weekend! voting day!

August 20th, 2010 at 10:52 pm

It's the weekend again. This year seems to be slipping by SO fast. I slept in and it was lovely - I normally wouldn't on a Saturday with loads of things to do, but I seem to be having a patch of bad sleeping nights. Slept for 10 hours last night, but before then hadn't slept in three days. Ahhh. Nice. (Funnily though, with the election campaigns drawing to a close, have heard so much about Tony Abbott 'not sleeping for 36 hours' in the final election day.' Ohhhh. Poor thing!) LOL.

Voting day today. Just found out we can vote at the bottom of our street! Which is great, we can walk and not have to try and find a park. Will do it later today, once the crowds have gone.

Plans for this weekend:
- a screen print.
- laundry
- finally send our tax
- tidying.
- markets

I have to make our place slightly baby proof in the next hour or so. We are having our neice and DF's BIL over for the night. DF's sister is having a girls night with friends. For dinner we're having roast veges, sausages (for the meat eaters) and salad.

Just paid our rates yesterday. $739.42 - cheaper this time because our water bill was separate for the first time. (Water bill was $494).
It's about a hundred dollars more, and everyone is saying not to pay the water bill because apparently Unity Water (the people who have taken over the water distribution for our area) do not read the meters, they just guess. Most of the time. Or so I'm told. But ours is fairly close - they say we use 366 litres a day. Previously it was around 247. A jump, yes, but not as much as some peoples. I put it down to DF's home brewing, and the fact that it is winter and we have longer showers. But, I don't know. Bill is due on 13th September, so we will see how that goes...

So yes, back to voting day. Going to be a very interesting out come I think. Either we have our first (elected by the people) female Prime Minister, or a man who is extremely religious and conservative. Might do well in other countries, but everyone I talk to seems to think that he is not suited. But, I don't know. I think our society is made up of pretty equal parts, so will be interesting to see how this turns out. Eh. I don't really discuss my political views with people other than family... I find that everyone thinks they are right, and a lot of the time if they DONT agree with your choice, they try to change the way you think. Or put you down because you don't take their side. Eh. So yes, I will have adiscussion about politics, but won't disclose my voting preferences. I learnt the first time!
