Thoughts of a middle aged man…..12 February 2013

To say that I was busy today would be an understatement, I had an IGM and an AGM, plus one of my Presiding Officers stopped in for some advice. On the bright side, along with my bosses, I reached a decision today about one of my problem corporations, it is great to get support from the people you work for, something I have not been accustomed to previously.

Tonight I have had a good chat with a friend from over 30 years ago, someone who I shared a house with back in the late 1970s. Annette and I have not seen each other for at least 15 years and we have a lot of catching up to do. Brian and I now have a destination for our next country drive.

Tomorrow is my day off but no sleep in for me, I have to get my car to K-Mart Tyre and Auto in Port Adelaide by 9.00, as the cover on my petrol tank won’t open. While it is probably just a spring it is a tad inconvenient if I need petrol.

Brian has done all the washing as he is still on holidays, so the rest of tomorrow should be relatively quiet and restful, I hope, one never knows in our house, we could finish up doing anything. One thing I have to  say is that our lives may seem dull and domesticated most of the time, but there really is never a dull moment. Some days I question whether that is a good thing or a bad thing, on balance it is a good thing.

Thursday will be another full on day at the office as I already know what will take up most of my time. I have to prepare meeting notices for a Primary and Secondary IGM, as well as the IGM for a new retirement village, not to mention the minutes for tonight’s AGM.

I am getting tired just thinking about it so I am off to bed. Thank you for reading.

Thoughts of a middle aged man…..25 January 2013

You know sometimes it just does not pay to be nice, to do the right thing. During my lunch break today I went to the ATM to make a withdrawal, as I was getting there a young woman approached from the other direction so I did the gentlemanly thing and stood back so she could go first, a deliberate move which would have been obvious to a blind woman. Did I get an acknowledgement, a thank you, of course not. Women say that men are rude, but there are a lot of rude women out there as well.

I got a lot done at the office today, my phone did not ring until 11.00 which helped greatly, so I was able to clear some of my backlog. Just when I thought things were going smoothly in walks my boss and hands me a new corporation, a 60 unit retirement village, my third such village. This takes me up to nearly 700 lots and around 75 corporations.

We still have our ant problem here at home, the little buggers just keep coming despite the Ant Rid I have left all over the place. Tomorrow we will buy some surface spray and attack them from the outside as I know where they are getting in.

Brian and I have a very busy weekend this long weekend, and Brian has to go to the office for a couple of hours tomorrow which will give me time to do some washing so we can visit the boys and their families tomorrow.

Off to bed now. Thank you for reading.
