I am a day late, but Happy Chinese New Year to you. Yesterday I was busy with My Creative Space and checking out all the other ones. It is now the year of the rabbit.
This week I am ever so grateful for the Chinese New Year. It has meant Chris got two public holidays in Hong Kong, and he came home to Melbourne to see us. We are loving having him home. Abbey wont let him out of her sight. There have been lots of cuddles and smiles. Sunday will be difficult, when he has to leave. I am trying not to think about it.
I am grateful, that while Chris has been home playing with the girls, I have managed to get some more packing and sorting done. Some more stuff was taken to the op shop, it feels so good. There is still a long way to go until the girls and I can move to Hong Kong.
I am grateful kinder has started for Abbey - she loved her first interview session, and while I was busy talking to her teacher, she was off making two new friends - I am so proud of her. I hope to get lots of packing and sorting done while she is off at kinder.
This afternoon, I am grateful my mum was able to look after Zoe, so Chris and I could take Abbey to see Tangled the movie.
How cute are these kids training chop sticks? Of course, they have been popular with Abbey as they are pink.
So many grateful peeps over at Maxabella Loves.
Have a lovely weekend.
Such cute little chopsticks. Have you got the kids in training for Hong Kong?! Do you have a date when you'll all move over or are you waiting until you are all packed up and ready? Feeling for you with all of your single parenting at the moment - it's tough work.ReplyDelete
I saw some chopsticks just like these yesterday. And almost bought them. They are so adorable. What a good excuse to buy them. Chinese New Year. Perhaps I should read up on it more so we have another something to celebrate. Good excuse hey? And when do you move to be with hubby? Oh Cat, it's such a big move! Thinking of you as you work through the separation for a while... xxReplyDelete
Did you like Tangled?? My fav movie of the summer...actually did LOL!ReplyDelete
hugs for sunday - did the different city thing for 3 years (before kiddies though)
Happy Rabbit! Such a cute blog you have here! We're late to celebrate as well but will be making some dumplings this weekend.ReplyDelete
Tangled was a great movie, I shed a tear or two!ReplyDelete
Have a wonderful weekend with your Hubby & girls while he is here. x
Yay im off to celebrate Chinese New Year tonight in the Valley.ReplyDelete
So happy your hub made it home for a long weekend. We have a new Kinder starter at our place too. I can't believe Cappers is in big school! It has gone really well (a few tears for the first couple of days, but she found her stride).ReplyDelete
Those chopsticks are so cute! As was Tangled. Once I got over how scarily big Rapunzel's eyes were, I was okay.
Happy new year. x
As one who is a Year of the Rabbit girl though not this actual year obviously ;) I am hoping for a good year ahead. I'll be thinking of you on Sunday xReplyDelete
lovely things to be grateful for. Love the bunny photo. CharmaineReplyDelete
I just bought our second set of these chopsticks as our Little Bro now demands his turn with set #1. The best thing about them is I can ditch the sticks and take the more compact helper in my handbag to whip out when we end up eating at a chopstick-requiring restaurant. The helper will hold most restaurant chopsticks.ReplyDelete
So happy for you that you got another two days with him...that's a big trip for two days at home. Happy Chinese New Year to you all!ReplyDelete
Coolest chopsticks ever!! I love them, how much fun.ReplyDelete
As a year of the Rabbit girl, thanks, loving it!! Love Posie
glad you got some chris time on the weekend! let us know if you want any help won't you?? we can pop over one weekend and entertain the girls if you need to get some more packing done. let us know! xx melReplyDelete
Great list! and what pretty chopsticks!ReplyDelete
Hi! Funnily enough I was just thinking about you the other day and wondering if you'd moved yet (err, sorry I haven't been to your corner of the interweb for a while). Glad to hear you had a happy start to your very own Chinese New Year... hope you will be all reunited properly soon xReplyDelete
We're head over heels with those chopsticks too! I so hope that weekend was glorious and as drawn out as possible. Best of luck with that packing bizzo...ReplyDelete
