Too many people are unable to say that little word Mandi, for our own good we have to learn we can say it without feeling guilty. I'm glad you pointed out what you have done and what you are about to do but of course you shouldn't really have to.    Well done and good luck with the interview on Friday.

Well done Mandi, hope something good comes from your meeting on Friday. And they find what's wrong with your new car do you can get it back and enjoy it.

Congratulations to a all the mums, some very talented children.

I had some good news today, my job finishes on Thursday, my boss sold the business :( new owners don't need me.
I had a call today offering me a job doing the same sort of thing next year but less hours, which I don't mind as I get very tired these days.
I child-proofed my house, but they still get in!

That's great news Jen, it sounds as if it's time to do less now and you are obviously very happy about your boss selling the business.  I hope the new job is just what you want.  

Out to lunch again today, another lovely meal at the Palais in Semaphore.

Mandi you did good ;D ;D ;D

Jeniwa how neat was that :-)) :-)) :-))

I had a win today with TruBlu . http://www.trublutravelling.com.au/contribute-1/cool-wines-in-the-coal-valley

One of my stories won a prize of a fuel voucher. I was gobsmacked! I can't believe anyone voted for it or even read it.


Cookie may have some news too.

Jeninwa that's great news.

And Gert congratulations. Fuel vouchers are very handy. Well done :)

And as for my car  I'm starting to doubt there is actually something wrong. The thermo fan was on when I turned my car off which is normal at times when the car needs to cool down. But it was running for 25 minutes which seems way too long to me. I don't know. Hopefully if there is a problem they fix it, if there isn't a problem then all good. But it happened when I used the cruise control for the first time. Could be connected. But I'm not good with mechanical stuff.

Dede you should be very proud of yourself. Well done.

Jeninwa that is very good news for you. More coffee time.  ;D ;D

Gert you are a star. Well done.

Thanks folks I won a Dream Pot, so I am thrilled as we don't have one and I believe they are good.
