Mase had a fantastic time today helping smash down the gib board. I guess all little boys have this somewhere in their genes.

Some time ago, the laundry plumbing at the MIL's gave up the ghost. We found out when the wall between the laundry & toilet blew up-the skirting board looks awful.
So the plumber has been, and some twit has given her a quote to fix that is so far out it's not funny. Simon's solution is that we clear out everything so we can get a clear view. Hence the 7.5 cubic bin on the front lawn. It is amazing how big that space is. If we had the money I'd re-design the space and have a butler's pantry.
The sprinkling of rain is very welcome - it is hot work in this weather. I'm looking forward to the cricket tonight & some relaxing.

Its nearly 2013. I haven't used this blog as I've been using Facebook to keep the creativity going. Clearly a fail, and I know a little too much about some people!
So I've already selected my word for next year. Create. On a budget, too. That will be impressive, no? It is a very good thing I've discovered Pinterest! I'm even machine sewing. My biological mother was good at sewing and used to pick anything I made apart verbally, so until last month it wasn't something I enjoyed. But I made Si a waistcoat for his fancy dress (Al Capone) and then a cupcake print apron (with pockets) that she loves, so now its something to enjoy.
Simon's word for me would be employment. I'm going to relax about that; Bran starts high school next year and Mase starts kindy. Zac will be one of a few year six in a combined 6/7/8 class and he'll find that hard going too. A job will come along at the right time.
And the photo below? That's Mase. Merry Christmas!
