I have decided to move the daycare play area from inside my home to outside in the family/rumpus room/carport. I have been using my spare bedroom for the playroom and it was starting to get to me. If I have family or friends visit I had no where for them to stay. Usually I would have pulled all the toys etc out of the room and put it in the lounge area. Or I would kick my son out of his room to sleep on the lounge, not very comfortable for him. I only have three bedrooms and at times like this I could use four.
I have sort permission from my scheme and they have told me that all I need to do is add a smoke alarm and fire blanket to the room.
The entrance door...
Small table and chairs for littlies. Play dough activity here.
The table with the change area on is actually the pool table and under that is more toys!!
I have had some bad news from my friend in Perth. They lost their beloved daughter back in November 08, leaving behind a little toddler boy. It has been a real struggle for them to cope and I am sad that they live so far away. They are waiting to sell their house so they can move back to South Australia, but nothing is happening on the housing front in Perth at the moment.
My phone rang late last night with news that my friends husband has had a pretty bad heart attack. He is only 48. We are hoping he is okay now as he has had the same thing done as my Dad and is now in hospital recovering. Luckily over the last eight weeks he has been on a health kick with exercising and losing some weight. Sadly his heart is broken by the loss of his daughter and the stress of it all has caught up with him.
The weather here is warming up. It will be 37C on Friday. We haven't had much rain but did have a sprinkling yesterday morning that freshened everything up.
Wishing you all a great day,
