My Well of a Time

The last couple of weeks have been pretty hectic at work and if you haven't noticed by now, work is a huge part of my life. The weekend was different. It was very relaxed. Domi and I caught up with my parents Friday night to talk trip plans and organize things for the wedding. We went all out and had toasted sandwiches and it was just nice. The weekend was really family based actually and Saturday night we went out to Magill to see Domi's mum and her new boyfriend. Its really great that she has finally found someone and they are really good together.

The rest of the weekend was, well, I'm not going to lie, spent playing video games with Domi. It was good though and I think we both needed it.

This week again has been full on already. At the moment I'm working on a job putting stormwater pipes and sumps in for a new building at the Morphetteville race course. I have been there for a bit over a week now and it has rained every day. Now rain after finishing would be no dramas but while you are trying to connect down pipes and different old connections makes life a pain in the ass. The pipes we are putting in are 450mm so when it rains there is a lot of water... Everywhere. It hasn't been too bad a job really and I am working for another company so I turn up in the morning and if it has all turned to shit over night I just dig it all out again and away we go. One surprise is what we have found in the ground. We have found all the usual things like gas pipes, water pipes, fire services, fibre optic cables and power cables. We even found some odd things like old rubbish and horse shoes but I was pretty blown away when we found an old well!?! Definitely what I was expecting to scratch my excavator bucket over.

Bye now.

Haha I wouldn't be surprised if we did find a horse. Also we did use a locator and they didn't find any or the stuff we did!!
