... is slow. And more slow at blogging.
It's not that I don't really have anything to blog about, it's more "do I really want to burden my friends with my dramas?".... the Black Dog of depression has been here to visit me recently
However in less angsty news -
My 3 days a week paying job is going well. I believe I am making a solid contribution to making their digital archive collection both compliant with the Audit (Document) Act; and ensuring that the items can be accessed in to the future.
My 1 day a week volunteer job at the Museum library is resulting in lost literary treasures being unearthed (last week's 'find' - an 1888 printed book on an Australian Expeditery adventure that seems to be the only original copy left in the world - go me!). These items have never been included in a catalogue or list of holdings so it is a surprise to the Library staff when I unearth the rarities from the archives
I am continuing with the renovations to my laundry - and by accident - my bathroom (discovered that the window frame in there needed some derusting etc). Let's *not* talk about how well pavement paint can bond to laundry floor cement.... Grrrrr [multiple coats of paint stripper seem to be having an effect]. Of course I need a clean floor (slightly scuffed with a sander) before I can lay the new floor tiles...
Oh and I have committed myself to new window blinds for the apartment - wooden look wide slats in the 'plantation' style old world charm. Once those are installed (in 6 weeks or so...) then the lounge & kitchen renovations are complete; and it's part the first of the bedroom make over.
I'd still like to win a fortune, find true love, and help with World Peace - but those ones will have to wait for another day to be actioned.
Sorry - Dullus Paxus et Maximus - I'll check in next month and see if there is any more excitement in my life.
