Lately ...

In 5 more weeks, term 3 of the school year will be over.
In 11 weeks, NZ Secondary School exams start.
In 15 weeks, the school year will be over.
In those 15 weeks are 2 weeks of holidays and 1 long weekend holiday for labour weekend.

I am looking forward to being away from work because it has been a hell-of-a-ride this year.

Shaily was 20 on the 9th of this month. We did not celebrate like we have done previously because ... she's a big girl and can throw her own party.

Hub's wanted to learn how to cook. She made $10 doing some gardening with Nan a few Saturdays ago and wanted to go to The Warehouse to buy herself ... a frying pan.

That was the night she learned how to scramble eggs.
I show her by doing it in my pan first.
She's pretty clever.

We poached eggs a few days later. I didn't get frying-pan-useage shots because she was freaking out about the yolk over cooking. The girl loves her runny yolk. It made me dry heave watching her sop it all up with her toast.

Tonight we stepped it up and got fancy.
Shrimp & spinach fettuccine.



She might love camarones more than I do.
And finally .. our boy.

Bought him a $2 gun.
Worst thing ever.
He lost 6 'pullets' in 2 minutes so now he sticks anything into the barrel.
Stones.
Q-Tips.
His tongue.
He shot his Mum twice and got in big trouble.
She'll be 26 on Saturday.

I opted out of the flu shot this year and have been sick all week with the flu. Don't know how I got through work today successfully. I feel like I'm about to die.
