It’s late on Friday night as I write this. I’ve been frantically powering through to catch up on work; good thing I really like what I do, or the resentment factor would be through the roof. I’ve been back from Sydney for two days and I haven’t had a day off since the weekend before last, so quite frankly, I’m drained.
I still have at least one Sydney recap post in me … I’m just not too sure when I’ll get around to it. This weekend will involve catching up on sleep, housework, and most likely a good few hours of mega transcription for a feature I’m writing. The insurance branches aren’t open on the weekends, so that’ll have to wait til Monday. I do have receipts for almost everything (past experience has taught me to keep documentation, serial numbers etc) and photos of most of the others, so insurance should cover it minus the excess (which I think is $750).
