Well, we have been very busy this past month. Working and keeping up with the children's social activities, as well as our own. The hot weather has been un believable, and the kids have taken ages to settle into it I think. It was hot and humid and stormy yesterday.
It was parents night at the High School Wednesday night, and Tomas came along with me. Back up to the night before, Tomas had his right big toe nail wedge resected. He has had an in grown toe nail since the age of 3. I have managed it, but it got out of control. It does not help his shoe size has gone from an 8 men's to that of an 11 men's now! The toe nail was always going to have to be resected. So he had a day off of school. That did not make him happy. He loves school, and he missed his girlfriend...oops, girl that is a friend.. (right!).
So, forward to the parents night. I had not imagined it would cost so much for a child to begin High School. Sure the uniform and bag and excursion fees..but not the books! Boy, I am glad I am working a bit more now. But that was to allow us to get in front and save money to go on trips with our four wheel drive. So much for Public Education presumably being low cost.
I am going to go to the second hand book store for a look.. I believe they will have the texts Tom needs. He said "No way Mum" at first..and then I explained to him that it would be like going to the library.. even, recycling. He agrees. Thank the gummy Mary!
Yesterday I worked in an acute setting within the hospital. I was flat out working. I enjoyed it but the heat has been knocking me about a bit too so I was tired when I got home. Today I worked on the Trauma/ Plastics Unit. Another wonderful team of colleagues to work with. I enjoyed that too. Tomorrow is a day off for me. I am so pleased about that :)
I am trying to catch up on every one's blogs, but it is slow-go. Ahhh, I am so pleased we have some relief from the hot weather right now.
