Things are great when the kids are back at school – everyone is busy, but purposeful and the house is much quieter!
We’ve spent the past few days trying to eliminate the nits that infiltrated our peaceful home! Our special friend from over the road constantly has them and it is small wonder that we’ve not had them here before now. So we discovered them in Holly’s hair on Wednesday night, treated her and she was ok. But the funny thing is that as soon as you think about nits in the house, you get really itchy! I was paranoid, and Justin is hopeless at identifying anything abnormal like this, so I doused for louse anyway. Silly me did it in the morning and had to go to school mass and concert with oily slicked back hair. I looked like Jaime Lee Curtis in “True Lies” when she tipped the vase of water on her head before going to dance for Arnie. I was super self conscious, but my friend assured me I looked like I had fancy product in my hair and was going for an ultra cool look! The house is now nit free, but I have a massive amount of washing to contend with that I am not looking forward too.
I managed to tie up all the loose ends with the end of financial year paperwork and it is now ready to go off to the accountants. Sigh of relief all around!
The girls glasses are ready to be picked up. Holly has hard a hard week at school without them, but because she is fairly mild it was not detrimental. If that were me at primary school with no glasses, I wouldn’t have been able to see anything. But, even though I had them at a young age, I don’t remember ever losing a pair or having them broken, and I certainly didn’t have a spare.
Justin wants to take the girls to the snow on the weekend. There is a park just out of town that has snow and isn’t too far away or too busy with fancy skiers, so we’ll go there, have a play and come home. We have no proper snow gear, so it will be short and sweet. I wonder who’ll be first to crack it when they discover that snow is cold and wet. I’m betting on Jess!
I’ve booked a couple of flights in the last few days. Holly and I are going to Melbourne for 4 days to stay with Kate. Some Mother/Daughter special time. And Justin and I are going to Brisbane in October for Emily’s wedding. In September Jess and I are going to see Dora the Explorer stage show as our special treat together. Meg came to Sydney with me in the holidays, so that was her thing. It really is expensive having so many children!
Have a great weekend.
