  1. yes it is important because just about any job here that involves driving ( for the job) requires you to have a manual license. This includes jobs like Aged Care Home Help work that I once did, and summer fire fighting that 2 of my boys are currently doing ( they also had to get a 4 * 4 certificate)
  2. sounds like it might be time for Home Help or whatever it is called over there.
  3. :party: :party: :party: what a beautiful family
  4. so glad I am not am modern mum and can read all the great books to my children. So much better than some of the modern PC trash.
  5. your family continue to be in my thoughts. sending positive waves your way :grouphug: :grouphug: :grouphug:
  6. I love that book. I have a reprinted copy of the original. I have read it to many many children. I am guessing that form American standpoint they find it offensive (???). but looking at my copy it is set in India. I don't see what the whole big deal is at all.
  7. thinking of you all Cat and family :grouphug: :grouphug: :grouphug: :grouphug: :grouphug: :grouphug: :grouphug: :grouphug:
  8. ds21 and Uni friends left today. really nice seeing them but glad they are all gone again for a while. No more coming out in the morning to find the sink piled high with dishes, cups and glasses placed in random places and lounge furniture shifted around for card playing. last day of twins swimming lessons Dh arrived in Canada planted some seedlings in flower garden and vegetable garden

  10. 6 1/2 hours including recess/ lunch 9 am start 3.30 pm finish Preschool however ( what we call kindergarten , for children age 4) is 7 1/2 hours. they start at 8.30am and finish at 4 pm
  11. twins had swimming lessons Dh left for Canada :crying: Hot day meant to get to around 40oC today Have ALL my children at home. Three older boys came home to see DH off. :hurray: :hurray: :hurray: Ds21 brought some uni friends as well. A very full house. I seem to be spending all day cleaning up the kitchen and bathrooms.
  12. I have had a similar thing happen to me. My mother and some of my siblings are very sensitive to Valium - so I told my Dr this. he said things like that cannot be passed down. While in labor with ds21 I was given something with Valium in it. Guess what - I had the same reaction as my family members. acting out hallucinations I was literally standing on the bed yelling out that there were cave men and dinosaurs under the bed attacking us. I was in an alternate conscious state and not aware of how bizarre I was behaving. Now I just tell drs the redaction I have and they make sure they don't give me anything with Valium in it.
  13. for electric - elements - 'cause that is what they actually are for wood stove - hot plate - that is what I mostly cook on For gas - I am not sure. I think it might be burners but that might just be what my Canadian DH calls them. Location Vic, Australia
  14. I have read Ping to multiple classes of primary aged students. Every single time students question why the ducks get spanked. I also read to classes Ferdinand - kids absolutely love that story and also have no problem identifying that bull fighting isn't really a nice sport; a discussion that always happens spontaneously, without me leading the conversation. Always there is one knowledgeable student who tells the class that bull fighting is bad because in real life the bulls get tortured and killed at the finish.
  15. I am female over 18 and voted no for all the reasons listed above
  16. really enjoying the summer break. Went for a 4 km walk pushing twins in pram. :coolgleamA: regular housework Dh booked his ticket for Canada and will be departing next week. MIL had stroke and will probably end up in nursing home (94 years old) FIL has suddenly started doing strange things like stripping off all clothes and walking around outside at night while it is - 15. very high probability he will be going into nursing home ( 93 years old)
