My Mum visited on the weekend. She was staying with family in southern NSW and caught the bus down to Melbourne to go to the Neil Diamond concert. Yes, I went too. Yes, I liked it. My Dad was a big Neil Diamond fan, so I grew up listening to his songs. It was funny seeing all the baby boomers rocking out, especially a guy near us who was going off but kept clapping out of time.
I have done around half of my New York City jigsaw, and most of that I did in one night. I couldn't stop and stayed up way too late doing it. There's something so satisfying about slotting those tiles into place, especially when you pick up a piece and think, "Hmm, I wonder if that bit goes there?" and you try it, and it does!
I got my first monthly pay in my new job today. Wooh! I felt quite rich there for a little while. Now to make it last until next pay day...
I'm off to see The Waifs tomorrow night. Yays! I'm going on my own - my first gig flying solo.
