Big chicken!!!!!

Alright so I did chicken out walking out onto the glass floor on the CN Tower.

Being the height I am you would think I would not mind heights, but I did find the tower quite unsteady.

It was mostly the sky pod above the main pod. I think it was the size of the pod that got me the most.

As you can see it was quite literary "a pod" with not a lot of headroom for me.

But what a view, it was such a clear day, we could see for miles at that height.

Check out the view we had:

After the tower we had dinner at Wayne Gretzky's resteraunt, took us a while to find it. The restaurant was OK I suppose, I got fish and chips:

Jenn had some sort of fried ravioli:

And Shawn had the '99' Burger:

Also it was the weekend of the Fan Expo, so a lot of wierdos running around, check out the queue waiting to get in:

It has taken me over 6 years to finally get round to going there.

Hopefully I will have the nerve to do this:

We shall see........

Changing furniture: 101

Just goes to prove a point that changing furniture around gives the cats new stuff to explore.

Back to work

Ah well, another long weekend over with and back to work tomorrow (Wednesday).

I've been nearly 2 years on a 4x10 shift pattern.

I mean I like the time off as every weekend is a 3-day one. The downsides are working every Saturday and late 10 hour shifts.

Seeing I have vacation time mapped out until the end of the year I will have to stay on this until then.

Then there is also the question of giving up my 3-day weekends.

Ah well, the perils of work I suppose.........
