I am back at work as of this week. Last week was lovely though as we didn’t have any commitments and just spent the days relaxing and doing little bits and pieces.
We went to the pool with some friends one warm afternoon, we saw the movie Gulliver’s Travels. We slept in, we stayed up late. It was just lovely.
I even managed to get some shopping in. The Surfer took the boys to a golf driving range and I took his daughter shopping as she had some Christmas money burning a big hole in her pocket. We went to the local shopping centre first where she spent most of it.
We then went to the op shop and she had about three dollars left. She chose a couple of things and when I looked at the price, one item was $18. I wouldn’t have minded putting a few bucks in for her but I said that she didn’t have enough money and she’d have to put that one back. It was a bit of a lesson in budgetting for her. She bought a necklace and I think I put in about a dollar to make up what she didn’t have.
At least I have the next bit of time off to look forward to. We’re going away with another family to the Great Ocean Road in Victoria in about a month’s time. Hopefully the rain and flooding has stopped there by then. I can’t believe how much flooding has been happening in Australia this year. Luckily in South Australia we’ve been pretty lucky. Some places near the Murray River will get some water but I’m not sure how much yet.
