This post will probably be of most interest to Jane and John but others are welcome to read.
On Sunday Martin and I began our two weeks of looking after Hannah. That day we took her church with us and after church I took her to the beach. It was too cold to swim but a clear blue day, perfect for hot chips and a lie around in the sand. I actually really like the beach in Autumn and Winter. There is always far less people so it is more serene and relaxing. Then we went to visit Ryan for tea and figs. Ryan has a very good backyard for Hannah, quite big with lots of branches to break. Ryan and I then decided to go to the ten dollar jean sale to get jeans. They ended up been $20 but that is still very good for jeans and the man in the shop was super friendly. I was a bit worried this wouldn’t be very fun for Hannah but she waited very patiently.
On Monday (thanks to Jane’s very detailed manual) I got her off to school alright. Her respite was cancelled in the evening but that was okay as I don’t work Monday’s so was home to meet her. There was some confusion with the driver but I managed to sort all that out relatively easily. Tuesday went smoothly as well.
All in all we are having lots of fun. Hannah has been a delight and has almost always cooperated with whatever is happening. I am also enjoying living in Hornsby for a little while. It is much quieter than Glebe and there are so many trees. I was a bit disappointed though that the pool’s heating system is not working very well but I managed a swim.
