back again

Thanks to everyone who assures me the blog colours are fine. I just kind of wondered because sometimes I'll be on another blog or website which has, say, pale pink type on a white background and wonder why the person who it belongs to cannot see that it is impossible to read.
Just wanted to check that I wasn't one of those people. And you tell me I'm not. So, good.

OK, the tag game, here goes.............. I could ramble on a bit here, so feel free to tune out

A: The rules of the game are posted at the beginning.

B: Each player answers the questions about themselves.

C: At the end of the post, the player then tags 3 people and posts their names, then goes to their blogs and leaves them a comment, letting them know that they have been tagged and asking them to read your blog.

10 Years Ago: I was in my final year at Uni (Bachelor of Nursing) and dating a complete tool. I was 24.

Things on my to-do list today: Well it's nearly my bedtime right now, so I'll give you my to-do list for tomorrow

Lots of work around the house, decluttering and preparing the house for sale. LOTS. OF .WORK.
Must remember to eat while doing this, and feed my kids also.
Catch up with friends going through from Mackay, as well as sister and brother-in-law.
Don't get narky with my partner when he comes home from work narky because he has worked a 12 hour day in way too hot heat.
If I can do this stuff tomorrow, it will be a good day.

What would I do if I suddenly became a billionaire

I would pay back my parents all the little bits of money they have loaned me over the years, and send them on a dam good holiday. It would probably be pointless to actually give them a huge chunk of money because I don't think they would change the way they live at all. They would just want to give it back to me ;)

I would set my sisters up in lovely houses, wherever they wished.

Put money aside for my kids futures, whatever that holds.

I would travel with my family, first to Ireland which is where my partner would love to go.

I would go to New York, definitely, it facinates me, I would like to go there before I die.

I would donate to charity, largely the Salvation Army, because I think they are great. Also I would seek out some smaller charities which do not receive a lot of donations.

I would fly to the U.S. for a workshop with Audrey Woulard because she is fabulous, I love her.

I would buy myself some new lenses for my camera, also another camera body.

I also would employ a personal tutor to teach me all I need to now about Photoshop CS3.

OK, better stop here as I'm spending all this money on myself and really not being very generous at all.

3 of my bad habits

I can be lazy sometimes (like wake up in the middle of the night needing to go to the loo, but 'holding it' 'cause I just couldn't be bothered getting out of bed) But not as lazy as the guy on 'The Biggest Loser' who would actually eat the cupcake wrapper rather than get up and put it in the bin,LMAO

Sometimes can be very indecisive (case in point: it took me a while to decide if I should put this point in or not because; well am I really indecisive or not, I'm not sure?!!)

I can hold a grudge. In some cases possibly forever.

Ok, I'm adding an extra one because I have so many bad habits; I am easily distracted/sidetracked.
And if procrastination was an event in the Olympics, I would win a gold medal.

3 places I have lived


5 jobs that I have had

check out chick at Coles straight out of school while I was waiting for my nursing course to start

*the rest of my jobs are all nursing so I will just have to say different places I have worked (which is a lot)*

as an Enrolled Nurse at the Halwyn Centre is Brisbane (a home for handicapped children)

RN in Cairns

RN on Mornington Island

RN, Community Nurse is Tambo

5 things most people don't know about me

my family know this one I'm pretty sure, and my sister will probably laugh her ass off when she reads this

I hate it when other people do my dishes, I often hate the way other people will stack a dish dryer, I hate dish washers. on the occassions when my partner does the dishes I will sneak in and re-stack the dish rack the way I believe it should be. Now you may be laughing but stacking of the dish drainer is very important if you do not physically dry the dishes (which I don't), because it needcs to be stacked right in order for everything to be able to dry

Despite what you might think after reading about my anal tendencies over the dishes, I'm a very messy person by nature.

Cannot stand having my feet or legs touched. Not keen on massages AT ALL.

Lizards scare the crap out of me.

I secretly dream of becoming a fabulous photographer (even if only for my own family)

Now I tag Sally, Tash, and Rachael

And Tash probably won't do it because now that I'm thinking about tagging it's coming back to me that she tagged me once and I didn't do it.
And I promise you Tash that it was just my crap memory that saw me not do it. I am so hopeless.

Hi Brenda. Got your tag. I'm not worried about you not doing the tag. I can't remember :)

I have been tagged with this one already and haven't done it. I think this is a big hint I should hehe :)

Brenda, your answers just cracked me up. I hear you though on the dish drainer thing, I have a dish washer but I hate the way Owen stacks it.
I didn't even know that you were a nurse so that was very interesting to hear and I too secretly dream of being a photographer but I'm too scared.
Thanks for doing my tag :-}
