The weeks are going by so quickly now. It seems like it was only last weekend that Matt was still here and I was worrying about my first day back at school. And now I’m in week 6 and I’m starting to think about final assessments and people are fundraising for the formal and I’ve already got my exam timetable (Last exam: Monday the 15th of November… 260 days and counting) and soon I’m going to be doing the same thing, finishing off a degree at uni, married with a mortgage and three kids, worrying about private school fees and tax deductions, fixed or variable interest rates on bank loans, buying apple juice with high GI, having to weed the garden and fold the washing with menopause on the way……… aghhhh!! I hope it’s more fun when it’s actually happening. The do say it’s the little things that make life worth living. I hope that when I’m grown up I’ve learnt to find the joy in taking out the compost.
Speaking of the little things, yesterday I was walking along with my dog and there was a fish on the side of the road. I thought it was amazing… I mean, you often see dead lizards on the road, dead birds, maybe a dog or cat once in a while but it was a fish. We were up in the hills, so it’s not like it just jumped out of the sea. And from my observations there weren’t many pelicans flying around overhead that might have accidentally dropped it’s dinner. Yet, of the few people I told, there was little to no reaction whatsoever. There was a FISH on the ROAD. That’s not normal! It’s not something you see every day. Well, it’s not something I see every day anyway.
My new phone arrives on Tuesday. Woo! It’s one of those colour ones with polyphonic sound and a camera. So I’m thinking more camera availability, more crazy photo opportunities… more fun.
