Yesterday, I found myself between jobs. Nothing too dramatic but a long story none the less, and one that I only wish to get into in a few weeks time.

This leads to me to my current situation, which is I now have a full 15 days of leisure time before my next adventure begins. Let me just add that 15 days is possibly the longest amount I have had off since I was in high school er, a few years back.

Once the intitail shock and bewilderment had set in, I began to realise that this was such a blessing in disguise, and the timing couldn’t have been better. We recently got a puppy ( see my first post an insert ‘aah’) and the thought of leaving him alone every day while I went to work has been devastating. I can now spend 2 weeks with the guy helping him to adjust.

Apart from that, I have out together a list of sorts, of things to do during my 2 week ‘staycation’ :

– start a new exercise routine from a Woman’s Health book I bought several months ago, which up until now has been doubling up as a coffee mat
– Get started on my Christmas shopping
– Renew my passport (just incase I’m surprised with a overseas vaycay – hint hint boyfriend)
– Start painting again
– Go to lunch with all my stay at home friends
– Nap. This one has me really excited

Not to get ahead of myself, I feel it may be best to stop right here. I’m off to the gym.

Here I go…

My fingers have been hovering over my keyboard in preparation of writing my first post, since about 9 am. (Don’t tell my boss). This is quite daunting actually – for someone who enjoys nothing more than a good cynical rant, bitch or moan, or to talk about current events, interesting titbits and what not, the thought of doing it in over 14o characters ala Twitter style truly has me stumped.

My name is Kate, this is my blog – it will (hopefully) be an extension of me and my thoughts. Sometimes irrelevant, more than likely fairly annoying, but mostly sarcastic, witty and insulting to more than one individual.

Enjoy.

PS – for my first daily dose of cute, here is a photo of my brand new Boston Terrier puppy, Rupert.
