The Sleepover Report

We're all home, all rested and the kids have just headed off to bed after watching 'Cheaper by the Dozen'. I just love that movie and we laughed a lot together!

The girls' night went well. They did manage to get some sleep, which they were very thankful for. Of the three Girls' Brigade companies that attended two were nice and one was.....not so nice to spend time with, apparently. In any case, they enjoyed the activities they did and the girls came home happy, albeit a little grumpy! They'd also been shopping at the little store at the venue they stayed at and both acquired items they'd been hankering for the last time they were there.

Mr Busy and I also had a good night. We went on a night walk and lit sparklers, on the oval. Then we crossed the driveway and went walking through the bush. Of course any self respecting animal had long since left the area, but we had fun and I think only Mr Busy's teacher ended up with a leech! We got all the kids into bed and had popcorn while watching 'Hoodwinked' and then we all snuggled down to sleep. The kids were great. They went straight to sleep and I think they all slept well. There was a frog toy that croaked when you squeezed it. Wouldn't you know it, the owner of that toy slept with the frog and rolled on it a couple of times during the night LOL. Then we had breaky and the kids went on another bush walk with their teacher while the three of us parents finished cleaning up.

All in all a good night for all. Dh even survived! He was able to do a load of washing in the middle of the night and make as much noise as he wanted when he couldn't sleep! He's inclined to insomnia when he's got work stuff on his mind, so this all suited him quite nicely too.

Then we came home at lunch time and we all had a nap. There were some nasty little people around here before that LOL.

A leech!? You went walking some place a leech could get stuck to you?!! I'm canceling my travel plans to Australia!

Frances, the leeches are only in the bush near the creek, at our school. Because we are in a semi rural to rural area, these things are there. A little bit of salt takes care of them though.
