Tonight I had some friends Dave and Ande and their two girls over for tea, it was the first time I'd had people over since I moved in apart from when Mum and Dad were up.
Well I cooked up a feast and it actually turned out ok.
While we were sitting around yacking, their daughter Monique who is two, was crashing around in the kitchen. After a little bit, I thought I'd investigate and what did I find? It was the funniest thing and it cracked me up, she had all red over her lips and face and I thought she must have gotten into the fridge and attacked the pavlova. Ande came in as well and we opened the fridge and I saw the pav had a fork in it. I closed the fridge and Ande had a closer look and it wasn't a fork, but it was a serving spoon for desserts. How smart was she, didnt even attack it with her hands, so we figured we should probably eat it.

Those were the days, the easter egg hunt at night and then getting up early the next morning to go scrounge the eggs, because you could now see them. The bike riding with everyone else and the freezing water while swimming.
Whatever happened to those days? Would be nice to get together and get the tradition started again.

After awhile of doing this one of the drivers left and his job was advertised, and no one wanted his run, so I talked to the manager and said, pay for my license, give me a brand new truck and let me take my holidays when I want and I will do it for you and he came to the party and gave me everything I asked for. I did this for a year, when my supervisor left and so I had to fill in and do his job for a few months until they advertised the job. I applied, but it was given to another guy and I had to work under him. I lasted about a month before I got sick of having to help him and one day I saw my old boss and walked into the office where he was and I knew a few of the guys there and go " have you got a job for me" Seems as though there was a job there, and so I had a look. A few days later while walking in, the guy in charge of the job, waves me into the office and goes to me " have you put in for the job yet" I said no, so he gets me a form and says fill this in and hand it in. I do this and a few days later I get a phone call from my old boss telling me I got the job. 11 other guys applied for the job as well, and they gave it to me without an interview, Sometimes you just fall into the job.
My new job is Special services, we get all the jobs the other guys can't handle. We do alot of computer deliveries, some including million dollar computer racks, that you have to be very careful of, or straight out the door. Some days are great and some aren't so crash hot.
Here we have one of our trucks filled up with chairs from our head office, we had to pick them up and bring them back to work, then the next morning a few of us had to turn up at 5am to unload them, put them on pallets and then wrap them. Much better to sit on I think.
This day I had a pretty easy day and had three hours to kill, so seeing as though I was out the northern beaches way I thought I would pop up to palm beach and see what it was like. Home and Away is filmed in palm beach, but flaming Alf was out of the country. I actually went to whale beach for a look, but the beaches were closed for dangerous surf conditions. It's pretty tight to get there in a truck.

I had a little chat to our playing coach( yes that is him in the pic) and he goes don't work to hard and to take it easy, so I've got it sweet, if I want to take that option. I thought this was a pretty easy session, but at work today my legs were cactus, I'm so sore. Is there any masseurs out there :)

A click later and I had my manual, Seems as though Explorer doesn't work properly and I was to try fox instead. I was told they could bring me a download when they come up in two weeks to save my downloads, but alas I couldn't wait. Just a short time later and I was on the road again, the pictures were going where I wanted then to, and a Blog was born.
One more credit of adding others peoples blog links to my page, I think she shall soon be sick of the questions. Thanks Marge

We were on the water for about an hour and a half and at one stage you have to put your paddles on the side of the course and you go and do what they call surfing, where you get put in a certain spot and the guide who is with you gets you all to do certain things at the same time and you have to try and stay in the raft. Well our guide said everyone comes out, but not us, and he tried and he tried to get us to flip. Elisa did end up falling out later on, and on our last run with three rapids to go, our front paddlers put us onto a concrete bank and that was the end of us all, we flipped right over and we all ended up floating on down. The course is man made and the rapids are made by putting concrete post in the right spots and depths, so when you come out you need to keep your legs up or you will hurt yourself as the water depth is no more than a metre deep in most places.
If your ever in the area, you need to give it a try, it's worth the money and the experience

I might need a few tips to get started here, what to put in that will be of interest, I think PB might need to help me. Maybe get myself another camera, so I can add photos, or maybe I can just break copyright and use other peoples pics, who knows.
Actually this week, I feel like davey Crocket at the alamo, I see you thinking and pondering what I mean. Well Basically I'm the last of the Triffitt clan in the big city, well with the name Triffitt now. Steph and Chloe blew out of town this week, for the big city of Dunorlan where Eden and them are building a house. Just so you know, even though I didn't see you much lately, I will miss you guys and getting to pop around.
