the last couple of days....

.... have been busy with one thing and another. I have been scrapping but I can't show it at all. Not even sneaks....sigh. I've got my pics organised for the Camera Club meeting on Monday night next week, I've started tweaking the panda shots. I'm a bit disappointed with them as that day was chilly so they were mostly inside their glassed in sound proofed enclosures. Wang Wang (the male) ambled out for very quick stroll and went back in. Funi had just gone inside when we got there. Might have something to do with the really large primary school group that left just before we got there. (could you imagine the noise??!!)

I've been prepping for my talk to the photography class which I did this morning. I was so relieved to know one of my besties son would be there. A familiar face. I think it went really well. I gave them my bio (which ended up taking most of the lesson) showed them one my clients' canvas and a photo book that was very kindly lent to me as examples and went thru a quick slide show of my images. I've been asked to come back next term so it must have all come across ok. Next time I'll do it all a bit differently so we can see more shots and hear less talk ;o)

Had a bit of a giggle last night. I helped out with the mini minis training. Basically mini minis is the young boys who are at a bit of a loose end while their older brothers are training in minis and colts and sisters are at Netball training. Some of those little chaps can really boot the ball. There was only one Dad there last night so I help out, which means I mostly ran after all the wayward footies. ;op

Annie has an extra gym training tonight to brush up her routines so she and the other girls who competed in Lincoln can show their gym group the different apparatus and the set routine on them. We have a number of kids really keen to go to Pirie for the comp coming up there but their parents aren't sure and don't know what to expect before they commit. So we thought we'd have the girl and the young chap demo their stuff. It will on next Tuesday at the Gym Hall between the first and second group taking the floor.

Been doing other stuff but it's far too boring to put here.......

my son said you did okay, and didnt seem too nervous [thats teen boy talk,which probably translates to you did brilliantly and were amazingly confident]!

he was such a gentleman Mary. He helped to carry all my stuff downstairs after the class. Even my hand bag. I offered to carry but nup, he's tuff and carries the stuff. ;o)

Hey Paige. hope to post a few tonight. just finishing the final touches on a lo first. how did the exam go?

Janice. same back at ya. We're all busy with whatever we choose, and we choose to be as busy as we want to be. Thanks for the door, I've been in there a lot the last couple of weeks. The proof reading was a confidence booster, esp the little laughs while you read it. ;o)
