Idyllic studying


GJ has a lot on his plate at the moment. He is 4 subjects off finishing his Degree in Business Management at Queensland University of Technology (QUT); he is studying Mandarin at University of Queensland 2 nights a week and we have a tutor for 1 hour on Saturdays in Mandarin; as well as completing an assignment for the company training/management conference in Singapore. He also works long hours as the Queensland state manager.
We, as the other members of the family, only cut him a little slack, he still has to participate fully in family life. It sounds cruel and selfish, but the kids grow up so quickly and I don't want him to miss a second. Luckily, most of the time he agrees with me. GJ is a wonderful Father, fully involved in all aspects of parenting. He was holed up in the office last weekend while the kids had a rest and I kicked him out so I could get on my computer and look where he ended up.

If you have to study, what a wonderful spot to do it in!!
