He met his Waterloo

So Monday.  Sick.  Had a bit of a lie in, but again no extra sleep.  Blobbed around.  Watched New Moon, which was pretty lame, and the start of Eclipse, which was a little better.

Realised I had fifteen different cheeses in the fridge.  Plus powdered parmesan in the pantry and some colby jack in the freezer.  To be fair some of those were nearly empty, or just different brands for the same thing.

This is not quite as good as with the thick toast, but still pretty darned awesome.

Tuesday I worked from home, although I really should have taken an extra day off.  Even though I was just *sitting* so not physically exerting myself, the drain on my brain was a bit much.  Watched the end of Eclipse and Breaking Dawn Part 1 in the evening.

Wednesday was starting to feel better, but worked from home again.  Watched the start of Breaking Dawn Part 2.

Back at work on Thursday.  Watched end of Breaking Dawn Part 2.  After Twilight which was ok, New Moon was pretty lame, and they slowly got better as the series went along.  Also talked to Mum and Chrissie (which was a bit random - she'd gone up to help clear out Diana and Graham's house and pick up a few things she'd given them over the years, and was staying with Mum).

Friday a bunch of us went over to Doc's for drinks after work which was all very pleasant.  He certainly has a great entertaining space.  I showed Stu an aerial view of the house and he said "that's not a house, it's a complex" hehe.

Saturday Nat and Andrew came over for hanami lunch, although the petals were mostly all gone from the tree.

Watched A View to a Kill in the evening.

Sunday was a nice home catchup day, doing All The Things.  Went to the markets in the afternoon to pick up a few things.  Turns out takoyaki man is there on Sunday afternoons (or at least he was yesterday) but Stu wouldn't buy me any booo

Got frustrated with the George Harcourt trying to book Kit's hen's night.  I'd tried to call on Friday but the first thing they say is they have an online booking system now.  So I had a look but there's only "indoor" or "outdoor" but Kit wants to specifically book the little room at the end of the restaurant.  So I called again on Saturday.  They really really don't want to talk to you though.  They say if you need to book "today or tonight" to press 1.  For all other enquiries press 2 to leave a message.  Or to book a function call a mobile number, which they rattled off really quickly without repeating so I had to call back to get it.  So I called that mobile number.  And had to leave a message.  I fricken HATE the phone so this caused me all kinds of stress.  And I still haven't managed to book the place.  

Watched The Living Daylights in the evening.  During the movie my phone died.  Just wouldn't respond to any touch or key press. Plugged it in for a while but still nothing.  My usual trick of holding the volume down and unlock button didn't work.  Eventually I googled and one thing to try was volume up, volume down, hold unlock button.  I tried that but it didn't work.  Tried it again later and fortunately it did.  Very upsetting though.

And there we are, finally caught up.
