The season for parties

A week from Christmas, and naturally there are parties everywhere. I went to my work’s Christmas party yesterday afternoon, and that was a fine occcasion. Can’t remember the name of the restaurant, but it was right down on the water, next door to McMahon’s Point ferry wharf on Sydney Harbour. A gorgeours view, straight on ...

Something I did in November

Something I did in November
Did a funny thing last month… I grew a moustache. This is how I managed to look by the end of it: Major facial hair has never been my thing, but I essentially got baited into it by workmates. It’s usually for the “Movember” charity thing, but I never got that started since I was ...

Light at the end of the tunnel

It’s almost all done now. The moving house that is. This week, after going all out through to late Monday night, I’ve instead been dropping by a few times each night, picking up more, or cleaning up more. Now there’s only a very tiny amount of loose stuff left in the house, the garage is ...

Back to work but feeling nothing

Back at work today (despite the not-quite-finished moving status), and feeling pretty crap. Quiet day, everyone else is on deadline here, leaving me to struggle with the same old shit that I always have to deal with, with the same ridiculous problems that have no chance of being solved, it would appear. I am really ...

Feeling crushed under the weight of…

Well, lots of things, really. Just so tired right now… work is ridiculous and must be stopped, or at least changed, and the house moving just seems ominous. There’s too many things to pay, too much left to do, and none of it seems like I can do enough. Um, enough of that. Sleep is ...

And that was the week…

It feels odd that I haven’t done a full 40-hour week for a long time, it seems. Certainly not more than a few in the last two months, with all the illness, kids in hospital and now moving insanity. Had 1.5 days off this week, for kid’s doctors and house hunting, but with house hunting ...

Always an upside

Well, after all the issues yesterday, it turns out that we’ve been offered one of the properties we applied for (and taken it, naturally), and that the rubbis hat work is no issue at all (at least not yet.) So we’re off to live in Blacktown in a week, and my job will merrily continue ...

Grrrrrrr…..

Spent most of the late night at home going through hair-brained questions passed on to me that originate from someone thoroughly repellant related to work. They were answered, and spoke clearly to my immense frustrations at aspects of the place, but it doesn’t leave me with much hope for it really. I mean, if this ...

Weather madness

What I’d like to know is how can it be oer 20 degrees at 12.30am last night, but be down to about 14 by 11am today? I dressed for one kind of day at 7.30am, then discovered it was really another kind by the time I got to work. Just when you think it’s Spring, ...

Friday ups and downs

Friday is good when you have a work lunch for nearly two hours. Friday isn’t so good when the trains home are all late, all miss-scheduled and the actual ride home takes well over an hour. But it looks like Summer is here, or at least a very nice spring. 25+ degrees today, apparently over ...
