thursday december 29th

  1. here i am back in the land of allnurses, it has been difficult to get to post here while catriona was here. although i have been trying to read the gm threads. she is flying home right now somewhere over the atlantic, hopefully she hasnt had any problems with customs or the connecting flights, we wont know until tomorrow.
    it has been a busy few weeks, and now we have to get down to the business of packing up ourselves, this is the first of my last 3 nights. i just feel that they cant go quickly enough.
    i sometimes wonder why we are leaving here, walking around in 90 degree heat and sunbathing on the beaches and swimming in the sea or the pool, we are surrounded by people who are here for the holidays and have paid a fortune for a week or two. they stop to talk to us and ask how long we are here for....when we say 18 months they nearly fall over!:roll
    it wont be this shortly, i will be joining you all in the big wide world where people have to wear lots of clothes and have heat in their houses! :chuckle
    well you all have a good day, theres nothing for breakfast yet, as its too early!

    I'm off to bed too. Have a restful sleep, those who are off to dreamland. Those who are working, hope the shift isn't hectic.

    Good night all.

    Mornina cariad, cheerful and Dianah.
    Just got home from a 3-11 that ended at 0030. I thought I was going to be stuck over until am when they ahd a call in but they found another agency nurse to come in. yay.
    Got that terribly dead tree out of the house today. In another month or so we may have all the needles out LOL.
    Had a great week with dh brother visiting. Now we can settle back into everyday life. I love the holidays but boy things sure get hectic.
    Just got through munching on leftover turkey and pumpkin pie. will probably head off to bed myself soon.

    Good morning all. I am just off to take my DD to town and then to the station. She is going to stay with her boyfriend about 300-400 miles away. I hope she makes it ok, it is snowing in his part of the world. I am sitting drinking hot water and eating weetabix - all part of my healthy diet - yes, it's back to normality again - or at least an attempt as it's only 10 days till I am due to go back to work. I thought I would try out my normal routine to see if I am up to it yet - and oh boy was getting out of my warm bed at 0700 really difficult.

    Will pop back later.

    Emma & Kennedy

    Emma on Halloween. Looks like my brother. As far as the glasses, don't know if they're prescription or not. It was taken at my SIL mom's.

    I'll get some more recent photos up as soon as I get them downloaded.

    Hi guys

    Cariad, please don't keep us in suspense. Where are you heading off to next? Hope dd has a good flight home.

    Cheerful, Dianah, Lisa, have a good nights sleep.

    Fone, hot water and weetabix? Excuse me.......... Sorry, I know it must be part of a healthty diet, and far be it from me to be responsible for you having any more illness in your life, but.............God bless ya for being able to face that first thing in the morning.

    Bethin, your nieces are absolutely gorgeous! Awaiting more photos!

    Well, the job interview went well, I guess. In other words, I think it did. And, Jnette, still no mention of salary. I was always told to wait till you had a firm offer before mentioning salary, so I can't bring myself to bring it up. Aaaarrrghh!!!!!! Watch it be $10/hr!

    Siri, I don't think my dogs look up, but perhaps others do. I'll take your word for it! See, being naive again - listening to others. Love you even if I do think you're mistaken.

    Lots of errands to run today, so better get some sleep. See y'all later -

    g'day all it's 2110 here "down under", so my thursday is drawing to it's close. have only just finished reading wednesday's thread! with the time differences, i get a tad mixed up, sometimes! lol yes, i know, you're thinking; "about time grace got her days/times mixed up. afterall, she's usually confusing us!" right??? lol pity there's not an upside down smiley i could use! lol

    wonderful pics of the babies! cute as can be.

    it's been hot hot hot here today. we went to the beach, took a picnic lunch and sat in a park across from the beach. after devouring our delicious, fresh, turkey and salad sandwiches, compote of fruit, slice of fruit bun, washed down by a cool can of "lift" , we enjoyed a leisurely stroll along the waters edge. the cool water was a welcome relief from the burning rays of the scorching sun! boy! it was hot! after winter and a cold spring, it's easy to forget just how hot our summers can be. this was my first such outing in a long long time. i wanted it. i needed it. and, despite the heat, i enjoyed it!
    wishing you all a safe, healthy and happy thursday!
    thanks for the friendship! :icon_hug:

    Good morning. After finishing a three day modified fast yesterday, I am ready for a real breakfast, but attempting to make myself wait till at least 6, so I don't end up famished at 10 am and throw myself all off schedule. I'm considering trying out some sort of a structured program after the new year starts. I don't usually participate in these sorts of things, following a plan seems to run counter to my natural instincts. At any rate, I bought a box of that Raisin Bran Crunch yesterday and going to have that for breakfast.

    Hello from work.

    Weezie - it isn't HOT here . . . yesterday it poured rain and this morning my windows were frozen over. I'm so ready for some hot weather.

    Cariad - I'd move there in a second if they had logging for my dh.

    Better get to work, huh?
