well ... now that i am working again, all-be-it only temporarily, the prospect of perhaps flying south to listen to bands play raises its tempting head again.
I shall have to trawl to see if anybody i love is playing in the next few months.
For it will only be the next few months that I could possibly do it, as the temp job finishes 29 June (though of course potentially sooner if they suddenly decide to get rid of all the temps or potentially longer if they think i am good and they still need me).
It is a maintenance call centre and so far not unpleasant. Not busy this week, which is both good and bad. Time to settle in, but one learns quicker with more variety. First pay isn't until Wednesday or Thursday and I am champing at the bit and living on tuna in white sauce with rice for the foreseeable future.
Probably mostly porridge.
Not sure if I'll cope with porridge for the next five days.
Particularly if I have to resort to the powdered milk with it.
Borrowed money from the eldest which I am vastly looking back to paying back next week. And sister, who has also been very kind to me. And thinking obsessively about all the things I want to buy and trying to mentally brake myself at the sametime.
but i NEED an ironingboard and a carpet shampooer and cupboards and chests of drawers and large wall hanging mirrors to remind myself to iron and brush my hair and tidy the darn room they are reflecting.
I decided that one of the deciding factors in my decline into true boom-site-ed-ness was the lack of mirrors. Have not had mirrors around for decades. Need perspective. Plus I've seen a nice big one with a lovely frame at a second hand store :) wantz wantz wantz
but am going to be terribly strict on the saving side of things as well, since I have become better at surviving on what is essentially less than half pay. $600 a fortnight I can't cope with, but $700 or $800 a fortnight I think I could do.
Niece and nephews birthdays coming up too. Gotta makeup for Christmas.
