11:52pm: Right, OK, I have quite a few things to report, but nowhere near enough time to write about it...

First thing's first, I got myself an adorable little two-in-one tablet laptop at JB Hi-Fi yesterday! It was the last one so I got it at a discount, yeeess! However, it asked me to update tonight, which I tried to do only to have the thing throw a complete fit and now I've had to to reset it. Boooo! Not taht I had anything important on it but what a pain in the ass. I think I'll try upgrading it to Windows 10 next time, if possible. Windows 8 is notoriously crap if I remember right.

But OMG, I need to get back into my fic but I keep allowing myself to get distracted! Coe on get with the program me.

On a final note before I have to get my butt to bed and explanation for the subject title...I meant to turn the stove off earlier on, but instead I turned it up or at least not off completely. With it being winter and all I keep the door to the bedroom/living area closed so I didn't realise until my fire alarm went off and opened the kitchen door to find it FILLED with smoke! There wasn't a fire or anything, but my sausages were ruined and I had to open the doors and windows to clear it.

So yeah...massive fail there.

Right so I'm off to bed, at least I can say that I sped-read the latest chapter of the fanfic that's holding the Yuri on Ice fandom in it's thrall. So I can sleep easy. :OP

Now I say goodnight!

11:33pm: Yes indeed! And I think Mum's right, oil heaters really do stop moisture from forming, which is a damn good thing because as I might have mentioned before I've been having trouble with that, like when I wake up in the morning there's so much moisture on the inside of my windows you could get a glass of water from it! It's also having an unfortunate effect of causing mould to appear in my pantry. Gross.

The only downside, I don't think this heater I got has a timer on it and I don't think I should leave it on all night...although maybe it'll work with the timer switch thing...

Also it's meant to have four little wheels, I didn't notice until I got it home that there's only three. I'm having to jack it up using an old glasses case. I got it from the Target at Macquarie Mall (it was ice skating day today :O), so I dunno. I guess I could go to the Target at the Warringah Mall and return it or at least ask for fourth wheel LOL.

Anyway! I have exciting news from the big bro, my parents timing was awesome, he and my sister-in-law, Eri had their baby, it's a boy! They've called him John after Dad (and Dad's grandfather, I think). Which is interesting, because I'm not sure if John can be transliterated into Japanes, I guess he could be 'Jon'. Scratches head.

In other news, ice skating went well! Although I think I'm not used to harder ice, I got them sharpened last week and while I did move better today, it was still a bit scratchy. In the summer the ice is softer because of the sun (or maybe because the ice rink was old? They've renovated) and the blade seems to dig in better. Also they are playing ice hockey there now and if I remember right, ice hockey players prefer harder ice. Dang, don't know what this means for me.

What else? Well tomorrow is the play! So I get the day off work tomorrow, nice :O). I'm planning to go to the gym because I totally slacked off on that this week! Aside from that the day is pretty much free until 3:30 when I go to my Aunt and Uncle's place to get ready to head off. The play starts at 5pm in the city and afterwards we'll go out to dinner. I'm looking forward to it.

That's pretty much all I have to say for now...I'm going to try and catch up on my Positive Notes because I've totally slacked off and need to catch up on three months worth of them! o.O I hope I can!

For now though I bid you all goodnight!

11:38pm: Yes! On the one hand still no luck on the pinstripe pants front, on the other...I got some new work shoes for a bargain price!

The latter is important because as mentioned I went to the podiatrist's today, although I miscalculated how long it'd take me and ended up being late - do'h! - luckily I was able to call ahead and the person who had the appointment before mine arrived early so we swapped them around. Anyway the podiatrist took one look at me walking and declared my orthodics needed immediate adjustment, and also that my shoes weren't the best. Which makes sense I've had them for some time and really one is meant to change shoes once they start to wear down.

So before going to my volunteering at the library I popped into this shoe shop which as far as I've seen is sort of an outlet where shoes are cheaper. At first I didn't see any good deals, but then I saw a little basket where all the shoes were twenty bucks each! And there was a nice pair in my size specifically designed by podiatrists for foot comfort! Niiice, huh?! I wore them to the library and they've proven to be must comfortable, yaaay.

In other news, not much, and I've procrastinated on this update here as usual which means I gotta run, because there's work tomorrow! Plus I'm sleepy. :OP

Sorry for short entry syndrome, LOL!

11:49pm: t-shirt when I saw it in K-Mart this evening! Because, how could I not! Especially since I seem to recall seeing the same shirts last year, but not getting one only to find them all sold out when I went back!

Anyway, it's a men's extra-small, because apparently K-Mart doesn't have BTTF shirts for ladies, which seems quite the rip-off, they have plenty of Star Wars themed t-shirts in the women's section, so why not BTTF. But it fits pretty damn well, so yaaay.

Moving on, my busy day when very well! Although for some reason that may or may not be related my right thumb hurts when I bend it, I have no idea what I could have done to it. I guess I could have picked up some heavy books at work today...Man, I need to figure out some exercises for it, I've been working on my other fingers at the gym with weights, but I have no idea how to get the thumb involved.

Anywho, as you can no doubt see I left it quite a bit late to do this entry so I don't have time to say much more, but my bank card still hasn't arrived! It better come tomorrow otherwise I'm going to have to ring my mother up so she can pay for my hair to be done over the phone (although I've just realised, she's doing so relief teaching tomorrow so she may not be available, shiiit) Plus I haven't actually paid for the reunion! So you know, that'll be kind of awkward.

But, there's still tomorrow! So fingers crossed it arrives! And that my cupcakes turn out well, I got the green food colouring today, must remember not to put too much of it in, last time I used red food colouring it was a bit overkill, LOL!

And now, I bid you all goodnight!

11:11pm: Man, it's been a while since I've had this problem...at least to such an obvious extent - my right ovary be painful. Ouch. Most irritating.

Anyway, it's past 11 and as it turns out I've got a shift at the library tomorrow (yay! But I'm gonna be very very careful avoid speeding or parking tickets here!) which means I need to get up at a proper hour tomorrow.

But, today was a successful day! I managed to get up at 6:40am and got to work at Mrs S's on time - whoo! And Mrs S was ready in time to catch her bus to her appointment so good news!

Plus as I came in early I went home early and was able to do some of my cleaning - although my bedroom area wasn't quite up to my mother's standards, but not too bad and with her assistance (i.e her lying on my bed and directing me :OP) I've got the place looking really nice now. :O)

OH! And before I wrap up this entry I have super exciting news, my Pusheen goodies arrived today! :OD Awesoooome!

First up...Baker Pusheen! She's very small as she's a backpack clip, but still super adorable! Look at her little chef's hat. :OD

Second is the pencil with the 3D Pusheen Topper. Look at her perched on the top there, so cute! :OD

And lastly the sticky notes! The adorableness it kills me.

So, now I have official Pusheen stuff, so exciting!

However, the bank card still hasn't arrived, Mum has lent me 50 bucks, but I really hope the card arrives soon, I need to buy my ticket for the Reunion!

Right, like I said I have to be up at a decent hour so I shall be off now.

Wish me luck at work tomorrow!

11:22pm: In more ways than one, for example I'm already starting this update way too late to write as much as I want about the cruise! I have however began compiling a photo album on GooglePhotos, you can view it here! There's still quite a few photos missing though, I'm not sure why some of them haven't been saved into the Cloud - especially considering the app used up all my mobile data! Seriously! I'm most irritated about that. I thought I told the app not to upload unless I was using wi-fi. So now I have to pay extra this month, how annoying!

Anyway! Today it was back to work with Mrs S, I had a great time telling her about the cruise and showing her the photos I took. Also, the new working arrangements seem to have been sorted out now, although I do need to go for an interview with the new people, I called and left a message telling them to get back to me on that, but they didn't. I guess I'll have to give it a go tomorrow.

Right, I've let myself get distracted as usual and now I'm seriously short on time, I hope you weren't waiting with baited breath for the next installment of my cruising adventure. But hey a good writer builds suspense...or something, LOL.

After finishing with Mrs S I went to Mona Vale to get a new rainbow beach bag - and not a moment too soon, I bought the last one in the shop! I also went hunting for a swimsuit, but I've totally left it too late in the season...having said that I'm not sure any of the shops there even have swimsuits in the peak of summer. Makes me miss that swimwear shop in Dee Why, that was a good place.

Then I went shopping to get more food after the fridge disaster, although I did forget a few things, do'h! Have to fix that tomorrow. And I think I'll have to clear out the freezer too...the defrosted fish doesn't bode well.

Anywho, I better be off! Don't worry I promise I'll write more about the cruise tomorrow, in the meantime though check out the photo album, I'm quite proud of it. :O)

10:58pm: Which I gotta do again tomorrow because there was a mistake today and the nurse who was supposed to come, didn't! Bloody annoying it was too, so now I have to go in early tomorrow as well, which means I really need to get myself to bed. I didn't get enough sleep last night either and with this hot weather I've been quite scattered and a bit whiney (LOL), plus tomorrow I go to my grandparents' place which means Canasta so I have to be awake for that!

Anywho, I'm back here at the Granny Flat, fortunately the cool change has come through so the air conditioner is handling things well in here. Which is a relief! Although, the extremely hot weather is set to return on the weekend, so I'm not sure what will happen then.

Aside from that not much else to report, although I did finally go to the Mall and buy that Glide stuff that cyclists use and with the weather as hot as it was today it wasn't a moment too soon! I also got some shoes that Mrs S saw during the weekend but didn't buy.

Finally, I'm pleased to announce I managed to fit my Christmas decos on top of my second wardrobe here! This is very cool as I won't need to worry about having to get them from M and Grandpa's garage. I also bought more over the door hooks and now my bags are all nicely lined up on the back of the door to my bedroom/living room area.

The one downside of today...I was opening a drawer and pulled it too far out and it fell landing right onto of my right foot (what is it with my right foot?) and it's left a mark as well as a decidedly sore bruise. Well, at least I didn't break anything.

But no more dilly-dallying! It's off to bed!

11:11pm: Yes! I didn't expect it, especially after checking the tracker page this morning and seeing that it was still 'Order Received' and even more so when I got home from volunteering and saw no box - and the landlord's wife didn't come out like she usually does when something arrives for me. So imagine my surprise when I refreshed the tracker page wondering if maybe it'd come tomorrow before it's time to leave for Canberra and seeing that it's listed as delivered!

So I went to the main house and saw through the screen door that yes! The box was there! So I rang the doorbell and the landlady answered and handed it over. Woohoo! I've been setting it up on and off since then. It's really very sleek looking and super fast compared to my old phone! This is really very exciting! And now I get to play around with it on the drive to Canberra.

Speaking of which, I have to keep this entry short because I need to wake up early tomorrow and before going to bed I have to finish packing! I don't want to forget anything.

I will just say there's a cool feature that allowed me to have most of my phone settings installed (like the wallpaper and my contact list) when I started up my new phone. Niiice.

In closing, the Canadian girl did show up to inspect the apartment and Burg seemed to like her so perhaps I won't have to move after all. But she won't be able to give an answer until Thursday, so fingers crossed.

I would also like to say, da-yamn it's hot...maybe I do need to invest in a fan....

10:14pm: I'm trying to upload the videos I took of that epic Christmas lights house that I went to see on Saturday night and promised to show you all, but it's taking a whole damn hour to upload a one minute video to YouTube! Seriously, what the Hell? It's the beginning of the month so I can't have run out of bandwidth and as a general rule the internet is fast enough here, I mean I can watch live TV (although it's not of the best quality).

The only other thing I can think of is the fact I'm downloading from my external hard drive, although it's USB 3.0 which I've been led to understand is quite speedy when it comes to transferring stuff. I guess the only way to find out if that's true is to load the second of the videos onto my actual laptop and upload it from there. but I'll have to wait and see if that can be done...the current video still has 16 minutes to go!

Anywho, what else to report? Well, it was damn hot today! Which was why when Mum said she was going swimming late this afternoon I left my house to go back to the parental place to do so. And before that I've had my air-con running, which I'm relieved to say has been working at keeping me cool. I also went shopping after working at Mrs S's today, incidentally I was surprised they didn't have their air-con on, I actually considered asking them if they could! But it might have just been the nature of the work I do - stuff with the sliding sheet, making the bed etc.

I wonder what it will be like tomorrow? We ended up having quite the thunderstorm as I was driving home from Mum and Dad's bolts of lightning was arcing across the sky. I'm not a big fan of lightning so I was a little but worried, but thankfully I didn't get rained on, although apparently there was quite a storm in these parts, I got an email saying that Mona Vale Library had lost all power! Yikes. Actually, I think it might be raining right now...

I've just checked my phone and apparently it's only going to be 24 degrees tomorrow, which is hardly short weather (although I might do so anyway, since the weather is weird this time of year) and also cloudy, which is not good news for me because I bought some new solar lights, sadly they're not like my Santa lights, which don't seem to exist anymore, but they're super cute! They're called silhoelette lights and as you can see there is a Santa included. However, I can't see if they look like that because there wasn't enough sun today to power the solar battery, bummer.

Anyway, I have to head off soon as Mrs S needs me to come in tomorrow morning and a bit earlier than usual as well and you know what that means, I gotta go to bed earlier.

But before I head off, let's have a Meme or two )

Okedoke, it's past 11 now so off to bed!

Tomorrow I'll hopefully have those videos and I'll link to some of the pages I've coloured from the Pusheen colouring book.

11:35pm: Yes indeed, following the unpleasantness of the world in general this week I decided the time had come...

To purchase a new laptop. As I've mentioned previously, my current one is getting quite long in the tooth and keeps overheating, despite me having bought one of those external fan cooling things.

Actually, I made quite a few purchases today, the reason I was in the position to do such sheninigans is because I finally got around to returning the coat rack to Innovations for Mrs S. I didn't end up getting a refund though because it turned out the light-up Nativity Christmas decoration was still available so an exchange was made instead.

Because of where Innovations is I headed back past the Super Centre in Belrose on my way to the gym, which is where I went on a bit of a shopping spree.

Firstly I got some sandals with an enclosed toe, which will fit my own work requirements (technically, we can wear open-toed shoes, but I feel that's a bad idea when one carries heavy books and pushes wheeled carts) because I'm wearing a skirt tomorrow (it's going to be hot!) and I when I wear my enclosed shoes I end up with feet so sweaty it's gross. The shoes were on special and from Rivers which is a rather cheap place to begin with so they only cost me $22. Hopefully, they'll stay intact and will be comfortable.

Secondly, I went to Spotlight planning to get some pink fabric because I forgot to get some and I'm still hunting for a pink shirt, but alas there was no decent pink fabric that caught my eye (it was like neon!), however I did find some very nice green sheets for $54 - I think the ones I got on Monday are more for winter, so...

And lastly, laptop time! It's an Acer E 15, which means the screen is smaller than my old Acer, but the graphic card and RAM is like twice as fast! Also it's very light! Niiice. It was on special too 15% off. But then again...a lot of places are having sales...practically all the time so who really knows. :OP

Oh I also got a book about IBS which I thought would be helpful and was from one of those discount shops so was only 4 bucks.

After all that, I went to the gym, then home to do my laundry and set up my laptop before heading to Mum and Dad's to have dinner with Dad. I should have called him though because I arrived after 6pm and he'd given up on me! Fortunately, he still made dinner otherwise I'm not sure what I would have. :OP

After dinner - spaghetti bolognaise yum! - we called Mum who is over in Japan and got to see the big brother's house. My niece Emma was looking very well and likes it when people sing to her - except perhaps me LOL. The big bro wasn't there as he was working late, shame. His wife Eri was home and helped with the tour - someone had to hold the iPad :OP. The only downside was the connection suddenly died before Dad and I could say goodbye, whoops. We did at least get to commiserate the US Election result before that happened.

Right! I better go work calls tomorrow after all and it's actually past midnight now!

Goodnight all!

11:56pm: Yes, indeed, I finally got around to going to Innovations to buy some stuff for Mrs S, however before I even headed that way after finishing work I realised I'd forgotten something quite important.

Namely, the hose Mum ordered for my air-con here! OMG! I was meant to pick it up on Friday! And to add to that Mum had never got around to telling me where exactly it was. Fortunately, she did say something about going to the DeLongi website and that the place was in Manly Vale.

After swinging by home to change my clothes and get some more cold water (it was a hot day today!) I found the info for the place and called them up. Fortunately, the air conditioner hose was still there so off I went to collect it. As it turned out the air con unit only comes with one length of hose, which was something Mum and I had worried about. Luckily, I discovered upon arriving home that I was able to attach the two hoses together and now I can put it in the window, hooray!

Then it was on to Innovations where sadly they didn't have half the stuff Mrs S was looking for, or the defrosting tray thing I was planning to get, do'h! They did though have season one of Spin City on special. Cool!

So I was able to get one thing for Mrs S, the other thing will need to be posted out after Christmas and the third thing was completely gone.

So after that I headed off to Spotlight which as I mentioned last night was having a sale, although to be honest they seem to have one every other day. As it turned out, I'd somehow never noticed in all the other times I've been to the Super Centre that right next to the Spotlight is a shop called Pillow Talk which is choc-a-block of bed sheets and whatnot! I did check in Spotlight but ended up buying some very nice green cotton sateen sheets. Yay!

And from Spotlight I got some green and purple fabric, I want to try my hand at making shirts again. Fingers crossed they'll turn out better than the first purple one I made.

I was planning to go to the gym, but by the time I finished all this it was nearly four pm and I wanted to get home, so I'll be heading to the gym tomorrow instead.

And now, I must be off, I'm actually cheating on this entry a bit...it's after midnight, but I shall keep this entry on the 7th 'cause I wanna. :OP

I bid you all goodnight!

11:41pm: Yes indeed, as I mentioned - I think - Mrs S saw some nice 100% cotton bedsheets at Spotlight on special on Wednesday and got a set in aqua for me (I paid her back obviously), however, before they can be used they need to be washed. This is most unfortunate, because the weather sucks today and is set to suck for the rest of the weekend...and I don't have much room in my Granny Flat for hanging stuff. Although the weather wasn't looking too awful this afternoon so I figured I'd tempt fate by washing them and hanging them out. Alas they were still damp when I got home after going to Mum and Dad's place for dinner but I found somewhere to hang them.

So yes, I went to Mum and Dad's for dinner, I wasn't planning to, I'd actually bought fresh fish for dinner, however they had invited my little bro over and since I hadn't seen him ages I cooked up my fish and took it along with me. Although it wasn't completely cooked so I had to finish it up in Mum and Dad's oven. The rest of the family had Chinese, although I had some fried rice and Mum shared my fish. A good time was had by all.

Apart from that, not much to report, which is a good thing because it's nearly midnight! But oh wait I do have one thing to report! Mrs S and I were checking the Strandbags website because she was hoping to see a handbag she wanted. Alas, the bag was not there, but a red bag like the one I have was! This is good news, because my red back is falling apart a bit, I'm not sure why, maybe I overloaded it the first few times I used it? Anywho, it turned out it was on special and you could have it sent to a shop near you so you didn't have to pay for shipping. So after I finished with Mrs S and the gym I headed to Warriewood Square to do some shopping. And as it turned out I didn't need to order the bag online because there was one at the Warriewood shop! What luck because it wasn't there the last few times I'd been in! I bought it, of course, extravagant? Perhaps? Did I care? Nah. :OP

Right, I best be off now!

10:42pm: So today, I received the keys to the Granny Flat and now the process of moving begins! Unfortunately this means packing all my stuff up in the tubs I got from my grandparent's garage and then haul them to my car, drive them down to the new place, haul them out, unpack them, go back to my current Granny Flat and repeat. It's an annoying process and I makes me just want to get a whole lot of boxes and have the movers move them on Thursday, I mean, that's usually how it works isn't it? But that's an expensive option since the movers do charge you by the hour so the more stuff they have to move and unpack the more it costs and it's not like I'm rich. :OP

Anyway, I went and picked up the fold down table and chairs after my performance review today - which went super well, whoo! Seems I've been kicking ass and taking names, but alas, no word on whether I can get any extra hours because of the council's merging, thus there's no Overall Library Manager to run everything right now so...yeah...no decisions on that sort of thing can be made.

So yes, I picked up the table and chairs and Mum picked up the recliner I got from Vinnies on the weekend and we met at the new Granny Flat to start putting stuff together. Actually, I got there quite a bit before her and got bored waiting by my car (I was able to carry the chairs in myself, but the box the table was in weighed more than 30kg!) and was making a start on assembling the first chair when she arrived.

We wiped down the dusty parts of the recliner, rearranged the kitchen a bit - moved the pantry shelf thing and the oven and got to work on the chairs which we successfully assembled, yay! :O)

Then it was onto the table! Which was quite a production, luckily Mum bought over two toolboxes and we were able to find two screwdrivers - and later three - so we could work together. It's a damn spiffy table! I took some photos but my phone is charging right now so I can't upload them right now.

We managed to finish up as the sun was going down, but tomorrow, Thursday and Friday is going to be super busy indeed. Man, I hope I can take it! :OP Although on Thursday my new (second hand) whitegoods will arrive at the new place which is good news as well as my bed so I guess I'll start sleeping there.

Anywho, I better wrap this entry up I keep going to bed too damn late and this can't be a good idea. I'll end up with a headache or something.

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!

11:41pm: Well, I didn't forget so much as procrastinated the Hell out of doing so and now it's too late really! Or at least too late to write anything interesting.

I finally washed my sheets today along with my other laundry though, yay! And it turns out the Land Lady has been out of town for the past week, which explains why no-one answered when I knocked on their door during the week. But it is indeed a relief to finally have the sheets done, they also dried super fast because it's been really windy this evening, actually I might have taken them down a bit too soon, but I was slightly concerned they might blow away during the night or that it might rain.

In other news, I also finally got my soap dispenser from Target at the Mall, less fortunately though my abdominal area decided to be a complete bastard so I didn't stick around to try and find a new pair of sneakers. I even stopped at my parent's place on the way home figuring I'd eat some bread there or at least relax for bit - I tried doing that in the Dee Why Library parking lot, but it didn't really work and I didn't want to sit there for too long.

I didn't think Mum would be in, but she was, so that was nice, I helped her out a bit with the training course she's doing as part of her job as a carer. Or support worker? I'm not entirely sure what she's called, probably the later because she doesn't actual do personal care.

I also had my bread and then got myself home, finally! However, I left the book I was reading behind! Boooo! I'd stopped reading it right in the middle of something so that sucked, but fortunately, I'll be seeing Dad tomorrow at the Parish Anniversary Celebration so I should be able to get it back then (note to self: ring Mum tomorrow re: that).

Oh well, that does give me the chance to read some of my other books, I've still got three others from the library to go!

Right, better be off now!

Goodnight all!

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!

Goodnight

10:11pm: Yes! Thanks to the manual I bought from the sewing site, I've been able to get the overlocker my aunt gave me all those months ago to work! So cool! :OD I can't wait to overlock my purple shirt hems to keep them from fraying and stuff. You're supposed to be able to create a rolled hem with it, but it needs a different foot for that and alas that's not with it. I guess I could ask my aunt if it's it's in her house somewhere.

Moving on, I decided to buy the sausage dog print pjs! It turned out a little different than planned though, because the Target at Warringahh Mall only had a top in size 12, somehow the pants had gone missing. I considered buying a size 14 instead...but decided to go with just the top because that meant I got it for half price, although it did leave me without pants!

However, I solved that problem when I went to Warriewood Square which I went to because I had some things from Coles, and the one I went to in Dee Why didn't have any of my bread left and I also went to the K-Mart there and found some awesome PJ pants.

Who says cats and dogs don't get along! :OD Pretty fab, no? So fab in fact that I changed into them when I got home after having my shower - I'd planned to go to the gym today, but my lower leg is still sore - at 3pm!

I'm planning to go to the gym tomorrow, but I'm a bit concerned about the state of my place, I've been slacking again. I really need to stop doing that. :OP

Anyway, I better wrap this entry up, but before I do - here's the Meme:

Drama

1. What was the last stage play you saw? Gee...I think it might have been Snugglepot and Cuddlepie, which was based on a children's book by May Gibbs, it was pretty good!

2. Which film genres do you like most, and which least? Like most: Comedy (although not gross-out comedy) Like Least: Horror, don't even wanna watch that.

3. Why do some people seem always to have some kind of drama in their lives, while others apparently have very little? Dunno...I guess some people are more likely to talk about it? Or know a lot of people or like to live on the edge. Other people are less likely to talk about what's going down with them.

4. One element of classic tragedy is the hero’s tragic flaw. What’s yours? Procrastination, I fear! :OP

5. What are some lines of a play’s or film’s dialogue you can recite from memory? "If my calculations are correct...when this baby hits 88 miles per hour...you're gonna see some serious shit." Doc Brown Back to the Future is the first that comes to mind!

OK better head off, all this talk of cleaning makes me want to tidy up the house a bit before I go to bed!

Goodnight all!

10:58pm: Afternoon tea, that is, and the fourth person wasn't Grandpa - he did play golf today after all - but my Great Aunt Margaret, who also lives on the Northern Beaches not all that far away.

So after finishing with Mrs S this morning I hurried on home to begin cleaning, fortunately as mentioned I've been very good with keeping the place generally tidy, so I was able to straightening everything pretty quickly. Then I had to do actual cleaning - wiping down surfaces as Mum says as well as vacuuming and finally mopping the floor.

I ended up leaving half an hour earlier than I should have - that's one way to be on time! - as it turned out though, I needed to stop by the Vinnies in Narrabeen because as Mum reminded me I didn't have a milk jug or sugar bowl. There were actually a few there, but they were either part of sets or like 20 bucks each! I guess the later was because they were pretty nice ones. However, I did find two little glass milk jugs for 5 bucks each so I purchased those. Unfortunately, for me I managed to break one of them when I got home! Hmpf! Smooth move, me. However, I have a small bowl anyway, so I used that for the sugar, which I guess turned out for the best. Putting sugar in a jug is a bit odd.

Anyway! After buying the jugs I headed onwards to the school, parking in the shopping area across the road and reading my book until it was time to head on over. By this point it had started to rain again, which may have contributed to the class being rather unruly today and for some reason kids kept leaving the class to go to the bathroom! That's never happened before...I think maybe the fact there was a substitute teacher today might have had to do with it. Or maybe the weather too, if it was pouring down at lunchtime the kids probably didn't want to go out in it to get the the toilet block.

The rain had pretty much let up on the drive home, but the traffic was not that good, so it took Mum a while to get to my place with M. Also Aunt Margaret went the wrong way so she was also a bit late, however! That did give me enough time to make the cupcakes look all nice with the cream. :O)

M was also getting rid of some old cups and saucers, and since I have none, she brought them over for me to have. There's a mix of them, but they're all very nice, although I'm not sure how often I'll get to use them since I don't drink tea! And my hot chocolate would probably fill three tea cups, LOL.

Oh and Mum also bought some egg sandwiches she'd made, so a very civilised afternoon tea was enjoyed by all. :O) They also let just in time for me to watch my Letters & Numbers.

Mum did look at my purple shirt, but aside from suggesting I go to a sewing class or something she couldn't advise me much. She didn't seem to think it would be ridiculously short on me though, so I have hopes.

On the downside, despite attempting to follow the instructions in the manual I downloaded I can't get the automatic button hole function to work. I'll have to do it by hand, and also redo the buttons, because I sewed them just tonight, but not in a completely straight line. Obviously this is what rulers are for. Man, I really need to embrace the measure twice, cut/do once.

Okedoke, better wrap this up, as soon as Air Crash Investigations is over I have to hit the hay! I hope to have more about my shirt tomorrow.

For now, goodnight!

11:39p: Yes! Bloody disappointing it is too, I've always said that I've rarely if ever encountered fandom wank in any of the fandom's I've been in, but it finally happened to today. :OP Not that it actually involved me, but I had to unfollow their Tumblr because OMG so boring and irritating to watch.

Anyway, moving on from that crap, I picked up Mum today, yay! She got me some stuff from Japan (all the best stuff is from there ;O) but I haven't taken a picture of it...I'll get back to you on that. It was great to see her, although I might have talked her ear off a bit, at least until she went to take a nap and I headed off.

But I gotta say, finding rhinestones for Plushy plush is proving to be very difficult! The closest I could find to them at the Mall were ones that you need to stick on with your own glue one by one. They're like twelve bucks for a pack of twenty! Nuts to that. I tried another discount shop in Narrabeen, I even went all the way to Mona Vale to check the fabric shop, but nope. I either have to order them on the web, go to Chatswood or go to Spotlight. Well, fine, if they're gonna be that way :OP, I'm thinking I might go tomorrow, although I'm a bit worried the traffic will suck since I need to get to church for a meeting of SRE people by 11:30. Last time I headed for Mona Vale Road in the morning, it was slow going. Hmmm, perhaps I should simply wait until I'm heading that way to go ice skating. Decisions will have to be made...and I hate making decisions. :OP

I also need to buy some special glue, Plushy plush's skates are falling off again...I hope this isn't some sort of sign...

In other news, my knees hurt...that time o' the month is approaching, booo. Honestly, I have no idea why I get joint pains in this situation. I blame society :OP

Oh I almost forgot! I didn't find any rhinestones, but I did find something awesome in the Narrabeen Vinnies. Chip and Dale soft toys! OMG, so exciting! I've always loved them, I used to have bigger Chip and Dale soft toys, but I'm not sure what happened to them. Actually, I did lose Dale on a plane, but Mum and Dad got me another one at EuroDisney. But as I said I've got no idea where they are now.

Right! I better head off now, it's almost midnight, lucky for me I remembered to do my Russian so I don't have to worry about losing a day, yay! :O)

Goodnight all!

10:58pm: Because they advertised Death in Paradise as if it was a new show when in fact it's been going for like five years! Which anyone who watches the ABC would know. Is Channel 9 suggesting their viewer demographic don't watch the ABC? I'm quite sure everyone in Australia watches the ABC at some point.

Now I'm watching a show about Million Dollar Rooms and m confused as to how one can have a mansion with 6 bedrooms but 12 bathrooms? What does every room come with two bathrooms? That's a bit extreme... although must be a great place for big parties! No long lines there. :OP Although the mansion on the whole is pretty nuts, it's got a fireplace in it! Some people have way too much money.

Moving on! I got to the breakfast at the library this morning, it was quite a spread! There were crossiants and a fruit platter, all very delicious. The Library Manager was there to discuss the possible changes that may occur as a result of the amalgamations, he was pretty sure all us 'front-line' workers would be OK, in fact it seems that more positions could be created as a result of amalgamation. I'm not sure about that, since the whole idea of merging councils is to 'save' money, which usually translates to people losing their jobs. We'll have to see.

I also did a bit of shopping, which was a success! I found a chicken teapot cozy at Salvos- you may well ask why I'd get one of those when I don't even drink tea, but Mrs S has one for her fruit bowl and it's so cute! Obviously the fruit bowl cover chicken is different, it has an opening in the side to get the fruit out, the teapot cozy was too cute!

I also had to buy some pants there, because I didn't have any decent ones to wear today so had to wear a pair of size 10s, suffice to say I am not a size 10 and they were most uncomfortable. Although the size 12s got sit a bit high for me, most annoying.

Then I popped by the Variety Shop on the way to the gym where I bought some more fake flowers and a small clock for the bathroom. The clock was quite a find! It has one of those sweeping second hands so it doesn't tick! Sweet! Hopefully, it'll keep on working.

The gym went very well too, so now I feel all physically refreshed and whatnot, although I did some exercises that are supposed to test your muscle groups to see what needs work and...I basically need to do work on all of them. Hmpf, typical.

I popped by the Dee Why Grand on the way back so I could get ingredients for pizza, which I made tonight and then proceeded to burn the roof of my mouth on. Do'h! Hopefully, those sorts of things heal quickly, so fingers crossed it'll be gone when I get up tomorrow.

Speaking of tomorrow, the morning course for being a Special Religious Educator - or in my case an assistant - so I better hit the hay, gotta keep up with my sleep!

But a meme or two first )

Right! That's my cue to exit!

Goodnight all!
