Family Meeting



Winter has well and truly arrived in Busselton, it was so cold today I went home and put another two layers of clothes on! The rain is constant and heavy too.

The gas crisis is not helping. The explosion on Veranus Island a couple of weeks ago has cut WA's gas supply by a third and households and industry are both having to drastically cut gas use in order to stop the economy being crippled: so many WA industries are gas dependent.


There was a Holt Press family meeting tonight to raise some issues and clear the air. It went pretty well, with The Hair being the "default agenda". It was good to talk about a range of things and try and make the Holt Press House a happier and more cooperative place to live.


At the end we prayed for The Hair and his hopes of getting a driver's license. He has an eye condition called Nystagmis which causes his eyes to involuntarily wobble or vibrate and his eyesight is not as good as it could be as a result. We all hope, and tonight prayed, that his vision will improve and that he will be able to get a license.


One more story at The Hair's expense, a conversation from this afternoon related to me by Favourite Daughter.


TH: Hey, do you want this Star Wars picture?


FD: Yeah, but I've got nowhere to put it....unless I take down this Winnie the Pooh picture.


Pause


FD: Do you want the Winnie the Pooh picture?


TH: YEAH!! I love Winnie the Pooh!
When we were kids Mum read us the Adventures of Christopher
Robin and Winnie the Pooh.
Which reminds me of one of my favourite jokes.
What do Winnie the Pooh and Jack the Ripper have in common?
The same middle name.

I missed the whole FB renaming thing, but I would have suggested Spike (as in the spikey things he was wearing around his wrists when I met you all).

Love the blender antics!
