thank you

for all your birthday wishes which came via email from facebook last week.

They were lovely.

Unfortunately (?), facebook is blocked on our network (apparently the opportunity for time wasting is a grave danger) so I could not respond there.

But a big thankyou to everyone... it was lovely to have all your names pop up. And as I can't see all your updates on facebook, perhaps you'd like to leave a message here (just a small one, don't panic) to let me know how you are going? I'd really like that....

my boys

in the bath

Monday, 13 June 2011

We found Lachlan under the couch.

He must've wriggled his way under. Backwards. He didn't seem too upset.

We thought it was hilarious. After a while, he seemed to get the joke.

It was so good, Bethany joined him (look at that gap!).

Glen's D2/3 class

one small boy...

... came home from Kindy this morning and was playing with trucks on the front verandah with a friend.

Me: (calling out) Is Kindy finished?

osb: Yes!

Me: (looking out the back window and seeing lots of children still at Kindy) So if I go and talk to your teacher and if I find out that Kindy isn't finished yet, then...

patter of feet running off the verandah and back to Kindy!!

he has teeth!

Hooray. General cantankerousness and constant waking explained.

You might like this site for free musical scores.

I'm posting a series at the moment over at in-tandem.

It's not the first time I've written something about which I know others disagree. But it may be the first time that those others are close to me and precious.

It is for them, too, so that they know what I think and why. So that they hear it in my words and not in the words of those who scorn.

And it is an apology for those sharp words, quickly spoken and unexplained.

I hope that you will understand (if not agree) and forgive.
