Miss Muppet starts school today.  First full school day, for the next TEN YEARS at least!  Luckily, she doesn't know that... YET.

Because Keera was attending Kindergarten 5 days a week, nothing will change much for me and my days... except she will be 'out' till 3 pm every day now.  

Not wanting to take the thunder out the day for Keera, but there is another little snippet of news.

Lacy starts on a 36 week course today, one that she got selected to attend.  She was one of 25 out of 60 applicants who got approved to attend.
I know, amazing eh?  AND she passed all the tests and interviews too... even with her 'dodgy' history!  

I'm not going to say what the course entails, but if she passes, she will be guaranteed a job at the end of it.  In a most UNLIKELY field of work too!  Jailbird, but not behind the bars is a clue.

I've got patchwork this morning, so I better go and sort out what project I'm taking to work on.

Catch ya later.


1.20 pm:  School drop off went well.  Keera refused to even look at her teacher to start with, but after half an hour she was yakking away like she was one of the family!
So, I had no trouble leaving her there and coming home.

I went to Patchwork group at 10, and froze my buns off.  Seriously, the hall had heat pumps on, and it was freezing.
So I didn't stay for long, I don't like being cold THAT much, particularly when you are just sitting there.

Lunch has been had, and now?  Dunno... thought I might just potter around in the house, do a couple of odd jobs, prepare dinner and so on.

ABOVE: Home after her 1st school day.  And by all accounts, she's had a wonderful day.

There are THREE children in her class!  The numbers will grow as the term progresses, but for at least the next 2 weeks, it will be just the three of them.  2 girls and 1 boy.

The teacher asked each child to tell her ONE thing that they loved the best today.

Little boy:  "Playing with the cars".
Little girl:  "Drawing pictures".
Keera:  "Playing on the playground, and drawing, and running, and reading, and the sandpit, AND... and ... and... " !!!!  She couldn't stop once she got started.  So cute, and funny.

Well... I thought it was funny.

I'm very happy she had a neat day.  Here's hoping it continues.

Ate a dodgy mandarin this afternoon, now have a shitty tummy... not nice.  Rather thankful I didn't have a walk booked in for tonight.  My next one is tomorrow morning... I better feel better by then!

Spending the evening relaxing and doing bugger all ... these new lounge chairs are very warm and comfy.  *smiles*

    Have a great first day of school Keera! Congratulations Lacy ( aka Jailbird) that is awesome news and I wish you all the best.

  8. Have a great day at school Keera! Congrats to Lacy. Working in a jail is certainly recession proof. There'll always be a need!! My nephew is a peace officer at the provincial jail here and he loves it. Just an FYI when he got the job he was told to tell all his relatives with the same last name to only use their first names on social media-which everyone has done. Can't be too safe!!
