Dis and Dat! 2 Jobs 4 kids and STUDY!

Life has stepped up a gear...


I am now working two jobs still at Toy Library (LOVING it) and now at DOCS (Community Services) Doing contact work which is picking up foster kids taking them to access with the parents (supervising the access) then taking them back to their foster parents. The only access I don't and cant do is Flowers.

I have to say that it has been such an eye opening experience been on the "OTHER SIDE" of it all. How the kids act around their parents.
Some of these kids have been put though hell and back yet the love they still have and show and the awe they have for these parents blows me away.

I can really see that this new job will teach me to open my eyes a little wider and be thankful for the life I have had.

Still studying but have changed track a little I am doing Diploma of Community Services (Case Management) and Allan has decided to do this as well so we are both heads down bums up!

Kagen, Tiarna and Arliah are LOVING school! Arliah hates the weekends and wants to go to school then as well! LOL!

I am heading to Sydney in May and still waying up all my options of getting there~ I could go by BUS/TRAIN which would have me leaving Broken Hill at 3AM and getting to Sydney at 8pm THAT night!

or

I could FLY leaving Broken Hill at 6:30am and getting into Sydney mid morning and having the day to recover before I need to do 2 workshops for my study!

It all comes down to $$$$$ as there is a BIG difference! from $200 to $500..

Flower is now rolling ALL the way over! She is such a smart little cookie and has a smile that EVERYONE says could melt ice on a cold winters day!
