Proud mum

So I’m feeling pretty proud of my son he found $20 on the ground at work the other night and instead of pocketing it as some of his colleagues suggested, he handed it in to the office. 
This is the same boy that at the age of 3 walked out of a play date with another little boy’s toy matchbox car. 

I remember threatening that the police would be coming to our house and I remember taking him back to that house and making him apologise as he handed back the toy car. I can also remember how worried and scared for him I was. How ridiculous to ever for a second think that he could be anything but perfect!! Sure the teenage years can be challenging, sure it sometimes feels like I am banging my head against a brick wall when I try to get through to him how important school is, but when all is said and done he was a beautiful cheeky perfect little boy at 3, and he has grown into an amazing young man now at almost 17. Yep I’m feeling pretty proud!! 

Bargain buys 

Am I the only one that simply can’t resist a bargain?? There is just something about sales that makes them irresistible!Take tonight for example, I brought a cute top and an assortment of under garments that were just too pretty to resist!! Do I need them? Of course not! Is there room for them in my wardrobe?? Ummmmm nope, but I’ll make some room, they were a bargain after all!! 

Work placement 

My hubby is starting his job placement tomorrow!! It’s rather exciting but also a little scary. After years of working in the shipping industry he has decided to change his career and is currently working his way through a certificate 3 in aged care. Tomorrow will be his first real day on the job,so to speak. Fingers crossed he enjoys it. I’m hoping it will be all he imagines it to be and more. Many people are offered employment during their placement, that’s what we are hoping for.Hopefully I’ll have good news to share in the next few weeks.
