I’ve been a busy little beaver recently! Lots going on, but nothing quite finished enough to dedicate a post to, so here’s the wrap up:
Last weekend we went to the coast with my parents, which was really great, it was raining and miserable in Canberra but absolutely gorgeous at Jervis Bay. We went to Hyams beach on Sunday and it had totally amazing white sand, the nicest I’ve ever seen. The doggies stayed in Canberra, they had a sleepover with their Uncle Buster at JA’s parents place.
We came back Sunday afternoon to celebrate JA’s dad’s birthday with him with take away Turkish and cupcakes. Yum.
Monday was a public holiday in Canberra, and boy howdy did I make use of it! My plan was to just go shopping for a few bits and bobs and out to DFO to see what the clothing stores could offer me, but I decided that I may as well rip up the old carpet in the spare room and lay the new stuff, since it was just sitting there waiting to be done. In order to do that, I needed to move everything out of the room, which included the big blue chair I was in the middle of re-covering, so I decided I needed to finish that up too. Turns out laying carpet sucks, and I did a fairly poor job, but I’ll leave that for another post.
I did end up going shopping, out to Rodney’s Nursery where they were having their semi-regular 50% off all pots and some plants sale. I got 2 quite large square stone pots, and a bunch of plants. I also went to Spotlight and picked up some things for my handmade stall in two weeks, and to Officeworks for some officey type stuff.
Work yesterday was draining, I’ve had a scratchy throat since Saturday and my head was fogging up, things didn’t look good, so I organised in advance to have today off and made sure all my classes were covered. I’d already made plans to visit my friend Amanda and her bub Ashlee, which was really nice, we hadn’t caught up in ages. By the time I went home though I was feeling pretty ratty, with a headache and sore throat.
Today though, when I woke up, I felt much better. If I hadn’t already organised the day off work I probably would have gone in, but I think it’s probably better I didn’t, nothing worse than spreading sickness through a school. So I stayed home and did more gardening, sitting in the sun with Bella on my lap for most of the day. Sounds relaxing I know, but I actually worked really hard, so much for resting up! I’ll post about the area of the garden I worked on another day after I take some photos.
Now I have a bit of design work to catch up on, and am about to go make a super yummy dinner of home made chicken burgers!
See? Busy beaver =)
