+ We are spending the Easter long weekend with my sister and her family. We are planning on pulling out an old tank with a big leak, and perhaps head to Canberra to go to Questacon. The kids are looking forward to playing with their cousins, and are hoping for an Easter egg hunt.
+ My school did an earth day ‘thing’ yesterday. We were not allowed to use any electricity from 11am. Can I just say how hard it is to teach Technology when you are not allowed to use electricity. The primary kids kept coming around to check whether we were doing the ‘right thing’. I got in trouble for using my laptop that was charged, and my mobile phone. In the afternoon it was very dark and rainy, so we could hardly see at all. All in all I was glad when it was over. I’m sure it made a good point, but it is rather hard to do without electricity entirely these days!
+ The days are getting shorter now, and even though the days are warm, the nights and mornings are cool. It is reminding me that winter is on it’s way, and I don’t like being reminded! The trees are beginning to change colours too. The seasons seem so much more pronounced here on the farm, and although it is getting colder, Autumn is certainly beautiful!
