Re: Basically it's a Very Wet Wednesday

I'm thinking it's going to be a really long summer holiday for Derry. School has only been finished for a few hours and she's already telling me she doesn't know what to do.


I think I'm going to have to come up with some sort of a time table for them.

Awww sorry Mel.

Heiner and I were talking about it a little while ago. I said James or George...but I said it probably wont be James because he'd be King James (and that's a bible, isn't it?) so I was thinking George.

Fynn will be pleased...or he would be if he was aware of such things.

Well, now she is going. She is the only one invited that was able to go because of the fair. Meh. Your idea looks cute Mel, now to find a store that sells towels - NO, I am not kidding.

Re: Basically it's a Very Wet Wednesday

My difficulty is that the kids have varying needs/likes/dislikes and I still have to work.

My energy levels are crap and I tend to hurt a lot after work...and I have to save up energy to be able to work. I cant do things that cost me too much expended energy. The chances are that my body will react badly and I'll be in agony are sadly just too high.

So that means on my working days I'm limited.

I'll have to try my best to find things to do on my days off that aren't too hard on me but are still fun for them. And doable in the heat.

Shannon has this week + a fortnight of Hort to go so she wont be at home.

Derry is the only kid I have at home this week.

And when I have DCF home I'm going to have to make sure Fynn gets his naps. He is a monster if he doesn't get his naps.

Sounds good.

Heiner and I got towels for our wedding gift from a neighbour and they are still good. It might seem odd but I think it's a fun gift with the ribbon and magazine/sunscreen. Maybe some gummy sweets?

Re: Basically it's a Very Wet Wednesday

I forgot to tell you. This morning I went to open the balcony door and saw a humming bird...it was flitting about in the lavender on the balcony.

Very cool!

Totally made up for the fact that the kids were up and had spread cereal crumbs through the whole flat before I got up at 6am!

What do you have close to you? Here you can get towels even at the dollar store.

Cool on the hummingbird, Janine!

well, 18 miles away there is a hardware store, a grocery store, radio shack and 2 drug stores. If I drive another 15 miles I might be able to find some at Alco.
