Up to school this Saturday to clean and best I can for the ramp people who should be up to finish their work on Monday and my OHS inspection on Friday!
I drove past Eureka Stadium and it's all prepared for the big game. I'll watch it on telly.
It's 8:00 am and Walter the barber is open so I've popped in for a haircut.
I went to the doctor the other day and seems I have bronchitis. He's given me a puffer to use for s week or so to see if it helps and my son and daughter are trying to teach me how to use it but I'm pretty hopeless.
After work today I'll post my Mio's Kingdom unit on TPT.

Scene wheels for Mio's Kingdom

Miserable weather today. The Bulldogs are coming to town on the weekend 
Watching the DVD of Mio's Kingdom this afternoon.

Another interesting Thylacine photo

A thylacine or ‘Tasmanian tiger’ in captivity, circa 1930. The last thylacine died in captivity in 1936.

Growing beans in science

Filling our container with soil
We found a worm.
Planting seeds

Swimming #4

Seeing some real progress today.

SSM postal survey farce

New: The ABS is telling people it won't have a solution for overseas voters until two days before the rolls close.
Meanwhile there is discontent within the ABS
Also....Turnbull-One Nation deal on media ownership to give equal time for anti-vaxxers on ABC. Totally contrary to Govt policy. This is a disgrace!

Finished Mio sample

The scene wheel is a bit fiddly but turns out ok. I just need to make some labels describing what is happening in each scene. 
Bulldog clips help hold it together while it dries.
With label.
Sample story map

Karen at Balliang East gave us some new flags  at our Collegiate Group meeting last night so I can give our old Tattered Victorian flag a rest!

More blithering from Turnbull

Australian society will be torn apart if we change the date of a centuries-old tradition.....
1935 states agree on Australia Day date. 1938 Aborigines Day of Mourning. 1994 Australia day holiday. It's a rubbish day. Get rid of it.
And for those struggling with what is happening in the US, maybe this diagram will help?


At work on Mio tasks

Creating postcards and preparing a sample of the scene wheel for Mio's Kingdom.
I'll put the unit up on TPT on the weekend.
Started reading Wind in the Willows!


We went to the Ballarat Ten Pin Bowl today for a game. We did very well.

Timely Venn diagram

Art work this afternoon

No spring weather today

Back to winter today and the kids are finishing their 'Heroes' tasks and starting some work for Mio's Kingdom.
My Prep conned Alison into a 100 piece jigsaw puzzle and as part of her science work ( vegetables) we cooked some roast potatoes!

Glorious spring is nearly here!

It started off with a lovely rainbow this morning and ended with a glorious sunny day 
The kids made good use of the new playground and I tackled some more of the barkchips!
About a half moved.
Started to put up my Canterville Ghost display. 
I will read the last chapter of Mio's Kingdom this afternoon!
