Google - Work


Ho hum, another tedious day at work. Bloody half term.

This will probably be rambling because I have nothing else to do. Meh.

So, I'm on leave next week. Various stuff I want to try and get done, including the usual spring cleaning (the kitchen floor is disgusting), going through the attic again and making curtain tie-backs.

I had managed to clear lots of floor space in the attic, but since Lisa is now storing some of her stuff up there as well, that space has been eaten up. I want to try and organise it so there are three distinct areas of my stuff, Lisa's stuff, and Trevor's stuff. And also I need to sort out the videos in the cabinet again as they're not in order any more since we moved them up there. I should probably print the lists off again to stick to the door...

Oh, wait, I don't have a functional printer. BAH. I need to buy one when I've been paid, so that'll have to wait until March.

As for the tie backs, I intended to make these whilst off in October and ended up not bothering, so I should definitely try and get them done next week. I bought all the interfacing and the rings in October, and hopefully they won't even take me that long. I'm making them out of a red corduroy dress which I've worn all of once, about 10 years ago, and if there's enough fabric left I want to make a waistcoat with a corset-style back on it and maybe hook-and-eye fastenings on the front. I need to get some lining first, though. If I make it to fit me now, hopefully the corset back will enable it to still fit if I lose weight. ;)

That should be more than enough for a week off - four days, actually, as we're going down to London on the Friday. Hoping to get tickets for that human body exhibition at O2, though at this short notice it's doubtful. We shall see.

Reet, I'm going to post this before it gets any longer. SO GLAD I'm not in next week, though I'm losing the will to live this week already...
