April Adventures

April hasn’t been particularly great with posts. In fact it hasn’t been any. Today I thought ‘why not update on my month’ so here I am.

First off I’m going to pay my respects to ALL Soldiers who have lost their lives. Today is ANZAC Day and a special day for me personally. My pop was in the Vietnam War however he passed away last year so as a tribute my uncles went in the march to honor him. Just wanted to say that I love and miss him like crazy.

Lets we forget.

As for me, April has been crazy, hectic, beautiful, wonderful, mad and altogether amazing. Let me begin by saying, no I have NOT remained healthy. Family (mainly my dad) have been visiting and I have been working a lot. Not to mention study. Speaking of study, I have now completed my foundation units as well as my pracs with those units and on the way to gaining access to my full course.

I am so proud of my self this month. Not only have I completed all my written body of work but also managed to complete my verbal and practical body of work. Though, I have to say speaking is sometimes not my strong point. However, I gt through it and was even told by the assessor that I did really well and maintained a warm and friendly approach through the whole assessment. *HAPPY DANCE*

Dad came down to visit- from Queensland- twice. The first time he came, it was Ben and I’s third year anniversary. Crazy right? I have actually been in a relationship for 3 years and 1 month (as of writing this post). The second time I didn’t think he would make it as he was on the bus and had to go through flood water. He made it and when he came up started my love of Chinese food. I don’t usually eat Chinese but when dad was up, we had a nice little lunch date which started my love for it. We found a nice little restaurant and I got a Mongolian Beef. My goodness it was AMAZING!

Dad even helped me out in the garden. I was inspired by the garden looking so good that I even created a few little pots:

I haven’t taken a picture of the work done to the garden as there is still more (a lot more) work to do. Plus these guys are super cute and even though this picture is taken when I first started them, as a proud beginner with gardening, it is important to know that they are growing. For me to have plants growing is super exciting as I seem to have them dying on me usually. Fingers crossed.

My uncles have been up from Sydney for a visit and in fact are coming up again tomorrow, this time bringing my cousin. My Aunt had even visited with one of my little cousins which was pretty awesome to see them.

This month I have even been seeing more of my friends. I mean I have been making time and the effort to reconnect or connect with old and new friends. That has been really great and really surprising to see that I do still have the capability to make friends.

This post will be continued 🙂 It’s a bit hard to get all on one month in as well as provide details of the adventures had but I think I’m doing ok.

Until next time xx
