end of the decade

Well fellow bloggers, here's to another year, after spending a fairly inocuous xmas day at work, which acually was a bit messy, but we got through it! Let me explain, I work as an RN in a small regional hospital in the ICU with some really great people who are the salt of the earth. So here's to all the health care workers out there- hope the celebrations on new years eve is a quiet one! I've been reading of the antics of the population of the great usa in the ER departments- thank god i live in a peacefull small area. Really most of the people we see are elderly who have cardiac issues, they are on the whole nice normal people and are really thankfull for the care they are given. So I will be celebrating with a couple of friends watching fireworks by the river and hope I dont get called in to work! Buon anno!

holiday fun

so just been reading some other blogs, there seems to be the pefect Bree from desperate housewives who can bake the perfect cake, every day...? or sew amazing garments or decorate better than your average designer mag,. or those who are more or less than normal beings thank you. So today im bored out of my brain, my social life consists of taking my kids to their various outings with their own friends, and their are more tourists around than the whole population so an outing soon becomes a fight for A carpark B service C keeping your head on. I should think myself so lucky to live in a major tourist destination but really there must be a thousand other places more interesting, the beach is good, but what to do if its raining? Yesterday an outing to the cinema was like a stampede out of lion king, forget the popcorn just get a seat! Next year im going away this is insane, ok i gotta go im late for my daughters lift to her friends place...

first day of december

The first day of december and now only 24 days until christmas! For the majority of us this will be a joyful time with family and friends celebrating the end of another year. I'm not religious but thank the christians for this holiday so we can all just relax hah! Some of you will be a little stressed at the prospect of having an entire family gathering to cater for but really would you have it any other way? For us in the southern hemisphere its hot and humid, so we tend to celebrate outdoors, so its a bit easier to spread out. Generally the bbq is put to good use and the whole affair is a casual one. I am thinking of doing a lunch out this year as we have family members too far away to make it together unfortunately, which is a shame. Its time to wrap the presents to put under the tree, which my children decorated wonderfully, lights and all its really pretty. I also have a number of projects to complete before then so it will head down for a while, So ho ho ho 24 days to go!
