What a weekend :D

Busy weekend is just bloody busy!!

I was in the city for my sisters 18th surprise bday party 🙂 She thougth she was just going for lunch with her parents and siblings, she was shocked as hell to see about 40 people jump out yelling surprise!!!  LOL  Was pretty cool.  I got to catch up with some of my cousins and I was in so much pain from laughter by the end of the afternoon.  They are growing up into fun teenagers and I am thinking I may have to organise a BBQ and drink feat for them all to come to the new place and have some fun 😀

I then went to my mothers place after that for her birthday (it was actually last week) but we were both so broke that neither of us could afford to do anything, in fact I had lent her money to survive.  We were going to have Thai, when we got there realised they are under new management and currently closed so we went and grabbed some noodles, was good to catch up with her.  She is sad as her husband is still in nigeria (for the forseeable future I am guessing) and she was missing him….which I can understand 😦

I finally got home at about 11pm, which was about 15 minutes after the hubby got home from ritual for winter.  He said it was an ok night, nothing huge but was good. 

Sunday we went for a drive to Castlemaine to find a screen for the fire place, we walked around for a little while and found something suitable.  Had lunch at a lovely little cafe…hrmm Pronta I think it was called.  We were there just on noon and there was us and another couple there….by the time we had ordered – maybe 8 minutes later – the place was almost completely full 🙂   Was ok food and not too badly priced.

We then headed to a winery just outside of harcourt – bress.com.au  and tried some of their ciders…they have some nice wines, a sweet cider which I really liked.  The problem being we asked for a Shiraz and by the time we got home to open the wine we realised we had a bottle of pinot noir….YUCK!!  So we were a little annoyed to be honest.

We spent the next hour trying to get the open fire lit…let’s just say it is a very differnt thing to lighting a fire inside as opposed to out in the bush 😀  We eventually got it happening and it was gorgeous.  Until the fire alarm went off about 4 hours later and my dog started to howl.  I was running around the house trying to find the broom to switch the alarm off  and he decided that was taking too long….understandable really – it was hurting my ears,  I can only imagain what it does to dogs ears…

What a weekend!!!  Just don’t feel as though I have had a break to be honest!!  LOL

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!

Holidays

I am on holidays from work now 🙂 YAY!

I wish they would never end, but as they all good things must come to an end….god that’s a depressing though….anyway…enough of that…

MIdsummer ritual this weekend, I am looking forward to catching up with the people from last weekend, hopefully will be a blast again! Reminder need to stick the camping chairs and braziers in the car so we have some fire and seating!!

We have to go midsummer shopping on saturday morning and we are going to check out a paper store in the city…

I have walked past it hundreds of times and never been in there….and I really want to 😀 So tomorrow we are going!! I am a little excited! I would like to buy a couple of leather bound parchment filled books for different purposes 😀

I was worried about our money situation this week and guess what – shares dividends got paid! YAY! Have money now am happy! AHHHA Thank you for the timing!

Anyway more cleaning to be done, chat later!

LOL forget my weekend

so in my last 5 page post, I forgot to talk about one of the best weekends I have had in a while.

We had a dinner party thing with some friends on saturday afternoon, and i got angry that I had one pair of shoes that were not comfortable…so D, the legend that he is, took me to DFO and I got a new pair of cherry 8up docs 😀 Am soooo happy!! YAY!

We then drove to our friends place, met some great people, and had a really good nght, eating, drinking and laughing 🙂 Didnt get home until about 1am..long drive home…was soo painful 😀 We met some of wiccan cousins from Canberra and compared stories, methods and ritual behaviours etc, which was a eye opener for how relaxed our line is compared to theirs.

Sunday we went to Ballarat, and instead of coming home at about 5/6pm, we ended up home at like 12pm. We had the best night, I haven’t laughed that hard in a long time. Even today whilst on the train home tongiht, I was having to stop myself fro laughing at things that were said last night. I think our conversation went from Porn, to mens urinals, to scones, to freemasonry and vegetarians….it was so random and so much fun 😀

Anyway I am goign to shut up on LJ for a while : Dahhahaah
