Thursday 12 February 2015 was a work day and a school day. The routine was a bit different today.
1 of 12 – When I woke up to go for a walk, I had a guest waiting for me in the kitchen.
2 of 12 – I’m using my morning walks to work my way through my Chris Isaak collection.
3 of 12 – Juniordwarf and I had to catch the bus today because Slabs wasn’t going in to work until later. It was packed, and the only free seats were right up the back. We normally only sit up the back on the way home, so this was a change of routine for us.
4 of 12 – On the way in to town, Juniordwarf wanted to look at the photos on my phone. He enjoys making photo collages.
5 of 12 – I ordered a new phone on Tuesday to replace my well-loved but failing fast 4 year old iPhone 4. The scheduled delivery time was “before 12.00 Thursday”. While I was walking to work I checked the tracking update on my (old) phone, which said an hour earlier that the package was “with courier for delivery”. Then I started thinking the courier might have already been to work when I hadn’t been there and I’d missed them. I got to work and the courier was at the security desk – I saw the company’s logo on the back of his shirt and went straight over to him and asked if he was looking for me. Yes he was! Excellent service and on-time delivery. Gotta be happy with that.
6 of 12 – When demolition and construction collide. They are still smashing up the deep footings from the Print Building (RIP), they’ve built a retaining wall along Parliament Lane and they’ve bored some piles and concreted them. They’re doing some reinforcement work around the walls that are holding up Salamanca Place.
7 of 12 – CARE Australia gave my blog a plug on Twitter for my Walk in Her Shoes journey.
8 of 12 – Cherry picker in St David’s Park. Not exactly sure what they were doing.
9 of 12 – I finally unpacked the box.
10 of 12 – Slabs had to work late, so he brought Juniordwarf to my work for an hour or so, then he and I went out and had dinner together.
11 of 12 – The construction works on Murray Street for a ramp into the Parliament Square site.
12 of 12 – My new phone is finally set up, with all the apps in order and in its shiny new case because I have a habit of dropping these things. So why is it that there is always one speck of dust left when you try to put a screen protector on a phone?
