There was a comment left last night from 'ANON'. It made me feel sad and annoyed.
Because I am 100% sure I know who it was from. She has some 'tells' in her language that probably only I would pick up on, but maybe a few others too.
BRYLEE and GRIFFIN are of course, not thrilled to bits to be moving schools. BUT. They have had a year to get used to the idea. A year to grow up some more and be more 'adult' in their reaction to us moving.
They know it can't be helped, and we all have to make sacrifices now and then for our family. It's called LIFE, and I am very proud of MY kids for how they are behaving.
They are looking forward to our move, because it means life will be settled again, and their DAD will not have to commute so far every day.
They love our new home. They love that it means an adventure and a new life experience for them. Kids adapt. You can't protect them from every life event that might happen... and moving home/school is one of them.
They were not smiling, their eyes showed they were unhappy? REALLY?
I wish nasty minded people would just keep their ignorant comments to themselves. Cos clearly they don't know ME, or MY KIDS that well... if at all.
And it's worth noting, thousands of kids have to change schools every day in the world. It's not like I'm sending them down a mine to dig for coal, or to a rubbish dump to find food!
They are spoilt rotten kids. They get virtually everything they desire, and more. Poor darlings have to change schools??? OMG. OUTRAGEOUS.
And on that note... I will change subjects.
Today I am ordering a Queen size bed for the new spare bedroom.
Usually when we have guests stay over, we make Brylee or Griffin get out of their bedroom so the visitors can have a bigger bed. (OMG! Poor kids!)
But as we will have some spare cash, we are getting a bed for guests. I'm looking at a queen size bed that has a base that lifts up, where you can store bedding under. It's quite neat.
ABOVE: it looks like I will be able to store quite a lot of spare blankets and duvets under there. Excellent, as the one thing the new house doesn't have is a lot of storage.
We will work on that issue once we are there. Maybe put an attic ladder in the garage and use the roof space. Not sure yet. But we have plenty of time to work it out.
Well... I let my fingers do the walking... luckily. Cos not one Harvey Norman Store in the country has the bed I want to buy. I want to actually SEE it before I buy it. The Hamilton Store is working on it right now, to see if they can get one for us to look at.
Weird that they advertise it, yet don't stock it.
Oh well, I'm sure it will work out eventually.
I had a rude awakening this morning! A man phoned and asked to see the freezer I'm selling ... and he wanted to come at 7 am! I'm like "Are you kidding?" Nope. He arrived, looked at it, and wanted to buy it right then and there.
I had to say NO, as there are people bidding on it, so the auction has to run it's course. He wasn't that happy, but the rules with TradeMe are pretty precise. After he left I crawled back into bed to warm up.
Today it's not raining, but it is freezing! I turned both the heaters on. Brrrrr.
Yaaa, just heard from Harvey Norman's in Hamilton, they are getting one of those beds in for us to look at... just after we move into the Cambridge home.
Things are so falling into place for us... *smiles* (and about bloody time too)
An awesome day today, I got heaps done/accomplished. I do believe I have done virtually everything I need to, up till now.
I shall have to do a mail re-direction request ... but I'll do that in the next day or two.
