Enjoying The Time Between Jobs

So yesterday I left the office for the last time at around 2pm and spent a blissful afternoon at home with my bunnies. Henna took her first foray up the stairs :) Sigh, they're growing up so fast ;) Have got some pics, but can't quite work out how to download the damn things on linux (can you tell Varen is a bit of a computer nerd?).

Last night he & I went celebrating at Montecasino for dinner followed by a show, Defending the Caveman.

We ate at Gourmet Garage so he could have his favourite Peanut Butter Burger (it was delish, I'd order it next time!) and I tried their Chicken Satay Burger. But I think the best part of the meal were the Jalepeno Slammers (like mini Chili Poppers). They were divine!!

And then we headed for the show. I'd seen it years ago with the family but Varen had never even heard of it. It was brilliant and Varen thoroughly enjoyed it. I think for me it was even better the 2nd time around because I was now watching it with my boyf and there were so many instances of nodding and pointing and giggling at our shared knowledge of how spot-on the comedy was regarding our own interaction. I'd highly recommend all couples go and see it :)

This morning hasn't all been lazing in bed, although I've definitely been enjoying my first day off (and y last till my trip in November!). I woke up at a reasonable hour while Varen was getting ready for work and did, I admit, read in bed for a while. But then I got up and hit the gym at 9am ... impressive, no?

Since then I haven't done too much aside from finalyl collect my printer from the Canon Warranty Centre.Have yet to actually plug it in, but am desperately hoping that this time it will in fact work as it should :)

@missm - yeah, sad I know ... but I felt guilty having not been the rest of the week and just thought going first thing would be like pulling off a plaster (band-aid) really quickly :) get it over and done with and out of the way!

I can promise it's not where I'll be at 9am tomorrow morning tho!

@mrjones - I'll think about it ... but it's going to end up being more about the time I have than my interest in doing it :)

@tjf - yup, it's fab ... am now thinking I really shoulda taken more than 2 days off between jobs tho!

@tamara - well then get yourself down there girl, it's delish :)
