It is Walk to School Day today. Here are some school-kids (Cherub and his best friend) Walking To School. Well, part of the way, it's a bit far for us to do the whole slog on foot. We were going to ride our bikes but then the rain came down. So we compromised: some car, some walking. It's all good.
It is exactly 39 weeks today since Fixit was made redundant. For quite a long while we lived off his redundancy payment and my earnings. Then the big payment ran out and he (finally, reluctantly) went to Centrelink. He was immediately eligible at that point for unemployment benefits and our family also qualified for a health care card, hooray for health care cards and the concessions they bring! So that was a load off my mind, but still there was the nagging problem of what he should do.
We still haven't worked that out exactly, but ... today Fixit got a job! As a driver/mechanic for a medical aids delivery company. He starts next week.
He's feeling so happy right now. So am I.
For ANZAC Day this is so beautiful and tender
