10:44pm: So I went to my dental appointment and now I've got my new mouth guard, I think it's actually called a splint, but whatever. It's just for my upper teeth, which is cool and it seems to fit pretty well, although it's rather tough to get out, but maybe that's just because I'm not used to it, LOL. At least I hope so, because I'd hate for it to get stuck in there!

What else to report? Well, I'm still procrastinating on calling my friend! And also the HR people at the council - except I can't seem to find the number for the latter, so how the Hell am I supposed to call, very annoying.

I'm also veeeery slowly working on the fic, I think I might be letting myself get too bogged down in how the story is going to flow when I finish and post it for others to read. Except...obviously no-one's gonna read it if I never finish it! So, I need to set that aside, could be easier said than done! Perhaps I should treat it like NaNo. :OP

Anywho, I better get to bed, it's going to be a busy day tomorrow, what with Mrs S, the scripture class and Mum coming by to look over my house and rate it tidiness, or lack thereof. :OP

Oh I almost forgot! More swimming today at Mum and Dad's place, good times! Also, it was a bit of a close thing, but I managed to get to work at the library on time! (I need to change the time my alarm goes off!)

So goodnight all!

10:53pm: So I finally got off my butt and made a dental appointment, which was today at 3pm. Since Sunday my tooth has been feeling better but I was still kind of worried I might have developed a cavity and I was rather nervous when I got the dental office.

There was good news and bad news, the good, despite my lack of check-ups over the past...um probably five years, my teeth are in good condition, they just needed some cleaning and a fluoride treatment.

The bad news? Well, the pain in my teeth is not from a cavity, its from teeth grinding! And unfortunately it seems it must be happening at night since my teeth are showing quite a bit of sign of grounding. Dang, I always thought teeth looked sort of jaggered anyway, but yeah no.

So, the dentist recommended I get a splint, Grandpa has one, although I'm pretty sure his if for snoring more than teeth grinding. It's about four hundred and fifty dollars to get one made, although my private health insurance should cover a fair bit of it. So instead of coming back later to get the moulds done - because why do that? - I returned to chair and had done then and there. Praise the Lord for dental advancement, last time I had a mould taken of my teeth it took like half an hour and it was horrible! It was still unpleasant but only took ten minutes.

Anyway, the upshot is that I have to go back next Tuesday when the splint should be ready and hopefully will be comfortable, I can't even even stand to have a tongue depressor put in my mouth so I'm a bit concerned...but I guess I'll get used to it.

I'll keep you all updated!

Anyway, I better be off, I didn't get quite enough sleep yesterday - shakes head - so I better make sure I catch up on it.

Oh! I almost forgot! Having stayed over at the parentals last night I went swimming in the heated pool with Mum at the Retirement Village - man it's been aaages since I've gone swimming. And before that we went to the weekly morning tea in the common room thing which involved scones, most delicious! :O)

Goodnight all!

11:35pm: In typical style Centrelink has decided to be an absolute pain in the ass and ask me to confirm stuff that happened years ago, in one case more than FIVE years ago. Like for real?!

Even worse, because I don't have bank statements or payslips from that long ago I can't do it online and instead have to call those people. Centrelink is known for being absolutely useless when it comes to answering the phone. People have been on hold with those people for hours. Son of a bitch. I got other things to do!

Anyway, in less irritating new, Mum's back! She managed to make quite a mess of what time her flight was so at first she said she was coming in at about 9am then it was 7am and then...back to 9am! I guess her phone didn't take into account the time zone change.

This meant that I didn't actually need to go over and stay at my grandparents place last night, but I'm glad I did. M and I finished our Canasta game with M managing to snatch the win, do'h!

Anyway Mum was picked up without a problem and the library shift this afternoon went quite well too :O) I finally got around to putting my plastic bags in the recycling bin at Coles.

And lastly...I've forgotten what I was about to say..oh yeah, turn out I was missing winter clothes and they were in a box in M and Grandpa's garage, I've got them back now. Although winter is almost over, although it was pretty cold today so I think I'll still get good use out of them.

Anyway, I better get moving, tomorrow's going to be busy with my pyschiatrist appointment and calling Centrelink ugh. Wish me luck!

Goodnight all!

11:50pm: By work I mean write and by conditions I mean my digestive system deciding to be a complete asshole. Why you gotta hurt at such inopportune moments, gut? You suck and I'm offended.

I'm also starting this update way too late, do'h! Not that I have much to report, except...the landlord came in while I was out today (I gave him permission) to fix the tap...problem is...he didn't fix it and he also put the knob thing back weirdly, now it doesn't match the hot water knob, I have to turn them in two different directions! This is really confusing, seriously! But, I'm not sure I can really bring it up with the man, it's awkward. I'm starting to think I should just pay for a plumber to come and fix the dang thing myself. Sure, it's technically the landlord's responsibility but I'm getting a Hell of a good deal on rent here so, you know, maybe it's all fair in the end.

What else to report, well, I did spend quite a bit of time on the phone to Dad this evening, he was at Newtown, getting the place ready for the new tenants is proving to be quite difficult and poor Dad keeps having to do stuff! Also the last tenant or maybe the one before that did something weird to the internet and now he can't seem to connect. I tried to talk him through it over the phone, but no luck. He did talk to Mum later on though and when I called her myself she said that the new tenants who have just moved in seem to be a bit more tech-savvy so fingers crossed they can figure it out. Otherwise I'll have to go over there after skating tomorrow - I have to go to Macquarie Centre tomorrow because my beanie is being held at the shop for me!

Anywho, I should head off to bed because work calls tomorrow and all that jazz. I really hope I'll be able to write tomorrow! Come on me, I can do it, LOL!

For now, goodnight!

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!

11:34pm: Indeed! I couldn't remember when I last updated so I just checked and I haven't since Friday! Dang.

Well, first things first, on Friday I got a call from the HR people while I was at the gym, no dice with the job, apparently my lack of experience with children's events and my somewhat simplistic answers to interview questions (I'm not entirely sure what that was all about) dooed me. I say boo! But on the other hand there was no promise of it been made permanent and even if it did I'd have to reapply for it. Screw that shit.

I wonder though, if there's going to be an attempt to break up the amalgamated council, several of them have been fighting the State Government and the premiere has backed down! Of course, this doesn't affect the all ready merged ones, but the Pittwater people are still seriously pissed about what's gone down. But it'd be quite a bru-ha-ha.

Then there was the get together on Saturday, although I got a call on the way there from Mum, apparently Dad wasn't well! It was bad enough that he called the home doctor to come and see him. Mum thought he might have to go to the hospital for tests! Fortunately it wasn't as bad as all that, apparently Dad had been worried he was having a stroke or something, but it turned out to be a stomach virus. He's much better today - which I know because I'm here at the parental abode for my usual Monday night staying over, despite Mum being away.

He cooked my dinner so er...I hope he's properly recovered, gulp! It was a yummy dinner though sausages, boiled potatoes and beans.

But the get-together was good! I had no idea Ben lived so close to the big shopping centre, we went down there and I went to Jay-Jays, but the Pusheen water bottle I wanted wasn't in stock. Bummer.

And then we hung out and chatted as we do. :O) And had a dinner cooked by Ben - an interesting concoction of rice and sausages, LOL.

Anywho, I'm rather sleepy so I bet head off now, gotta get my beauty sleep!

Goodnight all!

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!

11:37pm: I don't have much to say about today, the usual stuff happened, volunteering at the library, getting up late, LOL. I did have to go see Mrs S for a little bit, but that was really the only change in the typical routine of the day.

But OMG I almost forgot to mention the most important thing! I got a phone call from Manly Library today, they want me to come in for an interview next Wednesday! They asked if I wanted to do it 2pm but I've asked for 4:30pm instead since I'm supposed to help Mum out with Scripture Class, even though yesterday she wasn't able to do it because she got called in for substitute teaching at the high school in Mosman. Instead she got Dad to fill in for her, I'm surprised she managed to convince him, since Dad has been less than enthused about it, I went early to help him with both classes although he didn't really need me that much. Interestingly enough Year Two class seemed easier to handle, I guess they were all intrigued by the guitar,they all enjoy singing in that class. The aim was to teach them the Hail Mary, which I think Dad did, so with any luck they'll remember next week.

But yes, an interview for a library assistant job! Hooray! It's been a while though so I better work on my interview skills which I feel let me down a lot. With any luck Mum might be able to drive me to Manly afterwards so I can at least know if my hair is nice.

Anywho, time is swiftly moving and I need to get my zzz's! That being the case I'm gonna short entry this sucker and head for bed!

10:56pm: Well, I didn't get to updating this yesterday, but let me just announce...

Roger Federer is the GOAT! He won his 8th Wimbledon Title on Sunday and is the BOOSSSS of tennis! What a guy! You gotta love him! :OD

And apparently he plans to come back to Wimbledon next year! We'll have to see though. :O)

Moving along, I ended up staying over at the parental abode last night as well, because Mum and I watch Have You Been Paying Attention?, such hilarious times! Although I realised I left my cupcake tray behind, whoops. I'm sure Mum will bring it over tomorrow since she'll be coming over after Scripture Class, which means I need to clean this place up. I've been working on it...slowly, but I'm really going to need to pull my finger out after finishing work with Mrs. S.

What else to report? Nothing much, worked at the library this afternoon, it was kind of boring because they had Duke of Edinburg students volunteering, which means they did the shelving rather than me. Also, I was so close to finishing the book I've been reading, which I borrowed from there and was hoping to return, I've finished it now, but I don't if I should go return it tomorrow since I need to go to the supermarket, however as I said I need to clean my house!

I guess I don't need to return it, but I've had it out for quite a while and I feel rather bad for hogging it. But what can you do?

Right, I better wrap this up because I need to get ready for bed and do my Russian practice.

Wish me luck with my cleaning!

11:29pm: The Fed-Express! He's at Wimbledon right now, playing for what could be his 8th Title! Of course, I'm not gonna be able to watch the whole thing because it's only just started and I suck at staying up late even if it's only for one night.

He's just broken serve, but who knows what's going to happen because he's up against a tough competitor! Not Nadal, but a super tall guy from Croatia who has beaten him once. So fingers and toes.

So, I'm here at Mum and Dad's place so Mum and I can watch the Final together, Mum suggested having a Wimbledon inspired supper of finger sandwiches, vanilla cupcakes with jam and cream and strawberries and cream. Very elegant! Mum took a photo of me, but it's not my best angle, LOL! I'm also wearing the Tennis T-shirt I got many years ago, hopefully it'll be good luck.

Anywho, I better make this entry quick as time is getting on and having done my Russian yet (I forgot yesterday and lost my eight day streak, boo) and my tablet battery is getting rather low.

Plus, it's not like I have much to report, I went to church, went to work, made the cupcakes and came over here.

And whoot! Fed-Ex has taken the first set, come oooon you can do it!

And now I shall wrap this up, goodnight all!

11:12pm: Whoops, I haven't updated for a couple of days, which I totally didn't plan on, but I have a good reason! I've been writing a fan fic! It's going pretty well so far and man it's been while since the good ol' writing bug hit me. It's nice! Also in surprising news, I've actually plotted this one out mostly, which I usually never do, I hope it will actually work.

I kind of wanted to post it as soon as I finished the first chapter because I'm excited, but I put out a general ask on my Tumblr about it and one of my mutuals felt that it's better to have the story completed, just in case you want to change something in an earlier chapter. Plus, if you're going to do a chaptered story you probably should have it finished, in case you never do finish it. Nothing worse than an incomplete fan fic and I do actually have a couple of those myself. I mean I know how they end and all, but anyone who read it? Well I'm sure they're most disappointed. So get with the program, so let's hopefully avoid that.

Anyway, moving along, it was a good night hanging with my parents last night, well mostly with Mum since Dad usually turns in at like 8pm, we watched Have You Been Paying Attention?, ah so funny! I think I'll head over there on Monday nights, especially since after next week I'll be able to go to the proper bed in the spare room. Heh.

And it's getting late, and I really need to get my ass to bed as soon as Cold Case ends, because I've been staying up too late the last few weeks after watching it. So I literally need to be lyind down and ready to turn the lights out.

Not much else to report today anyway, although I did get some cleaning done, it's not quite to Mum's standard so I need to finish up that tomorrow before the Scripture class.

I've also let the deadline pass for that library job, but I'm not too bummed, like I said I'm pretty sure I wouldn't have got a call. I've applied to so many jobs in my life and to be honest I don't feel like wasting time apply for one I just don't have the skill set for. I am supposed to be applying to some jobs though, come on Moose get off your ass.

For now though, I say goodbye!

10:45pm: Well that sucks...I was all set to start my application for the library technician job, but as I read over the position description I realised...well shit...I don't actually have the skillset! This is a damn shame and also a bit embarrassing since I mentioned I was going to apply and now, well I look kind of dumb.

I had no idea library technicians were supposed to know about creating programs for the community and knowing about reading advisories and all that jazz. But I suppose that makes sense, the Librarian looks over everything, the library assistant follows instructions and the library technician is the person in the middle. To be honest I'm not the sort of person who wants to work on complicated projects and shit, I'm too lazy for that kind of effort. I probably shouldn't say that though...

Moving on, I did get the other stuff I wanted to do today, like go to the gym and go shopping - I was out of cheese! While doing that I decided I'd try my hand at making something new for dinner, beef stroganoff. I've had it before of course, but not in some time! I got the idea from Mrs S who had it for dinner last night (she has it quite often actually) so I got the sauce and fetticine and cooked it up tonight. It was pretty good! I should add to my repitore!

What else to report? Well, I haven't finished cleaning which is the story of my life because I'm a lazy ass :OP but seriously, I need to pick up my game because I'm pretty sure Mum will be visitng the place tomorrow and also it's pretty uncool to leave clothes and stuff on the floor. Although I've said it before and I'll say it again, I don't know how that stuff ends up on the floor, I don't remember putting it there.

Oh! And I don't have the photos, but yesterday when I went to the mall to collect Mrs S's new portable oven I went to the Pop Culture shop there...and they had Pusheen stuff! I couldn't resist! I bought a pencil case and the small regular Pusheen plush, they're both sooo cute! Although I probably shouldn't be buying stuff, but sometimes you gotta treat yo'self as they say.

Anyway, I better wrap this up, I have to get to bed soon (although, honestly I should be in bed now, I'm not gonna get my 8 hours!) and trim my fingernails again...why the Hell do they keep growing so fast, meanwhile my hair is taking forever to grow out. Annoying.

11:27pm: Indeed! I finally got around to making a card for the occasion! I pride myself on my homemade cards, but I've been slacking on them lately. But I made one for Mum, yaaay! Although not for my little bro, who's birthday was yesterday. I thought I was going to see him at the Mother's Day Brunch at my Uncle's place but alas he's sick and wasn't able to come (sick for your birthday, that suuucks), so I called him to wish m a belated birthday. I left him a message at first since he didn't answer, he called me later though.

Sadly the weather was not very nice today, all rainy in fact when I drove over to my uncle's place it was totally bucketing down, I couldn't even hear the radio over it! Luckily, it let up but it was still pretty dreary.

However, work at the library was still pretty busy because it was Code Club day, which is a monthly computer thing that is popular with kids - there were thirty of them there this time! However, my feet were positively aching by the end of the shift. However, they're fine now...so I don't know if this is a sign of an issue with the shoes or if I'm just adjusting to the orthodics or what? It's puzzling I tells ya! The shoes are stiffer than the ones I had before, so maybe I just need to break them in?


What else to report? Not much, which is good since it is getting late and I should be getting ready to hit the hay and since I'm at my parental units' place I need to get the couch ready to lie on :OP

Before I do that though...drumroll please...a Meme!

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!

Goodnight all!

11:41pm: Yes, I am trying to keep a schedule of updating every second day, because...uh...I dunno, I'd rather do every day, but you know me, I get distracted so easily.

So I didn't update yesterday, so today is supposed to be the day, but I've got this niggling headache which hasn't gone away even though I took some Neurofen a few hours ago. Rude! I took two tablets and everything! What's the deal? I am wholly disappointed.

Anyway, yesterday I had planned to do some stuff - maybe even ring my friend up and see her, but the weather turned from sunny to rainy half way through the day and then my eyeballs decided to go all dry and I was just in a whole lot of discomfort, grumble grumble.

That time o' the month is due today so I keep expecting it to sneak up on me any second now, but thus far it is elusive. More rudeness!

But, I did at least get some cleaning done, although it was not to Mum-standard, however poor Mum still has her cold so she couldn't be bothered to tell me off too much, LOL. I shouldn't be mean though, because she decided to go over my resume for me so I could email it to a pharmacy - there's an ad in the paper, which is lacking in any detail whatsoever so I've been procrastinating on it. Then, the case I got for my external hard drive decided to break (man, I'm having no luck with those!) and it has all my updated resumes so the whole updating was being a pain...

So I ended up emailing one of my older resumes to Mum and she sent a new one back to me, I'm not entirely sure about it actually...it seems to break all the rules of resume making I was taught during my years of job hunting. On the other hand, Mum has no problems getting work whereas I flail around so who knows. I had to add more info to it of course and Mum wanted to see it so I still haven't emailed it yet. I should check the Manly Daily to see if the ad is still in there...

What else to report? Not much, I went to Warriewood Square hoping to find some cheap Easter eggs, although like I said they don't leave them on the shelf for very long these days and I had no luck, boo! However! I remembered that IGA had eggs for quite some time, being a small independent supermarket, so after I went out to get a new case for my external hard drive (only 20 bucks!) I went via the one near my gym and there was indeed eggs - or rather bunnies to enjoy, yum! (Although the Red Tulip ones don't seem as good as these days, or at least the smaller ones don't, weird).

Righto, it's getting late now and I need my sleepy times so I shall be off!

Goodnight all!

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!

anonymoose_au: (Hey! Bitches)
11:34pm: I did plan on updating yesterday, but I had to get to bed early after Monday's night/Tuesday morning's shocking lack of sleep so I didn't. But here I am today, which I'm sure you're all super excited about :OP

Actually, I do have some odd news, I bought up the idea of paying to go on a trip to Japan to see Plushy at an ice show (and you know, see my big bro and his family) and she seemed totally onboard with it! The downside is...Mum and Dad aren't actually going to be there at the time (I thought they would be, but I miscalculated) or rather there will be a show, but it's like a seven hour drive from where they'll be - or a one hour flight, but I'm not made of money, gee!

Now Plushy will be doing a show in China in August, when Mum plans to go back to Japan after my bro's second child is born and she suggested we could catch a plane via Beijing. Which is all very cool except...Mum's going to be out of the country for a month, which I obviously can't do so I would have to fly home by myself. Which...I don't think I can do...not because I'm terrified of the plane crashing but because I don't really think I could go on such a long trip in an inescapable mode of transport without freaking out.

Also...I've kind of remembered that the other carer is going home to see her family later this year, perhaps in August, in which case it'd make life difficult for Mrs S trying to find two carers to replace!

Aaah, I dunno...what should I do I wonder? Ideally I want to go to see a Japanese ice skating show and go when Dad goes as he wouldn't stay anywhere near as long as Mum would so I can get the plane back with him. Or should I like, suck it up or get something to knock me out on the plane (do they even let you do that? What if there's an emergency?) because hey at least Mum's on board with the idea?

Bah! I dunno.

In other news, I took a rather cute photo of myself in my new Pusheen gear, but the photo's on my phone and I tried posting to Tumblr with it (so I could link to it later here) but it wouldn't post. Ruuuuude. But with only ten minutes to midnight I don't have time so you'll have to wait with bated breath. :OP

And the meme as well for that matter, LOL.

Ah well, you can only do your best.

For now, though, goodnight!

11:37pm: In Equador? I'm watching House Hunters International and apparently in Equador (and other places I suppose?) they don't have regular hot water, they just put heating wires around the actual shower head. Like WTF? I don't even understand how that would work without electrocuting you first time. Seems it must though. Crazy all the same if you ask me.

Anyway, not much to report I got to work at Mona Vale today early...real early as it turns out as I wasn't on today! WTF? How embarrassing! I felt pretty silly, especially since I bought a sausage roll for break time before going in. There wasn't any mini-sausage rolls there, but the owner kindly let me have a normal sized one for the same price!

So, once I discovered that I wasn't on at Mona Vale, I realised that meant I needed to do my volunteering! So it was off to Dee Why Library for that. On the plus side, at least that meant I could return the stuff I borrowed there personally because I'm still not sure if returning them at Mona Vale means they'll get checked in that same day. Because Dee Why Library doesn't let staff avoid overdue fees, which is pretty rude when I think about it...

Anyway, the volunteering went OK, although I don't feel like I got as many selections done as I should have, oh well. Once I finished I popped by the parentals on the way home to try looking for my sunglasses, but no luck. While there though Mum gave me some concerning news about my apartment, the agent had actually called me while I was driving to the library to ask for Mum's number so she could tell here something and I found out what it was.

They hadn't actually got the DA entirely approved by council when they were selling the apartments! So instead of a 15 storey tall building, they can only do a 7 storey one! Which means a whole lot of apartments will no longer exist! There's no word on whether mine will be one of these, but seriously what the fuck? I guess that news article wasn't wrong! Buying off the plan is risky. Now if the apartment does disappear we can get our money back, but I'm most irritated because the deposit we paid could have been in our bank accounts gaining interest. Instead the building company gets it! I've heard about that bullshit before, not cool not cool at all.

So, now I have to wait and see what happens.

On the upside I found my sunnies! I turned out I'd left them in the shopping bag with my new swimsuit - so it was here in my room this whole time! How embarrassing - again! I actually thought about that this morning but I'd forgotten where the bag was...so that was another worry until I found it again. But yes everything is back in hand.

Anyway, it's coming up on midnight so I better haul butt, good news, though, Plushy's grand opening of his skating school went super well and there was cake and everything! Yum! Except now I want cake ;O)

But yes, on that note, I'm out!

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!
