Happy Christmas and a Merry Birthday to me =D.

Had my birthday a couple of days ago (Yay me!) - turned the big 3...0 *gulp*. I'm hoping it doesn't mean I have to grow up. Too bad if I do - I've just signed up to go back to Uni. =)

Life has been full of changes. I'm a year out of the country now, and settling in to city life. It can be tiring. Just the time it takes to get anywhere using Adelaide's wondrous public transport system *tone of biting sarcasm*.

I've taken up sewing. Doing one part-time and one casual job and I'm way too exhausted right now to make with the funnies - but they both do have their points which I'll be sure to update you on when I return in the new year. If it's allowed within my employers' privacy policies of course =D.

PS I hope Aunt Sarah and Uncle John* do eventually get their Christmas card, and all those others out there like them who had their cards sent to them with only their first names (possibly second names), or even just 'Grandma,' etc and no address whatsoever. They made the hand-sorting of mail more amusing (and a little sad sometimes the card from a grand child who lovingly hand decorated envelope wouldn't make it before Christmas).

Yes, I was sorting mail for the Australian Postal Service. It's a fun summer job if you're wondering - highly recommended to Uni students. Get in early though - the more training you have, the more fun it is.

PPS Square envelopes are the devil. Not that I minded too much - I just looked at them as extra work (hours) for those of us doing hand sorting.

PPSS But the person who invented the triangular envelopes should be paper-cut repeatedly. Christmas will be interesting for Aust Post if those things take off.

*not the actual names so if Sarah and John are missing some mail - it wasn't me.
