One returns, One leaves, One Library!

Hello Peeps, 

I'm back at last!!!

Miss H finished her last days of university for this year last week. Then the Mother came down and helped us pack up and return to Auckland. Next was the big tidy and fitting everything back into place. Whew!!!

But now I am back and ready to show you some projects Miss H has been working on in between everything she has been doing. And of course Snowy will still show what the Mother has been up to - other than tidying (the place is still a mess and it is all the Mother's - hee...hee...hee...)

Now that she is back in her own room, Miss H set about turning it into her dream room - a library bedroom!

These book shelves contian her DVD's, CD's, childhood books from when she was in primary school, animal books and magazines, romance, and Biblical books. 
Can you see her vintage camera collection? The Brownie camera was her grandmothers (it may still work but Miss H doesn't know how to use it...).

Of course Miss H has a supply of quilting/stitchery books and magazines. They are supervised by Chester who would not let me anywhere near them in case I slobbered on them. 

This whole bookshelf is devoted to Miss H's classics collection - she LURVES classics. 
The books sitting on the table to the right of the picture are the books Miss H got for university. 

These folders are chocka-block full of readings from some of Miss H's courses this year. Whew, it was a lot of reading (and a lot of boredom and chocolate eating for me...)!

And one of the best parts - the window seat! This area has all the picture books that Miss H has started collecting (and maybe a couple she pinched from the Mother's bookshelf...).

Finally, some big BIG BIG news!

The Geek's childhood friends - he no longer plays with them (just letting you know so the Geek doesn't get annoyed at Miss H). I rescued them and they are MY friends now and won't be returning to the dungeon I dug them out from!

Mousey and Mammoth's owner - who is the Geek - is moving out of home for the first time. He has a job in Wellington (NZ's capital) and so he's moving down there before the 5th of December which is his first day. 
Next year when Miss H goes back to Tauranga the Mother will have no children at home - for the first time in over 21 years!

  1. there is something pretty amazing when the kids are all out living their lives, a couple sad moments, but soon replaced with peace and quiet and a cleaner in the fridge, sink not full of dishes...wellllll that is what happened to us..and then we sold our very large home and built a really small one so they could not come back lol...Enjoy being an empty is pure JOY!

  2. ...and the revolving door begins. I know I cried buckets when our oldest one went off to college and shed a few more when the youngest one went. It was even harder when the youngest moved clear across the country. Must say I now enjoy the empty nest, but it was rocky there for awhile. At least you, Baa, have some good playmates to keep you company.
