Wow. 7 months!!! Holy moly!!

Nope. They blamed him for not going where he was supposed to go and were vague to any question I asked when they eventually got back to me... pretty unsatisfied with them lately.

I don't know where the time has gone.

It's they any way to escalate? That's a pretty poor response given how serious the situation was, and the potential for it to be a lot worse.

I'd be fuming, what a crap response, we getting same sort of response about dd being locked in a room and forgotten.
School,goes back tomorrow so let the battle begin again....

Sure seems pretty dead.....

Going okay, but stressed with the house build and the lead up to Christmas is bad for business (if we don’t have people in contracts out to at least March we are screwed as we have to cut people and don’t get new work for months - so it’s a lot of work to get everything extended/new work/sorted before the start of December). Kids are the usual feral cheeky monsters.

Hows little miss going bc? How are you finding the first few months of parenting?

My business dies off at this time of year too.

Would you believe I’m the mother of an eight month old? She’s doing well, growing nicely and sleeping well.

I only come back occasionally. Soon it will be me, DH and the dog left at home. Exciting times coming up for all 3 kids! I won't post but will pm if anyone is interested.

BC, can't believe you have an 8mo already!

Mands at the very least the school should develop an up to date personalised risk assessment to prevent a reoccurrence.

#12 Squeekums The Elf

Posted 15 November 2019 - 04:10 PM

8 months? Wow
Yeah, I hope it don't die completely

Mands, gotta "love" this time of year....

We been super busy. Went down to ceduna for a week to meet dp cousin and his family and uncle. Such a long drive omg
Best bit, we went to WWE Melbourne for our anniversary. Front row, meet and greets, heaven. I even got to walk the ramp to ring and hold the main title belt.
Got my replica belt signed, that was an effort getting it to Melbourne. I had to carry it on my shoulder lol

Teens pm me too, I can understand not wanting to post publicly

Sounds like a great trip Squeeks.

PM for me too please Teens.

I must say a little selfishly that I am loving this time of my life :)

Just got back from a trip over to Perth for a conference, DH came with me and we certainly made the most of our down time.

For us life is rolling along nicely, DD continues to do well and I am so proud of her. DS is still in the big smoke but I am hoping he will be home for Christmas.

It's been hot here - nothing like the East Coast and I cross my fingers any time fires are mentioned.

BC, that time has flown by - before you know it she will be toddling around :)

Mands, I hope you manage to catch a break soon.

TP, she’s trying so hard to crawl at the moment. She can move around on her butt but not great distances yet.

#16 Tiger Print

Mands, that is ridiculous!

Still loving the NT, it is a special to me.

Crawling already bc!  That's so exciting,

Fiji sounds lovely.

Yes she’s sleeping much better, thanks,

Everyone doing ok with this hot weather?

I do miss him lots Mands, but have been lucky to catch up with him a couple of times this year.

Hmm, boss situation.  He took a job at a higher level and has been gone since February, recently has had a rather nasty diagnosis regarding his health and is currently on extended sick leave.  Not sure if he will be back as he was planning to move interstate in the next year or so.  I do feel sad for him.

Very cool, i didnt see it though :( I dont watch much 10 anymore come to think of it

Mands, ewww worms, not fun, parenting sucks at that point lol

We got be ready to leave warnings on our hot day as there was a fire either side of town one 20km and another almost 100km away.
DP dad rang to asking what was going on. He actually woke us up and was first we heard of the fires
We didnt even get smoke or the smell of it then driving to adelaide the other day, the closest fire was no where near us. The CFS were about all day
