blue_leaf was asking for pictures... well, for a start, here's the bruise on my elbow (from the fall when the Year 9 girl ran into me in the gym)!

Pictures of the rest of me? Well... sometime...

Had a really busy day. We're looking at Jesus Camp (I talked about that last week, I think). Most of the girls are pretty horrified at what is going on there and how young the children are. And they're amazed at the open hostility towards Muslims, calling them the enemy and describing them as people who train children to be suicide bombers from an early age. I have a Muslim in my class who was amazed and pretty affronted. The rest of the girls hastened to reassure her that they didn't feel anything like that. I collected my tiles for the new bathroom. I got stone kind of looking tiles, in a creamy-tan colour for the walls of the shower and a darker greyish tone for the floor. It's awfully exciting to be doing this, changing from the white plastic shower to tiles. I can't wait.

Steve still away. He sat beside Temuera Morrison today for a meal!! None of us will ever forget Once Were Warriors. Or Dr Ropata LOL!

-but we think we'll just tile the bathrooms and use wood everywhere else - softer and warmer on the feet.
My parents had a totally floor-tiled apartment one holiday in Aussie, and we visited them there. A LOT of stuff broke when it hit the floor!!! Mum's glasses off the bathroom cabinet, Dad's glass that just slipped from his fingers as he dozed off, a jar in the kitchen...

That's exactly what we thought. Colin dropped a glass in the tiled kitchen/living room of the apartment we were staying in last time... So we think wood most places, and wood with lino on top that looks like tiles in the kitchen. Then real tiles in the bathrooms but use plastic 'glasses' in there! (And maybe put tiny rails round an area for putting your spectacles!)We're not sure about the balcony - at the moment it's painted concrete - I'd quite like tiles but maybe outdoor decking would be more practical!
