Imi's 21st

HI everyone, just thought I'd add a photo of Imi (and me and Hooch) This is at my 21st last year. Happy birthday to everyone who has birthdays in December! Is there a family thing? I will try to come if someone tells me when and where!

On another note. I got the position at Windy Hill as a coach , so watch out Ruth! You better work hard and stay in the A team otherwise you'll have me as a coach!

love Mel

Imogen is turning 21!

In celebration of this momentous occasion, I thought I'd post this cutie-wootie picture of her as a little tacker. Pa, do you remember when she was this small and cute?

See you at the December birthdays family gathering. Say hi to Nana.

I worked it out!!!

Hi Pa and Everyone,
Ruthie showed me how to do this so thats cool hey. Long time no see for all of you! (well except Ruth and Julie coz I saw them last night!) Here is a quick update on me...I have finished uni and now only have one year to go before I can get a real job! So thats nice. So Now I am just working as hard as possible so I don't have to work so much next year. Just swim teaching/Duty Managing and reception.
I saw Ruth play netball last night as I might be coaching the under 17's B grade team for windy hill. I am a bit excited about that. They won and it was exciting, very good team to watch (and maybe coach!)
So thats about it really, I am doing teaching rounds next year at Bacchus Marsh Grammar which will be cool as they are doing the rock estedford in both Junior and senior school. Hopefully I'll learn a bit there. And this weekend I am going to Gippsland for Jarrad's Grandpa's 70th. Should be a busy but nice weekend.
ok take care,
luv Melanie

Our Day At The Races

Dear everyone, heres a photo of Gen & me all ready for our day at the races.
Hooch its nice to know that you have finally finished your thesis thingo, but im a bit disappointed because now those chats on msn may not be so often.
Well on saturday mum, dad, phoebe, hughey, paddy and i all went to Stakes day at flemington. I walked around with friends, Mum & Phoebe hung out with friends from school, Hughey walked around with his girlie friend and paddy & Dad put bets on against eachother. No one won much money, and I lost $5 on some horse my friend told me to put money on, so our day was not as successful in terms of winning as we may have hoped!!
well hopefully we can all catch up soon
love Struth

Hi there Oramses

Hello :)

So... this past week I've landed a new job. I'll be working in the Rialto South Tower with a heap of people from the past! (Sean, Simon, Dan, Owen and Mark who I've worked/lived/hung out with).

The people, the computers, the software and the contract are all very good :) I'm quite excited, and can't wait to start!

Also, I just won a small competition for designing an icon for a software library. I should be getting my prize (2 books) mailed to me sometime soon.

The past couple of weeks has involved traveling to Sydney twice, having our house full of Tracey's relatives and celebrating Tracey's 30th. Yep.. she's getting old :)

The house is quiet now... which I like. It's good coming home from a day at the office and not having to listen to Tracey and her sisters singing classics from The Sound Of Music.

I hope you are all well.

Dear Pa,

Hi Pa.

It feels like I haven't seen you in ages. But all that will change after this week because my thesis is due on Friday! I won't be a student any more.... that's a strange thought. I'm not sure how I'll fell about it until it happens. I get my results in mid december.

Apart from putting the final touches on my thesis, I haven't been up to much. One of the things I have been doing is rehearsing for our Choir Xmas Concert (since working in an Xmas shop, I have developed the habit of saying Xmas, not Christmas). We are performing on 8th December, but I'm not sure where. Hopefully they'll make a CD of it.

Anyway, I'd better get back to study. I hope things are going well with you. Say 'hi' to Nana from me. I'll be coming to visit some time next week (I'll let you know when after I've got my work roster).
