It's only words....

It's bloody cold up here in Walnut Grove this evening.

I've been inhaling the very heady fumes of petrol all night, since Beloved has emptied out SB's petrol tank in the last couple of hours. He has the bike pulled down into what seems to be a million pieces polishing, buffing and cleaning it. He has part of the engine at a mates place at the moment, trying to re-weld the area that has cracked again. It's the same spot as before the trip to Cowra. Maybe this time it will work. Then it, the frame, and all the nuts and bolts will be re-painted. The Sponsor treated SB to a new sticker kit to make his bike look really schmick; and it certainly will the way that it's going. I would like to post a piccy when it's finished, but the camera is still on the fritz. The only one that can upload at the moment is GG onto her laptop, directly off the memory card. The man's been very busy because I reminded him on Thursday that it's 2 weeks before we leave for South Australia, not 3 weeks.......

And just to make life interesting (as usual), we won't be able to leave in the wee small hours of Thursday morning and have a leisurely 2 day drive over ..oh no......
I put in an on-line application to Big W on SB's behalf... and he has a 2hr interview at 4pm that Thursday...........................................

And I applied for a position in the Community Aged Day Care in Muswellbrook while I was at it, for myself. I have been filling in for them on Mondays for a few weeks now. I have an interview this Wednesday morning..... Beloved has convinced me to apply for the next to rounds of the Enrolled Nurse Traineeships as well. They close on October 12. The application is almost done, but I am waiting for a referree report from my Boss. We don't really gel, she and I, and I haven't told her yet about the Day Care interview, as I think that it may colour her referree report..... She has promised to have it for me by Wednesday or Thursday this week. The daycare manager(Charlie) and her manager (the head Occupational Therapist whom I have known and worked for for over 5yrs as a social support worker 1 day each fortnight) know about my difficulties with The Boss, and that I am applying for a traineeship, but have said that they are not too worried. The manager wants me to work with her, but there's more to the interview than just Charlie and me getting along like a house on fire.......

I have joined in the fun(?), and have devoted way too much time to facebook over the last couple of days. There is certainly a lot of things to do. I really suck at scrabble though; I might have to give this up as a bad joke....... it's really denting my self -confidence......
I am much better at TV trivia...... I guess that it just shows how I mis-spent my youth... still can't workout how to play 2 player games though. There just doesn't seem to be much of a challenge setting a word, then guessing it yourself......

I think that facebook has been good for the Marys this week. They can interact and enjoy each others company without having to talk..... And a lot of that has been done this week. Things have certainly slowed down on the blogging front. And if there's a take-home message from this week, it might be that when blogging we should;
  • write our post or comment
  • sit back and breathe
  • re-read what we've written
  • breathe
  • and think.......
  • and do it all again before we press "publish" or "post"

    So, enjoy what's left of your weekend all!

    • See you on the 'Book or the Blog!

Smile an everlasting smile, a smile can bring you
Near to me.
Don't ever let me find you down, cause that would
Bring a tear to me.
This world has lost its glory, lets start a brand
New story now, my love.
Right now, there'll be no other time and I can show
You how, my love.

Talk in everlasting words, and dedicate them all to
And I will give you all my life, I'm here if you
Should call to me.
You think that I don't even mean a single word i
Its only words, and words are all I have, to take
Your heart away

Yes, facebook is very addictive. BUT, I am only a few points behind Anchell in one of our games! For now anyway... I think facebook is a good break for people, can do silly things, but stay neutral. Although I did send Anchell a crab as a free gift to get back at her. And a rude talking smiley. I digress, Goodnight!!
