Last Post

Not that I am expecting anyone to read this because I haven't blogged in four months, but this is my final post to let you all know that this is my final post.

The Dentist

I have never been timid of visits to the dentist, but recently I had to get my two top wisdom teeth extracted.

On Friday I was very very nervous before going to the dentist. Now needles do not bother me, but it was the thought of getting my teeth yanked out while I was awake that bothered me.

Thankfully, the experience was not too traumatising apart from getting a bit panicky when the anaesthetic was put in the roof of my mouth and it felt like my mouth was starting to swell up.

The crunching sound was not too pleasant either but thankfully the whole process was over and done with in half an hour. And I have had no bruising, swelling or much pain at all. Now that is a blessing!!!

Unfortuantely I am making another trip to the dentist today. It looks as though I might be having a second root canal. I had one in January.

After this I really hope I have no more trouble with my teeth. Maybe it's easier having false ones!!

More Stuff

Just been down to Nowra on the weekend. It is so relaxing down there and so great to get away from busy Sydney. Tim helped out with the youth group's learn to surf afternoon. I stayed at home and worked on a college assignment.

After church on Sunday morning we came home and Tim's parents told us that someone had made an offer on his house. This was great because we've only had it on the market for a few weeks. What transposed is that we've accepted an offer on the house and if all goes well it should be sorted out soon!!! That was a real answer to prayer.

Had run ins with the medicare office people lately. Isn't it frustrating when you're just trying to get something done and people are rude to you? Thankfully on my final visit I had a friendly staff member and I was able to finally get a medicare card.

Next thing to do is get a new passport and see how I can get approval to teach here in NSW.

Might have some more people over this weekend to our little apartment. Otherwise we could be heading down to Nowra again. Yet to find out.

That's all for now.

Stuff That's Happening

Hello again. Been awhile since I blogged last time. Because the only internet access I have is at college and I don't live on campus anymore, I dare say my posts will be fairly infrequent. I haven't even replied to many emails yet.

Anyway, I'll try to update you a bit on what is going on in my life. Our little 2 bedroom apartment is going really well now. We finally got some 2 seater couches on Saturday, borrowed from Tim's cousin and put them in our flat. Now it really feels homely.

We got rid of our old car by taking it to a wreckers. It served us well, but it's pretty much a piece of junk now. Now we have a new reliable car. It's a toyota corolla, conquest. Metallic blue. Only done 73,000km and we go it with 12 months reg already on the car. We like it. So that's good.

Tomorrow night we're going to visit Tim's Nan for tea. I really like going to Nan's house. It is so relaxing to hang out at her house and just chat with her.

I am getting my two top wisdom teeth out in 3 weeks time!!! Not looking forward to it really, but will be good to ensure that they don't keep getting infected.

Going down to Nowra this weekend. Hopefully the weather is good for a swim at the beach.

College life is off to a good start. I'm enjoying my subjects and I've got a good load so that I can cope with part time work at the same time. I'll only have two exams this semester and one exam next semester. Wooohoooo!!!

Had some college people over for tea on Saturday night. That was awesome to have people over. That was that first time we've had a group of people over for tea. It was so good to hang out with friends and chat.

Holidays are only 5 weeks away. That is scary. My sister is coming over in the holidays. Cool.
My parents are coming over in the next holidays in July. Cool. Can't wait.

That's about all the stuff that's happening in my life at the moment. Until my next interesting update, see you all later.

Quick Update

Hi everybody. I am back at college now so I finally have internet access again. Just to let you all know that I am settled back in Australia and am enjoying married life. Tim and I have found a place to live here in Sydney that is close to college and within walking distance. I'll be studying at college this year and working part-time and Tim will be working.

Happily Married

Almost two weeks have passed since Tim and I got married on Saturday December 17th. The wedding day was so great. It was lovely having all our family and friends there to celebrate with us. Thank you to all those people who helped make it such a special day for us. As with anything in life you can't expect everything to perfect. The weather wasn't the best and Tim ended up getting sick. But isn't it great how you can turn seemingly negative things into positives. Because the weather wasn't so great we had our photos at Nathan Homestead which ended up being way better than the Botanical Gardens and our photos are really great. And because Tim was sick we ended up doing nothing much at all for half of our time away at Pauanui. This was good because it meant we had a really good rest which both of us really needed.

I am truly fortunate to have such a kind, caring and loving man for a husband and I can foresee that the years ahead are going to be good ones for Mr and Mrs Tim and Christy Dallimore, whatever the future may bring.

One More Day

Just one more day and I'll be married. That's a strange concept really. One day you're single and the next day you're married. Well, I'm glad that day has nearly arrived. Everything is nearly organised and things seem to be running smoothly at the moment. The next time I blog I will be a happily married woman. See you at the wedding!

It's Getting Closer

The day of my wedding (or should I say 'our' wedding) is getting closer and closer. I am really looking forward to all the preparations being over and enjoying the wedding day. I am so over shopping, planning, organising, choosing, deciding, contemplating, analysing, theorising, hypothesising........and on the list goes. That's enough to make anyone tired!!

11 days to go and my single life is over. A new chapter begins. One with lots of unknowns and plenty of fun times. I am eagerly anticipating it.

Jody my bridesmaid arrives tomorrow.

Dinner with family in 10 minutes. Great!
