WITL 2017 – Friday’s Stories

Today I’m focusing one being thankful.  Today was not a photo heavy day but it is still full of stories that make up our life right now.

This morning I’m thankful to little helpers. Max always gets to lick the spoon after I put the girls yogurts in the tub.

I’m thankful for crazy kids – I walked up the hall to see this, I thought she was asleep but she was only stretching out her back and told me she would stay like that so I could get a photo.  She gets the importance of the project and has taken several photos for me this week.

I’m thankful that she is getting more independent, most morning she is now making her own breakfast and even offers to make the girls.

I’m thankful for fresh new make up, I’v been thinking of getting this for a while now and yesterday it was on half price.  I like to keep my make soft and neutral.  This set has a lovely matte shadow that I loving.

I’m thankful for Stu getting a coffee when he ran to the shop to grab some bananas for the girls.

I’m thankful for school excursions, Wynter was super excited to be going to the zoo today.  I’m thankful for these experience for the girls, even though we visit the zoo often being able to learn extra things from the keepers during excursion is so much fun!

I’m thankful for having time to go home between dropping the girls at school and heading to work, some mornings I just can’t get everything done in time being leaving for school drop off.  Today Wynter needed to be at school 10 minutes earlier then normal so when I went home I made my lunch to take to work.

I’m thankful for getting to spend time in the staff room today . . .normally I only get 15minutes for lunch then out to supervise my student in the yard but today he was picked up before lunch so I got to sit in the staff room and actually chat to some of my co workers!

I’m thankful for having time to go home after work for a cuddle with Cinder and a little time to do anything I need to do . . .

I’m also thankful for Easter Eggs, I scoffed a few that I stole for the girls stash while I typed up a blog post for Wednesday’s Stories.

I’m thankful for rain because of this wet weather this afternoon will be perfect to go home and snuggle on the couch! (Photo inspo from a lady on the WITL FB page)

I’m thankful for hot chocolate and cookies and warm PJs.  We all snuggle on the couch and watch the end of Annie that we didn’t get to finish last night then they made a start on Finding Dory . . . The girls were pumped that they were allowed to watch a few movies, the first week back after the holidays is always tiring trying to get back into the swing of school.

I’m thankful for a break in the rain so I can put on a load of washing.  The laundry is downstairs and is not a very welcoming place to be so I try not to go down too often!

I’m thankful for family that get involved in this project, Z saw me cleaning the bath and grabbed my phone to take a photo.
I’m thankful for husbands who cook . . . I hate cutting up chicken.

I’m thankful for all the stories that she came home from the excursion with.  She was telling me how when they saw the frogs she saw the tiny frog jumping from one tree to the next, we have never seen them jumping before so that was a little special.

I’m thankful to have a space we were can leave out puzzles or games . . .and I’m thankful for the sleepy time spray that got Wyner to sleep even if she is on the couch instead of in bed.  I think she was so over excited from her busy day.

Project Life 2017 – weeks 4-8

You read that right we are already up to week eight of 2017! How on earth did that happen. Where is the time going!

The end of February is fast approaching, March is always a busy month for us with birthdays and the school holidays which means loads of memories to document.

I’m pretty excited to share with you all today weeks 4 through 8 of our family album for 2017.

Week 4 of 52

I have left this card blank as I need Stu to journal about his night at the tennis . . . he will happily do this but I just need to get around to asking him at the right time, which is not now as he is away for work.

This card was a Friday Freebie over at Give a Girl a Blog, grab yourself a copy here.

I’m including Stu’s pass into the tennis in this week because it completes the story and its super fun!

Week 5 of 52

Week 6 of 52

Week 7 of 52

Documenting my hobbies is one of my constants in my memory keeping, lately this is what it looks like . . .lots of reading material, both new and borrowed.

Week 8 of 52

Two of my fave elements to this weeks spread, Harper (7) journaled about her excitement at getting gymnast of the week and I cut down and added some paint splatter to my week 8 card.

Whats your memory keeping routine, do you block out some time each week or simply do what you can when you can? I’m do a little of both, some weeks I can’t get it together and it all gets forgotten about and then there are weeks when I feel on top of the world and I achieve loads.  Either way I’m getting these stories of our into our books.

Project Life 2016 – June

I’m SUPER determined to get all of our 2016 album shared with you guys  . . .I’m also determined to declutter our house, set up a homework station, read 4 books and lose 5kg but one step at a time shall we!

Looking back we did heaps in June that I hope the girls remember in years to come!

Week 23 (May 30 – Jun 5) . . .


This was the first week of winter here and up until the start of winter it had been pretty chilly and the house was not warming up with the current heart, after some looking into it turned out the heater that was in the house was actually not working at capacity so the landlord agreed to replacing it thankfully.

We also said goodbye to Harper’s teacher who was finishing up to have her much awaited bub.

Week 24 (Jun 6 -12) . . .
This week was a huge study week for me, I’d been pushing myself with the goal to start my placement hours at the start of next term, meaning I only had about 4 weeks to complete 3 modules and line up a placement school.

Week 25 (Jun 13 – 19) . . .

This week was a pretty stock standard week with the exception that we had a family party on the weekend and I went to the football with my partner in crime and craft!

Week 26 (Jun 20 – 26) . . .

The season finale of Game of Thrones was the perfect start to the last week of term for the girls . . .I love the school holidays sow e can spread some time just hanging out and doing things we love.

On the weekend we surprised the girls with a trip to wild nights at the Werribee Zoo (a safari zoo), such a fun experience seeing the see after dark, we all loved it!

Week 27 (Jun 27 – Jul 3) . . .

School holidays and boy the weather was perfect we had a day out at the Melbourne Zoo as members we don’t often stay the whole day but we were all having so much fun that we couldn’t resist.

Zahlia made up her own board game that we all spent hours playing during the 2 weeks break.

On the weekend Australia voted in yet ANOTHER Prime Minister and I headed out to a baby shower for my gorgeous friend.

Tomorrow I’ll share July, til then
