My Stormy Storm

Last night the dudes and I headed out to the Ed for drinks for Helen's farewell. We met Helen through Calvin and she has stayed in Adelaide one time before. She is a champion so it was really good to have her back in rAdelaide. I'm really sick of all these farewells but I think last night was the last one for a while. I felt bad because I couldn't get out of work to go and farewell Helen from the airport. It was sad, again, to say goodbye to a friend but I hope I will see her again soon.

I had a huge day yesterday. I dug a trench through a creek bed to create a deeper gorge to stop it from over flowing into some adjacent housing. I dug and dug and dug and dug. I dug all day and then I dug into the night until, even with the lights switched on on the excavator I couldn't see what I was doing. All up the trench was about 400 meters long so it wasn't bad for one days work.

When we got home last night, from the Ed, the girl and I started to play a game of Monopoly and I am in the process of beating her now. She is watching House so we are playing in the ad breaks..... and I'm back.

Today was a pretty good day. I poured a bathroom floor, cleaned up some rubble that I took out of the bathroom and then cleaned up some other rubbish. It was pretty windy this morning but not too bad but by about four this afternoon it had turned horrible. Tonight there are extreme wind warnings because there is a monstrous storm front coming in over the gulf. Apart from the wind, rain, hail and thunder, its quite a nice night here in my room.

I don't really have that much planned for tomorrow night but I'm thinking of cranking Mexican Friday night with the everyones. We have a few things to celebrate so it should be good. Let me know if you're down. Bye bye.
