Hello everyone....





I has been fairly rainy for the past couple days so we spent a lazy day around the house today.....because when it rains here it pours...or so it seems to me. I don't think I have ever seen it rain this hard for such a long period of time in my life.... anyways enough about the rain.

The sunset...




The past couple weeks I have been hanging around with the Toddys and tagging along when thay go places. On the weekend all my plans with the young kids got canceled so I spend a relaxing (but slightly cold and windy) saturday evening on the beach fishing with the Toddys. We caught a couple little fish, one for each the kids, but nothing that we could keep. I think it was the thursday before that when I went shopping with Jess and her brother at the Plaza. That mall is huge....or more confusing then huge I guess. There is a river running through the middle of it and some of the stores are on the outside and some of it is inside.






On monday we finally got the car up and running. So at the moment I am driving a little ford laser hatch....I will get a picture of it to show you all eventually. That day I went for a little drive by myself for the first time. I drove to the Plaza to go pick up a wireless router. I only got lost once so that was good. With all the round abouts it's hard to firgure out which way you are supposed to go out of them...unless you know road names. Tuesday afternoon I drove to Brissy which was fun. I had a bit of a laugh when I went through the tolls though. You have four choices when you go through the tolls here. There is one where you can swip a card, one where it takes a picture or something of a little thing you have hanging in your car, one you see a person and one where you have exact change. I took the exact change because it is only 2.60 though when I got up to it I couldn't figure out where to put the money. I ended up watching the guy on a motorcycle beside be and you have to throw (literally as you can't get close enough to touch it) your money in to a half basket thing and then the gate goes up. On the way home I lost 2 dollars (don't say toonie or they will look at you weird) because I threw it took hard and it bounced out. I stayed at the morrison's while I was there. Tyler and his brother Eric took me rock climbing that night which I am STILL a bit sore from. Though a lot better then yesterday that's for sure! Again I only got lost once driving to Brissy and it was because of a round about......





Wednesday night was a driving experience I won't forget anytime soon. Justin and Pru were already at meeting since we go to Pru parents and they had supper up there with some family. So I had to find my way there in the dark. Well I honestly can't say how I got turned around so bad but I did make it there before meeting started (though only because I left so early). The first mistake I made was going around a round about. It was a two lane one and I realized to late so I got stuck in the outside lane which means I had to exit right away or risk causing an accident with someone in the inside lane. Well I ended up heading towards Brissy...which I didn't want to do. Anyways to say the least it is hard to find your way on a dark and rainy night.....






Yesterday which would be........sorry have to think about this....thursday I went over to Jess' house. She took me out for lunch and we got little meat pie's at coolum beach. They were very good if I say so myself. We did a little bit of shopping in a few of the stores there. Then we hung out at her house all afternoon. We were going to go to the beach but.......it was pouring rain. It seems to really like doing that at the moment....


Well that is all for now!!!
