Sunday drive....

Today I went for another drive in the car, out to a little village called Murringo....and funnily enough, after researching our family history a few years turns out that a branch of my DH's family settled in Murringo back in the 1800's....I just find that so amazing!...the fact that we aren't originally from this area, have only lived here for 15 years...and to find that a few branches of DH's family settled out in the country area that we are now living in....I think that's just mind boggling!

Anyways....I took my camera again today, and took some pics of some lovely old houses, an old inn....and another quaint little stone church.....but I am soooooo annoyed!!!...and I don't know how I did it....but I didn't have a memory card in the camera!!! GGGRRRRRRRRR. I didn't have my glasses with me I was happily snapping away...pic after pic after pic....and unable to see when I turned the camera on...that it was telling me that there was no card!!! Oh looks like I will have to take another little trip out to Murringo some time soon! LOL....and this time I'll make sure I have some extra time to visit the cemetary there....because some of DH's relatives are buried I'll also make sure the camera has it's card!!!

Here is the LO that I mentioned in my previous's for my BOM that I am following with Jane over at Scrapbook n Bits. The pic is from 2003 when we went for a holiday to was so much fun to get dressed up in all the old clothes and get our photo taken. I think both Dave & especially Joel, really look the part!

Busy, busy, busy.....

I am finally near the end of my 8 or so weeks of working full time...and I've survived all those big medical scarey words! lol....just one week to go and then I get to have my week, I can't wait! I'm hoping then that things will get back to normal, where I work 1 week, then have 1 week off......BUT, the boss asked the other day for me to give her any dates over the next 2 months that I can't work...I think that means that she may be needing me to work some extra days!....oh well, the extra money sure will come in handy!

Today I finally got to do some scrapping! My second layout in about 6 weeks....that is just so unusual for me. I'm normally at least 1, but usually 2 or 3 LO's per week. Today I did a LO for my BOM - following Jane's journey over at Scrapbook n Bits. I haven't gotten a photo of it yet, so I'm unable to post it as yet...but I will add it as soon as I get a pic tomorrow. For now I'll leave you with my other LO that I mentioned...for the "scrap your stash" challenge over at Scrapbook n Bits.....

My scallywag of a best friend....OSCAR!

This afternoon we went for a drive out near Wyangala Dam and then through Frogmore & on to Boorowa. We spotted this gorgeous little old church at Hovells we just had to stop and have a little looksy & take a few pics.....

On closer inspection (peering through the windows) we discovered that the intererior of the church is being renovated.....into a house! It looked absolutely gorgeous inside! It had a beautiful timber staircase going up to a second level that has been made up in the steep roof will be just stunning once it is all finished. It seems to be becoming a very popular thing in areas out here, where people are renovating old disused churches into homes....just amazing!

And the reason we went for a get some more km's up on our NEW CAR! so that it can have it's first 1,000km service, before Dave & Joel go away in the first week of the school holidays.

Yep, we bought ourselves a band spanking new Toyota Rav4.....first brand new car that we've ever had. It is so beautiful to drive...I just love it!

Also adding a few pics from Joel's Amcross a few weeks ago. It was his first ever race and boy was it nerve wrecking! My heart was either in my stomach or up in my throat for the whole day! He is absolutely loving his motocross atm....and we are loving spending the time taking him to the different events, and making it a days outing.

A few pics of him really churning that dirt....

Believe it or not, but the course for this event was on all natural wasn't a purpose built track like a Motocross track is. It was just natural farming land where they pegged out the track & slashed the grass so that it wasn't long....but by the end of the day it was just all dirt, even with it's own burms where the corners were quite it was a man made track. That just really amazed me.
Anyways...that's about all that's been happening in my neck of the woods.
Hope everyone is having a fab weekend....until next time....Toodlepip!

Helicobacterpylori, Adenomatous, pedunculated polyp, recto sigmoid....

Hypercholesterolemia, symbicort, caecum....what's all this you say?

LOL.... well that's exactly what I said! This is what my past week has consisted of....all these medical words that I not only have had to type, but also have had to figure out if that's exactly what the Dr was saying into his dictaphone, and then having to look it up in a medical dictionary, hoping that it's spelt as it sounds, after replaying it over and over a dozen might as well have been in Japanese if you ask me...LOL.

It has certainly been an interesting week....but also pretty scarey. As of next week I will on my own doing this job that I have been training for. Hopefully it will all go well....I just hope I remember everything!

No time for scrapping at all over the past couple of weeks....pretty sad eh!

Anyways....just a quick post tonight. I think it's time to hit the hay....hope everyone has a great long weekend! 'Til next time....Toodlepip!
