Good Day

Had a lovely day today. The type of weekend day that you should have every weekend. Snuggling with the love of your life, going for a drive to little country towns, taking cool photos, watching Star Trek, going shopping, cooking nice food, watching movies, drinking wine and mint baileys, and going to bed with the love of your life.

Grumpy day today. Grumpy with people. Grumpy with servers. Grumpy at not getting enough of the boy all day. At least one thing worked in the end with the server I was working on. Would have been annoying and time consuming to fix if it hadn't worked.

  • Got pissed off at the games club at work, to the point where I lost patience that night and left early in disgust
  • The boy arrived and it was soooooo good to see him
  • Slept in
  • Wandered down to the shopping centre to get breakfast/coffee/supplies for the evening meal
  • Bought Stu some cyps (can't remember what sort) and some multifasciatus (over $200 worth of fish all up)
  • Kept the fish alive all weekend in eskys on my desk with a fan heater and airstones
  • Got some guppies Stu brought up with him
  • Guppies were almost all dead by Sunday night, only one left now
  • Watched Toy Story
  • Watched several episodes of Star Trek
  • Had some lovely ling fillets and fresh asparagus in hollondaise sauce that Stu cooked up
  • Patched servers
  • Trekked out to the beach for lunch and a walk
  • Took lots of touristy photos at the beach
  • Hung my Hogwarts lego mosaic on my bedroom wall
  • Got incredibly frustrated with my dodgy-brothers dvd which has some electrical fault in it
  • Watched A Bug's Life
  • Tried the Dominos garlic and cheese high top crust, which wasn't as good as other crust offerings (specifically the cheese and bacon one)
  • Watched more Star Trek
  • Got very sad over all the dead guppies
  • Said a sad goodbye to the boy
  • Patched more servers
  • Bewildered over the dvd that was being dodgy all weekend, then decided to start working perfectly for a while
  • Watched all the special features on the Bug's Life dvd
  • Waited for word that the boy arrived home safely .......

    So have been working on my flylady control journal. Completed my evening routine (that's downloading emails, reading blogs, cleaning my desk, feeding the fish, downloading my photos, putting the washing away, cooking dinner and washing up from dinner) by 6:30pm (!!?!??!!)

    Which left my entire evening free. Which was very cool. Vacuumed the flat (just a quickie, no more than ten minutes work there), then not sure where the rest of the evening went. Mostly on backing up my computer I think heh.

    Friday tomorrow.. yayyy

    Chicken Kiev I had for lunch the other day

    Dinner though was much nicer. Alan and Marylon returned from a long trip away, so a belated first of the month dinner. ... mmmmm roast pork again .. you can never have too much roast pork :):)

    And on that note, I'm off to go talk to the boy :)

    urgh. sick of being sick.
    Starting to get better.. I think... although only had four hours sleep last night on account of not being able to breathe :(
    Think will make an attempt at an early night (although Luc reckons sometimes there's not much point going to bed early if you're just going to toss and turn - may as well stay up until collapse from exhaustion) ...
    or something...

    So went to work today. Got done what I wanted to do (I think). Although dcdiag showed some strange things I have to look into.

    Jodi told me I should have stayed home. She will be most put out if she gets sick for her long weekend away. As will Sarah and Craig.....

    Then had an impromptu farewell for Campbell tonight. He is leaving for England on Saturday. We all hope. :) If not there'll be a bunch of us dragging him kicking and screaming to the airport and putting him on a plane.. heh


    adsl is back *finally* (well I had the borrowed modem for a week and half, but that only allowed one computer to connect to the net, my modem lets me connect all of them and my netphone). So I'm most pleased about that :)

    Second day at home. I hate being sick. Have I ever mentioned that?
    Spent most of the day in bed wishing I could just fall asleep. But alas, no such luck.
    Have to go back to work tomorrow. Otherwise need to go get a doctor's certificate. So will take some Codral and soldier on....

    Had to go back to work today. A thoroughly depressing thought after such a lovely weekend. But instead of reading, I decided to *do*.. and setup a little active directory domain on some old computers, with dhcp and everything. Tomorrow I will turn on firewalls and watch to see what breaks..... heh

    Came home and got a few bits and pieces done, although not any unpacking, which was the only thing I actually had planned to do tonight. Oops. But I did get last week's washing put away, does that count..? :)

    Am feeling like I'm having an immune response. Lots of sick people at work. Worried I'm coming down with something. Took a C/echinacea/Zinc/Garlic tablet and will have some more tomorrow... and an early night tonight....

    I swear weekends aren't long enough.

    Had another lovely day today. Slept late. Had brekky followed by lunch not too long after. Got lots of tidying done. Watched Lost in Translation on dvd. Went to Scott and Kerry's. Had the most amazing slow-cooked roast pork (and a plum sauce I made from scratch from very overripe plums). Watched some Star Trek. And tried the limited edition Baileys with mint, which tastes just like when I make it with Creme de Menthe heh :)

    And sadly yet another weekend comes to an end. Don't wanna go to work tomorrow *bwwwwaaaahhhh*

    Busy day

    (That's Stu's title for today's entry heh)

    Well we had a decent sleepin which was nice, although I had a little wine with dinner last night and that was still in the system during the night which made my sleep a little restless). Had some breakfast then did some tidying in the kitchen and before we knew it the hoardes had descended on us for lunch. This in itself is almost a tradition now :) Took plenty more cute photos of the kids. After everyone left we did some more tidying up, getting Stu's house in order some more from the move, putting books into shelves etc. Did some food shopping and then got kebabs for dinner, before putting all the shopping away and going to see Cars. And now I think it's tomorrow... :)
