Crazy hours and more

Took Alex to the hospital for a flu shot in the morning, which is always an interesting trip, but totally uneventful. It did keep me working at home for the rest of the day, and I’ve got the outside room set up as a good office now. The kids have their lounge and table out ...

Happy Birthday to… me!

Happy birthday to me, happy birthday to me, etc… Yes, it is my birthday today, 34 today, though I expect for the most part it will be a day as usual as any other. No specific plans today, with the celebration of sorts set for Sunday (when we can have a day of babysitting and ...

Breakdowns

Been a funny week at work this week. On Monday my computer broke down completely, which saw me shuffle around any spare desk for a few days (we’re in a small office, so there aren’t many to choose from). Then, today, there was nothing available for me, so I have literally been able to go ...

Sick again today

Well, I say again, but it was at least five weeks ago that I last had any time off. And this one is quite different today, mostly just the headache/temperature/coughing thing. Half the time, I think I stay home from work on this because I want to avoid the hour and a half commute… ha ...

Can you hear me?

Another hospital trip today, this time mainly for Alex. A hearing test… to put it bluntly we’re quite sure heĀ  has some hearing problems, we’re just not sure how much. It would explain a lot, like his speech, and his understanding of things, and the way he reacts, or doesn’t react, to us in so ...

Friday on my mind

Currently in a work sense, I’m really not doing Fridays very well… Day’s too long, work is too overdone, and not enough gets done anyway. Work-wise, it’s all crazy… I’d rather be doing the new things, but the old things just take up all the time. And lunchtime is party time on Fridays, which is ...

Productivity

This is what I call productivity: On the train, to and from work, I wrote 2100 words of my new fiction project. About 1100 in the morning, and another thousand on the way home. Quite happy with that. Making good progress on this new thing… Then… at work, I was able to spend nearly the ...

Crazy Weather

It was raining and crap when I left home this morning. When I got to work it was still crap. By mid-morning it actually looked OK outside. When I went for a walk at 1.30pm it was suddenly clearing, quite warm and very nice. By the time I came back to the office at 2.30pm, ...

Back on the job

Well I don’t get a massive say in it right now, so it’s best to be positive. Holiday over, back on the day job tomorrow. We got back from Nelson Bay last night, so there was one more day off, and we had a “lovely” 40 degree day out here today (that’s celcius people!) Spent ...

And as the year draws down…

Here I sit, at our family place in Nelson Bay, thankfully feeling better (but hardly perfect), and planning our night’s activities, and thinking about the year that was. Only about five hours left in the year, and it’s certainly been a varied one. Really don’t go for all that “year that was” stuff, so there’s ...
