Skywatch Friday – a fun Sunday afternoon at McMahon’s Point

October 23, 2009

MissN and I attended a Women’s Event at my church back in March where the men cooked for us gals and shared their recipes.  MissN has been making Simon’s Thai red curry ever since, both with fish and with chicken!  The session finished at 4 and we had 2 hours till evening service at 6 and so decided to go down to McMahon’s Point (I used to catch the ferry to and from McMahon’s Point to Drummoyne when I worked in North Sydney many years ago) and chill. We had fun!

I love how the clouds in this photo dominate both the bridge and the Opera House! Spot the train crossing the bridge!  We watched the ferries

MissN decided to act like a 3 year old and had fun rolling on the grass.

and behaving like a kid.  She does that well.

She isn’t quite grown up yet.  But then neither is her mum.

I think we will always have fun together.

Tagged – my first meme

April 26, 2008

and I was tagged by Brian

Here’s how this one works…
1. The rules are posted at the beginning.
2. Each player answers the questions about themselves.
3. At the end of the post, the player then tags 5 people and posts their names, then goes to their blogs and leaves a comment, letting them know they’ve been tagged and ask them to read your blog.

What I was doing 10 years ago:

I was a full time mum, having resigned from my part-time position in university administration.  (I’m still a full time mum!)  My mom had recently visited from South Africa (her second and last visit) and Miss N was in preschool two days a week.  We were yet to get a computer at home…  Was there life before being “connected”?

Five things on my to do list for today (well, tomorrow – it’s almost 11pm):

  1. long hot bath (soccer for Miss N is cancelled – grounds still too wet)
  2. get organised (or get Miss N organised) for first day of term 2 on Monday 
  3. see Moliere (I have free tickets)
  4. Prepare for Significant Woman meeting on Mon night ( a couple of chapters to prepare)
  5. Church at 6pm… Praise and Worship Night (I’m taking a friend)

Things I would do if I were a billionaire:

  1. Visit my family in South Africa.
  2. Visit the children we sponsor in Africa (World Vision) and sponsor 1000 more
  3. Buy C a yacht
  4. Buy land on the south coast of NSW and set up a Christian holiday camp for kids from troubled homes

Three of my bad habits:

  1. Procrastination
  2. Being slow to answer emails and return calls (procrastination?)
  3. Biting my nails

Five places I have lived:

  1. Risidale, Johannesburg, South Africa
  2. Fairvale, Johannesburg, South Africa
  3. Russell Lea, Sydney, Australia
  4. Summer Hill, Sydney, Australia
  5. Breakfast Point, Sydney, Australia

Five jobs I have had:

  1. High school teacher (English and history)
  2. Administrative assistant (at 2 different universities)
  3. University Admissions Officer
  4. Research Grants Officer
  5. Church Secretary
