He Had Lots of Guts

Tuesday I snapped this.  Just pointed my phone at the ground and snapped.  Autumn sure is pretty in Canberra.

In the evening I managed to catch up with all of Monday's photo labelling as well as Tuesday's so that was a pretty good effort.

Wednesday evening I finished labelling St Maarten.  Three nights to do one day.  Five hundred photos.  hrmm. 

In bed I usually play some Candy Crush til I run out of lives - usually about ten minutes worth, sometimes longer if the "bot" boosters get me on a roll.  But I reached a point at level 4602 where suddenly you couldn't restart the game to get a better starting board.  This is critical to game progression, even more so with boosters.  If you don't get the right combo of boosters to begin with they're actually often pretty useless.  And the single most effective start in most levels is a two colour-bomb combo.  So this change of game play destroyed my will to play it.  I'm still logging on every day to get the daily boosters, but if this change isn't reverted at the next update I probably won't play it anymore.

Thursday we watched the first episode of MacGyver that had Jack Dalton in it.  Love that guy haha.

Friday was the last day of May so the last of Rashay's $5 lunches.  I went back to the calamari which they can get right, I wasn't going to give them a third chance to fail on the steak.

Friday evening we watched On Her Majesty's Secret Service.  They filmed a Christmas festival in Switzerland and there was Raclette!  And Gluhwein!  Sooo need to do Christmas in Switzerland one year.  I also totally need to go to Piz Gloria, which was the fictional name of the building, under construction at the time of the filming of the movie.  The film production contributed to the completion of the building, and they kept the name forevermore (there's even a James Bond exhibition there!)

Saturday morning I woke up at 5:44.  Gave up trying to get anymore sleep around 6:30 and got up.  Had a busy early morning getting all the housework done.  The rest of the day was just photo filing and Lego picking.  I might have used up the last of the puff pastry to cook more cheese and vegemite scrolls for lunch.

In the evening I didn't feel like cooking so the sweetie ordered Chong Co delivery.  Not too bad delivered.  Then we watched The Incredibles 2, which I last (and first) saw on the plane between Tokyo and Hong Kong at the end of last year.

Today was pretty much just Lego picking all day.  All weekend I managed just six sets.  Surprisingly a couple of them were actually complete, which has been super rare for this collection.

Alternative to beer or wine

We haven't been food shopping so dinner was a case of what could we find left to cook.  I went and got some cream and cooked bacon, garlic, onion and mushrooms with cream and cheese and pasta.  The sweetie went back for seconds so it must have been ok.

I think I had a bit too much salt this evening though.  Whoops.
