June 2018 means school holiday fun!! With Jasper still at kindy it meant plenty of time for the two big boys to have some outings with Mummy. We had some great times at Movie World and SeaWorld, the boys loved having their photos taken with all the Characters at Movie World and going on the rides at SeaWorld. We even managed to get Addison to ride the roller coaster with us, which he’s previously been very nervous about. We also enjoyed milkshakes and muffins at the local cafe and puzzle fun at home, finishing a couple big ones – Alice in Wonderland and Cinderella.

Before finishing school the boys had their end of term disco which was a dress up night. They could go as either a Surfer or a Biker. In our house we had one of each, with Preston dressing as our surfer and Addison our biker. I think they looked fab, with their cool hairstyles to match. Some how we manged to give Addison a mow-hawk (or at least an attempt at one).

Preston is settling in very well at school and doing extremely well with all his reading. Reading like a little champ!! I got to visit his classroom and see all his work and progress for the term. I think this year is going to be amazing for him.

I tried my hand at sewing some bags this month using free patterns from Swoon. I made my first ever bag as a 80th birthday gift for my Nana. I also used some left over Dr Suess fabric from other projects to try making myself a bag. This one was more structured, using some foam interfacing for the sides and base. I really love how both of them turned out. It was really interesting to sew something that wasn’t clothing. I also made some adjustments to my Harry Potter dress, by adding straps, and the fit is much better now! I did another type of sewing this month. Something extremely special and rewarding. I was part of a large group of ladies from my church who did some sewing of reusable and sustainable maternity sanitary pads for the women of Vanuatu. It was wonderful that I could use my hobby in this way to help so many women.

Charles and I finally got to go to Aladdin, which we treated ourselves to for our anniversary (in May). We booked it for the final show at QPAC. It was really spectacular and Charles thinks it is the best one he’s been too. They did have a technical difficulty with their magic carpet but the show was still wonderful and I absolutely loved the Genie. I wore my 1950s dress that I made, and it fitted perfectly. I felt very glamours in it. I dressed up in another way this month too, this time for the school playgroup superhero day. I was their Wonder Woman! I did however try to cover up the best I could, in somewhat of a disguise with my black trench and sunglasses, sneaking the boys into school and of course it just happened to be the morning they had assembly! At least all the playgroup kids loved it, and I gave all the other school kids, parents and teachers a bit of a kick for their morning. It’s not every day you see Wonder Woman at school!
