Another Wednesday

It's been ages since I last blog. Of late, I seem to have lost the mojo to blog. Perhaps too many not-so-personal posts. I reckon I blog and write better when I am emotional which is usually when life isn't going right. So, I guess it is good that I haven't had 'emo' posts in awhile. Then again, it doesn't mean that all is rosey in Estherville. Lols.


My lunch today from Tasty Trucks AUD5.90 - roast beef with tomatoes, onions, carrots and cucumber with cheese

Had a short walk around the compound which is what Aussies do when the opportunity presents itself

Sat in the beautifully simple pergola and enjoyed the breeze


As I've not been able to secure a full time job, I've volunteered to work part time at a non-profit organisation. Volunteer being the operative word for non-paying. ;p It's not related to my line of work that is accounting but I am alright with it, for now.

SuQ who oversees me is a really lovely lady and has been extremely kind with her praises. This job is an easy transition back to working life. Yeah sure, it is a non paying job but nevertheless, it is work. And over here in Australia, volunteer work is highly looked up upon. Doesn't hurt that it helps with filling up my resume.

I reckon that God really has a plan for me to be here. I can't tell you how I know but I just do. The story of how I came to be in this position is interesting and some people might put it to pure coincidence but I put it as God's hands at work.  So far, despite my struggle to wake up the mornings I have to work, it has been good. I hope I can really be a blessing to those around me as I have been blessed.

Homemade sausage rolls and puffs AND sticky date pudding!!
On a different note, it has come to my attention that packing lunch from home and short walks about one's office compound is part of the Aussie culture. Of course, if one works in the shopping centre or certain offices that is confined, then people don't go for walks. Mr. C and his colleagues do walk occasionally and as far as I know, Sal does, too.

As for lunch pack, half of my current colleagues pack lunch from home and so does Mr. C's colleagues. This really is a way to save money.

Toodles for now.
