This weekend we geared up for Halloween. The three youngest kids all got dressed up and trick or treated out there with their Dad on Halloween night. Tom went with his own mates, a couple of girls actually.. and of course, one of them is "just a friend".. yep. Anyway, they all had a ball and they were laughing so much.
I went to work, and worked a twelve hour shift. I only just got over my jet lag feelings this afternoon from that one. I worked in the High Dependency Unit neurosurgery. It was a good shift because I worked with awesome Doctors and Nurses. But I can honestly say my feet were killing me at the end of it even though I wore my wonderful Rockport shoes. I tell ya, you appreciate life so much when you work in these areas.. well, I do any how.
So this afternoon, on Melbourne Cup Day (a horse race that celebrated 150th year today), we went for a drive to Geelong (a bayside suburb to people who are not from Australia). The weather was so lovely there in comparison to Melbourne, just amazing the contrast in temperature. It had rained in the morning.. and it did not begin to rain until we were on the last part of our Ferris Wheel ride. We had dinner and then went to indulge in ice creams. It was so nice on the foreshore there in Geelong, they have made it so pretty. It would be very easy to spend many afternoons there and just chill. Oh, the picture was taken of me on my mobile just before we embarked :)
