It is unreal that we are home but we welcome the security and reality that being back here brings. Though Campbell, our prone to sickness child due to the cold weather does not fully appreciate being home yet, but we are certainly glad to be reunited with friends, our jobs (well in a couple of weeks anyway for me) and our belongings and other clothes we own (I am definitely sick of the clothes I have had to wear for the last 9 months). Our wonderful Lesley (Andrew's mum) has generously offered to share her house with us while we recover. We have returned to find our dog Skipper well looked after and Lesley's new cat named Felix also sharing the same roof as us
On arrival back into Hobart we dropped off our luggage in New Norfolk then headed back into town to pick up Samuel from school and then take him to his soccer training in Sandy Bay, talk about straight back into the thick of things. Tuesday after school was another session of training, Wednesday was the Grade 8 social and then Saturday was his first game with his team Beachside Under 14s they lost but we won't mention the score, though there was talk about their regular goalie being away and the other team had fielded older boys from the next team up.
We have just been taking it pretty easy still, with work for me still about a week away and another week of school holidays left. The kids have been catching up with friends. Hannah has managed to land a role in an upcoming Hobart production of "Back to the 80s". While we were away Campbell managed to achieve the highest score in the State for the English Communication Exam last year and was presented in his absence an award for his achievement at Launceston College.
Thanks again to all those that offered us friendship, accomodation, kindness, service or just a smile. You are part of our adventure!!!
Thanks Andrew for the vision, I didn't quite catch it at first but it was something that we managed to make happen and we are the better for it. Thanks to the kids for putting up with us for the last 9 months.
Back at work last week and it was nice to be back to routine and friends.
PS. Should you be interested I will post more photos about different things and places, you are not obliged to look, just posting to keep it up. xxx
