Lo: some scumbag from the homeswest property across the road from my brother tried to smash his way in there late last night. Was banging on the door demanding a drink, tried to kick the door in when my bro wouldn't open it. Cops came and arrested the guy (who was out on bail). So my brother has finally got the lock replaced on the security door, and had to get his front door replaced. Glad nobody was hurt and that it didn't happen last week when his fiancee was home by herself.

Apparently one of my staff has called in sick "suffering from exhaustion".
If I don't see a carcass on the floor of my office then I want a doctor's note.

well she faxed in a doctor's note and is off for the rest of the week, as is one of the other staff members. pfft slackers.

Then Mum fell over out the front of the house this morning (and apparently had trouble getting back up).
She was pretty upset and hobbling around with a sore knee so I sent her home too.
Although, I didn't actually see it so maybe she faked the whole thing and is sitting at home watching foxtels and eating chocolate.

I told her she gets three falls and then she has to wear a personal alarm. I also offered to kick her in the other leg to even things out. I am not popular today.

does anyone know the best place to find out how much I earnt in a year a while ago (about 2006/7), I wasnt at my current employer and may have had multiple jobs that year which is going to make things difficult. Do I just call the ATO or something? Eek. I have no payslips either. I am not even one hundred percent where I was working that year.

Have you done the tax for that year? If not, you'll have to go to an accountant, who can access the ATO records and submit your tax return for that year going by those records.

Nah, thats why I need it. I got told I hadnt submitted my return for 05/06 and 06/07 or something like that and I have no idea, I was still in school/finishing up and working a few odd jobs before getting a traineeship so I am not sure at all of details. Guess I will have to speak to an accountant. Thanks!

Why is it irrelevant? It's the only homeswest property in the street and the occupants have been causing trouble since they moved in. I told my brother previously that he should report them for antisocial behaviour but he was too slack.

Lo: Dropped evidence of previous qualifications (copy of degree, academic transcripts, unit descriptions of relevant units, etc.) in to Polytechnic West to try and knock out some of the CEC photovoltaic grid-connect course prerequisites and get an email from the person I gave them to asking for evidence to meet the prerequisites, which was what I did yesterday! FFS, how hard is it to join the dots?

Geez Rach I knew you said you were stressed but I didn't realise it had got that bad. I hope you find something soon.

I just refuse to stress about work anymore, been there, done that and it made me very sick and miserable. Probably not a good attitude seeing as how I am the business owner. If I have a rough day now I take myself to the pub for dinner

Highs:
home made sausage rolls for morning tea
Shopping for makeup on strawberry net for the first time
Party tonight
Enrolled for a arty craftsy workshop thing next weekend where I get to paint and decorate a parasol.

Lows:
I am a tad hungover. I'm hiding in my office not doing a lot.

if you want to report homeswest houses you'll need quite a lot of evidence because they're absolute dickheads about it. the time the homeswest fuckwits next to the rear of my house threw bottles at our property the complaint went nowhere because i didn't have any additional eye-witnesses (bit hard when it's straight from their yard in to my yard).

i think you have to blow up a meth lab in the property before you'll get evicted

Well I think in this instance the police report helped, plus his insurer is chasing up homeswest with a bill for damages.

But the poor guy next door spends every morning picking the trash up from his front yard that they have thrown over the fence.

Lo: spent the day helping mum pack up the old house. Seriously I have inhaled more dust than the time I camped at Southbound
Hi: found Dad's coat with his service medals on (bit late for anzac day) and I scored a heap of booze, being the boozehound in the family. um, tawny port anyone?
Lo: I felt physically and mentally drained afterwards, can't imagine what it's like for Mum - packing up 40 odd years worth of memories. She cried a lot.
not really a Hi but: I think maybe it's good that packing up things is prompting memories of happy times rather than just the recent memories of Dad being sick.

Hi: going to be all creative and paint myself a parasol tomorrow, which they are going to display in shop windows In Boulder and then in the evening it's avengers time

not really Italian or seafood but Balthazar is great for romantic dinners ^-^

Bar One menu looks good for Italian in the CBD, and rated highly on Urbanspoon.

Med: Programming mid-semester test tomorrow. Should go ok, hopefully.
Lo: Going to have to pay a visit to the real estate agent tomorrow and explain that it's a bit hard to get hold of my housemate's signature for the lease renewal when he's currently in Europe and doesn't have easy access to a scanner and printer.

Lo: Slowly coming to terms with the possibility I saw a friend of mine just hours before he passed away is a **** of a feeling right now. Been pretty numb for the past 24 hours or so since I found out, now it's starting to hit me. Even went to Roulette at the Scotto tonight to try and take my mind off it, but my brain's now flying at a million miles an hour trying to process things.

Hi/Lo: we are having a vocational breakfast tomorrow morning at the local foodbank. I think I'm about to eat out of code baked beans.

Lo: told the receptionist urgent mail had to go out via express post. Discovered after she left for the day it had not gone out, because we had no express post envelopes. I though "urgent" and "must go out today" were fairly fucking clear instructions

Lo: the coffee machine at work is still broken, replacement part still being shipped. I may kill someone tomorrow

She just doesn't seem to listen. I'm not the only person in the office complaining that she doesn't follow instructions.
I tell people to give the work back to her and make her fix it up, but then they ignore me too.

clearly I have no authority.

Summer is just kicking in to gear here - its 24 degrees outside and Im about to go snowboarding, followed by a barbecue this arvo down by the lake

Probs going to stay until October, come back to Perth for 4 months to sava da monies, and then head back. Working for 12 bucks an hour doesnt exactly seem like a good long term gig.

Whistler had the best snow of anywhere in Canada this year, if youre thinking about coming over I'd definitely come here

hi/lo: back from 2 week driving the Gibb River Road. Spectacular scenery, got chased by bulls, had to outrun a wildfire (twice! Same fire!), some dingoes ate my hot chocolate, billabongs, super tan, super fit. Good times. Horror flight home being delayed cos some guy died on the plane. Glad to be back in a decent bed, without ticks, grass-seeds and dirt.
hi: taking the next three days off work then weekend fun. Going to spend it shopping, watching Game of Thrones/Community and resorting my tunes.
