fry day

What's the point of Friday? I mean really? Okay, I guess I got some work done this morning - in between the chatting, long coffee breaks and inevitable tomfoolery about the office - but after lunch?

Forgetaboutit.

Especially when lunch involves going to the pub for two and a half hours. Why we came back to the office I don't know. Especially since my boss was the instigator of the pub trip and drank more than anyone. Not like we have to pretend to work now.

Not that I'm even pretending.

Anyway. To more self-indulgent things: I'm catching up with the crushee this evening which will be fun I've decided. I seem to have an even keel about this now, thankfully. She's moving back to Tasmania for good in a few weeks anyway so it seems more important to try and keep the friendship alive than anything - which will be difficult enough over email, need to get things on a firm footing now.

So I'm positive about seeing her if a little fatalistic. Which I think is a good thing too - all I can do is be me and the cards will fall where they will.

On a much more positive note I'm crossing the ditch tomorrow for a week of well earned relaxation. Drinking coffee, hanging out with friends, generally mooching about Christchurch and, most importantly, helping Eroica sort out the house she just bought. Good times :)

Vanessa was asking me to head to NZ and see Eroica, so send her an update on the new house once you return!

I can confirm that there is no point in working on Fridays. That's why I refuse to do it.

Even keel. That's good. Enjoy.

Is there an echo in here? ;)

I'll send Vanessa an email and photos - I can't wait to do some tree planting and landscaping. It's been ages since I've done any gardening, I'm itching to wield a spade...

I will not concur on it. I think nice post. Expressly the designation attracted me to be familiar with the whole story.

y: You are wise well beyond your years! I wish I had the option to refuse work on a Friday.. Well, I guess technically I didn't really do any work today - but I was at least physically there. Something I must make plans to change.

and jen... yes, vanessa is right, you SHOULD come visit me. :-) x

Not my fault - you don't have a spade! Get one and I'll dig your garden over. It'll keep me warm in this crappy excuse for a summer you've put on for me...
