I am so excited...I have my first follower! I never thought I would get such a warm fuzzy feeling over it but here it is. Thanks for that Kim and I hope I can keep you interested.
I also got 2 comments so I'm going to reply to them how. Firstly to Kim, I am not kissing your butt because you are my first follower, but you are absolutely right. Some people are university people and some people are not. Mr 16 is not. And there's nothing wrong with that. I'm not sure what it's like over there but here in Australia the competition seems to be getting fiercer everyday. People are losing their jobs all over the place and I guess I want my kids to have as much education as possible so they have a leg up in the employment arena. But if Mr 16 did go to university he would probably drop out anyway because he would hate it so much and that would be a bigger waste of money than what I've already spent on his private schooling (I can hear my wallet groaning from here). I wrote the blog about him during exam time when we were both stressed out but I'm calmed down now and I'm sure he'll work it out. At least he'll never be homeless because he'll always have me :)
And in answer to Sobrina's question - schnitzel is like this hard pressed chicken (or beef) that has been crumbed. It doesn't sound appetising does it? I don't eat it but the kids love it. I kind of like when they have different tastes to mine. That's the best thing about having kids...watching their different personalities develop. I call my kids north, south, east and west because they're all totally different and they're all going in opposite directions. Never a dull moment.
