I'm getting a dog!...

I am super exited about this and just had to share it with you all.
I'm getting a dog! Ben finally gave in to me and yesterday we paid the
deposit and saw a photo of our new baby(he was born on Sunday). He
hasn't got a name yet but he is a cream Labradoodle. We get to pick
him up at Christmas time. Woo hoo.

Anyone got any idea's for a name??

What a day!...

I have had a terrible day! my students have gone completely mad. M did
a 'goona' (poo) in the back yard and one of the other kids stepped in
it. And one of my other kids W bit one of the other kids because he
called him a 'salty plum' (big deal!) and then told me to f*** off and
told me that I was a mother F***** and ran home, so then I had to
chase him all the way to his house and drag him back to school! FAR

Who would have thought that such a cute little face could be so crazy!

i'm in love...

One of my favourite blogs 'oh joy' introduced me to Lauren Moffatt
today and she has now become one of my favourite designers!
The new collection called 'Honeymooner' was inspired by a dress that
used to hang in her mothers closet that she once wore on her
honeymoon. Im a very sentimental person and have boxes of special
things that remind me of special times in my life. The wardrobe in my
spare room if full of clothes that i have warn on a special accession
such as weddings and birthdays. I love to look through it and be
reminded of special times gone by.
I will be adding one of Lauren Moffatt's dresses to my 'wish list'.

Oh Olivia...

So i have had a little girl crush on Olivia Palermo for a little while now, I love her style and the way she wears those statement necklaces!... anyone that knows me would tell you that i love a good statement necklace!

And to top that off, she has the most amazing apartment!..... I want those chairs.

I will admit though that i don't really like her ignorance and attitude towards a lot of things but i am giving her the benefit of the doubt, and I think that maybe its just the way that 'the city' want us to see her.


PS. I think the blond hair is way better Olivia.

fun times...

I just wanted to share with you a couple of funny stories from work. You know how kids just say what they think, and they think for real funny stuff like this:
A boy in my class had a little cut on his foot so he asked for a band aid. I put one on and he began to see the blood through his band aid. He looked up at me and said "miss, is that sucking up my blood?" I said "Well yeah a little, just the blood that’s coming out" He looked shocked and replied "but miss, I won’t grow big"!

I don’t normally wear makeup to school but today I felt like I needed just a little bronzer and mascara. When I got to school and the kids were sitting on the mat listening to me read a story one little boy asked "miss, you didn’t have a shower" I was confused and said "yes, I had one before I came to school" I had no idea what he was on about, did I smell? Then he said, "Well what’s on your face"!

Kids are just too cute sometimes!

I love stationary! and i have for a very long time.  My favourite thing about starting school each year was getting new books and pencils and I have often thought of the idea of opening a shop that sells amazing paper and cards and beautiful things for your office. So when it came to my wedding it was something i cared a lot about. I was super lucky to have an extremely talented friend, who was also a bridesmaid design it all for me, she knows me so well and was able to design it all just the way i wanted without even having to tell her. I would have been totally lost without her! She has just finished our thank you notes and they will be going into the post this week, yay! 
Thank you Claudia!
