There are a lot of exciting things happening right now - yes the new house is VERY exciting and we are LOVING it, but that post will be saved for tomorrow when I can take some decent photos. The other exciting thing was that our internet was put back on today - after only TWO days!! Can you believe that!!?
But the REALLY exciting news today, was that I got a phone call from the 'competition line' (or something like that) on my mobile phone. The lady said she was ringing me about the photographic competition I entered, and said she had a few questions to ask me. My heart starting racing a million miles a minute, as I realised the questions she asked me were the same questions they asked me a couple of years ago when I won the local 'Smile' photo competition...Are you an Australian resident? Did you take the photo yourself? Do you or any of your family work for Centro?
I quickly told her the answers and then she said 'congratulations - you got 4th place in over 100 photos!'. I was so excited, especially when she wanted to confirm my address to send me a cheque for $500! I can't wait to jump on the website tomorrow to see which photo won and which other ones placed, as there were so many awesome photos. I can't help but wonder how close I was to coming third (where the prize money would've been $1000) but I'm thrilled to first of all have been selected in the top 100, and then to come 4th in the people's choice.
Thank you SO much to everyone who voted for my photo 'Assistant Coach'.
