🙂 Yesterday I handed in my notice 🙂 🙂 I have to work ’til the end of the year but come January I’m a free woman 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂
So. Here we are again. My house and me. Faced with a whole lot of chaos and a deadline and armed with only 14 hours, of which I plan to sleep through at least 8. I’m going to yet another wedding tomorrow and won’t be home until AFTER my dearest BF arrives. I’ve told him […]
The perfume fiasco didn’t go unnoticed by my dearest DB. We didn’t have enough time to rectify the situation before the wedding and I thought I’d got away without buying one until we were on the boat to England a couple of weeks later. The trouble with ferries is they are equipped with dutyfree shops […]
– or shopping with SD continued- I’ve experimented with perfume even less than with make-up. I hate it when people leave scent trails, unless they’re REALLY good ones, and then I stalk them MWAHAHAHAHAA!!! No. I don’t really stalk people. I’m just really fussy about the ones I would stalk if it was down to […]
– or shopping with Swimming-D – I don’t wear make-up. I was going to add ‘ever’ but that would be lying. I dabbled in it a lot, or rather dabbled in a lot of it, as a toddler, smearing lipstick over my forehead, cheeks and chin while my mother wasn’t looking*, and again as a […]
I don’t much like shopping. Food-shopping is bearable, clothes-shopping generally isn’t, although it is marginally better than shoe-shopping, and a whole lot better than bra-shopping. I tend to avoid it if at all possible. However. Sometimes life strikes, and I get invited somewhere that calls for something other than jeans. It seems life has struck. […]
I have decided to be super organised. Not as organised as I said I would be in October, but still a good sight better than I sometimes am. I have exams in the last week of July. My last ‘block’ (46-50 hours of lessons) is the first week of July. Usually I would finish the […]
Warning: This post contains predjudice and unfair descriptions 😉 When in Germany, party like a German 🙂 The stereotype/predjudice is that the Germans are a very serious people. I’m not sure that that’s true, they’re just incredibly orderly. Even getting drunk and dancing on tables has to be done in an orderly fashion. Where I […]
On Thursday I decided to go to Berlin. Naja, ish. While it is true that I decided to go, it wasn’t entirely my decision. I was invited to a meeting. The sort that it would be silly not to go to. Some of you know why, some don’t. It’s not entirely relevant. The only relevant […]
I managed to speak INTO the microphone for practically the ENTIRE duration of [my parts of] this morning’s theatre skit :). GO ME!!
Some say you have to share bread and wine with people if you want them to remember you.. I reckon making them pancakes comes a pretty close second 🙂
Keeping a group of seven 7-12 year old boys together for 2 hours while changing rooms 12 times (circuit training) is a challenge. Keeping your cool even more so 😉 They are amazingly willing to please, as long as you tell them EXACTLY what you want them to do and why… Ok, so they still […]
Way back when I was small, my grandparents used to take us (my siblings and me) on holiday for a week in summer. When my folks arrived to pick us up, the grandparents could almost be guaranteed to say: “rather a week than a fortnight” and “we’ll think we’ve gone deaf”. As a kid I […]
“40 days, 40 boxes” – Flylady’s idea. I’m not going to be home for 2 of the 7 weeks, so that’s a little tricky, but I think it’s not a bad idea… as long as they’re small boxes!
And that’s before it started… (I’d left it in its box until today, because I was going away for Christmas and didn’t want it to die due to lack of love (and water). It seems it doesn’t need much (of either)… *grins*
