Scrapbooking Garage Sale


All Grown Up

Yesterday was such a big day.  The day you truly realise your baby has grown up.  I mean I have known for sometime that Grace was growing up, but yesterday was such a big new step in that growing up process.  I am so very proud of her and all that she has accomplished and no doubt will keep doing so.

Yesterday Grace started her first (real) job.  She is working at her Dad's office in town sorting mail and inputting address changes and things.  She gets to work at the office permanently during school holidays.  This is a fantastic opportunity for her.  Not only will she be earning money to support her spending but she will be able to carry on her studies at school and not have to try and juggle work and school.  Also this gives her a jump start into working in the future - whatever field she tries for.

Brad has been very supportive in helping Grace to get this position and taking her to work each day (ok this only day 2 LOL)

Good on you Grace.  Here are couple of photos of Grace just before she sets off for day 1 of her working career.

Welcome to the family ... Bumblebee

Well, it is official, we are going to get rid of my lovely car.  This means we needed a new mode of transport.  After much deliberation we decided the best thing to do was to get Brad a scooter and I would use the 4x4 Nissan Mistral.  So today we all went into town so Brad could pay for and pick up his new scooter.  He chose the yellow one and it has been named "Bumble Bee".  Yes Brad is a transformers fan too LOL.  So I just had to share some photos of him picking up and riding his scooter home.
 As well as the scooter we also made sure he was safe with a new helmet, proper jacket and gloves.  It bought back memories seeing Brad on two wheels.  You see back when we were dating he had a motorbike.  Great fun!
 Doesn't he look the part?
Now if you look at the handle bars of the scooter, don't they look like a bumble bee's face?

On the way home something really funny happened.  Most of the way home Brad either rode behind or beside another scooter ...
Then we noticed the two license plates.  Brad's is A4KBL and the other scooter was A5KBL.  Tell me, what are the chances of that happening.  It was really hard to get a photo of the plates as I only had my mobile phone and seeing as I was driving I had to get Grace to take the photo.  But really have you ever seen two vehicles with numerically in order number plates?
