That is all. Unless I can find something worth yakking about.
I am starting to feel like I am blogging about nothing.
What are YOU doing?
Bex and I drove over to my Sister-in-Laws for lunch. It was really lovely to spend a couple of hours with her in her gorgeous back yard.
Dante LOVED her water feature.
I have squillions of photos of that. But I will hold off showing you right now... cos I've got news!!!
The Good: My sewing machine has been repaired and is ready to be picked up.
When I dropped it off the repairman said he would not be able to even look at it for 2 weeks or so.
And of course, it was going to cost AT LEAST $120.
Upshot? Repaired in less than a week. AND NO COST.
I am so happy about that.
The NOT So Good: While driving home from West Auckland, my phone rings. Bex takes the call... and then holds the phone up to my ear to talk to ... Brylee's 'Home' Class Teacher.
He informs that there has been an incident in Brylee's Maths class today that he needed to talk to me about.
SADLY, I immediately think "Oh hell, what has she done?".
A boy in her maths class had 'presented a knife in class', and while no one came to any physical harm... Brylee was very upset and was spending the rest of the day with the school Counsellors.
I was a bit like "OH HELL, what have we done sending our kid to a school like that?" But the teacher said it was the first time (ever), he had this sort of situation happen.
So, I offered to come and get Brylee, but he said she was fine and would come home as per usual. I was OK with that.
We had a chat about how Brylee is a 'Drama Queen', we both laughed and agreed she was no doubt going to blow it out of all proportion for a while!
Still... I am sure it was very scary for her. I'm going to let her let off steam when she gets home and we shall just deal with it.
I do wonder if she might be a bit scared to go back ? Time will tell.
So, would ya look at that? I found something to yabber on about.... eventually!
Don't ya just envy my life? Really? NOT.
I don't go LOOKING for drama, I really don't!
So. Brylee gets home and fills in the blanks.
The boy was fighting with a girl in the class. Then he pulled a knife on her. The kids in the class all scatter, but Brylee was scared shitless and got tangled up with her school bag.
Then Brylee gets up from her chair and in her haste to get out of the room, tripped and fell over! She has a graze on her elbow and a sore cheek, but otherwise OK physically.
The maths teacher got cut on his arm disarming the boy apparently.
So just a bit more 'scary' hearing the full story.
A few photos from today:
End of Day: well! It started out with me being in a right shitty... and ended quite well! It was an eventful day after all.
Hope you liked todays photos, cos I've got more to share tomorrow... AND TREASURE to be gotten.
