Welcome friends. Would you like a tea?
Oh wait, I've run out of tea bags. How about coffee?
Oh, no milk. I just used the last.
Let me get you a glass of tap water, don't mind those smudges around the rim of glass, It's clean, I promise.
take a seat, oh, I'll just wipe that down for you.
So while you're here, let me fill you in on what's been happening.
Life here at The Beetle Shack is complete and utter chaos. The kids think it's SUPER fun to pull everything from their wardrobes and spread it all out on the floor. I think it's really NOT fun to clean it up every singe day, so there it stays upon the floor... just for a couple of days while I get over the fact that next time I pick it all up it will literally be back on the blessed floor the next morning.
Yes, yes, you're right. That is Zeph playing some kind of 'aeroplane' game with his baby sister.* She'll be fine though.
We've added some pigs to our little back yard farm and with any luck, we'll be eating home raised pork at christmas. We've also got 15 chooks, 1 duck and 3 rabbits. Oh yes, one of the rabbits has just had baby bunnies, so we've got 8 of them too. They are just starting to get some fur and practise their jumping. It is Ah-dorable.
Anyways, the last couple of days I seem to have harnessed the power of positive thinking (prayer, if you will) and I'm back in the game. Ready to make the lunches and the beds, wash the clothes (but not sort them, that bores me to tears) and launder the linen.
Things are on the up'n'up.
How's thing with you?
*no children were harmed in the writing of this post
** totally got on top of this filth over the last couple of days.
(i hope you're not too repulsed by the state of my home. Bet I made you feel good about your's though, right?)
This post is for you Grace.
