Merry Christmas!

Hi Everyone,

Hope u have had a great Christmas and are preparing for a wild entry into the New Year!

My wild entry into 2008 will consist of a can of coke and dinner, followed by a day of sleep on the 1st.........Yes, you guessed it...........I'm working on new years eve!!!!

Never mind. We had a wonderful Christmas here at Jordan Central in Wagga Wagga. Instead of us getting up at an ungodly hour for kids wanting to see if Santa had been, we were woken up to go and pick them up from the Victoria Hotel instead!

We had our cullinary delight for lunch (Prawns, Smoked Salmon and Mackerel, cheese platters, salamis and smoked meats, pate) and some bubbly to wash it down with. Phew, no dinner of course!

Here is a picture of us all before the unwrapping began.

Speak to you all next year!!

Rhiannan's Year 10 Formal


Rhiannan had her Formal the other night. As you can see she was absolutely beautiful! It went very well and she had a couple of friends over after it finished. After the debacle of the school excursion, she was not keen to go to the after party.

Here she is in her dress, looking great.

She didn't have a partner but her friend Dimity dressed up and went along for the ride for a laugh!! When the car pulled up (Rhiannan has a friend who owns a BMW - he was good enough to take her to the formal), Dimity jumped out and opened the door and helped her out - just like a chaffeur!
Check out the Flickr link on the right to view a photo of Rhiannan with her new car!
By for now - next entry at Christmas
Love to all

Back Agin!!

Well Rhiannan had fun on her excursion - except for a handful of people who got pissed, invited random boys and girls back to their motel rooms and had a party with grog and bongs! Cant believe some kids; they're on the road to ruin at 16. Luckily Rhiannan was in a room with some quiet girls and none of them were involved in it.

Check out this photo. It was taken about Jan 07 when we sold the Corona after 21 years of faithfull service. We took a photo of all of us, including the dogs. I have touched up the photo, changing it to a duotone sepia and retained some of the original colour. It's a great photo!!

Check out more photos on my Flickr account - follow the link on the right!.

Love to all..........

It's been a while............

Hi everyone,

Yep its been a while since I tapped on the keyboard, been fairly busy!

Just waiting for a phone call from Rhiannan who is on the way back from a school excursion to Sydney. Rhiannan has finished school now and is very excited not to have to worry about all that stuff now! She did apply for a Traineeship with a local motel, but didnt get the job because she is too young (they require someone over 18 to serve alcohol etc). A little disappointing but she got a good wrap from the Motel in regards to her personal presentation and resume. Still, plenty of time to try for something else; she still has her Woolworths job.

Kasey turned 18 since I last blogged. She has been out quite a bit since (the novelty will eventually wear off I think). We're very proud of her; she doesn't make a drunken idiot of herself when out, rather she just takes is slowly and enjoys the time with her friends.

Lachlan has finished his TAFE Diploma. They had a big presentation night where they take all their works and present them to interested members of the public. Lachlan has some excellent work in his portfolio.

Rhiannan has brought a car!! She still doesnt have her learners licence (Jan 02 she'll probably try for it - her 16th birthday). Kim found a car on the net and it was such a good buy that we brought it for her and she will be paying us back. I'll have to post some photos of her with it when we get them.

Kim and I are well, doing the usual stuff and getting ready for Christmas. Our tree is up and decorated and looks great!

Well, Rhiannan has just phoned and the bus is coming into Wagga, so better get me shoes on and pick her up. She'll be tired, not much sleep on school trips and she has to be up early tomorrow for work!

I'll add more later and throw on a photo or 2.
