We had power cut at work on Friday, about 3.30 so we all got knock off early. It was pretty unbearable cos the coolers don't work very well at all. 45 that day!
While we have all been suffering its nothing compared to the firefighters fighting big fires down Gippsland way. I'm hoping this wind works with them and doesn't fan the flames and send it off in new directions.
I bought these lovely little finds at a market last week. I was picking all these rusty, colored Chinese coins when hubby came up and proudly announced that he would buff them up for me!!
Think he was a bit put out by my answer.....
Our town is quite rich in Chinese history from when they came over to make their fortunes in the gold rush days.
See these... they are milk tokens. I had never seen them and asked the seller what they were about. He said that in my grandmothers day, when they put money out under the empties for the milkman [horse and cart] , it would get stolen. So they had milk tokens instead.
Apparently thieves in those days weren't very lateral because they didn't steal them...... ;)
I have been doing some odd bits and pieces but cant show yet.
My work roster has also increased by 3hrs a week and so this means i have lost my day off to play!:( worse still its a 12-3 shift, what a waste of a day!] I am trying very hard to be positive and grateful seeing as how people all over the world are losing their jobs but i would have been happy to give it to someone who really needed the hours.
Unfortunately my boss did not see it that way!
The other sad news is that "feral beryl" [aka lulu the whippet pup] has chewed through the lead on my sewing machine which i had just got back from the repair guy!!
But to finish on a bright note hubby and i celebrated 20yrs of marriage this week and in typical hubby fashion presented me with choccies and flowers a day early cos he couldn't remember the date. At least he was early!!!
