Back on Blogger!!

Sorry folks but it has been just a 'little while' since I have posted anything on my blog!   For those of you who have left messagess about the family history I will endeavour to reply to you as soon as I can.   If only I can find a way of uploading a document to this site then I could put a lot of family history on in one go.

OK.   Well........since the last blog.........................

Lachlan has landed himself a job with an Electrical Wholesale Warehouse - Lawrence and Hanson.  He really likes it there.  He works Mon-Fri from 7am to 3.30pm - 4 hours overtime every second Saturday.   It's such a far cry from the nightshifts he was doin at Woolworths which, by the way, he doesn't miss one little bit!!   Lachlan has a woman in his life now.  Her name is Miranda and she is a lovely girl!   She fits in so well with all of us crazy Jordans!!

Kasey is still at Woolworths.  They were a little bit scabby with hours for her but have picked up their game and are giving her extra hours when short staffed or someone calls in sick; it pays to tell the manager that you are available if needed!!
Rhiannan has a job at Bills Cafe at Warners Bay.   It's a casual job but she works full time hours.   It's not a bad job but the owners need to look at the way they run it and not try and skimp on too much stuff.  She has made some good friends there and I think that is the main thing for now.

Kim n I have been busy around the house.   We ripped up a lot of old shrubs that were worse for wear, ripped up the white scoria rock that dominated the 'yards' and laid some turf.   That happened about 2 months ago and it looks fantastic!   We will be getting stuck back into the painting soon and hopefully by the time I go on leave in July it will be well and truly on the way to completion.   We have had some tradies out to check out our ensuite and bathroom because we want to rid ourselves of the champagne pink and salmon pink vanity units and also re-tile the floors.   A much nicer shower screen is also on the agenda.  Still awaiting some quotes for those jobs.
Rhiannan has brought herself a new car.   It's a Kia Cerato and she got such an excellent deal for it - the dealer had accidentally advertized it for $2000 less in the paper!!   He was not overly excited when we went in to buy it but he did stick to the advertised price which was very decent of him.   It is 2nd hand but has only done 4000 kms so it is virtually brand new; still has 5 year warranty on it!!

Kim n I hit The Entrance last weekend.   A workmate of mine plays in a band - 'Toad in the Hole' and was supporting Mental as Anything at The Entrance Leagues Club.   We had a ball - it's a bugger we cant see Husky and the boys playing at the Mingara Club on the 21st......I gotta bloody work!

Tomorrow I am taking my 12 string in for some long overdue TLC.  It needs re-fretting, a new nut, the fingerboard needs sanding and cleaning and some of the string winders are a little loose.   After 32 years it is probably long overdue for a service.   Might get an acoustic pick-up on it also!

The Kids [ kids....haha....not anymore! ]  are on their way to Canberra next weekend for a friends 21st and Kasey will then travel on to Wagga for another 21st.   Pray for a safe journey.

Anyway I will leave it there for now.   Hope everyone is well and healthy.

Lurv 2 all,

Jordy
