Happy Silly Season and other hilarious tales...

Hi gang, I hope everyone is enjoying their Christmas or Hanukkah, or sitting inside avoiding all the frivolities – whatever your taste!

I just thought it was time I caught up with redbubble and whoever is left to read about it ha! Plus, I haven’t waffled on for ages!

It is noticeable probably, my lack of photography or writing lately. This is due in part to the move back to my favourite home town, Yackandandah – since being here the ride hasn’t stopped. It is a good ride though, with a new challenge for me in the way of hospitality management at a local Hotel. I was initially employed to tackle the dead dining room, which I have done in part (taking up a lot of time and energy), but we are short staffed for this busy time of year and Summer holidays so my role now includes working in the bar most days of the week… well, every day of the week really hahaha, I am enjoying it but of course it leaves me a bit drained and also doesn’t leave much time for enjoying my hobbies.

I still owe Stuart Chapman a star trail photo – he has waited (as he stated on FB) “the better part of a year now”. Hehe, sorry Stu, I will get there. I am hoping that once I try it, it will work! My worry is that I will finally get a couple of hours to sit in the dark by a country dam and then I’ll muck up something and have to go and do it again – God knows how long that will take!!

Anyway, I hope all of you are happy and healthy, well those that are left – what happened to everyone on here? Is there some new fandangle site that everyone has migrated to or are we all just having a big year as well??

Cheers,
Jane

    Hasn’t the year just flown!!!? Here’s to 2012, and to getting that star trail photo! I haven’t redbubbled for ages, except to look at some artwork, no comments or anything. Lots of new faces though… dunno about any other sites, out of the loop I am!

    It has definitely been a big year for us both Eden! Yes, out of the loop here for sure, I have looked at a fair bit of artwork too but everyone seems to not appreciate the comments of “beautiful shot” or “great photo” any more and I suppose it does get a bit repetitive but sometimes it’s all one can think of to write to show admiration for lovely work. The graphic art on here is still mind blowingly amazing too, but again it’s hard to think of original comments all the time.
    My Mum’s just rung up to commission a photo from me haha – I am quite chuffed because the ’Olds" are my harshest critics apart from myself!

    All the best for 2012 and looking forward to seeing the trails shot :)

    Glad it’s still going well in Yack :)

  • I have got a couple of days off and searing heat which means very warm nights Stuart! Hopefully my days off will remain as so this time so I can actually escape out to the bush and try my star trails!! Happy New Years :o)

    So of course the first of those two nights I got drunk, lol… and the second the clouds rolled in and just hung up high, making it very humid and no stars :(. This week maybe?!?!
