Things I Know #2- School Holidays, rain and dogs

Welcome to another round of #TIK!!

Turns out I know a little more than last week which is always a positive!!

The Bad Stuff

  • Soccer was not only called off last week but has already been called off for this week.  Thanks for all the rain mother nature.
  • The end of daylight savings has sucked. Because I haven't changed all the clocks back yet I know what ti,e it should be.  5 20am on a Sunday is not an acceptable time to get up kids.
  • One positive on Mondays was when it rained at the 130pm which used to be the old school pick up time!!  Good try Mother Nature!!  
  • But seriously how much more can it rain??  
  • The dogs stolen food tally has increased dramatically the last few weeks.  This weeks effort includes- a box of cat food, 1 kg of plain flour, 1 bad of coconut, i bag of oats *we made ANZAC bickies this week!!), 1 box of le snack things and a box of baby muesli bars.  They must have their own set of keys as I lock the house up tighter than Fort Knox so they can'/t bust their way in.
  • Not that much bad stuff this week.  I have been head down bum up getting things done and haven't been annoyed too much lately!!
The Good Things

  • Although ask me next week how I feel about it!!
  • We are not allowed to finish off quietly with the Easter hat parade today, although I am secretly excited about it as I have never seen an Easter Hat parade!!
Apologies on the lateness of #TIK thanks to daylight savings ending I fell asleep before finishing it off!!
A big thanks to everyone who linked up last week.  There sure was spme interesting thongs last week.

So now is the chance to tell me what you know.


  1. So ... I'm guessing it rained a lot in your neck of the woods?? LOL. Enjoy the school holidays!

  2. I'm guessing you're in Melbourne? My son was complaining of the incessant rain just last night as he drove home from work - he was on speaker phone. I found it hard to concentrate on what he was saying because of the weird rhythmical noise in the background. And when he explained that it was his windscreen wipers I felt pretty stupid. I obviously can't put two and two together.

  3. I know what you mean about being thankful it's school holidays but not sure how long you will be thankful for !!!!
    Wow - that's a lot of food for a dog to eat - you need a nanny-cam or should that be dog-cam to see how they are getting in.
    Thanks for hosting such a great linky !!!!
    Have the best day !

  4. I know this week it should be Autumn but today was 35 degrees and the next three days are going to be in the low 30's, re sorting the wardrobe yet again. I'm thankful that school holidays don't affect me and the bonus is that traffic at rush hour during the school holidays is lighter xxxx

  5. We don't do Daylight Saving in WA anymore, but I remember the change overs were always difficult, all the more so with kids. Hope the holidays aren't too stressful! :)

  6. I know all about that 5:20am wakeup time. Mister 1 was up at 5am yesterday, definitely filling that one under The Bad Stuff!
    Thanks for joining with Sunday Brunch at Mums Take Five, Nic

  7. I hope the Easter Hat Parade went well! Netball got rained off for my younger ones yesterday too, they were devastated - as was I that Miss 11's 8am game went ahead, I was kind of hoping for a sleep in!

  8. An easter hat parade sounds interesting!! Enjoy the holidays! xx Lucy from Bake Play Smile

  9. Easter hat parades are so much fun, though the making of said Easter hat not always so much. Hope you have a wonderful break, I am a tad jealous because ours is over already :(
