Those orange beads are hollows that I made. And yes you make me blush - thank you for the wonderful comments.
That glass is from rods that are pulled in India and nobody seems to know much about it. It is rather cheap and shocky and can be very dirty. I'm not keen on it, but when I etched them they looked rather cool and everyone loves them. Go figure!! LOL
Did I tell you we got a call to appear in the principals office!! I don't think it is about our champagne and all at the concert but where Brad is going to be next year. Don't you just hate the principals office. Feels like being back at school all over again. LOL
Today was rather hectic and after a rought start it has ended up with every muscle in my body screaming in agony. Don't ask!!!
I have a crazy but fun weekend ahead. Not sure how many beads I'll get made but I'm sure there will be one or two or three.
Have fun this weekend!!! I'll see if I can find a pic or two to post.
Hang on - at least he was on for more than 2 seconds here!!!
Guess you thought you might not hear from me today. I'll be honest and say there were moments that could have had me locked up and myself and child expelled. Nah, not that bad. But close (evil grin)!!
Tonight was Brad's big night. His school concert. They have been working on this for a good few months and school work came to a complete standstill of late. You would think that Brad who is 7 would have been happy, but not. I heard frequent moanings of I'm bored, and all we do is play practise, and the best, I don't want to go to school. But hang on, you're doing NO WORK!! But mom, I'm BORED!!! Now I know why. If we, the parents blinked we would have missed him. There's my baby, there goes my baby. Hang on - is he coming back. Nope that was it. The poor guy then had to sit back stage and wait till the end. Luckily he had friends to wait with.
I discovered that Josh who is three is made for the stage. His voice can resonate. Yes, the most popular parents were at the top of the most 'shooshed list'. The poor guy was just so excited!!! He clapped, he jumped for joy and of course he had to share his excitement with everyone else in the backrow. This was not appreciated at all. Especially by Brad's teacher whose daughter had one of the lead roles. Seeing as the teacher was one of the organisers pushing all the buttons including mine she had to be at the back. Now I would think she would know her own daughters lines off by heart but apparently not as she could not recite them word for word and needed to hear her daughter say them for the zillionth time and Josh who is three was not helping one bit. Yep, you guessed it --- she led the SHOOSH brigade. Now I will not comment on the other toddlers who were making just as must noise. Hang on, their moms are not as outspoken as me. Darn!!! Oh and just so we are all clear. Darling hubby was in charge of Josh who is three. Hmmmm!!! Wonder whose buttons he was trying to push.
Back to the most liked mom. My sister did hear another mom saying that she was at the top of the list. Guessing us outspoken moms are competing for the No. 1 spot!!! Cause I thought it was mine, all mine, I tell you.
I guess you want to know why we have no photo of Brad who is seven as a tree in Snow White who walked on one end of the stage and straight off the other. I'll be honest, that was all my fault and I forgot to recharge the Nikon, so I get darling hubby asking if I brought the backup Kodak. Did I forget to tell you I'm supermom who remembers everything. Of course not, I tell him!!! It would mean I'm super efficient and that would place me in the yuppie mummy category and that is one possie I do not want, Thank You!!!
We got to hang out with the cool moms too. We had fun!!! We organised a picnic. Now picnics and sudden downpours and highveld thunderstorms do not go hand in hand. Did I mention I was wearing a white top and competing in the all new Wet T-Shirt Mommy competition. So here we are with bubbly and gourmet snacks inside having our picnic - I'm expecting a call to report to the Principals office tomorrow morning. As long as she calls the other cool moms - that's fine with me!!!
The best part is we rush in with three kids in tow, no hang on, they ran on in ahead. It's pouring buckets. Now in the chaos I think I've told my sister to grab Josh who is three. So we get inside. Get everything setup by the cool moms and hang on - where's Josh. Uhhhhm still in the car!!! Not good!!!
Happy Thanksgiving to all my American buddies. Love you girls, miss you and hope you're having fun!!!
Hopefully another task completed in an already full 'To Do' List.
To make silk ribbons. It is just one of those ideas in my head and it just won't go away no matter how hard I try to. My mind is made up and those are the only ribbons that will do to go with my pendants.
I'm too scared to track my overlocker down. I know it is buried in this mayhem somewhere, even more, I dread having to thread the nightmare of a thing.
This morning also involved a run by Seattle Coffee Company and for a change I had a Vanilla Latte, instead of the Raspberry.
I'm a Stay at home mom (SAHM), who should be melting glass, and lives day to day and beyond as well as operating as mom's taxi to my two stunning boys. LOL I'm with my kids 24/7 and I love it, okay, not all the time. My blog is here to remind me of all the good and bad times as well as the UGLY!! The people who cross my path and share my journey. Enjoy!! Right now I'm learning to dance in the rain.
