MG and Kiwi - Man teething SUCKS I reckon the molars and eye teeth are SOOOOO much nastier than the first teeth. Hope you guys get a break soon I reckon Lexi might be starting to get her molars moving around, shes been really chewing on her dummy the past few days (everyone keeps telling me!!) and she's also had Hand Foot and Mouth again poor little bugger but at least its not as bad as last year and she is recovering quickly.
MG - I suffered from pregnancy insomnia, it sucks. I know exactly what you mean about having a testing toddler and needing to get out of the house, I felt the same before I left for my prac and felt so guilty about it. Hope you can get some sleep soon and S is a good boy for you xx
Thought Id post in here cos its way too long to put on F/B and personally I like the chatter in here better
I told my school of our decision on Monday and to say the least they are GUTTED. GUTTED!!! Ive been harrassed all week about changing my mind!!! Apparently they had my position all planned and wre just waiting to 'see me in action'' before they offered it but were already pretty sure I was the right person, so for me to now say no has really put them in a spin as they arent sure they will be able to get a teacher for my department for next year (cos we are a specialist subject and hardly any want to go to the country). I have to be honest Ive REALLY doubted my decision cos Ive really settled in there this week and am sooo happy, I could totally see me teaching there and us living here happily.
I think we are making the right decision though but its not easy and Im really bummed about it . Bummer as it is cos this job and move would be perfect Adelaide teaching jobs are open for applications until the end of next week but Ive decided Im not applying, just going to do relief teaching and be povo for a few more years. We are making ends meet now (just!) without me working so theres no desperate need for me to commit to something.
But Ive said to the school if they need a relief teacher for more than a day at a time in their department they can call me down as long as it is financially work my while (relief work pays well so 2 days or more work usually would be fine!) they looked happy with that cos specialist teachers in Home Ec (let alone relief teachers) are rare and it often means for any school with a Home Ec teacher away they have to cancel the practicals and the kids get mighty sh*tty plus the food often has to be thrown away which is a waste. Im sure I will pick up plenty of relief work in Adelaide too, and at least the I wont be tied to any particular school and keep future options open.
So theres my story. On the up side though DH and A are travelling down to visit for a couple of days tomorrow so I cant wait!!!

Waiting - just a thought but could they jig the timetable so you could do say .6 or something and get all the classes on those 3 consectutive days? At one point brett had to do work at millicent and they set up the millicent and naracoorte timetables so he was at millicent 2 full days and naracoorte the rest? thay way you could do 3 nights there and have the reat of the week back here so you get to have your cake and eat it too.....might not be feasible but they can usually pull it off if the need is great....
I like it better here too.....FB is good for quick catch ups but personally i like to grab a cuppa over lunch and sit and catch up on a few pages here...
I see a few of your little ones all love ducks, and there are so many in the botanic gardens atm - next week is the lunch catch up but the week after we could do a picnic - im sure the weather will be fine and it was divine soaking up some sum and company yesterday!!! we could all bring something to share like what my twin group did yesterday and grab a coffee or cold drink at the kiosk - i took a ball for max to kick around - it was bliss!!!!

Bubhub mobile gotten fancy.
LM & Waiting - I agree, I prefer it here too. Well its a good thing I'm not going to the lunch, it's showday next Friday, so all kids home. Must go......
02-09-2011 13:16 #1164
oooh Id LOVE to take A to the botanic gardens she would love it been talking of going for ages and planning to when we get back. DEFINITELY pencil in another trip to the botanic gardens for a picnic in October the kiddies will love running around and Ill actually be able to bring A for once!!!!!
Hmmm yeah the part time thing... not an option They had a meeting at the school last week cos over 50% of the teaching staff have applied for part time next year (the average age of teachers there is high and many are wanting to retire). The job they had for me was full time, to replace 2 part time teachers wanting to cease teaching (just do leadership/counselling roles). They said at the meeting its just not possible to give people full days off because of the structure of the timetable and links to the TAFE next door and Penola high etc. Bummer.
Not long till I get to see my baby girl!!! Oh and DH too

I have to admit I prefer it here too. I'm on FB but I hesitate to put too much personal info there.
Waiting - I hope the car made it and you're having fun with DH & A now. It must be like a little holiday for you all. Bummer about the job but I'm sure another good opportunity will present itself when the time is right.
LM - Ducks & kicking the ball around sound good. Actually I was doing the same with E yesterday in a park near here (minus the ducks). This weather is beautiful!
MG - Hope S is getting over the teething and you're sane again.
Have a great weekend everyone!

Rach - I'm not a huge fan of fb, it is a huge security risk. Several people I know who work in high up areas of internet security loathe fb and tell me all the time to be careful about what I say.
LM - Lovely seeing you and your gorgeous kidlets today. I was meant to leave you the cake, doh! Guess who will eat it now. Poor Sammy, is miserable with his eyes, thankfully he is fast asleep now (hopefully not in a coma, see below). Stupid me Dr googled his eye drops and I'm freaking out now, it can cause hallucinations, no wonder he was acting a bit doped up. And too many drops can put them in a coma, great after I squirt too much in, bl00dy hell! Hope he's alright after 4 more doses! I will be keeping a close eye on him. Did you still want to walk tomorrow?
Waiting - Sounds like you had a wonderful weekend with the family.
Hi to everyone, hope you all are enjoying this weather. school run approaching.......
05-09-2011 19:05 #1168
Holy crap kiwi...no wonder he was acting like an old drunk!!!! hope hes ok!! might skip the walk - got stuck i nto my weeding and stacked it off the retaining wall, now my right elbow hurts like hell....i know it wouldnt usually affect a walk but having to push the pram wont be fun with a dicky arm....

Hi all, sorry haven't written in here for probably a couple weeks! Hope you're all well! have been thinking (and reading) about you all!
Waiting....of course they would be so gutted to not be able to employ such a star of a teacher but you've got bigger plans which you want to pursue more so go with your heart mate and the rest will follow in due course! Glad to hear you had a great weekend with DH and A!
Kiwi...hope S is ok!! never knew eye drops could cause a coma! wtf?!! what's wrong with his eye?
Rach.....glad to hear you dont need to have the surgery for the time being! great news! how are the girls going? how's little M?
LM....how are you and the kidlets? are the twins going well with their solids?
Hi to everyone else! Hope you're all going well and enjoying bubs either on the inside or outside!
AFM, all ok here. still got quite a bit of painting to do and it's driving me nuts! very over it and just want it done. went to the funeral of the 26yo on friday (he would've been 27 today). was sad! there were over 1000 people there! he had a stomach ulcer on his (and please excuse the terrible spelling here but just read it as it sounds) osphagus which was weakening the wall of his heart and it just squashed and bled. poor thing!
Also on detox at the minute! feeling ok about it but am hanging for a big fat schnitty! . this detox includes no caffiene, no carbs, no wheat, no dairy, no alcohol, no meat and chicken. So lots of fish, veggies, salad, decaf tea, fruit, muesli and water. it's not too bad cos you're still eating proper food, just alot more of the good healthy stuff. doing it for 3 weeks.
Anyway, best be off to tidy up!

Lisa- you detox sounfs like my idea of torture! Well done. I hear you about the painting, hang in there. Sorry to hear about your friend, hugs.
LM- no worries about the walk. The shoes fit Sam perfectly, thankyou.
Afm- Sam is having his pupils dilated for 3 days, so dr can check for squint and long sightedness. It has in it or is similar to belladonna. Don't know how I'll do the drops on my own tomorrow morning, he screamed and ran tonight. Poor bab.
