Accessing work email from home a blessing or a curse? I’m on leave; I should have known better than to check my email. Now I am all upset because a candidate sent me a rather abusive email – something I really don’t need to deal with or think about till Monday. So to cheer myself up I thought that I would share some of my favourite and most cherished items.
This is probably one of the most special presents Jacky has ever gotten me. It is a brick that is laid at Fig Grove, right in the heart of Sydney Olympic Park Homebush. Jacky bought this in 1999 before everything had been built. This is something that was dedicated to me and will remain there forever, maybe for one of our anniversaries we'll go back to visit.
Our Crystalix Crystal, I know that there’s quite a few places that does it now but we did ours back in 2002 in Las Vegas (before the technology was available in Australia). There’s something so magical about Vegas, I can truly say that it was one of the happiest times in my life.
Scary to some, special to us. Back then the computer couldn't detect black hair so we look bald.
Just finishing uni we were so broke, $1 AUD was $0.50 USD we ate subway sandwiches all day long and the most ferrel looking hot dogs. But with a world trip ahead nothing could dull our mood. The thought of secretly eloping did cross our minds (we had already been together 5 years by then) but I guess at the end of the day it’s something you do once so we wanted to do it right. Imagine if we did go through with it we'd be celebrating our 3 year wedding anniversary now!
I use to make so many cards, I love drawing, scrapbooking anything arts and crafts. I made most of these in our first 2-3 years together (back then I had a lot more time), you can't tell from the picture but I actually drew most of these freehand. In one of them I drew the bear using my mouse in MS Paint (had to keep a steady hand for that one), he's wearing a pair of South Park boxers that was part of my present.
Reminiscing the old days
Things we plan to do in the near future:
- Bridge Climb - one day...
- Beach Holiday - We're saving, so going on another world trip is probably out of the question at the moment. Any cheap Vacation recommendations?
