Anson arrived back in the evening with Alex from the UK.
He brought in my ‘new’ Chesterfield sofa.
Craig from Nyberg & Nelson Upholstery had transformed it from a springless, tattered heap.
I LOVE it.
Tim is not so sure.
He was making more comments and references to his hippy wife – again!
I found a roll of upholstery fabric at Waterfall to cover Tim’s armchair – he likes it and it tones in with the sofa so that’s all good.
I am going to get them all done, one at a time to spread out the cost.
After all it is around 22 years of hard wear and tear and many jumping kids since they were last covered and resprung.
Claire got straight into it and cleaned Azzan’s room.
Why is it I wonder that cleaning his room is always so high on the priority list?
A busy boy wit a busy artistic brain!!
When it was all clean and tidy Claire read stories.She was introduced to some Kiwi books which she really enjoyed – but had a hard time getting her tongue around the Maori words.
Azzan & Shanni have really been hit hard with this cough.
It is totally wiping them out.
They are coughing themselves sick.
I am trying to tempt their taste buds with different foods which they are really enjoying.
There are refusing to get dressed during the day and just mooch about in their pj’s.
Azzan is getting restless and bored with life and very negative.
Shanni’s eyes have regressed and becoem very sore again.
I am filling them both up with all the herbs etc I have so somethings gotta start helping soon.
Mahalia is heaps better already, but she had a few weeks head start on them plus she had antibiotics.
Alex & Claire went round to The Croft to get it all ready for next weekend.
Then just after they had gone to make beds I got a booking for the 2 days prior.
The folk coming in just wanted bare back hire so Anson had to zip around and get the girls to unmake the beds – sigh!
Tim spent ALL day fixing the trailer.
I had a sleep after lunch while waiting for him to be ready to go over to Waterfall to finish the wharf job.
But he was having major problems so canned going.
Alex & Claire walked over and I drove with the children.
The track was very slippery because of the rain so it took them quite a while to get around.
The children and I started sorting things out and cleaning up, then when the girls arrived they helped me to make beds.
The guys went round to Waterfall to watch the Super 14’s rugby.
We lost at the final moment.
I blobbed out and watched a movie.
