Things to do when you are bored – Day 24

I’m back at work, and still busy with checking materials for the auditors. My right ankle is in pain so I was limping. I’m not sure what happened, probably due to all the jumping up and down to paint the ceiling the day before. Then after work I did the following :

1. Went to Surrey Hills to pain the bedroom wall. I manage to put one coat on the master bedroom and only half of the second before it was dark.

2. Setup skype and have a chat with my son.

3. Checking whether I had the materials for the light Saber. I think I’m still missing the frosted pipe.

Things to do when you are bored – Day 21

Last day of work before the weekend, finished most of the scheduling and checking on the documents for auditors. Then I did the following :

1. Went to Surrey Hills to continue patching some imperfections on the walls, sanding back some places that I had patched.

2. Ironing the bed sheet while watching “Iceman 2, the time traveler”. It was a continuation story from Iceman about 4 Ming dynasty warriors who are trapped and frozen in time. And now they can go back home in the past, one would like to save his village, the other would like to take over the world. Not as good as the first one, but still good for a quick movie kick.

Then I went to bed at about 1 AM.
