At any rate, just a quick summary of what's going on so far:
I've been on a health kick. I know, I know. I've said that before but this time I'm actually seeing some results. I shouldn't say anything lest I jinx it so suffice to say that diet and exercise actually works.
The past week had the wife and I finish painting the interior walls to our kitchen and dining room. It was a quick weekend job and it being the long weekend last week, it was as good a time as any to finally finish it. After moving the fridge and other furniture around it didn't take too long to clean and paint the walls and now we've got a nice beach type feel going on with the browns and blues coming together.
Of course, you have to imagine the above scenes without the mess.
As for the kids, the boy just got an award today during their weekly school assembly for "Showing friendliness to others, supporting his peers and giving his best work in class". He's been enjoying his new class immensely and seems to be thriving very well there with quite a few praises for his reading and mathematics skills.
The girl has also been getting top marks in her weekly tests. She's doing weekly tests this term because there will be, as part of the Aussie curriculum, standardised tests given to all South Australian pupils at her year level to mark their progress and she's been really working hard on it.
With that, I don't think I have much more to report on but I hope I don't wait for one more month before I post again.
