My new bed was supposed to be delivered today, but i got a phone call saying it has been delayed until Monday now ….I am soo devastated…I have spent the last 3 weeks so looking forward to having an actual good nights sleep and it has been torn away from me for more time…CRY heehhe
Anyway, at least I am getting a new bed I suppose 🙂 Happiness at that thought.
Work has been good, travelling along and nothing overly exciting happening, in all honesty it is just dad doing all the work and so I think in some ways he is less stressed about it, as he is not worried about all the rework and broken stuff. Anyway step mum is back on board, completely recovered and I am trying to get her to understand the usefulness of putting everything on computers, I may be slowly winning that battle but won’t really know until a couple of months have passed and I can show her all the awesome reports the system can run to show her how the company is actually doing.
I have barely spoken to my mum since the family came out, just that few times that first couple of days, and then pretty much radio silence. I am not worried about it, but I am just trying to give her a chance to settle into a new life. The kids and John also have to get used to so many things I did not want to be always over there etc. They have all started school and well, will be on holidays now, but I didn’t want to be in the way. I will try and catch up with them in the next couple of weeks, but we have just been so busy lately I have barely been able to stop and catch up myself. Mum sounds so much happier and although I am sure there are other worries on her mind like money and job hunting with/for John etc, I am pretty sure that is better than worrying about them being killed.
So, I am not entirely sure where our days go, but, well I have this chest infection, so it has knocked me around for 2 weeks, and hubby was on call the other week, we have friends over on Tuesday night, hubby has gaelic on most wednesday’s (i come home and study), he was also attending one of the local scout halls as a leader on Thursday nights, (which I also use as study nights) and the weekends we have been going out together and just window shopping or going for lunch places etc and ejoying each others company really. It has been a great time for us to just re-connect.
Hubby is sick now, I think I gave him my chest infection – or some variation, so he is unhappy with me at the moment..hehehe OOPS!!! Hopefully he won’t be quite as sick as me though – he tends to have a very quick time of colds/flus etc; good immune system in action.
I picked up a passport application the other day, and I have to go and get some photos taken so I can have someone sign them for me. I am thinking of either taking hubby to hawaii or japan now. Knowing how much hubby loves Japan, it would be awesome I think, but given their recent turmoil, not sure if it is safe and financially viable etc. The airfares are certainly cheaper to Japan at the moment, but that doesn’t mean hotels and normal costs will be lower. I am going to have to do my homework over the next couple of days. We have to make a flying trip to Wodonga in the next few weeks as well, to get some paperwork signed and certified for hubby’s mother, so we can get his british passport – it is, after all what I married him for…just the passport…LOL then once we have all that sorted out I can actually start saving and looking into everything.
The credit card will be paid off in the next month and after that savings will commence for a trip of some description, then it will just be a matter of trying to get time off work for both of us for early next year….since I have no idea where I will be working at that point, it may be difficult to organise everything straight away, but I will see where we are at job wise when I start thinking of booking the flights etc.
Enough rabbiting on from me, going to do some study now…maybe….lol
