A very happy and blessed Christmas

It's the year end. Thank you very much to all readers of this blog. I'm always touched you bother to comment. Have a merry christmas and a very happy new year 2008. I'll be away from blogging for a week. That's right heard right. 7 glorious days away from work to be spent in total self indulgence. Now that's the way to wrap up...what was /is a glorious year 2007. Happy holidays!!!

This is soooo true

I found this in the music room. Whoever found it..and put it there is a sound man.

I'm back to reading books

There was a temporary deviation from reading for a while now. There after to be known as the "dark ages". The picture is of the library of Sancta Sophia college, the place I stayed in in Sydney. The college grounds were lovely reminded me of Oxford. ( Not that I'm incredibly familiar with oxford...I went there ONCE and had a quick walk-a-bout absorbing the atmosphere marginally). The more accurate reason why I say it reminded me of Oxford is...because it looked very much like the oxford depicted in them very English movies we see on AsTRO.
Sancta Sophia was founded in 1925. ( So its old ) It's incredibly near Royal Prince Alfred Hospital. Pretty handy for those attending any courses there. The bus service to town and back is a handy plus point. Save on taxi fares. If you walk uphill you get to Kings st...which is a brilliant place as it houses quite a number of second hand bookstores. I know regret not buying more books. DAMM!!

Sydney in Spring

I finally did it. Climbed the Sydney Bridge. On the very first day, after wading though customs ( no body frisking....and bags were opened in the process) we proceeded to the lodgings to dump the bags...and off to particular CHINATOWN for a spot of Yum Cha. The weather was ( unfortunately ) gloomy on arrival and there was a slight chill in the wind. It went right thru the T-shirt and made me think...maybe I should have brought a thicker jumper.
Anyway after food and feeling decidedly more energetic, we made our way down George St ( a very long street) onto Circular Quay....took the obligatory pictures with Sydney Opera House in the background....went to the ROCKS ( bought nothing there...) and finally into the bridge climb office to be gowned up and geared up for the climb. The view was spectacular!!!
