I can't sleep so I just started writing my last 21st speech for the year. I'm kind of glad these are coming to an end, or at least slowing right down. It's all been a very strange process. Some of them I have loved heaps, but others feels very strange. So much has changed between all these people. It's been fun walking down memory lane, but also kind of sad. It seems to be the time to close things off almost, or at least accept that its all different now. I don't want to grow up.
Also, in the past weeks, I have seriously lost a lot of ear rings. I have a pile of partnerless ear rings. It's also quite sad.

So maybe last night I didn't do a very good job at toasts, maybe a particularly crap job. But, really, I do love Sam Turnbull, very very much. He is tops, an extrodinary gentleman who happens to love me back, which I'm sure is not an easy task all the time, he puts up with all my silliness, my annoyingness, my lateness, and lots of other stuff and still treats me so well. SO Thankyou Sam, and happy birthday (for yesterday), love you yes I do, CHEERS.

here begins the 'off work till further notice' fun.


Tomorrow I'm going to scripture seminars and chiro, so thats my first day taken care of...saturday, maybe I'll go out to lunch, sunday church stuff...then monday and I'm sure thats when I'll start to get bored. Although apparently workcover stuff could fill some of my time. And maybe they'll find me jobs at work that I can do, like reception/office stuff.

How annoying

I'm sure my arm is fine. It's interesting how quickly the body adapts and works out how to compensate and manage different tasks with a limb half missing.

I am looking dramatic. I've done some muscle damage in my arm muscles, and now I'm wandering around with huge bits of white tape all over my arm/shoulder region. My chiro is nice, well usually, and he probably had good intentions today but my goodness whatever he was doing hurt like hell. Either way not fun. People have been giving me looks full of sympathy or pity. I think it kind of looks like I've been in a car accident or something. David pointed out I should just wear shirts that you can't see it with, but theres a serious amount of tape and its seriously hot. I used it all as a good excuse to get my hair done though as a;I'm feeling grumpy and down about it and hair getting done generally makes me happy, and b;I can't actually wash my hair because that would involve lifting both arms to reach my head and that isn't going to happen. so straight nice hair for a few days.
and I can't drive at the moment, and I can't work with the majority of my clients for some period of time and it hurts...awwwwwwwwww

I really love baking paper. I love cooking with it but i also just loves it texture and look. I'm wondering if there are any other creative ways to use baking paper. I know you can put flowers and stuff in between wax paper and iron them and it makes cool wrapping paper. Wax paper is cool too.

I won!
I bet 30something dollars and won 120something dollars.
what a horse, my goodness.
To make sure I wasn't taking it all serious, I shut my eyes, waved my hand around over the list of horses in the paper, and managed to pick number 16 (forgotten the goodies name). Either way, he came second, and paid out lots. yippee. And I put some money on makybe and some mystry thing.
such fun.
I worked at the pub today. Lots of excess of gambling and drinking around the place. But we had fun, we wore pink, and had beer in our break, and bet on a few horsies together.
I really don't care much for horse racing but wow, how was makybe dive?!?! That was incredible. It really is the race that stops a nation. I had a pile of plates in my hands and all of the sudden the race was about to start and I could no longer move. So I plonked them down, joined the collection of people around the TV and cheered away! Oh the excitement! Even parliament stops. Thats great. I'm proud to be Australian. Proud to be a part of a country that all stops together to cheer on some 4 legged creatures with short men with colourful costumes riding them round a track. There's got to be some feeling of community in there, whether or not excessive alcohol and gambling cancel that out I'm not sure, but really if you forget all that - you have just a bunch of super happy people having a party over some horses.
