Oh the loving!

Have you visited my friend Jackie's blog? She's a really funny person and I love how she writes. I also love her bullet point posts.
I hope she doesn't mind that I am going to steal the idea and do my 'loving post' bullet point style this week.

* loving my JOB. Yes, I, Leonie, LOVE my job.
I feel like I am making a difference to something that is very dear to my heart. I feel valued. I feel supported. I feel like the luckiest person in the world that I can work school hours. It is enabling us to live a more comfortable life and start renovating our house. It's only a temporary position but I really really love it for as long as it lasts.

*loving that tomorrow kids winter sports will be finished. SLEEEEEPPPP INNNNN Saturdays will make a come back.

*loving that my Mum and Dad came to stay and babysat for us, not once, but TWICE!!! We went to the movies and saw Red 2 (which was so funny, and I am NOT an action movie kinda girl) and also out for dinner with my lovely friend and her hubby. Such a good night. Such tasty Virgin Margarita slushies. I'm all class.

*loving that Mum and Dad did heaps of gardening and door fixing while they were here.
I found an old septic tank? piece out the back. instant little garden piece.
* loving that with a decent dose of thyroid hormone on board I am crafting like a demon in my 'spare'  time. Sometimes you really don't know how sick you are until you can look back retrospectively. Crafting makes me so happy. So happy. Having a metabolism again makes me even happier!

* loving that my children have made friends with our neighbour's daughter. This is something I have prayed for so long. A neighbourhood for our kids to play with other kids. A community. We are surrounded with elderly ladies in our street and I love how they have all popped in to meet us (and gossip fill us in on everyone in the neighbourhood). It is evident, that the lady who owned our house previously was very much loved and sorely missed by her friends.

* loving going on school trips!!! Earlier this week I went to Waitomo Caves and the Otorohanga Kiwi House with Miss 7 and her class.
yep socks down, shoelaces untied.

Gosh. I'm loving a lot.
Have a fab weekend everyone!!!
(ps I am LOVING the lovely comments you lovelies leave! makes my day, everytime).

Oh my goodness! Otorohanga! I was born there and I went to Hangatiki Primary which doesn't exist anymore. I used to live on Old Te Kuiti Rd.

I remember the Kiwi House! I also used to play netball up there, went to kindy across from the doctors (I think it was across from the doctors). I did Brownies...

We went to Waitomo Caves a couple times, I had cousins that lived out that way too.


Thank you for this awesome post, taking me down memory lane!
