nearly over

Well I have less than 2 weeks of classes left and two assignments to go. Hopefully this will mean that I can go to the Blue Mountains this weekend and do some exploring. I'm also trying to get everything organized for when mom gets here. Booking hostels and diving and all that good stuff. We are all getting excited. I just got an email from Con and Carol and they are starting their garlic so they may be done by the time we get there. There may be no rooting or stripping left for us to do.

crunch time

Well it is down to the last month of classes and I have a million assignment to do and don't want to do any of them. I'm getting excited about my mom coming, it is less than a month as well. Time flies when your busy. The weather is getting hotter and hotter here, it was up to 30C today.

long time no write

Well I had a really long unexpected visit at Conrad and Carol's this past week. I went up there last weekend just to stay the weekend and ended up staying a week and a half. They asked me to stay and do some work there instead of coming back to Sydney and working in the daycares. I enjoyed working with them much more than coming back to Sydney. It also gave me the opportunity to visit and meet more of their friends and family. We worked on getting their guest house finished and harvesting some of their garden to sell at the market in Braidwood. Luckily I didn't see any snakes and only a couple big spiders. But I did see a few Wombats and wallabys. Saw one Wallaby way closer than I wanted... Conrad hit it on our way to Canberra. While in Canberra we checked out Floriade, which is quite impressive but at the same time I think it needs to be seen from the air. It is a whole bunch of flowers in different shapes to represent different things. Here are a few pictures of my visit to Little Oakley.
