Wow, I would like to congratulate Melbourne Ice on winning the AIHL 2010 Hockey Championship Grand Final today over Adelaide Adrenaline, they won 6 to 4 and blew the roof off the Ice House today. What a fabulous game.
What a awesome performance and season, congratulations to the team, coaches and support team. What a great game, which is so competitive and hardly fought, its given me great inspiration, to keep fighting and never give up.

Its been a while since I posted, but I have been off to Singapore this month for a business trip to meet my work colleagues from Japan, Thailand, Indonesia, China, Singapore and USA. It was great to meet them, we had a fantastic team building exercise where we painted on a blank cavas I must say it was fantastic fun, I will dig out the pic and post it, and I work with a great team of characters who love to have fun and work of course. This was my first visit to Singapore. For those who have not been there, its a lovely clean place, no litter in sight, lots of shopping for those who want to (designer brands galore), a fabulous place to go out wining and dining. The weather hot and humid. All in all a great trip. Back to reality now!
Yes I have been making bears fantically in the meantime, I haven't dropped the ball there so too speak!!!!! Argghhhh yes its finals time in baseball here in Melbourne and we are sure loving it.
Putting the finishing touches to my lovely new design!!!!! Can't wait to finish it I am so proud!
Well it was back to work this week after the holiday break (11 days off), it took me the second day to get back into the swing, its amazing isn't it. Hahhhhahhhh back into it and goals to set for 2010. On the bear front hoping to produce some smaller designs and some more realistic critters, well thats my grand plan... Maybe even a Wombat, here's hoping I know they are quite different aren't they!!!!.....
