Our Esperance Weekend

Stu, Kelly, Justin, Melissa G, Meran, Ben and Becky, Phill and I set off in 3 cars from Kalgoorlie BP Truckstop at about 4:30 thanks to Stu's guineas pigs (you had to be there) and drove for 4 hours in the rain.

We stayed at Yot Spot apartments 3 and 4 on the Esplanade, which were really lovely apartments. After the early risers walked up to the jetty, we headed off to Cape Le Grand in the morning, and after climbing the rocks at Hellfire bay thankfully the sun came out and we were able to enjoy swimming (well Ben Phill and I) at Lucky Bay. We got home in time to see most of the Grand Final too. Games, a walk around town and more games, another trip to Hellfire bay for swimming (6 fish!) and another quick dip rounded off the weekend for us. We had dinner at Gibson Soak on Saturday night and celebrated Stu's impending birthday with a yummy cake. We all headed off to Kal on Monday morning.

A happy week

We've been blessed to have Lauren stay for the weekend, well she got in on Friday arvo and left Wednesday morning.
I've basically lifted this from Lauren's blog, apologies for the plagiarism! Plus added a few details :)
We have done some cooking (pasties and choc melting moments), scrapping (Dad's pressie and Lauren's ball) and piano playing. We had a games night on Friday night and then one of their friends' 4-year-old had a birthday party Saturday. After church we went to a park with some of their friends. I saw emus, cockatoos, kangaroos and peacocks.
I've made a couple of pages today
Now it's time to get back to marking assignments!

As some of you you would know I love fonts. There's just something about getting the right one to express a feeling for a page, letter or document.

I've been invited to create layouts using fonts from Studio Fontologie.

Although this photo is a few weeks old now, we are pleased to repot that our garden is growing, the shutdown at the Smelter is over and life is returning to normal. We enjoyed having Phill's parents in town at the start of the month and Lauren is coming to Kal at the end of this week. The weather is warming up - after the obligatory cold snap for Race Round (windy too, to blow dresses and hats around).

I've been helping out with the programming of the services at Kalgoorlie Baptist for the last few months and on Sunday sung at the Kalgoorlie Town Hall Centenary Celebration Service (about 350 people came). I'm still tutoring at ECU, still playing piano and singing at church, and still working on our curtains!

After Phill working such long hours for the last couple of months with the shutdown we are looking forward to our weekend away with homegroup in Esperance for the Queen's Birthday long weekend. We celebrate Ben and Becky Noordink's birthday in style on Sunday with a great party - and as usual we are busy with lots of work around the house. The latest photos are on the Picasa site. Leave me a comment if you want the address (my blog is public now...).

Well that's all for now - hope you are doing well :)

Lefties Rule!

Ok, so I'm left handed, but did you know that I descend from the famous clan of left-handers??
There's an interesting article here: Are you Kerr-handed?
kerrancient1Theories on Left-handedness and Laterality
For example, the Kerr clan of Scotland is infamous for their predisposition towards left-handedness. 3 This feature, known by the Kerr as being "Corry Fisted" or "Kerr-Handed" can be understood as a culturally reinforced trait that was supposed to aid these Scottish warriors in methods of warfare. Due to their common gene pool, however, this trait can also be understood a genetic characteristic of the Kerr clan.
