The kids were all asking Neale as to who will drive the new car - Neale's comment is that according to the Ferengi 138th rule of acquisition - Jenny gets the new car!!!!
My son Morgan was around and just the right time - and he got the job of putting these shelves together for me. I'm tempted to go and buy another set! Neale hasn't realised (but will, if he reads this post!) that I've smuggled in 3 tubs of material that were out in the shed - they're now housed on the kitchen sideboard. I've still got another 3 tubs out in the shed, so might bring another one in.
Am so looking forward to Tuesday - it's a public holiday for the running of the Melbourne Cup. Being the most dedicated and conscientious worker that I am - I'm taking Monday off as an annual leave day - giving myself a nice 4 day weekend. Hooray! Mind you, I've got to make sure that all my work is done on Friday - pay sheets for my house cleaners need to be done and sent for processing with all their work organised for Monday & Wednesday.
Laura sat her first Year 12 exam this morning - English. She says she thinks it went ok. Only 3 more exams to go and her schooling life is over. Next weeks exam is for multimedia. I'm having to leave work early on the Friday to get her to Warragul (about 40 mins away) to sit this one.
Hadden (no 3 son) is pretty disappointed today. He's applied to ADF and today has received a letter telling him that due to his peanut allergy (he carries an epipen - which thankfully, we've never had to use) he is medically unfit for service. His allergy hasn't been assessed for quite some years - hopefully with age, it might have lessened - anyway, we've told him to go to the Doctor/Specialist and get retested and check. Not a happy chappy.
