My Hump Day

Hey, it's hump day today and I'm quite happy. This week has been good but it has dragged. I just drove from the girls house home to meet dad before we head off to a job. I thought I would get some typing in and do a morning blog. The week, as I said, has been a bit slow. Its been an odd week because yesterday was really hot and now today is rainy and gloomy.

Monday night the girl and I were a bit bored so we invited Tilney over for tea. It was good just to chill out but as usual we ate too much and all got sleepy. Tilney managed to forget her sunnies and because I'm awesome I dropped them off to her early the next morning. She was in the shower and I got quite a surprise when he dad answered the door in his dressing gown. Hilarious.

Yesterday annoyed me. I headed home and went to work. My old man bought a new ute so he was picking that up in the afternoon. We did some small jobs in the morning and then I had some time in the afternoon so I though I would tie up some odd jobs. A few months ago I received a statement telling me that I owed the government a bit of money from when I was at uni but I did not think it was correct because I had paid everything up front when I was there. I had called the tax department and sorted some of it out but I had to head into the uni to find out what the story was, so I thought it was a perfect opportunity.

I got into uni and it turns out that they had originally sent me an invoice for an amount which I paid in full, but it was the wrong amount. I ended up owing another 600 bucks which I had been paying interest on for the last two years. This really pissed me off because it has cost me money now because they couldn't send out the right invoice. I got back to the girls place and had to ring the taxation department again which took forever because I sat on hold for another 15 minutes, again. After a few dramas it was all paid and settled but it still annoyed me. After all the commotion the girl and I ate tacos that were goooooood, and everything is tip top again, haha.
