What I ate and did this week

Thanks for visiting. Please check out the rest of Yummy Lummy. I’d love it if you shared this site with your friends.

It’s been a good week. A busy week but a good week. Yesterday an election was held to determine the Australian government. Unlike the previous election when the conservative coalition (Liberal Party and National Party) won convincingly, we still do not know which party will govern and who our Prime Minister will be. Under our ‘caretaker’ conventions, a new government, the 45th government, will not be sworn in until the result is clear. Counting will resume on Tuesday so we will continue to wait. Last week I mentioned how I voted early to avoid crowds and queues. I had thought I may attend a polling venue or two to check out the sausage sizzles and cake stalls. It was interesting to read on Twitter how many people went for a #democracysausage Twitter was pretty cool in that when #ausvotes was used a little character of a sausage on a piece of white bread would appear in the tweet.

Yesterday a Facebook friend and I were discussing VLOGging so I had a go. I’m sorry about the volume changing midway. I’m not sure if I’ll do more, but it was pretty easy. My only problem is that the upload speeds I get with Telstra ADSL is pretty slow and it takes hours to upload a short video to YouTube.

Friday was a funny day (funny in a good way). I turned up to work (Fridays are my clinical duties day, I’m an Honorary Visiting Medical Officer in ACT Pathology at The Canberra Hospital) and noticed my laboratory coat was hooked over three hooks. I thought that was a little unusual. I continued to my work area and then I saw an old photograph from my Facebook profile on a whiteboard. It’s an old photograph that had been altered by a former work colleague in 2010. A mullet had been added and my head was put on another person’s neck. It looks pretty funny. As I continued I found copies in all sorts of unusual places, behind doors, on doors, in draws, under keyboards, on staplers, and you guessed it behind my laboratory coat. It’s nice to be considered by my work mates as someone worthy of having fun.

I don’t have a heap of food photographs from this week. I was a little unwell early in the week and didn’t feel like eating much or photographing my food.
