This Century!
This is my 100th published post!

I was just rifling through my draft posts, looking for something to say today, and noticed that there were 99 posts published on the blog.

Over the past 100 posts I have covered friends, family, health, recipes, work, animals & pets, frugal tips and more.

Over the next 100 posts I hope to cover more of what my readers enjoy - certainly the most popular posts have been about health, family, friends, pets and work.

I'd also love to get some more feedback from you - my readers!  Ask me anything!  I'm happy to share my experiences with you all.

Todays post was a bit cheeky, but I will post again soon!
I'm Ready
Ready to start posting again.

I know there are a few people who have been missing my posts, and I want to apologise for my absence.  It has been an interesting year, but I think I might have my head back in order enough to keep the poor old blog active.

A lot has happened since my last post over a year ago - including more than a dozen half-written posts that I couldn't bring myself to complete.

I'm still working my dream at the Mowbray Veterinary Clinic as a Vet Nurse, and loving every moment of it - through the good times and bad.  One of the bad times was in September when I was barbed by a Platypus and spent 8 days in hospital, 5 of those on a Fentanyl pump (push button, get pain relief) due to the intense pain Platypus venom inflicts on the human body, and a further 4 weeks off work, and another 4 weeks of reduced hours - more of that on another post (that's one of the longer unfinished ones).

We have added a new animal to the family - a handsome Standardbred (that's a Horse to those not in the know) named Captain, who has become almost as much a part of Broc as Gypsy is of me.

There have been camping trips, trail rides, parties and dinners.

Broc has been a dutiful house husband the past few months, keeping it all together while my work hours slowly increase.

I have struggled with some weight gain, and struggled more with trying to lose it.

We have been looking at property on and off over the last several months, and while there are a few prospects, nothing concrete yet.

That's it for now, starting work at 12 for a 7 hour shift, so I need to head off and get organised.  See you again soon!
Merry Christmas 2011!
Goodness!  I've been so busy in this mad Christmas lead-up that I've barely had time to cook yummy Christmas treats let alone post on here!!

With the big day coming tomorrow, I'd just like to take this moment to wish you all a Very Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays, or however you prefer to hear it!
