11:57pm: Well, clearly I left this update waaay too late, but I've been reading and procrastinating on my fanfic (OMG, me, get with the program!)

One thing I didn't procrastinate on at least was washing my car! Yes, the landlords have gone on holiday and while they're away I'm able to park in the driveway, which means I was finally able to use the garden hose. The only downside is I'm not entirely sure I cleaned the roof well enough, I should have got my step-stool (damn, my short self LOL) right from the start. Well, you live, you learn.

I also didn't procrastinate on going to the gym after Scripture Class today, yaay! The gym sure is busy on Wednesday afternoons. I guess people want to fight the mid-week slump.

In other news, Mrs S's mother henceforth known as Mama S arrived on Monday evening and I got to see her this morning. She's a really cool lady - over 90 and still active! Also, she bought me a present, which I totally need to get a photo of because it's sooo super adorable! It's a llama toy! Seriously, it's just too cute, I love it. I have christened it Fluffshenko, LOL.

Not much else to report, although the person who's taken over the Scripture class from Mum would appreciate my help (there are a lot of kids) so I guess I'll keep that up for a while.

For now, I better wrap this up and get my butt to bed! I got work and library volunteering tomorrow!

Goodnight all!

anonymoose_au: (Hey! Bitches)
9:50pm: I'm still alive, I've just been laid low by a cold the last few days. It all started on Saturday when I woke up with a slightly sore throat and a bit sniffling, bad enough that I didn't go ice skating - and thus didn't get my beanie (apparently it's still waiting at Macquarie for me, but I need to get it sooner rather than later!).

By the time I woke up on Sunday I felt terrible and had to make the call to the library saying I wouldn't be able to come in. I had to leave a message actually so I was worried they wouldn't get the message, but fortunately I got an SMS back confirming it.

So I spent most of the day in bed, except for when I got up and drove over to Mum and Dad's house because I didn't feel like being by myself when I felt so gross. Although it was a bit of a gamble so to speak because though I'd also sent an SMS to Mrs S asking if it was possible for the other carer to fill in for me on Monday I hadn't heard back yet and I wasn't sure I'd be able to drive even the small distance. Fortunately, that worked out too!

As it happened I couldn't stay in bed all day Monday because the internet still wasn't working properly over at Newtown so in a last ditch effort to solve it Dad and I drove over there with my laptop and spare router that I bought before I realised I didn't actually have a phone line at my Granny Flat. The modem that was all ready over there was apparently working again after one of the tenant's fixed the cable, but of course, I'd instructed Dad to reset it so all the connection info was wiped off! I decided to change over the modems anyway though, since the one there was old and didn't make it easy to figure out the name and password for it.

Anyway, I was able to sort everything out, hooray! Although I did discover something's happened to my Box Thing, namely, it's padlocks have disappeared! WTF?! There was also a box not inside it when Dad and I arrived. To be honest I'm surprised said box hadn't been thrown out you're not supposed to leave things in the car park, I put it back in the Box, but the thing is still unlocked! Hopefully, no-one breaks in...at least I don't have any comics for them to steal hmpf!

I stayed over at Mum and Dad's last night as well, which Dad approved of since there's central heating here so I don't have to worry about temperature changes. Which M thought was a good idea as well when I called up to cancel (regrettably) today's Canasta game.

Which brings us today, to my great relief, the sore throat and congested nasal passage portion of the cold seems to have ended - cross fingers!!! - although I've got a bit of a cough and my ears are blocked, boo. However, I'm well enough to go to work at Mrs S's tomorrow, and considering I have to get there a bit earlier than normal I better wrap this up and get my butt to bed.

And on a final note, the land lord finally fixed the tap...except...he's installed a completely different tap, so now I have two mismatched ones! LOL. It looks quite unattractive, but hey at least there's no dripping! I know this because I have popped back to the Granny Flat twice in these last few days, on Monday to get the router and today to get my work clothes. The kitchen looks good if I do say so myself. :O)

Right, better be off now. I hope all my USA pals enjoyed the Solar eclipse (the cosmic ballet goes on :OP).

Goodnight all!

11:37pm: Well, I'm sleepy, which is no surprise, because it's late!

Not much to report today, although it turned out to be quite a busy afternoon! First I had to go and get the flowers for Mrs S since the gardener is coming to her place tomorrow, however, I also had a shift at the library. So I had to go home first to change my clothes and pack up for my night over at Mum and Dad's place, then get to the nursery, buy the flowers, deliver them back to Mrs S's house and then get to the library. Phew!

Fortunately, I got to Mona Vale in plenty of time and the shift went well!

What else to report? Not much, although I finally got a chance to speak to Mum on the phone, she's been hard to get a hold of - it turns out that the ring tone for the Skype number my big bro set up for her is quiet so she kinda needs to be sitting right next to her phone to hear it.

And I did some work on my fic tonight, although not nearly enough, boo.

I did have a plan to go ice skating tomorrow so I could go to M and Grandpa's on Saturday, but M called today and I've arranged to go and see them tomorrow instead. Which is cool, except I wanted to buy another Pusheen beanie - but they could be sold out by then at Macquarie. :O( I guess I can call them up and see if they can put one aside for me...or just suck up the cost of postage.

Anywho, I better get to bed now so I'll be good for Canasta playing tomorrow! We'll be playing in the morning so M will have the advantage, LOL!

So I say goodnight!

11:21pm: Seriously, I was looking up Relax (Don't Do It) by Frankie Goes To Hollywooud for reasons and the video clip for it was freakin' insane. Seriously, how do people come up with that stuff? Crazy business.

Anywho! I'm updating this a bit late, but there's not a lot to say, although Mrs S's husband is getting better which is great news! He should be home on Wednesday.

Meanwhile I have to do my performance review tomorrow, I'm not really looking forward to it. Those things just seem like a whole bunch of bullshit under the guise of been...I dunno, useful? An Australian comedy show was just dealing with this issue a few weeks back. I sure hope I don't end up getting demoted!

And my battery is getting low so I better wrap this up and hit the hay, bed is needed!

Wish me luck for tomorrow, perhaps I'll update tomorrow too about the review, shocking I know!

11:06pm: Although not right now because I have to go to bed! But I was meant to call both my friend B and my grandpa - who had cataract surgery today and according to M was uncharacteristically nervous about it. I only knew about the later because I was at Mum and Dad's place this morning when M called, although she did say I could call tomorrow.

I could make an excuse, namely I was unexpectedly called into work at the library this afternoon, so I was workin' for the man. Of course, I finished workin' for the man at 6pm so yeah not really a good excuse. :OP

Anyway! I also went and helped Mrs S and my co-worker this morning with some stuff so there's some more money, hmm I should give my savings account a cash injection! Added to that is the thousand dollars my parents is giving to me and my brothers in celebration of them selling their house in Cammeray. Now they only have one investment property - Newtown, which as I mentioned (I think) we're looking for a new tenant for before Mum heads off to Japan. I put an ad up, but there hasn't been much of an interest, grumble grumble.

In other news, I need to make this entry quick because I have to get to Mrs S's a bit early tomorrow, and Mum woke me up early this morning because she had a problem with her work phone hmpf.

Aaaand I just let myself get distracted...but let me say just one last thing...there's been a lot of weirdness going on in Australian politics where 5 politicians in the last month have found out they're dual citizens - which they're not allowed be. The current one though, was given Italian citizenship because his mother decided to become one and signed him up too! Except...he was 25? Can your parents just do that when you're over 18? Seriously, it's weird.

Right better wrap this up and hit the hay!

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!

11:26pm I feel I should update since I don't yesterday, but I'm not sure if I have anything to say.

Oh wait, I do, namely I got through a bit of writer's block with my story, whoo go me.

I also helped Mrs S with setting up her security camera, it took a call to Telstra to get it going, but it all came good in the end.

Also, I dare to hope that my lower abdomen issues may have cleared up, I felt pretty ick this morning,I almost didn't want to show up for the Scripture class, but I did and I even went to the gym after. Yaay go me.

Aside from that not much else and I'm watching something on my laptop so I'm actually updating this on my phone so yeah.

Better be off now, goodnight everyone!

11:27pm: So yesterday I decided to buy that 2-in-1 laptop from Aldi because, it seemed like a good idea and the parental units were on board. It seemed like a good idea at the time, but...alas it just wasn't right. In that it the screen was too small, so all the text was tiny and even when I tried to zoom in it just wasn't right. Maybe it wasn't related but later in the night I had such horrible headache, seriously, it was killing me!

Also, the screen flickered when I got on Tumblr and the touch screen wasn't quite receptive enough - although I guess I should have expected that one, it's not top-market after all. So I decided to return it, which is allowed, except there was one small issue...the laptop came with a year's subscription to Microsoft Office so I activated it. I think it might be attached to my email now...which means even though I've returned the computer the next person who buys it won't be able to use the subscription! I did go to the Microsoft website to try and sort it out, they told me not worry , though I'm not sure that's true.

I feel bad about that, I gotta say. Maybe I should look into it again tomorrow.

Aside from computer related sheninigans yesterday was a good day! It was a public holiday so I didn't have to get to Mrs S's place until 9:30 and then I finished early and went to the parental abode for lunch with the parental units and the little bro. Not only was lunch delicious, the little bro had some good news, not only is work going well, he's decided to quit smoking. Yay! :OD It seems to be going well for him so far, so fingers crossed that goes on.

I spent the night at the parentals so Mum and I could watch our show - it's a hilarious topical game show, ah we laugh so hard.

Which makes me bummed that for the next two weeks I'll be watching it on my own because Mum and Dad are off to Japan to visit the big bro. Sniff, them's the brakes I guess, I'm sure they'll have fun, I'm not sure if I mentioned but they'll be doing some tourist stuff like going to an onsen.

I really should get going because it's ten minutes to midnight and I've got work tomorrow! I had work today actually, because Mrs S said her other carer wanted to meet me and that I should probably show her a few things and also to help rearrange a room...although the whole room thing ended up being a bust, LOL. Anyway! She was nice and actually said we should meet up sometime because she likes cooking Peruvian food (she's from Peru too) which means I could try it.

And lastly, the fanfic is still going, although now I wonder, if I write the whole thing before I start posting it do I posted it all at once or what? Please advise.

Right, now I really have to go.

Goodnight all!

11:12pm: Yep, I was hoping the weather people had dropped the ball on their predictions (it happened a couple of weeks back) but nope, it looks like it's going to be a very wet weekend. To which I say boo, because I wish to go ice skating and I probably need to get my blades sharpened which means driving and I'm a little leery about driving in the pouring rain. Especially since some of the roads I take are prone to flooding with this sort of weather, I guess I'll just have to cross my fingers.

Also...the weather was deceptively clear when I got home from doing some shopping today (after finishing up at Mrs S's place) and it was sheet washing day so I put them on and headed for the gym. However, a little over halfway through my work out it started absolutely bucketing down! So I had to do some creative sheet hanging because I can't put them on the line. Which is bad news because I don't have any room anything else so no clothes washing today...I really hope I can get everything done and dry by Monday.

What else to report? Well, I did briefly buy a Bamboo Spark which was on special at Aldi - it's been there for a while and it looked interesting. I have a Bamboo One but it's weird to draw on because you can't actually see what you're drawing on the thing itself, it appears on the laptop screen and it's a little disconcerting. When I got the Spark home though I discovered there's an app for tablets and smartphones that lets you draw on the screen and it's free! The Spark is a little weird...in that you actually draw on paper with a special pen which then sends the strokes you made to an app, so there's still a bit of disconnect. Plus it was sixty bucks, and I'm not meant to be spending money on extraneous stuff, so after the gym I returned it.

The only downside to the app is that my phone screen is too small for it to really work properly and my tablet is a bit too old - on the other hand it could just be the stylus I'm using...might need to check into that. So I might just have to stick with the Bamboo One after all that. Pft, fail.

On the fan fic front, I'm most relieved that while working at Mrs S's today I found a way to move the story forward, phew! I was getting bogged down and the headache I had last night wasn't helping at all. Of course, having a story idea while working isn't very helpful because I couldn't write it down, but patience is a virtue, or something. :OP

So, it's getting late and thus I better head off, I only have one other thing to report...the handle decided to break off my regular sized pot, do'h! Now I need to find a new one, but should I splash out and buy a new set of pots? Or just replace that one? Any advice on this matter would be appreciated.

And now I shall be off!

Goodnight all!

11:28pm: Pinstriped pants that is...in my size. Today Mum and I had to meet with Dad at the solicitor's office to sign a document cancelling the contract for the apartment we originally were going to buy and I decided to take a look in the two second hand clothes shops in the shopping area there.

And there were pinstriped pants there! Like five or six of them and none of them were my size! Well fuck, how bloody annoying! Once again I ask, where have all the pinstripes goooone?

Moving on...more news on the job front, some new library technician positions have popped up! Hooray! They're full-time and don't seem to be temporary so I definitely have to apply for those. There's also some other jobs I can apply for although once again I'm being a lazy butt here. I tell you, after years of job searching you just end up being fucking over it. But! I need to get my head in the game.

What else? Well, I realised that I left Mrs S's hair turban (you know those things you use to put up your wet hair after you wash it) outside! Aaaaaah, I felt like I was forgetting something when I left and sure enough I did. She's gonna tell me off for that :OP

Yaaawn, I didn't get enough sleep last night because I'm a dumbass, and it bit me on the butt this morning when my alarm went off, because I stopped it, shut my eyes and then opened them again twenty minutes later! Cripes! I ended up being late to work! Which was not good because Mrs S had an appointment in the city and thus had to get a move on.

Speaking of which, I have an appointment with the podiatrist myself tomorrow, which ties into the above and means I need to get my butt to bed. Plus, my brain is losing its ability to think.

So yeah gotta sleep.

11:14pm: From a young Australian tourist who went to Colombia, bought what she believed were sets of headphones from someone she met there and apparently didn't find it weird that they were given to her in black plastic bin bags secured with sticky tape.

To no-one's surprise (I'm sure) it turned out that each of these 18 packages contained not just headphones, but cocaine.

Now, it's possible that's just a really bad cover story and she did know, but if not I have no idea how anyone couldn't have been suspicious of something wrapped like that, it's the international symbol of "DRUGS ARE IN HERE"

Yaaawn, well I let myself get distracted and now it's on twenty minutes to midnight and I didn't get nearly enough zzzzs last night! Which might have explained why my digestive system was still being an ass. However, that might have had something to do with having to do the Year 2 Scripture Class by myself today! Fortunately, Mum gave me instructions on what to do and it went quite well, nice kids (with a few naughty ones, but none really bad) but still kind of nerve-wracking! I kept forgetting what to say and "um-ing and ah-ing" the whole way through. The career of a teacher is so not for me! :OP

However, I totally need to find myself some more hours...Dad and I met Mum at the office to sign the contract for the other studio apartment - the last one in fact! - and whilst the due date for the stamp duty resets itself (thank God because I had to pay that $650 fine today!) I'll need to be actually employed full-time (or equivalent hours) to be able to live there!

There is a part-time receptionist job that looks interesting, mostly afternoons, but it also seems to want someone who can fill-in when others are on annual leave or whatever - which depending on the day would be difficult...Plus there's one full-day on Friday - but Mrs S did say that if it was just one day I could change one of my three days so I could do that. Although...she did seem to forget that this morning when I spoke to her about it so I was bit worried :OP

But yes, let's not get ahead of oneself - I haven't even applied, LOL!

That in mind though, I'll need my wits about it, so now I shall be off to bed!

10:17pm: Well, I've finally heard back from the Office of State Revenue regarding the ticket I got for driving unregistered and they basically told me "Tough shit, pay up".

Fuck me...$650 down the drain. That's basically the cost of flying to Japan, seeing Plushy at a show (in a good seat no less!) and the flight back!

Not to mention like three weeks worth of savings for the apartment stamp duty and two and a half weeks rent. So yeah this is money I can totally spare.

They really need to put this shit on a sliding scale, because this a HUGE amount of money for me, whereas for someone else it'd be a bit of an inconvenience...I get that it's supposed to be a fine and everything, but they could be reasonable. :O/

The one saving grace of this whole mess is that at least the cop was nice enough not to give me a fine for being uninsured as well, otherwise I'd be looking at having to pay over $1000!!!

Fucking sucks.

In other news I'm feeling a bit glum because I've just discovered that one of my Tumblr friends now hates Yuri on Ice aka the figure skating anime. And now I'm a bit uncomfortable because I still love it and repost lots of fan-art of it on my Tumblr...I kind of want to say something to her over Twitter about it, but I have no idea what to say. I mean...I hope she doesn't look down on me for still liking it, but I don't even know? Plus she seems to have like valid reasons for not liking it...so now I'm questioning my own taste? But I don't know.

Well, we both still like birds and Plushy so I should stop being so dramatic, perhaps. :OP

And then there's been a huge blow-out in the real life figure skating fandom, which has caused a mass exodus of fans of a particular skater from the forum I visit every day. Man, I've never been involved in a fandom breakdown before. Not a pretty sight, let me tell you. It didn't involve Plushy though! (Although...I am reminded how I find out ages after the fact how the original Plushy fandom kind of imploded way back in 2006 when some of his original fans decided to be jerkasses and ended up hating the very person they once idolised! It was total BS...and way worse since you know, they were is actual "fans" rather than haters).

That was an unnecessary ramble there...

On the upside, I got my flu shot today! My arm is a bit sore, but the doctor was very nice and when I told him I was a disability worker arranged for me to get the shot for free! Also, I got my new script for my anti-depressant, except...they always give you five repeats...so I'm not going to need one when I go and see my psychiatrist later, which will no doubt cause all sorts of confusion.

Anyway, I better be off now, since I got up earlier than usual today. Poor Mrs S though, the bathroom issue at her house has caused a lot of trouble, the original builders of the place seem to not want to take responsibilty for screwing up with construction of the bathroom.

I sure hope that sort of shit doesn't happen in my apartment when (if?) it finally happens?

So yes, on that note, goodnight!

11:08pm: Yep, I've been making up a batch after last week's mix up when I thought my friend's house warming party was on! Had to eat most of those cupcakes myself, which could well explain why - according to the scale at the gym - my fat content has gone up. However...my actual weight has gone down, WTF? That doesn't even make sense...or maybe it does, fat weighs less than muscle. Still seems weird to me though.

Anyway! I gotta make the frosting before I go to bed, which is soon!

I've just remembered though that I forgot to call my other friend about coming to the house warming party! Fuuuck, it's probably too short of notice to do it now, but I guess I'll send her a text tomorrow and see if she's interested in coming.

Well, there's been some interesting developments re: the apartment situation, it would seem that we are going to buy one in the building we were originally looking at, as they've offered to sell a studio apartment that's in it at the same amount as the one in the 'Highline'. I'm still wondering if this is a good idea...I sure as Hell hope the builders aren't a bunch of shonks, I don't want to have to frig around with leaky bathrooms and whatever like Mrs S is right now (I have to come in early on Monday for this very reason, grumble grumble.) Hopefully it'll work out.

Not much else to say...although I had quite the busy day! I went to the mall after work and finally got around to buying some new gumboots, there was however a complete lack of Easter eggs, damn those things disappear so fast now! Sucks.

I also got to the gym, which I'm quite proud of since I've been slacking, plus there's probably going to be a fair bit of junk food in my weekend. :OP Plus there were still some eggs at the IGA across the road so I got some of those.

And there was also dinner at Mum and Dad's place, which the little bro also attended, Mum, Dad and the little bro had quiche while I had left over lasagna, delish! The parentals and I also watched Family Feud it was pretty hilarious as Dad kept ragging on the carry-over champion family who not only ended up winning the car, but finally getting the $10,000 Final Feud amount, LMAO. I told him I'd tell you all about this, so there you go. :OP

OK, the dishwasher which I put the beater whisks in has finally finished its washing so I gotta haul and get the frosting made! And then bed!

And uh...I'll get back to those Memes one day! :OP

11:41pm: Yeah, I've been doing that a bit lately, but that was because yesterday was rather crappy in so far as I managed to forget that I had a shift at the library!!

What makes it even worse is that I had put the detail in my phone, but I had put the wrong times, so when the alert popped up on my phone I thought I must have made a mistake. I did look in my emails, but there was nothing there saying I had a shift either so I figured I'd made a mistake. At least until I got a phone call at 9:45 asking where the Hell I was!

What makes this worse is the fact that the library has been closed since Friday because of Easter, so the amount of items in the after-hours return chute was totally overwhealming! And I was supposed to be there to help get through it so we could keep on top of it all.

I leapt out of bed, had a banana, showered and rushed to the library, but I was still half an hour late and one of the people who normal work in the back room had had to come up to render assistance.

So I stayed half an hour later to make up for my error, but still how humilating! Plus this is like the third time it's happened! I'm getting worried that I'll no longer be considered a reliably employee and this could mean bad things for my future career (such as it is). Ugh! Seriously me, can't I go fail somewhere else?!

After I finished work at the library I went to Dee Why to return the cruise ship book, I was going to try and finish it but...guide books aren't really meant to be read like regular books so I decided nah, I'd just return it. I took a bit of a walk around Dee Why before going to the library, including the new park which opened a few weeks ago. It was a nice sunny day so I figured, what the Hell. :O)

I did neglect to go to the gym though...which I remedied today after work with Mrs S - which reminds me I need to pick up my game there, I keep being five or more minutes late, which doesn't sound all that bad but honestly I literally live around the corner and surely I can do better!

Anyway, apart from that not much to report- tomorrow though is the ice skating show at Macquarie Centre! Yay! I hope Mum feels all right, she's had a cold and last I spoke to her she was sounding rather croaky, but then it often happens that you sound worse, but feel better. I also have to make sure my phone is all nice and charged so I (or Mum) can take video, I've also realised maybe if I can work up the courage I could get a photo with our figure skating Olympian - Brendan Kerry! LOL, there'd be some people on the figure skating board who'd be most jealous. :OP

But there's other stuff to do tomorrow - I want to go to the gym again - because I won't be able to go on Friday because I have a shift at the library - and there's volunteering at Dee Why before I go to Mum and Dad's place to head for the skating show. That being the case I better wrap this entry up and head for bed! I didn't even get 7 hours of zzzzs last night! Not cool, me.

Right, hope you're all well, but for me, for now, goodnight!

11:48pm: Yes! With it being Easter I get the weekend off from the library yet I still get paid! Sweet. Also good because I didn't do my laundry as usual this afternoon once I finished at Mrs S's because when I game home I procrastinated then when I went to my parents place to pick up my water bottle I left my bag behind necessitating a trip back there! Fail, LOL.

Anywho, it's been a good day all in all, although I'm rather sleepy which means this is gonna be a short entry - which considering that I didn't update yesterday is badly done of me! :OP Not that anything super exciting happened yesterday...I did get to have dinner with Mum and Dad before we went to Holy Thursday Mass which was nice.

This morning was interesting, I totally forgot that even though it's Good Friday they still have the Morning Markets at the sporting fields behind Mrs S's place. And because not many things are open today - it's a public holiday - it was a total madhouse there! Heaps and heaps of cars! I left my house a bit late so, you know, I ended up being extra late. Fail again. But Mrs S wasn't too annoyed, plus I got to show her my Pusheen purchases! I still haven't uploaded the photo yet! You'll have to wait on tenterhooks a bit more. :OP

And now, I'm off to bed.

Goodnight all!

11:47pm: Yes! Good news indeed, my friends, after helping Mum out at the school this afternoon I mentioned the window issue to her and by the time I got back to my Granny Flat, Mum was speaking to the landlord (I got stuck behind someone at the a pedestrian crossing) and then we took a look at the window, which was rather awkward because I hadn't finished my cleaning...again. I contend it wasn't that bad though!

Anyway, at first it looked as if I was going to have to wait until tomorrow morning for the window to be fixed, but the landlord found a local glazier who came by this afternoon, took the window pane in question and bought it back an hour late as good as new! Sweeet.

In that time under the direction of Mum I got the place all nicely cleaned up, go me! And she kindly mopped the floor for me after I left to go to Mrs S's so now it's positively sparkly! All right, self, now you just gotta keep it that way!

Anywho, apart from that excitement I don't have much else to report - it's still early afternoon over in Russia so no updates on Plushy and his skating school's official opening, although I'm not sure you're all as excited as me about that. :OP

Also, I though I got enough zzzs last night - I totally slept through my alarm! - but apparently not because I'm yawning a lot and my brain is fizzled out.

So, er yeah, I'm outta here.

Goodnight all!

11:46pm: And asleep by now because I need to get up a bit earlier than usual to get to Mrs S's place half an hour earlier than usual, but I got caught up in reading this book about the 747 and doing my Russian, so I don't have much time to update.

I had a good day! I went over to see my friend in Bigola Plateau which was fun, we hang out and shot the breeze and all that jazz. Good times, good times.

Aside from that, not much else report, I'm just waiting for Cold Case to end so I can get to bed, I haven't seen this episode before so that was pretty cool.

So, this is gonna be a short entry, so sorry about that, I'm sure you're all devastated. :OP

One last thought...when I watch my house shows a lot of people seem to buy houses furnished...is that a thing in the US? I've never heard of buying a house in Australia that's fully furnished. seems really bizzare.

On that mystery, I'm off!

Goodnight!

11:41pm: So it would seem! After a whole week of wet weather it's finally cleared up out there, and now it's almost gone back to summertime weather! I'm sweating here and have had to turn my air-con on. Only downside to that is it still seems to get cold in the late night so I have to grab the doona, but theeen when I wake up I'm all sweaty and gross.

And that's why spring and autumn are a pain in the ass sleepwise.

Moving along, I got the car registered today, I left it at the mechanics and it was ready to go when I finished work at Mrs S's (although for some reason they didn't answer the phone when I called to confirm that, so I was quite relieved when I got there and found out it was indeed ready.

Although my plan to go to Dee Why Library and the Medical Centre before my library shift didn't happen, instead I went after, but sadly...no sign of the Up. I guess I'll never know what happened to it. But if someone picked it up I hope they can at least use it. Meanwhile I've ordered a new Up and magnetic clip thing, although the former is sure to arrive before the latter, I guess the clip it comes with will be OK?

Moving on, the shift at the library went well, lots of books to return and patrons to assist, good times, good times. :O)

And time is getting away from me and I'm going to see my friend tomorrow so I must be off to bed now.

So I say goodnight!

10:57pm: OK, I might be exaggerating a bit on that, but during yesterday's and today's shifts my co-workers all made mention of my hair. I guess the hair cut I got is super stylish. All the same, it's a bit too short, I really must make sure the hairdresser doesn't cut it that short again, the sides keep falling out of my ponytail and trying to go up my nose! It sucks. :OP

Anyway, I ended up missing out on church today, I was planning on going this morning, but I was too slow in getting up and washing my hair and since I would need to catch the bus there I decided nah. Then this evening I called Dad to see if he was going to the 6pm service, but he's got a stomachache so he wasn't which would have necessitated stuffing around with Mum's car and yeah nuts to that.

However, I did manage to catch the wrong bus, it went the back way and while it was driving along I briefly considered going to church Dee Why (it is Lent after all!), but I'd have to take the bus back afterwards and it just seemed like it'd take way too long. So instead I got off at Narrabeen and walked home, stopping by the 7-11 to buy a sausage roll for dinner.

Not much else to report except I need to head to bed now because I'm getting up like half an hour earlier than usual so I can get my car to the mechanics. I'm slightly worried that my luck might continue to be shit and I'll end up not passing the safety check, but I'm sure I'm just being paranoid about that. I'm still worried about what will happen with the fine...for a brief moment I did think about begging the cop to let me off, but he did say he could have given me two tickets (the other for driving uninsured), but he only gave one, so I should be thankful for small favours. :O/ I'm not very hopeful at all that they'll cancel if for me. Suuuucks.

I should stop bitching now and hit the hay, tomorrow is going to be busy with both Mrs S and the library...wish me luck!

Goodnight all.

11:53pm: Because after nearly a year I've...somehow...managed to lose my Up Move! This suuuucks! And it would seem to be because of my new black shorts! I have no idea why but the magnetic holder thingie tended to fall off them. I'm not sure if it's something to do with the material or what? Anyway, I thought I'd managed to solve the problem after it fell of a few times at Mrs S's but when I got home after a day out in Dee Why (I went to the doctor about my thumb) it was gone! When I looked at the app it said it was last seen in Dee Why at 1:53pm! D:

Of course that doesn't necessarily mean it didn't fall off somewhere else, but after calling Mum and Dad (I popped by their place on my way home to help Mum with her iPhone - even though I don't know shit about them) and having them confirm it wasn't there, I got in my car and headed back to where the app said. Alas, I couldn't find it. Of course...I can only imagine if it did just fall off my pants and land on the pavement someone would have picked it up or thrown it out. :O(

My last hopei s that it might have fallen off when I was in the library or at the medical centre, I'll have to call them both tomorrow, otherwise I'll be ordering a new one from Ebay.

In the meantime I've taken out my old activity tracker from Aldi, although it's taking a while to get the app up and running on my phone since I haven't used it in aaages.

Oh wait, here it goes now.

Anyway, I was in Dee Why because I had to take something of Mrs S's there as soon as I finished work and decided not to go home afterwards - although it was a three hour wait. I spent some of that time, shopping, painting over the scratch on my car, in the library, before going to the medical centre.

Alas, the doctor couldn't tell me what if anything was causing my thumb soreness. Except she was pretty sure it wasn't anything serious. It's really weird though, it only hurts if I physically move it by itself, when the doctor used her hand to move it or even if I did it didn't. Which the doc agreed was some weird shit. All that I can do for now is keeping putting the anti-inflammatory gel on it.

So, I better wrap this up and hit the sheets, zzzzs are needed as always!

Goodnight all!
