Got really sick of all this rain. So husband and I went “fakatongan” and “eva eva pe*” around in the mud. Just like everyone else in town.
Needed some new rainy day activities and have been messing around with watercolour paints.
Ran a “practical casework skills” workshop for my co-workers. We spent a day discussing how to write case notes and reports, keep case files, confidentiality and supervision. I was told that “we don’t do case notes because we are fakapikopiko (lazy).” Their words. But I guess it’s good they can self identify where they need to improve!
Realised that I have a very compassionate dog. I was lying down on my bed, not feeling well and Piko licked my feet to try and cheer me up. Gross and cute.
Made my own hummus. It took forever. But it tastes really good.
Have been eaten alive (ok, almost) by mosquitos.
Learnt that our tongan washing machine likes to eat pillows. Hand washing from now on.
Watched a lot of Mad Men and wondered why every single guy in that show cheats on his wife/girlfriend. Surely that didn’t happen to all relationships in the 60s????
Realised I have a naughty dog. He started eating the lounge chair on our landlady’s front porch. She hasn’t noticed so far…
*This means to just kinda wander around. To not really go anywhere in particular. So we just wandered around in the rain as we got cabin fever.
