Where do I start! New calling, new house, work experience! And the list goes on…
Last Sunday Morialta ward got a new Elders Quorum president, yep, Dallin!!! Dallin’s excited about it, and will hopefully have his counsellors sustained this week. He claims he has no idea what he’s doing but I’m sure he’ll do a wonderful job. I mean one of the first things he did after being sustained was orgainse for a few of the Elders Quorum to come and help us move on Tuesday, which was great!
The move wasn’t too bad…..I was pretty busy through the last week of term and so didn’t get any of the packing done until Monday afternoon, when mum came and helped which was wonderful, as we weren’t getting anywhere by ourselves! So we moved on Tuesday and pretty much just put everything in the lounge room, which was full by the time everything was in there. After everything was moved we stayed back at the unit to clean through it ready for the new occupants!
Dallin had an interview today at one of the government departments (Dept of land, water and biodiversity conservation) for some work experience. As part of the course he’s doing at uni he has to have 6 weeks full time (or equivalent) work experience in the field. He contacted some of the guys in our ward who did the same or similar degree and he has managed to get some work experience with them, which is great. He starts next week and will just work Wednesday mornings and Thursdays until uni finishes then he’ll probably do 3 full days each week, and work at State Supply the other couple of days… but we will see how it goes.
That’s about all for updates, so here’s a story for you all……
A few months back Dallin noticed that when you turned the fan on in the bathroom it made a funny noise and then seemed to stop, so we decided we should stop using the fan because it was broken. A few weeks later we took the cover off the fan and realised that it was working. It made a funny noise when starting up but other than that it was working perfectly. So we started using the fan again. A week or so after that one day Dallin turned the fan on and it made a cracking, thwacking sound and then silence. So again we stopped using the fan. The day before we moved we decided to take the cover off again and have another look. So Dallin took the cover off, I came in to have a look and we both looked up and went ‘IT’S GONE!’ So the cracking, thwacking sound (thanks Dallin for the accurate sound effects) we assume was the fan flying off into space… Or atleast the roof anyway. The issue is yet to be resolved….
