Cassidy has gone for another sleepover, I have missed her for the last couple of days.
Caitlin is doing really well at her job. 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.
