Because I can’t think of other things to talk about…

Happy Saturday! This week was a stressful and yucky one for me.

But, my flu is on it’s way out (I ate breakfast for the first time this week!)

I lost 3 kgs this week.

Pookie and I are going to have an awesome weekend in just 2 weeks time.

It’s sad because I haven’t seen her since the wedding. Lame.

I’m going off to get a haircut today.

Even if Hubs doesn’t realise it yet.

I think this weekend is going to make up for my less than desireable week.

Well, I’m busy

I have been so good at posting everyday lately. I am proud of my self.

But see, there is a gigantic marketing exhibition in town and my company is exhibiting. Which is great. Except that means leaving the house at 6 am and returning after 7pm in order to beat the traffic, fit in my normal work AND be in the show. SOOO I won’t be around much the next few days.

Sad day.

But I am hoping that gives you lots of time to miss me, so that when I return, you will be smitten by me again.

Man alive, I have some awesome funy crap to show you. One being a line or two in a manual I read and something in my freezer. Oh and the thing that was not supposed to be in my food but was. Oh the stories I can tell you! Seriously.

Have a wonderful next few days! I’ll be back for the weekend!
