but i've been spinning instead! (photos soon)
i went back to work this week (for two days only) which was a bit of a shock to the system
the children return to school next Monday. Classes 5, 8 and 10, excuse me but how did that happen?
the middle child turned 14 and received his first mobile phone (he was by far the last kid in his class to get a phone apparently). his thrilled reaction? I feel like a REAL teenager now
we celebrated the final Saturday of the summer holidays with a last hurrah at the beach. two beaches in fact. first, Flinders pier, in order to leap off ...
followed by Merricks Beach (where I also went in the Spring) for a less windy and more pleasant swim and peruse of the weekend papers
there was a koala just as we entered the track to the beach
which reminds me, last week when we were at Wye River (Koala Capital of Victoria) the youngest boy and I were toiling up the hill from the beach to the house, when we practically tripped over a blue tongue lizard. son #3 picked it up off the road
there is no ten. nine was quite long enough.
