After last year's blue adventure, with its rather harrowing recovery dramas, Joss decided to start early and make a choice that is more likely to be acceptable at school. As she is fair skinned and freckly like I am, it looks pretty fabulous.
The kids have been spending their holidays having sleep overs (new rule - take your PJs just in case your play day gets upgraded because I am sick of making a second trip), doing make up (Emilia goes to a school with a year 10 formal) and reading.
The shopping has been done and the presents are wrapped, tomorrow we head off and begin to celebrate!

It's Friday, late afternoon. Work is over for the week, the weather is warm and things are looking sunny.
I am escaping to Melbourne this weekend, with a friend, to see the David Bowie exhibition. I'll also get to stay with my brother and his family, so I am really looking forward to it. We aren't leaving until 4 tomorrow afternoon, so I have time to get organised. Win, win!
Last night my once colleague, now looong distance friend, Kristy, was in town. A bunch of us met at the Birdhouse, which is a kind of hipsterish bar, which has no food. We were going to go to a restaurant afterwards, but were rather settled, so ordered burgers and pizzas from the cafe next door. I didn't actually get to catch up with Kristy, you know how these gatherings go; pretty noisy and you mostly chat with the people right next to you, but it was fun, and I can recommend the lamb burger, sans bun.
As you can see, I really captured that fun in my photo. You can also see that the Birdhouse is not really set up for food. Where would you put a plate?!

It was a great time of enjoying theoutdoors (in the warmest part of the day), listening to encouraging teaching about work, rest and busyness from SMBC's Mark Adams, and just hanging out with the church family. The planners were very thoughtful and brought a proper coffee machine and various people stood at it and just pumped out the coffees. I partook of many as the cabin we were 'sleeping' in was pretty rough!
It was supposed to be Out and About in Wagga, but somehow, Toby's group ended up driving to Canberra on Monday to go ice-skating and shopping. Six hours in the bus! Toby bought a basketball. Yesterday they went to The Rock and climbed it, followed by the Botanic Gardens for a scavenger hunt. Today is bowling, the movies and laser tag. I have enjoyed not making his lunches, sitting in the car for half an hour with Joss, waiting for the bus to return from Canberra (laughing about elves and cats from the underworld, and then going home again because they are running so late). Tomorrow I won't wake him in the morning and just see him when I get home; term over for Tobes.
Joss gets to go to Prime News, 8.30 - 4.30, every day this week. Actually, today she needs to be there at 8. She is loving it. Going out with the journalists investigating arson, editing stories on cycling, and writing stories to be critiqued, and to be read on air. She is all kitted out in pencil skirts and peplum tops, having lunch with other students who are doing their work experience at businesses downtown and basically living the life. Her current plan is to study journalism at Wollongong Uni and she is on track so far!
