Snuggles went out first thing this morning but hadn’t come back by the time I went out to drop Joshua off at Nana’s house, which meant I had to drive back to let him in before I could go to work. I called out the back door (which is where I took the picture) and the laundry door, but he was nowhere to be seen. So I decided he could stay out for the day and opened the front door to get in my car. He was sat outside the flyscreen miaowing and wanting to be in, so I gave him a stroke on the head and went to work.
Most of the morning I was logged onto a server trying to get their internal website to work. However it proved too much for me and I had to pass it over to Jason to look at. In the afternoon I went to somebody’s house to look at a hard drive that was failing, but it turned out to be beyond repair so I had to take it back to the office to try and copy the data onto another one.
Got home at spot on half five and changed, then Deanne picked me up and we went to Julie’s for tea, a roast dinner, very nice, followed by a sticky date pudding with ice cream and then some chocolate cake. Think I may need a run tomorrow! Olive was there too and Joshua, obviously. The poor little thing (Josh, not Olive) was tired out and I think he’s feeling a bit peaky. He was quite clingy and wanted to sit on my knee and cuddle me between courses, we were a bit worried he would want to come home with us after seven weeks of no Nana, but he went for his bath and got in to bed without any worries. We all got a kiss and a cuddle, then he went off to sleep.
Tomorrow is a free day so I’m going to work on Richard’s project, need to pick Joshy up in the afternoon so Julie can go out to bowling in the evening.
I’ve had a bit of man-flu the past couple of days, so today I tried to relax a bit. I did do some work but not too much.
After dropping Josh off at daycare I spent a good chunk of the day sitting on the sofa watching recorded stuff on TV. Including Rise Of The Planet Of The Apes, very good; Top Gear; Mythbusters; Futurama; and finally half of a film called Scott Pilgrim Vs The World, which is pretty funny so far.
Before collecting the boy, I had to go pick up a parcel, which AusPost tried to deliver in the fifteen minutes I was dropping Josh off this morning. Then I went to daycare to get him and we came home. Apparently he played with Aiden and Kaden today, which is at least easy to remember! Paige wasn’t in.
I made roast veg’, veggie rolls (bought ones, for us), chicken nuggets (for Joshua), broccoli, cauliflower and corn on the cob. It was very tasty. Joshua and I had ice cream and orange chocolate Ice Magic for pudding, Deanne abstained.
This evening I ordered some business cards, postcards and fridge magnets for the IT techie business I am planning to start, Deanne is busy filling out some government forms, to defer her student debt repayments for a year until we’re fully sorted, as the cost is pretty big and it’ll make life a bit easier while I’m still freeloading.
We have to do a bit of shopping and cooking tomorrow, as our friends Will and Jodi are coming round in the evening. Julie has offered and Joshua has agreed to stay at her house, so we don’t have to worry about waking him up, which is nice. Not sure if I’ll manage a post as we’ll be busy socialising.
Completely forgot to say. Yes please, we’d love a copy of the villa magazine article. And yes, loom bands are all the rage here too. Luckily Joshua still doesn’t seem to have caught on to trends!
The picture is Snugs, keeping me company today, but frankly if could have been me sitting on the sofa in much the same position!
