Easter Long Weekend

It's been a weird weekend for me... and a wired one too.  I've been unable to sleep over the last few nights; and it's because of the full moon; and the lunar eclipse.  So, I've been getting to sleep around 2am... not a good time to fall asleep.

But my sleeping patterns will work themselves out soon as we move into Winter; as this time of year has always been a bit weird for me.  Yeah, I always lose a bit of sleep in Autumn; and during the change in seasons and there's never a good reason for it.

Yesterday, I was out and about at Thorneside having lunch with my friends there, cooking a stir-fry for them all.  It was great to catch up with them; and even provided a cheesy corn-relish dip... very nice. All of it went down well with everyone - even Will who is allergic to most things.  
It was supposed to have rained over the weekend, but the weather turned out to be sunny and warm - which was perfect.  It was an exhausting day and I arrived home after the sun went down; after dropping Will at the Eight Mile Plains Bus Station and dropping in on Mum and Dad too... it was a very busy day, and I just wanted to chill out for a bit; you know?  When I got home I put on a dvd of 'That 70's Show' and escaped reality for 2 hours.  It was nice to enjoy a fantasy for a while.

Anyway, I woke up this morning, looked outside and around my bedroom and knew it was time to get rid of some of my junk in this room... so the first thing I wanted out of my room was my old sewing machine.  But that thing weighs 75kg!  Way too heavy for me to carry down a flight of stairs; so I've asked Dad to help me take it to the back of the unit complex to be tossed out... I'll keep the step as it's decorative and the bits to use in an art piece and I'll have more room in my bedroom.  As for the chair in the room?  Well, I'll see what I can do with it, I might remove it and put a table in its place - one that's at Mum and Dad's place right now I really need to work on - and then I'll bring it home where it belongs.

I have a few other things to get rid of, a large painting to work on for the bedroom and really make it tidier than it has been... yes, this room has been neglected over the last year.  I have been meaning to clean it out but it's not getting too bad, just ignored.  However the home-office isn't looking much better than it did from the last time I worked on it.  Yep, still a junk room.  And yes, it does need working on... serious work on it, more than just one day's lot of work.

Well, that's been my weekend.  I've been busy, unable to sleep and trying my best to work out my house - again! - and kind of succeeding with it.  So, how has your weekend been?  Until my next post, take care, stay safe and remember, I'm always here.
