The building works at my kids' school - they're getting a new library, new loos and 2 new classrooms, all part of the BER government spending spree.
The demountable classrooms that used to be where all that building work is going on had to be relocated to the oval, so the kids are missing half their sports field till it's all completed. Luckily there's a local park with a nice big oval just up the road so the kids can walk there for sport.
There's a bunch of other work been going on around the school too, one of the buildings had a new roof put on, lots of painting and re-carpeting has been done and part of the playground has been resurfaced.
I mourn the loss of the pavers, they were so much more aesthetically pleasing, but OH&S decreed that the trip hazards must go. It doesn't look so bad really.
Back at home we've had some very persistent visitors to our back deck lately. They hang off the flyscreen at the door and screech demands for food. I gave in.
The cardboard box really needs to be replaced with a proper bird feeding platform one of these days.
On Saturday we headed off to Berrima for a combined groups training day for reenactment combat. I wasn't fighting, unless you count finally conquering the tablet weaving that I'd been avoiding finishing for months because the cardboard tablets I'd improvised while at a friends place were so horrible to use. Adam collected a nice batch of bruises, Tom and Caitlin spent the day climbing trees, Clara basked in the abundance of attention from dog-lovers galore and David gave his iPod a good workout.
I took some pics and vids of the combat, here's a small selection:
