Orphanage Christmas Party.

 Excuse me, but how utterly Gorgeous is this snap of my little boy (on the right) with his friend from the Orphanage little C (on the left) ??
I know. They are just too adorable for words. I hope they'll get to be in the same class next year.
The Orphange Christmas party was nice. I baked some triple choc brownies to take along.
They were the Business.

 Wore some OPI shorts story
 And I channeled a ginger jar. It seemed the Sensible thing to do.
 This was Me:

 After all that excitement this one practically fell asleep on my friend M
I used my Time Wisely at the Orphanage Party. 
I arranged an end of year drinks event for next week for the Mothers and the Excellent Orphange Teacher. 
Can't wait.
 Can I just say that we hit the jackpot when we got the Baby a place at this particular Orphanage. The staff are just brilliant and he loves it there. So lucky.
Righto, I'm off to action my Fanksgiving Meal (turkey, ham, pies, the Whole 9 yards)
But 1st I might make myself a burger for lunch.
Because that's just how I roll.
What are you up to?

  1. Young Master FF is truly adorable with his little friend C! That brings back memories... When Miss M was of Orphanage age, we were lucky enough to hit the jackpot too. Fabulous place, wonderful caring staff, and she loved it! I have never ceased to be grateful that we had a win in the whole Child Care Crapshoot. (She's now 23 - where did those years go?)

    Still loving your blog as always, and admiring your productivity! xx

    1. We are so lucky carly. You hear horror sories but all our teachers are kind and generous. Childcare workers are underpaid and overworked and they do an AMAZING job of caring for our precious children.I cannot speak highly enough of the staff at the kindy.

  3. That's so sweet. It's so lovely when they make a special friend, and it makes them so eager to go which is a bonus. Outfit is lovely as always. That's nice you've met all the other mothers too..... I literally never met the ones at my children's, drop off times were all over the shop, so wouldn't often see them. Enjoy fanksgiving. xx

    3. Dear FF,
      I can't tell you how worried I was. I have been commenting at a rate of knots and not properly re reading, a slip on my part, and I thought oops I've done a boo boo.
      The world is still on its axis and I can sleep more now. Thank you FF for your reply.
      Have a good sleep, B. x

  5. Gorgeous shot of Baby FF - it is so lovely seeing our precious darlings embrace their buddies!

    This weekend is filled with organising/decorating for my Pre Primary Mum's lunch that I am hosting on Monday - like you, we decided that such a busy year deserves some "mummy" quality catch up time over a "banquet with some bubbles". I am looking forward to a relaxing day after caring for a child struck down with Scarlet Fever this week - how they worry us sometimes!!

    enjoy your dinner tonight!

    1. Update on the day - ventured out for a quick trip to Spotlight for some fabric to make table cloth for Monday's lunch - saw a cushion I liked, so in true FF style, I bought 3 of them!!! Plus I added some sparkly fabric to the trolley and then received a 25% discount at the checkout - BIG day out!!

  6. Dear Ms FF, Such a wonderful photo of Little FF and his friend. I was astonished at the authentic warmth and caring of the orphanage we had our girls at in Camberra a million years ago too. I think that good and loving people are drawn to the caring professions. You always make me laugh when you channel a ginger jar! I am applying nail polish right now - one has to keep oneself nice! I hope the Fanksgiving was lovely. love Lindaxxx

  8. Adorable. My little girl and her bestie will be in different rooms next year as said bestie is a couple of months older and starts school earlier. I am mega sad about this. My little one doesn't know yet but there may be tears.

  9. Oh FF, those two look SO content and happy together chilling by the tree! The photo is adorable. Master FF looks tall (if he and C are the same age)...

    Your energy is boundless - well done you for arranging another party, seems like a perfect reason to party to me.

    I've just got up to start my Saturday - we will be having a quiet one at home, just fed the ducks it's frosty outside!

    Enjoy your thanksgiving meal, have a great day.

  10. Love the photo, too cute for words, nothing like a bro hug at that age. Love how you know your boy is living and learning lots. I am with you about childcare like a lottery - I am due back at work in Feb and only managed to hit the jackpot by finally scoring a place. Only after calling and having a whine and practically begging. I hope the place I take my daughter is good because I don't have any other choice!!

  12. FF, I insist you divulge a)how you find the time to roll out dinners worthy of royalty while still looking glamorous ie. do you sleep? and b)how you manage to stay whippet thin while consuming said dinners??? I must know! and then replicate!

  13. I am so glad baby FF (or should that now be Master FF, he's all grown up now!!) is having a great time at daycare. His photo with his little friend made me smile!

    Have fun at drinks next week!

  18. Hi FF!
    I need your advice: I fell in love with this dress:
    http://www.cosstores.com/Store/Women/All/Draped_pleat_dress/7084-4420504.1#6239726
    It looks heavenly and I feel like a greek godess wearing ist. But are pleats a good investment? Or will they be around for some more seasons?

  19. This could blossom into something special Miss FF. I kept in touch with a preschool friend through the years, through our parents. We both moved around the country a bit. And then the planets aligned and we ended up living very close and sent both our boys to preschool together and they became friends! Very Lion King of me I thought.

  21. I can't believe how fast he's growing up! Slow dowwwwnnnnn! I want to share that my daughter and I saw the last of the Twilight movies today, it is the best one imo. Then we shopped till we dropped and get to enjoy one of the best parts of Th/Fanksgiving dinner - the left overs! Enjoy -

  26. Hitting the jackpot Orphanage wise is huge. You are lucky there are so many horror stories out there. They do christmas early though, it almost retail like.
