Bit of a mish-mash today.
Got woken early by my darling so nicely this morning. After he had ensured I was awake, he had something to announce.
"I turned on the downstairs light switch this morning and the switch went through the plate. We need an electrician."
Yes, good thing I was awake for that. Grumble grumble.
Do you know that most electricians - besides having a hefty price attached - are booked until next week, and the light is on?
Which reminds me, I had better pay the electricity bill. Because of address mix-ups and other shenanigans, I only got told about the final notice recently. Oops.
Although - if I don't pay the bill, the light won't stay on all weekend if I can't get a sparky here beforehand. Hmmm... Of course, the fact that the computers, fridges, freezers and most importantly fans won't work during that time probably precludes me from such manoeuvres...
Luckily, I found one who will be here late today. Could be very late today - or sometime in the next ten minutes. Its better than Wednesday next week, anyway.
Speaking of next week, I will be away for most of it (starting tomorrow) with family weddings to get to and visits to cousins and such.
It is the school holidays here from next week - 'Salina gets an early mark as we have to travel 5 hours to the wedding, which is being held tomorrow afternoon. Unless it rains, V won't accompany me due to work stuff. I suppose someone had better earn all this money we are spending on fripperies like electricians and electricity, let alone wedding gifts and fuel.
Oh, and have I mentioned the tuck-shop saga is (sort of) over? They have employed a lovely lady who I gladly handed over the reins to. Of course, they have not yet given her authorisation on accounts, so I am still needed for groceries and emergencies. And of course, all the volunteers failed to materialise for her as much as for me, so I get suckered in more often than I should. But yay, hey?
So yeah, pointless blathery post as I gird myself for organising a sudden influx of work I have just won - bound to coincide with the holidays, hey? But maybe, just maybe, it will help us get our heads out of the quagmire of week to week and get us ahead to - I don't know, a fortnight from now?
I will leave you with a beautiful picture of 'Salina, because my sister thinks I will need to fork out for counselling for her after yesterday's shot (or a good attorney when she commits matricide) (or a decent inheritance when she gets off the charges).
