So, we are near the end of the Summer holidays and none of us are happy about that in this place. The kids have been sleeping in beautifully and that has suited me to a T because I work night shift, as everyone knows, and I hate waking up early on days off. What am I saying, I don't even fall asleep until the wee hours of the morning when I have been on days off.
Since last night, hubby and I have been winding the kids down and into bed by 8pm. They have been waking up prior to 9am then, It will make it easier to transition into the school routine then.
The days have been in excess of 40 degrees Celsius. It has been nice to welcome in a cool change this afternoon. All the doors and windows thrown open to let the cool air circulate. Poor Bondi felt the heat and we had him indoors giving him water with a little ice in it.
Tomorrow hubby is heading out with some work mates to assist in the clean up from the floods that have affected so many towns here in Victoria. He has five days off of work. He will spend a couple of them staying on location up around the Rochester area and doing whatever the volunteers are required to do.
When the kids do go back to school I am looking forward to getting back on the deadly treadley peddly (aka bicycle) and riding along the river again. I will also pick up a few more shifts at work and sleep while the kids are at school, waking in time for them to crash through the door :)
