It's show time

The Perth show is on this week, I'm not going for a multiple of reasons, the expense, I'm not good with large crowds and it's just not how I remember them. Even if I did go I tend to stick around the "traditional show" aspects, crafts, produce and the animals, especially the dogs, cats and goats.

Even by today's standards I think the quality of a goat has dropped. I speak from experience here. As I child I would attend about 8 local shows a year with out goats. Even back then I stayed clear of the rides and become a shrewed show bag shopper.

My all time favourite part of the show was when I got to parade a goat around for the judges to look at. All us human kids would handle a goad kid, walking it around in circles and lining up when we were told. I got a few ribbons too, but as I got older I stopped receiving them. It wasn't that I was getting worse I was just growing up and not the cutest human kid anymore.

We showed our goats for about 7 years. We did quite well for ourselves, even got Champion Buck in all of Victoria, and made the local rag. (see picture below)

To let you on a little secret, to get you goat whiter than white, wash 'em in White King. You would never see that on the tellly advert would you! "Ladies it gets stains out of your white clothes and your goat". I have kept the ribbons we won. One day I'm going to use them for a fancy dress party. I can just see me now parading around in a sash with "Champion Doe" printed on it.

We are Geelong, the greatest team of all!

Well it's the eve of another AFL (Australian Rules Football League) grand final, and I am one happy camper. My team has made the final again. We did quite well last year, I'll just pretend the other finals we made were a bad nightmare.

ENTERS "Way back Machine"
The year, I don't remember but it was Geelong v West Coast. Being more fun, I watched it in the company of my parents, it was not until half way through the second quarter that it dawned on me. My parents were barracking for the other side!! I would have disowned them that instant but I needed a lift home.

Since that dark day, I have forgiven my parents and we now have a good hearted football banter. I was such a loving daughter that I even brought him a West Coast Eagles Membership.

So for tomorrow
GO the CATS!
I predict by 23 points

Oh Father Dear

Could not resist posting this one...

My parents have just begun another camping holiday. Men being men, Dad insisted on packing the caravan himself. Here is a short list of some of the things he packed.
  • 2kg of flower and suger - Just incase mum wanted to make scones. (bit of a hint hey)
  • 3 brooms, yes that right 3 - Did I forget to mention they are only away for 6 weeks.
  • Rechargabe bateries for the camera - Only one slight problem, he forgot to pack the camera.

Just had to share

Well here I am

Hello there

After some deliberation I've decided to put my ramblings into a more formalised format. One hopes this should alleviate the clutter from my brain.

So what can you expect to read on this page! Um......well.....mmmm.....honestly I have no idea! (Yet)

I am hoping to enter Uni next year as a very very mature aged student. I'll be doing a undergrad in Librarian and Corporate Management and minoring in Japanese language. So don't be surprised if start to type in ひらがな every so often. I'll most likely to use this forum as a "Diary of a very very mature aged student" Letting you know about my highs and lows. You too can track my progress and note when I finally loose the plot and start to ramble "I'm a fish, I'm a fish"

The two loves of my life are pictured here, needless to say you will also hear allot more about these handsome boys. The gray one is named Gandalf, I got him from the cat haven about a year and a half ago. The ginger one is Sam, he was a kitten when I got him, we have had nearly on 9 wonderful years together.

Well that is all for now, thanks for popping by
