It's the winter school holidays - woohoo!
This is different from remote learning which was a holiday from school but not a holiday from schoolwork.
School holidays mean way less fights at home.
Actually, the same number of fights, but not fights about doing schoolwork, just more fights about too much screen time and completing household tasks without the distraction of more screen time.
We'll be heading off on holiday this time around, which will be a holiday from school and a holiday from home and will hopefully be distracting enough to reduce the attraction of too much screen time.
Everyone I know is taking their postponed winter 2020 holiday in winter 2021 - state borders being the hottest topic of conversation in the past week.
Even my soon to be 80-year-old mum had to double her chemotherapy treatment last week so she could take time off this week to fly high up over New South Wales and down into Queensland with my sister to see one of my brothers up there.
We squeezed in the first half of mum's vaccine between cancer treatments and it wasn't even a blip on her radar.
Considering that the over production of immune system white blood cells in her bone marrow is the culprit trying to kill her, thinking through the implications of a vaccination which activates the immune system against a virus makes my head hurt, and is best left to the professionals.
My healthcare professional advised me not to get the AstraZeneca version of the vaccine, even though I was standing in front of his nurse with my jacket off and my sleeve rolled up.
He told me I was too young, at nearly 52, even though at the time over 50's qualified.
I blame face masks for our communication breakdown because I couldn't tell if he was joking or not.
When I understood his advice I took it, and within a week I was shocked when a 52-year-old woman died following the same jab.
Within a month 52-year-olds became officially too young to receive the AstraZeneca.
A friend explained that I probably wouldn't have died anyway, just like I probably wouldn't have won Tattslotto.
The thing is, I don't play Tattslotto but I was going to get that injection.
