today: nothing escaped the chop!!

Greetings all,
Well in my last-day-before-school-resumes-Edward-Scissorhands mania, nothing around the house, garden or family was safe . . . i made nice with my lawn mower (bless this mower, it cold starts first time, without ripping out my chest).  Off i went, mowing in wonky lines across the nature strip, front garden & back garden with a neat end result. 
Next stop . . . that German Shepherd needs a good wash & massage, so he was tied to the clothes line (he loves the massage, not so hot on the cold water part) & yes, we all finished up saturated from his shakes & well, poorly managed hose skills from my twins!!  It was Khan's 2nd birthday this week, he's fully grown now, no scale required, he's MASSIVE. 
Then between grocery shopping & swimming, my son got his short back & sides hair cut at the military barber shop.  He loves it in there, the men, the Army photos, the toy tanks, the swearing (thankfully in heavy Irish accents he can not understand) it's his little taste of man land.  

We're all set to return to school, shoes/ uniforms/ lunches & i have all the prizes from my blog giveaway done . . . I'll reveal the 5 winners tomorrow.  Good luck & to those of you who like me, seem to have the very last children in the country still on school holidays, enjoy tomorrow!!  I've already managed to get myself invited to a meeting (canteen), a morning tea with a lovely mummy, then lunch with my best Army wife gal pal!!  Yippee!!  Just as i plan to get back to work in the studio child free . . . i'm happily distracted with adult company.  Yes please.  I'm so lucky to have really great friends.  Love Posie

All the very best for tomorrow, within a couple of days the holidays will become distant memories, it happens so quickly once we hit school routines.
I too find I am so easily distracted by 'offers' which equal adult conversation, company and good coffee!! Enjoy your Tuesday :)

Sometimes the holidays go so quick and then they seem like forever ago. But sounds like you have everything covered.

Have fun at school, Posie-kids!
Your dog is gorgeous, I have a real soft spot for Shepherds. We have a White Swiss Shepherd, who is also massive.

However it pans out, enjoy your day!

Just when we think we have "free" time something else comes up , lucky you're spending it with nice people . Love that haircut on that handsome boy !

Stacey said...

Wow, he is a big Shepherd. We had one as a kid and he was a lovely boy, even if he did take a liking to the neighbours sheep...

Too funny! Thanks for the giggle. I sent the kids unshaven for the first start-of-school-year EVER. Just call me a 2010 rebel (with no cause).
