The week long celebration that is my birthday has started. I say a week long but as I’m on two weeks annual leave, let’s say two weeks. This week I’ve had Jaycee Junior in childcare so I can do some things both around the house and elsewhere and not have him around. I got a great big pile of compost delivered yesterday and it took 4-5 hours over two days to distribute that around the garden. I got too much so know how much to get next time. I’ve got a sore back and was really tired last night but have a good sense of achievement. Even more noteworthy of my efforts was the fact that it was 36 degrees celcius yesterday and blowing a hot north wind. I only worked till about 11 though and had a shower before heading out. I’ve still got a bit of sweeping up and I’ve got a mini stockpile in case I need it because of the oversupply.
Today after I finished I caught up with a friend and we went to have sushi for lunch. Mmm, mmm mmm. I love sushi and this was like a yum cha sushi because you picked plates off train carriages going round in a big circle in front of you while two staff members busily made all different kinds of sushi. I do love it a lot and was glad my friend suggested it. We then drove into the city and bought tickets to see Somersault. We sat in the cinema and 15 minutes after the movie was supposed to start it still hadn’t. We had to leave and get our money back as we both had to be somewhere straight after the movie was supposed to finish its advertised time. Bummer – I don’t get to the movies very often so was looking forward to it.
I’ve also installed a CD burner in my computer. I had planned to keep the original CD because you never know if you might need it but I need special brackets and after finding out that they’re specific to the manufacturer I decided to just swap over the old for the new.
