Saturday morning I gave away the fridge from the caravan that never worked on 240V. One less piece of clutter in the house!
Then we headed out to the club. I chatted to Chris and helped de-nail fence palings in the morning, and helped with the working bee (more de-nailing of fence palings) in the afternoon.
Came home and were all set for a quiet night in, started watching Back to the Future, then Kit invited us down. Serena had brought Jenga Quake. Which was my third variation of Jenga this week. At work they have an original set. At the club there's a much bigger set. Quake has plastic bricks which have less friction so are a little easier to pull out. But we didn't use the quake platform cause that's just silly. Stayed up a bit too late annoying the neighbours by singing along to seventies music.
Today I barely did anything on the todo list. Best I could manage was to clean the kitchen. Did our food shopping, cooked/ate dinner, went for walkies with Chrissie then finished watching Back to the Future.
So got home from Mum's in time for dinner Tuesday night.
Wednesday night we went to Beijing House at Hawker shops with EffanC. We got some dumplings, but after being spoilt by dumplings at Din Tai Fung in Taipei and Sydney, these were chunky and dry and boring. Not terrible, just not great either. The service was pretty bad though that night, it took them *forever* to bring out our entrees, then the mains came out straight away. And they misheard one of our orders, which fortunately they didn't have, so we didn't end up with a dish we didn't want. And in the end it was probably a good thing as we were totally full anyway. Did a big food shop, then went back to their place for a nightcap on the way home.
Thursday I had a quiet night organising freecycle crap.
Friday was our floor party that I organised. Thirty seven people (minus a couple that didn't show up). Ate and drank just about everything and I think they day went pretty well.
Came home and put flocculent in the pool, then watched Air Crash Investigations and Die Hard (I think our disk is faulty - it dies at a spot in the middle, and I think I remember having the same problem last time we watched it.
Today I was up early and emptied the car from the final trip to Sydney. Organised all the freecycle crap that's here for people to collect.
Half way through the day and already have done lots of organising, two loads of washing, made up the spare room bed, and tidied two rooms.
Still a long way to go though to get the house looking presentable...
Last night I posted all mum's stuff to the Canberra Freecycle group. And got a much better response than from the Sydney south one. The new Sydney Freecycle is hopeless. It loses mails and I can't get it to send more than a daily digest. So I'm not surprised if other Sydney freecyclers have given up on it.
So tonight we filled up my little car full of tables, mounted prints, paper, boxes, boxes, boxes, *bits*, more *bits* and *stuff*.
One more week of this nonsense then I'm not going anywhere for a long time.
Today alternated between crazy busy and waiting for people to do things.
Tonight we freecycled the old amp and speakers (the dude was a bit dubious about the speakers) then had lamb roast for dinner. Then out to Mum's new flat (she got her keys today) to drop off the tv cabinet, china cabinet and mirror. We built the china cabinet (mostly, need a hammer to finish it off) and suddenly it's like 9pm. Grunt. So came home to sort through freecycle and ebay emails (the freezer sold for $200, the tallboy $5.50, go figure) and realised I haven't done any of the sorting I wanted to do downstairs. Sigh.
Too tired for this crap (even though I got a really good night's sleep last night).
