Thankfulness - Day 8

Today I am thankful for:

- the fun that is crazy hair day at school;

- one child with manageable hair - you would think crazy hair day would be perfect for Ashlea as it is her hair's natural state - but alas my attempt at a pink mohawk was a total fail;

- a few hours child / husband / appointment free;

- black gold - how it has taken a whole week for Pepsi Max to make it onto the list I'll never know;

- the escape that is Thursday night shopping;

- another gift card in the mail;

- another little boy receiving a new kidney right now;

- funding $$ available that make it possible to buy Ashlea a touch screen computer to do her school work on;

- free ipad apps;

- an invitation to the Bear Cottage Christmas party.

What are you thankful for today?

Pink and orange hair is a lovely cheerful choice. This evening it's:
1. Getting home again - no wild cat but presumably he's hiding somewhere safe as storms about.
2. Two days by the sea with no cooking to do - yee haa
3. An evening completely restfully alone with the iPad, a simple dinner, the TV and an early night.

Heda - that evening sounds perfect!

love the hair and the beautiful girl x
i am keen to learn which touch screen system you are getting?
we really need to head down the eye gaze path but will look into that next year x

Bron - just getting a regular PC with touch screen. Haven't looked into eye gaze as Ashlea has pretty good hand control so don't need it - but a little boy in Ashlea's class has one. Happy to put you in touch with his mum (she might read this at some point too...maybe she'll comment...)

Anna said...

Love the hair! Love that you got a few hours free time.

Haha loving the hair - I'm intrigued to see what Ashlea's ended up like...

Bron...I have some experience with the eye gaze system :) the little boy I worked with uses it

Alison said...

Thanks Anna.

T - Ashlea's had so much gel in it but wouldn't stick up so I ended up plastering it down to her head.
