So last Friday my probation period at work officially ended. W00t!!! 😀 It’s good to know the hard work and effort was worth it. After all the early starts.. getting up at 6:30am every morning to get in for 8:30am.. being willing to stay late until the job gets done. I’ve completed this hurdle and I think my boss seems happy with things. I’ve also been put on a new project!! I was gonna approach someone to try push for it, but looks like I didn’t have to.. it just sorta landed in my lap. It will be cool to do something different.
I’m feeling more settled here – getting along well with people I think. I went out twice the other week to the pub with work colleagues – and both were quite late ones. It was great. I’ve never really done the going out to the pub after work with the colleagues before.. but I guess it does help the bonding. Even if I don’t really drink much (as I never have), it’s still good fun.
Anyway life otherwise has been pretty busy. Went to dance class last Saturday for the first time in over a month. Wish I could keep it up more regularly, but still it was nice to get moving again. And my back actually felt better the next day.. sore muscles and all. It was a good pain rather than the bad pain I’d been struggling with for the past week and half. Guess I should keep it up. Still need to go see an osteopath though… once the damn health claim gets sorted. Music college has been good – already coming to the end of first term now – its been exhausting! Next week will be the final performance week for my Tues night class. Its gonna be recorded and assessed. Ack! And I gotta get the full score done to hand in for that week too, also for assessment. Then over the christmas break I’ll have my first assignment for musicianship class – a full transcription of an original piece given to us by our tutor. They keep telling us it will be hard. :/
But there is light at the end of the dark tunnel. I’m going away to Germany for a pre-christmas holiday. We’re going to Frankfurt (6 nights) and Cologne (2 nights) to visit the christmas markets (I LOVE the German christmas markets.. totally beats the crappy over-commercialised over-crowded christmas here in London). Also will be catching up with our friends in Frankfurt, eating lots at FrÃ¼hstÃ¼cks and just CHILLING out and relaxing at the saunas (oh the bliss). Can’t wait! I so totally need a holiday.. just been way too stressed lately. Plus we’re staying in a pretty swanky hotel on the last two nights in Cologne too – the Hyatt right on the Rhine river opposite the Cathedral. Nice.Posted in Life | 5 Comments »

Well, I’ve learned something.. Christmas markets? Germany? Never heard of such a thing. But I’m interested to know more.. maybe I’ll Google it? Glad you’re having some time away.. sounds good. We aren’t doing the usual Sydney thing this Christmas, but going to my inlaws place for a few days. My girl and I will take off to Sydney for the Australia Day weekend. I’m hoping we can go to Brisbane after that to catch up with my other sister. Brisbane in January is not my cup of tea though.. erggh! I’m a hot weather sook! 8-/

p.s. Did you know that Merriam-Webster have crowned the word “w00t”, ‘Word of the Year’? Seen as a word made popular by Gamers.. but I notice people have said it on my blog before.. so I follow suit! Sheep I am.. (or can be..)

Maria: Check out my latest post – I have pictures and links to the places I’m visiting. 🙂 Yeh brisbane is possibly a little too hot/humid for my taste in the height of summer.. but if I had to choose btw brisbane weather and current london weather (2 degrees and frosty) – i’d choose brisbane!
tr00b: But of course.. I always have time for my loyal fans lol.
