10 January 2010


I can't believe the last day of my holidays is over. I spent it pretty much sitting on my butt: I watched the rest of 'Nurse Jackie' season one, then 'Inkheart', 'The Strangers', and 'Paranormal Activity'. While doing that I surfed the net, managing to buy ahead bday presents for three friends with upcoming bdays. Now I'm fighting with a goddamn headache thanks to the handheld shaky camera work on 'P A'.

Anyway, the last week of my holidays have been quiet and relaxing. Last Sunday I caught up with Alex and Mark again, which was great. Monday I did some shopping at the sales with Mum (and actually bought quite a few bits and pieces), then went over to Rob's to watch a DVD (we settled on 'Big Trouble in Little China' - awesome!). Unfortunately he was/is still feeling off-balance and a little dizzy from his ear infection, so we decided to cancel our holiday up north.

Tuesday, Rich and I went and saw 'The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo' then visited the library (where I finally got said movie's book - at one point I was 400th in the queue!). Wednesday I caught an afternoon movie with Rob ('The Lovely Bones' - it was ok). Thursday a group of us went to Awhitu Regional Park for a picnic lunch (fantastic, relaxing day!). Friday I couched: finished The Host by Stephenie Meyers (finally!), and watched some DVDs... Actually, that was pretty much how Saturday and today went i.e. watching stuff and reading.

All and all it's been a lovely break. I'm not looking forward to being back at work, though I am looking forward to catching up with my friends there. Hopefully Monday will be a chilled day of catching up and getting slowly back into the work-groove.

Looking back, this time last year (Saturday I think), I was a witness at Dione and Luke's marriage... one year ago man!

Anyway, better go. I am wondering if I can still salvage my last holiday evening - perhaps a drive and some legen--dary Panmure chicken on rice kebabs...

Later xo
