Good morning world, how is everyone this fine Sunday morning?
Well it is going to be another stinking hot day here in Newcastle, I already have the air con going so the house doesn't get too hot. At some point I will have to go and pick up Kelli and Daemon from Jessica's place they have been there for the last two nights.
Yesterday I had Summer all day and around is Jessica rings and asks me if I could go and pick up the boys (Daemon & Leo) and watch them for a few hours while Kelli cleaned her house, I ended up watching them till around 6pm, ok Jessica turned up to get them.
So the house was loud and crazy yesterday, Summer didn't have much of a nap she was to interested in playing with the boys, and Daemon wouldn't have a nap as he preferred to play with Leo then nap. I have to say it was nice when everyone left and the house was quiet. Tim went to work around 3.30pm so after all the little ones had left it was just me for the night.
On Friday my parents and sister Sandra didn't go to Friday breakfast because my parents had an appointment with a woman from the Dept. of Housing about them moving into a smaller house. Well I have to say that it went ok but by the end of the appointment mum didn't want to move she had lost interest in moving. Sandra asked if there was any chance of her taking over the house as she is at the top of the waiting list for a Dept. of Housing place but the woman flat out said NO which I think was when mum got turned off her. Also the woman kept telling mum that she should be getting more money for Dawson of Centrelink and mum was saying she knows she is entitled to more money but the way things are is how she has arranged it with Dawson's mum. Really it is no one else’s business mum has come to an arrangement with Dawson's mum and it is no one else's business. So at this stage they have filled in the paperwork to be downsized but when and if it happens no one knows at this stage.
At some point I am expecting the Dept. of Housing to speak to us about this place as there is only me and Tim living here well we are the only ones down as living here, but my niece Kelli and son Daemon are here most of the time at this stage as they have no where else to go.
The Dept. of Housing have brought in this extra room tax to try and get people to downsize but they don't seem to get that if a person has been in the same house for 25-30 years or more then the place they are in is home and the thought of moving doesn't appeal to them. At this stage we are paying full rent so that might be why they haven't said anything to us about moving.
I do understand that there are some people like my parents who are living in a 4 bedroom house with only 3 people but my parents have been in that house since May 1980 and the thought of moving at times doesn't sit right with them, however, mum & dad said it would also depend on where they are offered a place to move to, they don't want to move very far from where they are.
