Happy New Year, everyone! I hope that you all had a wonderful Christmas
First of all, I just want to reassure you that we have not been affected by the floods that have devastated Queensland. We are a bit soggy in Kooralbyn, and frequently play “dodge the massive pothole on the highway”, but are otherwise doing fine. It’s actually nice to see the once dry billabongs fill up.
Shyanne has just celebrated her 11th birthday, we took her and two of her friends, Emma & Ashleigh, up to Brisbane for the day. As it has been dodgy weather, we figured that hanging out in Southbank were they have a beach-pool and the Cultural Centre (museums, art gallery, science centre). The girls had a great time, plus, as a bonus treat, Hugh took us all up on the Wheel of Brisbane: http://www.visitsouthbank.com.au/attractions/wheel_of_brisbane All in all, the girls had a busy day, running around.
Hugh has been off work for the past week and a half, and is now only just starting on some of the home projects I’ve been nagging him about. He goes back to work next Thursday, I don’t think I’ll be getting my new bathroom done this time around! We’ve been in this villa for almost three years and he’s just finally fixed the back sliding door. It actually slides now. (please ignore the big, gaping hole under the stairs…) I’m excited for this weekend cause he’ll be replacing the screens on the door and windows!!!
One of these days, our home won’t be so ghetto looking, lol
I’ve been doing pretty good. I love my new job and I couldn’t wish for a better boss. He cracks me up constantly, telling what other discounts he can get with his senior card he “just qualified” for. It’s such a relief not to be working for the lab anymore, it’s gone so downhill. I do miss my co-workers, they were a good group.
Oh yeah, we’ve heard a new rumor about the resort. A developer has bought it, with plans for a “super community”. Apparently, things are going to start up in February, so, I’ll believe it when I see it.
That’s all for now, my show’s on: http://ten.com.au/bondi-vet.htm
