All nighter

Monday Sep 29, 2014

After the office move fortnight from hell I got to have one normal night before having to pull an all nighter after one of our systems broke and was needed by the CEO (of course) the next day.

In the same way that a sloth is not designed for marathons, nor a seal designed for using a rowing machine I am not designed to work for 30 hours straight. At all.

I’d nap for an hour in between epic teleconferences with the US.

It was made even worse because I was due to have that day off as time in lieu, so I had a massive day planned of watching the last few episodes of True Blood and doing sweet fuck all. Don’t taunt an introvert with a quiet day off to themselves, after spending weeks with people, and then take it away from them.

That’s just mean.

I’ve been in Melbourne for work the past week, we were relocating one of our bigger offices down there and I’m involved from the IT side.

I’ve always described myself as a lazy workaholic and this trip was no exception; 7 full days down there, minimum 12 hour days, no days off and now all I want to do is sleep and not work. I’m taking a day off soon as time in lieu (no overtime, boo) and just have to get through this week.

I did get a few hours off on Sunday where I got to catch up with one of my favourite people (Daniel) for breakfast but missed out on catching up with a whole bunch of other people I would’ve loved to have seen – Joy, Jen, John. J’s represent!

There apparently was a bit of fall out after my last blog post, I should know better than to write about people who may read here. After all I’ve been writing my silly posts here for nearly 10 years now, you think I would’ve learned by now.

I flew home yesterday and got to hang with Poppy and an off sick Sabine. Apparently Poppy missed me as I got a text from Sabine while I was away with an “FYI, your cat is an arsehole.” Poppy normally sleeps on my bed and Sabine wasn’t down for that so Poppy scratched at her door through the night meowing.

That’s my girl!


Throw rocks at them

Monday Sep 15, 2014

What a beautiful day yesterday was in Sydney. I slept in, pottered around and then there was a street festival for the suburb I live in so Sabine and I wandered up to take a look.

I got an adorable new necklace, got a pot of soil with carrot seeds in it (look how happy I am!) and then got a pulled pork and coleslaw roll.6tag-2490348-809021996678870963_2490348

Approx. 5 minutes after this photo I bumped into my ex-boyfriend. Sabine, who is not great under pressure sometimes, threw a garbled warning out which only confused me.

This kid, who I adored and had an amicable break up with, then blocked me on Facebook and started seeing the sister of a friend of mine. I found out when a mutual friend of ours saw a photo posted of him and the sister on Facebook. I don’t think he realises that I know this. But I do. And now there is anger. Because he was one of the good guys. And now he’s not.

Ugh.

 


You’re the one for me, fatty

Friday Sep 12, 2014

I’ve been on a healthy eating thing for the past few months now. It’s working which is great, but I am fucking miserable.

I am continuing this diet because:

I am fat.

Sheer stubbornness.

I am enjoying watching the kilo’s come off (12 kg’s so far) but that is literally all I am enjoying. A couple of people have asked me how it’s all going and if I feel better and my immediate answer is always, no, it sucks balls. I am miserable, I am hungry and I do not get to enjoy ANY OF THE FOOD I LIKE!

I miss out on birthday cakes at work. I miss out on work yum cha lunchs and ribs. I am taking skim milk in my coffee and it’s balls. It has been weeks since I had cheese or cream and fried stuff I can only look back on fondly.

Anyway. I am eating well and it is lame.

I also moved house a month or so ago. I’m sharing a place with my sister. I have a backyard:

Poppy and I are both massive fans. I bought a hand push lawn mower thing and it pleases me immensely to cut the grass. I have banned Sabine from touching, looking at, breathing heavily near the lawn. Tomorrow I go to Bunnings to buy an edger and lawn feed. Yeah. Shit just got real.

There’s even rainbows and shit from the backyard.

WP_20140821_17_04_14_Pro I have to be honest and say I’m not coping well not living on my own yet. I knew it would take a while and Sabine and I are getting along well, I just miss my own space. And weeing with the door open.

Work is busy as usual. I have an eye twitch at the moment, it migrated from my right eye to my left eye though. I travel interstate next week for work to set up a new office, that’ll be pretty cool. I love a freshly patched comms rack. And hotel living. And expensing everything. I do not enjoy working weekends but I’m lazy so that’s a given.

It’s been a strange couple of months, lots of change which I hate but I imagine is character building. I’m doing good though, good things are happening and stuff. Hope you’re all well x
