Well, Christmas has come and gone, and it was as wonderful as always. In the week between it and new year’s I’ve read 9 novels, slept many nanna naps and seen quite a few Dr Phil shows. I also discovered that the school has thousands of movies I can access from the library website, so I’ve caught up on heaps of movies I either haven’t seen for years (hello ‘Romper Stomper’) or I was always going to get around to seeing. My fitbit steps have gone to hell, but I’m feeling really well-rested and happy. Time for a new year!
The love that Scout feels for Daphne has only become deeper with time. The level of tolerance that Daphne exhibits towards Scout has deepened too. A bit.
In the final month of the school year, Scout was coming into work with me on the days that David23 had work and couldn’t feed her lunch. Which, working in a kitchen in the lead-up to Christmas, was almost every day. We’d ride in on the train together,
we’d walk I’d carry her up the road to the school and then she’d come to all my classes with me.
The kids loved her! Especially the naughty year 9 boys, which was a bit of a bonus for me. I’d agree to let them hold her if they sat still and did their work. Considering everyone in that equation was a wriggly puppy, it worked a treat. She’s the most well-socialised puppy in Melbourne, because with over 2,000 kids wanting to pat her, she’s certainly not afraid of strangers.
Morale in my staff room has never been higher. She didn’t put a foot wrong the whole time she was there… thank goodness. Then at the end of the day we’d ride the train on the way home, then off we’d go to the beach.
I love this shot. Poppy was mesmerised.
Next year I go back to work full-time, so I’m soaking up these holidays.
This financial post says it all. I read it a few days ago and it encapsulates exactly how I live my life.
