Credit Where Credit's Due...

it's a rainy old monday...
another dull winter's day you  may say
but today there is good news to broadcast to family and friends.

mr t passed all of his first semester subjects at uni
and we're very proud of his accomplishment.

as an encouragement to others out there
who may not know him...
he left school after year 10
and studied hospitality at tafe
never dreaming that he would ever go to uni.

after six years of slavery in the kitchens of oz
he injured his back
and couldn't do his cheffy work anymore.

deciding to retrain and get a job where he didn't have to be standing all day
he did a bridging course at tafe
to get qualified for entry into uni
to do a computer graphics course...
he is now in his first year and has passed the semester with credits...yay!!

this photo is one that he took in late autumn
from our front doorstep looking across the road to the west...
aren't the colours amazing?

it is the first day back at school for most queensland kids today
i wish you all the success in the world too...

happy studying!
