Awsome Weekend!

Had a fabulous weekend! it all started with a bang catching up with my dearest Wetroast on Friday night as she was in town. The next day I flew up to Jaffa land (Auckland) to Dads for his 50th Birthday, was good catching up with the family up there and only just got back this afternoon. Had a killer of a toothache all weekend and I suspect its probably my wisdom tooth :-(
Thanks all for a great weekend!

Invest a few moments in thinking. It will pay good interest.

Spending the night watching this doco on house music by channel 4 in the uk. Its amazing to think that house music has been aaround for the last 25 years and how many types have spured because of it.

Im so used to washing by hand its second nature and I think Im a bit of a pro now, the only problem is that the cloths take 48hrs to dry :-( any way hers a good link on how to wash by hand How To Wash By Hand .

This was the second time this week that some one laughed at me about it and both calls were from head office (must think im a right doofis), gosh its taken all these years to get it right! but hay i like my way better might get it change by de-pole ..... Jonofin Mackie sounds good. Also got very wet today spent all day trying to get my waterproofs dry only for them to get saturated on the way home again!

A little bit of a mix

The maddest weather on the way home today, wind hail ect.... Poor Deirdre had trouble keeping up with the cars and at one point she was down to 65-kph on the motorway, got home and it was windy as an elephant on baked beans. Went in to my room and played on my decks as i was the only one at home and with the wind at full blast i was giving nature full blast with my stereo, oh poor ears :-(

Ability is of little account without opportunity.

Deirdre all hot and waxed

spent the day tiding up the house and washing Deirdre down as she hasn't had a good scrub for a month or two.
oh I have put a countdown timer on the side to count down how long it will be till I will see Wetroast next :o) wish i could speed it up!

How long a minute is, depends on which side of the bathroom door you're on.

power cuts

Lately we have had a few 3 hour or so power cuts down are street and it made me relies that i don't have a emergency kit just incase the BIG quake hits Wellington, mind you if that quake hit the house, it would probably fall down into to the hill so any emergency kit would be useless, well any way today i popped into Jaycar a little electronic gadget shop and saw this cute little dynamo FM/AM radio with LED touch which i couldn't resist i also saw that they had hydrogen power cells for $120 which would be cool as they only work on water but ill leave that for another day. Had a wonderful time catching up with Wetroast and my dad just a bit quiet now as no one is around :o( ill spend tonight tucked up in bed as its bloody cold!

Time is what prevents everything from happening at once.
