Week 29 – Preparing for the holiday

Ciera, Daniel and Louie!

This week has been awesome. Mainly because I’ve been so excited about the holiday Ciera and I will be going on!! I’ve never been outside of Victoria, so this will be quite an experience for me. We’ve been preparing stuff and booking things that we’ll be doing.

Monday wasn’t too amazing for us. I worked, and Ciera did… something. She can’t remember what she did on Monday. It was probably something so incredible that evenย she can’t remember it. Wow, that’s very awesome!! Erm… yeah… Anyways. Tuesday, Ciera needed to purchase a few things, so she went to our local shopping centre, the Northcote Plaza. Unfortunately, she wasn’t feeling too happy during the day :(. I tried my best to comfort her and make her feel loved, and I think I did a good job. I’m sure she appreciates what I do for her, as she does the same for me! We’re both pretty amazing :D. […]

Week 21 together!

Us being cute :)

21 weeks together! Such an amazing milestone for both of us :). ย I don’t have much to tell for this week, as I can’t remember a lot of what happened because I was sick for a lot of it :(

I was feeling a bit sick this week, which was bad :(. I was meant to go in to work early on Wednesday, but I slept in through my alarm, only to be woken by a text from my team leader asking where I was. I still felt bad, but replied saying I slept in due to feeling sick and would go in anyways. I ended up getting to work a little earlier than I normally would. I got worse during the day, so went home a bit early, and stayed home the next day (Thursday).

On Saturday, Ciera wanted to go to a rally in the city, promoting marriage equality for gay couples. We were going to go into the city anyways so we went. It was pretty fun – Some good speakers at the rally, and it was fun walking down the street in a large crowd xD. We also went to get the Toy Story 1+2+3 collection on DVD. A store called Big W advertised it for $34ish, but they didn’t have any in stock. We took their catalogue and went to another store called JB Hi-Fi to try and get them to match the price Big W had the DVD at. They said the ad was actually a mistake by Big W and they can’t match it (which seems to be true, from the Google searching I did afterwards). We ended up buying the DVD from JB Hi-Fi even if it was more expensive. Now we finally have the entire Toy Story collection on DVD :D. I guess we should get a Blu-Ray player one day too, huh? ๐Ÿ˜›

Today (Sunday) was Joshua’s First Communion, which is a Catholic… thingy. He had a mass at 9 AM and a party at 3 PM. I didn’t go to the mass because I was doing some awesome stuff (otherwise known as sleeping), but I did go to the party. There was a lot of people there, mainly relatives and other family friends. Some nice food too. It was alright :)

Until next week,
โ€” Daniel

Week 19 – Two year anniversary!!

The teddy Ciera got as a two year anniversary present!

Another incredible week in the lives of Daniel and Ciera! This week was quite special for us, since it was our two year anniversary :D! On Monday, Ciera wanted to make some delicious cake, so after work, we both went together to the supermarket and bought some delicious chocolate cake mix. We also got some carbonara pasta sauce and some ravioli to go with it (can you tell that we love our Italian food? Haha :D). Pasta is delicious. Tuesday was the Melbourne Cup, so we both had a day off. I’m not entirely sure why the Melbourne Cup is a public holiday since it’s pretty much just a horse race, but whatever. It’s a holiday, so I’m not complaining ๐Ÿ˜€

On Thursday, I started work early again (as I’ve mentioned in the past). Normally the early days are Wednesdays, but since Tuesday was a public holiday, the early day got moved to Thursday. In any case, this meant getting up really early, and finishing work earlier than normal. I was going to meet Ciera after work in the city, but she had to bring Louie (our cat) to the vet for another immunisation at the same time as I finished work. So, we ended up just meeting at home. It was still great to get home early and get a little bit of extra time with Ciera (since she’s so amazing!) :).

Friday was our special day, our two year anniversary! […]

Week 15 together

We are so in love <3

Another amazing week together! Every day we’re together is a great day, and every week we have great fun, and this week was no exception (of course).

Not really related to me and Ciera, but on Wednesday, I had to go to work early. I work at a software development company, and our system is hosted on the Internet. Whenever new development work is going out to beta, the developers responsible for the work have to be there at 7 AM to help with deployment. This is so any bugs/issues can be worked out before people start their business day. Most of the time things are fine, and this day was no exception. The great thing about starting work two hours earlier is finishing two hours earlier. I also didn’t take lunch break (which is usually an hour), so actually finished three hours earlier than usual. After work, Ciera and I went off to K-Mart since they were having a DVD sale. We bought Land Before Time 1 2 and 3, Milo and Otis, I Am Sam, and Fern Gully. Each of these was only $9, which was great.

On Thursday, Ciera was working in the afternoon, and so she could meet me at work once I had finished. When we met up, we were going to go to a different restaurant along Lygon Street, but couldn’t really choose any, so we went to Papa Gino’s again. […]

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. […]

Week 8 together!

Kisses!

Wow! Daniel and I have made it through another month together! I never questioned we’d make it through but it’s still so amazing to think about. I’m really excited about next month, though. On the 26th of September it will be two years since we met online. To me, that feels more important than when we decided to be together. Life would be so much different if we never met and I know we’re both so happy we started a life together!

Anyways, let me tell you about this week. It has been really great! We’ve both managed to be pretty busy. On Monday Daniel and I went to dinner at Papa Gino’s, one of the many Italian restaurants on Lygon Street. We both got some pasta and it was delicious! We are planning on going back very soon :)! For my friends back in “The Valley”, Fazzari’s is very similar.

Tuesday, I had a Myki assessment. Before that I met up with Daniel so we could have lunch with his cousin. […]

Week 7 together

Smile :D

This week, like every week, has been pretty good! Ciera wanted me to start writing blog posts instead of her doing them all the time, so I thought I should write this week’s post :P. This week has been pretty relaxing, we didn’t really do too much. It’s good to relax every so often :)

On Wednesday, I had to go to work early (7am!) which was quite hard but I managed to do it. Because I started two hours earlier than normal (my hours are normally 9 AM to 5:30 PM), I also finished two hours earlier. Ciera met me at work, and we went to Lord of the Fries for ‘lunch’, and then went to Northland Shopping Centre, where we spent the rest of the day looking at beds and other furniture (Ciera wants a new bed, they’re quite expensive though!). Saw some nice furniture that we’ll have in our own house one day! ๐Ÿ˜€

Ciera’s been continuing to look for jobs. We’ve gotten relatively desperate about looking for jobs, so much that we’ve even applied to McDonalds. […]

Week 5 with Daniel!

Holding hands.

For some reason I’m just really not wanting to blog this week. Yet, I push myself to post one on here to keep people updated. Don’t be surprised if this post is shorter than most…\

Today was mostly a relaxing day for us. We managed to beat Mario Galaxy with Mario and opened up the ‘secret’ character. (SPOILER ALERT: It’s Luigi…). Now we must beat the whole game again while playing as that character and hopefully a new world, or something, will appear. Also, we need one more star in Mario Galaxy 2 so a new level will open. Besides that, we haven’t done much. Daniel has been working on an old computer today and I’ve been trying to stay happy and write some posts. Oh, and I’m hoping to accomplish all the goals I’ve set for today!

We saw Inception yesterday. I think I may give a ‘review’ of the movie on my site. My plan is to keep this blog strictly about us. Jacinta joined as so Daniel and her could spend some sibling time together. I know they’ve both been missing each other so I made sure we all did something together this weekend. We had a fun time while we were out that day. Before the movie, Daniel and I went to MSY (a computer parts store here, it’s awesome!) to get a nice, new keyboard and mouse for me and a hard drive for him. He’s setting up an old computer as a server, I believe, so we can use off peak downloading time, and such. :) […]
