So the big reveal today was that my office will be merging with another from Melbourne! The big boss was looking at succession planning and I think he didn’t want to see his name being erased from ‘public’ if another accounting firm took over when he wanted to slow down and eventually retire, so he decided to merge his company with that of a financial planning company. This way, we’re kinda in a partnership, under a group of companies and our company name can live on. 1st Oct will bring in bigger and bigger things!!
Our EOFY drinks were held at The Avenue, just a short distance away from the station and we had some nibbles to go with it. Most of the nibbles were yum and the catering was for larger numbers so we all got seconds or thirds (or fourths) if we wanted.
Very nervous for Saturday. I’m forgetting all the dance moves!
Thank you to my new follower! Starting this weekend off on a good note.
Hope you all have a good one!

I found out some big news and changes that are going to be happening around the office!
There was a Board of Directors meeting that went for two hours and many things were discussed. The first thing to let slip was a change in office layout and some people have to shift cubicles. I think the 2IC let that slip as a diversion for the bigger stuff.
Part of the office layout change is a slight shift in structure as to who the non-junior/not quite senior accountants report to. This was not the biggest news!
I was out to lunch with one of the directors (I think he was missing his junior accountant who is away for a week in Hawaii with her new hubby) and he decided to let me in on the big news. A certain Mr Smith has been coming to the office and has held many meetings in his awful pinstripe suit (I get that some people can carry off pinstripes - he cannot). I found out who Mr Smith really is and why he’s been coming in all the way from Melb.
The big reveal is tomorrow, so I won’t spoil it for now. We’re finally having our EOFY party tomorrow. Drinks all round!
I love being in the know and knowing things so that as it unfolds, I can sit back and watch. I can keep a secret.

I got two lots of froyo today!!
I decided to satisfy my craving and get a mini tub before belly dance class and it was great. I got a little cold soon after the consumption of said froyo but that was fixed with some dancing.
The when Twin showed up for her session, she walked in with another tub - meant for me! She had already started in on the swirled tip, but let me eat the lion share of it. Which was handy as I had heated up from the rehearsal.
We’re performing on Saturday. Eek! Looks like I am doing two dances…
I foresee lots of lunchtime practices.

I saw the pre-air pilot for The Flash. It was pretty good. But all I could think of when I saw the guy playing Barry Allen (AKA The Flash) was…hey…that’s the evil Warbler (Sebastian) from Glee! The next thought was, his acting seems to have gotten better!
Also, the guy playing Detective West - yet another cop role! It was nice to see Danielle Panabaker in something new (I still remember her from Sky High). When Starling City was mentioned and a certain someone with incredible abs made a cameo…I think i need to finish watching season 2 of Arrow.
Still more incredible tv to debut and I can’t wait!
Hope Monday was relatively painless!

Thank you to my new follower!
I wasn’t feeling that great this morning (getting up at 5:30am - who does?) and I actually ended calling in sick to work…admittedly I was going to do it closer to 8:30 (my starting time), but I had fallen back asleep after my alarm went off so I didn’t call until almost 9am when I woke up again.
I do feel a little guilty that I took a sickie, but Twin said that I was taking a mental health day and that I probably needed it.
I was supposed to meet up with Struggling Artist this afternoon in Chatswood and after a few texts we changed the time and date to later this afternoon in the city (don’t really want to hang out in a suburb where I could get caught). I received my artwork (that I purchased from Struggling Artist’s first solo show) and it was all bubble wrapped and bound it brown paper and string. Also came with a certificate of authenticity. That was pretty cool.
I would have posted up a picture but I re-wrapped it in the bubble wrap after I showed Twin when I got home and I don’t feel like taking the wrapping apart again.
Now….where to hang my first piece of purchased art?
