Well so much has happened since I last updated this blog.
Yesterday (February 26) it was Gary’s 5th birthday. He got very spoilt from us. He received 4 different jigsaw puzzles, some kinex, glow in the dark spiders and bugs, an army helicopter that is battery operated that unloads cargo. Well he is growing up, he is settling into school. He is still having difficulty in morning greetings; however it is getting a little better every week.

Kevin is in year 2 and he is on his third teacher. The first happened when the school qualified with enough student numbers to get a 10th teacher. So he went from Miss Crane (year 2/3) for three weeks to Miss Caldecutt (Year 2) for 3 days to Mrs Alexis (Year 20). I certainly hope this is the last teacher change this year he had a really hard time adjusting to all the different teaching styles. It has take 2 weeks for him to stop getting upset and not wanting me to go. He made me proud today, both the boys had tuckshop orders for lunch today, and he said to me mum I am going off to class now. He left me to do the lunch order. This is such an improvement.

At our school we have parade every Tuesday at 2:15. Well I was told on Monday that I had to go because Kevin was getting a certificate for his outstanding handwriting. But to my surprise Gary also got a certificate for being a good friend and always sharing nicely with his peers. So needless to say I was a very proud mum this week.

Raymond my littlest boy had 12 stitches in his back where Tuesday night last week in the bath slipped and got himself on the broken soap. Well the next day the handyman from the real estate was here and put some tape on it. By Thursday afternoon there was a brand new soap dish in place. Ray was so brave he only cried till I got the steri- strips on it and the bleeding slowed to next to nothing. Ray is really enjoying going to daycare and has adjusted really well to going by himself without his brothers. He is quite the conversationalist now speaking in full sentences. It is great to see him growing and maturing. He is still Mr attitude and grumpy with a temper to boot.

On the stitching front i have managed to finish both my February ornaments. I have started to stitch Maryse SAL 2008 which was a checkerboard this is my big project for the beginning of the year and see how I go. the site needs to be translated from French to English.

I now have my Queensland licence and surrendered my Western Australian licence. Surprisingly got my original licence number back after 8 years of being with a Western Australian one. I miss alot about Perth, most importantly my friends that were more like family. I am still adjusting to life back in Queensland. The most difficult for me not have my good friends to call on if needed.

Till next time
