It's been a busy few months and we're still awaiting any visible action on our square patch of land while Eleonor and I have started repaying our loan for that expensive piece of dirt.
The good news in the house arena is that we had our colour consultation and everything's been taken care of in that area - at least for now. I'd just really love to see something start happening on our piece of land. I'm sure it will go very quickly from there!
First Solo... again!
In more exciting aviation training news, yesterday (12/09/09) I flew my first Training Area solo flight. I was due to have this flight a few weeks ago but as has become the norm in my flight training there were a few loose ends.
Anyway, I was finally able to get out there yesterday in great weather and even accomplished a smile bringing 'roll on' landing (basically, one you don't feel!) It's nice to keep the progress going with Proflite and let's see where we go from here. More solos I think!
Star Trek to our Ears
Last week, Dad, Eleonor and myself went to the Sydney Opera House to feast our ears on Star Trek music played by the Sydney Symphony Orchestra. In an excellent concert which began with classical pieces from 2001: A Space Odyssey, Mars, The Bringer of War and Transformers we were then treated to a piece of music from each of the Star Trek films, including the new 2009 release. Nothing beats hearing an orchestra played live in full song and I think it might even have spiked some interest in Trek from Eleonor as well :)
Walk Like an Egyptian
With our house purchase going forward and hoping for that to finish up some time early next year, Eleonor and I have also committed to treating ourselves to a holiday which was on special. We'll be exploring the wonders of Egypt next May which should be an excellent trip and allow us to explore a unique part of the world. Can't wait!
More updates, as and when they come.
