Taking a day off Friday

I decided to take a day off today because I need to have a long undisturbed sleep. These past few weeks since I started working as a contract role for AnsaldoSTS, I've been forcing myself to wake up at 5AM every morning without fail. Why? Because the distant to my workplace is about an hour ride from Rockingham. I would leave the house at 6AM just so I could reach the office at 7AM and start working till 430PM. Besides, I like the idea of coming home early and beat the traffic jam. But last night was taking its toll when I just felt so exhausted. I was literally 'brain-dead' from officework!!

It's so peaceful and quiet with the kids still at school and my aunt at work. I have the whole house to myself..well..not quite..I have the dog with me, a pure breed Yorkshire Terrier and her name is Nulla. She's a babe but can be a 'b#@&' when something or someone pissed her off, like the neighbour's dog barking incessantly. Gawsh!!!

It's already past noon and I thought I might just cooked up something simple, so I ended up chopping few pieces of cauliflowers, pour in some fresh milk and lots of grated cheddar cheese. Pop into the oven for 15 minutes and my lunch is ready. It may not looked presentable but I couldn't be bothered making anything fancy. Bon appetit.

Pimp My Ride

Exactly 3 days from now, I'll be cruising my very own Aurora Blue Ford. I can't wait to grip my hands firmly on the steering wheel, push the gas pedal to get the right speed and drive past the foreshore with a big grin on my face. 

No more rushing to get to the train station or run towards the bus stop just so you'll be on time, otherwise it's another agonizing 20 minutes before your next bus ride. With winter already causing so much drama in my life, I exhale in relief knowing that one burden will be off my shoulders in days to come.

Just look at her, isn't she just amazingly 'blue-tiful' *eyes glinting with admiration*
