Working in Germany

Saturday, June 28th, 2008

I’ve been amazingly busy these past few weeks with work.   I just got home from a week of training and workshops with my teams in Sydney.  And during it all there were loads of late nights with plenty of drinking.   So it’s nice to be home for the weekend to get some rest.   The big news is that later this year when we are doing our SAP upgrade I will be doing the user testing in our office in Germany.   It looks like I could be over there anywhere from 2 to 8 weeks!  It will be nice to see Germany again.  I have so many nice memories from my previous trips there.   I will be based in a city near Frankfurt from late in September.

A New Telly!

Tuesday, June 17th, 2008

The big telly has arrived!   I ended up buying the Panasonic 50″ plasma.  It’s not the best telly on the shelves right now but it’s much better than my 12 year TV…  and really cheap too!   But the big surprise came when I turned it on.  It tuned itself in and now I with the digital and HD channels I have more channels than before.  I was about to get Foxtel (cable TV) put on, but some of the shows I like are actually on the new channels.   And the reception is much much better than before.   I’m pretty happy with the new addition to the Loft.   Now if only I can stop myself from watching so much TV.

Sick in Bed

Sunday, June 8th, 2008

I camer home from Sydney early this week with a rotten head cold.   After some problems with the Qantas planes on Thursday I finally got home to Melbourne and could go to bed.   I spent Friday in bed and then on Saturday I had to get out.   Staying in bed drives me crazy!   So I have been looking at buying a new telly for a while now.   So at the Myer sale yesterday I ordered myself a bright shiny new telly (not the one above).   It arrives on Wednesday so I’ll show you what I bought then.  But I can tell you…  I got a REALLY good deal!  And now I’m going back to bed.

Shot of the Week

Sunday, June 1st, 2008

Okay..  it’s probably not the best shot from the shoot but I kinda like it.   I was busy shooting last weekend so I’ve had a break this week to catch up on some editing.   And then I have to load up all the new stuff to the Private Room.
In the meantime work is keeping me pretty busy.  I’m heading to Sydney again this week to catch up with the rest of my team.  Then it’s back home again to enjoy the Queen’s Birthday long weekend.
