At the time of writing – well to be more accurate, at the time of thinking about writing, I’m sat here looking at the Blogger window sifting through the rush of the last week. It’s been busy, but not in a bad way. That busy you get when lots of stuff gets done. Loose ends get tied off, projects come to fruition and, if you’re lucky, what you’ve done makes a little bit of difference to someone.
That’s pretty much is this week. I’ve been flat out at work and enjoying it. Not that lose yourself in work stress-out that goes on. Moreover, getting stuck in because I’m enjoying it. Unless I have to, I don’t work outside of work hours. Hey, I don’t get overtime, so really, is there any point? But this time around, part of the project was intellectual challenge and the software is something I like using. I guess it’s a bit like putting together a fine sculpture or a jigsaw. Your start with the raw materials, get those sorted and build up from the basics. Do a few test runs and slowly add to the work until it’s ready. Hmmm, come to think of it, it sounds more like baking…. or Lego…. but hey ho. 🙂
So other than the work thing, there’s been a few events in the pipeline for Chameleons. Firstly, there’s the visit from Boots this coming Thursday. We’ve got Number 7, Clinque and a few folk from fragrance coming along. Rather than it being a make-over session – which we had last time – this event will be three…. I guess you could say mini-shops… where we’ll be able to quiz the staff on ideas and products. There’ll be stock for available to buy and we’re getting 10% off too. That’s due to kick off at 8.30pm, so I’ve got to get my skates on to be ready for 8.15 when the ladies are turning up. Fingers crossed it’ll go well.
In other news, I had an email from a local beauticians asking if they could come along too. I got the whiff of a sales pitch in the email and a telephone conversation confirmed it. Internet services, premium products, gentle sale, jumpers as goal posts, etc. Hmmm, maybe not the last one, but all the same, I’m not convinced that the group will get much out of it and really, if they’re not, why tie up an evening with it. Maybe I’m being overly sceptical, but I’m not getting a good vibe from it.
Do you ever get that? When you’re doing something and the old Han Solo danger-sense kicks in. Something’s not quite right, but you can’t put your finger on it.
