It's fun and games here people! I've gone into a crazy, spring cleaning frenzy and decided to start with the kitchen, doing a deep clean which was needed.
You know, getting into those hidden spots that don't get alot of attention! My kitchen is now sparkling, and if anyone explodes anything in the microwave oven, they will be in trouble.
Today is the first day of school holidays. Two weeks of fun and frivolity.
I've already confiscated the kids Ipods, Xbox, dvd players and anything else technology related. Yes the first day has been a hoot!
The kids have been, as we like to call it, acting ugly. A bit of whining here, a raised voice there. I take an ipod away, the kid plugs in a music usb stick. I take that away, the same kid plays loud cds. I take the cds away and pass her a broom, see, fun and games!
I wonder could I do a technology free holiday, I don't think so, I'd probably go mad! I think the trick is to limit their xbox time and get their little personalities outside! Which is what they did this afternoon. They packed drinks and snacks and headed off down the paddock to the fruit trees, where they picked the remaining mandarins and oranges.
As I like to keep an eye on them when they are walking around the farm, I used the biniculars to find them down at the flying fox over the dam, sitting on the cement wall eating Nutrigrain!
This photo is from 2011, they love this space! As do I! It's very peaceful and beautiful, with a little creek running through the trees.
It's a great place to explore.
