A bit of a loss today as far as study for the exam is concerned. One of my HP computers (with stock market data on it) failed when I turned it on and as it is still under warranty I started the day lugging a heavy computer to Parramatta. I spent most of this week's budget allowance on fish and salad (which I am becoming fond of). This leaves me with $4 to cover the weekend - $2.50 of which will get me to Sydney tomorrow morning so I know exactly where the examination venue is. (I have food, coffee and cola to keep me going) :-)
I spent further time clearing up the muddle this townhouse is in. Many items are sitting in the backyard and I have arranged with Penrith City Council's contractors for them to pick all this garbage up on April 19th. I have to move everything to the kerbside on the evening of April 18th - which is the date of my next appointment for ultrasound.
An agency mentioned yesterday phoned and said the vacancy they mentioned had been withdrawn as the occupant had decided to "stay on". They sometimes say this sort of thing to avoid hints of rejection :-)
Nothing came of other contract opportunity suggestions. I will suss out the exam venue tomorrow morning and on return get stuck into the study giving me 3 and a half days before the exam on April 4th.
I'm now switching this device off and going to bed !
