Francoises & May............

I have been spending a little too much time hanging around ebay of late. I can't help but see lots of things I like and then make purchases. These wee girls turned up late last week, 2nd hand Mini Blythes. No boxes and not in original clothing but how could I resist them. I also bought Marine some new outfits but that will have to wait till next week. I am far too busy getting everybody organised, we leave tomorrow for a short but fun packed long weekend in Melbourne. A family wedding is always a good excuse to visit home. I have big plans to do many things in our 4 days there, shopping for a new outfit, visiting friends, seeing new babies. Oh I wonder if I will fit it all in. If not no biggy we are heading back for a longer stay at Xmas. Hopefully I will be able to meet up with a few Melbourne bloggers. Wouldn't that be exciting.

Hellooooooo kitty...................

I found the kids a nice treat today all the way from Spain( can you believe it). It was some very cute Hello Kitty biscuits.

Inside they found a very cute surprise. Some wee little Hello Kitty figure. They are oh so small about 2cm small.

I found something else oh so Hello Kitty cute. I'm putting it on my Christmas list.

My creative space.....

With a sick child in need of looking after today there isn't alot of creativity going on here but I am pottering about getting my giveaway prizes together and eating nutella on sourdough bread. This is being done in between mopping the patients brow and keeping fluids up.

If there isn't anymore vomiting to be done I might even get time to check in on what everybody else is up to today over at Kirsty's.

I want to post a bit more regularly on my blog but I don't always have interesting things to tell you all. Someday's all I seem to do is the cooking, the cleaning and ferry the kids around and I'm sure that is not high on the list of things to read about is it? We all like a bit of joy or creativity or something to make us smile. How do some of these girls out there in blogland do it day in day out. I applaud their stamina and I suppose it helps if you don't live on a sleepy island in the pacific.

So in my effort to put something up today you get a picture of very smiley creatures found in the local paper
. They could make good softies don't you think?

Sunday night draws to a close once again and we approach another Monday. This one the kids are back at school....Yippee!!! I can get back to my morning walks and a bit of quiet time for a few hours a day. We finished up our fairly quiet break with a trip to see 'The Magic Circus of Samoa'. It was fun and very entertaining with all sorts of crazy acts. I think the funniest part of this show is that it isn't very big and everybody involved in the performance is also running around doing all the other jobs. We saw the magician selling cd's, the girl from the flying trapeze selling popcorn in full make-up and the strong Samoan male dancers were changing the sets.........................Oh the life of a traveling circus show!

Monday again...........

Do you know there is only 7 more Mondays until Christmas. Just a random thought for you to throw around in your head. I mention it because Mondays just seem to be coming around like the speed of light. The weeks starts and all of a sudden here is it again. This brings me to another thing that seems to be coming around way to fast and that is school holidays here in New Caledonia. We have started a weeks break today again. We have no plans a bit of catching, up a bit of study as the kids have evaluations when they go back, a bit of general relaxing. We did start our holiday with a lovely day trip yesterday you can read about it here if you would like. Will fill you in on more exciting event throughout the week if they occur!
