When do you start back at Tafe??

Pity you have to use your first child-free day working on that forever growing list.

Back at Tafe on Tuesday. and as for the list, well thats the joys of moving just before school ends, and being busy during the holiday, and now having people coming to visit- who will be looking at the house too.

Drop off kids at school
Do Dad's grocery shop and drive it to his house
back to local shops for little things
home to an empty house
everyday chores
do some serious job searching and update resume
collect kids - DS complains that first day back that my first question to him isn't "how are you" or "how was your day" but "who did you get?"


Posted 30 January 2013 - 11:02 AM

Today my main things to do (not counting all the everyday chores) is:

mow the lawn (will go when I've finished this cuppa)
clean out fridge
sort through some second hand uniforms a friend gave me and drop off what doesn't fit to OP shop
