Tired

| | Comments (0)

Got something in my eye this morning and it wouldn't go away.  It seriously felt like someone was poking me in the eye for three hours straight.  Made it very hard to concentrate.  My eyes are very tired now.

After a few short weeks in a row, this whole going every day thing is a little hard! ;)

We did have a very quiet weekend.  I was going to say I didn't leave the house, but I did go get some supplies, and climb a mountain on Sunday morning before Stu was even awake.

Other than that it was just All The Things.

We caught this spider back in April in our van.  I think she's a wolf spider.  With babies!

These things have been accumulating all year.

Wednesday night was a work trivia night.

We won.

Again.

Although we got a reprieve - before they announced first and second place they said that as an incentive to actually win, they were going to make the second place getters run the next one.  hehehe :)

Last night was bbq at Serena's for her birthday which was attended by her housemates and Anita.  Was pretty fun but didn't have a late night which was good.

Today is just doing all the things, although I've been going a bit slowly so not getting All The Things done, just some of them.

Long Weekend. Again.

I could get used to them.

Friday took a random day off and got things done.  Mostly planning and tax type stuff.  And got the pool looked at.  And went food shopping.  Watched Star Trek Into Darkness in the evening.

Saturday was more of the same.  In the afternoon went to Casey Jones for Wello's 40th birthday drinks/snacks thing which was quite nice. Stu had been out at the club and was originally planning to stay the night but decided to come home.  So we went to Scott's where the N-Gang was all having pizza.  Unfortunately it was a super late night as these nights often are.  

So was pretty tired all day today.  Got stuff done in the morning though (including loading up the green bin and more tax stuff).  Spent several hours in the afternoon watching dad's WWII documentaries and finally finished checking Vic's Lego.  Just a little bit of filing of the last of the pieces and then it will be time to start collecting pieces to construct sets!

Watched Cheaper by the Dozen in a couple of parts over the weekend, and Finding Nemo tonight.

And in Better News..

Last night got eight hours of decent sleep, so was still tired this morning but felt a lot better.

And tonight I finished labelling our East Asia photos.  Really want to get photos into the blog by the end of the year.. see how I go...

Thursday night we started up watching through the next series of movies - the Pixar movies.  Except I only have ten out of the twenty of them on dvd/bluray.  I haven't even seen a few of the more recent ones.

So Thursday was Toy Story, Friday was A Bug's Life, Saturday was Toy Story 2 and Sunday was Monsters Inc.

Saturday I had a *super* productive day doing All The Things.  Sunday wasn't quite as productive but still got a lot done.

Sunday evening we had the leftover chocolate and cream with chocolate fondue for dessert.

Chocolate fondue for two

The last three nights I've had the *worst* insomnia.  Saturday at least I was able to get back to sleep for a little while in the morning.  But Sunday night I woke up at 2:20am and only got about three quarters of an hour more sleep.  Last night I woke up at 2:30am but *never* got back to sleep.  I was very tired on Monday and a complete zombie today.  Fun times.  Not.

Oh and yesterday I got swooped by a magpie for like the first time ever (except that one time I was with DC but I blame that on him cause he always gets swooped heh).  

Fondue!

Last week Aunty Di and Uncle Graham were in town, so went over to Chrissie's on Wednesday night for wine and fondue!

Grate up a bunch of gruyere and swiss cheese (Westfield Belconnen has NO delis now, so no emmental was to be had #epicfail #westfieldau).

Black Beauty

So a couple of months ago I watched the 1994 adaptation of Black Beauty and really enjoyed it.  So I dug out my mum's copy of the book by Anna Sewell and have been reading it before bed, finishing it the other night.  Short chapters which made for easy bed time reading.  It was actually really similar to the movie.  The movie had dropped the odd chapter here and there and there were a few minor differences, but otherwise quite close.  Maybe I'll get the sweetie to watch the movie with me some time.
