Hi Luly

Cassidy has gone for another sleepover, I have missed her for the last couple of days.

Caitlin is doing really well at her job. original.gif and starts Year 12 next week, doing really well on her L's, I am getting better, not so nervous.   She is out and about with her friends on their P plates, that is a bit scary.


Owen is cheeky and cuddly, and so clever, the stuff he comes out with sometimes leaves me gobsmacked.

Rhys is doing volunteer work at Lifeline,  for his Duke of Ed, and I think it has been great for him,  although he says it is boring, I think he actually likes it.

DH is working really hard and is dog tired, poor bugger.

I am working, studying,  doing Diploma now,  it is getting more difficult,  working, and running kids around.
