Even though we are in the middle of autumn, there are still some beautiful roses in bloom.
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!
There are a couple of local cafes that use unmatched cups and saucers. What a lovely way to repurpose.
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.
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.
Even James Bond gets a mention!?!
