girlfriend LOL

Her name is Willow and she’s an American Bull Mastiff cross and just five months old.  She’s got a lovely nature and a pretty face.  Toby definitely has good taste!IMG_6993_1

Toby and Willow spent some time getting to know each other which of course involved… butt sniffing, ear licking and pushing each other around.  Willow is the same size as Toby and she gave as good as she got. 

By the end of the evening Toby and Willow were curled up together and sharing all of Willow’s toys and bones.

They were both sad when the evening came to an end and Toby has definitely been missing her, so we’ll have to get together again soon.

For my creativity piece this week I’ve done another Easter Bunny.  I’m definitely over making them now as I’ve made big ones for cards and little ones for ATC’s!Creativity_1

So that’s my week… I hope you’re all having a very happy Easter xxx


  1. Great that you got so much of your lists ticked off before the holidays and leaves the way clear for your "auntie time". Have fun.

  2. Uncle James loved his e-mail - although he will deny it if asked, lol.
    I love the idea of "keeping it lowercase" Shell. I will be keeping that in mind at stressful times.
    It seems your creativity is rubbing off on your school kids! They are indeed, fantastic. Thanks for sharing your week. xoxo


Hi :) I really love hearing from you so please leave me a comment... I really appreciate it!
Thanks, Shell xx
