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.

Kings is a drinking game where you pick cards and each card has an assigned drink amount or drinking game. Its always loud and fun.

Yea Kimmi its pretty serious when you have 7 or 8 tonne slabs on concrete above you.

Thanks for the comments guys.
