Monday 29 August 2016

A relatively uneventful day at work, busy but not hectic.

Dinner was salmon and prawns coated in crumbs made from panko and fried shallots

Tuesday 30 August 2016

Nothing to report from Work

Bad news

Miss15 broke the fifth metacarpal on her dominant hand while on the balance beam. This means she won’t be competing with Ms19 at the National Club Championships in Bendigo later in September. I am so sad for Miss15. She’s already had a couple of fractured vertebrae last year as well as an injured ankle.

Dinner was baked salmon with avocado on a bed of pearl barley couscous

Highlight #1

Performance review time. I came away very happy.

Highlight #2

The plumber came and fixed a leak in my en suite hand basin, repaired the taps in my laundry and tightened the taps in my shower. For those querying, yes I could do this myself but all my tools are still in storage and as a renter I shouldn’t be doing my own running repairs.

Dinner was chicken Maryland with macaroni and Brussels sprouts

Thursday 1 September 2016

It wasn’t pay day so it wasn’t an exciting Thursday. I did have a good meeting though at Russel Offices.

Dinner was a piece of chicken Maryland on a bed of crispy crunchy ‘instant’ noodles with Brussels sprouts.

Friday 2 September 2016

Hospital day!

Highlight #3

I received a gift from a workmate who had just passed her Part I examinations for her Fellowship of the Royal College of Pathologists of Australasia. She bought me a first edition of the American Society for Microbiology’s Manual of Clinical Microbiology. I have every edition of the Manual but the first which was published in 1970. This made my day. I was so happy. In fact, this made my week.

Dinner was leftover lamb shoulder with red quinoa and brown rice done fried rice style except rather than soy sauce I used Worcestershire sauce for an English touch.

Saturday 3 September 2016

It was raining cats and dogs so no walking today.

Lunch was a Garlo’s sausage roll and beef and mushroom hot pie

  1. I love the weekly wrap-up format. And that photo of the spring blossom – how good are they at the moment?! I’m sorry for Miss15 and her broken bone. My son broke his wrist last school term. It’s hard for them when they can’t do what they love to do.

  2. Love the video format, Gary. Sorry to hear about your daughter’s fracture, ouch. Lake Ginninderra is a great place for walking… and those blossoms, sigh. If only the warmer weather would come.

    1. Thanks Liz, at least I will get to see both Miss15 and Ms19 in Bendigo in a couple of weeks. Ms19 will be competing and Miss15 will be there to support the team.
      I really hope it warms up soon, it will be mopre conducive to me managing my weight gain over winter.

  3. I’m so very sorry to hear of miss 15’s fracture, I’m sure she is unhappy not to be able to participate in the competition. I worry about our granddaughter as she competes in cheerleading and is the “flyer”…the one who is always on the very top of a pile of young girls.

    1. Thanks Karen. My youngest two love gymnastics. Each has had fractured vertebrae and other bones broken, ligaments stretched and concussion. I worry about them but they love what they do.
