The end of 2005 almost

Well xmas is over thank heavens, my December has been pretty hectic but a friend of mine must have had a positively draining time. What with two major birthdays and xmas and all the other things that happen at this time of year. I am off to the caravan park for a couple of weeks soon, it will be different this year, it will be the first time in twenty years that all of my children haven't been with me. The oldest will be up for a few days but the 18yo twins both have to work full time at the moment and can't come. That leaves me the 16yo and the two young ones. My wife doesn't like camping and will only come for a night or so. Do just me and the little ones essentially. They are looking forward to feeding the cows and swimming in the river and going fishing and all the other things you do on holidays.

Seeing as Narelle is improving all the time I have been able to finish a few jobs around the house. I have almost ready to tile the downstairs bathroom, which will make life more comfy for the boys. After that I only have to do the upstairs ensuite and WIR then the lounge room and I am finished !! I will post some pictures of the interior and exterior soon. I was going to do it now but the camera has ceased to function.

Early Dec 2005

Well my 18yo son is in Qld with his mates on the Gold coast doing God knows what, hope he keeps out of trouble and doesn't fall for a beautiful girl from another state. His twin sister is with her friends at Lorne again I hope they have enough sense to keep out of trouble. The 20yo is looking for another job I trying to talk her into finishing her tafe course or doing another that suits her more. The 16yo he is starting year 11 next year and has an induction day at his senior school in North Melbourne. The 3yo girl is beautiful like her sisters and like all kids her age is just funny and gorgeous and loving (most of the time). The 2yo redhead boy is trouble all over but very affectionate. Red hair and curls all the old ladies love him. My wife is finally getting better all the time and slowly losing weight.

As for me well I don't like my new work but it pays well and the rewards should be good in a couple of years. I am riding my bike to work most days about 30k return. I must get fit for Nepal in Feb, no use spending all this money to not ski as much as possible.

Politically I think things are good, I have a couple of reservations about the governments workplace laws, however each day I am grateful that that lunatic Latham did not win the election. Margo Kingston has shut down her webdiary, pity it was worth a laugh to see so many morons put down their ill thought views in public.

Thats all I miss some of my old friends I will try and catch up one day soon.
