This is my cat, Mary. I thought I would add a post about her, as she's rather old and I know she don't have many years to go. She turned 15 last november, and shes a tortoiseshell and white breed. I love the way she purrs while I scratch her neck, yet I don't like the way she over-enjoyes me scratching her and starts drooling down my arm. All the same, I love her to bits.
I dropped my parents off at Sydney airport no less than a few hours ago. Right this second, they are getting ready to fly off to Greece. They wont be back for over 3 months, and I miss them terribly already. I wont be able to call mum during the day for no reason at all, I wont be able to see dad on the weekends.... (sad face). I didn't think I would miss them that much, after all, I've moved out and don't see them every day as it is. But knowing that I can't see them for over 3 months ... well it makes me pretty sad.
Since finishing university and becoming a primary school teacher, I feel that the teaching profession is a lot more demanding than I once thought. Gone are the days where kids wanted to come to school, not just to see their friends but moreso because they enjoyed learning. While the classrooms of yesteryears did not have the technical advances of todays, the kids where far better behaved, spoke proper english and used words that most adults today don't even know the meaning of. What happened? What changed? How do I teach a child who does not want to learn, does not respect authority, and has no concept or understanding of the importance of an education.
Considering how cold it is right this second, you would think it would be the middle of winter.... yet we are not even in the middle of autumn. And while it sounds like I am complaining, the truth is I'm not. Of all the seasons, I think I love winter the most. It's that time of year when you can snuggle up on the lounge with someone special, wear cute thick bed socks and fluffy scarves, and sip on hot chocolate while watching episode after episode of your favourite t.v series....
I'm considering having my hair out for my wedding, I was thinking of wearing a headband instead of a hairclip or facinator. I love headbands and think a headband would go well with soft curls. What do you think?
I'm getting married in only 137 days. My gosh! I am so totally excited, I could dedicate an entire blog to how I am feeling, but i don't want to bore you! I do have a dilema though (one of many actually). . . . regarding what sort of veil to wear. I am getting married in a church so it was suggested to me that a traditional tulle veil is best. Yet up until recently I really did have my heart set on a vintage birdcage veil. They are so classic and chick... and being a lover of all things vintage I thought it was the way to go. I did try a few on, but I just don't know.... it doesnt seem right. If I do end up wearing a birdcage veil then Scott won't be able to lift the veil off my face before we kiss for the first time as man and wife, nor will we be able to have some of the beautiful photos which can be taken only with a tulle veil.... (see below for a few pics I love). So you see.... I have a bit of a dilema... At the moment I am leaning towards wearing a tulle veil, but of course I may change my mind till then!
