Day Twenty-Five - 30 day meme

Day 25 – your day, in great detail
Oh dear, what a day for this to come up. This may be a little embarrassing.
OK, it’s a Saturday morning. I was awoken by my phone ringing at 9:30 (yes, I was having a very nice sleep-in). It was work asking if I was available for a nightshift tonight, which I was.  I get all the details and get out of bed and make my way to the kitchen where I pop the kettle on. Off to the loo and then the bathroom to brush the fuzzies away.
Coffee in hand, I plonk myself down at the computer to check my mail and facebook :) I contemplate getting dressed, then decided that I would watch the finale of Project Runway season 8 first - it was getting annoying not being able to use my Google homepage for fear E! News would announce the winner. Settle down on my bed with coffee and raisin toast yummo!
Grrrrrr at who won - wasn’t my pick but I won’t share and spoil it. I’m usually pretty good at picking the winner. I picked season 7’s winner in the first episode!
Finally, I get out of my PJ’s and my body gets that nice hot shower. I save time by cleaning the shower while I’m in it - well, seriously, no one here else does it. Clothes on, kettle back on, stack the dishwasher and hit start on the washing machine. Coffee back in hand and butt back at computer where I busy myself “farming” and “fishing” - ok I was on facebook again! 
Washing machine finishes it’s first of many loads, it’s raining so into the dryer the load goes.  Next load in the machine, make snacks for work - sandwich, tub of yoghurt and some assorted nuts - and store in fridge.
Christian’s friends turn up to stay over for the night and I head off to have a nap so I will be alert to work nightshift zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz…………..
Wake up - something’s not right. Check the time - clock is blank, hang on.... TV is off?? What’s going on??? It’s still raining and the power is out. Crap, what time is it??? Get out of bed to check clock in the kitchen - 5:30PM. Darn it, I really wanted to sleep until 7:00PM. Find technology obsessed family wandering around like lost puppies.
Christian and friends head off to the supermarket to buy crap food for watching movies later - I’m hoping the power comes back on for them. Use iPhone to check facebook - honestly, just to see if anyone else is without power. Whewwww, it’s not just us. Boil water on stove in a saucepan and make coffee :) Watch Jacob amuse himself in the rain - yes, I got it on video, will post it when I finish this. Post smart arsed status on facebook via iPhone - “Looks like take away for dinner tonight. No power - no cooking” and the house lights up like a Christmas tree. Guess the powers back.
Phone call from work, my shift is cancelled - thank goodness I didn’t get to sleep until 7:00PM, I’d be up all night! Organise dinner by picking up the phone and calling pizza place, send Joshua and Jeff to pick up dinner. Kids devour pizza like they have never seen it before. Clean up/throw out empty boxes and plonk myself back down at the computer to blog. See this topic for the 30 day meme, oh crap!
