Journal Entry: Fri Nov 11, 2011, 3:35 AM
It's about time I updated this damn thing.
Since my last journal, I've had two small trips - Yamba and Maleny. One big event - the Zombie Walk for brain research. Oh, and Halloween came and went. Not one bloody trick or treater! What gives kids? I've already shared the photos for those.
I was scheduled to shoot Jane again today, but the poor kid was sick. Normally, I'd think, "Yeah, sure..." but Jane is a real trooper. She was going to brave it but I put her off. We can do it when she's better. Obber-reliable model that one. I have to admit, I was quite chuffed that she was gunna do it regardless - the poor kid thinks I have talent!
On the home front, my unwell son is getting much weller (yes, I know that's not a real word) which is just a treat. I look after my grandson every few weeks now which is just a hoot. The little fella is just adorable - a bit pig headed and strong willed (dunno where he gets that from!) - but adorable. Work is still a four letter word but I'm only 0.8 of a man now - I love it! (that means I work 4 days a week now.)
The big news is that my Rozie is planning our next year's trip. Italy (Rome, Venice and the Amalfi coast), Turkey (let's hope the earthquakes have stopped) and Sarajavo. It's not until April, but the excitment of the build-up is at least half as good as the trip itself. I can't wait!!!! Expect to be royally spammed with much photography from that one.
Christmas decorations are going up in all the stores - it's only November guys!!. I'll break out the decorations at home on 1 December for the month. My niece's wedding is coming up very soon. And, I'm bound to do a few more weekend trips over Christmas. Between all that, I should have some photos worth posting. It's summer over here too - so the frogs and reptiles are back out. They always put on a show - and at least one of my dogs in hospital for a few days. Damn it! Oh, and the GFC has struck a mighty blow at the pale underbelly of Photoslamour. Numbers of students are way down. Even the courses I run through the adult education system are down. Still, smaller classes are just so very easy to run.
So that's it - pretty boring all around. Thank goodness there are no real dramas in my life at the moment. Feel free to wish me much more boredom! (at least until next April).
Stay well and share the love campers!
