  1. Here to change registration to a new owner you have to have a roadworthy certificate that is given out by a registered mechanic. Used cars are either sold with one, or the new owner has to get one. If the car is sold with one than it has been gone over with a fine tooth comb as there are stiff fines for mechanics giving them out and faults found in the car. If it is sold without one then the buyer is responsible to get the repairs done on the car and get the certificate before they an register the car. Stops the exact situation that op is talking about.
  2. I was taught aeiou And that was the extent of phonics. I was right In the whole language age. I didn't know any phonics at all until I started homeschooling.
  3. I am the shortest (appart from the twins)
  4. We have a bat house plus a huge amount of frogs.we also keep vegetation down near the house and don't go out I the evenings without protective clothing like long sleeves etc.
  5. I missed that one. I was trying to type on a tablet and it was unhelpfully changing every second word to something completely different
  6. He said on the phone that he is OK. My brother is going to pick him and his car up and he will be home this evening sometime.
  7. I have never heard that pain meds are meant to take all the pain away, but rather just take the edge off it.
  8. Old people in their 90s loose their body fat and become basically skin and bone. It is just the way it is. They also tend to eat less as they really don't burn much energy ( in previous life I was an aged care worker)
  9. :grouphug: :grouphug: :grouphug: Boys :toetap05: they are a never ending worry it doesn't stop when the get older. My ds20 just rang me ( 30 minutes ago) to tell me he was in a head on car crash and his car is totaled. Other car has claimed full responsibility was cutting the corner in remote rural dirt road deeply mountained clifff on one side type of thing. Ds20 was on the inside of the corner.
  10. I saw a investigation program into insurance fraud. Apparently this is one of the questions on some work cover forms. In the investigation program it uncovers a person who was killed in a work accident the but was revived. The insurance denied his claim for injury because it wasn't fatal enough. Arrrg! having huge trouble with auto spelling fix.
  11. We were forced into it by a failed school system. I was anti homeschooling.
  12. Not so much cloud seeding here in Aus but rather the intense heat that rises with the smoke etc into the atmosphere with a huge firestorm pulls cooler damp air from the coast, thus creating a big rain event, which puts out the fire. Has to be a big firestorm though
  13. :crying: :crying: :crying: :crying: :crying: :crying: tonight I will cry in remembrance of a lovely boy full of life :crying: :grouphug: :grouphug: :grouphug:
  14. 10 pm. it is the earliest I can get to bed as Ds12 does his next day's morning school work form 8.30 - 10 in the evenings as he has Dyslexia and cannot concentrate with twins around. I get up between 4-5 am.
  15. years! Their brain is reconfiguring for most of the teen years. Take things s..l..o..w..l..y. Give only one instruction at a time.
  16. we cannot buy cod at all. What they have in the supermarkets is imitation cod which is some fish from South Africa treated to taste similar.
  17. Aldi is 100 km away. As are most shops. We go once a month or so. It is almost always well stocked. Though they are constantly refilling the bananas. There are fast food shops that go there and use it as a wholesale wherehouse. I have seen them taking a huge amount of flatbread and lettuce.
  18. :grouphug: :grouphug: :grouphug: :grouphug: :grouphug:
  19. feeling really really down about the court hearing yesterday. (Silly I know seeing that the court granted us what we were all after) but the silly judge mentioned where I live - so now birth parents know. There are only about 1000 people in my area. every single person knows me. so if the birth parents want they can now come to the area (that they now know) and ask anybody to point out my house and find us.
  20. :grouphug: :grouphug: :grouphug: I understand I really do. I had one twin get his hands in a 3 kg tub of honey, just because I was on the phone for a few moments and he was out of supervision for those few moments. Honey is very messy
