Work Travel again

I am spending this week travelling with work..... travelling from Kilmore to Axedale, middle to West Victoria.  This trip involves me conducting pre-audit meetings with Managers and then assisting them when Karen, an external auditor from Lloyds, actually audits them against WorkSafe Victoria criteria.  So these audits are focussing on our Safety committments within Hanson.  14 in all - this week will see number 9 and 10 completed.

I never thought that I would like auditing as I have not had much exposure to it and had already formed a negative opinion.  BUT I love it.... it's a fantastic way for me to learn more about all parts of our business and for those that know me - know that I love to ask questions.

It was a beautiful day in Axedale today.... the sun shone lifting the ice from the ground.  The audit went well with no issues recorded.

We went for a walk around - of course I cannot resist photos.
Making big rocks into little rocks.....

The crushing plant.....

This is one of our little Tonka's....... a baby 50 tonne Dump Truck who is in the workshop as it has blown a turbo..... waiting to be fixed.

Have I ever told you guys that I love my job?? Well I DO!!!

Due to the early finish we (Karen and I) decided to travel back to Kilmore and stay the night guaranteeing us a little sleep in and no long drive to site in the morning.

Destination: Kilmore Motel

It's an older style motel but it's clean and has a comfy bed plus Vivienne always makes you feel welcome :)

A blast from the past......................... trust me a surprise!!

Sunday always bring a full day during football season and this week was no different.  Except that we had 5 games - ALL teams - playing at home plus of course dinner service.

Happily serving in the canteen I here a "Look at you gorgeous!!".  I turned around only imagining a customer talking to one of the other mam's helping out to find my cousin Speedy standing there. 

Childhood memories flashed through my mind, remembering some special and sad moments that I had actually thought I had forgotten as I have grown.

With all going on, the surprise catch up was the highlight of my day.......

Nana's birthday.....

We all celebrated Nana's 68th birthday tonight even though her actual birthday is on Monday.  We went to the Seaford Hotel for dinner, which I will have to say that the meals were very average with one meal, a lamb souvlaki even turning up without the lamb!

As usual great to catch up with Mam and Dad.  It seems so long between time spent together.  They come to watch their grandchildren play football but with our commitments it's very hard to spend time with them.

Wonderful to see Sean, Vicky and the boys again.  Sadly we don't see them enough either.

Thankfully we surprised Mam with a decadent birthday cake I cannot take credit for.  It was an "Original Sin" from the Cheesecake Shop but it brought smiles to Mam's face.

Most of the Murray clan........

4 of her precious grandchildren......
