Stuff that's happened in the last few days...
mundane existence )
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*
Keeping this first entry fairly short because it's late and i'm tired and i have a big day of packing boxes ahead of me tomorrow!! I'm moving the day after tomorrow (wednesday) and I have done absolutely ZERO packing, i was planning on getting started on the weekend, doing some tonight, and finishing up tomorrow, but i got distracted (as usual), and found better things to do (procrastinate? me? surely not..) and now I'm starting to feel panicked!! Oh well, I have 35 hours before the removalists are due, plenty of time to box up my life!!

The things that distracted me on the weekend were Gurlesque with Lesley, Cub and Rox, on Saturday night, which was lots of fun... highlight was definitely the Fat Bottom Burlesque Dancers, they were gorgeous and luscious and dead sexy, a real treat to see!! Close second was the lovely Christa Hughes shaking her stuff in a tribute to the classic "Risky Business" shirt/jocks/socks scene... and a nicely packed pair of jocks they were too *G*

Sunday I was distracted by yum cha with the same three, and then mardi gras Fair Day... I dyked the stall for a couple of hours with Spanky, and then we wandered around and took in all the Fair Day sights... was fun as always! I left as it was starting to rain and the storm hit as I was on the bus, so when I got off I sat in the bus shelter and took my boots and socks off and then splashed the two blocks back to my car, bright pink helium balloon tied to my wrist, grinning like an idiot, jumping in puddles and generally behaving like a 4 year old... very happy-making :o)

I had to work today, and was frantic all day, so I didn't get home until about 8:30 and I had to go out again about 11 to get boxes from Woolies for packing... the highlight of today was informing everyone that I'm taking part in the Worlds Greatest Shave fundraiser for the Leukaemia Foundation... I decided that if I get $300 in sponsorship I will shave my head... so far, after one day, I'm up to $215!!! Very cool... Spanky said she'd donate extra if she could be the one to shave my head, and really, I can't think of anyone I'd rather let near my head with clippers!! So that will be happening around the 10th of March, AFTER my brother's birthday party which will make mum happy!!

alrighty, bed time i think... must sleep, get up early, sort my life into an assortment of cardboard boxes ready for the big move to Campsie... as much as I hate and dread moving, I'm kind of getting excited now!
