It has been a day of surprises today. Some good and some sad.

The most incredibly unexpected surprise was popping into see our friend who is a 'Good Guy' and putting a deposit onto a Digital SLR Camera for me..... AAAAAAGGGGGGHHHHHHHH. Am sooooo excited about that. I am getting a Canon EOS 1000D twin lens.

We popped in to price a new CD player - we have a 5 disc turntable thingy and husband is a music addict and plays a rotation of about 200 cd's continually. A new one will cost almost $500 can you believe that?? We ended up getting him a 8gig ipod with a cable to plug into the amp, on special for $180. Woo hoo. Now am sitting here loading on his 200 odd albums.... he is techno -challenged and this is a big step... he is coming around though... I think he only just got the gist of cd's rather then vinyl!!

A trip to the Rivers outlet at Kotara and he ended up with a pair of jeans and a nice t shirt too. Retail therapy - gotta love it.

A lot of cleaning out here. Cleaning out and cleaning up. Cleaning out and cleaning up and updating. All good.

To the sad.

One of the cornerstones of the Spiritualist Church passed over this morning. Gwynnie Gill had been battling a debilitating illness for quite a while. Although, from what I heard, had never lost her sense of humour or fighting spirit. Of course she wouldnt. She was one of a kind and worked tirelessly for many many years. If you have ever been to a Sunday Service and enjoyed a delicious sandwich afterwards, that was Gwynnie. She would get up at the crack of dawn on Sunday, get fresh bread and make several trays of sandwiches. They were the best I had ever tasted. Thanks Gwyn. She was also the one who made sure there was things like toilet paper and soap. She will be sorely missed by many. Love and light to her family.

Anyhow - better get on with it. Gotta go and pick a kid up from work shortly.
