My home internet is dead again.

The other day I grabbed a copy of Little House on the Prairie to read on the train. Laura Ingalls Wilder books used to be facinating. I persisted with its ‘aimed at younger children’ style until I hit something along the lines of, “And Ma picked out an orange looking carrot”.

It was too much. I had to stop.

Carrots are orange and as far as I know they don’t come in any other colour.

Fare ye well, Little House on the Prairie, you served me well back in the day but from now on no more!


emugrass_110w.jpgI’ve been bashing around the florists of these parts for a little while now, in that I’ve checked a few out and gotten partial/full quotes off most.

So the full quote that I originally received from a very professional florist, really nice to deal with and both my little sisters had done work experience there was fairly pricey. Not so pricey that I didn’t totally baulk at going with them (because it was comparable to lots of the partial quotes), but enough to have me decide that I’d do a bit more scouting.

Today Laura and I took on up to a florist that is very local to where Geoff’s family live and only about 10mins to where my family live.

The price is a whole HALF what the other place was asking and she was also very professional and I had a good idea of the ‘style’ I was after fairly quickly

I am not committed to it yet, but these prices are beautifully plausible. And I’d be very willing to pay it, so someone who knows what they are doing can deal with the hassle of it all.


Oh have I jumped back with glee into the blogging scenario! No posts, I have simply been strapped for time.

September-October is a nasty one for university students, with homework that seems to escalate to match the climax of a year.

To count, I really don’t theoretically have that much due, sure I keep discovering bits of my 20th Century History stuff that I haven’t done – thank you to quick typing and the ability to crap on and still sound half intelligent! I have a book to design for Form and Structure (Indesign class eg: typesetting/layout) – I am using Henry Lawson’s Bill the Ventriloquist Rooster and due to my miserable last assignment I’d like it to be very up to scratch. I have a photo book to piece together- I’ll eventually think about that one. And a design brief to write/research to do, which is a 2 person assignment that I’m frankly not all that worried about.

There are times where it is really nice that my fingers have the gift of the gab.

Thoughts are in the churner about all manner of things, but this is not a promise of posts to come, nor an apology in advance, it is just a comment a little self reminding.

Things I forgot to mention (or was holding out on) over the past little while, some of it wedding related:

a) Anita, Geoff’s sister is engaged to Stuart and their proposal story is nothing short of an epic. Congratulations to them both! I like Anita lots and I think Stu will be good for her (and she for him).

b) We found and bought bridesmaid dress material, shoes and I’ve also gone and gotten invitation paper, these last few weeks have been very productive

c) My cousin Jaclyn got engaged a while back and is getting married soon, I caught up with her today and we got to talk weddings ‘realistically’.

d) I really like the people at my uni. It seems they’re an honest bunch. I left my usb stick in a class room and actually got it back the following day. Ahh the exemplary nature of Swinburne.

e) The girls I hang out with at uni are great fun and well worth a mention, I’m rethinking my once proposed, “Get through uni and have just acquaintances to get you by”, they’re far too good quality for that, pity they live all so far away.

f) I’ve discovered quite like watching Rugby League.
