Surprise!

I didn't think there was going to be much to report this week. I've kept up the SparkPeople tracking; doing pretty well, except for Wednesday when my father-in-law came to tea. But I had a light day on Thursday to compensate! This may be the first time I've actually achieved this. (Loth, I hadn't heard of www.weightlossresources.co.uk, so thank you! I should have deduced that such a thing might be out there. Not that I've got around to checking it out yet, or anything... And thanks for the comments, everyone else. I like comments.)

Weigh-in will be on Monday, same as last time.

I also went for another job interview yesterday afternoon, which I was very nervous about, especially since I had to give a five-minute presentation as part of it. I don't think I've done any public speaking since my European Youth Parliament days (at least five years ago). But in the event, it went fine - in fact, I think it's one of the best interviews I've ever given. Whether or not I get the job, I know I gave it a really good shot. (They're supposed to let me know today.)

But when I got back from being interviewed, I was exhausted. Completely poleaxed. I fell asleep on the sofa, which I never do, and J had to wake me up to tell me to go to bed at about 10! Not like me.

Today didn't start too well: we were supposed to be going to Glasgow to hear the Decemberists, but one of the band members is ill, so the concert is cancelled. Just as we were feeling disappointed about this, we got a phonecall...

We're looking after Snowy and Snuggles again. As in, they're here now, for a week. Still cute, still furry. Just what we needed to cheer us up!

Before too long, we should have guinea pigs of our own: we are first on the list for two babies that were born exactly two weeks ago, but we still don't know what sex they are. We're happy with either boys or girls, but not one of each...

Now to get on with some work, which has been sadly neglected lately.

Too bad about The Decemberists (they are one of my faves), but yay for guinea pigs!

OH I wholeheartedly recommend WLR, try the 3 day trial but it is worth the money, honest. you can make your own recipes and all the uk foods are there, woohoo!

You are more than welcome, m' dear - hope you find it helpful. And I look forward to squishy guinea pig piccies in due course.

thanks for coming over to visit my blog. If you're going to take your mum to see the Millenium Clock you need to go at certain times (I think 11,12, 2 & 3). It is a fantastic atrium but the best bit is the Korean tea room on the top floor, but alas it's not as fascinating to 4 years olds.

Yay for guinea pigs, indeed. It is a bummer about the Decemberists - we had had this booked since, oh, May, and were really looking forward to it - but, well, what can you do?

Korean tea room on the top floor of the Chambers St Museum? This must be investigated! I thought I knew the place from top to bottom, but admittedly haven't been there for a few months.
