Not so much with the happy today

Today is day three with nothing to do. Yes, I have plenty of work on, but it's all at stages where I'm waiting for feedback, waiting for approval, waiting for someone else to do the bit that's necessary before I can continue, waiting for .. you get the idea. It's frustrating. I'm bored with surfing the net and reading Build magazine. I did learn that the new henge at Carterton isn't made of stone though. It's made of wood framing covered in cement board, with wire mesh over that and then concrete sprayed on. And it has inbuilt microphones. Hmm..

On the upside, the sheep-care thing looks like it might just happen. This makes me very happy. I've missed working with sheep. I suppose it's a weird passion, but it stems from just enjoying animal husbandry in general, and this will be a nice counterpoint for my desk job, while keeping my hand in, making contacts and getting gear together for when I have my farm. And First will love it!

So yeah, stuff to be happy about, stuff to be sad about.

Saw a guy wearing a bright red Holden jacket this morning. A grown man. The Ford vs Holden debate is stupid. "My inanimate object is better than your inanimate object, and I'm going to label my clothes because my self-esteem and identity is tied in with that idea."
