Have I ever got the post-mental health long weekend yips today!
It's cold and dark and gloomy, so I haven't taken any photos of knitting and unpacking progress from my weekend, but I have to say I think it went ok ;-)
There would have been even more knitting, except we spent most of yesterday up to our elbows in white king cleaning the flat in preparation for our final inspection next monday - then it's finito and see you later suckers to those rental people for good! Huzzah!
Oooh but is it ever hard to get that bleachy smell out of one's nostrils - ugh!
Anyway, let me tell you I could so get used to the whole week days of work, staying in bed until after Oprah (2pm - oh yes I did!) thing.
Work is kind of a weird place at the moment - people are being weird.
Today a colleague came over to my desk and said "oh here's some slice I've brought in for morning tea tomorrow, is it ok if I leave it with you?", then looked at me for a minute, frowned a little, and said "actually, I think I'd better leave it with J instead" (so what, am I the office fatty who can't sit next to a tin of slice with out eating the lot now???)
Someone else is sick of their job and apparently demanding a new one be created for them - with higher pay of course. Not sure who's meant to be doing the job they were hired for then?
Anyway, I was thinking it might be the whole Mercury retrograde thing, but then Mercury's been direct since the 19th (see how we moved on the 20th? Good planning, huh ;) ) so who knows what's going on.
Like I said weird....
The New House, however, is still as fabulous as ever =D
The flowers pictured are part of both the defense against the dark, cold gloom that is mid-winter outside, and my plan to always have fresh flowers around.
The Boy's mum always had fresh flowers in her house, and I each weekend I would look forward to seeing what she had picked up at the local markets.
These guys came from the very local supermarket, and over a week later are still looking lovely - more of those gorgeous yellow lillies (they're lillies, yeah? Oh we're going to have so much fun me posting plant pics and you guys identifying them for me as my garden reveals its planty self!) open their starry petals each day! =)
Hopefully I can get some knitty photos to post in the next couple of days - in the mean time for knitting content you could check out what some of our fave knit bloggy girls got up to at knitting camp (!!!!) on the weekend (however, I have to warn you, you'll probably be jealous - I know I totally am!! hehe)
