I've just completed catching up
with this website, making sure that I've updated it with the
story of my Queenstown trip and adding photos as well.

The latest news is that it's been confirmed - I have had my
contract extended for another month at work, so I'm pretty happy
about that. I'm hoping they'll love me so much that
they'll extend it forever... or take me on permanently.
Michelle and I have been having a few rough spots lately, mainly
with communication problems, but we're sorting that out.
We're too important to each other to let go so easily...
I'm pretty confident that things are just going to get better
and better, especially since it's so obvious to both her and I
that we are completely committed to each other, and to making
things work between us.
I'm going to Canberra this coming weekend! I'm REALLY
looking forward to that. I'll be catching up with all my
friends over there, who I haven't seen for 3 months now.
Estera's getting married on the Saturday 16th, and that's the
main reason I'll be going over. The second reason is to
see my friends. I'm catching up with Kath on Saturday
morning, and having lunch with everyone else on Sunday. On
the Monday morning I'll be flying back to Wellington.
One of my managers at work has lent me his camera to play
with. It's a Canon, and it's sort of like mine but it's
more modern. It's got a lot of automatic features which I
think would come in handy. I've had it valued yesterday at
around $500 (it's about 10 years old). I'm going to get
mine valued as well, and if the prices are around the same, I'll
sell mine and buy his. However, if his is more expensive
than mine is worth, then I'll just stick with mine. A
friend of mine recommended that I get into photography
professionally (because he thought my photos were fantastic),
and I've been inspired by that. That's why I've been
looking at upgrading my camera. What do the rest of you
think? Based on my photos, do you think I should take it
up professionally? Opinions
Michelle and I are going to see a movie this afternoon.
It's called "Maybe Baby", and it's about having
babies. Scary... <smile>
Until next time...
