well, its been a while. what can I tell you?
Ive decided to give up smoking.. finally. Im using patches and Im currently cutting down the cigs, Im on 18/day.
tomorrow is down to 15.
weather.. weather sucks, really. summer never did rear its head, with only a handful of days over 25c.. I really like summer weather so thats a shame
Ive got big plans for travel this year, Im heading to Brisbane in 2 weeks,
Ill head to Townsville a couple of times, Perth once, Melbourne a few times, and we hope to do the great ocean road.
we were waiting for a spell of warm weather ;)
Brisbane is officially for Bill's stepmother's wedding, we will also catch Donna and Col, and of course Gina, Ty, Lexi and Zavian.
Perth will see me catching up with my neice and nephew.
one of the Townsvile visits will be to see the wedding of 2 of my lesbian friends. they are having a ceremony and singing a bunch of legal documents that give them the same legal bonds as any straight married couple.
most of my family and old friends are in Melbourne, its good to see them but it can be a trial getting around to everyone.
I wish more of them would come to mee!
works been good, Im enjoying being casual, and Im getting enough work.
so far the only weekend work I get is saturdays, maybe when Im home Ill put myself down for every saturday.
I love having extra days off, but I dont DO anything much with them.
thats a bit of a lie, last sunday we went to the shops, to the Fird museum, which was interesting, and to a market of vintage items.
I picked up some lovely cut glass and crystal items.
Cats are still awesome. Gypsy lends an air of mischeviousness to the house, shes still boinging around being silly.
shame she doesnt get along with the black cat, tiny.
Gypsy and big cat sneak kisses at times, if biggus and tiny werent so close, and tiny wasnt so close to me, I would send her up to Harley.
fluffy cat and tiny get along pretty well.
I think you did the right thing, tho Genes, she is crazy and would be jumping all over your 2 kids.
nursing wise, there is a real crackdown on continued learning, so there is a lot of workshops now available. we require 20 hours learning/year, called 20 CPD points.
I will be able to access plenty of online learning, and theres a few worshops Id love to go to, but too bad they are in the city, a good hour . and they cost $140 each.
Ive got Forrest Gump on the TV at the moment. its a sweet movie, tho its only on because there's nothing else, I am getting sucked back into it again.
what else? Im still steadily losing weight. Im back into a size 12 pant.. which is an American 10. I havemt worn anything smaller in some years, so we will see.
I have gotten back into my levi 501s that Bill brought me back from the US, which I didnt think I was going to be able to wear again, ever.
theyre barely worn- I got too fat for them quickly.
heres hoping I get to wear them a lot!
too bad I now have all these nice clothes that are now too big... haha
and with that, Im a goner!! see yas!
