Back to school again...

Ahhh 2 weeks school holiday here in Oz is almost finished ,, back to school on Thursday ,, what a good Easter break for my hubby too ,, so the kids are all eager to go back to school and learn again ,, it will be the second term of the school year and kids missed the school routine,, hoping the teachers are feeling the same way too...hoping the all the school equipment are all set up and ready to be used again ...
I love having the kids at home,, we just chill out ,, go out and play and I just let them watch or play ,, so it was such a hassle free holiday ,, although we had a visitor for 10 days ,, my hubby's brother and his 2 boys and I must say it was overwhelming for me... I can control my two kids but with extra 2 hyped up boys it was a bit too much for me ,, but nevertheless I was happy to see my kids having fun , not only having fun with me but having fun running around with other kids ..

Cleaning afterwards is the downtime for me... My son who received heaps of Lego on his birthday , who patiently constructed all the Lego sets is upset to see most of the Lego scattered and undone ,, yes the cousins did it ... Now I have the task of helping my boy to put them back together, and with all of them combined,, it is such a nightmare ,, might take us few days to do it .......... grrrrrr....

Chill.....

Ahhh .. Autumn chill!!!!! we are feeling cold ,, brrrr the wind is chilly and the weather is so gloomy at the moment , we moved in to the new house , but the place has no fireplace yet,, we originally planned for the fireplace , but due to lack of funds we decided to have it done next time,, although the house is fully insulated ,, we can still feel the chill... here I am wearing3 layers of clothes ,,, all ragged up and just wanting to cuddle up in bed..... my boy who has an allergy is feeling itchy with the jacket that he is wearing ,, he is also getting stuffy ,,nose blocked and as an asthma sufferer , I dont want him to end up having difficulty breathing ,, he might need those air purifiers ,, been looking at that or awhile now. Hmm,, coffee.... I need coffee.........

Learning how to drive

My 16 year old daughter is an L plater and she is so eager to learn how to drive ,, my hubby took her for a driving lesson and he came back home frustrated ,, (hey the guy have no patience...) anyways , it was a nightmare for my hubby he just told our daughter that she need to book a driving lessons first then he can take her when she is already confident,, I cannot take her because I am still on my P plate so, its hubby's job to take her for a lesson ..
They are using y car ,, so I have to make sure that my car is in good condition,, actually it needs to be serviced and changed oil, then I have o renew our roadside assistance which is due for renewal next week . Then the tyres needed to be pumped up ,, with everyday use and tear it is now due for a change .
My daughter is also seriously saving money so that she can buy a car ,, but we told her not to rush things because it is still a long way before she can drive and she needs to have around 150 hours of driving experience ..... Good luck to her then.....
