Another gorgeous day!

We have been blessed lately with some beautiful weather in Sydney. The sun is shining and I am sitting here by the open back door enjoying the fresh air. I hate being cooped up inside with the heater on. I really hated May this year - it was SOOOO cold.

This is definitely one of the reasons I love living in Sydney.
In a week I am to fly down to Melbourne and drive out to Ararat (country Victoria) where the top temperature on a random day I checked last week was 9 degrees. The TOP temperature!! That's about our overnight minimum!!! The things we do for family.

That is also if we can get there. For the first time in a while we are flying down and hiring a car. I am so sick of driving such long distances with two kids by myself. It's become painful. And to make it more enjoyable we have to stop regularly, so the trip I done over two just seems like FOREVER.

Anyway....volcanic ash. Air traffic has been heavily disrupted in this part of the world due to the volcanic eruptions in Chile, and the ash being blown into our air space. It is being blown back the other way today, and flights seem to be returning to normal, but if the wind turns in the next week and blows it back this way again, we may be disrupted and grounded. If that's the case.......I don't know what I'm going to do. Worry about it next week I guess.

At the moment I'm dealing with Gastro. Yuk!!!!! I just picked Ardyn up from school looking very green, and apparently she was looking 100 times better than what she did when she first came to Sick Bay. She is currently in bed asleep. Bailey is under strict instructions to stay away from her.

When I picked her up I found out that it has been going through the school. It's hit Year 4 and Kindy over the last couple of Year 1's turn - just in time for the holidays. And it's not a quick but violent one from what I understand. It's one of those bugs that let's you feel better for a little bit and then hits you all over again. Can't wait.

Just an ordinary day in the life of a stay at home mum I guess.

I hope she feels better soon, and hope you have lots of disinfectant!

Will keep my fingers crossed that the ash stays away for you
