The one where the Jehovah’s Witnesses took pity on me

Two Jehovah’s Witnesses came a calling today. They took one look at me, the pingus and my walls full of taped up kid art and told me they wouldn’t keep me from my nursery. Gave me a couple of Watchtowers and sprinted over the lawn.

On the one hand relieved not to have to get rid of them myself but on the other hand my kids weren’t even crying! I didn’t look that harassed! Also, I’ve only got the two toddlers. I guess they’ll be back in 15 years when I can hold down a conversation.

Today was much better, energy levels returning to normal. Whilst I did a quick bit of sewing after breakfast they built New York and rockets out of blocks, then took photos of themselves with the rocket.



We got out for a good long cycle, and found interesting seed pods and collected some twigs for snowmen arms. Zoey excitedly told one of the neighbors about collecting twigs for snowmen arms. Yeah, they are really excited for snow. Don’t worry kids it’s hangs around for months here.



When we got home it was a quick snack and then back out to compost. Zoey and Nomi are very excited about building leaf composting areas in the garden. We ran into some issues as the soil isn’t very deep in the front garden so we are switching plans and building it in the back in an abandoned raised bed. So that’s tomorrow’s outdoor project.


Nomi decided to wear my test beanie out in the garden so we now have a gnome!

We finished up the day with some baking, tape cutting and a melt down on what constitutes acceptable dancing at 5pm on a Wednesday.

    I’m curious. What does constitute acceptable dancing at 5pm on a Wednesday?

      As per Zoey’s instructions I had to change out of jeans and into a skirt to twirl, change the music (all saints instead of Annie Lennox), hold hands on the rug and dance in a circle BUT no singing! Me thinks she was a little tired.

    What? I think that sounds perfectly reasonable. Maybe you were tired, huh? 😉
