Single Bed

Classic Single Bed

Anna has been busy this week, ensuring that all her normal duties have been covered off so that she can spend some time on her “work experience”. It seems to have gone fairly well so far, and she has been involved in projects for a couple of different clients.

During the week, I got a call to say that the single bed we had ordered (for when Caitlin graduates from her cot) has arrived and is ready for pick-up. Although the cot we have is plenty big enough at the moment, it didn't seem to make much sense to buy another cot for #2. One of the tips from our recent “toddler handling” class was to try and implement any changes prior to the arrival of the second baby - so we hope to have Caitlin feeling used to and comfortable with the bed before he arrives.

What an experience!

See me Finish

Although I haven't been doing a lot of running recently, I decided to join the fun of the annual “City to Surf” on Sunday. Starting from the “back of the pack” group, I managed to complete the 14km course in just over 90 minutes. As always seems to happen, we were once again blessed with great weather for the event so that the main injury I sustained was a bit of sunburn on my head!

Meanwhile, Anna has got agreement from her current employers to complete some of the work experience required for her graphic design course there (around an hour a day). This is really great news because, although she has previously helped out with one or two pieces of work, she has been allocated time to do this - so that the studio manager can assign tasks to her, and know that she has the time to complete them.

Bye Bye Auntie Amy

Amy's Photos

Amy & Gale headed back to the UK at the start of the week, we hope they both had an enjoyable trip to Australia - click on the photo above to see some more of Amy's photos.

On Wednesday evening we arranged for a friend to look after Caitlin while we attended an ante-natal class, a “Toddler Information Evening”, which covers topics regarding how to best introduce your new baby and toddler to each other. Overall, it was useful to get some tips and thoughts for what promises to be a hectic few months...

Winter in Sydney

Winter in Sydney

After a few days of average weather, the weekend picked up nicely for Amy and Gale and we were able to make the most of our walk from Bronte to Bondi and back. Having come so far, we insisted that they should both go in the sea at Bondi - so they took Caitlin with them to dip their toes in. Amy got caught a little by surprise and ended up a little wetter than planned - fortunately, the sun soon dried her off though!

After lunch at Dick's Hotel on Sunday, it was off to the airport for their trip north; and Anna was able to get some well-deserved rest after a hectic week of socializing.
