Hubby has finally found work again....He was originally successful for a similar position at the same mine he was laid off from working at in Mackay...and would be starting soon....but the very next day he received a phone call from Ulan Coal Mining to ask if he was still interested in the Mining Trainee-ship (the one he turned down 3 months ago because he already had a plane ticket to go to Mackay for work). The gentleman said that the Trainee-ship was still available for him...If he wanted it! ...
Of course he was over the moon and accepted it immediately, and to top off the good news.....our neighbour across the road has already arranged accommodation with her best friend. (At least until he finds a house with other work mates)......It just doesn't get any better than this. Thanks Maureen! Thanks Ulan Coal man!
To think it all began like this.........Saturday started with attending the gardening course.....Sunday meeting up with Rose who has her own blog called Greening the Rose, AND is another Down to Earth forum Moderator like me. Rose had a special friend all the way from Cornwall for the weekend.....I have known Pippa for a while now through the same forum, but never imagined I would be lucky to meet her in person.

Tuesday (today) has been a bit of a breakthrough with meds, as I baked Rhonda's Whole Orange Cake into muffin sizes for the community garden...but done a double batch so I had some for home too.
I also peeled and chopped a triple batch of tomatoes and onions for Aunty Shirl's Tomato Relish (another post to come).......

.......and that was all before going to our local Community Garden and planting out a bed of Banana Capsicum.....some Apple Cucumber plants and some Strawberry runners....and once home I finished making some fruit cordial......which I will strain tomorrow.......
Yes! Today was definitely a good day.......Lets hope the rest of the week is the same or even better!
