January 5th, 2010


life, back

Well, I kept monitoring myself in the very early hours this morning to see if I was still too sick to go to work. I wasn't. So I got up and went. Shockingly, I somehow managed to spend 30 mins online, pop past my post office, do a shop for gluten free breakfast options and still get into work by 9am. It's a miracle.

It's quiet here and I'm sorting emails and slowly gearing up to a three week power through to complete my tasks before I leave.

My holidays are a distant blur now - how sad.

Oh. And the toilet is still leaking.


New Years Resolutions Goals List

Scraping in before its the year proper, here's my list of things I would like to do or change in 2010. I've tried to include the goals of things that probably I will get done anyway (cause aren't they still technically goals of intent and what I am spending my time on?) as well as some lifestyle changes that will require active and recursive intervention.

ball of yarn

when does he move from naughty puppy to bad dog?

Grrr ... I just caught Benji in the act of removing the container I had placed to catch the dripping from the leak in the toilet. I placed it there after cleaning up and disinfecting the area *again*. He managed to tip the water all over the area in the process though from what I can tell, and hope, he didn't get wet in the process. GRRRRR it was fucking clean 10 minutes ago FUCKING FUCK, I am so sick of fucking cleaning up the SAME FUCKING MESS over and fucking over again.

My evening plans got changed, beyond my control. I'm trying to wing it but I had been planning on finishing off the work I was doing on Sprawl earlier today. Now I'm sitting here trying not to think about the mess in the bathroom and watching the Gilmore Girls.

I got a bunch of awesome things in the mail today. I got my advance reader copy of The Kosher Guide to Imaginary Animals:

I also got a gorgeous copy of Tales from Outer Suburbia which I think came from exp_err - thank you very much!

My fabric for the January quilting bee arrived. As did my other order from www.fatquartershop.com - the jelly roll and also some gorgeous random fat quarters in black/pinks. I think I might make the jelly roll into some cushion covers for my bedroom.

For dinner I tinkered with a dish I was developing before I went off to Tassie - my new tuna salad which has tuna and salad cream. I've been adding some warm veggies (peas, carrots, cauliflower) and wasabi. Tonight I substituted smoked salmon for the tuna. And added some potatoes. Yum!
