xmas & new years

I guess I had a break from blogging as well as work over the Xmas/New Year break.

Work asked us all to have two weeks off and it was a much needed break for me.

bf was working through this period, except for the public holidays, so I got a lot of me & kitties time.

I didnt achieve much, if anything, but I think that was what I needed.

I slept a lot, watched movies and did things around the house.  I hardly ever left the house, unless we had something planned with friends.

Santa was good to us.  My new Kindle Fire is great and bf loves his new light sabre.  He is such a “man child” at heart.

bf ‘s grumpiness continued until we had a talk.  He told me the “little things” I did that annoyed him.  It took a bit of encouragement to get it out of him, but it was good to know, so I dont do them anymore and  make him grumpy.  They were only “little things”, but I get that “little things” can hit a nerve, so they were easy things to rectify.  If he never told me I would keep on doing them and annoy him more.

Since that chat, the old bf is back.  What a relief!  I hope it stays this way, because we generally never argue and get along quite well and make each other laugh with the silly things we do.

But the holidays came to an end 😦 and am now back at work.


i know what santa is bringing me

because I have been a good girl 🙂

Does anyone have one?  Which one?  And do you love it, like it or does it collect dust?

bf is getting a new light sabre to add to his collection, even though he hasnt been a good as me this year. He has been norty by being grumpy 😐

I am getting a Kindle Fire (wifi)


I cant wait to play with it!!!

I have been reading kindle books on my iPhone 4S and didnt really know much about the Kindle.  I knew what it was, but never really looked into it, until a couple of colleagues were discussing them and the one I am getting has a touch screen, so I can flick the pages like a book.

made it

Well I made it through the weekend.

Most of Saturday was spent on the couch watching TV I had recorded and catching up with Weeds and Sons of Anarchy Episode One of the new Season.

We went to a friends house for a BBQ for a catchup.  The usual suspects were there, as it had been a while since the last BBQ.  brought a couple of his light sabres and everyone turned into their inner child and had a few laughs with a few rounds of light sabre competitions.

On Sunday we went to one of bf’s colleagues Engagement BBQ out in the burbs.  Somewhere I had never been to.

I didnt know anyone there, but a couple of bf’s colleagues were there with their girlfriends, so we all chatted.

Then it was Sunday night and time to prepare ourselves for the five day week ahead at work.  Yippeeee!!!! NOT!
