It's almost spring so that means.....

Well I am throughly exhausted today as I have spent most of the day decorating.

Yes the long delayed project of decorating my room is gathering pace as I have not only not painted the ceiling, but also painted all of the walls as well.

And if that wasn't enough we are also in the process of redecorating the office into a new art/hobby room.

That lead in turn to Grumpy and Tap Dance spending most of the afternoon cleaning out the garage.

Hopefully one more weekend will lead to the painting being all finished and I can get the new flooring done.

And once that is done it will be time for a complete overhaul of all of the furnishings as well. New bed, wardrobe, dresser, the works.

2012 is looking better already.

Just in case you have a little bit of spare change hanging around

Well after being quiet for sometime it's appears the scientists of we've got nothing better to do university rather than doing something useful have actually been encouraging the enconomists at the university to also set their minds to things which are really not much use of all.

For example wonder how much the annual fees at Hogwarts would cost you? Well wonder no more as it apparently it would cost you £26,816.

Quite how they arrived at that figure, they don't explain. Or explain why they came to this conclusion in GBP rather than galleons.

Also are you struggling to keep a pesky rebellion under control whilst ruling you galactic empire in a galaxy, far, far away? Well you need a death star! And what would one of this megalithic orbital weapons set you back? Why all of the iron in the earths core plus a mere £543,511,248,000,000,060 in spare change.

Best start saving then :-)

Please stop talking

From my new desk ( my 9th by my reckoning in just over two years we don't half move around a lot at work :-) at work I've been finding that I've been learning a awful lot about some of my other team mates that I didn't know before.

For example one of the girls has a surprising fascination with history which I didn't know about before. Even if some of her queries would make a history teacher shudder. For example one line she came out with today was
" Did Henry 8th get so married so many times because he liked the ladies?"

Another one of the guys seems to have developed the severe ability of not only sticking his foot in his mouth, but getting both feet in there and ramming them down his throat.

Even worst then I can do sometimes and that's saying something.

But it's more interesting that I seem to be learning so much as I have been in this team almost a year after all.

It just goes to show, you never know quite as much about the people you work with as you think you do.

Excuses, excuses, and more excuses

Okay, so hands up for confusion time once again. I have had a little bit of a unexpected sabbatical when it comes to blog posting but I do have a good reason.

Basically I have been working on my new photography portfolio website and so this has been absorbing a surprising amount of my time which meant unfortunatly something had to give and in this case it was blogging.

So sorry about that :-)

Fortunatly the website is nearing it's official launch, which means I will have a lot more time for blogging and things as a website is always a lot more work when you first start then when it's up and running.

Or at least that's one I'm hoping.

It's still confusing for little dogs

Owen likes to talk on the telephone.

And by talk, I mean when Tap Dance rings up he always drops whatever he is doing and runs over to whoever has the phone and sets there giving the old puppy dog eyes until the phone his held to his ear and he can "chat" with her.

Of course this does mean when we get phone calls from other people Owen still rushes over wanting to talk. Which is tempting especially when we get calls from telemarketers ( that would confuse them).

It also got very confusing the other night when Tap Dance was here and someone called for her. We passed the phone to her Owen immediately rushed over wanting to talk and that suddenly backed off looking at her rather confused obivously trying to figure out if Tap Dance was here who was on the phone?

Cold, cold, cold and yes more cold

Well winter is certainly here, somewhat late really as lets face it we are in February already!

Wait how did that happen? We're in February where did January go?

Anyway, it's been cold today. Very cold as a matter of fact, that it took the car nearly ten minutes to warm up on the journey home before my teeth actually managed to stop chattering, and I was still wearing my suit jacket.

And lets not forget according to the weathermen it's actually supposed to get even colder overnight.

So heating on all night me thinks, otherwise theres no way whatsoever that I'm going to be able to drag myself out of bed in the morning.
