Working bee

Zach and I went to the school working bee today, I worked my but off, raking mulch and other odd jobs. It was fun, Zach had fun too, he had a few other kids to play with.
I started chatting with one of the mums later in the day, her two oldest go the high school and she homeschools the younger four children, I think she is amazing to do that. I'm assuming she must be so organised. 
Her second youngest was playing with Zach and they so clicked even with a two year age gap. She was even making plans for Zach to visit. I'm like 'Whoa, let your mum work out when is best' I talked to her mum, she says 'that's the problem with homeschooling, they don't get enough social interaction' So we worked out, when I think Zach is due for a mental health day off school, we will visit. I love that Zach has made a new friend! and me too!
I was going through my photos the other day and discovered Zach took photos at Irish dancing. Cheeky Boy! 
The other week I bought some new mugs from kmart, they have combi-vans on them, cute hey!

Four huge garbage bags full!

Today I went to a Irish dance class, I was invited by my cryptic crossword friend, She is very good! It was fun and on Mondays that I'm not working, I think I will be dancing. Zach can sit and watch or play on his ipad. Before the class started, he wanted me to turn down the ipad volume so the dance teacher wouldn't get upset by the noise. He dosen't realise the hard dancing shoes drown out everything.
Very excited, today I also got the program for next years concerts for the MSO (Melbourne Symphony Orchestra) starting to choose which ones I'll go to.
Also looking online at whats on in darwin, I told my mum "just go and book tickets if you want" I've decided to book four weeks leave in the middle of next year for my Nullarbour trip and book tickets for the train on the way back. more time to save and also allow more time and go up to Alice as well and go see the red center too! plans and dreams
I am so nice and tolerant, Dim had left my spare room full of his crap since he moved out. I had asked him occasionally to pick up stuff. Now telling him. Sunday he picked up four huge garbage bags full of clothes and two boxes of stuff. He is a horder and was a bit overwhelmed by how much stuff he had left behind. The room still is chockers but he has started! What will I do with that room? more plans and dreams
Good night all xoxo

guilt f@#$*n guilt!

my parents have travelled to Darwin, they are visiting my oldest brother there. I have never visited Darwin and I haven't planned to in the near future either. I just got a text from the parents telling me to pick up my nieces from Brisbane next school holidays in September and take them to Darwin for the holidays and accompany them on the plane back to Brisbane when the holidays are over. the way it is worded is asking, but I know they telling.
I know my brother would like to see his daughters and Zach does like his cousins and I do have annual leave those school holidays and my brother hasn't seen his daughters since Christmas, Guilt F@#$%*n Guilt!
You see I had plans to go camping across the Nullarbour with Zach, just him and me and maybe a friend from work, on the open road, no constraints, no plans, freedom. Wildflower season, Whale watching, Treetop walk (maybe, heights freak me out!) Wave rock, Open road, No constraints!
But now, I am being guilted into spending my holidays with my brother and my nieces, I can't spend every day with them, they are very high maintenance girls. I want to be a tourist not a babysitter!
