** Sold the car on Trade Me - we are now down to just the van. Two less bills to pay :)

** Ricki had his school formal last Friday night. He had a great time. Went with a group of mates and then they went to the after party later. Stumbled home at 4am the next morning.
**Had Joshuas parent teacher meetings. I came home with LOTS of things to chase him up about. Hasn't done the majority of his homework . . . talks too much in class (that isn't a surprise!) . . . doesn't focus on his school work in general. Quite a bit of work needs doing with him. He has caught up with most things now, so it's just a case of keeping on top of it, and trying to get him to be more organised.

**Karl has had a change of work days. Is now doing Monday to Friday and straight away has joined up with a soccer team so he can start playing again. He goes for his drivers licence at the end of the month - finally.

** Mothers Day was celebrated in Picton having lunch with MIL, SIL and our niece Carlene. Worked out quite well, because it was Carlenes birthday the next day, so it was a double celebration.

**Tomorrow after school I have Liam and Rickis parent teacher meetings. Hopefully they will be a bit more positive than Joshs!!

**Tomorrow night we are going out to Rickis Chef Training evening. After seeing the menu, it should be a really nice night.

**Friday night Dallas and I are going out to the Ferrymans Restaurant. We won a voucher on the radio for our last anniversary. Might get to watch the Hurricanes win the semi-final on the big screen while we're there :)

**This is our house as of today . . .
The guttering is up and hopefully tomorrow the roofing will start.
