When you have a flu and think things cant get any worse, and they do! Well yesterday they did, I had a dentist appointment, and he informed me that I have 4 baby teeth to pull out! Yikes! You can imagine what my first thought was (ie. NOOOOOOO!!!). Thankfully Mum decided that it would probably be better to wait till I was a little bit healthier. But he pulled one out anyway :(
I still haven't been able to finish my assignment. My brain can barely think of what to write in this blog post let alone think of assignments! Well I guess I am not to bad because I almost finished writing my entry for the Elaine Mitchell Rural Women's Writing Award. I have about 7 days to finish it and send it in.
Till next time! Hopefully I will be a bit healthier next time I write :)

Dad's birthday, we didn't do anything. It was a pretty normal day except that Dad got a few presents and we made his favorite dinner and had a nice dessert.
My birthday, we didn't do anything. It was a pretty normal day except that we tried something new for dinner, its called a Steam Boat. Its Chinese, basically you have a wok of boiling chicken stock in the middle of your table and you cut all the meat and vegetables up into tiny slices and marinate them, then when you are ready to eat, every one gets a little wire basket and they cook their own. We made a big mess and had lots of fun we did get pictures taken, but I'm not going to upload them now.
I am still having trouble with this writing assignment, I know I know I shouldnt be taking this long on one assignment! I have been telling myself that for a very long time, but I have just got no idea on how to do it, my mum helped me figure out how to do a very basic outline then I sent that to my tutor and she told me to use that for my assignment but add some detail! How on earth can I add detail when I dont even have the material I am going to write with anyway? I am just going to be writing down stories. And seeing as though I am not even 100% sure I am going to write a book right now... and explaining it is even harder than writing it.
Well I have to go. I have a head ache and I feel like I am about to fall asleep, I think being sick does that too you. :(

Oh well I guess now I am here writing I might as well finish a blog post, I have actually written about 4 but they all seem to have ended up unfinished in drafts :P. Not good.
Today, is my 15th birthday. So far it has been a pretty normal day (ok, ok I got to sleep in), my sisters got up and got ready for work, told me happy birthday and left. I made myself a coffee and sat here at the computer to see what horrible comments were made by my friends about the photos my sister put on Face book of Sarah (my other sister) dying my hair (that story later). Then looked up my friends blogs to see what they had written, but only one was updated, which reminds me I have to thank Elisha for following my blog... Pause... ok that's done :). And now as you can see I am typing out this. And soon my parents will call me to go down to help feed the poddie calves.
My Grandma (grandmother on my Mum's side) is staying for 4 days over my and Dad's birthday (Dad's birthday was yesterday, but I had better not tell you how old he is, lol), so probably in not too short a time I will be receiving more 'happy birthdays', *sigh* I was sick of this birthday before it even came, and now I have to live through 4 days of it (ok two down, my Aunt and uncle came up over the Queen's birthday weekend, Dad's birthday is over, that leaves 2 to go, today and Saturday, Mama, my grandmother on my Dad's side, is coming on Saturday).
Yesterday, Sarah decided it would be a good idea to get some hair products (ie. hair spray), she had told me this much but when she came home she was armed with two packets of hair dye, for Ayala's and Sarah's 15th birthdays Mum took them to the hair dresser to have their hair dyed, but since I don't really 'love' having my hair dyed, I begged out and Mum signed me up for folk art lessons instead (much funner in my opinion), but apparently I wasn't getting out that easily, my sister decided to be 'nice' and buy me PURPLE hair dye! Thankfully, when she put it in it just turned my hair a darker shade of brown and in the light it has kinda a purple-ish glow, I just have to wear a hat, and no one will know :D! But my brother bore the brunt of her 'good ideas' too she got him blond streaks (we had been trying to convince him for weeks that he should get some hair gel and put his hair in spikes or something, he told us that is was for girls and he wasn't having any of it, Did I mention he looks really good with spiky red and blond streaked brown hair?), we had a lot of fun :)
Well I really need to go, get dressed in 500 layers of clothing before heading out into the 'wild wild white' (and cold!) lol!
Till next time!

Have you ever sat with your family for an evening with a note pad and pen, and written down random things people say? None of it makes sense when you read back over it until you start think of it as something else other than the conversation they were having at the time. I did this one time and afterwards I didn't know what they were talking about but it was weird how some sentences fitted together from different conversations! (and that's the ideas and writing bits put into one).
Mum and Dad just called so I have to go feed poddie calves (and that wraps up the 'what ever else I feel like writing' bit, except that I would rather not have written it).
Got to go. Till next time!

I guess I should do a young maidens day book, I forgot last week.
One of my favourite things.... sunshine after rain
My favorite Aunt and my Mum (any family resemblance?).
Well I was going to say a heap more but I think I will leave it for today and go do something constructive (as my mum is usually saying).
Till next time!

Today, there was a fellowship meeting at our friend's house. Pretty much same old stuff... Except this time we were slightly more prepared, instead of playing our usual Pictionary, Articulate, The Oxford Game, or Monopoly, we took the NIV Bible game (we don't read that version of the Bible but... Oh never mind.). And instead of Madagascar we borrowed the Amazing Grace movie from our local video shop and had a really nice change :), did I mention that I love Amazing Grace? That is one of the most beautiful movies I have seen in my life, its very inspirational, amazing... I guess the only word I can think of right now is 'story' but that word seems to be so... so what I am not sure, I am too tired to think of where my brain is going right now.
Tomorrow... Grandma, Auntie Jane and Uncle Mark are coming up tomorrow. They were going to go for a bush walk and camp, but the weather isn't good here, so they decided to come up and visit us instead. I'll write more on this sometime after tomorrow happens.

I've been doing a lot of cleaning (and thinking!!) lately, trying to finish projects and things before... well I guess before I turn 15, I know I might be making a big deal about it and I should stop worrying about it, but... Even when I tell my self that, I still feel like I should be getting ready to get a job, kind of like 'putting away childish things', I know I am being silly... because I don't even know that I will get a job, just because both my sisters got jobs right after the 15th birthday doesn't mean I will, right? OK, I think you get the gist of whats been going through my mind lately!
Isn't it funny, when you experience something and you want to put it into words but it just never seems to come out right, well sometimes it does but... yeah. OK, to get the point (lol), I went for a ride on my pony the yesterday, it was really cloudy and it was about to start raining, it was late so it was almost twilight, and I was cantering/galloping around a not long sowed paddock. That's the picture, but how do you describe the sounds of his hooves hitting the soft ground, the off balance feeling I got when he turned the corner of the paddock a bit too quick, the acceleration that he loves to surprise me with when I think he is already going as fast as he can, the slight panic I got when my dog was standing right where Blackie and I were about to go? I could go on and on, but I think you know what I am talking about. My tutor told me to keep a note pad handy (not that I can write down this stuff when I am flying along at 40 K's an hour on the back of my pony!), but writing them down isn't the problem, its how to correctly describe them. (Another funny thing, lol, is that when you start writing you end up saying exactly what was on your mind!).
Till next time.
