My Headspace

Lately I have had a lot on my mind. Now when I say that I don't mean a lot of things are troubling me or anything like that, I have just been busy. I have been thinking about a million and one things. Whether it be things to do with work or things to do with life or things to do with our trip. I have just been thinking and thinking and thinking and to be honest my brain isn't working. I think I need this holiday. To bad its still 8 months away.

The last week was a pretty boring one. It really has started to be wintery outside and as always when the weather turns to shit it makes you want to do less and less. Plus after working in rain, wind and cold all day the last thing you want to do is have a shower, get all warm and then go back out in it again. So last week was a pretty quiet one. We were meant to go and see The Lost Show play Saturday night in town but I had a really early start and a half day of work turned into a really tough full day and after the week I had I just couldn't drag my self out of the house and was in bed asleep by 9PM. Its an exciting life, I know.

Apart from work madness its been all go on our trip planning front. Domi and I have been planning our wedding and honeymoon for a while now but it is really coming along. We have booked our flights to, and accommodation in New York, DC, Philadelphia and LA and have pretty much worked out what we are going to do in each city. We still have a bit to do for San Fransisco and Las Vegas but most of our time there will be taken up by friends, family and the wedding. If you have been to any of these cities, please please tell me what is a must see and what isn't worth it because we really want to get the most out of our trip.

Well that's it. Bye now.

All the comments have disappeared so I'm really sorry to those people who left comments and questions and to those of you who couldn't comment. Lets try it again though. Any questions or anything you want to say? Do it.

My Question Time

Alright this is a bit of a long shot but I'm going to go ahead with it. Lately I have noticed a lot of new readers on here and I have to say that it is awesome. I'm so happy people read this, and I'm surprised people come back or choose to follow. I have to say though I write on here for me and not to please anyone else. This is important to me because one day I would love to get all these ramblings made into a book that almost details my younger years in a way. Anyway I'm rambling more than I should.

Todays post is a question post. I would love it if anyone and everyone asked me a question. If you know me it can be something to do with our lives or on the other hand if you don't know me it can be something as boring as my favourite soft drink. But don't ask that because its cherry cola and that is a chain email question from the myspace days. So thats it really. The best question will win an awesome prize.
(Prize may not be awesome or real, depending on your interpretation of prize, awesome or real)  

Anyway ask away people!

My Uplifting

Well its been a while now hasn't it. It seems like a billion things have happened and the whole world has changed again.

Lets go way way back and talk about Easter. All I can say is that I drank and ate enough beer and food to feed half of the Pacific Islands for a week. Its pretty much what our long weekend was based around. We kicked it off Friday night with a few close friends up at our place. For some reason at 6:15PM we decided to have shots. The night was messy. We drank a couple bottles of spirits between three or four of us and for no other reason than we just did. God I felt it the next day though. Domi woke pretty early but I couldn't even get out of bed. I rested my weary head for another few hours and then felt pretty good for some strange reason. We cleaned up the house and then spent the rest of the day on the couch watching NCIS on DVD. Easter Sunday we drove down to see my family at our family farm where my mother had waffles and a lavish breakfast waiting for us. We wolfed them down and then a short while later we had lunch. Lunch consisted of meat. All sorts of marinated chicken and some steaks. We wolfed that down to. After those light meals we then wolfed down cake and chocolate. I felt sick to say the least.

We had no time to rest though because there was more drinking and eating to be done on Hindmarsh Island at Emma's parents shack. It was a picture perfect night so we sat out under the stars and ate more food and you guessed it drank more alcohol. After a game of kings where Emma and Brad drank a full glass consisting of half red wine, half beer, we retired to bed.

We saw the sights of Goolwa the next day and then headed back into town to let our stomachs contract and our livers de-marinate but received a text that more eating and drinking needed to be done so it was back out again. We met up with Nicole and Calvin (two culprits from Friday night) as well as Adam and had tea at our old stomping ground, the Kentish. A small amount of shenanigans occurred at the bar and then later at Adams house but after such a huge weekend we were all partied out and it was time to get back into the swing of work.

It was almost bizarre being back at work after having so long off. The week, even though only three days seemed to last forever except for Wednesday night. Wednesday night was bliss. Domi and our celebrated our five year anniversary by having a beautiful home cooked meal and some amazing wines. Domi cooked an entree of bruschetta followed by fillet mignons with garlic sauce, asparagus, roast potatoes and stuffed red capsicums. It was absolutely amazing. Easily the best meal I have ever eaten outside a resturaunt. After such a full on weekend it was so amazing to just be able to relax and spend some time with her. The incredible meal was a bonus too.

Apart from all that craziness my world has been pretty much same old same old. Work has been a bit crazy. We lifted some of the concrete panels that we have been pouring and moved them off of our casting bed so its on to the next round of pours. The panels we lifted were lift shaft panels so they looked odd because of all the doorways they had in them. Bah.

Anywho I'm off to watch some TV before an early night. Bye now.
