It put a smile on my face

Most of what I really need to know about how to live, and what to do, and how to be, I learned in kindergarten. Wisdom was not at the top of the graduate school mountain but there in the sandbox at nursery school. These are the things I learned: Share everything. Play fair. Don't hit people. Put things back where you found them. Clean up your own mess. Don't take things that aren't yours. Say you're sorry when you hurt someone. Wash your hands before you eat. Flush. Warm cookies and cold milk are good for you. Live a balanced life. Learn some and think some and draw and paint and sing and dance and play and work some every day. Take a nap every afternoon. When you go out into the world, watch for traffic, hold hands, and stick together. Be aware of wonder. Remember the little seed in the plastic cup. The roots go down and the plant goes up and nobody really knows how or why, but we are all like that. Goldfish and hamsters and white mice and even the little seed in the plastic cup -- they all die. So do we. And then remember the book about Dick and Jane and the first word you learned, the biggest word of all: LOOK. Everything you need to know is in there somewhere. The Golden Rule and love and basic sanitation. Ecology and politics and sane living. Think of what a better world it would be if we all -- the whole world -- had cookies and milk about 3 o'clock every afternoon and then lay down with our blankets for a nap. Or if we had a basic policy in our nation and other nations to always put things back where we found them and cleaned up our own messes. And it is still true, no matter how old you are, when you go out into the world it is best to hold hands and stick together. "All I ever really needed to know I learned in kindergarten"

wow cant believe how quick this weekend went past, love having the weekends off. I'm feeling on top of things at the moment, the great news is that I'm off the depression pill, and going really good, I really think that for me dealing /walking away with negative people in my life is a huge part of helping me with my depression. I spent hours talking with the person who trigger it. I feel so good to get it out and tell them how I feel about them, it doesn't mean I have forgiven them,I don't think I can, but we are moving on.

but it feels so good to have the people who can give me the positive in my life, the main people are my family and my true friends who has stayed with me at the most ed hardest time in my life, it's the little things that count that helped me like, how a really feeling/asking for my advice/having a cup per/ lovely emails,cards. so big thanks to you guys, you know who you are.

anyway Friday night the family went out to dinnerhad a great time sitting there having fun

*Saturday night had a movie night with the kids we watched barn yard very fun movie.Matt and I LOL more then the kids

*I made a lovely box to put my ribbons,so happy how it turned out.

* I did a quick layout too, love the photo's of the boys.

OMG what a week I have had, most people knows that I finish working at the Swiss cottage, So I was hoping that I would get 1 or 2 weeks off before I can get back into work, well it started soon then I hoped, working with Matt is going to be ready good we have great ideas for the few gardens that we are doing, but it's nothing like working in a kitchen, everything you do in gardening takes so long to get anywhere,we a building a deck and garden beds at the moment, all the nuts and bolts you have to screw for the deck takes forever, and very time I dig a hole for the garden bed I hit rock so that takes longer to work around, but the good thing is that I know what I'm doing, the night before if I'm not 100% sure and Matt is to busy to help me I call my dad or Google. (forgot to take photo's show you next time). So you are asking where are the kids, well first Oliver's at school, and mum looks after the kids for a day and there is daycare too. So the days I'm not out in the cold,I'm on the phone or net trying to find supplies, so happy with myself today saved on $400 on plants, mm mm could get heaps on scrabooking things with that LOL (joking Matt).
so talking about scrapbooking I have my nights to scrap, I have been busy making a book for a great family friend,we are having a Xmas in July in the next few weeks and I thought it would be nice to make something. here are photo's of the mess. I will take photo's of the book when i have finish making it
well that is it for me have to get back into it, the house is a mess and going to Penrith tonight with mum to shop at target for the toy sale.

things to share

So it's been i while since the last time i was on here, Time has flown past again, it doesn't help when you have 3 kids and 2 of them are sick gggrrrrrr.

* I did a spring cleaning here,not only a spring cleaning but changing rooms too, people who knows me I'm always changing the furniture around. So now the boys are in one room, lucky that we only have had a few fight so far. The best bit about moving things around is that i have a scrap room/office, it's working great we have a t.v in there too, so the kids have room to watch t.v and room the play too, I have heaps of room to make heaps of mess,and scrap.

*Last Saturday I did a course on OHS general Induction for construction/ work safety on construction sights, i needed to get a white card for our gardening business, WOWOWOWOWO I got it, It was the easiest test.

*this week is my last week at the Swiss cottage, so after many years of working there it will be the end, I have mixes feels about it. happy sad glad.

*After seeing Sian's mini album I had to do one,so much fun making it,still have a few more pages to put in it.

*It was Sian's 20Th birthday HAPPY BIRTHDAY SIAN.

*I scraped a box to put all my cards and letters that my great pom mate Suzanne sends me every2 weeks. Miss you babe.

* Matt got a new huge landscaping job in springwoods, very happy about that.

That is it from here, have to go kids fighting.

love Marie
