11:46pm: If only to use it for this entry in order to let you all know that the Mr Burns play was really cool! If a bit strange in the way all plays seem to be. It was a comedy though with lots of funny moments despite the post apocolyptic setting. Well worth seeing! :OD

Plus it was lots of fun hanging with my aunt, uncle and cousin, after the play we went to a pub to have dinner, which took ages to come but was most delicious.

Anyway...I see that I've got no time to actually update! Tsk, they've changed the Duolingo app so now you have to do the revision in a timed manner, speed is definitely not my strong suit - which I'm sure surprises none of you. :OP

So, yeah I gotta get my butt to bed, you know what happens when I don't get my zzzs!

I'll have a more complete report of things tomorrow...I hope.

Goodnight all!

11:16pm: Yes! The 15th Year Reunion of my class (or more accurately the 16th Year Reunion - we were always a bit late as a class) happened this evening.

Man, talk about a blast from the past! Most of the class didn't actually come alas (so many people live overseas these days, don't know what's up with that...), but a smaller number of people was probably best, because these sorts of functions get loud!

Anywho, I was somewhat surprised to find when I put the info in my phone of the location this afternoon and discovered it'd take me a good hour and a half to get there! Which meant I needed to leave pretty much as soon as the ice skating finished! I hadn't heard from my friend Micki on Facebook messenger, which was bad since I didn't have her mobile, so I decided to try and use the call function on it. Which worked, yay! And I found out that Micki and another old school friend of mine, Kelly, were over at Kelly's flat and planned to go to the Reunion by Uber. And as it turned out Kelly lives on the way to the city, so I was able to drive over to her place and join them for the ride in.

I hung out with the two of them at the flat for a bit, which was cool, especially since Kelly found a notebook that our friendship group had written in way back in Year 12. Man, memories! Although we all still look the same, LOL!

So we got the Uber in a bit late - the Reunion started at 5pm, but we didn't actually leave until closer to 5:30 at which point I wondered what the likelihood would be that everyone would remember my name, but I wouldn't remember any of theirs! (Because that's a serious issue of mine, LOL) My friends agreed they might also have this problem! The Uberdriver suggested we make a game of trying to guess, although as it happens, Micki won quite easily. I had lots of trouble because a number of classmates had dyed their hair, so their faces looked kinda familiar but I didn't even have their hair to go on!

But of course, everyone seemed to remember me (like I said, beats me why! Perhaps it's the loud voice - although one of the people there theorised it was because I walked home every afternoon past the rest of them at the bus stop so I was burned into their memories or something LOL). My two friends and I mostly stuck together but we did end up talking to most people, although there were a few I didn't get around to, ironically one was perhaps the only person's whose names I remembered! Ah well.

However! In what was probably a sign of my impending old age, I found myself feeling pretty sleepy by the time the reunion officially end at 9pm. Most of the group moved to a pub next door, I went with them initially figuring that Kelly and I would catch an Uber back to her place, but she was planning to stay out quite late, whilst I also have grandpa's party and work tomorrow! So, I decided to leave, except I had only brought $10 along! Well, $13...

Micki though, gave me twenty-one bucks (I need to shout a meal or something when she gets back - she lives up in Queensland at the moment) and I was able to get a taxi home - I wasn't sure I'd be able to set Uber up on my phone properly without a valid credit card. As it happened, I totally miscounted and told the taxi driver I had $38 to get me back to Mosman from the inner city, so I was quite embarrassed and worried when I got back to my car and only seemed to have $30! The taxi driver was nice about it, but still...however, when I got up and out of the car two dollars fell off my lap so in the end I was only 70 cents short, phew!

But, yes I got in my car, drove back her and arrived a little after 10pm, so good time was made.

Right, I better wrap this up, it's nearly midnight and I do need to get up tomorrow. I'll hopefully have the group photo from the night to show you all tomorrow.

But now, goodnight!

10:44pm: Well, suffice to say my plan didn't go like I thought it would, primarily because the bus my friend and I caught to the hospital to see our other friend was late. As a result we didn't get there until 4:15. I was still considering going to church, but time passed quickly, so I called Mum to see if she would call Ivan (since I lost his number) to say I wouldn't be able to come. Mum though, said it was too late and I had to go this time because I couldn't just leave them in the lurch like that.

However by this time the bus to catch to Neutral Bay it had all ready gone and there was no way to get there in time! They only thing I could think to do was find Ivan's number - I had it on a resume so I had to turn on my mobile data get in my email and download it - and call him myself. Considering I was visiting my friend in hospital and she's just had brain surgery it was an all right excuse, but still I'm not sure what happened. Also, I have to admit I'm a little worried what Mum will say when/if she finds out? I suppose as a 31 year old I should not be scared of my mother or rather afraid of disappointing her, but you know.

Also now I have to figure out what church to go to tomorrow, since it's Lent and one really should go to church in Lent. I guess I could just go to the church I went to on Ash Wednesday, hopefully the priest won't talk for so long during the sermon, my mind started wandering! :OP

Anyway, it was good to be able to hang out with all the friends and catch up, there was even a visitors room for us to sit in! We left at around 5:30, since dinner arrived and our hospital friend was tired (her boyfriend stayed with her) as we left I asked Ben (who's an intern now) what the Hell a AGV was since there were all these signs about not interfering with them. Turns out that the hospital - which has recently been upgraded with new buildings - have these automated guidance vehicles, which bring food and bed sheets up to the wards all by themselves. Cool! :OD Alas we didn't see any, but that's pretty cool, like a Roomba but on a larger scale. Apparently they speak in a posh English accent, LOL.

We went to Chatswood for Chinese food - it proved to be a tight fit in Ben's small car - and more chatting, good times, good times. It also looked like I and two of my friends were going to have to take buses home, since Ben was considering going to into the city, but he changed his mind so I got a ride back here to the Granny Flat. Yay.

Finally, I should be off since I'm going to visit the Grandparent's tomorrow and need to be there at a decent hour because we're having lunch up in the dining room at the Retirement Village, plus I need time to play Canasta with M and get to the gym! So alas the memes will remain undone for now, I will catch up though!

Also my left shoulder feels sore, weird...the bus to the hospital did suddenly stop fast but I would't have thought that could cause it, I don't even think I was holding onto a support rail or anything. Weird indeed.

Righto, off I go, goodnight all!
