Journaling reads: A Friday evening spent in the shed. A wreath for me, a toy car for Claire. I was buffing, sanding, sawing using the machines. Mike's a great teacher - he makes me feel so capable. There was cheering when the storm started; the noise let us keep using power tools.
Day 8 morning:
Day 8 evening:
Journaling reads: I'd bought the tickets months ago, motivated by a 30 Before 30 goal, then managed to lose them. $7.15 to reissue and we were set; my first non-Carols concert in years, Mike's first time at the Sidney Myer Music Bowl. We had hot dogs and cider as we listened to the supporting acts. I sat there on the lawn, thinking about how happy I was. With a ten piece band and lots of energy, it was a great concert. Somebody That I Used to Know is the only Gotye song I really know and the one I was most looking forward to. An awesome night.
I'd write more now except that Boyf told me at 11am today (December 30) that he wouldn't mind having a New Year's Eve party at his place. Oih.
By 3pm guests were confirmed and it was definitely happening. Let's just say his house wasn't quite guest-ready and it's been a busy evening. Bed is now beckoning, so goodnight. :)
