Friday Again ...

We are each of us angels with only one wing, and we can only fly embracing each other.
-- Luciano de Crescenzo --

It has been fairly busy in the world of Meow. As you probably know, I have a casual / part-time job. I am doing 2 to 3 days per week, which is more than enough. The days go quickly, as it is quite busy. The people there are lovely, and there seem to be interesting converstations going on all around me all day !! I sit at my workstation, with one ear plugged into my ipod headphones, and the other listening to the chatting around me (and joining in, too, of course ... me being the chatter-box that I am !!). All the while, still doing my work. The work is fairly easy, pretty repetitive, but OK. For someone like me, who doesn't mind sitting in front of a computer all day, it's ideal !! I didn't need to go out and buy a new wardrobe, either. Jeans are fine, as is pretty much anything (of course, I wouldn't go in track-pants, or anything sloppy like that, although some do !!!). I cherish my time at home all the more, now, although I have always loved being at home, anyway. I am becoming more organised, with my housework, washing, cooking, etc., and also my blogging time. I am even finding time to sleep (tee-hee!!).

Chicky has just finished her last day of Term 1 at school. They now have 2 weeks of holidays, which Easter being in the middle weekend of it. We are heading up to Bonnie Doon on Good Friday, staying until the following weekend. Aaaah, a week and a bit of R & R ... nice. That's the good thing about working casual, I can take the time off with out any problems. Besides, the work will be almost non-existent for the next couple of weeks, due to the holidays and Easter, and we get lots of university students coming in then, anyway.

We have been getting some wonderful rain, over the past couple of days. Hopefully, it is the start of the end of the drought. Fingers crossed. It has gotten quite cool, too. I actually cranked up the central / ducted heating today, to blow out all the dust (I had the doors and window open, so we wouldn't suffocate !!). It hasn't been used since probably September or early October, so it's incredible the dust that accumulates in the ducts !! All is nice and sweet smelling, now, so I can happily turn the heating on tonight, if it gets cold enough (I could've done with it last night !!). Although, now I need to do some dusting LOL !!

Chicky is off with some friends at the movies at the moment, and she is going to "Walking With Dinosaurs" tomorrow. We (that is, Hubby, Chicky and I) are off to the Caulfield Caravan and Camping Show on Sunday, to drool over the camper trailer we want to buy !! Not sure if I've mentioned it, but we want to buy a TVan ... not too sure if they have been distributed OS yet, but they sure are popular over here. They are a funny looking little thing ... I'll try and find a picture, and share it with you in another post. Whilst there, we'll probably pick up a gazillion brochures and things, about places we want to go, as we always seem to do. Then we come home, browse through them, and sit and dream ... sigh !!!

Anyway, I had better go ... almost time to pick up Chicky !!

I hope you all have a wonderful, amazing weekend.

Stay safe, and take care,

Nice to read that everything is OK and you do like your new job. It's good to have something to do outside the house. I have never been a so called "housewife" I never liked staying home but with a child it's not so easy so finally the last 18 years I worked half time and that was OK. I just finished my easter decoration and have now a big basket with eggs, flowers, yellow chicken etc. on the table. Looks Spring !! Don't talk about heating ! We still need it since October, it's the other way around lol !

Hi Connie ~~ Glad you are finding the job is OK and no doubt you and family will have some nice outings over the holidays. The highlight, no doubt will be Bonnie Doon ~~ feel the serenity!! The weater has cooled down considerately, I haven't put a heater on yet, just a rug over my knees and a warmer top - so far.
Take care and enjoy the break.
Love, Merle.

Easter holiday are the best! They have always been my favourite, because the weather is so lovely and mild. So you are on holiday and so is Chicky. Sounds great.

I saw something on You Tube I think you love. Go to You tube and do a search on "Molly playing piano". She's so talented...

Oh, look I have a German word for my verification. Gehen. Is should have been katzen.

Lee said...

You have far too much spare time on your hands, Meow!!! You'll have to go out and find yourself a second job!! Hehehehehehehe! Just kidding around! You sure have your hands full by the sounds of things. You'll be looking forward to the Easter break up at Bonnie Doon. :) They show Bonnie Doon on some tv show the other night...I forget which show it was...I only came in on it half way through.
