Madness as usual

Sorry I didn't check this sooner or call you mum, since I spent all day yesterday home in the girls' room. Oh well.
Yes, school holidays. I'm assuming I passed my last placement and will be right to continue with Diploma next semester. I ended up working the last Friday of school then did an 8 hour day on Monday as well. The first Saturday of the holidays we ended up over at the Parker's for the night and I showed Belinda how to make snowflakes for Ella's Frozen party. Sunday I was feeling exhausted, we went to bed around 1am and I've been feeling full up with a head cold since finishing placement. As a result I missed going to Craft Alive but I wanted to rest up for work. It was freezing Monday morning, the car was iced over when I went to leave at 7.45am. I finished at 5pm after a day with 3-4 year olds which ended with an accident - yeah, cleaned up a poopy pre-kinder, ekk. Anyway, told them I couldn't do Tuesday (7.30am-4pm) and instead took the girls to see Inside Out at the cinema with Julie-Anne and Mitchell. Came home to cook, I made Ella's birthday cake, blue toffee to decorate it and blue fudge. Called Belinda, she was at Spotlight getting 40 balloons filled with helium so I packed up our stuff and met her there to help get the balloons back to her house. We stayed the night again and I decorated the cake, her sister had already helped decorate the house. Wednesday morning we were mostly ready for the party to start at 10.30 and I think it went really well. We would have stayed that night too but Trinity wanted to come home after tea. At least the house was put back together and tidied up.
I had 2 calls for work but really don't want to at this point, I stayed home Thursday and completely emptied the girls' room. I said anything without a home at the end of the day would be gone, but also emptied their wardrobe so now they have their clothes in there - previously it was full of toys and their clothes were in my room.
Today, Friday, Trinity had a dentist appointment at 9am, her last filling, now she's right for 12 months but next week we start with Daria's check up. We went from there to visit Julie-Anne and ended up having lunch with her. She was minding 2 extra boys so it was a full house. The girls have wanted to visit Adam and Connor all week so we planned to drop in and see how they were, but Belinda J asked me to watch her boys while she took her dog to the vet, so we left there around 3.30pm. The girls still wanted to visit the boys, we left there at 5pm. So a busy day today. Tomorrow we need groceries, will check out Damien's Iaido seminar before lunch, then the girls want to visit Adam and Connor again and sleep over. Sunday is the Lego Expo. No plans Monday but Tuesday Trinity has been invited to a birthday at Jumpz, we're having lunch with Nanna and co, and then Daria has a dentist appointment at 2pm.
School holidays... Busiest time of the year as far as I'm concerned lol
