My Red Shoes

Red shoes are my all time favourite piece of attire.  So after reading and thinking and realising how much I love them, I have decided I am going to start a thrifting mission to find some lovely ones in my size!  A bit of fun and something quirky for me to think about!  I bought these a couple of years ago and haven't worn them lately - yesterday I pulled them out and felt so special and lady-like!  I think red goes with everything!

My positive attitude that resounds in my blog really helps me to get through the day.  I snapped this shot of Master J cleaning the bathroom yesterday.  I have been feeling really flat at how difficult it is to keep on top of the house being maintained.  I don't care for it to be spotless, but really - I am a tad fed up with my boys messes of wee, spit, snot and mmmm...  wee, spit and snot.  Master J has been soiling the bathroom floor and both boys just trash the bathroom on almost a bi-hourly basis.  Yesterday I really had had enough.  I showed Master J how to clean the mirror with just water and a cloth.  Wow he was excited.  It turned my mood around to see him enjoying himself so much.  If I teach the kids and let them, they are so capable.  They really do enjoy lending a helping hand!  

The sunglasses are Master J's latest obsession.  At carols on Sunday evening, Master J was wearing them until nightfall.  Sometimes I feel sad to watch my boys quirky autistic behaviours, and other times it makes me feel so blessed.

Master J was the Forest Gump of rolling across grass on carol night.  I have never seen anyone roll and roll and roll for so long.  Then he came to an abrupt stop to do push-ups.  This all happened amidst about 30 other children playing tiggy and running games.  I figure this was his way of fitting in!

The children and I had a delightful thrifting morning and found this hilarious bunny rabbit!  Each time I saw it - I thought it was real.  I did put it in the vintage shed - however if it has not sold will bring it home and knit a cardi for it!  

He may become our little Beatrix like pet.  Master S and I are reading our Beatrix Potter collection - I love the innocence of her books.  It is so delightful and I love to see Master S's eyes light up even still at the age of 9.

Tomorrow I will share with you my Christmas gift list and maybe a house update! xo
