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. […]

Week 22 together!

I didn’t manage to get a picture of us this week so you get to enjoy a cute picture of Louie… sleeping… like a cat does.

Voting makes Louie sleepy.

Would you be amazed if I told you this week has been similar to a lot of others? Haha! Once again, not much happened during the week but we did do things during the weekend.

We both worked most of the week and I don’t think we met up with each other during the day until Friday. This week seemed to go really slow for me and Daniel was very busy with work all week so we decided we’d have a dinner date Friday night. We went to Papa Gino’s again and it was delicious as always. This time we shared some fettuccine carbonara and a meat lovers pizza.

Saturday was a fun day for us. Daniel went to vote in the morning and then we inspected a house that was just two doors down xD. Daniel and I always talk about having our own place but we’re waiting until I’m at least a resident so we can save up for other things we need now. We plan on inspecting a lot more houses as well so we can know what we’re doing when we actually are house shopping. Anyways, after inspecting the house, Daniel had breakfast and then we went out. There was a phone store, Crazy John’s, having a warehouse sale with plenty of awesome mobile phones for really cheap. We didn’t get there early enough for the great deals, though. After that we went through a few op shops, and even looked at some bike stores so I could show Daniel “Claus” the kind of bike I want. We did some grocery shopping for the family as well. It felt so grown up… and like we were doing it for ourselves. Like… we actually were living on our own and doing things for ourselves. I love that feeling :) I guess I should appreciate it while it lasts. […]

Week 18 together!

We both have beautiful blue eyes :)

Get ready for a long post! A lot happened with us this week.

Monday was mostly a normal day. Daniel and I had work in the morning so we were both out of the house. When I got home from work (around 2:30 pm, I think), Daniel’s mum informed me that Louie had been missing since 12:30 pm. This is where the day became… not so normal. I was pretty calm about for the first hour or so but the longer he was gone, the more emotions I felt. I started getting really worried (about Louie) and annoyed (with Daniel’s mum). Louie’s last owner let us know that he gets stuck in trees so I walked around the neighbourhood looking in all the trees. We didn’t have any luck finding him during the day so when Daniel got home, we posted a lost cat article on a website called petfinders (he’s now on the “successes” page :D).  That night was really hard for me. I cried all night because I was so worried. :(

Tuesday was a whole lot better! 😉 I had work in the morning again but when I got home, I printed off some lost cat posters and taped them up around the area. While I was doing that I also kept looking around for him. I also called the lost dogs home just in case someone took him there. They hadn’t seen him but they told me to come past in a few days if he doesn’t come home. Luckily, he did! […]

Week 14 together!

Our shadows

It’s been another week! This week has been one of the less active ones, though. Daniel and I really didn’t do much during the week except work and being lazy. We did manage to get some important things done and enjoy time with each other.

On Wednesday, Louie had to go to the vet. It was time for him to get vaccines, microchipped and desexed. I took the day off so I’d be able to transport him to and from the vet. That probably wasn’t the best idea. The whole day I was so worried about Louie and I didn’t have Daniel to cheer me up because he was busy at work! Louie ended up having a great visit and was acting like himself as soon as we got him home!

We had a semi-laid back weekend. On Saturday, we spent the first half of the day just laying around and exploring the internets. The second half was spent on a trip to IKEA and K-Mart for some clothes racks so we could […]

Week 12 together – KITTY! :D

Under his favorite tree

WOW! It’s been another 3 months that Daniel and I have been together! That’s a total of 6 months including the time I spent with him last year :)! And next Sunday we’ll be celebrating our second ‘friendiversary’ (the 26th)! The plan is to spend time together at the Royal Melbourne Show and possibly do another special something, like dinner.

This week has been an adventure! We got a kitty! One of Jacinta‘s friends had to get rid of her cat and we’ve been wanting one for awhile so we jumped on the opportunity. His name is Louie and he is a cutie (rhyme :3)!! He was basically thrown into a new world so the whole week we’ve been trying to train him what to do here. At the beginning he was having troubles with using the litter box but he’s finally got a hang of it! We took him out the other day to explore and now he can’t get enough of it! For now he goes out on a lead so we don’t lose him. As soon we’re confident he’ll come back, he’ll get to go outside all by himself :D. […]
