It was the book week parade for the primary school boys today. Soren went as Charlie Bucket from Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, and Jericho went as Poseidon, god of the sea (at least if Poseidon wears Hawaiian shirts). They looked so cute, and both of them had a good day.

Someone went into Troy’s car last night and riffled through everything and stole all the gold coins! They didn’t exactly break in, since the car was not locked, but it’s still kind of creepy. We found out when we got in the car at lunch time and the things from the glovebox and centre console were lying on the front seats, and then we saw all the gold coins (of which there weren’t even that many!) were gone. They left the silver coins though, so obviously they spit on our spare change.

Troy and I went down the street today to fix up our loan and offset account. It’s all in order now, which means Troy can begin to look for his new car. I would say that that will be fun for him, except that I think the real fun for him is thinking about cars and reading about cars and trying to decide on the perfect car, so once he actually goes and BUYS something then his hobby loses a lot of its charm.

Mum and Dad are coming to stay tonight. Really they are just using us as a hotel, so they can go to an optometrist appointment tomorrow, but at least it’s a visit. Apart from that, I don’t know that we have any great plans for the weekend – perhaps shopping for appliances?
