Last Sunday my husband and daughter began their trip to Melbourne to a briefing about her upcoming overseas trip. They had a bit of time left over so went to the Fawkner Memorial Park. Melbourne is 5 1/2 hours from here. There were a class of other kids attending, some of the other parents got up early for a 4 1/2 hour drive, another family flew down.
I have family members in the Old Pioneers Section which is pretty special. Since we live further from Melbourne, it was a nice opportunity to show our daughter. I will have some more photos of the cemetary to show tonight (for some reason I thought Camera Critters was on Wednesday). The first photo has a lyrebird's tailfeathers featured. I am not sure which section these photos were from.
I think I did pretty well with managing on my own for the days my husband was away. He had just come home from another trip to Canberra with our son. My windcheater that got wet wood dust on it didn't fare too well, after washing it is still stained.
Our heater fan has been fine after my husband fixed it though he left one part off the heater, I hope he puts it back on soon. Today I found out that I have much more meat in the freezer than I knew I had, so I will start off the fortnight with two extra lots of meat. I find it hard sometimes to get enough, so if there is not a lot in my usual shop it won't matter this time.
The present I got from The Hub Asian foodstore in Belconnen was Nestea. My daughter made up a strong batch and put it in the fridge I believe. I wasn't that keen to taste it, but they gave me some cold Nestea yesterday afternoon and it was very nice. I found a recipe site for it too.
We got our tax done this week. We have been struggling with so many things. I woke up yesterday feeling postive about getting on top of things, at least for a little while lol. We get a refund, mostly to reimburse us for our internet costs as part of the education refund.
I like how these photos match my current template. I apologise if there are any Christians who are offended by my fairies. They could be ballerinas. I can't quite work out how offensive it is given how much sleep I had last night. Just know I used to go "psycho" at least in my mind when my Mum used to take my daughter to the fairy shop. A couple of children later and I am dealing with Facebook. Sigh.
