~ we were able to get the subject choices for our eldest daughter final years at school (Years 11 & 12) on her preference list, and I think she will get her choices or pretty close to them. This is great considering the size of the school.
~ our middle daughter got some clothes in the mail, and they were all good and fit well
~ my husband and son managed to move a Japanese maple that is a good size to a spot by the fish pond where it will have more room to grow. We were able to keep warm. I spent some time by the fire watching Flight 29 Down with the girls and I thought the show was fantastic
~ the kids experimented with making a 5 minute microwave cake in an icecream cone instead of a mug. The icecream cone one is a proper recipe using packet cake mix. So now we have a homemade version that we all enjoyed.
~ I was honored to watch Deborah 13: Servant of God on TV
~ I survived an 8 oC day with only a little bit of cold feet and hands
~ our eldest daughter won a scholarship to another country, she submitted a video of her speaking a language she is learning, in this country she will be able to practise her language skills and go to normal school
~ my Mum is helping me with appropriate dress for my daughter to take overseas with her and my husband did the paperwork
~ I got a great recipe to use up my frozen raspberries
