Minxee – Sorry my love I keep meaning to email you and respond, but have just been so busy I keep getting distracted by boxes and cleaning etc.

I am not affected – YET – they are not up to my level in the restructure, but all indicators are saying we won’t be affected and i am not holding my breathe – my role and my comparative roles are very different and considering we seem to be going their way with most things, I am not sure we will be suitable or needed in the new structure.  We should be finding out in a few weeks I suppose.

I am sorry to hear you were affected, but yes, there are plenty of jobs out there to go fo, just apply and go nuts – I know I am…not likely to get any of the roles, but heck, it is well worth a shot ๐Ÿ™‚  And the worst they can do is say no.  Seriously Minxee, if at worst case you take a redundancy package you will walk away with enough to keep you covered until you find a new job.  You are highly employable, so don’t stress about finding another job, you will get snaffled ๐Ÿ™‚

I am glad to hear your jaw is getting better ๐Ÿ™‚  Just make sure you don’t push yourself too hard.

Onto other things, I was hoping to resign from my workplace this Thursday. but was given some news which has forced my hand and I have to hang out a little longer.  So it looks like I am back to hanging out for September now, but I am also applying for jobs, as many as I can handle.  We had our half yearly reviews and as usual I was given some bullshit story about how well I am doing – HOWEVER – they have to mark harshly mud year and because I am considered "intimidating" by my manager my scores are low….no one else in the team finds me intimidating – in fact – in the 30 years I have been alive – intimidating is not a word I have ever heard used in relation to me.

Anyway So I decided they could get fucked, they could shove their half year review up their arse and they can find another fucking goat to play with.  I am done.  I am not going to go above and beyond anymore, I am not going to push myself to be better than the rest and I will not push myself to be better than average.  Yup they can go and stick it…so here’s to finding a new job – fingers crossed it happens soon!

On the moving front, I have called up the utilities today and organised a new phone number and internet and all that jazz, have also organised for our stuff to be cancelled etc.

We had the junk guys come back again and take a second load of rubbish – the house is now bare.  The garage is empty, the house is empty and I have maybe – 2 more boxes to pack. Just some general stuff floating around the house, you know random things you find as you are cleaning out other rooms etc.

Then I just have to spend the next week cleaning everything from top to bottom as well as I can and make sure it isn’t horrid when we move.

We also bought a new TV and cabinet on the weekend, my mum put it on her GE interest free card for us coz they were having a 40% sale and we saved almost $1000 on the TV we wanted to buy ๐Ÿ™‚  BARGAIN!!  So we will be paying her back once we have the settlement sorted out.  So we didn’t really buy it per se ๐Ÿ™‚ heheh

We will be looking at buying chesterfields as well for the new place, but likely after we have actually moved, as we have just got far too much on our plates right now.

Anyway, time to hang out some more washing ๐Ÿ™‚  

does this really change anything?

I was out on the weekend at my dad’s place having a great night, drinking, laughing, talking etc. Was nice to catch up with him again. Will be making a concerted effort to be there more often.

Anyway during the course of the night, the conversation went to a place that I am not sure I have fully recovered from.

My Dad, advised me that the reason my parents got divorced was because my mother was having an affair with her then to be second husband.

On the surface this may seem nothing major or even all that interesting, but my brain just won’t stop mulling over all the differences and changes this now makes to how i perceive both of my parents.

I will write more later, right now I am still too confused and unsure of what i know and don’t know.

slowly getting thereย :D

 We started on the garage yesterday, and can I say EWW GROSS!!  Far too many spiders and bugs and shit in there :/  

Our garage was so bad, we actually couldn’t even walk into it for al the crap in there.  So we have started to neaten it al out and make little piles of bags and boxes.  It is much better this morning than what it was yesterday, however still a long way to go.

We are considering the idea that we may actually need to hire a SKIP as WELL as the truck that is coming next week to take all the "junk".  I am not 100% sure of what exactly they take, ie general household garbage makes up about 50% of the stuff they need to take.  if they can’t take it, a skip it will have to be.  Not money I wanted to spend, actually, not money we have available to spend, but we shall have to find a way I guess.

We have a month before the move and from next week everything will be a little easier to judge how much more we have to go.

Today we are going to move the "junk" to the front verandah – people can take it if they like, but we want it out of the house so we can see what we are left with. and obviously make it easier for the junk guys to get what they need done.

Not much else going on in the world, been so focused on getting the packing/cleaning done so have been refusing any outings or meet ups, I feel guilty if we are out that we are not doing our best to get everything done before the time it becomes urgent.

I am so going to need a holiday once we are finished moving!!  Which will probably be in September and will be a nice long relaxed 2 month holiday, well that’s what I am hoping, although I would like to keep my LSL for a trip overseas.  2 months isn’t a hugely long time I know, and D wouldn’t be able to get time off easily, but I would rather we go overseas for a month or more to really make the most of it…..if that makes sense?

Anyway I am off!! need coffee this early in the morning

Does it everย stopโ€ฆ

 OK, so I know I have ben neglecting you guys, I feel awful!

Hugs Amh…hope you gave the Dr a mouthful!!  and Minxee my love, hang in there babe! once it is all over you won’t be in pain anymore ๐Ÿ˜€

So onto other things, D and I have managed to pack over 25 boxes – I would say closer to 30 at the moment, and we have approx 15 large green rubbish bags to be thrown out.

We have not even actually finished one room entirely yet, but we are getting so much closer.  I will do some more today being that it is a public holiday and I am home.

We have packed away all the DVD"s, Books, CD’s, ornaments (bar about 3 of them), we have most of the plates/cups/glassware/crockery packed aside from 2 of each plate/glass/mug for our usage.  I have left a couple of cooking pots/pans out, but the rest is packed.

So basically we are slowly going through all the cupboards at the moment and emptying them out.  We did the first bedroom yesterday, and I think we kept like 8 things out of a cupboard that was completely full, so full in fact that we couldn’t actually close the doors on it :p

It has been a mammoth effort and on the 20th March we have junk removalists coming over to take it and all the old furniture away ๐Ÿ˜€  It will cost us a pretty penny, but it means we will only be left with stuff we actually want to move ๐Ÿ˜€

I have not been online at all, as we have just spent so much time cleaning and packing that time gets away from us, we get home pack a box or two, then I cook dinner then we pack maybe one more box then go to bed ๐Ÿ™‚  So it is slow work, but I am glad we are doing it early and not leaving it until the last minute like we normally do ๐Ÿ˜€

We have not had a chance to do any sort of exercise, but I have promised myself that once we move houses I will do a lot more walking as I will potentially feel a lot safer in kyneton AND we will be close enough to the town centre that we CAN walk instead of taking the car ๐Ÿ˜€  So woot!  and the nearest maccas is in bendigo – so we won’t be able to just eat crap, it will have to be sorted out and it means we can eat better ๐Ÿ˜€

Anyway I better head off, I need to get some dog food for the bois, we ran out ๐Ÿ˜ฆ
