Week 26 – The real half-way point and CHRISTMAS!

Merry Christmas!

As you can tell by the title, this week was the actual half-way point. 😉 We were counting months by four weeks but, since a year has 52 weeks, we messed it up a little. 26 weeks = half a year… blahblahblah. You get the point!

On Tuesday of this week, the business Daniel works at (PageUp People) had a Christmas party. His manager insisted that he go and even offered to pay for me to join. We accepted the offer and ended up having a great time! It was held at Richmond Union Bowling Club, a place to play lawn bowls. The party started with drinks and food (mostly BBQ). It later moved out to the lawn where we bowled… simple enough xD. It was great to meet all the people Daniel works with. I know some people were excited to meet me, too.

Nothing else happened during thing week until Friday. I got some bad news that day and Daniel got to get off work early!  I got a text during the day from work. They were informing me and my coworkers that there wouldn’t be any available shifts until AFTER 31 January. The break was originally supposed to be two weeks. […]

Half-way point! (6 months)

We love our boy <3

The past 6 months have gone by sooooo quickly! Daniel and I don’t really pay attention to what week or month it is until we start working on these posts, so we got really excited when I realized it’s been 6 months!! It’s hard to believe in another half a year, we’ll be on our way to America.

Anyways, This week has been like all the others… for Daniel at least. He’s been very focused on work and getting his presentation done (due this Thursday). He also has a two week project that he’s busy doing at the same time. Busy, busy man. 😛 Work for me this week SUCKED. It’s been the past few weeks, actually. I’m really getting tired of the company I’m with but I’m going to stick with them until I HAVE to quit. They’ve been taking shifts away the day before I do them and switching the times from what I’m used to. It’s just getting annoying. I plan on finding a nice data entry or filing job very soon! :)

Daniel and I met up only a few times during the week. Tuesday, Daniel met me after work at a train station in one of the inner suburbs (Camberwell). Thursday, I met him after work. I believe we took some extra time to get home, probably looking for bike helmets both times. On Friday, I was supposed to work but they called me on Thursday saying my shift wasn’t supposed to exist and then hung up… *ANGRY FACE*. […]

Week 23 together!

Being awesome waiting for a bus.

This week has been pretty amazing, much like all the other weeks. The only bad thing was that Ciera was feeling sick for most of the week :(. This post will be pretty short, I’ve got heaps to do so don’t have much time to write up a blog post :(

On Monday, Ciera had work during the day. She came into the city early so I got to see her both during lunch, and after I finished work, which was pretty awesome :). On Wednesday, it was deployment day at work again, so I had to be there at 7am.  This meant I finished early, so I got to see Ciera earlier than normal, and spend more time with her!

On Saturday, we both went Christmas shopping together. We didn’t buy too much, it was more to take a look around and see if we could find any awesome things.  Ciera found some pretty cheap and good clothes at K-Mart so she bought them for herself. On Sunday, we did similar things, except I knew what Ciera wanted! She wanted a bike, so we went to K-Mart and got one. Luckily I bumped into my dad at K-Mart, so he was able to give us a lift home (otherwise we would have had to carry a big box on public transport!). We nearly finished assembling the bike but then realised we need a bigger wrench to finish it off. We did buy tools, but only a small wrench. So Ciera’s going to buy a large wrench tomorrow so we can finish putting it all together.

Until next time,
— Daniel
