Home of A Needleworker Too
DH was away last weekend and it was wet so here is where I'm up to. We have another wet weekend forecast so I'm hoping to do more.
Queensland school holidays this year at easter are chaotic. School has 4 terms per year, 2 semesters of 2 terms each. Each term roughly 10 weeks followed by 1-2 weeks holiday with a big break over summer in December/January. Because easter is late this year the official first term is 12 weeks followed by 12 days holidays then term 2 is 9 weeks long. DD goes to a private primary school which follows the government holidays so she finishes today (Thursday) and starts back the Wednesday after easter/anzac day holidays.
DS goes to a private high school who had different holidays this year. His first term was 9 weeks, then he had 2 weeks holidays and started term 2 on Tuesday. He has the 5 days public holidays off over easter. His term 2 is 10 weeks long. He gets more holidays than DD anyway. So I've got two children who have holidays at different times and are only off together for 5 days when we can't go away because DH is flying to Vancouver on Easter Monday/Anzac Day! Luckily I work from home so it isn't too bad, I just had to get that frustration out of my system.
Next week DD has to come with me when I'm on tuckshop roster again at DS's school.
Someone asked about tuckshop. It is the kitchen/shop at school where we prepare and sell food for the students to eat at lunch and morning tea if they don't have food from home. It is run by 2 paid convenors and staffed by 3-5 volunteers every day. I'm rostered on one day every 4 weeks working 8.30am to 2pm. Any profits go to school projects. This year it is towards refurbishing the library.
