Taken from Julia...

Accent: Well to me I don't have one, but on the phone I am mistaken for my Mum who has an English accent. When I was in the US everyone I met begged me to talk because they thought it was hilarious to hear an aussie accent and then my Dad is Scottish - so who knows????

Booze: Nope not very often - though if I was to it would be a glass of white wine or an exotic cocktail as long as it has watermelon in it.


Dog or Cat: definitely dog and I mean a real dog - no yippy yappy ones.

Essential Electronics: Computer and coffee machine

Favorite Perfume: Happy by Clinique and Rockin Rio by Escarda

Gold or Silver: Silver, though I love Rose Gold.

Hometown: Karratha, Western Australia

Insomnia: Hell Yes too much floating around in this head of mine.

Job Title: Maintenance/Purchasing Clerk.

Kids: sigh no, but I have a great niece and nephew to play with so it is all good.

Living arrangements: Live in a house with my whole immediate family currently, but thinking about doing something very grown up and building my own home.

Most admirable traits: I don't know - I hope that people feel I am trustworthy, empathic, kind and loyal.

Number of sexual partners: Let's not go there.

Overnight hospital stays: Way too many.

Phobias: Low heights, rodents, and being alone for the rest of my life.

Quote: "In the attitude of silence the soul finds the path in a clearer light, and what is elusive and deceptive resolves itself into crystal clearness. Our life is a long and arduous quest after truth" ~ Mahatma Gandhi

Religion: I have my own beliefs that I follow and I respect other peoples right to follow their own faiths.

Siblings: One sister.

Time I wake up: 5.30am weekdays and 7.00am weekends or when my niece comes and bonks me on the head with her cereal bowl demanding breakfast.

Unusual talent or skill: No talents or skills.

Vegetables I love: broccoli.

Worst habit: Impatience and self doubt

X-rays: Too many.

Yummy foods I make: Thai curries and stir-fry's.

Missing In Action

I have been MIA...My nephew had his birthday party on 23 April and I got badly sunburnt/windburnt. I was not a well person for about 72 hours and now I am shedding a few layers of skin...boy the aussie sun is a killer and I had the cream etc on and was in the shade but was not wearing appropriate clothing and that was that.....

Not much happening in my life - it is very boring and predictable and needs to change, but I have no idea where to start. I am really finding it hard to go out and meet new people, I just have no idea how to go about it in a country town. I was asking a few people at work and they looked at me like I had grown horns so I don't know how things are going to work out here and how to overcome my shyness and get a boost in self confidence.....

I though that losing weight would help and so far have lost just over 30kgs (I have put a ticker thing at the bottom of this blog to keep track - more of a thing to keep me motivated) but that hasn't boosted my self confidence at all, just means I have to keep going out to buy new clothes :-)

I don't know, may be coming up here was not the best idea I have ever had.

Happy Birthday Dad 28/04/2006

I know that the last few months have been very difficult for you and I just want you to know that when somebody has given so much of himself through the years, it is hard to find a way to say thanks. But for all the times you took the time and for all the wonderful memories you have given our family --- Thanks Dad.

You'll Always Be Loved Very Much.

Happy Birthday!

Love Always
