Hi my friends,

Well only a week today and I will be on that plane! EEEK - dont like flying - trying not to think about that too much!  Im really looking forward to the trip now that we are booked into the hotel. It will be great!  The hotel is only 3 start but hey!! much better than that hostel!

The rat man came today - he said it definately was/is rats.  He thinks they have gone but he has baited in the garage just incase. He said they havent nested so thats a relief.  We have to watch Oscar carefully - if he got hold of a poisoned dead rat it could kill him - we have to watch him and if he acts strange in any way we rush him to the vets with the note about the anitdote - scary stuff - John and I are going check the garden every morning and our garden is not small!  The guy said it is highly unlikely that they will die in the garden - he reckons they will go back to their nest but we have to be vigilant with Oscar.

My work placement started very well today at the school.  I'm working with an artist from an organisation called Creative Partnerships and they provide funding to schools so that artists can work with the children.  It sounds so exciting!!  We planned the lessons today and they start next week but, of course, I wont be there next week so I'll miss the first week.  Im so excited about working with the children!

Busy week this week - its going to go fast.

Do I take my DS with me to NY? Hmmm

Wonder if Stuart has got his Wii?

And, bet Sara is stuck on that game!!!

Take care,

Love Laine xxx

You`ll be fine on the plane laine, I think the build up of nerves is worse than the actual flight.  Just think, you`re going to NEW YORK! :o)  Rats do take the bait back to their nests to die but as you say you must be careful where Oscar is concerned.

Love Sandra xxxx
