Friday Favourites: The One About The Dump Truck

Friday Favourites:
The One About The Dump Truck

The One With The Dump Truck

I feel like I had a great week this week. I really buckled down and stopped procrastinating about things – I tidied up the house, did loads of washing, cooked proper meals and I feel really good for it.

What has been your favourite thing about this week?  Check out my five things:


1. Diggers

Construction has started behind our house, of a new subdivision, and my kids absolutely love it. In particular my son. Last weekend the site manager invited us over to check out the machines; and my kids (and husband) had such a blast. They sat in the digger, and my boy honked the horn (awkward) … and then got to take a ride in the MASSIVE dump truck. They had so much fun.


2. Pete’s Dragon

I got given a couple of tickets to see Pete’s Dragon, and since I didn’t think it was appropriate for my kids (2 and 4), I took my husband along and we had a blast! It was an amazing movie (although I personally didn’t think it needed to be in 3D), and when it comes out on DVD I’ll be buying it for the kids. I loved it, and it felt like it would be a great movie for when the kids are a wee bit older.

If you have kids of an appropriate age, I definitely recommend seeing it! It was filmed right here in New Zealand too!


3. Hot Water Bottle

One of my closest friends is my hot water bottle. It comforts me at night when I’m cold, and joins me for a cup of coffee first thing in the morning. I don’t know where I’d be without my hot water bottle. Honestly – AMAZZZZZINGGGG!


4. The Sunshine

FINALLY the sun has come out and it’s been WARM (during the day). I have loved being able to actually wash AND dry the clothes (even though I f’ing despise doing the laundry). I feel like I have my life in control when the washing is sorted.


5. Kmart (yet again)

Yet again Kmart has come to my rescue. Last week I lost the plot because the house was a f’ing mess and cluttered. This week I went out and bought some storage solutions from Kmart and had a huge tidy up. It’s been amazing. I still have some more things to do, but am so glad I had got cracking on it.
