I've been a bad blogga! It's been so busy this week, for a number of reasons... none, a very good excuse though!!!
No new developments in the "moving" saga. It keeps me awake at night... thinking. Oh, to live in a beautiful, leafy, country setting, and still be 10 mins from the city. I've taken a couple of trips (it is a "trip" from our house!) to have a squiz at some land. Who would'a thought, that living in the hills - all the land is so darn steep?!!! LOL! I'm so used to living on "the flat" as it's affectionately known here. So now I dream how you can get a house... and swimming pool, on a steep block! I saw a beautiful block today, it has the most amazing view (it overlooks a nature reserve, thick with gum trees - and gum trees mean koalas!)... but it was steep - not nose bleed steep, but steep enough to make my calves hurt by the time I walked to the top of the block! BUT because it was steep (I should say, Not Flat... it doesn't sound so bad!), it was cheap! So cheap in fact, that if we bought the block, built a HUGE house on it, and a pool - we'd be freehold (after selling our current home). When I think about living there, I think about H Man riding his quad... on this block he'd go a squillion miles an hour, and end up at the bottom of the reserve, in 2 seconds... that is if he manages to miss all the trees!!!
H-Man has enjoyed his first week in Grade One. Probably because they haven't done any "real" work yet!!! Miss M is loving Grade 5, and her new teacher, is young & hip ~ Miss M adores her. She wrote Miss M (and all the other classmates) a little letter during the holidays, saying she hopes she had a great time in the holidays, and looks forward to having her in her class. It was really sweet. She also sent a little eraser.
Its been a crazy week for work - I actually had to do some! I've been putting so many things off during the school holidays! Last night, I got fed up with the pig-sty my office was in, and pulled everything off the shelves & out of the filing cabinet and moved all the furniture around! I love my "new look". But I was wondering why I was all a bit stiff and sore when I got up this morning?!!
