I am at a public computer. I never thought I'd see the day... I am five minutes from my house, yet I have paid to use the internet in a public environment. There is a reason for this... You know that new computer I was talking about the other day? Well, it went kaput very emphatically. After owning it for only three days, we had to take it back to the shop, where they have had it since Thursday, and we still have no news on it's recovery.
Aidan has gone back to Canberra now, and I won't see him again until Australia Day weekend - 26th-28th January. I'm all alone and by myself, and only working a few days a week, and so bored and lonely! I know Aidan misses me too, but at least he's being kept very busy. The time will fly for him, he won't even notice the three weeks go by, I'm sure! I, however, have very little to do besides trying to keep myself fit and healthy. (Not easy, immediately after Christmas, as I'm sure you're aware!)
I took my scooter to the mechanic this morning to try and get the speedometer fixed... they need to order a part, it could be a week or more until it's there, so scooter remains out of action for the moment. Which is a shame, because Aidan's mum has invited me down there for a day or two next week, and I'll have to take the train and get her to pick me up from the station if I go. At least I can read on the train, I'd hate to try reading while riding the scooter!!
I don't have much time left on this thing, so I'll do a quick recap of the rest of Christmas/New Year:
Aidan's parents shouted us a night at a beautiful golf club/resort down in Cape Shank the day after Boxing Day, so that was lovely. So nice to have a night away from home, with nobody else, and no cooking or cleaning or anything to bother about. Just time for the two of us.
New Years Eve, we piked out - stayed at home and were in bed by 10pm. That's fine, no big deal. New Years Day I don't even remember what we did... probably stayed at home...
A few days after that, we went back to Aidan's cousin's place for his birthday party, it was fun but rather overshadowed by the fact that Aidan may not see them again for a very long time.
Anywho, my time on this cursed public computer is just about to run out, so off I go. I hope to be able to get back online at home soon!!!
