  1. try buying shoes to fit over AFO's just about impossible. Poor twin 1 has to wear shoos 4 sizes too big just to get them over the plastic. and gumboots are just about impossible they are so large that I am surprised he can walk at all. He has practically no ankle movement so cannot tip foot down to slide them in .
  2. We had rain :hurray: beautiful rain! :hurray: :hurray: It rained all day :hurray: :hurray:
  3. Ds21rents a room right next to the university. He pays 160 per week. He has a bar fridge in his room.shares bathroom and kitchen with the other 5 students also renting rooms there. Internet and electricity are included in rent. The house has no living area as all rooms have been converted into bedrooms.
  4. I have straight fine long hair. I keep my hair braided as any other hairstyle like ponytails fall out within an hour
  5. attachment- I struggle with this all the time. I don't make friends on purpose ( easier to remain friendless than lose a friend). I really struggle when DH is away in Canada - I have had mental breakdowns over this.
  6. no. I live right at the estuary of a large ( to Australia) river system, it floods regularly. We see what comes down in that water and we see the destruction that water causes. It is not just muddy water like as puddle at all. Enough people have died that Australia is atm having a big advertising program warning people to never go into floodwaters.
  7. We have to watch out for deer as well. same son had to break suddenly just 2 weeks ago to avoid a deer and had to get all new tyers afterwards. He is working in a very remote area of the state in very heavy bush ( forest ) . the heaviest bush in the state in fact.
  8. never rains but pours, DS18 hit a huge Kangaroo and totaled his car. Even the chassis is cracked. He is shaken but unharmed.
  9. solar hot water service. has saved us thousands over the years solar electricity panels. - so nice to receive a check in the mail every quarter instead of a bill
  10. DH and I are perfectly matched in many many areas. the ones that we are not perfectly matched in are the not so important areas
  11. Made it through the day. It is now Monday here and I feel so mentally fatigued that I am not sure how I will go. It is only 8 am and I have already broken into the hidden stash of dark chocolate.
  12. Ah, I see. It is a North American word. I have never heard of the word and have no idea how it would be pronounced
  13. not sure if I have ever heard the word before so I will have to look it up to see what it is before I can vote
  14. DH's father died suddenly on Tuesday, He was 93. DH has madly been traveling to Canada ever since he heard the news, absolutely devastated. He got there today and found out that his brother and sisters started fighting over the estate even before the deceased father was removed from the bedroom ( mother is still alive but in shock and completely confused even denying that she was ever married). My poor poor DH. He cannot believe what is going on. He is absolutely distraught . So wish I could be with him in his time of complete distress
  15. Hugs I remember telling a mum that I thought her son was maybe experimenting with drugs. It didn't go well at all. Mother was very very upset with me. About 2months later the boy stole a gun and traided it with someone for drugs and that person used the gun to kill another youth. Son ended up in a juvenile detention.
  16. Dh's father died this evening ( morning in Canada) he was 93 :crying: . :crying: Dh will be traveling to Melbourne tomorrow and flying out on Thursday.
  17. I just walk in. As does DH to his parents you should have had a poll :toetap05: ( love polls)
  18. ds22 is provided with a 3 page formula sheet for Aerospace exams ( of course he has to know which formulas are used and how to use them). also on some exams he is allowed to bring in one A4 sheet of paper with as many notes as he can fit on it.
  19. 32, 11 years younger than my actual age
  20. depends where in Australia you live. To me it is one of the biggest insults to call a child 'a cheeky little bugger. I ripped into my MIL once (the only time ever) when she called my child a little bugger. He is absoultly not involved in sodimy at all and how dare she make a comment like that.
  21. No I don't allow it. Unfortunatly the twins do it every single time there is nobody in the room. That is why the couch has a big wool blanket over the seat part. Every single cushion now has a full sized rip right down the middle. :cursing: :glare: :cursing: We daren't leave them for a second alone in anybody else's house as the cannot be trusted.
