This weekend I am rostered on for Saturday morning work, but Friday is ANZAC day and a public holiday. Tuesday after Easter Monday is today, so it is a short work week.
This morning I was awake at 3:30 am, so made some coffee and went down to the Living Room to watch the television and work on the laptop. “Inspector Morse” was on.
By the time it was 5:30 am I really felt like taking Max for a walk, so I left a note next to the Tea Tray and off we went for a good half hour jog to the sea front and back again. Max loved it and is quite strong now that he has a very solid build instead of being skinny like a greyhound when he first came to live with us.
The day at work, though, was really hectic. There were a couple of new reports, some Help Desk tickets and a backlog of e-mails from Thursday when I was off-campus in Gympie. I managed to work through a lot of the things, have a meeting with Bruce about one of the tasks, and set up some appointments. We had a meeting that went for two hours with Danny and Josh, and a chocolate cake for afternoon tea, which was a practice run for the “Big Morning Tea” on 15 th May to raise money for Cancer Research.
At the end of the day we stood around the “Guess the Number of Coffee Beans in the Jar” poster. It is quite a task to work on a strategy. Danny just walked by and said there are 1,232 beans in the jar. How useful is that, if anybody paid any attention or believed that he was telling us the correct number?
I found out today that the play we are supposed to see in a group is about some prostitutes in a Funeral Parlour, left to a girl by her Uncle in his will. It is called “Stiff”. I was not amused to find out about the play and decided that being up at 3:30 am for the ANZAC day Dawn Service would be more important that seeing that particular play the night before.
Anyway, it has been a fun and interesting day again and I am having a slightly early night.
