11:22pm: But that's not my fault, I had an update all ready to go last night actually, but when I went to submit it, the internet decided to have a fit and not be connected so it didn't post! Then when I went back the update page nothing had been saved like it usually is and by that point it was nearly midnight and I didn't have enough time.

No need to despair though you didn't miss much, unless you think my tale of driving on a nearly empty fuel tank exciting. :OP It did get super low though! Of course, today as expected petrol prices had fallen, grumble grumble. so rude! Sometimes I feel like I should advertise when I get petrol because I can guarantee the very next day it'll be cheaper.

Anyway, moving on, not much excitement this week, in fact less exciting than usual because alas the time difference between here and Italy - where the last Junior Grand Prix event is been held means I haven't been able to watch any of it yet. Which is a huge shame because one of Plushy's students is there! I found out today that Plushy himself isn't there because he's with another student, but the skater in question, a young man, did totally awesome in the short program and is currently in the first! Apparently, he was thinking of quitting at the end of last season because he wasn't skating well and having problems with his jumps, but I certainly didn't see any evidence of that. How cool for Plushy and his team, you go, man!

So yeah, you know you've got an unexciting life when you have to write about someone else's LOL.

Oh, well, I did decided to make use of my fitness app to see how my eating habits are, since I've been gaining weight recently, unsurprisingly I've been eating too much, do'h! Not a lot, but enough so adds up. Guess I have a choc chip cookie eating problem, LOL. Hopefully I can figure out some healthier snack options, because I do get hungry.

Anywaaay, I better wrap this up because time is moving on and I do feel a bit sleepy, need to get the zzzs!

Hopefully I'll have something more exciting to report this weekend LOL.

But wait I almost forgot! This evening had some excitement so to speak - I was meant to meet Mum and Dad for dinner at the Golf Club for their cheap Friday eats. I ended up going to the parental house first to help Mum with purchasing something from E-bay where I found out poor Dad had gone to the Eye Hospital in the city because he was having vision issues! D:

Mum and I ended up going to the club - although it turned out it wasn't cheap fish and chip night, but we shared a regular priced one, LOL - during this time Mum called Dad and found out that his retinas are OK, although apparently he has to keep an eye (no pun intended!) on any further symptoms. He had to leave his car near the Mall and catch the bus into the city, so I drove Mum over to the car and Dad got the bus back so she could drive him back.

I meanwhile headed home, and who should pull up next to me, but my little bro going...somewhere. LOL this is like the first time I've ever randomly gone past him - and at first I didn't recognise him and thought some weirdo was waving at me from his car. But nope! Pretty neat, I must remember to mention that to the parental units.

Goodnight all!

Social Day!

Oct. 8th, 2017 11:15 pm

11:01pm: Yes indeed! Not only was this morning the get together for my uncle's birthday (usually it would be for my aunt too as her birthday is actually today, but she's sick so couldn't come), but since I took the day off work I went to my friend's house in the afternoon.

The family get-together was great! I made mini-blueberry muffins and we had breakfast with sausages, toast, eggs and tomatoes (although I didn't eat those :OP) and a good time was had by all.

It was also great seeing my friend again, since I've been slacking on contacting her so it's been like a few months since I've seen her last, despite the fact she lives like only ten minutes away, shame on me! Hopefully, we'll be able to see each other a bit more often, although since I work on the weekends and like to go skating on Saturday afternoons and I've been getting those extra shifts it's harder than you'd think to find a good time.

The only downside of today is hayfever is attacking me like whoa right now...at least I hope it's hayfever, it better not be another cold (knock on wood!) Mrs S will never let me live it down if it is, plus I don't need that shit.

But I think it is, because it all started yesterday when I used the fan rather than the air-conditioner in my car, I think the fan takes in air from outside rather than air that's all ready in the car and I got a face full of pollen because my nose was itchy and runny. Then today it's all stuffy, and my ears are itchy. I've been meaning to use my nose spray, but I can't find it! I'm hesitant to take an actual hayfever tablet because whilst they do work my eyeballs end up so dry I end up with a terrible headache. I may have to give in a take one so I can get some sleep, perhaps it won't be so bothersome if my eyeballs are closed.

Speaking of bed, I have to hit the hay right now because I haven't been getting enough sleep the last few days what with the ice skating and it doesn't take much for a lack of sleep to get to me. :OP Also, it's that time o' the month, grumble grumble.


So on that note I'll be off! But all in all it was a great day, I even got to see the little bro, it's been a while and I was really happy to hear he's given up smoking, yay!

And now I'm off.

Goodnight all!

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Right, now I really have to go.

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

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

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


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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

11:43pm: OK, that's probably quite the exaggeration, but there's a definite chill in the air today, I had to find a cardigan to put on before going to church. (I can't seem to find my black cardigan, I'm sure I have one, scratches head.)

And of course, now that daylight savings has ended (sniff!) it was already dark by the time church ended, boooo. Also it's gonna be dark tomorrow when I finish work at the library, double booo, especially since I can't actually park near the library building anymore. I hope it's not rainy, it's being pouring down on and off tonight.

Anyway, I'm sleepy because as far my body clock is concerned it's nearing to 1am, so my brain is more frazzled than usual (LOL) thus it's difficult to put together a coherent entry, not that I have much to say.

Oh, wait yes I do! The little bro and I finally got over to M and Grandpa's house to talk about the cruise - they had bought delicious scones and even had strawberry jam and extra dollop, yum! Also...a fruit cake of some kind that was made by a friend. So that was cool. Although I didn't end up getting there early enough to start a Canasta game. However, I'll be going over not this Tuesday but next Tuesday which is sure to be fun!

Right, time is getting on so I better wrap this up here, I thought I did have something else to say but I dunno.

So, I'm off to bed!

Goodnight all!

anonymoose_au: (Hey! Bitches)
11:48pm: Yep it was the Short Dance last night which I got totally caught up in and it finished at about midnight so I didn't have enough time to update...

As for tonight, it was an absolutely epic and amazing Men's Free Program, there is no emoticon for what I'm feeling! I'm a bit said that Javier Fernadez the current reigning and two time World Champion couldn't make it a three-peat, but the guys that won really did incredible skates.

I'm feeling a bit shell-shocked though because during the night while I was snoozing away, Plushy decided to officially announce his retirement from competitive skating, which you know, you could have seen coming, but I was still kinda sad about it. I really wanted him to show the haters in 2018, but hey, he seems in top health now a days and really into his new project - the skating school - that it'd be a shame for him to give it up for a pipe-dream. And haters gonna hate, you know.

Anyway, I better head off because even though it's daylight stealings night and we get an extra hour I need to get up early and get to M and Grandpa's house before work tomorrow. The little bro will be coming over too so that'll be fun.

And lastly I finally got to go ice skating today myself, awesome! Although they've gotten ride of discount hour, not so awesome...

So now, I must say goodnight!

Ice Skating

Reach for the laser with Antic's Sims-ulator!
anonymoose_au: (I Don't Know...)
10:15pm: Well, at least I'm getting a good pun in, but in all seriousness this is so fucked up.

As you all know my memory sucks...and this time it's truly ruined my wallet.

I decided after watching the ice skating highlights on SBS that it was time to head to Macquarie Centre and get my skates on. So I'm driving when suddenly police car lights flash in my rearview mirror! I was surprised but thankfully had the presence of mind to pull over rather than keep driving like some of the idiots you see on RBT/ I thought maybe I was getting a random breath test, but after handing my licence over I discovered it was worse...much worse.

I had completely forgotten to register my car!

It expired last Saturday so for almost a week I've been driving around unregistered and uninsured! FUCK! How could this happen?! Why didn't I get a renewal notice?! Didn't I pay for it? (No that was my comprehensive insurance, which is a totally different thing).

The cop was very nice, but that didn't stop him from giving me a ticket for driving unregistered (although, he at least didn't give me one for being uninsured too).

A ticket for $650.

I'll type that out again for you in the back row.

SIX

HUNDRED

AND

FIFTY

DOLLARS
!!!

That's more than I earn in a week! That's nearly three weeks worth of savings towards the stamp duty for my apartment. Two and half weeks worth of rent.

It's an absolutely ENORMOUS amount of money! On top of the actual cost of registration and the CTP Greenslip (which is $900). Add to that the parking fine from a few weeks ago...and the speeding fine...my car is swallowing money like a monster. :'O(

I don't understand why this is happening! I've always been such a good driver! Now I'm speeding, illegally parking, scraping and driving unregistered like a complete loser.

What really kills me though is that for some reason, despite the fact I changed my address for my licence, Service NSW (which includes the Road Department) had my OLD address on file. How can that be?! Although as it turned out it doesn't look like the renewal slip came to my old place because I went there on my way home (I couldn't continue on to the ice rink :O( which was the cherry on top of a completely sucky cake) and the old landlord said he hadn't seen it.

So, the damn fuckers didn't even send it!! What the fuck?! The nice cop said I could ask for a review of the fine and see if they'd waive it, but I don't hold out hope...if they wouldn't take pity on me for speeding 7 minutes before I would have been going 20kms under the speed limit, I don't see why they would for driving unregistered and uninsured.

If the review fails you can take it to court, but like that'll happen! If I end up been found guilty I'd need to pay even MORE, and no way could I stand up in court and defend myself.

And here I was thinking the day was looking good because despite having forgotten to take my lunch with me to work I found my nurse's watch! It was on the shelf in the Returns Room of the library where I put my stuff, it must have fallen out. I was so glad to see it again!

However...that watch cost $7, so...it all pales in comparison.

And to top it all off? Because my car is more than five years old, it needs a safety check before I can register it. And absolutely no mechanic in the area is open on Sunday, there's no way I can register my car until Monday. I have no idea how I'm going to achieve it...I've got a shift at the library on Monday afternoon, so I'm not sure if catching a bus to Mrs S's and then back to the house to get the car and taking the car to my mechanic for the check will work because I'll only have 1.5 hours between Mrs S and the library. Although when I type it out like that....

On the other hand I feel like I need to get this looked at as soon as possible, apparently the check can take 15 minutes, but it all depends, it could end up been 40 minutes. If that happened in the 1.5 hours I'd be stuffed because the shift doesn't end until 6pm when the mechanic would be closed, so how would I even get my car?

So I guess on Monday morning I'll get to the mechanic's at 7:30 - Google says he opens at 8am, but who knows maybe he'll open early.

The thing is, I don't want to tell my parents about this...there's nothing they can do about it and even if they lent me money I'd have to pay it back so it's not like I'd save any money. However...Sunday night is when I usually go over there, but obviously I can't do that, even worse I can't go to church with Dad (either in the morning or the evening) because there's no way to get there by public transport (or at least not without catching two buses). But I'm a creature of habit so what am I meant to say? Although it's just occurred to me I could simply tell Dad (Mum will be away at a hotel) that my car's out of rego so I can't drive it without mentioning the supreme fuck-up that was the fine. I guess that'll have to do.

The other big disappoint is that I was supposed to see my grandparents' and little bro tomorrow morning (to thank the former for the money to go on the cruise and to finally give the latter that huge Ferrero Roche I got just after Christmas and which goes off at the end of this month), but obviously I can't drive there either. I rang the little bro to tell him my woes (he's had fines himself so he was most sympathetic) and he did offer to come and pick me up and even drive me to work, although we hadn't actually asked M and Grandpa if they were available for tomorrow so he called them up to ask, but they haven't got back to us yet, so who knows what will happen there.

Oh...and lastly, my activity tracker is still MIA, I called the library, but it wasn't in lost property, but then again...it's hard to describe, also the shelves are magnetic so maybe it's stuck to one of them. As for the Medical Centre, they didn't answer the phone so I have no idea if it could be there. I was planning to go there tomorrow to look, but...can't do that.

Okay then...let's wrap it up here, I still have my Russian to do.

Goodnight.

11:18pm: On this house show I watch on Sunday night. It's called Flip This House and it follows different flippers (as they call them), but I tell ya the last few episodes have been full of Angry Guys, like all yelling and swearing at each other. Can't you boys just get along? :OP

In other news, I finally remembered to get the box my mother found in M and Grandpa's garage from the boot of my car, although with all the rain that's been going on it hasn't really been that feasible. But the rain finally let up this afternoon so when I finished work and popped home before heading to church I carried it, my cupcake carrier (which I got from Mum earlier) and my box of the first few seasons of The Simpsons (which I'd lent to my Uncle Sam and his family and also got back earlier) into the granny flat.

Mum said there were clothes in the box, but imagine my surprise when I opened it and started to go through to find all these clothes I really like but hadn't been able to find! I have no idea why the ended up in M and Grandpa's garage, among them were my Garfield satin pjs, a few of my favourite t-shirts, a dress that'd been super good for the beach and stuff like that! I'd been wondering where it had got to for ages!

This why you have to be careful where you put things when moving!

Anyway! Grandpa's birthday party was great! Although I was only able to be there for an hour (boo), but I got to see M, Grandpa, Aunt Weed, her fiance Pete, Uncle Sam, Aunt Jo, cousin Mack and my parental units. Good times, good times. Although it was super humid today so that was a bit uncomfortable, good thing I wore one of my sundresses!

Aunt Jo kindly cooked sausages early so I had something to eat before I headed off for work - although as it happened the traffic was good (of course) so I ended up being early. I went to look around the shopping centre and got a call from my friend, Ben inviting me to go to the beach (although it was still pretty cloudy at that time!) but alas I couldn't go. Boo! As it happened the weather cleared up during the day and judging from the photo he posted on Facebook it turned out to be quite a nice day.

Speaking of Facebook photos, some people uploaded photos they took, including the group shot! I'm sure you can spot me. :O) And see everyone seems so tall! I thought my heels were a decent height.

Right, I better be off! I've got work tomorrow morning and I still have my Russian to do before I turn in. Let's all hope my bank card arrives tomorrow! I owe Mum another fifty bucks and Mrs S a hundred (I may see if I can send her that money by direct debit, guess it depends what she wants).

Oh and I almost forgot, I went to my parental units this evening after church (they and Mrs Lampe came so we all sat together) so I got delicious lasagna and salad for dinner. Alas the little bro was meant to come, he also missed the party this morning, but he wasn't up to it - apparently he partied a little too hearty last night.

For now, though, goodnight!

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.

For now, goodnight!

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!

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!

11:34pm: Ahem, I refer to the Bryan Brothers, those bastions of matching outfits in doubles tennis and for having won over a hundred titles and 16 Grand Slams, who alas did not win the Aussie Open tonight. This was most disappointing to me even though there was an Aussie in the team that did win - however their attempt at matching their outfits wasn't very good, although thinking back on it it was certainly a whole lot better then some of the others I've seen this tournament. We're talking one player wearing neon and the other in all white! WTF?

Moving along, it's bloody hot this evening, I've had to keep the air-con on since I got home from work, I did try to put it on fan a while ago, but I just ended up sweating. And it's supposed to get hotter over the next few days! I should see if I can go swimming at Mum and Dad's I think.

In other news I still felt kind of bad this morning re: the loneliness factor, in fact I even called Mum on the way to work to discuss it, since I figured she'd having something comforting to say. And she did, which was to stay on a month to month lease here in case some sheninigans happen at my brother's apartment (although we did tell him that if another flatmate fell through on him he should really find a place in his price range) and call my friends up more often (which is rather a no-brainer thinking on it).

Anyway, I do feel better! I think some of it might be because my house is terribly messy, it's not a pretty sight in here, but I picked up and folded some stuff and it's not looking so bad now, and I've finally arranged a time to go over to M and Grandpa's at which time I can return all my Christmas decos to their garage because I'm pretty sure I don't have room for them here.

Oh and I almost forgot! I went to bed before it ended, but this morning I woke up to find that after a nail biting five sets Rafa Nadal won his match and the Fedal is happening! No idea what's going to happen, Fed-Ex is truly the greatest, but Rafa is really good at winning against him! So who knows what'll go down.

Anywho, don't want to stay up too late tonight, so I shall wrap this up here.

Goodnight all!

PS Oh! And it should be mentioned that Serena William is the best in Women's Tennis having won her 23rd Title today, epic!

10:29pm: That would make a good name for a band, but that's not why I'm using that subject title. I'm using it because I cried today and for me the saying "Nothing like a good cry" is totally untrue. I swear I'm allergic to my own tears or something because after crying my eyes get swollen and get terribly dry and I end up with a nasty headache.

The eyes have settled down a bit, but the headache has continued, despite me having taken some Nurofen. Seriously, what the fuck? I don't need this.

You may well wonder why was I crying? Well, it's rather perverse, in typical Moose-style now that something I didn't really want to do isn't happening I feel all regretful about it, like I've made the wrong decision. In this case, it's the whole moving in with the little bro thing, him bringing back all my stuff yesterday was confirmation that the whole thing was off the table and now I'm worried about loneliness.

Because I did mean it when I told my parents some times I get lonely living by myself and I don't know what to do about that. Except I kind of like they idea of a family member being around, I mean I feel like I could probably tell the little bro if I was feeling anxious, where as if I got a random flatmate some day (not that I could in the place I'm hoping to move into next year) that wouldn't be possible.

On the other hand, I'm sure having to drive five times as long to work would get on my nerves too and maybe the little bro and I would end up getting on each other's nerves and all that. Also this feeling of loneliness is usually pretty fleeting like two or maybe three days at most? There was one point last year where it lasted like a week, but that was pretty much it. Upending my whole life is probably a bit of an over-reaction to that?

Aaaah, I dunno, maybe I'm just tired, I don't think I've caught up on my sleep properly at all this week and the tear-induced headache has done me no favours I'm sure.

I'm gonna wrap this up and turn in.

Goodnight all!

11:33pm: Yes! Although it was looking a bit dicey at around 10:30am when I noticed a message from the little bro saying he hadn't received the deposit from the Canadian girl yet and time was running out! He said he'd call her during his lunch break, but I prepared myself for the news I'd have to move.

Then just as I was about to get a phone number of a removalist Mrs S used when she moved last year I noticed another SMS had come in, it was good news! The Little Bro must have checked his bank account and the deposit was there! The move is off! :OD

So, that's a huge relief! Although I did briefly think maybe I should have moved in, because as I did tell Dad I sometimes do get lonely, but I'm more comfortable here. I just have to do more cleaning.

In less happy news, I made cupcakes tonight, but I must have done something wrong because they came out dry and tasting like crap. This hasn't happened to me in forever! They're pretty much unsalvagable too, like even if I slathered them with frosting they'd still taste icky. I'm a bit concerned the eggs might be off, I sure as Hell hope not because as I usually do when I make cupcakes I ate quite a bit of the batter. I guess all I can do is cross my fingers!

And make cupcakes tomorrow morning...since I really want to serve some up for Australia Day and just because. :OP

For now though, I better be off, although it's my day off and a Public Holiday besides I didn't get enough sleep the last two nights and that's sure to quick my ass if it continues.

So for now, goodnight!

11:15pm: And hopefully being cancelled!

Yes! This morning after doing a practice run to Mrs S's place from the apartment - and arriving with 10 minutes to spare (although it's still school holidays at the moment), I went to Mum and Dad's to discover Mum hadn't got the plastic tubs, because she'd been looking for crates - however, crates hurt like hell to carry once they're full - digging into the side of your fingers and all that. So I had to get the key to M and Grandpa's garage where I found the tubs in question and then it was off to the gym. As I was coming to the end of my work-out I got a call from the little bro saying that the Canadian girl had got back to him, letting him know she had found someone to take over her lease and that she was still interested in the apartment! Holy crap!

Of course, I'm sure you're all thinking "But Moose you gave in the Notice to Vacate yesterday! You're probably going to need to leave your granny flat anyway". That's what I worried about too, but I quickly called the agent who said they hadn't made a start on it yet! However, until I found out from Mum that everything was clear I couldn't outright cancel the notice so I told them I'd call back in the afternoon to let them know for sure.

By coincidence Dad called me up after that, to let me know about the crates in their storage shed, so I told him the news. He decided to stay out of it for now, LOL.

After the gym I headed back home, had some lunch, and a shower before heading off to my shift at the library. I spoke to Mum at home, but she said she needed to speak to the little bro in more depth before anything could be decided.

Just before going down to the library for my shift (I arrived in the area a bit early so did some shopping, there was bargains at Bed Bath and Table, I got some Christmas decos for the end of the year and a new swim/gym bag - it's rainbow!) I got a call from Mum, who said things looked promising with the Canadian, but it wasn't 100% so I would need to ask the agent if I could put the Notice on hold rather than outright cancelling it. She though it best to send an email, but I didn't actually have the agent who oversees my property's email address so I sent it to the original agent with a plan to call during my break to confirm she got it.

As it turned out the original agent wasn't in today so I ended up having to tell them over the phone after all! :OP But! If we're going to keep the same vacate date I'll have to give them a definitive answer tomorrow afternoon. Mum and I had hoped to be able to do it on Thursday, but then I remembered that's the Australia Day Public Holiday, so no dice.

But, I've SMSed the Little Bro since then and he seems pretty positive, so fingers and toes crossed all! Meanwhile, I'll take this opportunity to do some weeding of my posessions and what not. I do have quite a bit of crap that could probably go.

The only downside, I have to go back and get most of my hanging clothes back, as well as my spare TV and cube of fabric. Ah well, I gotta go to Mall at some point anyway so that's not so bad.

Anywho! I better wrap this up, since I do need to get to bed, however I will say this - Apple is a pain in the ass! A lady came into the library around 4pm trying to get advice on how to use some of the apps for e and audio books, but by 5pm she and the librarian on duty were having no luck getting onto the Apple App store because for some reason the lady's tablet was trying to sign up with her old email address. Eventually I came out to see if I could do anything, which thinking about it is kind of weird because I don't even use Apple!

Anyway, eventually I managed to figure it out and the lady was able to get one of the apps, hopefully she'll be able to get the other one's too, but who knows! But hey this will look good on my next review, fingers crossed. :OP

Right, off I go! Goodnight all!

PS: I almost forgot! The Fed-Ex triumphed tonight in his quarter final! Aaah he's such a boss! It's gonna be an all Swiss Semi-Final though, so fingers and toes crossed...

11:36pm: Well, at least somewhat as I'm writing this from the little bro's apartment, or I suppose I should call it my apartment. I decided to spend the night here after bringing over some more things including the kettle and giving notice (along with Mum) at the office of the agent that manages the Granny Flat. I'm hoping to practice the drive to Mrs S's place a few times before I move in completely just before going on the cruise.

However, this means I need to wake up half an hour earlier and thus I need to be in bed half an hour earlier...so I'll pretty much have to wrap up this entry here because I'm all ready late and when I don't get enough sleep a few days in a row I tend to get sleepy and headachey. In fact I all ready have a headache now, but that could be from being a bit dehydrated. The little bro doesn't keep a jug of cold water in the fridge here!

Anywho, this night has gone quite well, with the little bro and I hanging out in the living room watching the tennis, as I wrap this us Rafa's still on court, but alas, I can't stay up to see how it ends. Also our last Australian singles player is out, boo.

Right! Really gotta head off now. I'll have a more detailed report about the apartment next time.

Oh! And I ended up buying the green backpack, because I'm worth it. :OP

Goodnight all!
