Happy Birthday to me....

Thanks to all the nice people for the birthday texts, emails and messages. For my birthday so far, I have driven to Clayton with Clara to find out that there are 3 puppies on the way. Of course there are pictures:

So to sum up for all those who are interested:
  • put puppies in Clara - Check
  • Check how many there are - Check
  • Get puppies out of Clara - Booked in for Monday
  • Keep puppies alive - Planned for November
  • Have lots of people around to play with the puppies - Planned for January
Fingers crossed there will still be three puppies by then too!

When the cats away....

My boss was away for 5 weeks and it was her first week back this week.
While she was away, a few of us had trouble getting motivated. I
personally did very little work while she was away. There was one
particular bit of work I avoided the whole time she was away, which I
felt particarly guilty about.
Any way, during this time, I had a bit of a Facebook binge, worse than
I have had for about a year or more. I was playing so many games it
was nearly impossible to get any work done!
The situation was so bad that I decided I had to go 'cold turkey' and
not even open Facebook whilst at work. Well, today was the end of day
2. I had a tiny laps yesterday, just to harvest some crop and re
plant (I delibreatly re planted with slow growing crops), and then at
the end of the day, but that was ok, cos I had finished working by
then. Today was more sucessfull. Only opened Facebook after 5pm! Yay
me :)

Last night, Neil made 3 cheese soufflé for dinner. Not sure where the urge came from, but they turned out yum.

Craft fair

Today I went to the craft fair, the new craft fair, not the old crap craft fair. It was in the Exhibition Buildings, not crappy old Jeff's Shed.

To be honest, it was just a craft fair. I did like the way many of the compertion entries were dispalyed in amongst the stall. I'm not sure how I'd feel about it if it was one of my peices, but it did mean more people saw them. It have the usual issue for a craft show for me:
  • too much scrap booking
  • too much patchwork
  • not enough everything else
But I do think this one had less patch working than the other craft fair. It was big, but I don't think as big as the other one. Anyway, I have not been to the exhibition buildings very a very long time. I have a vague memory of seeming a car show there about 4000 years ago, and that's about it, for the inside at least. I see the outside every day at work. I was very impressed with the restoration job that was done... not sure when (very informative this blog isn't it?) Here is a photoClearly, it dosn't do it justice, but you get the idea.
