Time slows down

Well, I'm certainly looking forward to the wedding. Tania and I will be getting married in September and for both of us are finding that time has slown down!

The days are dragging out, and the wedding seems to be soooo far away. I know I can't wait for the wedding. And Tania has also said that she is getting impatient.

Well, not much else to report today. Making slow progress with cleaning up and throwing out all the old junk that I no longer need and will not be taking with me when I move in with Tania.

Damn it's cold

Had to get up early to drop mum's car off at the mechanic. Had ice on the windows which I had to scrape off before I could drive. Gah, not happy. I'm definitely not a cold weather person. No winter ski holiday for me!

Quest success!

It didn't take too long but did involve a bit of driving around. But the slow combustion wood heater has been fixed and Tania's house is warm again.

We ended up driving to Northam since it is closer to Wundowie than Perth or even Midland. We found a glazier who was able to cut and supply the heatproof glass, and a different chimney shop that was able to supply the other parts like the ceramic rope.

Overall, a good day's work.

There is always more to do. I want to go back to her place again today and help her out with a few more things but one of our cars here needs to go in to the mechanic. So I need to be near the house this afternoon when it is ready for collection.

Finding fire

I have been assigned a quest: find a replacement glass for Tania's slow combustion heater. It was broken recently so the house is cold. I was hoping to get it sorted today but I had to drop the car in at the mechanic.

I think that what I will end up doing is getting the research done today to try and track down where to get the glass and ceramic rope today, then pick it up tomorrow...

In other news, I was picked for a random swab for explosives when I went to the airport yesterday. Fairly straightforward, just stand still while they run the wand over me and stick it into their machine.

Didn't think I looked that dangerous...

How excitement!

Through a convoluted process, I started dating a lovely lady about two months ago. In an interesting twist, she asked me out rather than the more common way.

We dated for about six weeks and I knew she was the one. I couldn't bear the thought of not having her by my side. So I proposed to her - and she said yes! Happiest day of my life.

I haven't been able to stop grinning since!

I've lusted after females before and I thought I'd been in love before, but I've never felt like this. It is such a strong emotion. I can hardily contain myself. I feel like I understand now why Tom was jumping on Oprah's couch...  <3

First update in a long time...

Wow, it's been a while since I updated this! So many changes in the last couple of months and been so busy I haven't had time to blog about it. Not that anybody reads this anyway! At the moment I'll have more free time as I've just finished with my prior job. I'm planning to relax and recover and gain some weight back for the next two weeks until the end of the financial year here in Australia. After that I'll need to kick my backside into gear and get to work. I'm engaged!
