Chit Chat / Woohooo - New Kitchen has begun
« on: June 25, 2013, 04:38:17 am »
I've made the new kitchen my busy project while I job search.  I'm having a great time.  It's been a very busy month getting the kitchen contents OUT of the kitchen and secreted in all parts of the house garage and on the pool table at my SIL's  :D

We have STUFF!!!!!!

Finally finished everything last night at about 11:30 - just the last minute things that needed to be cleared off the bench top and a quick wipe of the sink and benchtops.  It's the best it has ever looked  ;D

I have hopefully attached a pre-ripped out pic of the old soon to be forgotten kitchen.  The new kitchen has an island bench, new appliances and a composite stone benchtop.  It will be a couple of weeks until it happens, but it's all very exciting!

Chit Chat / Question for Demos
« on: April 23, 2013, 12:05:23 pm »
Hi All,

I was wondering what the etiquette is amongst demonstrators when it comes to holding TM demos.

My SIL wants to have a demo focussing on the varoma - this will be the first demo she has had (she really wants a thermoserver).  The demonstrator we both went through to purchase out TM's will be away for a while so she contacted another demonstrator who we know through another family member.  This demo was reluctant to commit to a demonstration with an existing customer and mentioned that she didn't want to step on toes.

Any comments?

Chit Chat / Job Hunting
« on: October 18, 2012, 07:16:34 am »
I was informed yesterday by my boss that he would not be renewing my contract in the New Year - he wants someone with a different skill set.  I think there is more to it but I am very thankful I have a lot of time to organise myself for the future  :)

I have until very early March next year - which sounds like a long time, but it allows me to shop around and get the right job for me.
I did think that was here - but with the new boss coming in at the start of the year (after my previous boss was forced out), other organisational changes that have been leaving a sour taste in the mouth of a lot of people, it seems like a good time to be moving on.  Unfortunately this lines up with what I can see as a lot less jobs being advertised for geologists with my experience - but I'm sure something will turn up *grin*.

I'll certainly miss all of my team here - and it is hard not to start the leaving process right here and now - even though I have 4 months to go.  In a way it may have been better to be paid out and leave straight away - but I haven't been afforded that luxury.

Anyway, just wanted to share and find out who else is out there in the process of finding themselves a new position and wish you all the best of luck!

Chit Chat / Meat pie filling using left overs
« on: June 23, 2012, 10:01:46 am »
Hi All,

I have some left over lamb that I'd like to use for pie filling.  I've tried it before with the Aussie Meat Pie recipe from Meat on the Menu - but it was a bit dry.  Does anyone have any suggestions about how much liquid to add when using precooked meat?


Chit Chat / Woohoo - weekend of cooking
« on: May 04, 2012, 08:20:03 am »
I managed to leave my For Food's Sake at my sister's place when I was home on holidays in March.  She sent it last wekk - I now have it and have firm plans for the weekend.  Yay!

Introduce Yourself / Finally registered!

Hi All,
I took the plunge and invested in a TM when I was home for Christmas last year. I've been lurking on the forum since then. I've finally done something about joining!

I am currently living and working in rural Thailand, so I can't always get the ingredients I want to try out all the great new recipes I have - but it hasn't stopped me yet *grin*
I'm really looking forward to sharing ideas with everyone.
