I have now booked a lesson for tomorrow at 12:45. So while all you UK folk are slumbering peacefully and the Oz people are eating lunch and the US people are having dinner or watching tv, I will be wreaking havoc on the roads. How bad can it be? Surely I will be able to drive! When I think of all the people I know who have managed to get their license, I think SURELY if they can I can…
is my new favourite hot beverage. It really is very good.
Today’s job is to organise driving lessons. ARGH. I really don’t want to. But it’s something that needs to be done. I should have learnt when I was 16!
I have not had an afternoon sleep since Thursday. This is a good thing. Today I avoided it by being out during the afternoon. Cymbal shopping with my brother. We also browsed in the puzzle section of a large bookshop. It was quite impressive. I told my parents we would need a new table if I bought the 18,000 piece one. However I don’t think my attention span is 18,000 pieces long. So we don’t need a new table. Which is good really because we’d need to extend the dining room as well come to think of it.
This afternoon my provisional registration as a pharmacist arrived. As far as I can tell this means I can practice as a pharmacist unsupervised! It’s an interim measure until my card comes. Not sure why a card takes longer than a certificate thingy but anyway. It’s here and I’m mostly official! Hurrah!
It was really quick too. I only sent away my forms at 4:30 on Wednesday afternoon and the mail came at 12:30 today. So that’s less than two days. Pretty good really.
I am currently wiblogging on the desktop rather than my laptop and now I understand why people’s eyes hurt from my colour scheme. It’s a lot more subdued on my laptop… will look at some alternatives after this. Sorry folks!
Today is domestic day. I have just done the ironing. I am not particularly gifted at ironing. And sadly there were some queen sized bed sheets in the basket. They are a nightmare. So big and unwieldy. And I banged my head on the wall while trying to fold the damn things. Ah well. I will have to find a husband who wants to be the stay at home father and do such things while I am out saving the world.
Next job on the agenda is cleaning the wok. Last night Mum was saying that she couldn’t go to bed because no-one (me I guess!) had done the washing up. Quick thinking on my part came up with “I was saving it for tomorrow because I don’t have anything else to do!”. But that’s ok. Someone has to wash the wok and I am the only one in the family who is not out earning a living so it really should be me anyway.
And it’s not that hard to clean the wok. You just fill it with water and a bit of detergent and bring it to the boil.
Today I decided to go on an excursion. So I went to a shopping centre place and visited a few places that wanted to give me money or take away my money and then bought another wasgij which was $10 cheaper than the last one I bought. I wonder why? Anyway, it’s a beach one. They only had two and the other one was the airport one which I already have.
On my way home I bought four tins of tuna. Two were a brand that I often have. One was Safcol chargrilled tuna in springwater. The other is Sirena brand in springwater. I had the chargrilled one for lunch and it was quite nice. I’m not sure about putting chargrilled things in springwater though… seems a bit strange to me. Sadly I forgot to buy bread. I eat more bread when I’m unemployed due to eating lunch at home as well as breakfast.
Haven’t started the puzzle yet. Spent the afternoon reading a book on the balcony and having a nap. Oh yes and cooking dinner for my starving family. Chicken, cashew and random asian green stuff stir fry with thai chilli jam. My favourite!
Today I only had a half hour sleep. And that was a power nap after a busy morning to prepare me for a busy afternoon. I did four different things today. That’s pretty impressive. I usually don’t like to do more than 2 different things. Even if they don’t take very long.
Now I have a sore ankle. My brother says that may be from repeatedly kicking my desk but I’m not sure. It seems unlikely…
So I’m not very good at doing nothing. I think I’ve had enough days of loafing.
Tomorrow I am going to talk to someone about locum work. However I won’t actually be doing any work for a while. Partly because I need to sort out my registration. Need to find a JP or a solicitor to certify copies of things. My father is a JP but that’s no use! My boss was a JP but that’s no use! She’s in Malta this week. And I don’t go to work anymore. Apparently the funeral parlour up the road has one sometimes.
After chatting about work I will go to visit the grandparents. Then do some other stuff. It will actually be quite a full day. Will probably need all of Thursday to recover from the exertion. Luckily that is not a problem 😀
So yes. Am very fidgetty tonight. Although that’s nothing new. It has been observed by many people that I can’t sit still in church. I can’t think how I made it through 17 years of school and uni without being dosed up on Ritalin. Maybe because I mainly disrupt myself, not anyone else!
I had a dream that I took up swimming last night. I was really good! I am always a lot more athletic in dreams than in real life unfortunately. And the water is a much more pleasant temperature in dreams too. I wonder why that is?
I have just finished the wasgij. The brothers and I put in a marathon effort from dinner time til 12:20am (a good 5 hours) and finally found a place for everything. I think most of the pieces might even be in the right places!
Day one of unemployment was rather pleasant. I woke at a respectable hour, read the paper, pottered around, did some tidying, retrieved some documents, posted some things, had a nap, did some puzzle, ate lunch, made a phonecall… it was nice.
However I think I have now accomplished nearly everything I had to do in the next month. Except learn physics, chemistry and biology. Tomorrow perhaps?
accidentally slept all afternoon instead.
