Whew! Finaly have enough space to sit and think. The move went good and we are all moved in. The kids have settled in to school. Unfortunately for MrJ and MrS there seems to be no pokemon fans at the school so they are doing their best with playing touch football at lunch. Everybody tells me it is the best school in the area and at only 190 students is very close. I tried to get MrM and MsR in to the local kindy but they have loooooong waiting lists, I was told I could pay $20 to have MsR put on the list but she would most probably not get in even next year!! So no I wont throw away a non refundable $20 on the off chance. I could send them to a daycare 30-40 min but for what? I don't want daycare I want them to go to a good and caring kindy. I am able to get to some meetings from an internet forum I frequent and THANK GOODNESS for that. I went to one last Friday and I was so nice to sit with other mummas and be surrounded by real women and sweet babes.
The house is taking some adjustment as it is a highset and of the older variety. There are 2 1/2 bedrooms upstairs, combined bathroom toilet, lounge and huge kitchen and dinning. Downstairs is another toilet, 3 rooms and a double garage and laundry. Unfortunately the are no internal access stairs so we are all upstairs-the boys in one room, the girls and all the clothes in another and DH and I have the teeny 1/2 bedroom. We took that as it has huge windows and I didn't like the idea of the children being anywhere near the upstairs windows with out some kind of guarding.
It is good to not have packing and moving hanging over our heads. Maybe now I can back into some serious crafting...
