- kids to school (yaaaa)
- Visit the hospital to fill out all the forms, get blood test lab forms, etc.
- Visit Bank to get Aussy cash
- Start packing my bag!

EEEEkkkkkkk... it's getting close now, I'm getting EXCITED! And NERVOUS.... I am not usually shy/nervous meeting new people, don't get me wrong... ONCE I'm in the situation... it's just the anticipation that is getting to me! And I havn't seen my nieces in a long long time either, so I'm so looking forward to seeing them too!

My niece Christina (my namesake), is graduating from Police college, she's gunna be a cop!!!! Hard to believe, she's been talking about being a cop for at least 6 years! I'm so proud of her for following her dreams.

I hope to get lots of photos of my holiday in Melbourne, BUT.... I am NOT TAKING MY COMPUTER!!!! I do not plan on blogging while I am away at all.... if I do it will be from an Internet Kiosk or at my niece's home.... my Mum has given me the HARD WORD about spending any time on the computer! She hates it! So please don't abandon me... I will be back! TOMORROW might be my last post for a while! Yikes... so can't imagine not blogging!


WELL... it's been a busy and interesting morning! I went and posted the parcel to America finally, stopped into the hospital to get all the info for me operation, had a car accident, got some groceries and came home.

CAR ACCIDENT!!!! Yep, I backed out of a car park (after looking I might add) and this guy came outta NOWHERE and I ummmmmm... backed into him!

THIS is the damage to my van ( just a tail light)

And ummmmm... THIS is the damage to HIS CAR:

All the glass from the driver's door was all over him and the road!

OOOOPS! Looks like I came off best eh? Anyway.... insurance company to be notified, Police already notified.. he has no insurance, he probably has no Rego or Warrant either... What a great start to my week. Hope it gets better!

Wellington airport was closed due to fog this morning... I hope this does not happen on Wednesday morning when I am wanting to fly out!

I am hoping for a quiet, UNEVENTFUL afternoon OK?

MR CHOO: THIS is just for you: (you asked for it!)

Steve visited this afternoon which was lovely cos he let me go and have a sleep (I was feeling wiped out!), and he looked after the kids till dinnertime. So good to have a wee nap! I must NOT stay up till 1.30am sewing again! I've still done NO PACKING! Maybe later on tonight?

End of Day: well it WAS busy eh? NSV: have been rather good today food-wise, kinda lost my appetite a bit. nite nite.


  1. Have a wonderful time and see you when you get back. :)

  2. Will miss you so hope you find a few moments to post. Know what you mean .... Mum would be shocked if she knew just how much time I spend with Lady Laptop. TWJ has some big moans every now & then But like all good wives I ignore him because it's usually only when he is tired or grumpy or both and that's not quite all the time. lol

  27. EEEKKK (for car accident).

    Glad you were okay. Was the other driver a little old man wearing a hat??

    I have this thing about little old men drivers who wear hats. One hit me at the Cobham Drive/Evans Bay intersection, in Wgtn, some years back. He drove right through the flamin' intersection, against a red light. Claimed he didn't see that the light was red. Silly old fool t-boned me and then he had the cheek to blame me!!
