It's been a long time baby

About time I wrote something before people stop visiting altogether.


House search

Still no place grabbing us. Is it too much to expect all the boxes to be ticked? I don't want to settle for "it's nice enough, but... (insert something not as good here)" The main reason we are finding it hard is that we are looking in the range that investors are looking in, so the good ones get snapped up quickly. More open homes on Sunday... I'd really love to be in by Xmas so I can spend the holidays pottering around. My favourite :)


Mr and Mrs Reading

Congratulations go out to my bestest friend ever, Sarah, and her new hubby Ronnie. Yay for getting married! In Rarotonga even! Party this weekend should be awesome. I have bought them the coolest pressie - As Sarah reads this blog I can't say what it is, but notkate will know it (from that shop in Greytown, think electricity...)


Prizegiving

Ours was at Lane Park, an old factory in Upper Hutt that has been turned into a church space. It's MASSIVE, but we had the entire student body from years 11, 12 and 13, a bunch of parents, family and 80+ staff, and it was completely full. Some people even had to stand. I remember about 4 years ago it was only about half full - either our roll has really grown since then or more people now take the 'compulsory' instruction seriously.

The Dux was a student I have never taught, but the joint Proxeme were students I taught in Year 10. Yay me!! Cos it's all about me of course. Actually, despite being a Dean I didn't even get to hand any prizes out - as they only used one of each dean from each house, and I got to do it last year. I played in the band though, so everyone got to see how cool I look with a clarinet in my mouth and a red face from playing it. Clarinets are so not sexy - Allyson Hannigan made the right choice with the flute, in my opinion.


Netball

I'm coaching a combined 10A/10B netball team against a visiting side from Aussie today - should be fun.

You shouldn't mind a place that needs decorating. Decorating isn't that expensive but is very time consuming. Doesn't everyone want a lime green bedroom?

Renovating where you move walls and stuff is both expensive and time-consuming.

Decorating = good
Renovating = bad

I agree :)

k LOVED her lime green and pink room at Hardy St...

Netball update - it WAS fun!

...if your idea of fun is playing in driving wind and rain and losing 13-33.
