New Car is Here!....


picked up the Impreza the other day. Boy! it's great to drive! It's similar to the Outback in some ways but handles much better. Kim loves driving it, and we're looking forward to lower fuel and running costs as opposed to the larger engine of the Outback and the 2nd car (the Astra) that Lachlan brought off us.

We're off to QLD for Mums 80th on the 27th - can't wait - it'll be so good to catch up with the family and have some time to ourselves also. We're arriving about 0130 on Thurs arvo - 2 nights in Brissy - Sat night at Beaudesert and Sun/Mon nights at Surfers Paradise. Should be a great little break away!

Hey! Follow this link - and check out Lachlans journalistic skills. He is now listed as a columnist for this website! It's not a paying job - yet - but Lachlan enjoys posting stuff on there as it gives him some experience with writing and is quickly making a name for himself with the site managers.

Big Week for all ...............

Gidday Family and Friends

Huge week for the Jordan de Wagga Wagga Sept!

Rhiannan's traineeship has started full on. At the end of the traineeship she will have a Cert III Hospitality (Operations) which is something very handy to have; people have to eat! It's really going well for her. The traineeship is being oversighted by Australian Aprenticeships which is a subsidary of Mission Australia. They check up every so often to ensure that the employer is looking after Rhiannan as well as sending along a training person once every so often to take her through some of the finer points of the traineeship. I think this person takes her through theory components of the Certificate. She works a 38 hour week and is still working at Woolies on her days off although I dont know how much longer she'll handle that.

Lachlan has taken on extra responsibilities at Woolies in Gurwood St. He is also working the back dock now, unloading semi trlrs as they come in with stock, signing for the delivery and ensuring that what was ordered was actually delivered. He will be taught to drive a forklift whilst there also (always a handy licence to have!). For the last 2 days he has started at 0430 in the morning and finished at midday. He is absolutely knackered at this moment and has fallen asleep on the lounge in rumpus room! Lachlan is buying the Astra off us. He always wanted it, it's an excellent car and he has been driving it for the last year or so and he feels very comfortable driving it.

Kasey is a lot better now. The antibiotics they had her on really knocked the tonsilitis for six and she is well over the glandular fever that came with it. She was pretty crook for a few weeks, God bless her, but she is well and truly on the way to recovery. GUESS WHAT? Kasey got her Provisional Licence today!!! Yahoo!!! She is so excited. She picked them up about 1000 this morning (RTA in Wagga is assessing on a Sunday to catch up with a backlog). She has driven to work by herself this arvo. It will be a great boost for her self confidence. 2 down and 1 to go!

Kim has been going to a Chiropractor for her back. She leave the place feeling a little sore, but within a cuppla days can really notice more movement than she has had for years. This bloke works on pressure points, not like the older style who'd probably pull off your head and break a cuppla ribs whilst manipulating things back into place.

And me? My hair is growing back all of a sudden and is doing so good that I have an appointment at a salon to get dreadlocks! (heh heh heh.........................)
I hope you're all happy and healthy.
Love to all
