New school year.

We moved house almost a year ago. Hard to believe. I also have been working for the Dept Agriculture for over a year now too. Where does the time go? Eileen is settled into her primary school too. Two jobs we both enjoy, good stuff. The long range forecast is good for the end of middle of September. I have some farms to inspect in the high Sperrins - those hills are calling. I was at a meeting in Elijah's primary school last week for P7 parents on transferring to secondary school. We cannot believe our wee son will soon be leaving primary. Here he'll be going to Lurgan Junior High so we have not worries about transfer tests. They have a selective transfer again going into 3rd year. The kids are both very happy in school here. We were just looking out some old photos, pre-digital days, to scan into the Mac. You sometimes wonder if life existed before kids.
Off sick today. We all are in fact, Elijah, Hannah and myself. Thankfully Eileen was not at work over the last two days and could nurse us all. We thought Han had taken food poisoning after a Mc'D's last weekend, but it turned out to be a winter vomiting virus. I cleaned up the vomit of chips beside her bed and must have infected myself. Two days incubation later I was kneeling beside the loo in the en-suite retching repeatadly, wiping down, then crawling back into bed. A few hours later Eljah joined in the fun and Eileen had to mop the decks. Two days later we are all just about recovered. New year has been good. We invested in a new patio at the back, the dog does not need bathed after every pee. Work has been going well for both of us. Eileen loves her new school and I'm enjoying seeing much of Co Tyrone and visting the farms.
