This month has gone by so fast.. this year has gone by so fast... where HAS time gone? I remember my Grandpa saying the years fly by when you get older and now I understand that sentiment. December 11th I turned 40. My friends had a party for me and it was wonderful to spend time with them. Nicholas has graduated grade 6, he will be going to High School next year with Tomas. The girls have male teachers next year, a first for both of them, so exciting yet again. All of their end of year school reports were very good. Effort was recognised at assembly. Mia received a "Goldie" for working at her best all term, and persistence and getting along with others :)
Tomas wrapped up the year with Army Cadets two weeks ago. He loves it and will attend next year also.
Hubby has been working very hard on good fences for those pesky goats haha. We have many new kids, some twins in the mix too. There are two sheep, one named Mary and the other is Lamb Chops, lol.
The nursing dispute rolls on with the State Government, Fair Work Australia and the many other goons that are putting up obstacles that will affect the (already stretched) health system we have here in Victoria. It has been very disheartening that people that make a life out of being carers have to fight so hard for what the community deserve, which is quality health care.. with improvements.. not set backs. Anyway, we are all sticking together and will continue to raise awareness of what we know is needed to maintain and improve the health care in our sector. My girls even made it onto ABC TV NEWS last Saturday with their home made signs on respect my Mum's work etc etc. The teachers all praised them at school as they all watch ABC news :)
Above is the image of a house that is near to our house. The man that owns it dresses the house up in all manner of Christmas decoration. It is wonderful to see the children and adults get excited seeing every little thing on display.
I want to wish you all a fabulous Christmas and a Safe New Year 2012. Take care :)
