    9 year old takes a knee

    We used to do God Save the Queen and Advance Australia Fair every Monday morning (primary school in outer Western suburbs in Melbourne)
  5. Hey Rimmer - nothing to add re: work (as I know nothing of this line of work or the complexities of FIFO). But I changed employment into Education just under four years ago, specifically early childhood. I work between schools, early years and community and "try" to get the senior leaders from each to together and start to work collaboratively together..... I don't have children (not by choice, just by circumstance). But we work with families from all work of life, all circumstances and complexities....and I work across all of FNQ QLD. So I see and hear many things. The first 3 years are critically important for children. Being with them, talking, reading (yes, from the day they are born....), engaging them in all aspects of family life is so important for brain development.......consider the opportunity that is before you both. It is a one time opportunity. I have really learnt so much over this time......and yes I am data / research nerd so don't do things by half measures. Again such a happy moment for you both. Look forward to hearing all the exciting times coming up for you both. And I never got to say thank you to you both last year, for helping me out and leaving a message for my family. You went out of the way for a trannie you have never met and I have never forgotten this....thank you.

    The good news thread

    FM.....I was sorting out through some photos and other on the weekend. I just out of the blue messengered the 10 girls and said it was way too long. We are all over the place but time to catch up after 13 years. Most of us have known each other 39 or 31 years.......

    What training did you do today...

    I swam for ten minutes today.......first time in like many years. Had to go to Daiso to buy cheap goggles. In BNE, again, so swam in the hotel. Haven’t checked in for a while.....I just stopped running a few months ago. Few tiny runs, but have absolutely no interest. On my 11th overnight trip from home this year, 9 work related, a bit over travelling......

    2018 Goals-what are they ?

    My neighbour is still beside himself (I can still hear him laughing and talking to his mates). He is also our landscaper (we have a verge large complex), and he has idolised him for that many years he has worked in landscaping. By the way, that is Costa analysing my super giant tomatos. Needed to redeem myself after we laughed at how well I can grow giant zucchini leaves.....

    2018 Goals-what are they ?

    One of my goals was to grow more veggies.....does this level of expert advice count. Knew he was coming for a Manoora Community Garden afternoon event. We literally walked onto the plane aerobridge at the same time at 8pm last night. A random conversation, have met a few times, a swapped number and a surprise visit today. My neighbours were besides themselves when I said he would be here in 10 minutes. Such a gentleman.
