My Day...

Head is buzzing with schoolwork...I thought those days where over when I left my uniform behind too many years ago to remember!

But here I am schooling year5 and year7 as well as trying to do everything else like check waters and chase weaners out of corners!! so different to my school days on the Sunshine Coast.

So why is it so hard to sit down and fill in the enrollment forms for Dalby South State School??

I was riding around dodging spear grass and thinking about how hard it will be for the kids to go to school and then it hit me...what about me! For all my complaining about School, Elluminate and Bloody Japanese I am going to miss the connection I have with my children...I am scared they will not be mine for long and it won't be long and they will have their own adventures. When you're with them 24/7 and I might not talk to or see another person for a week (besides Steve!) they are my best friends.

I know every mum has the same feelings but I will go from all to more eating breakfast in the schoolroom or wearing your PJ's to school. Until today I have been excited but now I am worried not so much for Ryan but more for Jess but more for ME!

Leaving my friends, loosing my children and husband all day and having to go and find a job it all seems so scary! so that's how my day is going and I am looking forward to tomorrow...I have had enough of today!

School Memories!

Dad and Chocolate

Dad and Chocolate at North Shore Beach November 2009
before the problems started doing what they both loved to do!



Well we had the couple who are taking over from us come to stay last night. And today while driving with Steve it hit me tears flowed(as they are now) we are really leaving!

I want to leave as  no.1 reason I can't send my children off to boarding school and no.2 I have a lovely house in Dalby waiting for us to make it a home!

BUT!! I don't want to leave friends who I don't see regularly enough but they are their, down the end of the dirt road when I need them. I am going to miss everyone and wish it wasn't a 1600km trip to say "Hi"

I have been packing, recycling my grocery boxes into packing boxes.I have many small boxes! easy to carry but wow there are a lot!

We are all a little excited about our next adventure but also a little worried what lies ahead.
