No Playgroup for Us Today but We did do a Tuesday Tackle instead

I had just dropped Billy at school and was on my way to playgroup when I heard a strange noise from the back seat. I looked in my rear vision mirror and saw an unhappy Daniel with vomit all over him. I pulled over and wiped him up a bit. Drove the rest of the way to the playgroup told them I wouldnt be there today and why. I help set up and am usually the first one there so I felt it was important to let them know as quickly as I could that I wouldnt be there.

Then we went home. I gave Daniel a nice warm bath which he loves. He knows the word bath and gets excited. He seems ok apart from a yukky nappy. Washed his car-seat and decided that while I was at home and while it is Tuesday here today best get stuck into my Tuesday Tackle for this week.

Over the last few days Janice has been writing a 2 part blog entry about procrastination and I hang up my head in shame and confess I am one too. Janice has been running Tackle it Tuesday since May 26 last year and I have at last to join them.

My Hall

I have been thinking this area has been a problem for a while. We are busy and probably lazy and instead of the dirty clothes getting around the corner to the laundry they tend to get thrown in here. My excuse is that I thrown things in here in the rush of looking after Daniel. Poor excuse A????

Also I have wanted to clean out this cupboard for sometime. I think it contains my photo album.

So here are the before photos (I hang up head in shame)


and the after shots and YES I did find my photo album so at some stage I will be able to load them on to the computer and blog about them. We also have a new rule that dirty washing goes in the basket in the hall. I also hang a new curtain shower up that I found 🙂

How often do I update my blog?


How often do I comment on other people’s sites


How often do I change the layout of our site?

Yhe basic layout stays the same. I add buttons as I find me that interest me

Do I ever feel guilty that I don’t reciprocate comments or don’t I really care?

sometimes but I go visit the commenter even if I don’t say anything to them on my blog

How many sites on average do I visit daily and of those, how many do I comment on?

I visit 12 sites that aren’t blogs and so I don’t comment on them

They are sites like Trademe, Stuff, my Bible    readings and my email programmes

Of blogs I have 25 (I must say this has been radically reduced in the last few months) so I don’t get bogged down and this way I feel I can build better friendships with my chosen 22 people and their families. I comment on most of their blogs everyday.

The Rules

Each player of this game starts with 6 weird things about you. People who get tagged need to write a blog of their own 6 weird things as well as state this rule clearly. In the en, you need to chose 6 people to be tagged and list their names. Don’t forget to them them.


1. I’m gullible – don’t get any ideas that wouldn’t be fair!!!

2 When I lived in Auckland I would go round the long way to avoid roundabouts

3 Fluorescent lights give me headaches – I don’t like them

4 I use to be a night owl, now I’m not really a night owl nor have I ever liked getting up in the morning. Is it possible to be an afternoon person?

5 I use to suck my thumb till I got braces (13 years old) and found it was too much of a mouthful

6 I cant stand unsweetened yogurt (but would live on the normal type if I could), mustard, pickles, gherkins and beer

I don’t know if these are really all that weird but I think I’m pretty normal so this was a hard meme

I’m going to tag Melany, Amy, Furry Hurricane – Christina‘s cat, Janice, Lil duckduck,Michelle

~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~* ~

I’m the prayer warrior and I do pray for you all but Ive been thinking recently I should record the prays I am praying for you all. So every time from now on that I blog I’m going to include prayers in my posts. This will also allow you to pray for these people if you so wish.


Today I’m praying for these people.
