Not sure if you are still looking for ideas but I use a website http://www.spellingcity.com
for my 9 year old. You can enter your own list of words or use theirs, and there are all sorts of variations of straight out spelling, like choose the correct word to fit the sentence etc. My son enjoys it because it is all online game style. You can…[Read more]
My DH & I had the same problem. He has none of the main causes of snoring, eg drinking, smoking, being overweight, and he went to a sleep specialist and does not have sleep apnoea. He just snores.
The specilaist said the only remedy would be surgery, or the last resort was to try a mouthguard type thing.
The natural remedies, nasal sprays…[Read more]

fatcontroller, we had a long wait and some chasing to do to get our meter installed by their electrician too.
BUT, we just got our electricity bill for 6 months – $50. So I’m happy! That included most of winter when we were still running an air con for heating, and we were boosting our hot water system too.
Just to let anyone know who might be interested in how this turned out for us…
We got a Nectre bakers Oven. Love it love it love it!
We put the fire in our living area which is big and open planned with a raked ceiling- so big volume to heat. Our house is modern, brick veneer and well insulated, but we have heaps of single glazed aluminiun…[Read more]
Sonya, thanks so much for posting about this book. :hug:I am absolutely loving it! I am a similar age to the author and we have been going through some similar thought processes lately. In fact I am just about to stop working.
So far the book has really resonated with me, and I love the ideas in there.:tup::tup:
Actually, we’ve had a change of plans for now…no travelling yet 🙁
maybe when DH gets long service leave.
On the upside our change of plans includes me quitting work 😀 and homeschooling the kids 😀
So, thanks anyway….:hug:
Hi Poodlecross :wave:
Welcome to ALS.
If you try buying second hand you might find it grows on you. I know it has for me, especially in regard to homewares and furniture. I used to like buying new stuff, but since I started buying preloved stuff I find that new is no longer appealing to me as it seems it has no character, especially furniture. Now…[Read more]
Building your Own Home by George Wilkie is a great book for owner builders.
Also the government website
has heaps of info- look at the Technical Manual section- it has alot of info about sustainable building.
Looks great Greth! well done :tup:
I can’t help you with the chicken stuff, but welcome to ALS :wave:

Kasalia your garden is really lovely! Well done! :clap: It all looks so lush and green and thriving!

Hope all the paperwork and details go through smoothly for you :hug:
Thanks for the CD Doc, it arrived today.
I had a listen to the sounds and music and also the “Relax” one. They are very well done and I’m sure I will use them alot!
I did try the Relax one today, but with two young companions joining in(3 years & 4.5 years old), plus a curious Golden Retreiver who came over sniffing to see what was happening, I…[Read more]
Thanks for the replies and encouragement. 😀
It is a window of opportunity that we won’t get again easily.
Greth that would be great if your friends would like to add some comments here. Some practical advice would be really helpful.
Thanks for the offer Penny, I might take you up on that if we get that far! Got to sell our house first….
Thanks for this thread Kathy. Its gotten me a bit teary. Actually I think I was already a bit teary and reading through this thread just let it out.
Its been a stressful few weeks for me and a few things are happening that I’m finding really hard. Thanks for the reminder to put it in perspective and remember the good as well as the…[Read more]
Hi Doc :wave:
have pm’d you!
edited to fix dodgy typing
Thanks for the extra info LindyChook. Interesting that you had a really different experience loris.
I think I would like the freedom to choose our own way, but I like the idea of having materials provided. I think maybe I like the idea of distance education because I’m a bit worried about doing a good enough job of it! From what I’ve read thats…[Read more]
Thanks for the link Greth, and some good ideas for social activities I hadn’t considered for DS8.
I’m not sure when the national curriculum is coming into effect kerrieb. I think the states are still squabbling over the details!
