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.
