A busy week…

There has been lot’s of activity in our house over the past week.

I have been re-organising the kitchen…

This cupboard was always a mess, all the Tupperware and storage containers were just tossed in here, not to mention all the accessories from the kitchen whizz and mixers etc. Once upon a time you opened this cupboard with caution but not anymore! *smile* The containers were bought from ‘The Warehouse’ for $4 each a real bargain, Lol!

Because I’m a homeschooling Mum I use the holidays to catch up on things around the home, the more organised I can be the easier life seems to flow. I have also cleaned the girls room, I had only intended to clean the windows and hang the nets up but one thing lead to another and we ended up changing their room around too!

And it feels so good, clothes were sorted, the wardrobe was tidied and three bags of rubbish were collected, Lol And here’s a photo from the outside to show off the nets(just for you Lis)

It’s taken me awhile but I am pleased to say all the nets are finished. Yesterday I snagged my DH and set him to helping clean the lounge, he wiped the ceiling while I cleaned windows and walls. Then we put up the nets in there. It feels so good to have them done!

I have also finished the tutorial for hanging a quilt, I think it deserves a post of it’s own so check back here soon.

SO that is two more projects I can cross off my list of goals, but wait there’s more… I have snuck in another two finishes that weren’t on my list of goals, woohoo! A tablecloth(which I will share photo’s of next week) and this gorgeous little bag…

100_7531 (1416 x 1064)I have another project I have been working on this week that I can’t share just yet;o) but I am having sew much fun with it!

And just because, here’s a photo of Mt Taranaki in the summertime…                                        100_7513 (1416 x 1064)

DS1 and DS2 climbed to the very top the other day! They couldn’t have asked for a better day, the view must’ve been amazing, they reckon they could see the South Island!

And to all those in Queensland, please know that our thoughts and prayers are with you.

Thankfully many of the people we know there are safe but it is heartbreaking to hear some of the stories coming through, if you would like to help at all head over here… http://www.gumtree-designers.com/2011/01/we-need-your-help.html

Wow Michelle, your kitchen looks soooo organised! Love the nets :) You've been really busy but its well worth it, looks good. Time to sew too, that's impressive. Well done to the boys on climbing the mountain. We could never manage that but we had a great time on our last trip just sitting watching the mountain, bliss.

Hello Michelle,

Oh your kitchen cupboards look so organised. The Wharehouse is such a great shop. A trip to New Zealand must involve The Wharehouse.
Have a great weekend.

The mountain is beautiful! I'd heard about the mountains in New Zealand, but never seen one. Love the little bag, too. And you were really on a cleaning tear! It feels good, doesn't it?
