The Docker's smashed Collingwood!

Friday, March 14, 2014

Yes it is football season again! Our team Fremantle Docker's and Melbourne based team Collingwood opened up the season with the first game of the season on a Friday night in Melbourne. Hubby is so funny. We record the game as hubby can't bear the pressure, not knowing if we have won. So once he knows the score he can sit and relax and watch it, If we lose he won't watch it! When our team play at home we go to the live game and then he has to deal with it. Just can't watch it on the tv if we lose. emoticon

Down in the Southern hemisphere we are just entering Autumn (Fall) and we are having cool crisp mornings and beautiful sunny days, no longer too hot. Am looking forward to the cooler weather.

Have had a very stressful last 2 weeks, as my daughter's boyfriend lost his job! Yes the same week they move into their 1st home together. So for now we are paying the rent and he has already got a job lined up, having his medical on Monday. Our daughter is also looking for full time work as 4 hours at a lunch bar just isn't enough to run a home on!

She has potential to get a job in retail management and was told by the recruiting agent that she needs to be available to take on work offered , so she has told her boss at the lunch bar that she is leaving at the end of the month.

Work is crazy with a high number of new baby's, we are booked up with New Born baby Home Visits right up till the 25th! Mostly boys as well!

Doing 3 days of training next week and the other 2 days I am rostered for the breastfeeding clinic, so worked late tonight just getting the place organised for the relief staff. I sometimes wonder if it is worth being away! emoticon

Thank you all for your supportive comments on my last blog. I have been going easy on the exercise as I have Bursitis in my Rt. hip. Gained a bit of weight but it seems to be easing off now so hoping to get back into more exercise and get rid of this extra roll that has re-appeared. emoticon

Hope you all have a wonderful weekend. emoticon emoticon

    Hi Libby,
    THere is certainly plenty going on in your world! Wishing your daughter and her partner all the best in the job hunt and that all goes well in getting jobs they are happy with as well as keeping a roof over their heads. Sorry to hear about the bursitis; I hope that heals up and you are back to full strength soon. It sounds like you are very much on the go work-wise, so I am sure that is resulting in a certain amount of exercise anyway! Take care and have a good weekend and week!
    Big hugs, Nattacia

    Sorry to hear about the bursitis Libby. You are so busy
    with work as well. You can lose the extra weight.
    That is so funny about your hubby not watching the game
    if your team loses. I am also enjoying the cooler mornings.
    It is such a relief not to have that humidity any more.
    I hope your daughter's boyfriend get the job when he goes
    for the interview. Life can be hard sometimes, but we have to
    just get on the best we can. So glad your team won!
    Have a great weekend. emoticon

    Yikes! Losing his job as they first move. What a bad turn of luck. I guess they are so lucky to have you and your husband to cover for them.

    It's amazing how the weather is changing here too. The snow is melting and the sun is up more. Finally, I can drive after 5:00 pm in the light.

    Have a good weekend. Hope things go well for you.

    Hugs.
