Thanks to everyone leaving a quick message. Unfortunately they cannot be replied to directly.

I will soon be finishing at work due to my position becoming redundant to not only one big computer program hosted by a third party, but TWO. Anyway, my final day will be May 13, 2010 and then I will be free to annoy everyone with more diligence than I have been able to muster over the past few years.

One major aim is to do some travelling and I (with any luck) intend to blog my experiences. Please do keep an eye on the "blog" block on this page to see how things are going. Please feel free to comment.

My other aim is to explore the world of writing to a deeper level and hopefully establish a writing routine that will see me be more productive than recent years, and with any luck become a habit that I can continue when I return to the work force.

    A new month and only a matter of days to go at work.

    I caught my first bus ok even though I had got caught up leaving the house. It always happens when I have a few minutes to spare. The little things that usually take less than a minute expand to over the allowed limit.

    But catching the first bus was about the only thing that went right. We got to town for the change to the second bus in good time. There was hardly anyone at the bus stop indicating that another bus on the...

    The rest of the week was pretty ordinary - work, internet, sleep, repeat. That sort of thing.

    One night missed my bus connection by about 2 minutes and had to hang around for a half hour in the gathering dark for the next one. Another night the second bus driver was a bit of a lead foot and swung the bus through the corners just a trifle too fast for my liking.

    I'm getting home in the dark now that winter is upon us. There are a few missing street lights and the one at the top of...

    Tuesday - my flex day - and used to give me extra time away. I discovered a few trips ago that I did not have to leave first thing in the morning and waste the entire day getting home. Because of my membership in the priveliges program at the hotel I like to pamper myself with (may have to review the costs when I am not earning an income in a couple of weeks), I don't have to book out of the hotel until 1pm instead of the usual 10am. This gives me time to catch an early movie, a relaxed lunch or...

    The public holiday. The day dawned nice and sunny but the city streets were later found to be quite breezy and chilly where shaded by the tall buildings. Generally the temperature was quite pleasant for mid Autumn. I woke slowly, relaxing in the light luxury of the room, and turning on the news/lifestyle program to catch up with snippets of what was happening in the world.

    Getting ready to meet a girlfriend who was coming in from the outer suburbs, I decided to wear the top I had...

    The bus was miraculously nearly empty. The only people sitting together were travelling together. It was interesting to note that seats were filled as alternate window seats so there was an empty row between most travellers.

    I took a few photos before the camera battery gave out. The countryside was lightly flushed with the blush of Autumn. Long grasses were drying out after the last of the summer rain and turning a shade of pink rust under the lesser powered sun; bushes...

    Today is Sunday, and Anzac Day, and the day I set out for a weekend getaway to Sydney. I expected things to be shut first thing in the morning, but not quite for as long as they are going to be. The place I had hoped to stop into briefly will be shut until I am halfway along my route. Ah well! It does mean that I can spend a little longer over breakfast than I had planned (as long as there aren't more little children coming down here - the place is acoustically hard and their shrill...

    Less than 3 weeks to go.

    Friday night begins the weekend, and this weekend marks the observance of Anzac Day. There will also be a public holiday on Monday to make sure it is done in style, and I will add a flex day on Tuesday. This gives me a chance to get away for a few nights, visit the "big smoke" and have a little self pampering time and catch up with a girl friend.

    Just realised that my Yuku membership may have expired so renewed.
    Not sure how this blog system will work, or if it will be sufficient for upcoming needs.
    3 weeks & 2 days before I finish work under the redundancy scheme - and then it's "watch out world".
    The plante is already lodging it's objections - 3 massive earthquakes, then another 3, and a re-activated volcano making international travel dubious.

Is there time for anything after Viggo and Orlando and Gerard?

    Good. There's a lot of functionality available that can make things easier and prettier.

    Speaking of which, I really should re-vamp my profile pages now that they have stabilised the programs.

    If you ever get an answer about the "Top Friends" thing let me know. I agree it's something I'd like to see change. My whole reason for being here is the people I meet. Well that and Viggo- oh yeah him!

    We've been through so many upgrades and chnages on yuku and that is one thing that has never shifted. Seems it must be a low priority if it's fixable at all.

    Seli I still haven't tried the image stuff and on that super ancient laptop that would have bin impossible, tho it looks like the poor thing finally bought it. Home pc is much more advanced and the "new" used laptop is at least from this century and runs on XP.
    It might suprise you to know how incredibly batty and dense I can be at times.image

    Isn't it amazing how some of us hang on to the old outdated gear? Possibly not, given the costs of updating.
    Ah well! We'll get there in the end.
