But then I also look at it that my kids are hardly ever sick, they don't do sport and get to spend days/ weeks away from school doing sports stuff, so a day off here or there (and this one does get 2-3 days off a term just because really!) really does not matter. If they ever had me up, I'd just say the kid is BORED all round; has been for 2 years. And yeah extension classes won't work; he's already in the top stream and has lots of NCEA credits a year ahead, and he is lazy too. Pushing him to do stuff he does not want to do does not work either! SIGH.
Anyway, I am rather enjoying life. I swear yesterday was spend sorting paper work, getting stuff sent off to the NZ Education Council, Christmas cards and packages out, another knitting project started, a wee bit of stitching, writing in scrapbooks and a bit of online shopping (one of which has arrived less than 24 hours after ordering from half way down the country! Yay for TLeaf! Christmas Tea sorted!).
I was so lazy that I had my supermarket shop delivered to me - bit dismayed at the plastic bags, but I'm informed they are stopping in 5 weeks - yay. I have not used plastic for centuries!
