School holidays ....

We are half way through the school holidays here ... Katie is working full time now .. So is Levi .. and that leaves 3 boys who need supervision through the day while mum and dad are not there .. and as we are the only family for miles around we get the job ... I don't mind at all ... in fact I love seeing the boys and spending time with them ... they are a joy .. but I did have lots I needed to get done this past week ... and in between I had a gall attack and was in bed for 2 days and my darling husband took over my duties .. got up in the morning .. had his coffee and headed over to the kids place to watch the boys .. and he did it without complaint ... he took his kindle and off he went ...

the boys are truly great to 'babysit' ... Cameron who is 12 just sits and plays on his phone all day ... Barak .. 10 and Chance 6 play the playstation ... all day .... and I don't care ... cos they are not seen ... not heard and I have to go looking for them to come eat lunch and snacks ... they don't fight .. they don't yell and scream or have tanties .. they get all their chores done and then do what they want ... ... I can sit and sew all day if I choose ... although it is a little difficult to pack everything I need to take over in the morning and return with it at night .. so I take hand sewing or magazines .. and just vege out ...

When Poppy went to babysit .. he got offered coffee ... Cameron made it for him .. and at lunch time .. Barak made him a cheese sandwich with no butter cos it is hard to spread ... and Chance brought him a mandarin for afternoon tea ...

Now Nan .. she gets nothing ... no coffee . . no lunch ... no mandarin ... sheesh .. she don't even get the offer of these things ... so next week when I go back to babysit ... I don't want the coffee cos I don't drink it through the day ... and I need butter on my bread so they won't have to make me one of those cheese sandwiches either .. but ... I will be demanding I get a mandarin ... a nice big fat juicy one ... haha

love these kids .. they are a small part of my family .. but an extremely large part of my life ..
