    I am officially moving interstate - again! When we move out of this place we will have lived here for just 5 weeks.

    Whaaaaaat!?! Hope this time its a little more permanent. Moving sucks!

    As for me - I am pooped! This morning was filled with 'trying' to vacuum/clean the car (currently half done as DS lost interest in helping) and then helping DH pull the seats/carpet (pretty much the interior) out of his torana to check floor rust and prep for when his new (old but restored) seats come back from the upholsterer.

    A little rust in the footwells so some work is needed to find out where the water is coming in but otherwise not so bad for an old car.

    So, seeming we are in Brisbane a.k.a. saunaville we are done for the day.

    Also, I got to run around in the rain with DS. I have not done that in years.

    We are now showered, dressed, sitting in aircon and watching cartoons. Life is good.

    Definitely not a weirdo. My ds is 5 in April and has only had one sleepover at my in laws, that was 6 months ago and his choice (he begged me to let him). He has never asked again. My dd was 3 last November and she hasn't had a sleep over anywhere without us. Having said that we do have either my in laws or my mum babysit very occasionally but they always come here.

    Yup... we moved to Canberra Jan last year for work for DH while I was on mat leave. Moved back to return to work on Monday... and DH was offered a job in Bundaberg today.

    I'm a vet - not just some random nosy-Parker.
    Thanks so much lovely.

    It's not firm and he doesn't even flinch when I press on it. No scabs. He's a giant furball so it's hard to visualise anything really. He's an outdoor cat but sticks to our yard. He doesn't seem bothered by it at all. I only noticed because I was patting him this morning.

    I wouldn't rush him to the vet today. If you have s regular vet chat to them on Monday morning and go from there.

    Really over being a mum of a 21 yr old. So sick of the stress and worry and wish I could just not be a mum for a week or so. I need a break from this mother gig.. He's a frigging adult and a father himself yet I'm still picking up the pieces all the time. I hate it

    My eldest will be 21 in a few months. This parenting gig never ends. I don't have the same worries as you but every weekend when he goes out with his mates I worry he will get into a fight or some idiot with King hit from behind.
