The job hunting is still going on, not with much luck but I am trying to keep positive. I am thinking of going back to do office work again as my typing skills and spelling are still up to date. I think I type around 88 wpm if I am in a hurry so it is still good. Paul's work has slowed right down so he is thinking of going over to South Australia to get a job with a mining company. We will see how he goes, hopefully he can get a foot in the door. I can handle him being away for 3 weeks out of 4 every month, well I will see how I go.
The sadness continues around here with us attending another funeral of Paul's friend's father who he grew up with as a teenager. Quite sad and it makes you realise that a lot of friends you just dont see enough on a regular basis but really should make the time too. I am starting to think that 2012 is a year where things in the past are slowly disappearing.
My sister had to take her 13 year old cat to the vet's yesterday to have him put to sleep. I went with her to keep her company and it was very sad. He had been bitten by a snake last year, and sadly I think it affected his kidneys. He lost so much weight and wasnt eating or moving much. The vet clinic was absolutely lovely trying to save him for 3 days but his numbers didnt come down low enough which meant that he only had a couple of days left. He will be sorely missed by my sister as he was her companion, and I think I shall have to get her another kitty later on as she lives by herself and gets rather lonely at times. You will be sorely missed Lionel xxx
So that is about it, the good and the sad ... seems to be a common theme lately around here but we still go on dont we. Life is meant to have its ups and downs and I am sure there are many people out there going through similar situations. I am going to sit down and drink my hot milo and try some more knitting on my little nephew's jacket which is coming along beautifully! See you all later on.
