I dropped Josh off at school this morning and spent a bit of time playing with him and a few of his friends with the Play-Doh. They all started off cutting letters out, then Joshua and Ryder both rolled some snakes out, before it was time to pack up and I left.
I went to the library to drop off a couple of books, including the enormous dinosaur one Josh and I read to the end before I took him in, as per the picture. I popped to the shop and bought a few things as we needed some milk and Deanne wanted to do some baking tonight.
After I got home I started doing some of Richard’s work. It took me a bit to get my head round what I was meant to be doing but then I got into the swing of things and managed to get a rhythm going. I worked until lunchtime then took a break, heated up the last of my sausage rolls and watched an episode of Futurama while I ate.
Got back to the academia after finishing, then worked until it was time to pick the boy up.
I packed a little box with some dried apricots, sultanas and nutri grain (wheaty cereal that goes nicely with the fruit) along with a drink and we went to the ‘other’ playground at the other side of Bibra Lake. Joshua calls it “The Big One”, because it’s bigger than both the others, surprisingly enough.
Fusilli with bolognese sauce and garlic bread for dinner, then to bed for Joshua, quite early tonight, which is good because he’s been pretty tired the last few days. Deanne is making cupcakes as I write.
Tomorrow will be more of the same apart from it’s Tuesday, so Deanne takes Joshy in to kindy.
Deanne took Joshy to kindy this morning, so I could set off to CentreLink at half seven. It opens at eight but if you’re not there on time it means you might have to stand in a queue for half an hour before they even let you sit down to wait to see someone. I managed to get my account sorted out and was home by about ten to eight, which was lucky because Deanne was standing inside the fly-wire door, stuck, as she couldn’t get the latch to turn. It opened fine once I put the key in, think it might just need an oil, so we’ll get some when we shop next time.
They got there in time anyway, so I spent the morning looking at jobs and doing applications and stuff. The only reason I mention Futurama is because they are showing them a few nights a week on one of the channels over here, so I’ve been recording them and watched a couple over lunch time, while eating my cheese and salad sandwiches and an apple.
Deanne sent me a link to a job which looks really good in the afternoon and so I filled in an application and sent it off, before collecting the boy from kindy. I think I mentioned, when we Skyped, that he’s been hugging people a bit too vigorously, so his teacher is giving him a stamp every fifteen minutes when he’s refraining from full body contact with other kids. So the picture below is of his arm today, which was apparently quite a good day!
Had leftovers, plus a cauliflower gratin that Julie sent us home with yesterday for tea. Very nice. It’s Joshy/Nana day tomorrow so I might go for a run again in the morning to try and get me motivated for a day of jobbing again!
