Re: Fleeting/Random/Thoughts

It's been a while since I logged in here... I've just completed my first 4 weeks at my new job and I'm loving it so far. Long days when you add 80 minutes of commuting to the day, but mentally/emotionally I feel so much better already and I know I made the right choice for me. I've also got some fle...

I'm late to the discussion but yes, all women's clothing in Australia is the same. Nothing is standardised. I usually go on measurements rather than sizing.

Re: Show us your latest purchase - Summer 2019/20

The bag won't actually be going underground with me, it'll sit up in my office... but yeah, they're still not always the cleanest of places as people walk dirt and crap through the building all the time so grey was safer. What I did like about the light one was the light lining, I thought it would m...

Re: Show us your latest purchase - Summer 2019/20

I made use of our health insurance before the year ran out and ordered around $450 worth of contact lenses for Disco and myself, only out of pocket around $140. I also bought myself a backpack for work, as I'll need to be carting a laptop back and forth each day and you just look like a freak swanni...

Re: Show us your latest purchase - Summer 2019/20

The girlfriend must wear a metric shitload of makeup on her face to need 1.2 litres of makeup remover... you literally need about 6 drops of that on a cotton pad. Any more, and you either need to re-asses how much shit you're putting on your face or you're pissing money down the drain.

Re: Fleeting/Random/Thoughts

I hope I get selected, this is the third time I've been called in, wasn't picked the previous two times.

As the trial could go up until 20th December, I rather suspect there will be a lot of people trying to get out of it.

Re: Fleeting/Random/Thoughts

Yeah, I'm pretty excited - the largest project I've worked on for them was under 2 million and this is a 685 million dollar project, so it's a bit of a big deal. The waiting is killing me though, this has been in the works/in negotiation for 4-5 weeks and I'm soooooooo ready.

Re: Fleeting/Random/Thoughts

Back to Mining... been offered a ridiculous (good ridiculous, not bad ridiculous) amount of money to go back and work on a project with them. Verbally offered and accepted, just waiting on paperwork which is taking a stupid amount of time... and nothing is concrete until the papers are signed IMO.

Anxiously awaiting a long overdue employment contract, so I can resign and move on from my current role.

Re: Fleeting/Random/Thoughts

We're safe where we are at the moment, but the ground is so dry and the wind is so bad that it wouldn't take much for things to change - it's an awful time for everyone involved.

A beginners resin kit to have a crack at what I learned in the class at home, and perhaps knock together some neat gifts.

Re: Our Art (visual)

As part of my mental health treatment, I had an assignment to do something I want to do, but it has to involve other people and I can't take anyone I know with me. I signed up for a Resin Art Class.

Yeah, it's nice to sit out on the deck at Sirromet and have a bite to eat and some vino... even Dad likes it there, and he's not really into the winery scene.

Yes/no/sort of.... my family are Brisbane Bayside (Wellington Point area), but one of my close mates moved to Ormeau about a year ago and we were visiting them last Thursday night when that big downpour hit :) They're just near the high school, it's a nice spot there.

Ours is about 13 years old, it's getting a bit noisy these days. I'll flip it on Gumtree as a beer fridge or something.
