Yeah this time of year is kinda what I classify as the "inbetween" time...as its the time between Christmas and New Year, which is pretty much a holiday time! I dont work in this period of holiday time, as i dont go back to work until the 4th of January so its great!!

Anyways, big news first!

:devBrisburians: and SydneySyders ran two contests in conjuction to each other – Going Red for Brisburnians and Going Blue for SydneySyders I entered my Afternoon Glory photo in the Going Red contest held by Brisburnians and it turns out I won!! I cannot believe it :) I am stoked :) It made my Christmas finding that out :) I would like to thank the group admin and the judges and to all those entered. Thank you all :hug:

Winner – Afternoon Glory by game-breaker

Going Red. by ExtremeProjects The Clown by Froggy1294


Hope you all had a great Christmas, Santa bought you what you wanted, you enjoyed the time with family and friends and the weather was kind to you :)

I currently am enjoying listening to the steady rain falling on the roof while watching the cricket on the TV. Australia is playing Pakistan in the Boxing test match and the Aussies are doing quite well :)

I am still rather scared of going out driving anywhere around the coast with the scary drivers on the road. Christmas Eve, i nearly ended up in 6 crashes. One lady went around a corner and just drove from her lane into my lane without indicating or any room, thankfully i was quick on the brakes and the car behind me wasnt pleased tho, then in a carpark, one car reversed out from my left, another fro my right...i was stuck in the middle of it (car in front of me had stopped) and beeped my horn so loudly finally they stopped, just short of my car...eeeek!!

Although I am still waiting for the postie to come and deliever my new wide angle lens, I do hope its soon. Its raining, dark cloud overcast atm so its terrible conditions, but occasional light patches shining through the clouds dwn across the farmlands on the Obi Obi are spectacular so hopefully it comes soon so I can give it a good try out.

New Years is just a few days away and with that it brings the new year 2010. I do hope 2010 will bring a better year, this year has been an up-dwn year with plenty of challenges. I have decided to take the year off of studying at Uni to work fulltime and get some money behind me so I complete my Uni course without having to worry about working overtime to get through. I do hope twenty ten will bring a better year with my health as well. I've had 9 nine ear infections, all of which middle ear :( which are very painful. Swine Flu flared up my Asthma which still hampers me, and my injured shoulder improved then unimproved and still is only at 40% which I hope improves soon. I have never been one to be sick a lot so I do hope that improves next year :)


Anyways I have been searching through dA quite a bit over the last 2 or so days and found some great new young Aussie deviants to watch. Please check out their work, its well worth it :)
