Running Away From Home...

Bit of a lazy post today...I found this clip yesterday while checking out another and just loved it. It's too good to keep to myself. I enjoyed it even more when I discovered the boy's name was Magnus...I have a special little friend also named Magnus who is quite like this boy...thoughtful, very smart & has an original answer for everything.

Enjoy...



Matilda gets home from Noumea this evening...am really looking forward to seeing her and hearing her travel stories...if running true to form she will not stop talking for many hours then fall in a tired heap. No doubt she will be quite exhausted, she will have had a week of very late nights (she usually needs 9-10 hours sleep each night) and very full days. We have no plans for tomorrow and are planning a gentle day...it is the last day of school here in Queensland and students are "encouraged" not to attend...the schools cannot officially condone taking the last day off however do not mind if the students do not attend. I love the Summer break, 6-7 weeks off school and no real plans. Matilda and Myles will probably both travel to Victoria to spend time with their grandparents in the New Year, if only Josh would go away too then John & I could have a "holiday" here at home.

Hmmmm...that means it's my last child free day at home alone today for some time...better make the most of it. Might get some Christmas shopping in.

LMAO!! That was so funny, except Eric was secretly looking over my shoulder...ahem. When it finished he just looked at me blankly. (I wonder if Karin will face a situation like that? I hope not!! The escape, not the looking over the shoulder.)

Love to Matilda. I know she will have had some special experiences over there.

Love to you all. I hope that your back improves. Thinking of you!!

That was funny! Enjoy your last child free day. How exciting - your daughter will have some great experiences to share. Schools dont break up for another week down south - different all over the ocuntry it seems.

I love the bit where he says he knows america has got a bad rep but it's caugh!

You MUST post pics and all about Matilda's trip! I love summer vacation too, even though it's not really the same as I rarely if ever get a kid free day.

I do hope you and John get a bit of alone time at home, maybe you could offer Josh money to go stay at a friends house?

I'm looking forward to hearing how it all went for Matilda!
