11:25pm: Nope, not at all...I stayed up too late last night like a dumbass and also the night before...so yeah, I'm very sleepy, which sucks because the Fed-Ex is playing his Semi-Final tonight and I can't watch it because it's the second one and the first one is definitely going to go to four sets. Balls :OP

I did a least get to see a shot of the Fed-Ex hanging at the Player's Restaurant watching the action. LOL, he's cool as a cucumber. But seriously, I can't believe I've hardly seen any Wimbledon this year?! I don't remember it being such a problem previously? Although I have noticed they don't seem to be reshowing games in the day time...it's probably all on the internet now, bah!

I'm also feeling pretty bummed about Le Tour, I can't get into it without Phil Liggett, it's just not the same! I wonder is he gone from commentating races all together? Is it all just interviews now? Which incidentally I never see on SBS even when I tune into the start of the coverage!

I'm also struggling a bit with my story...I'm tossing up between skipping this particular event all together, it's technically not that important to the plot and can be referred back to in later chapters or whatever. Decisions, decisions. Maybe I should skip it and see how it goes, LOL, guess my Tumblr friend was right about not posting until you've finished writing the story.

Oh yeah! That reminds me, yesterday after finishing work at the Mona Vale Library before heading for my volunteering I bought a lined notepad and put it in my Bamboo Spark and got around to trying it out. And it worked! Hooray! I was a bit worried because the pad has 90 sheets and the manual recommended only 50. So I'm hoping that'll be useful for my writing.

But anyway, I have to be off since like I said I underslept and it bit me in the butt, starting from this morning when I woke up turned my alarm off and fell back to sleep for another half hour! I was a bit late to Mrs S's which I've been doing a lot lately, stop backsliding me!

Also my tiredness led to me skipping the gym this afternoon, sigh. I expect better from me, LOL.

So yes, I bid you all goodnight!

11:55pm: I'm talking to myself because I've managed to totally procrastinate aaaall day and even though I did manage to finish my Easter Egg buying, I didn't go ice skating nor did I leave enough time to make a substantial entry.

In fact I should all ready be asleep because tomorrow is Easter and the parentals and I are going to 8am Mass.

But I always feel bad if I don't update daily, I feel like I'll get into a bad habit and start neglecting this thing.

Anywho, not much to report, although as it turned out Mum had recorded the figure skating highlights on SBS so tonight after watching our house shows we watched some of it.

Not sure what she made of it, though! I did point out that we will be seeing the Aussie skater at the ice show next week, so that's neat. Although I was most disappointed when I saw that they didn't show any of the men's short programs in the highlights! There were a few of them I really wanted to see and now I'm left wondering if that weird Japanese TV company has stopped their embargo of figure skating videos YouTube, seriously they'd block any footage, even stuff that wasn't from their own channel. Is that even legal I ask?

On that note though I better head off, like I said it's up early tomorrow and it's also going to be a busy day.

Goodnight all!

11:33pm: Well, there is, but it seems to have disappeared somewhere...I mean I have others, but it's really weird, I got myself some ice cream, picked up the bowl and spoon and took it into my bedroom/living room, let the Ice Magic se and when it was time to eat...the spoon was gone! Disappeared into thin air! Seriously, WTF? I went back into the kitchen to look for it, but nope. I guess I can only hope it hasn't disappeared in my bed somewhere and I end up rolling on it when I'm sleeping.

Speaking of sleep...I made the mistake of not checking my alarms after changing them for last weekend when I didn't have work on. You can see where this is going, right? I woke up at 9:20am and I begin work at 9:30.

Suffice to say it was a huge-ass rush to get to work and I was about ten minutes late and though I did remember who I was working with today I also realised I didn't have a mobile number for them and they weren't likely to answer the actual library phone before opening. The librarian in charge for the day said that it was fine, but I'm still thinking about been told off about my lack of punctuality and how I might get in trouble for it. I hope my lateness doesn't actually get reported to anyone!

Anywho, it was pretty warm today and I'm a bit bummed I didn't get a chance to go swimming, I could have gone over to Mum and Dad's after work I suppose, but I wanted to go home and watch ice skating on SBS - which I finally did! - I could have gone once it finished, but...I didn't due to laziness. So I guess that's my own fault. I'm thinking perhaps I should go over tomorrow before work, or maybe go to church in the morning and then go straight over after work to Mum and Dad's for my usual Sunday sleepover, I think the pool is open until 7pm?

In other, bad news my external hard drive - the one I've been saving pretty much everything to ever since my last computer's hard drive died and I had to replace it - has stopped working! The little connection thing is a loose! So I think the data is still on there, but I have no idea how I can get it off except by taking it to a computer repair place, but who know's how much that'll cost me? I did manage to get some stuff off it before it decided to die on me - even when I held the cord in an odd manner - but not pictures folder. That's got all sorts of stuff on it, shiiit.

Obviously, the concept of backing up has eluded me.

On that note, I have to be off, it's almost midnight and I don't want to stay up too late if I'm gonna do stuff tomorrow morning.

For now, goodnight!

11:29pm: Which is the channel with Letters & Numbers and the ice skating on it! I think I mentioned that I was able to pick it up when I plugged my aerial directly into the TV, but I also can't record from that (what's the deal with that anyway? Why would you want a TV that doesn't let you record stuff directly into it? Bloody annoying). I went to Bunnings today to discover they'd all ready taken all the Christmas stuff away and there were no suction cup light holder thingies available, so instead I bought a ready to plant flower and this connector cable since I thought I could two of my cables together to make it longer. However, it turned out I already had a longer cable, so I need to return it. But my Blu-ray/HDD player still won't get SBS even though it gets all the other channels. Bah! I shouldn't need to buy an entire new player just to get a channel?

I suppose I could ask the landlord if he can get SBS on his TV and if not see if he might call in the antenna man - which he was going to do when I thought the antenna outlet didn't work in here at all. Although, he might not do it for just one channel.

Anyway, moving on from my TV technical woes, I ended up having quite a busy day. After work with Mrs S, where my cupcakes were well-received by her husband, I to pick up the ingredients for lasagna that I was missing as well as some milk and fizzy drink for Mum - who saw me driving to the shops and since I planned to go over to the parental place for a swim - I agreed to get.

As it happened, we didn't get to go swimming after all - boo - although I'll be going over tomorrow after work at the library and popping by the Mall to get bath towels for Mrs S and Mum says we can go swimming then. We better. :OP

In other news, the Fed-Ex is back and at the Hopman Cup! He won his round against the guy from Great Britain (it wasn't Andy Murray), but the match between the ladies is taking longer than expected, which is no good for me, because afterwards there's a mixed doubles match. I've never seen Roger play any sort of doubles before and it would seem I probably won't this time either since it's coming up on midnight and I can't stay up too late. Guess them's the brakes, but seriously, even when something happens in Australia time zones can get in the way!

On that note, I shall wrap it up here, once again making no attempt to catch up on Memes, I gotta start updating my journal earlier, because I seriously miss them!

For now though, goodnight!

11:50pm: Yeah, yesterday as I was coming home from the parental units place I popped by the 7-11 to get some milk and decided to pick up one of these Santa belly Krispy Kreme donuts, which are super cute looking. I didn't eat it last night because I'd all ready had quite a few sweet, but I warmed it up for dessert tonight and let's just say it was not the best decision. It was just waaay to sweet, my stomach felt so weird afterwards that I almost had a panic attack!

Bah, I don't even care for Krispy Kreme donuts anyway so I don't know what the Hell I was thinking...

Anyway, that was basically the most activity I got done today I'm sorry to say...my mother ended up going swimming in the morning so there was no reason for me to go over since I wouldn't be able to go swimming myself and my big bro was having friends over, so...

I probably should have gone out, lying around all day is no good for me...or my step count. :OP I hope to rectify that tomorrow with not just work but going swimming with Mum at M and Grandpa's place.

Oh! And my the landlord's wife dropped off a small present for me today! How nice of them! I should have at least given them a card...shame on me.

But! It's nearly midnight so I better haul, before I go...I wrote a little fic for my friend [personal profile] crossover_chick for her birthday! Happy Birthday, Vic! This is the first writing I've done in a while so I'm totally rusty...

11:06pm: Tomorrow is D-Day...or should that be E-Day? Either way, the voting is probably about to begin over there - or maybe it all ready has in some states, and I suppose by this time tomorrow we'll all be finding out if the USA is going to screw us all or what.

And they better not, it was embarrassing as anything when Abbott was voted in here in Australia, but we are but a wee country without much political influence so in all honesty we were only hurting ourselves (and a number of poor refugees I suppose :O(), if Trump gets in however...bomb shelters will suddenly become a very good idea.

Also, I won't be able to watch the news for the next four years, it was bad enough having to put up with Tony Abbott while he was in, no way can I stomach watching that orange idiot pretending he has two brain cells to rub together.

Anyway, onto more palatable topics! Of which I don't actually have much to say about. It was a rather lazy day for me save for the hour I went to the gym. I was planning to wash my car, but with it's typical timing a storm came in and screwed that right up. Although, considering how often this happens I might just have to wash my car anyway. I mean if the car is clean the rain will be less likely to make it dirty, right? Unless the rain itself is dirty, I suppose.

What else to report, not a lot...I should really get some sort of hobby, although I've just remembered I did buy that fabric to make shirts (I should remember this, I only did it yesterday!) and perhaps I should try and do some writing. I've mentioned this previously, but I didn't actually do anything about it. Man, I need to get me some follow-through.

That will have to wait until tomorrow though because I must get to bed now! Don't let us down, USA, we're counting on you.

11:08pm: So somehow I ended up looking at the very early entries of my journal...waaaay back in 2004 - more than 12 years ago now! And man, I used to drive a lot and also see my friends a lot more often...

Which, I think might be the crux of my issues these past couple of days...I've been all isolated! All by myself! When I first started my journal I had many friends reading it and I got quite a few comments, and when that wasn't happening I was on AIM chatting away. And of course, I actually saw my local friends too.

No wonder I've felt so lonely, lately :O/ I haven't seen a friend since...late April - well not including the few minutes I spoke to one at Target, she was at work though so not much could be said. Now admittedly two of them are in far flung places now, but there's the others. Shakes head. Terrible effort on my behalf. I should make some calls tomorrow...perhaps I can have a house warming party when I get into my next Granny Flat.

I'm feeling rather better now, today I went to my parents' house with plans of having lunch with my father. That didn't end up happening, because he'd gone out and forgotten to take his mobile phone so I wasn't even able to call him and tell him I was there! However, Mum called so I got to talk to her, which was nice, I guess I do speak to Mum a lot so having not done so in a few days obviously bummed me out too.

And of course, Dad eventually arrived back home and although we didn't eat lunch together - I wasn't hungry and he'd had a late breakfast - we hung out for a while, so that was nice. :O)

Anyway, not much else to report and I need to get myself to bed, because as I've been saying these past few days I haven't been getting the proper amount of zzzs! This can't be helping my mental state and whatnot.

Before I go, I'm rather relieved to hear that apparently the weather is supposed to clear up on the weekend, fingers crossed it does because I didn't actually do my washing today because it's been raining on and off so I need to get that done tomorrow!

Anyway, off I go now.

9:43pm: It's really annoying, especially since I feel like washing them in hot water would fix it, but the optometrist told me that would be a bad idea. And thinking on it he's probably right and that probably explains why the polarising coating on my glasses is sometimes a bit messed up. Sometimes they don't go dark in bright light in a uniform manner.

Maybe I'll have to buy those special glasses cleaning things, although I feel like they're not very environmentally friendly.

Moving on, not much to report, although the rain has set in and is expected to last all the way to Monday - bugger. Especially since it's sheet washing this week and that's huge pain in the ass when it's raining, I don't have anywhere to hang the sheets properly inside my Granny Flat. Maybe I should look into buying a larger drying rack.

Ow, my eyeballs hurt, not sure if that's got to do with my glasses or my lack of zzzzs, I still keep getting only 7.5 hours a night, get with the program me!

I keep getting distracted by this DVD I'm watching so almost an hour has past and this entry is depressingly short. Evidentally I don't have any deep and meaningful things to say. :OP

Oh! Very good news, the Fed-Ex did it! He managed to turn the game around from 2 sets down so now he's going into the semi-finals, whoo! Although, he's up against The Sleeve or rather Raonic or perhaps I should go with a friend of mine's nickname for him "Freddo" because he bares a striking resemblance to the Freddo Frog. Go Fed-Ex! :OD

10:45pm: So I'm catching up on my house shows, I've actually seen this one before, but it raises many questions...so this family of five has decided to move into a tiny house, but surely they're not planning to live there for very long, because once their kids become teenagers no way are they gonna share one tiny loft space! Also, not to put too fine a point on it, the parents also have a loft with no door or anything so how exactly is there going to be sexy results? Talk about awkwaaard. But then people are weird I guess. :OP

In other news, I better make this entry quick because I didn't get enough zzzzs last night so you know what that means - a skipping of the Memes, sorry about that.

Also the TV reception has just buggered up, beats me why, but undoubtedly that's my cue to exit!

Not much to report today, although I did pop into K-Mart after work to find a mattress protector for Mrs S, who got a new bed delivered so now she has two spare ones - well three actually if you count the fold-out one. Family likes to come and visit though. I found it quite easily and then went looking for boots, alas K-Mart didn't have the kind I was looking for...they did however have this adorable cushion made to look like the sun with a smiley face and everything! It's so cute and only 10 bucks so I kinda had to get it. :OP I also got a soft black beanie to go with my black gloves and restocked my cheese supplies at the new Aldi, niice I say.

However, after that I was pretty lazy so once again I've failed in reaching my step count! Must do better tomorrow! I also need to find out if the school Mum does her Scripture at is out for the holidays on Wednesday or not, note to self!

Right, better dash, like I said, bed calls!

10:35pm: But either way I've ended up here at the parental abode after dragging myself to the school to help Mum with her class and felt so icky I didn't think I could drive home.

I did end up feeling better, but I'm staying here over night. Not sure what I'll do tomorrow morning though...

I'll be heading off now, boy in exciting news my Jawbone Up arrived today, yay!

11:39pm: So I realised today that the end of May is coming and I have no idea when Mrs S is actually returning! I think it's 31st May but I'm not 100% and thus have no idea when I'm supposed to resume my morning work.

So I've sent Mrs S an email to ask, although I'm not sure she'll get, I do remember her mentioning that she'd call when she needed me to come back, so I assume that's still the case.

Anyway! Once again I've let this entry super late, why do I keep doing this? Well mostly because I get distracted doing other stuff, plus it's not like I have that much to say, in fact I didn't even go out today! Which in retrospect was a bad idea. I also forgot to take my anti-anxiety medication until the evening, which I'm quite sure had something to do with the almost-anxiety attack. Bloody rude, I tell you.

In other news, House Hunters International is on and the accent from this girl from the US is all over the place! I thought only Aussie's had that issue when they stayed for extended periods in other countries. Good to know we're not alone I suppose, LOL.

What else? Well not much, I remembered my Russian, but I forgot my Simpsons Tapped Out so I guess I'll be missing out on visiting my friends on that.

But oh! I just remembered something! I've made a start on my Pusheen Plush, she looks super cute all ready! I've put the stripes on the top of her head, her eyes and mouth, but I still have to put the stripes on her back and figure out how to make the legs before I stuff her. And decided if I'm going to get pipe cleaners for her whiskers or just use fabric.

Anyway, with only ten minutes left to midnight I better haul ass, tomorrow is Mum visiting day so I have to make sure the place looks nice!

Oh! And great news, the little bro can come on the cruise! Yay! I hope he enjoys it...it'd be a shame otherwise.

11:06pm: About Super-sized persons vs super-skinny persons, primarily because it reminds me that I'm not quite a svelte as I should be. In fact, when I looked my waist measurement it was like 4 cm bigger then the so-called danger zone! Oh dear. I thought the old gut was looking a bit rotund. Whoops. Obviously, all the chocolate and Nutella has not been good idea. Because it's not like I haven't been going to the gym! Although, I guess it could also be the lack of my morning job, there hasn't been as much standing as usual.

Oh well, it's probably not as bad as all that, I've also being drinking water, I swear I can gain and lose 1 kg a day of water weight. But water's good for you so :OP

Moving on from health my neck's not as itchy today, although it's still a bit red. I'm not sure though...I think I could have possibly made things worse because I cut my nails yesterday and the emery board was all...not scratchy anymore so my nails were rather rough. Bad move, me.

Also, today was a rather lazy day, I didn't actually get out of bed until after noon! I was watching DVDs and just chilling. Although after that I got a move on, copying the CD the SRE person was having trouble with, onto a memory stick, then I found my Harry Potter books - they're in a crate rather than on my shelves and got The Philospher's Stone and the pieces of fabric for Mum (I almost forgot the green one I all ready had!) and then went and dropped them off at Mum and Dad's place before I went to Warriewood to do some food shopping and try and find some tracksuit pants.

I did find the pants, although I feel a bit guilty about purchasing them because they were made in Bangledesh and as far as I know working conditions there haven't got any better since the horrible factory collapse there last year. :O( They were only 7 bucks so you know they've gotta have some crappy pay, if they got paid at all.

So, yeah...I dunno, how does one fight against the exploitation of clothing workers? Even the super expensive clothing companies do it! :O( And of course, making your own clothes isn't a way to avoid it either because the fabric is still made by exploited workers! Sigh.

What else to report? Not much, which is good because I really do need to get myself to bed at a proper hour it's only a little more than three weeks until Mrs S returns so I need to get used to getting up at 7:20am.

And that's all I have to say about that.

11:00pm: I may be exaggerating slightly, but it's suddenly got to 11pm and I haven't updated my DW or done my Russian! And considering I've been free all day this is quite shameful of me. :OP Actually, I did go out thinking I'd be able to get my eyes checked, but apparently once again, it seems you need to make an appointment in advance these days. Or maybe, I'm just misremembering since I haven't being in quite a while. Anyway, I finally got around to making an appointment, I originally considered going on Sunday, but then I decided to go with Friday.

This means that the next three days are going to be rather busy! Tomorrow I'm going to M and Grandpa's were I'll stay the night, then there's the library and ice skating show and staying at my friend's house on Thursday and on Friday there's the library, optometrist and picking up my car (hopefully).

Actually, I'm sure I saw my car today as I was driving to the shopping centre, I was rather surprised, because to fix it they need to take the side of it off, and the weather's been shitty lately. I couldn't see the dented side from my vantage point driving by, so I couldn't tell if they'd made a start on it or not. I guess not, otherwise they'd have called me. Perhaps they started on the smaller dents first.

Right, so I've just finished the Russian, yay! So I guess we should do some Memes!

11:18pm: OK, that's melodramatic, but indeed today daylight savings ends for six months, and now we can all look forward to it being dark at 6pm, ugh. Not looking forward to it at all. Although the weather remains summer-like, for example it got up to like 29 degrees C! I was in the library for most of the day so I don't know if it got to that, but it was quite warm when I finished at 2pm.

I was rather looking forward to going swimming once I psyched myself up for it, only to discover...that it doesn't start until 4pm on Saturday! Shit, how could I forget that? Either way, I really couldn't be bothered to hang around for an hour - I hadn't brought socks with me, so I didn't want to actually work out at the gym, plus work was a madhouse today, I was practically run off my feet! - so back home I went.

I stopped by the parental home, although Mum was out, so I hung out with Dad for a bit - he wanted to show me this extra USB slot thing he bought and plugged into his tablet so he can use a mouse with it, LOL! He also mentioned something of mine was his car, so before I left we went out to take a look and it was my kangaroo! Mum had left it in the car! How rude! :OP Well at least I got to show it to Dad and he took inside to make sure Mum takes it along in their luggage. They're leaving on Monday after all!

Also, while I was doing all this driving around I saw a five door green Mazda 2, I went to take a closer look at it, just because and found it was an auto and priced at $7,700 that's like $1,000 less than my one! Once again, life is rude! Although this one had done almost double the kms, so I guess it's all even outs in the end. Or at least it will once I get that poor dent fixed. It's really bringing down the aesthetic as I say.

I was also reminded by the km reading of the Mazda to check my own, it's up to 50,000! I need to get that service done, but I haven't heard back from the garage I called. They were the ones who did the pre-sale inspection so I felt I should go to them, but if they're not gonna bother returning my call...

Moving along...the net is acting weird, although I'm not sure if it's my computer or what. Some things are working and some aren't. The internet here is unlimited though...

Anyway, here's the Other Friday Memes

The (Other) Friday Five

19/2/16

These come from feodora on LJ

1. Do you live a house, a condo, or some kind of apartment? A Granny Flat which would be some other kind of apartment. Unlike the previous one I was in, it's attached to the actual main house. It's bigger and nicer though.

2. Do you rent or own? Rent.

3. What’s one thing that you would change about it if you could? I guess it'd be handy to have my own washing machine since I have to use the landlords one, they're nice about it, but it's still a bit of a pain.

10:35pm: I'm gonna assume that's why I cant think straight right now. I had an idea of what to write this entry about an hour or so ago, but I totally can't remember any of it now that I've finally got this window up. Fail.

Anyway! I meant to go to the gym today, but because of a change in time for the Special Religious Education thing, and the fact that I wanted to get Mrs S some new blue pants - after I stuffed up with the other pair - from the Mall I didn't have enough time - or I might have but I didn't feel like rushing around. My guts are still being a jerkass so I didn't really feel up to it anyway. However, I hope to go tomorrow especially since I'll be finishing up early with Mrs S tomorrow because she and he husband are going to the Easter Show, which reminds me I need to ask Mrs S to bring me a Bertie Beetle showbag. :O)

After SRE, I headed home while Mum taught the Year 6s (after making me introduce myself, apparently she wanted to show a younger SRE person to the class, but I hate getting up in front of people!) - she usually teaches them first, then Year 2, but it was the other way around today - to do some last minute cleaning before coming over to check the place out. I passed muster. :O)

We also discussed the possibility of me getting a mortgage and buying a property, since I noticed while driving around today that a one bedroom, one bath and one parking spot place was for sale and when I looked it up on Domain it was quite reasonably priced.

However, I'm making nowhere near as much money as I thought I was - scratches head - well that's not completely true, but after Mum went to the trouble to call her broker about looking into mortgages it doesn't look like I have any hope of getting one that would allow me to buy anything in the Sydney area. Do'h! I didn't realise that as a part-timer with benefits and whatnot I get ten bucks less than the casual rates. Whoops.

Right, I best be off now, to catch up on those much needed zzzzs!

10:48pm: I totally forgot Australia's Got Talent was on tonight! I thought I was missing something, but I couldn't think what. Well that was pretty dumb. I can't even use the app to watch it on my Samsung Blu-Ray because for some reason that app isn't available on it. Rude! So I've installed it on my phone, although I'm not sure it'll work.

Or maybe I won't because it apparently wants you to sign in before you can even use it. Also rude! You don't have to do that with any of the other TV apps.

And you have to do it on the website too! o.O How rude I don't want Channel 9 all up in my business. And to top it off it's not actually up anyway. Maybe I'll just watch the clips on Facebook. To be honest, I'm surprised there hasn't be complaints about this having to sign up sheninigans.

In other news, I was surprised to hear the Nancy Reagan died today! Which answers my musings about whether she's alive or not. Turns out she was.

Moving on, I was going to go to the gym today, but I realised while I was there at Mrs S's that until further notice the pool has only one lane open, so I figured it'd be hard to actually swim, so I decided to put it off until tomorrow. Although I did go to that swim school after work and found out that they do have public swim sessions, but alas it's an 8 dollar flat rate, no special for going to ten sessions or anything. Which means a weeks worth of swimming will cost me $16. So unless I can join a gym for $3 a week I'll be out of pocket. Even if I take into account petrol.

Anyway, once again I've managed to run out of time to do memes, OMG me get with the program! Although at least I did my Russian.

Lastly, the Red Cross keeps trying to call me, no doubt to see about upping my monthly donation, but they keep calling at the worst times - like when I'm driving or at work! (Although in their defense I did stay an hour later than usual today). Beyond that I'm not planning on upping my donation anyway, my budget is tight. I wonder if there's some way to let them know this without having to wait for them to call again.

I guess I'll have to wonder...because now I'm off to bed!

Goodnight all!

11:14pm: Although in all honesty it looks like it! See my shame! The only positive, if there's possibly one is that if you're standing in front of the car you can't actually see the damage, so maybe that's true from the back? Either way it's still pretty sad to look at. I hope it can be fixed quickly, I hate to him like that.

Moving on, not much else to report on, work went well, church went well and the video dubbing continues. I've got through 14 tapes now! Go me! Although I still haven't picked up everything from the floor of my bedroom yet...I should get onto that.

However...I'm a bit concerned, one of my teeth have felt weird for the past couple of days, and I'm still sans health insurance. Not to mention I'm not sure what the waiting period is if I move to a new insurer. Although I really need to get onto that because like I mentioned before the price goes up if you don't apply before April 1st!

And...I've let myself get distracted by the tape I've been dubbing and I'm not really in the mood to do Memes at the moment - my brain feels fuzzy :OP.

But this is a terrible entry! I wish I had something exciting to report, but yeah I got nothin' and sleep is needed.

Anyway, I'm sure this week will have more in store.

For now though, goodnight!

11:31pm: Yes, today's shift with Mrs S lasted much longer than usual due to unforeseen circumstances after I'd all ready stayed an extra hour.

I originally planned to go to the gym and then to Dee Why Library for volunteering, but on top of the extra long shift I also felt rather dodgy this morning, that time o' the month is approaching and apparently PMS is deciding to be a jerk-ass.

I did however, get my car washed at least, although I'm not sure if the car cleaning stuff I got is the right one...my old land lord said it wasn't and I used to borrow his, but I'm not there anymore so... I thought it would be OK, but you know.

Anyway, I have to get to Mrs S's a half hour earlier than usual tomorrow because the man who's coming to install some new stuff in her kitchen is coming at 10am so she needs to be dressed and had breakfast and all that jazz before then.

Which means I should have bee in bed like an hour ago, do'h! I fail. But yes, I'm off now.

But on one last note, apparently Li'l Lletyon is already out of retirement as a back-up in Australia's Davis Cup team, LOL shortest retirement ever. Pulling a Plushy perhaps? ;O)

Right, now goodnight!

Whoops...

11:29pm: Ah crap look at the time! I decided to watch Tangled, which I borrowed from the library like a week ago but haven't had time to watch it until now, but I didn't pay attention to the time when I did! Now it's past my bedtime and I haven't even studied my Russian. I'll have to give it a miss tonight because I haven't been getting enough zzzs and I don't want to end up being too sleepy.

Anyway, not much to report today, except I almost forgot I had a shift on at the Library! Fortunately Mrs S asked me and I double checked my phone. Although this did mean that I didn't get to go to the gym...again...booo! I'm gonna go tomorrow though, so help me!

I also made my lasagna tonight and managed not to burn the top of it in the oven here, yaaay!

I planned to dub some more ice skating, but SBS on Demand was being an ass...maybe it doesn't work right when there's too many people on the net, perhaps if I try it when the people in the main house aren't home it'll work all right. Fingers crossed!

Now, though, I must flee!

Goodnight all!

Not Cool...

Feb. 9th, 2016 10:56 pm

10:34pm: What's not cool? Well, firstly even though I've been very careful with my acne treatment cream my new Garfield nightshirt has faded a bit on the back! Son of a... I suppose I'll have to live with the damage so far and just not wear it until I finish up the cream. Although, I'm not sure how long that'll be...

Also not cool, today I felt quite icky, which resulted in me skipping the gym today, which I was most disappointed about. It was even worse when I realised what the cause probably was...the cheese I used on my pizza last night was mouldy! I actually knew this and thought that throwing out the effected bits would keep me safe, but as the internet informed me this was not the case. Not to mention when I took the leftover pizza out of the fridge and saw a spot of green on it. Ugh.

I've thrown the shredded cheese and the pizza out, which truly sucks. And of course, I was left rather anxious and troubled in the abdominal area for the rest of the day, so yeah. Damn shredded cheese, I never get through it fast enough and have to throw it out. Maybe I should buy the smaller packets available at Coles rather than trying to save money with Aldi.

Anyway, I didn't take anything to the new granny flat today either, which is not cool either because once Thursday rolls around I'll be working at the library which will kind of eat into moving time, so lucky for me I got that extra week. Although, I probably would have made a bigger push if I didn't have that time.

And finally, in the 'not cool' list, I've dilly-dallyed on applying for the library job and now I've only got tomorrow left to do so! Damn! That's cutting it close, but I guess that's what I get. :OP

Also...I didn't get enough zzzs, which has probably not helped my overall sense of health, so I shall be turning in now.

Tomorrow, I'll be meeting Mum at the new place to set up the shelves for the baskets so wish me lots of luck!

For now, goodnight!
