Week one

Have done the first week back at work, and my god it was painful.

We were in bed by about 9.30 every night as we needed to be up at 4.30 in the morning to catch the train :/  This week D is on 2pm to 10pm shifts so I will be catching the later train more than likely and then D will be driving to work each day.  Thank god for the second car is all I can say!!

I had my parents up tonight for dinner, and it was really nice, they love the house and think it is very us.  I have had many friends come over and all have said it is much more a house than our other place ever was, so I am guessing that is a good thing 😀  D and I do feel so much relaxed in this place and I don’t feel quite to anxious up here.

Nothing much else really going on, I have started to look for work in preparation for August/Sept as I don’t want to be out of work if I can help it, although the idea of having a few months off it very very appealing 🙂 heheh  My long service leave – once paid out would be at least 2 months salary, so I may take that time to look for work.

I have been swinging between wanting to start a career and wanting to start a family….OMG!!  Yes I said it – there!!  LOL  The family is still a while off, however I am leaning more towards that then a career which I will likely have to interrupt or even maybe stop if we do have children….

D just got a new job as well, he got promoted into a role has been interested in since last year.  It’s actually the same job he applied for when we were considering moving back to Sydney last year, they opened the role up in melbourne and he scored the promotion.  WOOT!!  No more shiftwork, no more crappy hours – he will be on call for periods, at this time it looks like 1 week in five or something, but it means we can actually organise things and have a life now 😀  Which we are both loving the idea of.  He starts in a couple of weeks!  It also includes, we think, he has not been told/confirmed yet, what the pay will be, but it is approx 15k more than what he is on at the moment 😀

This change in our situation is also one of the reasons children might be a possibility in the future. I could quite easily get a part time job in town it would bring in enough bacon potentially, but that is a long time off and we still have so much we need to get sorted out and paid off before we can seriously consider it.  I would like to have refinanced the house and combined the car loan into the mortgage etc so we only have one payment for the loans, makes it easier to organise things that way.

Anyway, what a fucking ramble I have had 🙂 heehhe  and I don’t think I have even said anything much!!

I can’t wait until we have settled into a routine at home, then I will find more time to post and write stuff down!

finally have time

 So, I finally have time to sit and update my blog, it has been a while and I probably won’t really say all that much, however I am so thankful I am finally in a house that has settles.  That was one of those horrible horrible things that I never ever want to have to deal with again 😀

Our commodore has finally karked it – it needs a service awfully badly, but with the house we just didn’t get it done, funny then how on the same DAY that we picked up our second car, it decides it can’t hack it anymore, thank you gods!  So I am booking it in for a service next weekend and my baby will be fixed!

My birthday has been and gone and I missed my usual birthday post, it just didn’t feel like the time to do so with so much going on.

D went to canberra for a Samhain ritual and was delayed getting home, so I spent my birthday alone on the computers and pottering around the house, and you know, it was a fucking awesome day.  I enjoyed every minute of it.

I was unable to get up to Sydney for my friends memorial, however my thoughts were with the guys who did attend and my wishes were sent to the Aether.

I have, since we moved in, been almost OCD about keeping the house clean, there is something to be said for having a home you love and are proud of, I just want to keep it looking nice.  I do have to buy a clothes drier at some point as we have so many frosts out here I am not sure getting clothes dry s going to work too well.  But I feel like I have been constantly cleaning, and I know that is because we have been home for 3 weeks straight so we do make mess, ie breakfast, lunch and dinner…then people dropping past etc…so it has been constantly cleaning I guess.  

I am adamant we are going to stay on top of the clothes washing as well, even so much as to do loads midweek if we have enough.

All in all, everything has been going well.  D and I are dreading going back to work, although he may have scored a new job, fingers crossed he finds out tomorrow, and I only have to hold on until mid August before I can seriously start looking for work to get out of my cuirrent job, I hate my company, hate is not even strong enough to describe the loathing all consuming anger I have with the people I work with…It is very hard to explain, but I nee to just stay calm for 4 months. 9 I am going to try my hardest on that front!)

My Dad and stepmum are coming up next weekend for lunch to the new house, so that is a little exciting, I get to cook for them for a change, it will be nice 😀

I have started another blog – a la Minxee – and it is all about food 🙂 Well my food to be exact, recipes I like, want to try and things I have baked etc….bakefest.wordpress.com  if you are interested people 😀  It’s not very exciting at the moment, as I have not really had a chance to do much yet with all the house stuff going on, but I expect it to be updated fairly regularly with new recipes etc.

Anway I have to be on a train at 5.18am, so I am going to log off and do my nightly things!  I will chat to you all later!

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.

Back in the land

So we are home after our sojourn to Wodonga.

We had a fairly good time I would estimate 😀  We saw Avatar 3d, sherlock holmes and went to a friend’s bday party, they were I think the highlights of our trip.

Avatar…well sucked….the 3d was not very exciting at all, the story was really bad (i was already expecting the story to be shite though), the CGI was ok, but no better or worse than some of the stuff in LOTR in my opinion.  I think it was just me though that wasn’t won over with the the 3D effects, I felt I could have seen ti 2d and not missed any of the excitement, yes I guess it was pretty cool to have the grass look like it was really closer, but ooooooh that was cool just didn’t come to mind.  Overall I liked the movie though, the narvi were cool and the forest was awesome with the neon colours….I will fast forward the scene where the horse people start getting slaughtered though…that turned my stomach a little.

Sherlock holmes was pretty good, was funny I thought….D wants to go and see that one again 😀  

Bday was fun, we got roaring drunk and had a laugh, met some nice people as well which I will try and track down some form of contact details for them so we can keep in touch 😀

The real estate agent is coming over today to get started on all the paperwork for selling the house 🙂 So D and I are a little excited at being mortgage free at 30 😀  It is appealing I have to admit.  We could have the house sold by the end of February at the latest, which means we could be in a new place by the birthday period 😀  Housewarming AND birthday parties if you ask me!!  WOOT WOOT! 😀

Anyway better go and get dressed so am not semi nude when the real estate agent does get here 😀
