I pledge myself loyally to serve my King and Country and to maintain the honour and efficiency of the Australian Army Nursing Service.
'I shall never forget the awful feeling of hopelessness on night duty. It was dreadful. I had two wards downstairs, each over 100 patients and then I had small wards upstairs — altogether about 250 patients to look after, and one orderly and one Indian sweeper. Shall not describe their wounds, they were too awful. One loses sight of all the honour and the glory in the work we are doing.'

As Greek Orthodox Easter co-incides with the Christian calendar this year, goat has been plentiful in the market this week. So it's on the menu here at The Hedge this Easter weekend. I have the time & the enthusiasm - what a luxury.So Buona Pasqua to you all dear Hedgies. It's the Easter break, so go enjoy.

Wish me luck in the car with MOTH. Last time Mr. Grumpy & I travelled down the highway together, it was no speakies from the Stirling roundabout (where a huge brawl occurred about him not giving way to a poor elderly local who got the fright of his life as MOTH bored through!) to Ballarat (approx. 500kms). The silence was only broken when MOTH got hungry & needed to ask me for 5 bucks for a burger & fries at HJ's. See you all next week, with or without MOTH!

It's 16 years today that I walked down the stairs to plight my troth to MOTH. Those gorgeous young boys in the pic are now grown men of 27,29 & 31! We sure have packed a lot into those years, so Happy Anniversary to the long-suffering MOTH. He's planned dinner out on the town tonight (albeit quiet little Stirling). Any place where I don't have to share the same air with the Gangster Rappers is just fine with me! MOTH & I share the same wedding anniversary with the lovely Leigh over @ Brabourne Farm, so best wishes to you & Mr. Brabourne dear Leigh. It's the weekend, so go enjoy.
