Very very frightening!!
Last night at dinner it began to storm and then a very loud bolt of lightening cracked very brightly just outside our house. It struck a tree across the road, sheering of a big branch and leaving mess everywhere. Jess was so freaked out she ran to me screaming, and Amy got such a fright she cried too. I must admit, the loud bang made me jump a foot too. After that, everything was ok, but our phone had short circuited and is now kaput. It ends a bad week for me and phones. Amy dropped my mobile into Dash’s water bowl; Amy took a phone and hid it, but it was on and so the phone was engaged all day yesterday (I only found it when it was running out of battery and I could follow the beeps), and now the only replacement phone we have is a very old Telstra beige one, that has a cord and thus is not a walkie talkie one – OMG how will I go on!!!
On the work front – my lovely new job is no more! The job I was to be doing for the next 3 months has fallen though because I was replacing a girl who is now not needing the replacement, so I am back to square one. Sad. I have made a few phone calls for other things, so we’ll see what comes of all of that. Maybe I’ll just end up doing tuckshop duty!
Meg is very excited about school starting on Tuesday. Holly returns on Monday and then in Mid Feb, Jess starts her 2 mornings a week at possums playschool. I don’t really know what to do with myself with barely any kids on deck. I really need a job!
Have a great weekend.
