Well, I have been back at work for a week now and boy has it been busy with silly changes, which I won’t get into here. Lets just say that as a member of the local repertory club, I have enough scripted conversations in my day without having to have them at work.
My week off involved a lot of nothing. It. Was. Great. First off, I chopped my hair off
Then I got a pet guinea pig.
I haven’t had one since I was 15, and I am glad to be back in the ranks of guinea pig ownership.
I got my eyes tested and it turns out a job that requires you to spend 95% of your time staring at a computer screen isn’t very good for your eyes. So I am getting glasses. I must say though, I think I pull them off. They should arrive next week.
Other things that I got up to was doodling in my visual diary. I wasn’t all that inspired creatively. I did cook up a storm though. I made jars of fig jam, tomato relish, a batch of butter chicken and some baby cakes for my friend’s baby shower.
It was my first baby shower that I’d been to and it set a really high standard. We all brought a bead to the shower and made a necklace for my friend. The idea was that she would be able to draw on the positive energy of her friends during labour. There were cards to decorate and write positive messages to mum to be and baby, a belly cast to decorate and squares of canvas that we could paint on. These would be turned into bunting for the baby’s room.
It was such a cute day.
My pigeon appreciated all of the extra attention during my week off, too.
