day 221
thursday february 21 is nearly gone...the kids are at mum's tonight .
poppy is taking them to school tomorrow .
i start work at 7.45 so nan and pop come to te aid.
Pauls still on the Gold Coast
he participated in his event ,and scored a 3rd place :) :) :)
Im so proud of him,he is so great at his chosen sport of skateboarding.
but its just so much more than just rolling around,
he is an old school skater,ramps ,bowls,any skate park,
downhill,a little street ~but he values his joints to much~
off road~those boards are huge ~ and now slalom skating.
he has only been competing for the last 2 years and
99.9% of the time he scores a top 3 placing .not bad for a 45 year old
so yet again he scores a trophy ,
and some sponsors where sniffing around,
he will be charged when he gets home ..
heres my shot from today ,2 in fact
i couldnt decide..i even had 3 up here ,but that was too much
day 221.

after a long work day the kids and i slippped out for our thursday
night ritual meal.

evy has the falafel,asti the chicken,

and i have a mixed kebab.

i dont cook on thurday night !!!!!what about you???
