How was your day dear?: April 2009 Archives

Weekend away

Had rather a late start on Saturday.  We headed out around 12pm to do our shopping, but of course being Anzac Day, shops weren't open til 1pm.. not even Coles (which I thought might have opened round 12).  So had to waste a bit of time before doing our shopping.  Stocked up on supplies, came home, got ready, and eventually headed out the door round 3:50pm. 

Had a nice easy drive down to the coast, arriving just after 6pm.  Whereupon it was decided it was beer o'clock.  We cooked a store-bought quiche for dinner (I mustn't have been with real men ;) ).  Eventually got in the spa and stayed there for the next five or so hours.  Ooops.  :)  DC mostly kept up with me drinking-wise.  Not quite, but I was still impressed :)

Quiche (3.6 servings per package??? who divides quiches up like that??)

Bottlecaps Mine, DC's and Stu's efforts (one Quadruppel beer is the same alcohol content as two heinekens)

Sunday was a bit of a sleepin (as you do).  Spent a good chunk of the day doing a jigsaw of Neil's.  And later played some Super Mario Galaxy.  It was ok, but was really only one player so not as much fun (oh, played a bit of Lego Star Wars too, but really don't *get* it). 

Malua Bay

Dinner was a lamb roast with lots of veggies, and our wedding cake for dessert.  And a Mount Majura Pinot Gris, which was very fruity.  Watched Mythbusters and Iron Chef and Rockwiz and then fell asleep when Dave put on Keating the Musical.  So abanoned that and got in the spa.  Where we turned off the lights and sat and just watched all the stars.  Was extraordinarily pretty.  Stu and Dave saw the same shooting star, but I missed out :(  Was determined to stay there til I saw one, but in the end Dave wanted Ben to get some sleep, so I got booted :)

Today we played some Mario Kart, went for a walk then cleaned up, and left for home.  Dumped our stuff then headed straight back out again, this time to Ding's for a very civilised dinner.  He'd been cooking up a storm all afternoon - he did a pretty amazing paella with mussells and calamari and prawns and crab and chicken and saffron.  Jo also did a highly nomorific salad.  Definitely ate far too much :)  And had some Mount Majura Pinot Noir.  And then there was dessert.  !!  Definitely need to have more dinner parties.  Need to get a dining table...

Anyways.  So that was the weekend.  Think I need a weekend to recover from my weekend...

Headed out to Yass tonight because an old friend of the family was in town.  Annie made some yummy pizzas and a scrumptious nectarine crumble.  Still feeling fairly full :)

Blah de blah

Got the house a bit tidier.  Cleaned the kitchen only to mess it up again (although not too badly) for dinner.  Watched some House.  Read hundreds of news feeds, but still have thousands to go.  Dusted and vacuumed.  Have no idea what is attracting the meeces. 

Not much else to report.  Boring day really.

  • work was very unsettling this week
  • had to go in to rebuild a server last night.. was very sleepie, but at least the overtime money will be good
  • on call again.  One week in three is too often IMHO
  • watched STIV: The Voyage Home tonight.  One of my favourite Star Trek movies.  It was more similar to the book than the other movies had been, but there was still more detail about some things in the book
  • house is a mess, hope to clean it up somewhat this weekend
  • cooked a yummy pasta dinner tonight with these scrummy portabella mushrooms
  • we need a real server that we can attach the skype phone to and have decent storage
  • Stu needs new batteries for his UPS

It was a little dusty this arvo...

So dusty, couldn't see Mount Ainslie from home..

Put on the pool cover, and can see what the previous owner meant about it being almost more trouble than it's worth..

I told myself I was going to go to bed early tonight and read some of Stu's book club book.

But after algaeciding the pool, doing washing, cleaning bathrooms, cooking dinner, rotating photos, opening all my snail mail, watching House, unpacking, reading news feeds, downloading bank statements, figuring out what was on bank statements and generally running my poor little puta out of memory, it's suddenly 10:37pm.  Doh!!

The pool is nearly overflowing from the rain today, which is somewhat annoying since I spent ages yesterday topping it up.  Be a major waste of water if it does overflow.

I'm nearly half way through looking at all my photos of the trip and rotating the vertical ones.

Now really must go to bed, since I have a bit of a sore throat, and getting sick again now would be no fun whatsoever...
