Charlie's Ramblings (37) Really do I have to?


Howdy all.

It's been another week at the factory as my Dad would say.  It seems like so much is going on but at the same time, it's not all that interesting.  Mum and I had the Glamour Photos done that I had bought for her for Christmas.  I didn't really want to get it done but when I got a second ticket free, Mum talked me into going in the shots with her.  To say I was disappointed with the professionalism was an understatement.  The place they had hired to do this was down an alley and it was raining so it was damp and wet.  And for anyone that doesn't know, this particular Photography company is like a travelling circus, going places and getting bookings etc etc.. but without the enormous tent, and elephants lol.
So that was a let down.  We stepped into the door to be greeted by a heap of people no more than two metres from the door lined up against a curtain separating those who were getting make overs and waiting to see their photos, from the actual photography taking place.  So that was a no no.  
We got our hair and make up done.  The girls were lovely and the makeup was awesome, but I'm telling you they weren't very flash with the hair and I could have done mine myself and it would have looked better.  But in saying that, my hair is hard to tame.  So... she did try.
Then we had the photos and the guy had trouble explaining poses, and we only got to do a few photos with the clothes we had on.  We brought in three sets as the letter asked us to do.  There wasn't even a change area.  What The?
But anyway apart from missing out on the complimentary wine also the photos turned out fairly good.  And did I say how hard it was to pick them? LOL 
At the end of it we paid just under $500 for three copies of photos and a disk including all the shots that were taken.  So I can't complain.  I suppose.
And here is the photo of us after the photoshoot.
I'm on the Left !
I haven't forgotten about Once Upon A Time but since the beginning of this year has been very hectic I've decided to move it to a few months down the track.  I need some more thinking time to get this stuff right without fumbling like last year.  Hope you all understand!

Enjoy

Charlie's Ramblings (36) Photos etc


So I'm sitting here watching the three Jurassic Parks.  Yep that's right.  It's a marathon of them on Seven Mate.  Funny.. because it's been so long since I've seen the movie that I've been so caught up with it that I haven't done any assignment work or writing that I'd planned to do tonight.  But then again, how many times is this on tv?!  
I think I've found a new tv show too.  Revenge.  It's looking good the first part that I've seen.

Anyways here are some photos I took after playing around with the settings on the camera.






That's all for now !

Charlie's Ramblings (35) Am I really going back to work?


Yes.  My holidays have come to an end, and come Monday 16th I'll be blessing work with my presence once again.  The slight hiccup with me not winning the lotto won't get me down.  I'll just have to try again next time LOL.  It's probably a good thing I'm going back, since the money tree I tried to plant out the back has died, and so has the savings account.  So I'll be happy to be making money again.

My little boy will be going to kindy this year.  Toilet training is still a struggle and some days he's just not even trying.  We'll work things out soon enough though.

I never managed to get any more than one assignment completed over the holidays.  I'm disappointed but at least on the bright side, the one I did complete was in two weeks early.  I'll just have to stick out the other two and try and get them finished as soon as I can.  Then I'm a free agent. Well... almost lol.

Writing and photography is at an all time low.  BUT I did read Clockwork Angel and Clockwork Prince by Cassandra Clare (LOVE IT), The Hunger Games, Catching Fire and Mockingjay by Suzanne Collins (SUPER LOVED IT) so I'm making some progress on my own TBR pile.  Most importantly will have to work on that review pile.  One thing at a time though.

Fingers crossed I make some progress on my own writing.  It would be nice once I finished assignments, that I could go back and get more focused.

Charlie's Ramblings (34) Fernvale Farm


Here are a few pictures of yesterday's outing to Fernvale Farm.  Alot of the motorbike ones are already on my Facebook page so I didn't see the point of adding them again on here!





















There were millions of these little buggers everywhere.  I can see there is going to be a massive Cane toad prob this year.



















Went through a heap of these on the bike.  Kinda hurts too lol.  I was pulling the prickles out of my jeans when we got back to the retreat.













Check out the ears on this cow LOL 


Some of these pics were modified on the camera or cropped on here.  Click on them for a bigger pic.

Enjoy!
