Whooo Hoot Wednesday

I got new jammies yesterday! I just happened to spot them at the supermarket and they made me smile – so I took them home. Whoo Hooo!

French knitting. Remember this?

I used to spend hours doing my knitting, but in those days it was with a wooden cotton reel and four nails. We are making these tomorrow night with the Rally girls. Wish wooden cotton reels were still around. We will make do with a block of wood and a hole drilled through the middle. I spent the morning sitting in the sun at kindy knitting – so I had an example to show the girls what french knitting looks like. Whooo Hooo!

Speaking of kindy – we got the official letter saying Jessi can come to mornings on the 19th. That’s not too long now. Today was just a visit and I had to stay with her but on the 19th I get to leave her there – whoo hooo! It’s not that I can’t wait to get rid of her or anything. I actually enjoy Jessi’s company most of the time. But she just needs more than afternoon kindy can offer her, more structure, more stimulation, more time. She is ready. And she found the last two days at afternoons really hard, because all her little friends have moved on. So not long now!

And Whooo Hooo I got a mention on Scrap Scene. I got home from kindy to see messages from Janine and Louise about my name on Scrap Scene for the truly trendy competition. Big congrats to Louise and Ilka who actually won prizes! Yay for NZ scrappers.

And Janine also mentioned yesterday that I’m starting up a Johnsonville crop. I’ve been meaning to do this for a while but …. well, you know. So, it’s decided. We are doing it. The first one is on Thursday 15th of May 7-11ish at Broderick Rd Chapel (17 Broderick Rd – use the driveway by the library to get to the back door entrance) Cost is just a gold coin to cover supper costs. Bring your own stuff to work on and get to know some other scrappers in the area. This will be a regular event – haven’t decided if we will do fortnightly or four weekly, but let me know your thoughts and we will go from there.

Right, time to get the kiddos from school and then on to Netball/Soccer practise – Whoo Hooo!
