11:15pm: Not much to report, although, I did finally get to the alterations place to get my pants taken in...all up this is going to cost like $60, which you know is like 10% of that one pair of pinstriped pants I saw on the net, LOL. (Seriously, they were Chanel and the only pants that came up on the Google search...I always though pinstripes were timeless!)

I also did my extra volunteering at Dee Why Library since I missed out on doing so last week, which is why I was in Dee Why to drop of my pants in the first place. There seems to be a lack of people working at the Home Library Service right now, so there was a heap of selections to do. Unfortunately, I got caught up with one particular client so I only did about three, boo.

Anyway, I also had success with getting a proper USB plug for my tablet at Officeworks, did I mention that I've been having trouble with that? I can't remember LOL, but I was and now I've got one with enough amps.

The tablet is going well since I installed Windows 10 on it, except the display is so small...I tried making it bigger, but then it get blurry...I guess that's just how it goes. Although it does make me wonder if I can actually change between my regular laptop and it without killing my eyeballs.

This is a very uninteresting entry, although I do have one piece of news, my co-worker has asked me over for dinner tomorrow night, it's going to be a Peruvian dish and I'm very intrigued. I hope it won't be too spicy though!

So, I gotta wrap this up because sleep is needed.

Goodnight all!

11:15pm: I seem to have lost my activity tracker...again! I know I had it this morning, but when I looked up it's location in the app it says it's in the city! More than that it says it was there four days ago, I haven't been to the city in months.

It was definitely with me this morning, ah damn where could it be? In the car? At the library? At the Save the Children charity shop I went to after I finished volunteering? Or is it in the house somewhere? I hope it's the latter but I've got a terrible feeling I might have lost it somewhere else... Ugh! Why do I fail at keeping my possessions with me? This is a serious problem.

Moving along, not much to report, although volunteering went well! I had to do some admin tasks for the Home Library Service and as I finished up the Home Library Service Co-ordinator had good news for me, one of the patrons really liked the items I selected for them. I'm always concerned about this so it's great news! I don't actually know who it is, but I shall find out next week. Cool.

In other news, I'm not sure what's going down with the fan fic, something showed up that seems to cement the timeline of Yuri on Ice and it puts it two whole years later than I thought! This kinda messed shit up, but I think I've fixed it. Then there's a whole thing about maybe I've got too much shit going on at once in one particular chapter, so I'm thinking of changing it, but I dunno...

Anyway, I better wrap this up I still need to do my Russian!

On the plus side I did get a pair of pinstripe pants at the Save the Children charity shop, which actually seem to fit. I hope!

And now I bid you all, goodnight!

anonymoose_au: (Hey! Bitches)
11:42pm: So in the daylight this morning the car didn't look nearly as bad as I feared, although the scratches are still most unfortunate. My poor poor car. I did actually try to use my auto paint to cover them, but I dunno how well that'll work, however, I'm in no position to spend any money fixing it, especially with the letter I got today.

Yes, when I got home from Mrs S's and the Warriewood Square and saw the envelope in the mailbox my spirits lifted! Until I picked it up and felt how light it was and then saaw it was from the Office of State Revenue.

They didn't overturn my speeding ticket! What a bag of dicks, I have sped one other time during my whole driving life (and there were no cops or cameras around soo they don't know that), it was 7 minutes before the school zone time ended and the fact that $180 is a financial burden on me (more than a shift's worth) fell on deaf ears. What a fuck-up.

Obviously, I'll have to pay it since I'm certainly not going to court to argue about it - it'd cost me even more money and time.

So yes,not the best of luck there.

However! Because my place wasn't very tidy and Mum had to go shopping for some stuff, as well as it being unseasonably warm today instead of coming over to the Granny Flat, we went to Warriewood Square where I finally found a pair of shorts suitable for work (it only took going to just about every clothing shop in the place!) and got my medication - which I hadn't been able to purchase before because my low-income card has expired so now I have to pay the full subsidised price, which is $26.

Note to self I owe Mum $150 all up now...but hey! The shorts were only $12, nice.

Right, better wrap this up and hit the hay, I've got a library shift and volunteering tomorrow so I need my zzzs!

Goodnight all!

PS Oh I almost forgot, I had the weirdest dream last night - I was on a cruise ship with my two brothers, my parents and another person I didn't know. Although shit got rather weird when Dad seemed to be drunk or something yelling at people and my brothers, the mystery person and I couldn't find our muster point during the drill.

11:38pm: I'm not sure I mentioned this in previous entries, maybe I did? But since last Friday my right thumb has been sore. Like whenever I bend it there's this sharp pain. I have no idea what I could have done to it...I can only assume some sort of sprain? Or tendonitis or something? I'm sure it can't be arthritis, although my father does have it in his thumbs...

So yeah, it's been going on since then and I'm starting to wonder if I should see a doctor about it...but I'm not sure if that would actually be beneficial, I mean what are they going to do? Perhaps I should try putting that anti-inflammatory gel I have, or put an ice pack on it or something? I guess if it's still sore by the end of the week I'll get it checked out.

In other news, still no bank card! I called my bank and discovered that despite what the person I spoke to last week said the card was sent to my old address in Newtown, well fuck. Sadly it was too late to try and get it from there, so a new card is being sent out. With any luck it'll take less time than the three to five business days estimate, or at the very least it gets here by Friday!

Anyway, I have to go, because I'm doing an extra day for Mrs S tomorrow so I need to keep up on my zzzs, although I have quite the problem, there's a hole in my work shorts! Shiiit, I'm gonna have to wear my other pair, although those are my good shorts. :O( Guess it can't be helped.

And on that note I shall be off!

11:47pm: I refer to the Spit Bridge, which opens a few times per day to let boats go through from one part of the harbour to the other. Thing is, I'd forgot what time it opens and it turned out that 11:15am was one of them, which meant...I got stuck waiting as I tried to get to the pyschiatrist's office for the 11:30 appointment.

Suffice to say I was late, booo, which kind of put an end to thoughts of catching the last of the lunchtime ice skating session.

Speaking of ice skating, I got a reply from the cruise line, who told me they did not recommend taking my own skates on board because blades longer that four inches are not allowed on board. I mentioned this to my pyschiatrist, who encouraged me to write back mentioning how even though there's complimentary hire skates available, if you've got your own pair its much easier to use them and the email didn't straight out say it was forbidden only not recommended. He spoke about the need for assertiveness, and I have to admit I am rather a push-over, which makes me wonder...maybe that's why I'm not getting jobs, I'm not expressing enough confidence.

Speaking of jobs though...I got an unexpected phone call today, they're doing interviews for the Inter-Library Loan Officer's position and I have an interview next Tuesday! How exciting! Fingers and toes crossed everyone!

I also had to make an unexpected trip to the doctor because my referral for the psychiatrist had ended, and without one I don't get any money back from Medicare, that was a bit of a pain but I did make some purchases including a purple shirt! It's pretty much the same colour as the one I made! It has weird sleeve though, I'm not entirely sure how to work them out to be honest...hope I can though. Although I did tell myself I'd make my own purple shirt... I wasn't going to buy it, but I needed to spend an extra two bucks to use eftpos at Lifeline and I'd found some pinstriped pants that were $6 and this milk jug in the shape of chicken for $2.

However, I kind of made a mistake with the pinstripe pants...they're size 16! For some reason I thought they were size 8s and perhaps the reason they were in a second hand shop was because they were mislabled. But nope, so suffice to say they're a bit too big. Whoops. Ah well, I guess I could just give them away, it's only 2 bucks loss.

Right, better haul butt now, it's almost midnight and this Moose needs sleep!

10:50pm: In these episodes of Air Crash Investigation that I'm watching! They must have gone to a later timeslot or something in Season 2 because the episodes in Season 1 bleeped out the swears, but now they're dropping 'f' bombs left and right, which when you think about it makes sense, because God knows if I was in such a situation I'd be swearing my head off. (Although, it should be noted that when they release transcripts of cockpit voice recorders they usually bleep out the swears anyway, so I'm not sure how Air Crash Investigation knows they were actually dropping the 'f-bomb'.)

Moving on...for some reason, it seems to be hotter in my room here then it was yesterday despite the fact it's supposed to be cooler tonight...Although cooler is sort of relative, it's was like 27 degrees today instead of 30 degrees...or maybe that's because I didn't put the boost function on, I was hoping I wouldn't have to, but it seems to be the only way to cool this place down, otherwise I'm sweating.

In other news, I'm a bit disappointed in myself, I somehow managed to sleep through my alarm this morning and didn't wake up until 9:30! This was good in terms of catching up on my zzzs, but totally ruined my plans to go ice skating today. Not only did I want to do that since I'm planning on hanging out with friends on Saturday afternoon I also wrote it down as a 'do-to' in my Cognitive Behaviour book, I hope this wasn't some sort of subconscious over sleeping to avoid going, I was feeling a bit nervous about doing so yesterday.

What else to report - well Plushenko the fish is hanging on, although he's spending a lot of time on the bottom of his tank so I'm a bit worried about that. It occurred to me that maybe the sponge for the filter in his tank needs to be changed. I forgot to find out how often it's supposed to be changed, better check that out. Although as I typed this Plushenko swam to the top of the tank to get some air so fingers crossed I think he's getting better. His fins certainly look fuller, although I'm not sure if his tail will ever come back.

So I've left writing this entry a bit late, but I must give a shout-out to Dad who bought me an absolutely awesome t-shirt while he was in Parramatta today (he has to take his car to the dealership he bought it at while it's under warranty)...he also bought a matching one for himself, we plan to wear them tomorrow to dinner which will no doubt make my mother go "Oh nooo"

Right, I have to finish off my Russian before I hit the sheets so I'll wrap this up now.

It's supposed to be really hot again tomorrow...pray for my air-con!

Oh and lastly, many thanks to [personal profile] crossover_chick for my birthday fic!

11:08pm: Well, actually they landed more than 12 hours ago, but I feel like that's a good title.

Anyway! The big party was today, very exciting! I got there on time, which I was rather surprised by because I kind of left it a bit late to go, but I guess that's the Sunday morning traffic for you.

Anyway, I had my pretty dress, the white cardigan and my new shoes on and with my hair all nice from yesterday I was feeling pretty good. I think I was a bit overdressed compared to everyone else, but hey, if you've got it flaunt it, or something, LOL.

As to be expected, the big bro, his wife, Eri and Emma didn't arrive until much later in the party since they didn't even get their luggage or through customs for like an hour or something. Fortunately, the traffic wasn't too bad although it did seem to take quite a while. The rest of us had all ready finished our brunch by the time they arrived.

But for a while it looked like they might not come at all since it was a long flight, and none of them got any sleepy apparently. Mike actually SMSed Mum to tell her that, but she managed to talk him into it. And also luckily, Emma despite the lack of zzzs was super well behaved. She's pretty cute and quite chubby as babies tend to be, but everyone was pleased to see her, especially M and Dad's sisters (the great aunts) and Mum of course. :OP It was also very lucky they showed up because Mum had hired a photographer to get some professional shots of the momentous occasion. So there was a big family/friends photo on the steps outside the room where the party was held (despite the less than nice weather, seriously it was pretty shitty today and chilly!) As well as some with immediate family inside with a proper screen and reflecting thing so with any luck we'll all look like models. :OP

So yes, the little bro was the one who picked the big bro, Eri and Emma up, which was really good of him since he kind of forgot he was supposed to do it and only remembered while sitting up late watching a soccer game! So he only got five hours sleep! Then he kind of forgot the party was on today, so he wore thongs - which aren't allowed in the Golf House, luckily he and the big bro are the same shoe size so he borrowed a pair of his otherwise he might not have been allowed in!

So yes, a good time was had by all, although Mum had me do quite a bit of reloading of the car at the end by which point the new shoes were making my feet hurt and all that hard work has made me most sleepy! I should have taken a nap in between getting back to the parental units and having dinner there.

The dinner was most enjoyable especially because my favourite aunt and uncle came by - they're from Canberra and were spending the night at the Retirement Village (I guess some owners go away during Christmas and rent their places out) and although Mike, Eri and Emma were catching up on their sleep and whatnot in the second room we all enjoyed ourselves.

Right, so like I said I'm most tired and need to get myself to bed since work calls tomorrow.

I tried to upload a photo of my outfit, but Photobucket is being a butt so we'll have to wait on that.

In closing, goodnight all!

11:54pm: Indeed it is, especially since I once again misjudged when I should have gone to sleep last night and thus only got about seven hours worth!

On the plus side it's one of my days off tomorrow so I should be able to catch up tonight. Although I'm here at the parental units' place (the little bro did indeed come over for dinner which was good and yummy!) and I can never be sure when Mum and Dad might wake me up. :OP Although...

Not much else to report, except I'm still having weird pains in the abdominal area, like little cramps or something. Very rude.

I did discover something though! Just Jeans does still have 3/4 length pants they just happened to be folded up on a stand with other full-length jeans rather than hanging up as they were before. They're also slightly different with two buttons rather than one. They were having a two for $109 sale so I decided to get a pair in white as well as regular dark jeans. Niice.

So ahem, better be off now, sorry for the lack of entry.

10:25pm: Not one I've been undertaking, no I'm talking about this episode of MacGyver where his company's idea of stress relief is going on a day long hike complete with crossing a disturbingly flimsy looking bridge. Worst idea ever, although what MacGyver's doing up there when he's supposedly afraid of heights, however the fact he climbs mountains and such seems to refute that. But then again that's MacGyver for you, LOL.

So, today I went over to M and Grandpa's after work for Canasta, unfortunately for me I hadn't realised that M was expecting me to call and confirm that I was coming. Because I hadn't she'd gone swimming in the morning and was heading off to have her rest when I arrived. Whoops!

Then there was lunch, which was very delicious, but took quite a while because that's M and Grandpa's main meal of the day, so by the time M and I got around to starting the game (that was another thing I managed to forget to bring the score of the previous game we hadn't finished) it was 3pm! Suffice to say we didn't finish this game either, so now there's two unfinished games to complete and I'm losing in both of them! Hopefully, I can make an amazing comeback in at least one.

Also, my baggy pants situation is getting quite silly now, so I decided to pop by the Narrabeen Vinnies to see if I could find a second hand pair that would fit better. I thought I'd managed to score a good deal, but sadly they've proved to be too small - they were sort of stretchy so I thought I'd get by. But no dice...damn that's twelve bucks I won't get back....Grandpa did suggest seeing if I could get an exchange of sorts, apparently they let him do it once, but he is an older gentleman so the Vinnies people probably figured he was legit.

In other news, Nedshenko is still with us...fingers crossed! Hopefully, this will continue.

Anyway, I better move quick with some Memes before I head off )

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!

10:42pm: Yes! Today was finally the day, the new part of Warriewood Square opened and with it the new Aldi! It's a very upmarket looking one too! Usually Aldi is rather warehouse looking inside, but this one has nice accents on the walls with various sections of the shop clearly marked. I wonder if Mum and Dad will go there this weekend and be all sorts of impressed by it, especially Dad, LOL.

Anyway! I woke up, or rather was woken up in time to make it back home to take a shower, eat breakfast and change into my proper work clothes before heading off to Mrs S, so that was good!

And I was most relieved that I felt a lot better today! I briefly considered moving my library volunteer day to tomorrow, but I wanted to pick up the two books I put on hold that had come in and also pick up the red shirt I had embroided, so I went. It all went quite well. We're really keeping on top of the home library selections, but that's not surprising now that there's two people working on it full-time.

Gasp! Sorry I just got distracted by a bathroom with carpet in it. Ewww, I know you can get water resistant carpet or whatever you call it, but still who does that? Uncool :OP

So, I completed everything I wanted to do today! Which is always a relief. I even got around to making my lasagna and this time I didn't burn the cheese on top, whoo!

Anyway, not much else to report beyond that and I need to start getting to be earlier so I can get my 8 hours of zzzzs which means I need to be asleep by 11:30 and I have to brush my teeth and put the various stuff on my right foot.

Oh, I almost forgot one thing...I wore my purple shirt today but it proved a bit unfortunate because as I later discovered I put the buttons on wrong and three of them fell off while I was at the library! Good thing I was wearing my cardigan at the time, that could have sucked.

And...LOL...after all that I just discovered that the floor of that bathroom wasn't carpet after all, but there are ones out there!

9:58pm: Now I've got some athlete's foot between my third and fourth toe - it's nasty! In fact it's even started to bleed a bit O.o Unfortunately I didn't notice it until just now so no chance of getting any anti-fugual cream for it and the internet tells me I can't use my nail treatment on it or any of the creams I have. Boooo!

On the upside...the wart is shrinking right down now and should be cured soon, whoo! And the nail continues to clear up. Nice.

Moving along, I was going to wash my sheets today because the weather really cleared up during the morning, but I think the land lady must have been home sick because while her car was in the driveway there was no answer when I knocked on the door. However, considering how windy it's become out there now, it was probably for the best. Although Mrs S pointed out today that my grey cardigan is dirty, I forgot to wash it with my other stuff, so it would have been nice if I could have washed that.

What else to report? Not much, I checked my GPS this morning and it said it would take 33 minutes to get from Mrs S's place to the ice rink, which probably rules out going for the lunch time session. Damn shame that, but what can you do? Although on Wednesday I have to start earlier because Mrs S needs to get somewhere at 10am, so I could go then...however, that is the day I help Mum at the school and the whole needing to get somewhere after skating is a bit stressful for me - although I will have an hour and a half to get to the school if I do so. Which is more time then I'd have going on Sunday mornings. Bah, making decisions is hard! :OP

Anyway, aside from that don't have much else to say so I'll continue catching up on those Memes:

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!

11:10pm: Yes! I'm happy to report I finally got to the ice rink today! Hooray! Man, it's been a while hasn't it. I'm pleased to report though I'm still able to skate! Although I'm somewhat disappointed by the leggings I bought...I was pretty cold for most of the time, although that could be because it's actually winter now?

Also my gloves have holes in them now, better replace them too. Perhaps I'll take this opportunity to use my super-soft gray gloves and beanie, I haven't really needed my scarves and gloves since I have a car now, so they could all use an outing.

So yes, I had fun skating even though my lower limb is tender, I sort of twisted it yesterday when I was walking and I didn't think I'd done anything to it, but alas it's been sore today so I guess I must have, grumble grumble. Better be careful when I go to the gym tomorrow.

I also got a new beige brassier on sale from Myer while I was at Macquarie, and new green underwear from Target, I was also supremely tempted by a pair of flannel pjs with sausage dogs on them, but I probably have too many PJs by now and they were also $20 (although the tag said $25 but either way). I could buy them with my Flybuys dollars though, buuuut. They really are cute though, I shall took a pic, I'll put it up next entry because I have to get a move on to bed.

Speaking of cute things...guess what showed up on Pinterest? A pattern for sitting up Pusheen! Not gonna lie I'm a slightly annoyed because I bet it'll make a Pusheen that's more accurate then the one I made so now I'm debating as to whether I should make another. I'll be invaded by Pusheens if this keeps happening, LOL!

Finally...in less pleasant news, my email account is being spoofed again! All these "Bounced back" messages are cluttering my Yahoo email inbox. But what's also a worry is some of the messages have gone to contacts in my address book. But none of the emails show up in the my "Sent" folder so it's like they got the contacts but aren't in the account. What does this all mean? I've asked Google, but the answers so far haven't been all that helpful. Except to change my password, which I've done like five times now. O.o I've been making the new ones progressively harder so how do they find it? And they're not changing it since I can still log in so what gives?

Perhaps I should give up the Yahoo account...Although it's got a lot of memories in it, but all these emails ...well the only person who seems to have got them is Grandpa, it's still totally uncool.

Hmpf, well on that note and considering the time, I must be off.

For now, goodnight!

11:14pm: Fortunately this is not due to illness (knock on wood), but on the fact that I while drinking some water I sort of hiccuped and as a result inhaled half a gulp o water down the wrong pipe. It's settled down thankfully because I thought I was going to choke for a minute there! A bit scary when one lives alone.

Moving on, the rain has indeed set in for the weekend, somehow I managed to get everything hanging up in my flat, even the sheets so at least I don't have to be concerned about that. However, I am rather concerned about what this will mean for my ice skating. I always get a bit worried about driving in the rain, with any luck though perhaps it'll be calmer.

In other news I got an email today from the IT person at the library, apparently on Sunday the wi-fi network will be down! Fortunately it looks like there'll be an off-line library management system available so we won't have to do everything by hand, but considering how many people come for the computers it's going to be weird day.

I was also disappointed when I went to the Mona Vale Aldi to find the sausage dog shaped draft stoppers were sold out there too. Dang, they were the cutest little things, should have known they'd sell out quick. :O( Having said that there doesn't seem to be a draft in here, especially after Mum removed the outlet hose for the air-conditioner from the window in the bedroom. Which I really should have done myself, fail me.

However! I did have the great luck to purchase a very nice striped green business like shirt at Salvos, yay! I washed it so hopefully it'll be ready to wear on Sunday. As for Project Purple shirt, I re-sewed the collar on because it wasn't sitting right, which was really quite a pain in the butt. I also finished up the sleeves. The only thing that's left is those damn button holes...I've tried everything but I just can't get the sewing machine to do the automatic buttonhole making. Boooo. I think I might be able to manually make the outlines of the buttonholes using the machine, which hopefully won't end up biting me in the ass.

And I can only hope that it's still not too short after redoing the hem...

Anyway, time flies when you're sewing so I shall forego the memes for tonight and instead get ready to hit the hay. Zzzzs are needed! :OP

And now I say goodnight!

Purple Shirt

anonymoose_au: (Hey! Bitches)
9:55pm: After the success of Project Pusheen, I've decided to finally get off my butt and make a start on my purple shirt. I bought the material late last year after having no luck in finding business shirts in purple (seriously! I have no idea where such shirts can be found) and having the very good luck of finding a second hand pattern at Salvos which had been cut in my size.

It's come out quite well so far, although the collar is proving very fiddly and I didn't really follow the instructions for it...which is probably why. Although, I'm not sure if the interfacing was necessary...apparently there's also suppose to be interfacing on the front couple of panels, which is weird because none of my other shirts are like that. I have it put it in, primarily because I don't have enough interfacing at present, but if I did...it'd make the shirt very stiff. Hopefully I can do without it.

In other news, this is a late-breaking realisation, but it occurred to me today that it takes a couple of weeks for the flu shot to kick in. Damn man, I totally should have got it earlier! Although it has only just turned cold, but there were a lot of coughing people in the library today and one of my co-workers has lost her voice! Although none of these are probably flu related. Although my father swears the flu shot has helped him avoid the cold too.

Also unrelated, but I'm watching my house shows at the moment, and this "PERgola" pronounciation is annoying me :OP It's right up there with "VIT-amin", don't make me change channels here. :OP Also I have a terrible feeling they're gonna paint over the green the house currently is. Because everyone knows green is the best.

Moving on, I better do some Memes and run because I've decided to do the skating thing on Sunday mornings because I can go in the last hour and thus save $6. It might not sound like much, but as I was thinking today I go skating every week that really adds up!

Memes! )

Right, I better be off, but good news those people decided to keep the house painted green! Whoo, you go, girls!

And I wish I'd turned the TV off after that because I just had to listen to crap about Bachelorette US, ugh who watches that trash? Evidently a lot of people.

And now, I'm off!

Goodnight!

8:53pm: Yes indeed, I went and got my skates sharpened after work today, but it took so long that I decided to forego actual skating because had I done so I would have been driving home in the dark and as I said I don't like driving in the dark, particularly considering how bush-like the road home is.

Also I was rather sleepy as well, yawn.

However! I do plan to go tomorrow morning before work, which actually had been my plan previously, however I kept on staying up too late! I have to get to the ice rink a little before 10am, which means I have to leave the flat here at 9am and thus get up at about 8:30. But when you stay up until 1:30am that's not the best idea. So yes! I'm updating earlier than usual so I can get to bed on time.

In other news, I also need to buy a new SD card for my phone, I bit the bullet and after swapping things around to get my photos off the one I have so I could format it for internal storage I got a message saying it's a slow one, also according to the specifications I can use up to 32 Gb! Not sure if I can afford it, but 16Gb would be twice as much as I've got now.

Moving on! I'm wearing my new Garfield pjs! I feel fancy :O) or at least like a real fangirl, it's nice to see Garfield is still popular.

And I'm just kind of rambling here, I thought I might have had something else to write about from yesterday...oh wait! I do! I mentioned a while back that I was going on a cruise with my parental units in December on a cruise ship with an ice rink on board! However, it looks as if my sister-in-law and new niece will be arriving in Australia at that time, so obviously Mum and Dad want to be there to hang out with the new grandchild. So instead we're going next February, which will be Dad's birthday, so that's cool.

Although...they wanted me to see if I could get a friend to come along, however, considering the sale ends tonight the notice was a bit too short...Oh well, I guess we'll all have to share a cabin after all. :OP

Now, Memes! The Friday5 won't work for some reason, hope they fix it!

But there's others! )

Phew! That took a lot of time, but I'll be off now to get ready for bed and enjoy the rest of this show.

Goodnight all!

11:27pm: To Mrs S who's off on her two month holiday tomorrow and thus begins my time of monetary shortage unless the libraries decide to help me out.

On the upside I spoke to the Financial officer at my gym and she managed to cut down my waiting period to stop payment from the ten weeks (seriously, what's with that?) to just four, after I explained my financial issues. So thank goodness for that!

In other news, I got wildly excited just before going to bed last night when I was just randomly looking through properties on the Domain app and saw an apartment with a parking spot a few suburbs away that was listed at only $356,000 to $370,000 a bargain in these parts! And obviously much more affordable then the other place. Alas when I called up to ask about it, I discovered that it's just about to be bought by someone for $360,000 and the owners only put it up to see f they could get a better offer. Which seems rather shitty, I mean imagine getting undercut at the last minute! That'd be some bullshit...

Anyway, it's all kind of moot anyway, because with my current income I can only afford to get at $200,000 loan, which will buy me something...on the Central Coast. Evidently more saving will need to be done so I can put down a better deposit. Or wait for this influx of apartments to bring the market down. :OP

Anyway, I've managed to get myself distracted and hence I've got to make this quick, I got caught up reading Cracked articles. Incidentally, they've changed the website for no apparent reason and now you can't read the comments anymore! Bloody rude.

What else to report, well tomorrow is going to be a busy day, I'm not sure if the Pittwater Council BBQ will still be happening, I'll have to ring about that. And it's going to be difficult to get to the Dee Why Volunteer afternoon tea and get to the school to help my mother with the SRE.

Right...I better head off now...I want to keep getting up at the same time even while Mrs S is away because I don't want to end up creating bad habits.

Before I do though! Here's a photo of the adorable PJs I bought at K-Mart today...to recycle an old pun...they're a hoot!

So, as I continue to fall behind on the Memes I bid you all adieu!

Goodnight all!

11:02pm: After 11 pm! Crap, I gotta get my ass to bed and I was going to do a post that was well-thought-out and whatnot, but instead I'm just gonna have to rush here.

First up! After three goes I finally made the kangaroo for my niece Emma, here it is! I think it's pretty cute if I do say so myself. I'm not sure how sturdy it is though...maybe my brother can just put it on a shelf or something.

In other news, the nice people at the shop exchanged my pants for me, quite a relief! Apparently, they will stretch, but it will take quite some time and I'm not the sort of person who can grin through the pain. :OP

I also spent my Target exchange voucher on some half-priced Easter chocolates, whoo, yum! So that's all taken care of.

Finally, tomorrow is the last day for work with Mrs S for two months, gulp! I really do need extra work, but I'm not the sort of person who can get a quick job i.e waitressing or something. Chances are then, if I did get lucky the job itself probably wouldn't even start until Mrs S gets back. Oh well, at least I've got those info booth shifts.

And in closing, the weather's gone all humid again, I'm wearing my kaftan! Looks like I'll be wearing shorts tomorrow, I almost overheated today.

Now, I must flee!

11:28pm: Yes indeed! The cards and blueberry muffins were very well received and lunch was most yummy! The only downside was my friend didn't end up coming, but I'll be seeing her tomorrow, with the muffins that are left over and some Cheezels.

One thing that's not good, the pants I bought! The sales lady assured me when I bought them that they would stretch so I needed to buy a size smaller than usual, but that turned out to be a very bad move because they didn't and about three hours after putting them on, I was so uncomfortable that after church I took them off in the car so I could put on my work pants instead!

So...I hope I can return them, I had a bit of a worry when I got home and couldn't find the bag or receipt...the bag was obviously thrown out at some point and the receipt was in my recycling bin. But of course I cut the tags off so I could wear them, so they're not exactly in the same condition as I bought them. Still, I feel like I should get a refund because I only bought them in that size on the advice of the sales lady. It's not my fault she gave shitty advice.

The only question is...should I try and return them ASAP, that is tomorrow morning before I go to my friends, or should I wait? The Mall isn't really on my way unless I'm going to Dee Why Library or the gym so I probably should just wait until I'm doing that. Although...the receipt does say something about returns needing to be in 14 days. I should check when I bought them.

And now its rather late and of course, I managed not to get quite enough sleep because Mrs S called me a bit early because she and her husband woke up early and she remembered how I wanted to come earlier to get to the lunch. As it turned out I ended up getting there at 8:55am instead of 9am, pft.

But yes, I'm tired, so I'm off now.

Goodnight all!
