Sunday. First day back at work at the lodge. Had lunch and watched some TV. As part of my new healthy routine, I did some exercise later. Did laundry. Went on the internet. Went to Michelle’s birthday party. It was fancy dress but I didn’t have anything, so I was given a plastic pirate’s hat when I arrived.
Monday. I slept in! Too much to drink last night apparently. I wouldn’t mind, except that I only had four drinks! Luckily it didn’t matter too much because we’re not that busy. Spent that afternoon sorting through all the stuff I left here over May. Gonna have a big parcel to send home! Had supper, watched TV, exercised.
Tuesday. Worked a couple of hours, then went for a walk to Taranaki Lookout because it was a gorgeous day. Couldn’t see Taranaki when I got there though, because there was a big cloud covering it. Had lunch, watched TV, exercised, supper, more TV. And texted Mum.
Wednesday. Work. Lunch. Internet. Nesta emailed and Charlotte sent me a Facebook message. Exercise. TV. Supper. Straightened my hair. Read the newspaper. TV.
Thursday. Work. The new girl Paulina arrived today. She’s from Chile, she’s 27, really friendly, and really looking forward to skiing. Exercised. Went to the shop with Paulina. Watched TV. Went to a beach party at The Station Cafe. I wore my sarong over my jeans, my bikini top, a halter-top, sunglasses, and my shell earrings. Lost my sarong. Not that it matters – I think that was the first time I’ve worn it in five years!
Friday. Work. Lunch. Did some puzzles. Watched TV. Generally vegged out!
Saturday. Work. Lunch. Watched the news: bad floods in the UK I see. Mardi Gras in Ohakune tonight. Cy and Rick were running a shuttle bus service to and from, and I was manning the phone from 5pm to 10pm. Didn’t have many calls to answer, but got paid $50 for my time. Got a text from Mum reminding me about Father’s Day tomorrow.
Sunday. Paulina’s first day of work. But too much for one person, so she learnt how to clean the motels, and I did the lodge. Lunch. Checked emails using a card that had a few minutes left on it. Watched TV. Did laundry. Tried phoning Dad but no reply, so texted him instead.
Monday. Work. Lunch. Did some puzzles. Went on the Taranaki Lookout walk with Paulina. Had a quick snack and did some more puzzles. Got Tuesday and Wednesday off, so I’m trying to save jobs for then!
