End of assignments relief

Hello, hello! I finally have a little time to update on what's been going on now that I have completed all of my uni assignments! The last one was handed in today, so now all I have to do is get through 2 weeks of swat vac, 5 exams (yes, that's right, I'm doing four subjects this semester . . . :D) and I can have a couple of days off before I go back to work! I will be undertaking enrolment jobs in the Humanities Faculty again this year, but in the middle of the year because they've decided that mid-year intake is good and they need more staff to cope with it. But hey, it pays well :D

Got news last night that my step-cousin and his fiancee have just had a baby but I don't know the flavour yet. My aunt is due to have her first any time now and my friends Stu and Eb just had their first as well on May 24th (just found out today). Congratulations to everyone! Something tells me that there was baby dust in the air back in August . . . too bad it wasn't headed our way *sigh* I'm being the wife from hell (according to Charlie ;D) and encouraging him to quit smoking to see if that will help our babymaking efforts. So far he was off the cigs for three days and was so horrible that we decided he would go back on them! It's not going to be as easy as we suspected. At least I'm finished smoking (having Charlie quit for even a few days made it easier for me) and I've got to say, I'm not sorry to not be standing out in the cold and RAIN (yes, you read that right!) in order to get a fix.

Been checking in on Craftster to take study breaks and came across a blog called Mason-Dixon Knitting. How did I not know about this before?! Was scrolling through the links on the sidebar there and came across the wonders of YouTube in the form of this Mum, Thane, you'll love it to bits :D I just can't believe that someone would go to that much trouble! Mind you, it IS the Bayeux Tapestry . . .

Well, I'm off to hunter/gatherer some dinner for the cats and us as Charlie will be home from work soon. Well, in another hour or so. But I don't know what we're having, so I'd better go and look. Then I will be veging out this weekend in preparation for studying next week! And the week after! And then doing my exams! You get the idea.

However, I just have to mention that part of the veging out involves going to see Pirates of the Carribean III on Sunday with Tim and his ex wife and their boys because we haven't seen Tim for ages and taking his boys made it acceptable for Charles and I to see a kid's film and now its ended up that we get to meet his ex wife too . . . I'm not quite sure how that happened, but I get to experience Gold Class cinema for the first time! Sad, I know. How long has it been available? Let's not go there, OK? :)

Right, dinner. Before Cujo chews my leg off . . .
