Firstly, thanks to the lovely Tanya, Pauline, Michelle and Katie for completing my tag. Katie now has her own blog so I’ll be visiting that one too!!
Now that Australia has won the Ashes, Michael has been busily doing all those “delightful” maintenance bits around the house. He’s very vocal about his mistakes but thankfully he now says them much more softly so the boys can’t hear…only me (it’s the spooky teacher hearing thing!!)
Michael is back to work on Monday and this year will be very busy with lots of traveling in the works, and the word is we may be able to join him to the U.S. later. Yay, haven’t been since 1992 so need to catch up on friends past (Michele in SF, you know who you are) and if time permits go all the way to Alicia, Jess and Erica. But we’ll see.
Rainer is back at C&K on Mondays and Tuesdays with SEDU on Wednesdays still (but not til Feb). No word from AEIOU about the intake for this year….so, we wait. At least I had a Plan B if he didn’t get in January’s intake, I would image a lot of families just crossed their fingers.
Have been organising playdates for Mackinley this week before he starts Grade 1 (YAY) and we might have the chance to go to the museum again soon. Looking forward to that. He’s very excited about choosing the contact for his books!! He wants Star Wars but if that’s going to break the budget, we might just go for the book plates instead.
Can’t bring myself to scrap again this week. Just trying to get the family back into a routine again which is really important for Rainer and my sanity (read “control freak” here) and the house cleaned and all the CRAP (and there’s a lot of it) in the bin.
Waiting patiently for the exciting news to be made public at Scrapbook City…..I’ve been offered many bribes but no chance!! If you read this and haven’t signed up to the forum, do it now and get yourself acquainted with the layout of things before it goes ballistic!!!
Won’t be long now and then I’ll be busy again!!! Feel the strange need to paint…don’t know whether it’s the canvas kind or the wall kind.
