    Completely paranoid about snakes now after reading the posts from @HearMeRoar and @Happymum2. I'll be requesting the lawns be mowed extra short.

    had a nice few moments to myself today too. good balance of newborn life and normal reality. felt like some structure was there which was nice as last few days have felt like just playing catch up and chasing our tails.

    We live in the bush and I'm always paranoid about snakes. Yet to see one, but I know they will be out there.

    We just moved to Bundy. I've been told by several people how prevalent snakes are here because of the sugarcane, and I've already been extra wary.

    I hope you never have to see a snake!

    I will add to the snakes.
    Dd3 had a ankle massage from a large brown snake last weekend. It rubbed her ankle when she sitting on the edge of the patio as went past. Dd2 almost stood on a smaller one the week before it was on the front door step.

    The good thing about king brown according to our er doctors is that 80%of bites are dry bites. Thank God.
    Ds3 was bitten next to his boy bits 2 Christmas ago when he sat on a king brown. I never want to go through that ever again.

    I am glad I took photos of the bite straight away.

    We live one acreage away from cattle and mango farms and 2 streets from full bush. It is to be expected here. In town they would be rare.

    Hugs. It sucks. I bet you're one of the amazing teachers that should stay, too. Whatever you decide, I hope it makes you happy.
    That's really sweet of you. Actually I am starting to think I am a rather crap teacher. I have the same kids for years in a row and I'm starting to feel more and more like I just haven't taught them anything. They can't even remember stuff from two days ago at the moment!

    That's the reason my mum stopped teaching. Even when it's something you are passionate about, the drain of all the surrounding drama wears you down.

    Best wishes!
