Finally... =)

Yep it's me again... since you've all asked soooo nicely, I thought I'm gonna do you a favour and write a new blog entry again ;) and this time it will be entirely written in english (as you may have noticed) to give you a bit of a challenge... hope you'll enjoy it...
sooo... I better start telling you about what has happened recently... right, lets start off with last weekend:
On Saturday we had the grandparents, 3 friends of the family and their kids over for a little dinner party. While the "seniors" had their dinner, I was left to entertain the little ones in the lounge. We watched Harry Potter 4 and surprisingly, all went well and there was next to NO naughtiness involved ;)
Sunday was just another of the usual "lazy days", that's probably why I can't really remember what we've done.. all I know is that the rain was pouring down - like somebody had emptied a giant bucket up in the sky!
Then on Monday Lindsey and the kids went away to the mainland, which gave me the opportunity to spend the morning in bed. Later on I walked the dogs, had a bath and ironed some of the kids' clothes, and the rest of the day I spent snuggled up on the sofa watching some crappy programs on TV...
Tuesday wasn't that different from Monday, apart from the fact that everything seemed to go wrong: The computer crashed first thing in the morning, the iron went all funny and I couldn't get it to work again, and finally Pete discovered that some person had crashed into his scooter, dragged it all along the road and then just picked it up and drove away... there were broken pieces all over the floor and the backlight was smashed! On top of it all, the kittens had left a nice surprise in the kitchen for me to find... no it wasn't some kind of excrements, it was a dead bird... Clearing up all the feathers and stuff wasn't exactly my favourite kind of job!!
Later on I managed to get hold of a neighbour and borrow an iron off her, so that I could do at least some of the ironing. But unfortunately, by the time this was done, I didn't have time to go to Newport, as I originally intended.
Anyway, I had to go to college on Wednesday - this was the last time my class was held before the final exams (which will take place next Tuesday) We were given the last advice on how to study our poems and media texts, and that was basically it! Afterwards, I was gonna stay in Newport for a couple of hours, but as it was raining heavily again, I decided to go back home after a little while. And there the next shock awaited me - as I was about to have a shower, somebody knocked at the door - it happened to be an Estate Agent, who came tho show people around the house!!!! The problem was that I hadn't known about this and hadn't had the chance to tidy up or clean the kitchen and bathroom... well, I found it a bit strange that he didn't seem to have bothered to phone up beforehand... anyway, people weren't really interested according to him... then why the hell did he bring them around?!?
Right... after this little shock I prepared a hot chocolate and wrapped myself up in a warm blanket in front of the TV to watch my new Little Britain-DVD... smashing!!! =) And that was basically how I spent the rest of the day - relaxing!
Then this morning I woke up early and gave the house a bit of a clean before the rest of the family got home around lunchtime. I helped Amie and Henry with their homework and then joined them in watching TV... and now I've just taken them up to bed while the parents have gone to work to do their night duty!
Tomorrow will also be the big day on which they find out if they're accepted into South Australian Police... so everybody keep your fingers crossed!!!
ps: I've switched to a bigger font now as this makes it easier for you to read. do you all agree??

net schlecht herr specht... =) ich versuchs gar net erst hier groß auf englisch zu schreiben, ich würde kläglich versagen *g* aber he, komisch find ich das schon, dass du da mit den kindern fernsehn kannst, während die "großen" essen??! ist das denn immer so?Ich mein, beim fernsehen muss doch keiner auf sie aufpassen!

Ina said...

Nein, kein Kommentar auf englisch, ich halte es da mit Britta, will mich ja nicht blamieren. Aber man merkt schon: a bissle was hasch glernt...
Und, weißt Du jetzt schon was, ob die Familie angenommen wird in Australien? Brauchen die dann ein au-pair Mädchen in 4 Jahren (die Antonia) oder in 5 (die Jasmin)? Und in welche Stadt würden sie denn überhaupt gehen??? Und warum???

nadine said...

Am I really the only one who's brave enough to write in english?
what the hell's going on here?

karin said...

aaalso, in australien sind sie leider net angenommen :( das waere eben bei der polizei gewesen (die rekrutieren laufend engl. polizisten) - natuerlich sind jetzt alle total fertig, aber sie ham gesagt dass sies auf jeden fall naechstes jahr nochmal probieren! das waer adelaide gewesen, im sueden...

britta: naja, das war so weil sie eben eine kleine "feier" gemacht haben und net immer aufstehen wollten, also war ich so der "supervisor" fuer streitigkeiten etc =) ausserdem hats net so viel gemacht, weil harry potter eh lustig war...

aja und ina, das mit den au-pairs kannst du sie dann ja persoenlich fragen, sie kommen naemlich wahrscheinlich im sommer wieder fuer 1 woche nach oesterreich... hat ihnen anscheinend gefallen im winter!!

Ina said...

Hi Kärin, sehr interessant, werde ich meine Mädels Deiner Familie dann vorstellen. Wäre ja witzig, aber ist ja doch noch in relativ weiter Zukunft.
Wie kann man nur so gut englisch können? Liest Du auch viel auf Englisch? Wenn ja, was gibt es da Tolles, Interessantes, Spannendes?
Ist das eigentlich so schwer, in Australien einen Job bzw ein Visum zu bekommen?

Ina said...

Why did you never visit Britta in Switzerland???
