Five snapshots!

I've gone away this weekend, and I'm typing this on the iPad so it probably won't work!  I'm gonna give it a go in any case - and I apologise for any and all typos and autocorrects right now!!! Hopefully they want be too embarrassing and I pick them up when I get home tomorrow and edit them on out!!

So as I said I've gone away for the weekend.  I decided that it was about time to head south for the weekend to where I studied at teachers college and catch up with some friends.  Today I have seen lots of old friends, seen two new houses, had more hot drinks than I normally drink in a whole week, and finished the day with a great game of canasta! Which my partner and I won by the way.
So because of this, and because I'm on the iPad, I've decided to combine my five for Friday, and my Saturday snapshots into one post this week.  (ipads are stupid and it wont let me type and ink whatI want so i will link up the photos later.) Okay I'm back and can now link everything up properly!

After lunch at my friend Rachel's today her husband took me to meet their house guests.  They have two very tame sheep grazing in their front paddock.  These sheep were so cute, very fat, and super friendly!!

If you want soft hands, get some lanolin cream!  Seriously, my hands are still soft two days later!!!

Remember a little while ago how I showed you a baby blanket I was making for a friend?  That's okay I don't blame you, here is a reminder



Well I managed to finish this beauty! Check it out!! And my friend Rachel from just before, LOVED it!!!

Now for something related to school.  My kids love playing paper scissors rock.  If we get everything done quickly in the afternoon, I will take them outside for the last 5 minutes of the day and we will play this before the bell goes.  Basically what happens is this.  Two teams stand in the corners of a court.  One runner at a time from each team runs around the court until they meet up.  They battle it out and the winner carries on.  The loser goes to the back of the line and the next runner comes out.  A point is scored when a runner wins a duel within a predetermined area, usually about a metre from the starting point of the other team.  So far the boys are up one point on the girls.

Our kids are super stars!! This term our school has an X factor competition going on.  I have been overwhelmed by the amount of pure talent that some of these kids have!! Some of our 7 and 8 year old have AMAZING voices, and there are some dancers who really know how to strut their stuff!! I have been lucky enough to be a judge for the senior students (years 5-8), and I just am finding it so hard to only pick 3 in each category!!!

  1. I felt the same way about writing post on the iPad. I was using Blogger, but I used Posts for the first time last night and liked it. You should check it out.

    I like the pictures of the sheep. I also think the X Factor competition, it sounds like a lot of fun!

  2. OMGosh, you had me laughing so hard with your autocorrect material at the beginning of your post! I am definitely there with you. I use my Kindle Fire for on the go messages and the darn autocorrect gave me FITS. I finally figured out how to turn it off. Good thing, because I was ready to fire the Fire out the window!

    Beautiful job on the baby afghan. I LOVE to crochet but am unable to with Miss DaisyMae my cat:)

    1. I nearly threw the iPad against the wall I was getting so frustrated!! I'm not very patient when it comes to technology.
      I can imagine that a cat would make crochet rather difficult!!

  3. Glad you enjoyed the visit. Isn't it always more fulfilling to give hand-made gifts than bought ones? Well done.
    Ready for week 5?

  4. I loved your pictures Erin! I also love that the sheep are named Tim and Tam, which was one of my most missed treats when I came back from Australia.
