Changing lives

I'm experiencing something weird...

The other Monday I started school holidays, Richard was on annual leave and the boys went to work.  Work???

After all these years of the boys and I being on school holidays together it's all over...I won't say it was all over in a flash, because sometimes the school holidays couldn't end quick enough but it seemed to happen all of a sudden.

Tom has a job as a seasonal firefighter with the Department of Environment, Water and Natural Resources.  He has a contract until the end of May.  It's his first real job and it all fell into place at the end of his gap year.  He's been involved as a volunteer firefighter with our local Country Fire Service for 5 years and this helped him get the job. 

Michael has a school based traineeship so during term time he works 2 days a week, goes to school 3 days a week and also has external studies to complete with a trainer.  At the end of 2013 he'll be a qualified Horticulturalist.  He'll be working most days during the school holidays.

So with Richard now back at work after 2 weeks off, I'm home alone...just me...very weird.
