The lessons we learn from our children.
On a totally unrelated topic, I am LOVING this stay at home Mum thing. I have had a few days to call my own lately and I am amazed at how much I get done and how good it feels to potter around. I have baked for the joy of it, instead of a frenzied rush to fill lunchboxes. I am even not minding the domestic drudge stuff so much because I can pepper it with a little bit of crafting in between.
Today I even made it to the Op Shop and spent $13 on things to make me happy.
What is not to love about Op Shops? I found a great little aqua and red checked esprit shirt, and a nice long brown cardi and a green skirt (perfect for my upcoming CTMH leaders Conference) and then I found another Kate Morton book (I enjoyed the Distant Hours so much that I can barely wait to start this one!) and a cute little pen caddy (haven't decided whether to leave it as is or spray paint it aqua yet) and a couple of zips for project bags, and a sweet little bear puppet and a jingly jangly elephant chain for kindy, and a beautiful linen embroidered tablecloth for 50 cents! And when I got to the front counter with my treasures they had a hot pink geranium on the counter for $3.
Oh I do love Op Shops!!!
