Weekly Photo Challenge – Prolific



The image of Queen Elizabeth II is prolific, present in large numbers, in our everyday lives, on our coins and stamps.IMG_4217

As the Queen hosts the Commonwealth Summit in London this week, we appreciate her influence on a global scale. “Fifty three countries are members of the Commonwealth, home to 2.4 billion people. Our countries span Africa, Asia, the Americas, Europe and the Pacific and are diverse – they are amongst the world’s largest, smallest, richest and poorest countries.”

Happy birthday Ma’am.
God bless the Queen.Q 1

Quiet please, I have questions



I’m a week into a new job, a temporary position for a few months, doing Accounts Payable at a school. I have lots of questions, about the system, their procedure. New names and faces to remember, a large school campus to navigate.

It’s a long time since I’ve put myself under this much pressure, pushed myself this much out of my comfort zone. But it is getting easier each day. I have revisited a couple of text books from my studies last year, which help. Everyone is very friendly and supportive.

I’m sure I’ll soon get on top of the workload and it will feel less hectic. In the meantime, roll on the weekend! IMG_E4122

Line of bricks



This is the Convict Brick Trail in Campbell Town, Tasmania. The bricks are dedicated to some of the convicts who were transported to Australia from 1788, for almost one hundred years.IMG_3937

The trail was a privately organised project, with bricks purchased and details provided by individuals or descendants of the convicts identified on the brick.

Each brick states the name and age of the person, the ship they arrived on, their crime and sentence. Also, some other piece of information, perhaps where they were from, who they married, where they died, their achievements (or otherwise) in their new land.IMG_3935

Even James Bond gets a mention!?!IMG_3933
