    Slate grey would look nice, the black stands out too much with such a light coloured building. Yeah, keeping very busy. Only got 3 more weeks until the end of the school year then I'm off for 6 weeks. I'm also trying to get my Cert III stuff finished by the end of the year. The teaching year for them finishes on the 1st of December so I've got to get my typing speed tests done by then One unit I haven't even started cause I haven't gotten the learner guide or assessment for it

    Cool thanks, I'll double check them to be sure. And probably a good idea Anywho, best be off to bed. I only was planning a quick visit cause I've got stacks to do tomorrow (always the way during holidays... of course it doesn't hurt to do actual stuff rather than play video games )

    Ah, okay then. Pretty sure I'll grab them off Photobucket and post them in here, so you can add them. EDIT: Okay, here we go... the Mikamite jar is the logo, Mika Hut and Mikacard are fairly self explanatory, the goat is Beryl Geranium, the camel is Sparkles (not the same but it'll do), the pic of Mika with the cookie is the Subway one and the Keep Calm one is under the bit on Raffa.

    Oh, I just noticed that at least a few of the images aren't loading on the first post so I'll have to see if I have them saved.

    Apparently they did. The ranger followed one of them home. The owner wasn't co-operating at first so I believe they got the police involved, though I think they eventually surrendered them. They'll end up being put down, if they haven't already. Yeah, I'm not too sure why he's not talking. The speech pathologist thought his understanding of language was behind where he should be (It could be receptive language issues, going by what I've read). We're still in the process of getting him assessed. The Paediatrician is apparently good with language issues, so we'll soon see how that goes.Sam's def happy as long as he has food and toys. At least his social skills are developing. Oh, that's lucky! Sometimes is so hard to get tradies in to do stuff, you almost don't want to jinx it if they are able to come fairly quick. Hopefully the weather takes a while before it starts getting cold and miserable. Oh, and here's a pic of the t shirts I did. I'm pretty pleased with how they turned out :biggrin2:

    Sounds very busy! Been a bit busy here too. Far as I can tell, it's still ongoing with a few. I'm still trying to work out how some of them didn't know they were dual nationals So, I've been working pretty hard - working as a teacher's aide (the department calls them School Learning Support Officers, or SLSOs - they love their acronyms! ). The school hasn't had a good few days, the indigenous girl's group room got broken into over the weekend and they broke the big tv and stole a stereo and a laptop, then this morning two dogs got into the Ag farm and killed about 20 sheep, plus an adult alpaca and the baby . I've been also helping with some stuff for mum as she's running for the local council, plus Mayor (we get to vote for Mayor, who will stay in for 4 years rather than the councillors voting every year). It's been a bit of a s**t fight, the current councillors are acting like children, including one that couldn't fill in the form correctly and got excluded because he left handing the form in till the last minute and didn't have time to fix it (he had a hissy fit and went to a solicitor, then the electoral commission allowed him in so they had to redraw for the form). I just printed out some iron on stuff for t shirts for Zoe, Britt and I to wear, so I'll have to take a pic to share. What else... I've got a few appointments sorted out for Sam so we work out why he's not talking. So we're testing his hearing again, having a follow up with the speech pathologist and a visit to the Paediatrician. We've also got a few day and overnight trips coming up, so flat out!

    Oh yeah, that was pretty gross! I'm pleased I haven't been eaten like that! How have you been? Microscopic bugs with teeth! I think someone said they were fleas or something. Either way, it's not something that they usually do.

    Thank you so much for organising it all Deb How lovely of Mika

    Oh, just thought I better let people know that I donated some money to go towards a MFC donation/flowers for FD's funeral from the Aussies.

    Damn it, I lost my quotes! Anyways, just wanted to say a few things: Rose: Anne: Def think the book is a good idea. I know Angel's parents were appreciative of the book when I sent it, I bet David's family will be too. Deb: I'm happy to go with whatever everyone else wants to do re: money (which seems to be going with donation/flowers). Also, I'm glad Mika knows.No doubt he appreciates that someone told him the news. Also, Mika:

    I'm pleased MFC are sending some flowers, I'll be sure to add some cash to the PayPal account. EDIT: I've just paid some into the MFC account and wrote it from the Aussies. I did it using family and friends, hope that's okay.

    That was the day that he and Cassie handed over the Aussie petition (I think it was about May 2009)! I remember seeing all the pics they took of the kangaroo and crocodile on stage! I haven't seen that pic in years! We were so grateful to him (and Cassie of course) for helping the Aussies out then. He really was an Aussie at heart

    Same. Loved those days, especially how close we all were, despite how far away some of us are from others. I was very shocked when I saw Rose's post on FB. I was hoping it wasn't the same David, but when she said FD I was very shocked. I didn't even know he was sick. Then again, I hadn't talked to him for a very long time.

    I'm a bit the same Deb. David and I had our differences occasionally, but we still talked. RIP David, we'll miss you
