Bits and pieces...

Completely knackered but the bathroom is painted and finished up to a point. Any renovator worth their salt knows that for several days later you are still touching things up. I call it painting blindness. Everything looks good but suddenly you notice this area or that needs more paint or there is a drip of aqua of the light blue that you did not notice before. So it’s on to the kitchen next. Lordy I have some crap in there…

Incredibly talented author
Barbara Huffert sent me some Gertrude Hawk Chocolates…OMG…what an amazing woman Gertrude is. I am going to start a petition to have her made a saint. Bless you B and bless you Gertrude for such sinful chocs. Click here to check out Gertrude and consider the advantages of sin. What are they? Sin means you absolve yourself of guilt and just enjoy. I think we all need to do that every so often.

If anyone cares….Paris Hilton is in Australia. Yes, I care deeply too. Why do we need her here? Stuffed if I know. I just have to wonder why someone with so much money and fame does not get her finger out and do something to make a difference in the world. Go figure…

A California mother has given birth to a boy weighing in at 6.4 kilos (14 pounds, 2 ounces).

Ouch…is this the camel through the eye of a needle thing or what?

That’s about it. Back to work Friday – yeah…weird I know but only anyone who has ever done a financial month end will completely understand what madness ensues during this period. Grown men have been known to cry. Grown women just get on with it as we do….

Until then, I paint and write. I picked up a couple of book contracts. I think it’s always good to know people do not think you suck completely.
