So much happening in my world, i just thought I'd squeeze in some journalling... Cub is coming to stay the night and will be here in about 20 minutes max, so I will write till he gets here :o)

I spoke to my boss yesterday and told him I was leaving, he took it really well, said he was happy for me and it will be impossible to replace me, which was really nice to hear - even if it's not exactly true! I then got to send the very happy email to the whole centre telling them I am pulling up stumps and heading to greener pastures on the other side of the fence (where do these cliches come from??)... that felt really good!!

I went straight from work last night down the coast to Port Kembla to visit the lovely R and her new(old/new/old/new) beau, Z... i was really interested to meet Z, having heard quite a bit about her over the last some months, most not terribly flattering really, but lately it has been incredibly positive, and in the space of 6 or so weeks they have gone from not really having much to do with each other to living together and that really scared me for R, because it's just so quick and I don't want her hurt... so I was a little trepidatious about the visit and about Z in general... but I'm so glad I went, Z is funny and down to earth and seems really genuine, and I have never seen R so happy, she has this huge grin on her face constantly, and they are in that gorgeous honeymoon shag-happy stage where they can't keep their hands or mouths off each other, and their house is full of laughter and this gorgeous happy energy radiating in every room... it made me feel good just being near them :o) So yeah, last night was good, we just hung out, Z cooked us a fabbo spinach and fetta pie for dinner and we chatted and laughed and smoked and just chilled... and then i got to listen to them having sex at the other end of the house, which was quite amusing... sounded like it was good!!

This morning we hung around some more, popped across the road and met "the boys" as R calls them, the lovely gay boys that live across from her, and had a cup of tea on their verandah, which was nice... I've been hearing about the boys for ages so it was good to finally meet them, and their famed verandah also lived up to expectations!

R & Z headed off to somewhere past Canberra at lunchtime to visit Z's family (eek... inlaws!!) and I headed up to Bulli and met S&T for lunch at Bulli Beach, which was lovely to see them and the puppies were there so that was nice too... we got burgers and sat in the howling gale force icy cold wind and ate and laughed and chatted, eventually the wind got too much and we were all so frozen we had to call it quits though, so they headed home and I headed further up the coast, to my next stop!!

S&L have just got a puppy, he arrived from SA yesterday... a Groodle (Golden Retreiver x Poodle), his name is Barney, he's 9 weeks old and GORGEOUS!!!! Very smoochy snuggle puppy and so soft and cuddly, love at first sight!!!! I so want a puppy now, more than ever...

and i have to finish this later coz C is here and there are better things to do than type!!! *G*
Well... the big mardi gras Queer Idols concert is over, after months of working hard, learning new songs by heart, memorising choralography, and general intense build up, it all went off beautifully! The choir sang really well, the audience loved us, we got a standing ovation, the guest artists were fabulous, Julie McCrossin who MC'd it was her usual wonderful self, we had a band accompanying us instead of just a piano (that's a first for me, hopefully not a last!! It made SUCH a difference!!)... altogether a very happy night! I had forgotten how much I love singing to a live, enthusiastic audience, it's so long since the choir has had one of them... it felt soooooooooo good, and i was buzzing for hours afterwards, makes me think again about finding a way to sing and perform MORE! I think i'm just a closet applause-slut really... :o)

It was a hugely busy day, and a little stressful, but by the end, although tired and drained I was very happy... Roz came up for the concert and stayed last night so that was lovely as well, it's ages since I've had a chance to catch up properly with her and it was wonderful to hang out, and we went out for breakfast this morning (her treat, gorgeous grrl) so that made the weekend a bit extra special for me :o)

After dropping her off at Central station so she could head back home I stopped off at the supermarket, stocked my fridge up again, and spent the afternoon laying on my couch watching Tipping The Velvet on dvd, a very relaxing, lazy way to spend a cool sunday afternoon, and some much needed quiet time out... I haven't had anywhere near enough sleep this past week, and have been running on stress and caffiene pretty much, so having the chance this afternoon to just wind down a little and get my headspace back to something approaching normal was definitely a bonus! Now I'm feeling a little post-hype crashy, which I was expecting, and it's not so bad... I will get an early night tonight and pick up again tomorrow I'm sure!

Off to make some dinner now... mmmmm... lamb chops and mash and vegies... excellent comfort food!
