    G'day, people.

    husband let me sleep in this morning. I estimate I had almost 10 hours' sleep, so I must have needed it.

    I managed to get difficult child 3 to finish his English schoolwork (at last!) which included him writing a poem, so I talked him through writing a triolet. I figured as he likes maths, a more mathematical form where lines get repeated, might suit him better.

    We then went to visit our neighbour the artist for the village artists' open day. His mural looks almost complete - they have at last got permission to set it up in the village hall (the only building which can take the whole thing in its full length) so they can put the finishing touches to it. It goes to the hall at the end of May, for a few days. After that he said people from our village are welcome to view it, and then I'm not sure, mother in law said she heard something on the radio about it going on display somewhere in Sydney before it goes to Malaysia. It really is amazing - he's had to study so much Malaysian history to do this, he has stacks of books with photos and history, there are hundreds of figures in the mural each one an important person in the history of Malaysia. Three artists' work in all, including our neighbour and his wife. It's been wonderful to watch this work develop over the last year.
    I had a peek in his wife's studio - she's got some new pieces in there as well, so the mural hasn't stopped her from her own work. I think most of her work on the mural is now complete, apart from when they join it all up in the hall.

    difficult child 1 & girlfriend arrived home so I sent them up to have a look too. girlfriend is also an artist, we're trying to get her to submit some work of hers in our next village exhibition.

    girlfriend stayed for dinner and left about half an hour ago, taking BF2 with her (he's going to stay with his parents for a few days). She just messaged difficult child 1 - she hit a wallaby on the road home, her car is a bit dented but they're all otherwise OK. Including the wallaby, too. It was a bit shaken, but it was able to hop away.

    Tomorrow husband & I see the pain specialist, which means we have to go "to the mainland" so I might as well do some shopping while I'm out. I need to talk to difficult child 3, find out if he wants to come with me or if he will stay home and work. Either tomorrow or Tuesday, difficult child 3 has to have his speech assessment.

    It's going to be a busy week!

    Enjoy your Sunday, everyone.

    Good morning! :coffee:

    Marg- You sound as busy as ever. I'm glad husband let you sleep, you must have needed it.

    I'm off to church in a few minutes. It's our last day for Sunday School as Pentecost is a little early this year. I'm relieved as I can use the break.

    Have a great day! :salute:

    Good Morning Everyone:coffee:,

    Marg, I'm glad you got some much needed:sleeping:!!! The village artists' open day sounds fascinating!!! I would have loved to have been able to join you... I'm glad girlfriend and the wallaby are ok!!! Hope all goes well with the pain specialist and difficult child 3's speech assessment.

    TM, You're always so busy!!! I'm glad you're going to get a much needed break from Sunday School - Just don't go scheduling anything else into that time slot, lol!!! ENJOY some quality "me" time instead!!!

    Today is another dreary, wet, rainy day around here. I sort of look like :bloodshot::coffee2: this today. Last week was very BUSY and this is going to be another very BUSY week too.

    difficult children have lots of appointments - psychiatrist, therapist, dental, etc... I also have a dental appointment and physical therapy/ultrasound therapy scheduled around work. easy child and difficult children have lots of after school activities. easy child also has her dog sitting job. It is a great opportunity for her as it teaches her responsibility and gives her some spending money which she really can use. However, it is also a bit of work for me too - She needs reminders to do certain things and help with a few others.

    On top of this, husband and I met with the SPED director last week. We let him know that we believe difficult child 2 needs a more appropriate program than what our local high school can offer him. The SPED director basically let us know that we're in for a fight. We're preparing ourselves for an all out war:warrior:!!!

    And, of course, difficult children are being total PITAs!!! :grrr::grrr:!!! Anyone want them??? I can have them out the door and headed your way ASAP. lol!!!

    As usual, I hope everyone has at least one reason to laugh or at least smile today:flower: WFEN
