So…I have a new blog?

February 1st, 2012

Its been a couple of weeks since I blogged. Now I have 2 blogs! I have this one which I will try to update at least once a week, and my newest addition which I will try to update 4 or 5 times a week. Its a photo blog its at http://blog.andrewf8797.com/pic

So I had a week off work? That was nice. Went the beach and the beach and the zoo! Can you believe Hamilton Zoo doesn’t have an elephant there? I was shocked and appalled. But it was an awesome week off. Definatly recharged the batteries.

Then I went back to work for the weekend, for Raggamuffin. It sucked. Was so dead, well not dead, but not busy either. Not even one big rush. Shocking.

Started talking to an old friend again too. I kinda missed him just being there to talk to, when he texts back anyway lol.

My gaming website is starting to get people using it too! http://www.fairypuff.com – Go visit! Its got some pretty cool games on.

So its the New Year

January 3rd, 2012

Christmas was fun. Got presents, not too many, but a few really great ones. I got a PS3, a pounamu, a new scent (Usher) a Taylor Lautner calendar, and a digital photo frame. Also got a new keyboard and some chocolate and some socks. But it isn’t Christmas without socks lol.

New Year was ok. Coulda been better.

So just sitting here eating truffles (Thanks Natalie Hill) watching some Smallville. Its been a while since we watched it properly, which is hardly surprising considering my sister now lives in her room with her xbox on her new tv.

So my Christmas period was pretty much Christmas eve and Christmas day, as i spent every other day in work. Worked New Year too, had the 2nd and 3rd of January off, and that’s it really. I don’t know how to get into the habit of blogging properly lol. I try to do it more than I do, and it never really seems to work. So I don’t actually know why I’m blogging right now lol. But I am,

So its nearly Christmas.

December 18th, 2011

Figured Id do another one of these. Not much has happened lately. Been working, then chilling, then working then drinking. Pretty much my whole life right there haha. Could be worse, I could be drinking more than I am.

Finally Jack has moved over. This is amazing. Hes been here for 2 months, and Its like we were never without him. Nan is here too. I think the most depressing day of my life will be when she goes back to the UK, and Jack stays. Not looking forward to that.

On the plus side, since he has been here so long, his stuff has all arrived now too. So I have a couch in the office and about 10 new xbox games 🙂 Not that Im glad his stuff is here because I can use it but because it means his stuff is here so I can use it lol.

Works been kind of fun. I have a couple of little things I want to do there, so Im working on getting them done. I still enjoy my job so much. And the fact that Im not running every night shift a week is nice. Its good to just be support on shifts now.

Just downloaded the youtube app on my xbox. Gonna watch some videos and see what its like. Then bed me thinks. I need to plan to finish my christmas shopping, which will have to be done soon, as my next day off isnt untill Christmas Eve!

August 29th, 2011

Needless to say frustrating isn’t even the word. She is like child with a new toy. She is spelling everything phonetically and is giggling like a school girl. I love you mummy!!

What an awesome day!

August 24th, 2011

So I decided that I need to use my blog more often. It helps that I can blog on my pc, my iphone and on my touchpad lol.

Iv finally started using using my website, and I even have another website now, which I’m going to use for a games website. www.fairypuff.com if anyone is interested. Its WordPress based, but I am finally starting to get it to do what I want it to do haha.

Apart from that, had some awesome days off. Back to work tomorrow. Good times 🙂

Went out for lunch today too. Chilled out with Masi. Played with Esther. Just chillaxing in the garden with them too. Awesomeness, even more so considering how amazing the weather was for z winters day lol.

So iv been thinking.

May 1st, 2011

Maybe if I posted a blog once a day on my breaks, I could get into the habit of doing it more often. I mean iv already got the app for it on my iphone and my blog is iOS compatable, so I can post whenever and wherever I am.

I just dont find that much to sit there and write about, except when im trying to think of what to write and end up rambling. Kinda like this one really.

So I will just write a few more words and ill feel better about myself and actually use this blog to its full potential. Work isnt so bad today.

Its a little quiet, but I think we all need it to be lol. The last 2 weeks have been hectic, like actually so busy. Need a nice few days off me thinks. Maybe a week off. That would be awesome.

Actually, maybe even a holiday? I could do with a nice little holiday. Dont know where yet, maybe even to the South Island? Apparently theres some stuff down there. Queensland is good I hear.

And my back is still sore. I must have twisted it last week some time, but it doesnt hurt as much now, so Im assuming its on the mend. Keeping me drugged up helps lol, so I dont feel as much pain in general haha.

Work time 😛

April 29th, 2011

I finally started doing something with my website. Up to now I only have a blog and a game on it. Its not a new game by any means but I enjoyed playing it alot a few years back so I put it on there and I must say it brought back some awesome memories.

Also Iv statyed an ambitious project to rewrite the game and make another version of it. Ive started it already but im not telling anyone where it is yet, because I want to actually prove to myself that I can do it.

Its not going to a quick change either, its actually going to take me a few months. Theres just so much code to go through. But I started it, and I really want to finish it. Im quite excitd to see the end result. I can picture it in my head but, fingers are still crossed.

Back to work for now. Why do I always get the urge to blog when im in work on a break, when I have lots to write but not enough time!!!  Like actually. I always want to blog when I never have time. Now Im gonna be a few seconds late back of my break haha
