Oreo helps out around the house

In My day to day on October 2, 2009 at 9:57 am

Our old fridge broke down on Monday, just another thing to go wrong with this damned rental house. Fortunately, we noticed before too much damage was done and a new fridge was delivered first thing on Tuesday. Oreo decided to help Cameron put all the food back in the new one…

In fact, Oreo is very good at helping out whenever food is involved. Her she is helping to put the groceries away…

However, I also get threated with ‘If you’re not good, Santa won’t come’. Luckily this threat has never been furfilled or I’d probably only ever wake up to lots of coal on christmas day.

This year we decided to be a little creative with our christmas decorations (as afore mentioned). This had several benefits: 1) No battling with old Mrs Bloggs over the last pack of baubles or piece of tinsel 2) not having to listen to endless screaming children, whilst parents confiscate the tenth item they have loaded into the shoppoing trolley 3)Cameron would say it kept me busy and out of his way for atleast a good few hours

We thought some of you might like to see some pictures of where we are at…
