Tired

Last night was a birthday party for Ben at Shogun which was nice, except for when the dude missed my mouth and the egg landed on my finger and burnt it :(  Otherwise a nice night.  Then a bunch of us headed back to Kit's for a few drinks which was also a bit of fun.

Today I spent most of the day at Christine's helping her paint cupboards and doors, mount doors, move tallboys, wash up etc.  It makes me tired just thinking about how much work she has to do in the next couple of weeks.

Tonight the sweetie cooked dinner and I started dismantling Zac's Lego.

We also watched William Shatner's 2011 documentary "The Captains" which was kinda cool.  And more Star Trek.  We're half way through season two now.  Tonight's episode was *yet another* episode where the mission seems to be "to seek out new life and destroy it".  Honestly at least every second episode (maybe more) they find some new life and destroy it.  Craziness.  

Cool

Oh did I mention we got evaporative cooling installed during the week?  Should make summers here a *lot* more bearable.

Tonight I finally finished building all Zac's Lego sets.  Fun times.  Now to document it all..

Other weekend stuff included watching Top Gun on Friday night and Star Trek First Contact on Saturday night (we'd just watched Metamorphosis with Zefram Cochrane so were inspired), as well as repotting some of my plants that needed some love.

Last Friday night us and Ben went over to Serena's for a bbq which was all very pleasant.

Saturday was election day so we went and got our democracy sausages.  We also voted.  At the Federal elections we went at 5pm, didn't get a sausage, and queued way out the door.  For the local election we went at lunch time and didn't queue at all.  And got a sausage.

Last Saturday night Kit had an end-of-uni party, although Stu's last essay was due the following Monday so he had to take it easy.  I had a bit of a late night but it was all fun.

Monday Chris Bell (Ding) was in town, so we caught up for lunch.

Nothing much of note to report lately.  

Had a weekend at the club for one of the long weekends.  Stu worked on his assignment and Heather, Lynn and I cleaned out the office.  It looks sooo much better now!

Had a bit of a walk last week to try and get the step count up.  Saw cool skies and fairy rings of flowers and swanlings.

Had a dinner with the sweetie at Pappa Rich in town last week which was nice enough.

Popped into Kit's when we got home.  Chloe was there with her new iPhone 7 which does take pretty good low light photos

Last weekend had a dinner at EffanC's and Scott came too and we just chatted all evening which was nice.

Other than that, I finished sorting Lego and picking out pieces for all the sets.  Now I'm putting them all together.  Fun times.
