A good year – 2018 – day 147

A day at home. Time to catch up on things.   After breakfast, I moved my office outside under the back pergola and moved the budgies there as well.  The first order of business was to sort out the SQL training. After a bit of work had the practice tables set up and worked my … Continue reading A good year – 2018 – day 147

A good year – 2018 – day 146

Yay. Saturday. HAPPY SABBATH!! Up early to get the early train to Beenleigh. Walked the 35 minutes to Rothwell Station, and it was chilly. Arrived at Rothwell and caught the train. The 50-minute ride into the city went quite fast as I battled the games on my phone. Some wins and some losses. At Central … Continue reading A good year – 2018 – day 146

A good year – 2018 – day 145

Last day of the working week.   The day started off as usual. Then a bit of a commotion at work.  Investigation showed it was an evacuation drill. Poorly triggered by the security. I took up my post and grabbed the sign. Once the group was off the floor, via the fire stairs, [all 19 … Continue reading A good year – 2018 – day 145

A good year – 2018 – day 143

A day of remorse… After the proceedings the day before, it had finally sunk in as to the impact my actions had been making. So, after some soul searching I signed myself to a better way forward. I completed the tasks for work and as I was already at home, had my lunchtime in the … Continue reading A good year – 2018 – day 143

A good year – 2018 – day 139

Rose really early again! Got ready and then walked the 3.4 km in 39 minutes to Rothwell Station. The train is only going to Bowen Hills? Huh! Check of the Translink app, and no trains between Albion on the Caboolture line; Bowen Hills for the Airport, Ferny Grove and Redcliffe lines; Corinda for the Ipswich … Continue reading A good year – 2018 – day 139

A good year – 2018 – day 136

Woke early and had breakfast then went back to bed. Slept till 7.00am and felt on top of the world, except the slight stuffiness in my nose.  Commenced work from home, shortly after doing the school drop-off. Got stuck into the form I was building using Nintex and started to add the extra information, having improved … Continue reading A good year – 2018 – day 136

A good year – 2018 – day 135

That's 230 days to go, but who is counting? Woke with a clear head for the first time in days. Seems I have got over the cold! Went to work, and arrival in the warmth. A slight breeze was blowing, making it feel cooler. Worked my way through the day with various tasks, form building, data … Continue reading A good year – 2018 – day 135

A good year – 2018 – day 134

Started the day quite relaxed, even though I was up at 3.30 am, and was able to walk out the door early. Caught the bus and then the train and caught up on much-needed sleep. Arrived at work and my WLB was already there, having caught the earlier train. Some mornings, I wish I could … Continue reading A good year – 2018 – day 134

A good year – 2018 – day 132

The day started early as I rose to get ready for a day going to Church and other activities. This time I decided and agreed with my wife to take the car for the day. So after breakfast, I hit the road, albeit about 20 minutes later than anticipated. I drove to my work lunch … Continue reading A good year – 2018 – day 132

A good year – 2018 – day 128

A workday. A wet day.  A pretty miserable day all round. A chance to deal with some new ideas including training. My lunch buddy and I could not even go for our customary lunchtime walk as it was too wet, so we made arrangements to invite staff for the next day. After work walked with … Continue reading A good year – 2018 – day 128
