Saturday I started gluing things into my holiday scrapbook.  Until I ran out of glue.

So then I started trying to organise my tax paperwork but decided it was all too hard, so thought I'd start with an easier job - digitising my tax paperwork starting from 1996.  Hrmm.  Did about seven years worth before the scanner needed a rest.

In the evening we watched some Voyager and then we watched The Third Man, which had been mentioned in an episode we saw the other night of Anthony Bourdain's No Reservations set in Vienna (Viennese people sure love their pork!).  And it went on the Riesenrad, which we'd been on, so we had to watch it :)  Interesting movie, a little slow to get going but picked up at the end, and who killed the porter??

Today I wanted to do more paperwork sorting and work on my new blog, but didn't end up doing any of that.  Instead I cleaned the oven.  Hurrah.  And did some fish tank stuff and did some food shopping and cleaned and cooked and cleaned.  And my hands aren't very happy with me.

And in the What The files.. I was feeding Stu's fish and they got so excited that the smaller siamensis rocketed out of the tank and went flying over and out and landed under Stu's comfy chair.  Had to rescue it and put it back in the tank!  Silly fish!

Yesterday we went out to the club for a Christmas in July lunch.  As usual there was a feast of food thanks to R&T and A&J.

And then.. it snowed!!

Club Christmas in July

That was pretty exciting :)

Afterwards we debated staying the night, but the sweetie had some work to do for uni, so we came home, as he thought it'd be easier to do at home.  That, and it was *freezing* out there.*

This morning there was still snow on the mountains out past Queanbeyan.

Snow

There probably would have been snow on the Brindabellas too, but we didn't leave the house all day, so we didn't see.

Bit of house tidying today, and then my tax man came to sort out my tax.

And so endeth the weekend.

* Freezing in the both literal (snow) and figurative (feels like) senses of the word, for people that want to complain.

Saturday was so totally a teaser.  25C or something, just delightful.  Then back to cold and wet and miserable.

After ten years e-tax is *finally* resizable!!  Sheesh, how hard could it have been?  But as per usual, every year I get something that makes my tax complicated.  Like this year, the very trivial closing off an old mortgage and starting it up with another lender.  Blah.  

Friggen!

I did my tax the other week but didn't actually submit it.

So went to do it tonight and realised the password (and all previous tax returns) are in a box at the new house.

*sigh*
