Rich had so been looking forward to his party but the last few days his behaviour has been shocking & I was so tempted to cancel.... This morning the poor little monkey woke up with a bit of a fever. What does one do when the birthday boy is sick...? Well, he decided he still wanted to have the party. At least it explains his behaviour too.
He was a trooper. When Mark brought the kids home Rich threw up several times & isn't feeling great. He didn't even eat much of the junk food. He was to tired to even open all of his presents tonight. He really wanted to but just didn't have the energy. Poor little monkey.
Here are some pics from the day
Life as usual has been busy busy busy. Oscar & Ella have started the induction 'Stay & Play' program for when they start 'school' (kindy) in September. The school year here goes from September to the end of June. They absolutely love it. Some of the kids even after the 3rd session weren't too keen to let mummy leave the room. Right form the start Oscar & Ella didn't even bother saying bye mum, lol. Even though the parents just pop into a different part of the building for half a hour while the kids stay with their class & teachers :)
We also found out that Mark's on the next project so we're going to be here to 2016, so another 2 years. We had to renew our Alien Residence Cards, that was a fun 4 hours at immigration ;) At least we won't have to do it again ('IF' the project runs on time....).
Rich's party is next Saturday. My evenings have been consumed by making stickers, cutting them out, cutting out lego masks, putting together activity books (most of the families here take off for the summer so I thought it'd be great for the kids while they are spending 10+ hours on a plane!) & making lego boxes. Yep, crazy lady!
Here are the pics I've taken over the last week or so :)
Well for Rich anyway, Mark has engine testing so I think he'll even be working his normal Sunday that he has off. Oh the joy...
We've managed to keep the last few days occupied. With a birthday party on Wednesday, a quiet day on Thursday because of rain & arts and crafts yesterday followed by a ride on their new bikes as the weather finally got better. The kids are at the park at the moment & I'm doing some more stuff for Rich's birthday.
Last night I printed & cut out sheets of stickers I'd made up form images I'd downloaded & tried making a lego box.
I'm about to head out to see if I can find some A3 paper.
Here's a few pics form the last few days. I didn't manage to get a pic of Ella on her bike... Will do next time.
