so, I have had a very full day.

not long after my last post in this thread I went home for my healthy lunch. 20 minutes into my lunch break I was called by a colleague who let me know one of the houses I manage (I'm a property manager) had burnt down...

so I cut my lunch short to go and investigate. they were still putting it out when I got there. then I had the pleasure of informing the owner, only for him to go really quiet and say "but it's not insured..." I can only imagine the sinking feeling in his stomach. Not only will they get nothing for the house, but they have to pay to have it demolished too...

so dealing with that is how I spent the rest of my day.

And now tonight I was feeding my fur babies before going to bed and I felt/heard this thumping noise, shaking the windows, walls and stuff. Figured it was a plane that I could feel but couldn't hear- if that makes sense. Then I felt it again. Turns out Tamworth has had its first earthquake in almost 50 years! and we had 2 of them!

now I'm too excited to sleep!

What a start to the weekend!

OMG I can't even begin to imagine 1) being told my house had burned down and 2) trying to get my head around that there was no insurance

(after getting my ridiculous renewal for insurance I understand why some people will risk it, I wouldn't, but why some would not pay)

And earthquakes are scary business

I checked the local news about half an hour ago - head line 1 - woman and child escape from burning house in kootingal. Headline 2 - 3.9 earthquake felt Tamworth/Gunnedah.

Oh dear...

I could live and learn by this.

After getting kicked out of the pub at a work do (hey, it was the fun police) they were pinging us one by one, I have a theory that they only had one taxi going and he kept coming back after they kicked each person out, anyway, I digress, I should keep a $50 after abusing the taxi driver because the EFTPOS terminal wasn't working, only to realize the next day it was because I was putting in the wrong account type (i'd had a few ok).
But yeah, I reckon the taxi just kept coming back for the fares when they'd kicked each person out

it wasn't scary, the first one had me thinking I had an inner ear infection our something rofl! the next one I had to wake dh up to see if he could feel it too, he told me I was crazy, but then I saw it was all over FB.

Should we do a twitter name swap and follow each other?
