I can't imagine anyone even checks this blog anymore; I know I tend to give up on a blog after about 3 months without posting, but hey!
What's happened? Well, I've fallen madly in love with a man from the land in my small town. So, I live on a farm. Not really "on the farm" though, I still work in town 5 days a week, so am not as involved as I probably should be, but if I'm around and there's mustering or branding or whatever on, I join in.

That's what my brain thinks,when I think about blogging. I wish it didn't and that my brain was all, "hell yeah! Blogging!" But it's not.
For my followers, I say sorry. I'll leave the blog up just in case my brain kicks into blogging gear. I appreciate those of you who have read my random nonsense over the years.
This isn't a final farewell. It's see ya later. Maybe.

Feeling a little better now.
Watching Biggest Loser Finale. I can't believe what they look like.
I'd go in it, but then I'd need to get time off, and I doubt the government looks kindly on, "I need time off so that I can stand in my underwear with my fat rolling over them on national TV." I also think I could never command respect again.
But who cares? I'm lighter than I've been in ages. Since 2004 I think.
And it's still leaving my body!

And then I do something that reminds me I live in the country.
On Saturday, I drove 1.5 hours to a town with a cinema to see Battleship. And I'm glad it wasn't crap. It was quite good. Except the battleship bit with "C11" grid references. That was pretty lame.
And then I went to a grocery shop with more than 2 aisles! Great. :) I know it's all about shopping locally, but I need to have choice of more than one brand. And to know the meat hasn't been defrosted and refrozen. Or that the food I'm buying is in date.
Then I drove 1.5 hours home. It was a good day.
And when in Brisbane, if I have to drive more than 10 minutes, I won't do it.
The mind-set changes.

Cried at work today. Not a really big thing but I was so angry that I wasn't being listened to, that I had to let the emotion out. And I guess it's better your boss thinks you're a big girl than an angry bit.
I'm not the first one though. The new curriculum is killing joy.

I don't actually have a three day weekend; I did a 13 hour day yesterday and will be back on Monday.
But I took 5 students on an 8 hour round-trip to see a show. I loved it.
It did NOT feel like work. It was an outing with people I got to know much better and hopefully will have better relationships with.
All I can say is, having the chance to have that day is something I am honoured to have in my job.
And I realised that I am so proud to be called 'Miss'. I realised it yesterday. Like when women say their name is now Mum, my name is Miss. And I must say, I am honoured, and filled with love for the special people I allow to know me as such.
