The Family Bandwagon

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?

new TV

No not really.We had our aerial checked out and had set top box installed professionally. What clear reception! We also had a booster fitted because this area gets poor reception. Now our old tele looks as good as the ones in the shops and we can get the digital channels. The serviceman told us some of the new plasma and LCD ones are coming into the workshop already. An extended warranty would certainly be wise since one part of one they repaired under warranty was $4000.
Also had a phone call to say our blinds are ready and would be installed tomorrow. Yeah!!!
Hope you English exports had a great long weekend. we have one coming up in a couple of weeks to celebrate the Queen's birthday. Do you do that too?

Domain name change

I'm not sure how to do it, but if someone could change the link on the side for me that would be great. Basically the company that had my domain name has sold it to a company who has put US$1000000 on it to buy it. I'm so annoyed! Adam didn't even get an email saying that it was coming up for renewal! So instead we have gone to a different place and registered www.koffeekat.id.au Hopefully Adam will have the site up again quickly so I can keep putting photos on there, and this registry won't resell it on me.

Besides that... well, not much happening here. It was great to catch everyone on Skype last weekend, and mum has said you'll be on there again tonight, so we'll chat then!

May Day weekend

Hello family,

Yes, it's been a while, but don't think that I've not been thinking of all of you. I've been working hard with Lab in a Lorry (leaving before 6 am, getting back at 4 or 5 pm... it's a tiring day!).

Patrick at Nottingham CastleHowever, I HAVE had time to have some adventures. Maybe not as many as Patrick has had, but it's kept me busy. :-)

A couple of weeks ago I went over to Nottingham to visit my friend Bruce (photo set here). We checked out Nottingham Castle (it's like a museum), went to the oldest pub in England and spent a day at Drayton Manor.

loops and turnsDrayton Manor was so much fun. It's a fun park with roller-coasters and rides). As you can see from this photo, some of the roller coasters had loops and corkscrews and they were so much fun!
We made the mistake of going on the water ride early in the day - so I spent much of the day with a wet behind. At least the speed of the other rides helped dry me out.. although it was a tad chilly. *grin*
I think we ended up going on almost every ride.. we even went on some rides that were designed for kiddies (heheh.. oops).

Anyway, it's taken me a long time to upload even these photos.. I'm in the process of uploading the Paris photos.. but that's another story that will be told another time. *grin*

*big hugz*

Damien and I did a bit of gardening today. We've started a vegie patch in one of the corners, a little herb garden in another area, and also planted a couple of native shrubs. It was a lot of fun! Hopefully the weather is nice again next weekend so we can work on it some more.

The vegie patch - baby spinach, chives, mixed cos lettuce, leek and peas.

The 'herb' garden - marigolds, strawberries, basil and carrots (only seeds at the moment)
