Monday from the future!

Or from the past, depending on how you look at it.

I'm typing this up on Thursday evening as I have taken Friday off and Monday is a holiday for me, and if it hasn't been completely obvious yet, I do most of my stuff here while I should be working.

So, On Monday it's the last day of the month and Big Buddy folks should be at 100% - How'd you do?

You're Flash challenge is What would you tell your future self?

There have been a bunch of prompt posted this week, previous button yourselves through them and find something awesome!!! There are so many more words inside you just itching to get out.

Now, tell me what your plans are for the week?

Happy Day to you all!

I'll update the count tomorrow...a day off means lots more hours of rewriting work, so I must add that in.
Well above the count, thankfully...and glad these 3 days have been productive enough to clear my head of all those training modules from last week lol.

I'm glad you made it, I hope you enjoyed the holiday!

a few more training modules to go...but I will hopefully finish this week.
I'd prefer to stay home and finish the last bit of rewrite on this draft...but alas...

I go back to work this week (had a whole 5 days off) but for shorter hours and days (5 hours instead of 8, 4 days instead of 5). And then back to school next week. So no real break/vacation for me.

I am planning to set up a schedule though so I don't spend all my "free" time sitting and playing on the computer.

Excellent plan!!!

I fail so far at keeping to the schedule...

And it's another cool and quiet Wednesday here in NZ! I have managed to re-do 28 rows of my temp. blanket in the new 5 degree C zones and it's looking great, even though I've only used two colours to there! I am so pleased I unravelled as it looks so much better now I'm not increasing idiotically and there is a better show of colours! I'll photograph it again when I get more up to date! Lots more variety to come eventually! ;-)

As for anything else, writing and such, no luck there! But this builder is supposed to come over tonight to talk about bathroom renovations — this is the second lot of contractors we're looking at — not sure what to make of it yet because the first lot have not been forthcoming on ANY kind of ballpark figure for the work (and I said it's OK if it's a wide range; just to get some kind of idea on $$$ would be great before we commit to another few $K as per her schedule!), and this guy said he'd send an invitation for the appointment to my email and so far hasn't — I was kind of waiting for that as I didn't have a number or email to contact him on (lost the card I had *rolls eyes*), and I wanted to switch it to next week because Hubby's gone away today (for work) and won't be back till tomorrow night, but eh... so I'll see him alone if he turns up — not a biggie at this point — and we'll go from there, depending on who comes up on some $ figures first, because this is painful! ;-)

And yes, with Hubby away overnight and just me and LF at home tonight, it's an easy dinner although my darling hubby then said we'd have to cook something Friday if we were getting takeaways tonight (he'll be staying somewhere with it's own restaurant)! *sigh* There was me thinking I could escape a scheduled night of cooking. LOL! Meh, I have lamb chops for Friday and they're not so hard, I guess — I am just lazy.

And now it’s Friday! Ugh.

LOOKIT YOU KICKING BUTT with the blanket!!! I’m so proud and impressed.
Did the estimator show up? I know that right now, here is not the time to build. Wood prices are sky high. It’s almost 3 times the price it was a year ago. If you are anywhere near similar, see if you can hold out a year. It’s absolutely mental.
I’m trying to figure out what I want for take out tonight. And while lamb chops doesn’t appeal, I need to get something. Grocery delivery is scheduled for Saturday morning and I know a bagel or a pb&j are not going to do it for me. I’m happy to be lazy! Happy

Love you hon, keep up the good work.

LOL! It's Tues here already and yes, I haven't done the Monday post, but that's next.


Yes, the building guy showed up - he's going to put some stuff together for us so hopefully we'll have something in a few days. I didn't know that about wood, though someone at work mentioned it was hard to get decking wood, and she was having to wait. I will ask the builders about that (we do produce building timber in NZ, so here's hoping it's not such a big deal), as loan interest rates are good right now, so that was part of our thinking - if the wood prices are up... well. Anyway, it may take us a good 6 months or more to get all the plans and consents done, and we're not in a hurry, so we'll see how things go.

What takeout did you end up with? We had our lamb chops after we went to a filming of a local TV comedian/quiz type show, which was fun! We'll be looking out for that on TV this winter, though we won't see ourselves (they didn't film the audience).

I didn't get anything fancy, chicken alfredo calzone. *sigh*

I seeem to get later and later with the replies.

I completely missed this somehow. *sigh* But I'm with you - I really ought to be working but... I also shouldn't have to work while I eat either.

Big Buddy last month was a flop for me, so let's not talk about that. LOL

Despite this week being half over already, I'm hoping to get some words in so that I have SOMETHING for this week.

It's full on summer here in the desert so that's always fun. Here's to a great rest of the week. Although, if the phone doesn't stop ringing, I might have to toss it out the window.

*hugs* I’m so behind right not with just answering comments. *ugh*

Happy Friday! Enjoy your weekend!

Thank you for everything you do!

It's all good. A little over a month and you'll have some help! *squishes*

YEEHAW! Right back atcha!

It's not much, but I do try my best. :D

There is so much paper on my desk, and all I can think about is what to get for dinner!
Jun. 4th, 2021 07:37 pm (UTC)
You know what? It's Friday. Think about dinner. And even though I only just finished lunch, I need to text my children re: the same thing or we might never eat tonight. Hah!

Jun. 4th, 2021 07:42 pm (UTC)
Get some arancini! Think of me!
Jun. 4th, 2021 09:02 pm (UTC)
Hah! I wish. And I always think of you! <3
