My New Area

Last night was a night spent in our new neighbor hood. The weekend started terribly. We woke up Saturday morning to find that Domi's car had been broken into outside of my parents place. They had smashed the back window and tried to get in but couldn't so just left it. There was nothing to steal inside the car so its a real pain that we have to get the window fixed for nothing. Its a real kick in the teeth because its money we really cant afford because ever cent we have at the moment is going towards our house deposit.

After that annoying start to the morning the day did get a lot better. We decided to drive back to Dominique's mother's place so she could do some packing but just ended up lazing away on the couch and watching different games of football. After tea we went up to Steve's parents house which is just around the corner from Domi and I's new house. It was a really great relaxing night, we actually sat outside for most of the night and just hung out, so it was great to catch up with some old faces. We talked for hours about linking different actors through 6 degrees of movie separation. We managed to link Steven Seagal to Denise Richards in just 4 move. It may sound nerdy but it was hilarious at the time.

Today was another very lazy day. We did a little packing and sorted through some purchases from yesterday. We bought a $10 toaster and a $10 kettle so we will see how long they last. I don't think they will be the best but hey its the last two items I want to spend money on so they will do. P.s if you do break into our new house don't smash a window and don't steal the toaster or kettle. Byes.

My Concrete Chaos

Last week was hell due to work being so hectic. On Wednesday I had possibly the most stressful day of my life. It started Tuesday with me working a twelve hour day trying to get a job ready to be poured Wednesday. Wednesday came and the concrete pour was going well until the third concrete truck just didn't show up. I rang the concrete plant and was told that there was a burst water main and they couldn't batch any more concrete! I went off my face at the person on the phone because I couldn't believe something like this could happen and they didn't even ring me to let me know! I was very unhappy and very stressed because I had a 80 square meter addition half poured and no concrete on the way. I ring up four different concrete companies but they couldn't send a truck for an hour and a half so I had to wait and see what was going to happen. Luckily 45 minutes later a truck showed up and the pour continued. Its not a good feeling to have a job half finished and 5 guys standing around doing nothing. Very stressful.

Apart from that the rest of the week was pretty good. I worked for another concreter and we poured 200 square meters Thursday and Friday so very productive. The weekend was relaxing.

The best part about my week was watching an old punk DVD with Adam and Sam, it was something we hadn't done in years and it really brought back good memories. For a Saturday night where we did nothing, it was the best one I have had in a long time.


My Australian Lesson

Hip Hop is something you either like or dislike. I am not a huge fan but Australian Hip Hop is something completely different. Here is an old video to celebrate the Hilltop Hoods new single/cd coming out soon. Check it.

My House Photo's and 400th POST!!!! Wooooo

Here are some photos of Dominique and I's new house. Damn I can't wait to move in.

My Packing

Well with the new house purchase and the move getting ever closer Domi and I are slowing packing everything. We have been living at my parents house for the last couple of weeks sorting through everything from my old room and packing what we are going to keep. This weekend however we stayed at her place to pack some of her things. All up we have half filled my parents spare bedroom with boxes and boxes of all our crap. Its amazing how much crap you can accumulate over the years. I think out of everything I own, I have only packed half.

The highlight of this weekend was my 5 year school reunion on Friday night. I was great to catch up with a lot of people who I haven't seen for a couple of years. It was bad to see that a few people hadn't changed at all but great to see that some people have. It was odd that with a couple hundred people in the room I still managed to hang out with the same 20 people I see every week. Oh well, still great to catch up.

Work has been hectic to say the least. Im working by my self due to the fact that my father is overseas and I really could use a second person. Its amazing how much longer it takes you to do a job completely by yourself. Its been great though because I do like working by myself and doing my own thing. Being so flat out does make the days go incredibly quickly though. I have a little over a week left until my old man gets back but I have about a months work so I will definitely be crazy busy. Should be a good week. Byes
