Well, I am almost so over Xmas, I managed to farm off the rugrats tonight, that allowed me to wrap about 35 presents and find places to hide them, Santa still has a bit of work to do tomorrow but the mammoth effort of wrapping is nearly over. I have been spending far too much time shopping and I am sure that the Bank will be having a bonanza on me this Xmas. Thankfully for the first time in about 7 years we don't have a street party organised, why thankfully, cause I think I am over waking at 7am on Xmas morning to the kids sreaming with excitment and my head screaming with a throbbing headache. All I have to do tommorrow is work out how to hide 2 TV's and a Puta.

No work until 5th January, WOOO HOOO, heading off to a friends partially constructed holiday house in Seaspray

Well 2 posts within a matter of an hour, I have just learnt of the death of a Union Stalwart John Halfpenny. On reading The Age, I did have a chuckle at Jeff Kennett's quote

"I will never forget the 100,000 workers that John Halfpenny called on to the streets in November 1992 outside my parliamentary office, demanding my head and every other part of my anatomy."

I am proud to say that I was one of those 100,000 people, glad to see that Jeff remembers us so fondly.

Some people have time for a daily blog, me I have time for a weekly blog. I have been reprimanded on my slackness with my personal site, so I have decided that this will be my main communication channel from now on. I will eventually update my site, but don't hold ur breath.

What a rollercoaster of a week, Jarrod had his Grade 6 Graduation on Wednesday evening, a very emotional evening it was, my baby is off to Secondary College next year.

I have finally managed to take a picture of my Xmas Lights, the picture doesn't really show the detail but for those that asked here they are.

Well haven't written for a few weeks shame on me ;-)). Mark Latham became the leader of the ALP he has Howarse is running scared, good to see.

Well it's 11 days to Christmas, and don't I know it. Xmas parties just general celebrations prevail. Went to an interesting Xmas Party hosted by Paragon Computers on Friday evening, held at Cargo Restaurant at Victoria Harbour, I must say that the venue was interesting and if you are ever fortunate to go to Cargo, check out the toilets.
