Week 23 contains two weekends as it's the change-over week to my new Monday to Sunday week numbering system. One weekend we had friends visiting over the Western Australia Day long weekend and the other we had nothing on and so got to painting the last side of the house! Finally!! Charlie had his first school social at the local hall and I'm cross that one of the older kids said over the PA during musical bobs that jumping is not dancing :( ..... 5 year olds do not need rules about dancing!!
We also had the pest guy come and treat the house for the white ants we found weeks ago and Charlie had a hearing test that showed he has hearing loss from fluid buildup behind his eardrums. We're hoping that once the fluid is gone his hearing is restored. Passport photos were taken against the wall in the dining area, so hard to take a nice picture when you aren't allowed to smile :/ I'm wondering if my application will be rejected on the grounds that I had my head tilted to side, because my eyes are at totally different heights on my face! If facial symmetry is supposed to equal beauty there went my modelling career haha.
And that is me caught up until Monday :)

hmm.... this isn't even a total catch up as we are already in week 24! I'm going to change my week numbering system I think so it starts at the beginning of the week on Mondays and brings me in to line with the way the week of the year calendars calculate what week we're in and see if that helps me get back in to the swing of posting
Well, we are well and truly in to winter now and the wind this week has been bitterly cold. There is exciting developmental milestones being hit by both the wee ones. Mia is drawing people with heads and Charlie has just started reading at Pre Primary. Charlie also had his first school social tonight.
Ian and I have been watching the 30 Days of Genius series on CreativeLive and have been inspired to start having cold showers! One of the interviewees talked about the benefits of ice baths and I quite like my minute and half blast of freezing cold water at the end of my shower. I love CreativeLive and have bought quite a few of their photography classes but they have all sorts of courses on different subjects and the best part is you can watch for free while they do the initial broadcast, it's awesome.
I hope you're enjoying your month and keeping all your balls in the air unlike myself!
