My arm

I have had an interesting week at work. As you know i have tendonitis in my right elbow. when i visited my physio on Monday he was none to pleased that i was not beginning to feel pain free yet. He then rang my work and told them i was to be on light duties and why haven't they been doing that. So they called in the lady who filled in when i was on leave to come in and work with me. She is to work with me for two weeks. As she is helping i will finish up too early so i have to clean out an office so i finish at my normal time. My colleagues think i should have been given 2 weeks off work.
On top of that i had the other cleaner saying to me she has been there 8 years and she has all these problems with her hand and saying to me you only been here a shorter time and you already have an injury. I was cross about her saying that as she made it sound like a competition on who had the most injuries.

Sydney Holiday

Helen and I at Melbourne Airport waiting to board our plane.

The first person to greet us on our first night in Sydney was our dear blogger friend, Kylie!

On my first morning I awoke to this view of the dust storm from my hotel room.

Pictures taken from a Sydney Harbour ferry during the dust storm.

Helen and I with our five dollar sunnies which we bought in Manly after crossing the harbour on the ferry.

During my holiday to Sydney I stayed with my birth mother, Sandra and her husband, Henry at their home in Halliday's Point; two hours north of Newcastle.

Some views of Halliday's Point. Oh look how blue it is!

Some pelicans at Forster waiting for the fishermen to return with their catch. This village is called 'Foster' even though it is spelt F-o-r-s-t-e-r. If you say the name, 'Forster' the locals know that you're a tourist!
