Happy new year to you! Are we refreshed, bright eyed and raring to go? Not here - the summer cold has struck and I'm stuffed up and fresh out of voice. Which is a problem because I am the sole entertainer for a 10 year old girl for a couple of days until we return her to her Dad.
So far she has swum in the pool - that was the real reason we got it Lynda ;) She has bounced on the trampoline, she has fed the chooks and sheep and collected eggs. In the evenings and whenever else she can talk us into it we have played countless Uno tournaments. She is disgusted that she has yet to win such a tournament.
New Year's Eve was uneventful until she had a "technicolour yawn" at 10 minutes to 12 and her poor Dad had to clean it all up.
Right now she is diligently "sewing" if you call me threading the needle, tying the knots, cutting the thread etc sewing. Anyway, she's enjoying it and saying that she's getting pretty good at it now.
|Love the ratty hair following the swimming pool.|
The item she's sewing is a gingerbread man which is part of a kit from Aldi that Santa brought her.
After she gets bored with the sewing we'll settle down for a movie afternoon with some choccie that she bought for me because I was sick.
Anyway, my thread cutting skills are being called for.
