Superleague Reserves Runners-up 2015

Our new team, Rossmoyne Masters made it straight through to the Superleague Reserves grandfinal! We beat Uni Gold 3-0, it was the first time we'd beaten them the whole season, plus, the win taking us straight through to grandfinals was like a dream!

However, with a team of 10 at the beginning of the season, dropping to 9 due to injury, it was still a big team in terms of numbers (not height). With my height of 163cm (5' 3" ?), I've never been a powerful hitter but my good defensive and passing skills always gets me a spot.

The grandfinals was against the younger Rossmoyne team, made up of 16-17 year old juniors. They were much much bigger and taller and stronger, most of them training up to 6 times a week with state, school and club training.

There were no nerves or excitement on my part, I played as hard as I usually do but we went down 3-1.

Ashlea's team also made it through to the Division 1 grandfinals but they lost in 5 sets.

I'm determined to start Jimmy early on chores this time! He can already put the dishwasher tablet in and start the dishwasher, he also helps me load the washing machine with laundry and start it.

We have "mopping days" ie I whiz around with the broom while he slops water on the floor ...

And with summer soon approaching, my little pool boy gets stuck right into cleaning.

Horoscope and my pai mia

A few months ago when things were in a state and I was in a dilemma about TAFE, this horoscope popped up.

Looking back at the last 12 months, when my attempts to study at TAFE was thwarted makes me realize that sometimes, things DO happen for a reason.

The catalyst for a career change mid-2014 was when our very last IVF attempt came to naught.

So, no sibling for Jimmy. No more being pregnant. And very importantly, no more being a computer programmer for me.

As usual, when I get an idea into my head, I power into action to make it work. I was keen to get started at TAFE but it wasn't meant to be. The anaesthetic technician course is now being converted from a Cert IV to a Diploma so I must wait.

In the meantime, I'm studying 2 units of the Health Science Foundation course at Curtin University. Looking back at the course of events, I realized that it's much better timing for me to study fulltime at TAFE next year. Jimmy will be turning 4 next year, and will be able to handle and enjoy more days at kindy then.
