Long Service Leave – Alas, not yet

Why are long weekends never quite long enough?

I thought a four-day weekend would be more refreshing than it proved to be. I guess what it points to is that I need to have a longer break sometime.

Don’t get me wrong, it was nice to have the two extra days, but I guess the problem with short breaks is that they get swallowed by the backlog of chores that was still waiting for me.

On the up-side, I did read a bit more (oh how I want Amazon to release the new Paperwhite already so I can upgrade!), and I had some awesome Gelato in Kings Cross (Gelato Messina… worth a try if you’re near them), and I slept in a bit as well.

My next management goal at work is to co├Ârdinate with my fellow managers on a 2IC to develop enough that we can all start taking some more significant leave without leaving anyone in the lurch. Oh. And communications… that’s the two themes for 2014/15. As well as broader cross-skilling, three! Three themes for 2014/15.

(I have watched too much Monty Python… wish I could have gone to one of their theatre shows *sigh*)

Day 241 – H.S.H.


Dinner from the chicken shop down the road; I think they were humouring me because they were clearly intending to close just as I arrived. Three burgers and some wedges.

And now doing some chores to decompress if you could believe it. Been a very intense Melbourne trip this time around, so looking forward to the weekend. Once I earn it. Chores. Without too much thinking.

Thinking can wait till tomorrow.

Feet to the Water

I didn’t want to make today’s feature post about photography again. And the fake/real post was actually more interesting than the photography today I think, but that could be my degree talking for me.

Abbey and Lexi and Bronte and I drove out to the park today for some late afternoon photography in the setting sun. And the conclusion from my last photography post still stands; with tripod is always better. The Book, It Knows Things! *flips to read the next chapter*

We moved to the side of an artificial lake for some more photography, and the grass was just too comfortable. I ended up on my back, feet to the water till the sun was setting.

It really is nothing like winter right now; I think we’re skipping straight from Autumn into Spring this year.

I can’t wait to take the camera to the beach.
