What happened to the holidays?

School is back tomorrow!  What happened to the holidays? They flew right past so quickly!  So just so you all know that I’m still in the land of the living here is a quick summary of what we got up to….

Ditched the playroom and gave Owen his own bedroom – still getting them all cleared out of crap and sorted….new curtains/blinds will hopefully be up in a week or two.  I still need to replace Bretts broken tallboy (Corey opened the drawers and used it for a ladder and broke it).  Owen having his own room also led to another plus – he has his own dirty wash basket and has now (for a month) been responsible for doing his own washing, so far he hasn’t run out of clean clothes….am proud of my boy.

Discovered that I actually CAN start a lawnmower….bought one – it’s orange and it is pretty easy to start and doing a good job…am gradually taming the overgrown grass and reclaiming my yard.

Saw lots of Lee and his son Ryan over the holidays – mostly at his place. Not having enough seats in the car means we can’t just hop in the car and hit the road…

And the exciting news – yesterday I found an ad on gumtree selling a dickie seat for $200 – a good one with 2 seats and retractable seatbelts. Am going to pick it up on Friday morning and then it will be fitted into the back of the wagon and we will have wheels and be able to go places all 6 of us!

Uni is plodding along – 4 weeks left til the exam (assignment due on Monday week) not enjoying this unit at all (info systems) looking forward to the new one (aboriginal culture).

    Sounds like things are going along well!! Wow Owen does his own washing?! Thats fantastic. M makes his own lunch for school and has various jobs around the house for pocket money but that’s not one that we have introduced yet. I am impressed!
    Yey re the Dickie seat and being able to all go out now!
    Thanks for the wifi hotspot help, it worked perfectly and saved us having to spend money again on the old mobile broadband stick!!
    All the best for Uni
