I have not been able to down load any photos to this page for two days there seems to be a glitch somewhere. Kept just coming up unable to download, but my other page had no problems. Just one of those little mysteries, that are sent to test our patience. Maybe it is now critiquing the photos. Ha, but then you would have to wonder why it allowed this one through
Yes this was my idea and I have had the hardest time deciding what challenge to use.
Pottery- In 1994 I decided to become a potter. Spent a fortune on equipment, books, a certificate course and a lot of time. Thought about the headings- " the Good, the Bad and the Ugly". But alas, I couldn't come up with a photo to put in the good spot. Still have all the gear and the idea that maybe one day!!!!!!!!
Degree- Yes I have one of those but it doesn't make for interesting viewing.
Weight- Couldn't find a yo yo to take a photo of, they must be out of vogue at the present
So I guess that leaves what was probably my biggest challenge of choice.
Going on a working holiday to another country. -Not such a challenge when your younger but when your ???????
First theres the qualification registration- please read red tape, blunders, lost paper work, fees.
That took 6 months.
Registering with an agency- please read red tape, paper work, medical and medical history (only question NOT asked - "age of toilet training").
Work Permit & Visa -easy
House sitter- save that story for the disaster challenge.
The swans Down Under are black. These were the first of my English whites at Exeter Quay.
Winter was fascinating, with the cold and snow.
Lived in a basement flat, you can see the front door and one window (with the bars). The rest of the house was lived in by the owners, who were the best landlords you could ever hope for.This is at the main bus depot, where I changed buses to go to and from work. They sent me home early this evening, because if you got snowed in at work ,you just stayed and worked because the chances were that the next shift wouldn't be able to get in.
I managed to travel to heaps of places and rarely stayed still on any days off. Met some wonderful people.
I could have stayed longer but I was homesick, so decided to head home.
