Week in the Life - Day 6 - 28th April, 2012

The weekend was going to be rainy so reading the paper in bed with a cup of coffee was just what I needed on Saturday morning.  That being said, I had to get out of bed and fetch the camera to go outside to take a photo of Sienna collecting the paper in the rain.  I get both Saturday and Sunday newspapers delivered which is a luxury not to have to drive out and buy the paper first thing in the morning.

The kids watched some tv and played in their rooms with James getting into the Lego and Sienna doing some craft work.

In the afternoon we had to go and vote for our local Council Elections and for the Lord Mayor of Brisbane so we ventured out in the rain to do that.  The local elections have been very quiet compared with the recent State Election, so much so, I didn't even know the date it was being held.  I figured I didn't have to pay too much attention because it would be on the front page of the local newspaper however it didn't even get mentioned on the cover.  There was an article inside the paper, luckily I remembered it was at the end of the month.  Graham Quirk has been re-elected for 4 years.  After Campbell Newman (our new Premier of Queensland) resigned from the Lord Mayor's job a while back Graham Quirk was put in place to do the job however he has been re-elected by the people to do the job for the next 4 years on his own merit.

We ventured out to the School Disco which was from 5.00-6.30 pm for Preps to Grade 3 and then on the way out we had a sausage in bread for dinner.  It was straight home to warm pj's and bed after that as our feet and shoes were soaked because of the rain.  Here's our photos for Day 6 with only 1 more to go.
