Well everyone while I’ve been not blogging a fair bit has happened…
- I completed my 2nd Masters degree…4 long years of doing 2 subjects a semester is over…now I was planning on having a break and not studying for a fair while, if at all…except I have to do studies in Religion this year.
- I’ve still been losing weight…I’ve lost over 43kg (over 95lbs) since the start of 2015…so in 13 months!!! Oh and before you ask I will put a photo up…later though, this is a relatively quick post before going to bed.
- I happened to run into Novak Djokovic whilst walking down a laneway in Melbourne a couple of days before the Australian Open started!!! Yes I definitely got a photo of him.
- I went to the filming of Masterchef and saw Nigella and then went to see her talk at a different event.
- I decided rather randomly to buy a new car.
- I’ve had my first ever sporting injury as part of the whole losing weight thing…which has been the world’s most annoying injury!!!

Sorry it’s been quiet on here for a few weeks…things have been rather hectic with work and uni.
Then thankfully the last two weeks have been HOLIDAYS!!! The first week I did a bit of a road trip, 2870km in fact from Country Town 2.0, to Brisbane and up to the Sunshine Coast for dinner one night. Then down to Coffs Harbour via a few random places along the way, then on to Newcastle via a few more random places and then back to Country Town 2.0 via a few small towns.
The past 10 days have been 10 glorious days relaxing at home, going out for breakfast, lunch or coffee at the pub, going to the rodeo, watching the AFL Grand Final and somehow remaining slightly calm with Hawthorn’s amazing win and watching last night’s thrilling NRL Grand Final.
Tomorrow is back to work…but here’s some holiday snaps for you to enjoy.

Mammoth Caves in the Margaret River region of Western Australia.
Lesson learnt that day was never go deep into a cave when you have two ear infections…holy heck that was a painful experience!!!

I took this photo yesterday morning when I was in Dubbo…it was a freezing cold morning. It got down to -3.7 degrees celsius at about 7am, but the clear blue sky made the world a lot more deceptive.

Day 101 – this smells so good. I went to a cooking demonstration by Dan Hong while I was in Sydney and he made his prawn toast and oh my god it smelled amazing.
Day 102 – something green…a little green roof cabin on the Pyrmont Bridge in Sydney.
Day 103 – paper…my plane ticket for the flight back from Sydney to Dubbo.
Day 104 – up…Taken somewhere above Sydney from the plane.
Day 105 – dinner…given I was in the process of moving I bought pizza.
Day 106 – where I work. Well this isn’t my usual work location. But it was the location of the day…moving boxes in my car.
Day 107 – ordinary moment. Yes it is just a washing machine, but it’s the first one that I’ve owned and it was delivered on Friday and I got it into the house on my own and took the plastic off it and set it all up on my own, which was rather impressive.
Day 108 – fluffy…a drink I got in New York which had fairy floss in the taller glass and then you had to pour the drink over it.
Day 109 – together…bacon and eggs go perfectly together with Sunday morning breakfast after church.
