Davis visit

Brian and Sue are in town for a visit. They're staying at Smithfield with Monty and Myra. Wayne and I are going out there shortly for a visit. We haven't had tea yet, so we will probably get maccas.

I found some real nibs today. They are Mont Marte. I bought 2 sets of a Nib Holder and 7 nibs for $5.95 each and a Calligraphy Set for $24.95. The Schaeffer set I bought from Officeworks was $64.00 - what a rip-off. Overflow at Stockland had Kneadable Erasers as well, so I bought a pack of 2 for $4.50.

Tomorrow I will have Mason, starting from when he wakes up after his morning nap. I'll be exausted by the time he goes home.

first family outing
Mood:  not sure
Topic: outing

we went as a family to the park. supposedly for mason but we played cricket of a sort and took a lot of photos. love my new lense. motorised and all. kristy used the little digital - it's good for movies, and i used the dlsr for a while then kristy used it. she loves it too.

i like someone else to use my camera because they take photos of things and people that i might not take. makes for a good variety of subjects and a different style too. i'm downloading the photos now.

tonight we go to dinner at 'the banana leaf' on grafton street with the jenners, dales and quinns. haven't been there before. jenners and quinns are going to cherie's wedding. i wasn't going but wayne says we will go. will be interesting.

i love using the gimp. and the new kaleidoscope program update. can't find the extra shapes and frames i bought the first time, though.

  and  my new hp photosmart copier works well even on ordinary paper - now to try with photographic paper.....amd MUST remember to put the paper in right-side-down....

yeah it worked. and no problems. not one. now THAT'S a miracle.
