I received my grades today from the university and was most happy to see that I earned myself a 4.0!   :) To celebrate, my husband took me out to dinner at a local favorite (Wren's Nest...check it out if you're ever in the area!). When we arrived, we were seated only to find a note on the table...hmmmm. He read it first and chuckled. I opened it and found the following:

Enjoy a complimentary bottle of wine, your choice.

CONGRATULATIONS! We KNEW you could do it all along!

Love,

My best girlfriend & Kids

:) So...thanks Love for the WONDERFUL evening out and that little black box....and thanks to you my friend for a very thoughtful surprise!!!!! :) :) :)

It's a gorgeous day, the wind has dropped and the sun is shining. The Christmas bush is reddening and looks wonderful against the blue sky. I spotted my first red cherry tomato, there's a cucumber almost full size, the climbing beans are rocketing up the frame and small beans are starting, I'm getting little purple, yellow and red capsicums, and little basil plants are finally popping up from seed that I scattered. Lots more, but generally, it's a pleasure to be in the garden.

Everything's coming together for John's CD launch tomorrow. This thing looks like being bigger than Ben Hur. Now we've got complimentary champagne for early arrivals and gawd knows what else. Should be fun!

I'll try and remember your parsley Sandra, but with everything else going on, I wonder if I will? No good putting it in the car now - it would cook.

13 weeks is 65 days, but as I will no longer be working Wednesdays, this means I only have 52 days left.

I'll be working 4-day weeks cos my wonderful Assistant Director says I can use some of my remaining holidays to attend a Craft group that meets on Wednesdays!!

Only 52 days to go!!

Oops, I forgot the Christmas shutdown & a long weekend for a Festival so it's even less.

Tomorrow's Friday - weekend's coming up, my vege garden is growing fast, I have lots of tomatoes getting bigger but still green, I picked my very first dwarf beans - spring is such an exciting time in the garden! Also I now have everything I need for my Santee. I just need to get it all together and send it.

The only other thing I have to do this weekend is host a CD launch at my folk club on Sunday, which will involve some work, but it will be worthwhile. It's a performance of "Yarri of Wiradjuri", which John wrote 9 years ago, and it has now been recorded - more about it here and here

After last weekend, it's just good to be home doing normal things!

After a short terror concerning our flight reservations not having gone through, we finally found out that they HAD actually gone through. Whew! It would have cost us either double the price for the tickets or we would have had to get up at 2 in the morning to make it to a substitute flight at 6. But that has been resolved.

And everything is taken care of at work, and I am (mostly) packed and the remaining items on my list will be quickly handled. And then...off to the wedding in Sao Paulo, where I go from Autumn-into-Winter to Spring-into-Summer, and the warm embrace of lovely wife's family and friends! And fresh, sweet mangoes and papaya. And figgos, too. Love them figgos. (Them's dried figs before they get dried. A whole different experience eating them fresh and juicy.)

I wish all 'Catters a wonderful Thanksgiving, and none of that routine dysfunctional family stuff that we hear so much about. Tchau!

Mainly because it's nearly over. Actually it was a bloody horrible rotten day, full of stress, and everything that could possibly go wrong, did. I don't even have a chance to enjoy a weekend in the garden, which I had originally planned to do, because my father-in-law died on Wednesday, so I'm being picked up by my son at 6.30 tomorrow morning and I'm spending the weekend in Kempsey at a family gathering with my ex-husband's family.

My daughter may or may not make it depending on whether she can get her act together enough. More stress either way. That's a whole 'nother story. To be fair, these are nice people - it's just that after this week I REALLY could have done with a quiet weekend with my beans and tomatoes.

Then when I come back on Monday there will be the matter of my car to deal with. All of a sudden the most reliable car in the world is starting to play up, and they haven't got to the bottom of the problem yet because it's an intermittent problem. It behaved perfectly when the NRMA came to have a look. AAAAAAAAAAARRRRRRRGGGGGGGGHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!

After several hours of thought & work, I created shelves for my 52 Mudcat CDs - now I have 3 shelves about 12'/30cm long on the back of my computer desk

For yonks I've had most of the Mudcat CDs resting precariously on 3 metal bookends sitting on top of the back of said desk. The rest sat in front of the printer almost getting in the way.

Now I have a wonderful homemade (it's definitley not handcrafted!) set of shelves. I've jut got to make sure any visiting handyperson/carpenter doesn't take a close look.

But I did it & it works!!

Today was a very bittersweet day. It was the last day of my first placement in student teaching. My experience has been absolutely incredible and leaving was really tough. Today is a good day, though. Today I received multitudes of letters (90+) full of fond memories of the last 8 weeks. One 11 year-old young lady wrote me the following:

Mrs. Lilyfestre

The woman who I know made learning a lot less difficult for some people.
The lady who taught me so much, opptamism (her spelling!), happiness and joy.
The Person who always seemed to have something good to say.
The Student Teacher who was THE BEST!!

There were many others that made me realize exactly how big of an impact I had on the children and in more ways than I had anticipated.      The love they showed me today was amazing and that makes today a FANTASTIC (said in 6th grade fashion....you had to be there!) day!!!!

I love to see my staff and see how their weekend was, to get started back working on patients, to drink the best coffee in the world and to visit with my patienrs, tell a couple jokes sing a bit all day long.

I spent the weekend buying nrw furnature and art to redecorate my reception room which had managed to slip into an eighties look. I also made fudge for my mother-in-law who is in a rehab facility dealing with a recent hip replacement. She told me how on the telephone yesterday and it came out marvelous.

Today is a good day becuase a friend of mine battling alcholism has managed to cut his daily intake by half which is quite something. It may not seem like much, but he's drinking less than he has in years and is still on the way down. We hope in a month he will be able to quit entirely.

it is also a good day because Inky the cat who lives under my house, didn't have to have stitches. He got into a major territorial dispute with a young tough Tomcat who insists on coming into our yard. Said Tomcat slashed his face twice, opening up his healed surgical incision from 2 weeks ago. The Vet was able to clean him up and close the wounds with surgical superglue! Amazing. Even better, he doesn't have to wear that cone on his head. It's a good day for Inky! Poor ole Inky. he's such a good boy. I only wish he'd let me make him a housecat. His frequent beefs with this other cat are a good advertisement for why cats are better off living the good life indoors.

It is also a good day because my dinner-plate Dahlias have come back into bloom. They are a nice buttery yellow. The blooms last a long time and are quite profuse. they line the walk up to our cottage. So pretty!

I suceeded in hacking down a purple berberis without injury. The last time I went near it I ended up in casualty having one of it's barbs removed from my index finger, that I didn't know was in there until the poison spread up my arm. The time before I attempted to go near it I ended up in casualty because in my endeavour to secateur it without injury I secateured my little finger and a blood soaked tea towel was the garb of the day.

Today I beat the bugger and it is now a distant memory.

I got post 500 and I visited Alderley Edge (think Alan Garner novels), a childhood entry on my 'Things to Do' list.

Had a wonderful, if elongated walk around the woods, found the wizards' well, took some amazing photos of the view from the edge, and other green pursuits... but didn't drink in the Wizard Inn because it's a posh restaurant now, not a pub... and we weren't in the mood for a Sunday lunch at £19 without alcohol.

So there we go... a good day.

thanks for sharing what works for you. I can also get into a meditative-like state by listening to different pieces of music.

I'm determined that I won't allow myself to fall into the habit of panic attacks, so have been been doing my best to practice breathing quietly & consistently as I've been taught at a Buteyko workshop a few weeks ago.

Today I got the tight feeling in my chest that comes from doing too much (I'd walked around town at lunchtime for over 90 minutes) & knew my heart would start racing unless I sat quietly breathing evenly. It took a while, but I was eventually able to continue my day (eat lunch!) then work at my desk for the rest of the afternoon. I ignored the stuff that had to be done on my feet, & I still have a bit of tightness & tiredness 6 hours later, but heart is working slowly & surely, because I've been concentrating on my breathing all that time.

Because I never learnt to breathe properly my physio had been at me for months to do a course in Buteyko technique, and as improper breathing causes lots of my problems (tiredness, lack of concentration, racing heart, panic attack symptoms) I'm getting better the more I follow instructions.

sandra who had another good day!

Sandra - I'm glad you are able to stop taking a medication that was giving you such trouble. Here's hoping the panic attacks lessen and disappear. I've had them myself off and on and it feels like you're having a massive heart-attack, doesn't it? I don't wish surgery on anyone but I've had friends who have nodes removed surgically and they did very well. Today at least, is good because you don't have to think about this right now. Please try not to. You can always promise yourself to think about tomorrow or at your next octor exam.

MY cure for my panic attacks is actually to listen to 2 different tracks from a Roger Eno album over and over again in a dark room with noise cancellation headphones. I was trained to do biofeedback on myself and alter the ole brainwaves thru will and it works. I can zone myself into a waking coma with Roger's help. If anyone knows him, thank him for me and tell him my doctor now recommends his music to all his panicked and anxious patients.
