4 sleeps to go

Time is rushing now and I still have a too large list of things to do before we leave on our holiday. After finally sorting flight from Vietnam to Cambodia and back the travel company has told us of additional fees by the bank (???). I can't even be bothered to argue with them at this stage but at least we don't have to deal with that until we get there.
Unfortunately I will have to nag the airline we are flying with to get to Vietnam as I booked with one passport number (long story) and went to change it to my new passport but can't do this easily. Nightmares followed about watching my family fly off without me, hopefully this will be sorted today or things may get ugly.
We are having our family Christmas on Wednesday night as we will be wandering around Angkor Wat (tomb raider territory) on the actual day - haven't quite worked out how Santa will find us yet...

Last weekend Geoff took Henry and Meaghan across to visit his mum on the coast (yay, much needed quiet time). While they were there they went fishing. Henry loved it. To top it off he caught two fish - too small to keep but great to keep the interest up. Meaghan was not so keen but still was game enough to put bait on hooks and sit still for quite a while.
A couple of days later we were in the news agency and Henry was staring intently at a magazine (very near the adult magazines). I hurried over to make sure it was nothing inappropriate and sure enough it was a fishing magazine - he has his eye on a big fish now.

School visits

Henry and his friends are readying themselves for Kindy next year by a couple of visits to Curtin School. They were met by there yr4 buddies who showed them around the school, finishing with a play outside. I am not sure Henry is quite ready to think about it yet - he is a take one day at a time boy but he will enjoy school I think (hope!!).
Tomorrow they get to go to the canteen to spend 10c all by themselves as well as having a lesson with a kindy teacher. Should be fun - Henry is keen to wear his uniform "just like Meaghan's".
