After 25 1/2 years, Neale and I are now empty nesters!!!
On Sunday, we took Laura to Melboune - and left her there!!!
Laura starts at RMIT in Melboune next week. She's going to be doing a Bachelor of Arts in Game Design - she takes after Neale and is very artistic and is very into computer/console gaming etc. We've got her accommodation in a UniLodge about 5 mins walk from the University. We took down her stuff and helped her get settled.
She'll be coming back home this Friday/Saturday and I'll go back with her on Sunday - we'll take some more of her clothes and things for her then.
Laura was given a small scholarship also by the University which is a great help - we've applied for a Youth allowance for her and hopefully she/we will qualify for - anything to help cover the accommodation fees. If we don't qualify, I told Neale to get another job!!!!
Neale is busy this Sunday - setting up his art show at the gallery here in Churchill at Federation Uni. This is Neale's show for his Master of Fine Arts degree. He had to hand in his exegesis in January (19000 words and 90 pages long). he's got 15 of his artworks printed up for this show. Opening night is on Tuesday 3/3 - the culmination of 4 years part-time study.
He's now mentioning do his doctorate - 8 years part-time and will most likely stat that next year.
Sewing wise for me - just some mending and reading lots of magazines. I got a phone call from the newsagents in Morwell requesting that I pick up my collection of Threads and Vogue magazines - 5 of them! Gulp, very expensive to pick up all in one hit!
I finally found pininterest and some time to have a look at it. Have been pinning clothes that I like and what I think that Laura would/might like.
