  1. No I haven't heard about them. I also live in a country that didn't do Halloween either. I cannot think I'd anything apart from a bible skit as a child that involved costume dress ups at all.
  2. Medical appointments at the Royal Children's Hospital with twin 1. They were nearly 3 hours late. We almost missed the train. Luckily there was a taxi that could fit a wheelchair out the front. We made it to the platform as they were boarding. So so glad we made it as there are only 3 trains to my area a day and the last one is the midnight one.
  3. I also chuck things in the freezer to kill the weevil eggs. It doesn't cause any problem to the dry food at all
  4. Postage is always so expensive. I recently got a quote for a math manipulative from the manufacturer in USA item was $70 us. Postage was quoted as $100 us. Converting to au$ and the whole thing would be well over$200au. sure helps me to decide I don't need it after all
  5. I would sort of pull the plant gently up out of the pot a little. If it looks very dry I might stand the whole thing in a container of water for a while. If it looks very root bound I would repot. If it looks absolutely soaked I might add some more drain holes
  6. I didn't know people did it. So I guess you could say I didn't know it was offensive by default. I live under a shell I think
  7. Are you after different curiculum for each subject or a whole package type thing?
  8. I draw the line at wildlife in meat. As I have hunting sons we have had this. Now they know I do not want ANY live wildlife in meat in the kitchen. I also don't like strange thing in the freezer. If there are strange things in the freezer they have to be double bagged. Yes ds23 I am talking to you. And if I ever find a bag of frozen rabbit heads again I will cook them up for you.
  9. You g adults are so fun. I have had 2 young adults explain to me about the importance of colour separation before washing. And one ds ring me up to lecture me on the importance of using condoms. That was a very interesting conversation. He was pretty intense. Called them "unwrap and cover" and wanted me to make sure all his siblings knew about them. (Um yes I even showed you where to buy them)
  10. Up at 3am with twin 1 to catch the 3.50am bus and start the 6 hour public transport trip to Melbourne. Go to the zoo with twin 1 for an hour or so. The zoo is literally beside the children's hospital. Very convenient. Spend the rest of the afternoon in the hotel so twin 1 can rest his leg. Found out ds15 came second in the state finals for his fruit cake Tomorrow morning twin 1 has post op check up and we will then hop right back on the train then bus for the trip home
  11. We grow most of our own food. Catapillers on broccoli is pretty normal. I just pay my kids 5 cents per catapiller they find on their plate and keep eating. I can only imagine the amount of pesticides they must use to have catapiller fee broccoli. Though I am thinking about trying insect nets just for the brasicas
  12. I cannot have them as I have a great big cowlick and my hair would stick up awfully . My hair is all waist length. Almost half of it is grey. I am mid 40s
  13. I come from a family of dyslexics, I have stealth dyslexia and I have 3 children with profound dyslexia. We have done intensive phonics instruction for many many years. My kids really struggled with spelling . My oldest, an aerospace engineer still spells we as wea - because ea has a long e sound. He cannot even recognise that it looks wrong. My goal shifted to around 10 being able to touch type, and know how to spell well enough to use spell checker.
