Entry for 27 November 2007 – St Aiden’s Updates

Posted in donnette e davis on November 27, 2007 by Donnette E Davis

Hello everyone!

Well a busy week behind us and things looking exciting for the festive season. Our word family ebook uploads are going well, if not a little slowly. When downloading please bear in mind that the books are between 40 and 100 pages each. I have not specified the size of each online but they vary from between 400 kb to over 3 MB. The books can we accessed at

Updates to Christmas are many, and there will be more in the next few days. For now I have the most exciting collection of free downloadable eBooks at

These include Christmas decor, a Beautiful vintage Christmas Countdown, Christmas cookie recipes, Christmas colouring book for kids, The Big Book of Christmas Tales, and A Homemade Christmas which is a beautifully presented electronic ebook covering every imagineable festive meal.

You can also find a Christmas Carolling Kit which has lyrics, music and graphics and is an absolute joy.

At you will find even more free ebooks and Christmas related activities that are a worthy addition to any collection.

Printables such as notebooking pages and scrapbooking pages can be accessed from the main Christmas pages, and check back in a few days as more units such as phonics and Christmas maths activities will be added, as well as the cutest printable Christmas puzzles.

Those are the updates for now, I will send out another update mail during the course of next week. I am so pleased that the uploads are going smoothly, and I want to thank the many folk who have taken the time out to write to me with their suggestions, comments and compliments over the new activity books. I appreciate all feedback.

Until later, I wish you all a safe and happy week, and look forward to interacting again soon.

Entry for 20 November 2007

Having been MIA for a few weeks it’s great to be back on fast i/net, not the exceptionally painfully frustratingly slow interim modem I was using wooohooo!! Thanks Nadia at Telkom PE for sorting it out finally!!!

The last month has been full of everything, trees falling on roof, getting roof fixed, new pool finally finished, getting car back after 2 months without it, return of large posh pc screen that has been in for repair twice and still under gaurantee, last but not least the brand new cell phone that went for a swim has also been repaird after I was told it was beyond economical repair… duh??? – okay so the washing machine, tumble drier, new kettle, kitchen door that decided to break my left arm (well almost) and cupboard have all gone to heaven!!! but things are looking up *grin*

Jess is off to Dubai next week for a 2year contract. Doey left 3 weeks ago for Pretoria to stay with her half sister. Derek turned 25 on 0n November but is still in Durban. House is big and empty and will be lonely without all the kids, but HRH Aiden Daniel Mark keeps us on our toes, with Sav and River at his beck and call… his latest is copying everything on TV, his fave ad being “Shut Up Bob” – the Getz ad… aaaaw picture me shouting at him just befoe he flings himself (very gently) onto a blanket on the floor – only for him to look up and say “Shuuuuppppppp Bob!” I’m sure he’ll soon realise it’s not really a cool thing to say to mum – but for now it is so so so so so cute…. everything he does is cute – my little superhero…. getting bigger, busier and more inquisitive!

Kids are looking foward to Christmas, 3 years ago this time I was looking forward to Thanksgiving!!!! If only….
