Tuesday is the only day of the week that I don't work & it's also a day that my Junior Sprout has off kindy so it has become our day. Next year he will be at school 5 days a week just like his older brother so I really want to make the most of the one on one time I have left.
Every week I ask him what he would like to do for the day & it usually involves the same thing, heading out to a discount store to buy art supplies, puzzle books or a small toy. What I love the most about this day is that Josh always insists on buying his brother a 'surprise' for when he gets home from school & making Daddy a 'surprise' to give him after work.
There is a couple of rules for Tuesday's firstly that the maximum amount spent is $5, secondly he must be well behaved the entire time we are out or we go home immediately without buying anything (this rule has only been broken once by him!) & lastly at the end of each month one thing must be given to charity.
Today's budget was spent on transformer mask's, glow in the dark swords & some stripey pipecleaner's let the fun begin!
I'm going to really miss my Tuesday's with Joshy next year but I am sure I can think of something else to occupy my time....... maybe Mummy Tuesday's at the Day Spa!
With Google Reader shutting down later this year I have moved my blog over to Bloglovin. I am a little in love with the format of it already! & have spent the morning moving & reading all my fav blogs.

A child's imagination is a wonderful thing & I always love what games they will come up with using items found in the backyard. Our boys don't have any computer games yet, they will in the future when they are older but for now they love getting out in the yard.
Last weekend they decided to go camping so they made a wind break from Mr Sprouts tyre ramps for their 'campfire' which they made from gravel as fire is very dangerous!
This morning they have been discussing a new game, so far the required items seem to be a 4WD, a net, sticks, mud & a crocodile.
I see a lot of muddy washing ahead this weekend!

Tomorrow I turn 40 so I have spent a little time reflecting on my life today. I think I have done everything I wanted to do,I have travelled, had relationships, lived alone, worked for myself, bought my first house etc etc but I decided to google a 'before you turn 40 bucket list'.
I was pretty surprised to find that I had done nearly everything on it, number 27 is never going to happen & we don't have a Chanel store in Kalgoorlie so 35 went straight off the list too. The night is still young so there is plenty of time to get around to number 40 which only leaves me with one more that I didn't do... have a dirty secret! but I think I can live with that one :)

Each day in March a new handmade limited edition dress will be revealed for purchase at 10am with the proceeds going to World Families Australia to educate a group of children in Ethiopia.
I know where I will be at 10am each day!!
