10:38pm: The Secret Life of Pets that is! They were showing it on the cruise actually, but I kept missing the start or the end and on the day it was shown on the big screen on board it was Dad's birthday and thus I didn't get chance to watch it then.

And when I got back home all the copies at the Warringah Library were out so I figured I wouldn't get it for a while, but a copy came to Mona Vale Library so yay!

But yes, I wanted to see it mostly for the sausage dog, LOL I love those little dogs, they're so funny looking.

Although there sure turned out to be a lot of property damage in this film!

And now...the end of the trip... )

So that's it! Suffice to say when they emailed me the link for the survey I gave them a glowing review! And perhaps someday when I have enough hours of work a week I can save up for another cruise! And this time I'll keep a journal of events as they unfold.

But! For now, I must be off, I've got a shift at the library tomorrow so I can't stay up super late! Plus I need to finish my cleaning I've made quite a dent in it but more needs to be done. So wish me luck with that!

For now...goodnight!

9:52pm: Actually, I don't know if that's true, but it feel like it should be, I mean...red in the bathroom? Just sounds wrong. Although there was another bathroom in the house in question that had green wallpaper, I was on board with that! :OP

Just to clarify, I'm watching my house shows, I'm not actually looking at houses myself - although I'm reminded that I think they might have finished the display suite of the apartment building I've bought off the plan, I should find out for sure and then the parental units and I can go visit it!

Also, is a weird that the dude in this current house show wants elements of the Pacific Northwest in the house when he and his fiance are in fact on the east coast, wrong side of the country, my good sir.

Moving on, the get together looks to be going ahead tomorrow evening/night, yay! The only problem is my friend hasn't replied to me about whether he's going to the party at 4pm - which means I'll have to take public transport there because I finish work at 5pm - or later. I wonder if he's not getting my messages over Facebook, I'd assume so though. I guess he's thinking about and will get back to me.

But, for now let's return to the past...to...

The Last Full Day and Night of the Cruise )

Right! There is of course the last morning, but...it's getting late and since I'll be having a quite a big day tomorrow so I better wrap this up. Not sure if I'll be able to update tomorrow, but if I don't, I'll tell the last part of the cruise.

For now, goodnight!

11:06pm: Not my epic recounting of the cruise (I'm afraid with the late start to this entry there'll still be a few more days to go with that!), but the fiction book about Russia I've been reading since - I kid you not - mid-November last year! It had 1006 pages in it! Plus as the distractable person that I am, I felt the need to read other books around it, so it all added up there. Anyway, it was a pretty good read!

But without further ado...Dad's Birthday Dinner! )

And that's how Dad's birthday went! And now, midnight is closing in so I shall wrap this up here. I hope you're enjoying the cruise journal as much I am in reliving it. :O)

Goodnight!

10:59pm: Obsessive Compulsive Cleaners, which is a very odd show where one obsessive cleaner goes to a the house of a super messy person's place and teaches them how to clean - which is apparently supposed to help them not be so obsessive in their own cleaning. I'm not actually sure that's an approved method...I guess as long as they don't end up making other people obsessive, because the guy that's on right now takes four hours to wash his dishes!

Anyway, time is getting on so I better get a move on! First up, I finally go the Chou Chou Train video in a sharable format. Man, that was quite the drama...no idea why it wasn't working yesterday, I did end up having to turn off and turn on my laptop so maybe that was the issue. Anyway there you go 7 seconds, LOL.

Happy Birthday to Dad! )

Right, I think I'll have to leave Dad's Birthday Dinner to tomorrow! It's almost midnight and I've work in the morning. It was quite an evening so I want to give it the attention it deserves.

10:22pm: Yes, I finally realised how to rotate a video on my phone...with the edit button! Duh! No idea how I missed that, a bit embarrassing to be honest. I've been wanting to put this video on my Cruise Album on Google Pics, I think I mentioned it before? I couldn't find that edit option on my phone before, so I uploaded it because when I searched how to rotate videos it told me you could do it on Google+, but when I did that I couldn't find any way to do it. But! Turned out the option was on the phone the whole time...so we'll get to the later.

But I should update about some current events since I've been slacking on that too. I'm rather excited to say that I've caught up on the Back to the Future comic books! I ordered issues 14 to 17 from Kings Comics on Friday and they arrived today, which was a good idea if I do say so myself because that way I only had to pay for one lot of postage. Of course, it does mean if I'm going to do that I'll even more behind than usual (Australia's all ready behind with comic books). The "Who is Marty McFly" arc was a good read although I got confused at some points, like I was missing something, LOL. I figured it out in the end though so perhaps I didn't miss anything after all. :OP

Aside from that, not a lot of excitement in the life of Moose - although today I started the process to join the new provider Mrs S is going through, which is good news, because she's leaving her old one at the end of this week and if I'm not signed up I can't get paid...or you know actually work. The only pain in the butt was the fact I left the paperwork I need (first aid certificate, police check etc) at home so I had to go from Mrs S's (which is just across the road from the providers) to pick them up so I ended up a bit late for said interview. But it all went pretty well in the end, so things should be good to go next Monday.

And finally, today is Ash Wednesday, I wasn't able to go to any of the morning masses, so I had to go to the evening one, unfortunately I misread the start time so I was at the church a whole half an hour early. Whoops.

Oh and today marked the first day of helping Mum with the Catholic Scripture class, which went pretty well considering how had to haul a heavy-ass box of books to the classroom.

And now...back to the Cruise! )

Phew! This turned out to be a super-long entry and I better not stay up too late tonight, so I shall say goodnight!

10:49pm: Yes indeed! And I got to have pancakes over at the parental house this evening as well as dinner! :O) Good times indeed.

In less good times, my left knee/leg hurts...why? I have no idea, I think it just wants to be an ass. Or perhaps I've become an old man and it's reacting to the weather or something, LOL (In all seriousness though, it's been all over the place...cloudy, pouring down with rain, sunny and now...back to pouring down with rain again).

Anywho, I've got to get to work a bit earlier than usual tomorrow with Mrs S so I better take us back to...

9:56pm: Yeah, the cold decided to come back with avengence yesterday - I had to call in sick to work at the library, I didn't go to church and I tried to see about calling in sick to work with Mrs S today, but it was too late, fortunately I feel better today. Although, I didn't get as much sleep as I hoped I would staying over at the parental units' house because Dad was coughing up a lung! I hope he went to see a doctor about it...

Also, I didn't realise Mum had indeed put a top sheet on the bed so I was sleeping under the doona and it was waaay to hot under there.

Anyway, let's get back to it!

To the Pines! )

Right, better haul! I have to work tomorrow (I don't usually, but the other lady can't do it, and hey extra money), so sleep is needed!

10:25pm: Yes! We're onto Day Five of the Cruise - Mystery Island Day!

If there was one thing I was looking forward to apart from the ice skating rink on the ship, it was finding out the mystery behind Mystery Island.

Which was... )

Righto, hoped you all enjoyed that :O) I need to head off since thre's work tomorrow and I've still got this cold. I was hopeful this morning when my throat didn't feel as sore as yesterday, but I ended up feeling pretty icky once I finished up with Mrs S. I had planned to go and finish my shopping at Aldi, but it was so busy I never got around to it. I did though go up to the IGA in Elanora Heights were I at least got some margarine. I sure hope I feel better tomorrow though! I need to do the cupcakes, not to mention go to work.

Ah well, fingers crossed for that! Goodnight all!

11:00pm: Well, it's a bit late - again! Where does the time go after 10pm? I swear an hour passes in like three seconds - but I've decided I better continue my tale of the cruise, otherwise I'll never finish telling you all about it!

So, let's not beat around the bush, but dive right in!

To Port! )

Right, it's getting quite late and I stayed up waaaaay too late last night, which was a really pisspoor idea because the niggling sore throat I had yesterday has become quite a bit worse and a runny nose was thrown into the bargain today. In fact it was bad enough that when I went to do my volunteering the co-ordinator decided I should head home early - I didn't even end up staying an hour! But I've done more than two-hours volunteering the last few times, so I didn't protest too much. :OP

Right, I need to head off, work calls tomorrow and I need to do a lot of washing too!

So for now goodnight!

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)

Goodnight all!

8:39pm: Wow, it's been forever, hasn't it?! My plan to update on Sunday 12th before the ship left port never eventuated! And even though I did get the wireless internet package for the last two days of the trip I was on my phone so I didn't update then either!

Anyway, there's so much to report! So many photos have been taken! I'm not sure if I need to actually upload them or what because I think they might be on my Google drive...Goes and checks...

Hey, it is! Nice. Although they don't all seem to be there, I'll give it another go, and perhaps I can link to them. Because uploading them one by one will take aaages. Although I'm trying to upload some now and they don't see to be going? That's weird how some do and some won't.

The First Three Days )

But, there's way too much to talk about in just one entry! But I have to say...in typical Moose style after being unsure about the whole cruising business I was so sad to leave the ship this morning! Sad enough that I cried on and off throughout the day - which as you all know is never a good idea for me...suffice to say I'm tired with a bit of a headache right now.

Also, I kind of hoped to stay over at my parents place - even though I don't actually have proper clothes for Mrs S tomorrow - because of course now that I'm off the ship I'm feeling kind of dizzy! - but Mum insisted I come back here to the Granny Flat. And when I did after dinner I discovered...that my fridge door had somehow being left ajar! FUUUUUCK! I knew the watermelon and lettuce I'd left were going to be pretty much gone when I got back, but without the benefit of cooling it was putrid in there. Fuuuuck. Not a fun homecoming and I don't even have cold water for my trouble! Sigh! And then I found that the fish in my freezer had defrosted as well! (Although the ice cream is still fine, so...good news there I suppose)

Anywho, I better go since despite generally getting more than enough sleep on the ship I didn't last night so I need to get to bed sooner rather than later.

Wish me luck tomorrow settling back into real life!

Goodnight all!

10:57pm: On this application for a job that I'm currently trying to complete, or not so much questions as Selection Criteria. There's just sooo many dot points to answer and the last few don't even make sense to me and I'm just half-assing it. :O( Which probably doesn't bode well for getting an interview!

Also, time is running out for me to apply, I was supposed to do so this evening - since tomorrow is going to be taken up by work and then the party...but I'm sleepy, and haven't written the cover letter yet so it'll have to wait I fear. But on the other hand I'm not sure I have enough time to do that, so perhaps instead of updating this thing I should be doing that!

...

Which I just went and did, which on the plus side means I can submit it! But on the minus side means I've totally neglected this entry and I have to get my ass to bed because work calls tomorrow and with the weather being so hot it's hard for me to think straight, so this is one crappy update. :OP

However, I was at least able to take refuge at Mum and Dad's house, I have no idea how my air-con would have gone with this weather to be honest, but in the brief time I was there between finishing my shift at the library this evening and heading over here I was sweating a lot.

Anywho, I've got to do my Russian before heading off, so I best wrap this up - I need to get a proper amount of sleep because I tossed and turned a bit last night - the cruise was on my mind! Man, I hope it all goes OK...I got my suitcase very nicely packed though! :O)

Right! I bid you all goodnight!

11:23pm: Because it seems to defeat the purpose a bit? At the moment I've been reading books from the "Adult Summer Reading Guide" which was put out by the libraries and on the front cover of it it lists the dates 1st December to 28th February. There's a competition to go with it, however I just noticed as I was filling out the card to enter that the closing date for it is tomorrow. A full 18 days before the 28th! What's up with that? Apart from anything else it means I have to rush to finish reading so I can enter, although I have to say the book I'm reading at the moment is extremely interesting so I'm getting through it at quite a good pace. However, I still have to speed read a book I've previously read so I can fill out a row on the Bingo Card! Which strikes me as somewhat dodgy, but I did read a few other books on the card so i feel like it evens out.

Anyway, I'm trying to figure out what to do with myself tomorrow afternoon - it's set to get quite hot indeed and I'm not sure if my air-con will be able to handle it! The parental abode may call again, since I have to go over there anyway after work to drop off my suitcase, which the little bro will be taking along with all the other luggage and Mum and Dad to the city on Saturday.

I'm relieved though that the time I'm meeting my friends at one of their houses before going on to yet another friend's house for the birthday get together has been moved to later on Saturday. This means I'll be able to make cupcakes after I finish work at the library before the time change it looked like it would be a very close thing indeed - or that I might not be able to do it at all.

Apart from that, not much else to report, except that I didn't end up getting my hair done because I had to do my washing a day earlier than usual since there'd be no time to do so tomorrow. I managed to get it all done though, even my sheets because the rain has disappeared once more so I was able to hang them on the line and they dried.

Oh and I also got to the library for my volunteering, always a good thing, plus there was some cupcakes there because the refurbished work on the upstairs study area had been finished and so was re-opening. Yum!

After that I went hunting one last time for a swimming costume, but, I guess it ain't gonna happen. I think the black and white flowered one will be OK.

Right, it's getting late, so I better get a move on, sleep is important after all.

Goodnight all!

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

11:43pm: Yes indeed! And did my first work out there, it's quite a nice place. Although they don't have an upper-body ergometre, which is a shame, but they have everything else I use. I decided to go with the 12 month $12.95 a week option because I have no idea what might happen job-wise so being confined to go between 9am and 3pm, or 12pm to 3pm (when Mrs S comes back) seemed it might be more trouble than it's worth. :OP

The only thing that disturbed me was I noticed the owner had her kid with her, who was apparently unwell because she was lying on a bean bag with a box of tissues and as I realised later a bucket. Fortunately, I didn't panic, although I was somewhat preturbed, but considering I didn't go anywhere near her I'll be fine. Still poor kid! I can't imagine what it would have been like if my mother had taken me into work when I was sick. I guess if you own your own business though, taking a day off is kind of impossible.

Moving on from that, I haven't done much else, although I did get a call from Mum today, apparently my little bro isn't sure he'll be able to get time off work - since he has to take mandatory time-off during Christmas - to go on the cruise. And apparently my father gets on better with my old landlady then he does with Mum's friend (I thought he disliked them both equally! :OP) so the former may end up coming with us and I'll have to share a cabin with her. Ugh, I certainly hope that won't happen, she's a chatterbox and I ain't in the mood for that. I guess I'll have to keep my fingers crossed.

Hmmm, well I did do my Russian earlier in the day so I don't need to worry about that, but I'll still have to make this entry short because it's almost midnight and like I said I don't want to end up having bad sleep habits.

And now, I say goodnight!
