Boom! Reality hits big time next week – and it’s quite okay. Josh got accepted into The University of Queensland today and starts his studies there next week. That is huge news for us, since we haven’t really known up until today if he would get into uni this semester or if he’d have to wait for the next semester start in July. Thankfully he can start now and I think it will be really good for both him and us that he will be able to concentrate 100% on his studies (and on family duties, but of course) and not worry about a job on the side for now, since that is the constellation we have opted for atm. Hopefully it will get him through his studies faster and with an even better outcome than if he worked nearly fulltime on the side.
I know I am excited for him (actually a bit jaloux, so am planning on applying for the July or February 2019 start myself) and I am pretty sure that he is excited to get back into his studies and even start at a completely new uni. Hey, he even got a new bike today so he can use it for his daily commute. He’s so Copenhagen, these days.
So yeah, those are probably the biggest news from our little family these days. Otherwise I can mention that I have finally found out where I am going to give birth to our third baby and I am even in ‘the baby factory system’ up here now. A bit of stress off my shoulders there, really.
Ohh, and the girls’ room is done, or nearly done. We still need to add some new furniture and some lamps and posters and stuff, but they can now use their room and they love it. It’s very obvious that they have missed having a base in the house that is theirs – with no clutter or moving boxes. We have a tiny bit less conflicts and more selfmotivated playtime now. Bliss!
Now we’ve moved our painting gear into the spareroom and will, hopefully, have that done by tomorrow night. I still have this utopian plan that we will be done with the entire internal part of the house come uni start for Josh – as in, on Monday. Yup.
Speaking of, I better get my painting outfit on and paint some doors or some windows or some skirting or some walls or…
We’ve got this!
