Hi everyone out there in t’interweb land,
Argh, brain freeze. 🙂 Where to start? Well, it’s been a pretty good week, all things considered. The weather’s been good, the nippers have kept out of trouble, the Ever Lovely Mrs Jones hasn’t been over-worked and apart from a slight issue with the hound, all is good. Oh, and it’ll be about a week or so, since I reduced the anti-miserabalist tablets and dare I say (Ed: Dare! Dare!) that so far so good. All in all, it’s been rather quiet and relaxing. So there’s not really a lot to report! 😉
Given that I’d not been shopping for sometime, I decided to invest in some rather nice leopard print peep-toe heels. A bargain at under 30 quid, so I sent off for them. Sadly, it was one of those small eights, which I guess is a way of saying, it’s a 7.5 but we’ll flog it as an eight. 🙁 Back they went, although it did prompt me to go through my cupboard and see what I’d got in there.
Thursday meant a night out with the (t)girls as it was Chameleons once again. The numbers have been doing rather well of late, so doing okay with the rent of the centre. It’s also good to see everyone chatting and having a relaxed time of it. For want of something to do, we had a bring and buy sale. I know I had a few items in my closet that I wasn’t going to wear any more: a couple of skirts, a few tops, some boots.
Talking of boots, a certain lady – who shall remain nameless – brought along her new laptop and ran a quick picture show of all the boots she owned. Not so much in an ooo-look-at-me way, but more, I-think-my-shopping-has-taken-over way. 🙂 One hundred and seventy pairs….give or take a few.
Talking of technology, I’m still slightly in awe of what we seem to be capable of and just how quickly things just become the norm. I mean, I’ve been working from home for most of this week and with the use of Skype and other such gadgets, it’s pretty much like being in the office…. only quieter and I get more done. Not that it’s bad where I work, far from it, but there are times when you really need to get your head down and crack on with writing or catching up with certain emails. I’ve also switched to using Chrome as an experiment. Browser-wise, I’m not really fussed over the big three (IE, Firefox or Chrome) – just so long as there’s an ad-blocker function. I suppose if I really knew my stuff, I’d block it at the router, but I’m lazy and after a day battling with servers and whatnot, I’m very much in user-mode: I’m happy to switch off and just use the technology. 🙂
Where were we? Oh, yes, bring & buy. A few items went and that helped top up the funds a little more. Judging by the finances and what Sandi had to say, we should be sorted for a party this coming July. It’ll be free entrance to regular attendees, which I think is rather nice. What didn’t go, will go to a local charity shop, so really, everyone gets something…. sort of.
Outfit-wise, I tried for a summery look and a break from leggings + long top. Not that there’s anything wrong with that, but I try not to get stuck wearing the same thing. The heels are bright pink and while I love the kitsch colour of them, they’re okay provided you don’t spend time putting out chairs, tables, bring & buy or making the tea. Perhaps gladiators would have been a better choice. Oh the vanity!
One last thing, according to the Internet, it may well be the end of the world by the end of the month. I hope not, I’ve just paid the remainder of the family holiday. 😉
