Carousel

Friday night I got stuck at work til nearly 8pm, so the sweetie came and picked me up and we got takeaway from the Dumpling Inn.

Saturday was mostly just house cleaning.  Kirili came over for beer and pizza and check out what she brought me!  (she must have heard about how I was drooling all over the one she has on her desk at work that I saw last time I visited Stu there).

We talked a lot about travel (she's only like 25, but has spent months and months travelling the world on various trips - way cool!), had a super yummy pizza from Crust, and just watched some tv.

Today was mostly trip planning.  Roasted some veggies for dinner, including some stuff from Kath's farm.

Happy's and a jab

Had the first vaccination shot before the holiday today.  Followed by dinner at Happy's.  Because I wanted meat.  Lots of red meat.

Cycled (slowly) for an hour.  And did my washing.  And ran the pool.  And did some holiday research and other bits and pieces. 

Not the most productive of Mondays, but not too bad I suppose.

Seems to be a bad habit I'm getting into.. 

So yeah.  Work.  Busy.  Slightly insane actually, and only going to get worse in the next little while :(

Friday arvo went to the Wig and Pen with Tristan and Gaelian.  And got absolutely drenched in the downpour on the way back to the car.  

Saturday.  All day at work (from 5:30am!).  Was there really just to keep an eye on things since our monitoring was down.  So used the opportunity to make good progress on the trivia night.  So the morning was all good, but there were problems in the afternoon and people disappeared before they were fixed which was not happy making.  In the end I passed things off and went home, as was going out for dinner.  

Went to Josh and Ally's for dinner.  They're in stumbling distance which is pretty cool.  Had a lovely roast chicken dinner, and fell in love with their cat Rosie - a "burmilla" - half burmese half chinchilla.  Friendliest cat I've ever met.  Totally wanted to take her home.

Today was a bit of a slow start.  Did a bit of holiday research, but really not much today.  Went to Annie's for a bit to help fix their internet.  

Definitely need more weekend.  Felt completely robbed on Saturday.  Missed out on seeing Potty and the family who came over in the afternoon.  Or going to Jindabyne with a group of people from work.  Le sigh.
Whoops.. haven't posted since last Tuesday.. yipes...

Pretty uneventful week.  I think.  I think I was pretty busy at work.  I counted up my todo list and realised I'm in the middle of thirteen different projects at the moment.  Yikes.

This weekend I had a relatively productive Saturday.  Well sort of.  Did a few days of UK photo sorting.  And a bit of cleaning.  And some work.  And mostly cleared news feeds.  But mostly jigsaw.

Saturday night we went to Mishi's for our semi-regular catchup/games night, which was lovely as always.  First we played Pass the Popcorn (Thrills and Chills Edition).  Which would have been more fun as the regular edition.  I don't know enough about "scary" movies.  Then we played Way Back When in History, which was an American history board game where you answer questions and move your way around the board.  Most of the questions were completely basic, but a few things we'd never heard of.  I think Stu and I won in the end.  It wasn't very well thought through in terms of game play (well maybe it was, but the instructions certainly didn't help).  Like it said if you land on someone's token move to the next available space.  But there were some spaces that were "go back one space". But if someone was there you would end up in an infinite loop.  Silly.

Today was pretty much just jigsaw all morning.  And went and saw Excalibur at the Film and Sound archives (which I quite enjoyed, despite a faded and dirty print).  And went to Dumpling Inn for dinner.  And did our food shopping.  Might have gone to the multicultural festival but Stu was not up for crowds of people.

So this is the jigsaw.  Nearly finished.  Maybe a couple of hundred pieces left.  Should knock it over tomorrow.  Then can get back to regularly scheduled programming..

Manic Monday?

ok day at work.

Came home and in two hours had run and chlorinated the pool, put washing away, done a load of washing, cleaned the bathroom, done some jigsaw, had dinner and cleaned the kitchen.

Did a bit more jigsaw.  Today I did the balloons and the rainbow.

But also did some trivia night planning.

So a pretty successful night all up.

So I was meant to be doing trivia night planning and holiday planning and UK photo sorting.

I did the jigsaw most of the weekend.
This is the next 6000 pieces sorted into sections

And this is my progress as of this evening (can't really see much in this photo)

The only other event of the weekend was meeting up with @phonakins and @chrispycon (and Rish and Richard) for drinks at King O'Malley's, followed by dinner at Asian Noodle House.  No documentary evidence (although I might steal Fiona's photos of the meal one day), but it was a great night.

Sound of Friday

Hardly got any sleep last night.  Maybe a couple of hours.  Stoopid body.

As a consequence didn't have a very productive day.

Was going to go to bed early, but The Sound of Music was on after Glee, and well it had to be watched.. oops..

Still, got lots of pieces sorted for the jigsaw.  Probably nearly half way through sorting ...
