    So happy this semester is over. Between a crazy project at work and school, I am worn the hell down. This weekend I am celebrating with steak!!

    Also soo happy it is coming up to agility/competition season (dog stuff). Got a bunch of trials lined up...and also going to try my boys at herding!!

    Woohoo! I definitely get that feeling. I'm excited to get back to competing with Archer after the wedding.

    We thought about it but he gets too excited and then I'd be worried about him the whole time. But I'm planning on signing him up for a Barn Hunt trial and a FASTcat when we get back from our honeymoon.

    Finally getting some almost spring like weather, meaning I'm sitting on a bus right now with my bike on the rack up front, and I'll bike home tonight. I'd hoped to be starting this by late March instead of late April, but at least it is finally biking season for me.

    And happy to hear end of term and dog events started related happies -- more confirmation that the season is finally changing!

    My Deceased Estates class for tomorrow morning was cancelled. Couldn't have been timelier. Proper weekend lie-in, here I come ^_^

    The season is definitely changing here in the southern hemisphere too. Hopefully it'll bring some rain. And a few more surprise winter lie-ins.

    I'm refusing to go outside unless it's a minimum 10 degrees. Currently, it's 8c.

    Not. Good. Enough.

    Several things:

    • I just found a different online ligerie store to the one I've mentioned here before. Not only does this one have a corset section, but they actually take it seriously. A very rare alternative fashion find in this country.
    • My little Jackshund, Nicki (the mother of Nani who passed away a week ago), has a paw injury that keeps playing up. I bought her some puppy stairs, feeling very skeptical of whether she would use them. She does! And the memory foam retains little pawprints for a few minutes. It's the cutest damn thing.
    • Today's just been so perfectly balanced. Been alternating between studying for my upcoming exam and catching up on some Emmerdale episodes. I love order and routine.
    • Rain!
    • What Loopy said.

    I got to marry the love of my life yesterday. It was absolutely magical. Everything was better than I had ever dreamed.

    Sorry to double post, but I have to tell everyone how relieved I am that my guinea pig has come round from her operation!

    She had her operation last night, and they found her ovaries were very abnormal: large, filled with fluid and with the consistency of tissue paper. Had they ruptured inside her, she would have died. The operation was complex but mostly successful. Missy has made it through the night and is now up and awake. Her wound looks clean and she can walk, though she has chosen to stay in bed today. I had her out and she asked for cuddles, gave me a kiss and took her medicine like a good girl. She is eating and pooping normally as well, which is important for a piggy.

    Fingers crossed she continues to recover well!

    It rained all night long, and still raining now! The slow gentle rain that actually has time to soak in rather than just run away! We NEEDED it

    So apparently someone at my wife's work stuck her head around the office door to ask if anyone was interested in a swap for an extra large man... "No thanks. I have one!"

    (There is a table in a little used room where people will drop off things that they are getting rid of before donating them, there were new shirts pants etc still with tags.)

    I compiled an entire Liquidation & Distribution Account by hand today. Old school. It feels like quite a feat since I actually know (and care) zilch about accountancy. Hopefully I'll be able to do this in limited real-time next week for the exam.
