New job - new routine

Unfortunately I haven't really got that much to report on the knitting front. I've been quite busy trying to settle into my new job. In particular my new desk. I've got a desk which faces out onto the harbour. Whilst I said in one of my previous posts about jobs with harbour views, I can't believe that I actually have one. My new workplace is so much more nicer (only week 2 - I know) but it's so much more relaxing than my last job. I am going to work knowing that I'm not putting up with people's moodiness!!

On the long weekend that past, we went to the Floriade (again). I think this is the third year in a row we've been. Yet again, all photos look the same. We stayed with my parents again in Goulburn and did more weeding. Apparently we have an issue with serrated tussock which is this noxious weed. The noxious weed inspector keeps calling me to tell me to do something about it. I have, but nothing seems to work. So this weekend we drove around in my dad's ute (it's a manual shift and so I can only get it to go into first and second gear - oh and I can reverse as well) and manually dug them out. It was so boring. I think there is still one more weekend worth of digging to get rid of it all. And then the stupid neighbour's weeds will blow over to our property and so at the end of the day is probably fruitless anyway.

I went to see Devil Wears Prada and am so jealous of the fantastic outfits which Ann Hathaway gets to wear. Other movie I saw was Little Miss Sunshine. This movie is really funny/sad. Highly recommend it to anyone. It made me happy to know that there could be more dysfunctional families out there than mine.

Oh, here is a picture of me and my sister's at this Japanese yukata (summer kimono) workshop we went to. That's me in the middle.
