anzac day

Happy birthday to my daughter Rachel. Attended the dawn service in Canberra with Chris and saw Peter Cosgrove up close. Seems funny to see him in a suit and not military uniform.

chasing my tail

haven't blogged for years, consequently forgot all account details such as the name and passwords as well as the email address so it took some tail chasing (pretty hard for a cat with only half a tail lol) but finally here I am. I'm in the capital and it's slightly warmer than home. Spent half a day updating computer programmes and am about to venture out to buy food so I can cook tea for us tonight, which is why I wasted so much time on the computer. I looked up how to make impossible pie and wanted to post to the blog where I got the recipe from soo had to reset my own blog so I could post. At least I might make more of an effort with my own now.

where does the time go?

Wow - almost a year since I posted. Obviously kept really busy this year. Footy season's over so I can go back to taking other photos now. Check out my flickr link for pics of cute baby blue wren. He sat very patiently in the tree outside my laundry window until I fooled around with chips & lenses and finally got a couple of good shots.

busy times

Have just been reading Zann's blog. Great travel blog. Things are getting very hectic here in downtown Portland. I gatecrashed year 10/12 formal celebrations last night and annoyed all and sundry by taking pictures. Will upload some to facebook tomorrow. I was supposed to go to library Christmas tea at the Talisman tonight but sat on loungechair and fell sound asleep. Didn't wake up till Terry got home from work and wondered why I was still at home. Too late then. There is lots to do and I don't feel like doing any of it - feeling very Bah Humbug at the moment. I am waiting for the mood to strike. It's hard to feel Christmassy when the weather is grey. After 3 whole days of stinking heat and hot wind we are back to normal drabness. Only to be expected because it is the 50th celebrations for the Pool tomorrow.

computer assignment

For my school computer assignment I have created a web page. It is fairly basic & there are a couple of things I need to work on but here is the link if anyone wants to look at it.

I'm still here

I haven't posted since August - where did the time go? Despite a sunny start to spring true natives of Portland were not fooled or surprised by the fact that it snowed today. The footy season is over and it was a successful one for the Portland Colts winning the grand final against Oberon. If anyone wants to look at pictures then check out facebook

I will try to post more but it seems as though I am the only one reading this lol.
