le Tour de France starts in 12 days. I can’t wait. Yes I know they’re all probably terrible drug cheats, but I love sitting up late, watching the French country side whizz by. Not to mention those boys in lycra! Ha ha! I don’t have a tellybox in my bedroom anymore, not sure if this is a good or bad thing. I never really watch it unless there’s something on in the middle of the night. I might spend a lot of time snoozing on the couch!! YAY Tour Time!
This is completely reposted from another blog, because I love it so very much.
I think I love it most because Stoya appears in it. I have a thing for Stoya.
Anyway, lots happening in my world, that’s as much as you’ll get from me for now. All good, will fill you all in if and when I can.
I just wish I had a fast forward button so that I could know some answers that are being asked by my own head (work related). Patience never was one of my strong points!
I hope you’re all well. So very sorry for the absence of posts, it’s been a whole month since I last wrote here.
I’ve just come back from a gorgeous 5 days in Sydney. The weather was perfect and spending time with my friend and her girls was wonderful. I don’t really go into the city when I visit her, there’s no point. She lives out in The Shire, so we hang around Cronulla and the beach or take the girls to parks to play. Or we just mooch around home. It’s always great to get away, have a change of scenery and talk to someone different.
I spent my birthday in training/doing a course. Given it was a drizzly, cold day I wasn’t that bothered. But it was kinda weird having all these people around that didn’t know it was my birthday. No one to make a fuss of me, no one to buy me cake. Ah well. My birthdays are always a little disappointing. Getting older will do that to a girl.
I’ve been relatively busy, but I can’t remember what I’ve been up to. I’m back in the dating scene, I’m sure I’ll have lots of stories, may not share them. I find it such an energy drainer at times, all that effort for something that may or may not go anywhere. That’s life, I know, but I’m a control freak and I hate it when effort leads to nothing. But never fear, it’s not doom and gloom and I’ll get over it! Or reinforce my status as a mad cat lady. Meow.
My friend Ben purchased me an amazing radiogram for my birthday. It’s ever so sexy and in really wonderful condition. I need to increase my vinyl collection now coz I’m already sick of playing the stuff I have over and over. I’m making a list of stuff I really want and I’m trawling discogs in search of sellers. Yay.
After my course yesterday I dropped in to see my sister and my niece. It was really lovely to spend a couple of hours with them, Pippa even did a little sick in my hair for my birthday! Adorbs. I did have a go at changing her for bed and boy oh boy, all those arms and legs and trying to get them in the right spots, what an effort. Not to mention she was squawking like I was murdering her, I felt a little flummoxed. Afterwards my sister told me that it’s what she does for anyone, so I didn’t feel quite so bad ha ha ha! We’ll get used to each other and we have a life time to do it.
My stomach hasn’t been wonderful lately. I had a ridiculously oily pizza on Friday night and I knew it was a mistake. I spent the weekend paying for it with liver pain and stomach cramps. The weekend before I spent the Sunday throwing up lunch, which wasn’t the best of times. I’m not overly concerned that anything has changed, I just think I need to be more aware of what goes in with my poor digestive system. I also need to get back to the gym as my body is really missing the exercise. My membership ran out in February and I’ve not done much since because I’m eternally poor. But I think I’ll have to suck it up because I need to keep active.
The rest I shall do in pictures, because I’m sick of thinking.
Hello, two posts in one week? Must be something wrong with the world!
I made it through this week, just. We had auditors in all week and I was part of a group that had to attend a meeting thing with two of them. It wasn’t bad. Not sure how we went, if we got re-accredited, no one actually bothered to let anyone know yesterday. I think everyone was just so tired they racked off home.
I made the rookie error of thinking my day would be easy, boy was I wrong. I spent what amounted to 5 hours trying to set up a new account with Optus for one of my clients. It turned into the biggest joke ever. To their credit, after me moaning on twitter, they did their best to fix the situation. Only after I’d waded through oceans of shit with the overseas, highly incompetent, sales team. MY GOD. Their idea of customer service leaves a hell of a lot to be desired.
So today is what would have been my Mum’s 65th birthday. And Good Friday. I slept in til 11am, boy did I need that rest. Since getting up I’ve pottered about and procrastinated a hell of a lot.
I did take some more in the Sniffy the Pony series, which I them spammed everyone with. So apologies if you’ve seen these before, but I want to share again because I can. (slightly NSFW but you get that)
I want pizza. Are pizza shops open? I wonder if my local fish and chip shop is open. I have no food in my house. I guess if all else fails I have a chocolate Lindt bunny I purchased for myself, because no one else will bother to get me anything for Easter.
oh and PS – TWO DAYS TIL DOCTOR WHO!!!
Oh I did another one, thought I’d tack it onto the end of this post…
I feel like I rarely update these days. Nothing much happens in my life really, that and I’m too tired to put more than a few words together. That said, I shall make this a photo post with added words.
Work is super busy atm, we’re being audited this week by the body that gives us accreditation, which means they go over EVERYTHING with a fine tooth comb. Not much fun. Pretty sure by the end of this short week I’ll be ready for 4 days off!!
I finally got around to replacing my gas bottle on the Weber. I made this scrumptious roast for my friend Ben and I one weekend. Love roasts in cooler weather.
What sort of a nitwit gets their star sign as a number plate? Taurus – sincere, talented, successful, embarrassing.
You know you hear those tales of people getting ridiculous bargains on ebay? I picked up this Kriesler radio/record player for a mere $5. Yup. It’s lovely.
Pippa was one month old the weekend just gone. She’s smiling and is very alert and active. I’m constantly astounded at how much I am smitten by this tiny human. Still not enough to want my own however!
I spent far too much time peering up at the clouds. I’m sort of enjoying this cooler weather, though I need to get into gear and find me some Winter clothes. My wardrobe is seriously lacking in all things warm. I also need to buy myself some new knee high boots.
Come on, you know me, always horsing about! Being properly serious and all that! Ha ha ha.
