this is why .......

If I haven't replied to an email you sent me, or a lovely comment you left on this blog, this is why .........

If you pop in for a cuppa and find there are no cups to drink from, this is why ..............

If my kids are struggling to find clean clothes and made beds, this is why ....................

If I haven't done something I should have this week, this is why ................

I was put forward to help organise some mosaic pavers for a memorial garden at mr A's preschool, seems I was the most qualified, being a person who had actually done some mosaics before. I'm no expert however.

We had a working bee last weekend where children joined in with adults to create the pavers, it was amazing how much we achieved in a short space of time. But that was only the first part. This week I spent several days at preschool preparing the pavers for grouting, which seemed to take longer than the actual grouting. Then the grouting, all with an audience of littles, asking lots of the same questions over and over again. All of them so excited and enthusiastic and as the pavers progressed, they all were so encouraging too!

I must admit after several days of non stop mosaic making, I'm a bit over it.
