Some Stuff. Mostly Pictures.
I bought a red poop chair (my name for them) for my study for $20 in Bunnings the other weekend:
The worlds best comfort food. Tempura prawn udon:
New bookcase ($129 in Ikea but thanks to gift cards from attending a focus group, only cost us $29):
The outside world:
RACQ call out #1 of the weekend:
Me doing “work” by “putting notebooks away”:
Fireworks. Love the sound of them over the ocean but the show was a bit poor. Our local show society does a better job of fireworks than this large commercial event did:
RACQ call out #2 of the weekend. Turns out the car wasn’t just “left on” like call #1 said. No, the battery was dead and needed replacing. Not shocking for a 2015 car who still had an original battery, but it would have been nice if the first guy had done his job properly as I’m suspicious that he didn’t actually test the battery. Unusual for RACQ staff to do a shoddy job but the guy was clearly a bit pissy and I’m guessing didn’t want a complex (see below) job.
But wait, there’s more! RACQ #3 arrived. My car takes a non standard battery and #2 didn’t have one so they had to get one from across town and #3 brought it to me and installed it. Which also takes a long time in my car as it’s in a weird spot. There’s a joke somewhere here about how many roadside techs does it take to change a battery…
And that was the “weekend off” that I desperately needed 🙁 Not very happy or relaxing.
Someone please promise me nothing will happen next weekend and I can trot around doing whatever the bloody hell I want in peace!
