Miracle of miracles

Good Friday, starting a holiday weekend, and a very long one at that. Apparently Good Friday should be a day for miracles, or the start of miracles, or something like that. We had our own today, where the previously dormant lawn mower, that has refused all activity in the last three months, finally decided to ...

Trying…

As in difficult. It’s all good really, but sometimes small children can just drive you nuts. Alex is getting really frustrated with not being able to communicate with us properly… we want to try some more sign language just to help him out with that. And Alex seems to have killed my mobile phone, unbelievably ...

Hunting houses

It appears that now is a good time to get into the property market. If you have a job, and money for a deposit (or access to it), of course. Interest rates are low, the market is kind of low… and if you pick the right neighbourhood, your weekly repayments can be barely higher and ...

The clean man

I seemed to spend most of today cleaning the house. I don’t really mind that at all … as long as it isn’t too repetitive, it’s a nice feeling, to get your “mansion” clean and liveable. The kid’s room got a final makeover and cleanup, though there’s short odds on that lasting long. The loungeroom ...

Writing and Daily Show marathons

Late now… did manage to watch a Daily Show marathon including the election night special. Magnificent stuff! Have found however that writing on the weekend, at home, seems far less easy, even though I should be loaded with free time for it. But I guess I’m loaded with more distractions too. Hmmm… will have to¬† ...

A funny thing

A funny thing is watching Alex dance and slide across the wood floor, deciding he has to avoid the vacuum cleaner at all cost when I’m cleaning the room. He was laughing the whole time, and knew it was funny too. A funny thing is watching Will partially imitate the Haka before the League test ...

Shopping fever

It’s amazing how you can go shopping, think you won’t spend that much, but then spend lots, but then realise that it was all necessary anyway. We bought a bunch of new house things. It’s always how it goes — when you move there’s always a whole list of things you need that you either ...

The sound of a normal weekend

The moving is officially over. Did the last bit of cleanup today and gave the keys back to the real estate office. Still lots of unpacking here, but looking for more normalicy anyway. So we have quiet mornings and some afternoon trips and chores, and room cleanups. Normal stuff. Could do with that right now. ...

Seems like it will never end…

Yes, still moving, a little. Went to work in the day, and had a fairly terrible time of it. Might write about that a little more, but while there’s so many problems there, I need an attitude alteration as well (for my own sake–the job be damned.) But I spent the evening doing some moving, ...

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 ...
