Our family is spread out across the country and across the world, and what better way to keep in touch than a collaborative digital journal?

Trin's christening, packing up and a whole lot of things

Hi all,

I too have been quiet on the Bandwagon front. I meant to send something about Trin's Christening ages ago.. oops. Anyway, better late than never I always say. *grin* Do you like the picture? It's one of my favourites.

I really enjoyed the few days I had in Bendigo - it was great to see everyone again.

Jared, how did the production go? Did your hero pose go down well? How are you going with the AstroJax? There's even a website about it - maybe you could find some new tricks.

Carolynn, did you end up going to the park? Did you talk to your music teacher about learning the clarinet? I think it'd be really cool for you to learn it - I learnt flute and then clarinet when I was at school. *grin*

I'm glad that the Laser coped with all of the stuff that I packed into it too. For those of you who didn't see it, I had packed the poor little car almost to the rafters. The influence of Dad's packing ability along with three years of living at Halls and coming home (with all my stuff) for the holidays, followed by two years as a Smover having to carefully pack a station wagon every tour means that I am really good at packing things into as small a space as possible. The car didn't handle as well as it has in the past - but given that it was FAR heavier than it's been before, I'm not surprised.

I finished work last Tuesday, and have been packing and cleaning since then. I managed to sell most of my furniture (the bed, coffin shelves, bookshelves, tv and other stuff). Today the Salvos are coming to pick up the washing machine (some time between 7.30am and 3.30pm - so I've got to wait around all day.. blah!), removalists are coming Thursday morning and carpet cleaners on Friday. It's really strange to be packing up the house - but strange in a good way.

Anyway, this is already a long entry, so I'm going to stop here and let someone else have a say.

Ooh, and I DID get a Halloween Bandwagon header (mostly) done - I'll send it through once I finish it.. see - better late than never! *grin*

*big hugz* to all..


  1. Glad to hear you sold so much Dayna. Your house will be very empty by now. I wonder how much there will be to store? Oh well, we'll deal with that when it arrives.
    We'll be very happy when you return and reclaim your treasures.
    I'm sure you'll help Glenn and D with homemade Bailey's for Christmas and a flaming pudding.
    lots of love

  2. Can't wait to see you, sister! You WILL be with us for Christmas, right?

  3. Dee reminds me - when should we expect you??! My work phone is 0787 966 1018!

  4. i arrive in London at about 11.30am on Thursday.. then i'll be heading to a train station and finding my way onto a train. I'm not sure what time I'll get to Edinburgh, but I can text or call you when i'm on the way. I'm aiming to get off at Haymarket - cos that's closest to you guys.. I expect to get to Edinburgh between 6 and 8pm depending on customs lines and train/underground connections. :)

    I'll see you tomorrow! (well, it's my tomorrow.. and i've got a day on a plane between now and then.)
