Monday Madness #3
Monday Madness <= click if you want to join the fun.

1) I wish people would just open their hearts to accepting God, and learn to respect each other & themselves.

2) My biggest pet peeve where other drivers are concerened, is their inability to stick to the speed limit, or to indicate when they're about to turn, etc.

3) I will probably spend about $0.00 on holidays this season. (Have no plans for a holiday)

4) I really hope to have all my bills paid by the end of this calendar year.

5) I make about three resolutions each year, and keep all of them.

Blog Fodder #1
This weeks Blog Fodder topic is: "What are some of your memorable experiences at school?" - submitted by Jean-Luc Picard

I have so many wonderful memories from my time spent at the Mypolonga Primary School, so I will share some of those, rather than go into details about my experiences at High School, which is something I think is best left in the past..

I remember my first day at school - there was only me and one other boy starting school for the first time that year. His name was Andy, and we became very close friends for the duration of time at Primary School.

I remember the Egg Hunts every Easter - we would spend our recess & lunch times creating little nests under the big peppercorn trees behind the lunch shed. We'd dig holes in the dirt, filling them with the leaves and pink pebbles that had fallen from the trees - I can still recall the smell of these leaves! On the school day that fell closest to Good Friday, everyone would go with their class teachers and see what had been left for them in their nests.


I remember the school concerts at the end of every school year - our drama/music teacher would give each class their own play to put together and act out on stage in the old institute building. These concerts were attended by parents, grandparents, siblings, neighbours, friends, it was really a big event. At the end of each concernt, the entire school (usually about 60 students) would gather on the stage to sing some Christmas carols. At my last concert when in grade 7, a friend and I dressed as Nuns, held candles, and sang The Lords Prayer. Then I changed costumes and danced the Can-Can with the other three girls who were in grade 7 with me. In total there were only seven of us in grade 7, and we were each awarded a special gift that year at the end of the concert. I was introduced to the audience as being the 'mother of the school' I honestly loved going to school. I have so many memories from all the concerts I was a part of for those seven years.

I can recall all the nature films we watched, all the projects we did on animals and different countries around the world. I can remember watching the olympic games, and writing letters of encouragement to some netball players.

I can remember all the camps we went on - each year we went somewhere different. The YMCA camp - camping at Arbury Park Outdoor School - making a mud-brick house - orienteering - nature walks - playing murder in the dark and storm the lantern - Silk screen printing - nature walks - photography - water activities - too many things to write about!

In summery, I will say that my days of attending Primary School hold some of my most treasured memories.

Thursday Thirteen #2

13 Things you'll find on my computer desk!
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

1) My computer, of course!

2) A 'verse-a-day' calendar. Today's verse is: For surely, O Lord, you bless the righteous; you surround them with you favor as with a sheild. *Psalm 5:12*

3) A printer, complete with some A4 copy paper.

4) A white ceramic vase with blue oriental patterning on one side - I don't keep flowers in this vase, because our cat "KitKat" would try to eat them! So you will only find pens in this vase.

5) Some music CD's - currently I have been listening to 'Falling Into You' - Celine Dion & the Sountrack for Sleepless In Seattle.

6) Two CD-Rom discs that my son owns - Zoo Tycoon, Complete Collection & Taz: Wanted.

7) A postal catalogue from an Australian overstock outlet company - oodirect.

8) A consent form from my daughters school, asking permission for her to visit our local olympic pool as an end of year activity.

9) A consent form from my sons school, asking permission for him to watch a documentary called 'Super size Me'.

10) A cute little teddy sitting on a satin pillow, holding a Christmas stocking and wearing a santa hat.

11) A Christmas tree made of silver wire and silver tinsel - on top of this tree I have placed a gold angel holding a harp, and around the base of the tree are several imitation gifts covered in gold satin, gold foil stars, and gold wire ribbon.

12) A 5 cent coin that my daughter found on the floor this morning.

13) A bluetooth dongle.
