do be do be doooo

Ok, so for the last little while, things have been a bit back to the bad old days of not really having enough to do at work. But things are going to pick up, I'm sure. My 3 RFQ/Tenders came into day, so that will be fun, evaluating them and appointing someone to do the work, then looking after the progress etc. I do have some BoM stuff to do, but mostly can't be stuffed just now. Also on a not work front, the exciting book of our UK holiday arrived yesterday, everyone was very impressed, especially me!

Anyway, the point of this post was to show you how I have been wasting my time on face book (let me know if you want one, I'll invite you):
picture has died, you're not missing much

Exciting news

This morning on the way to work, my motor cycle turned 30,000km old.
Its a mile stone! (except the its in kilometres, not miles)

it's me

Now I know some of my regular readership is going to groan most heartily at this, but what you can see here is my Birth Chart

There was also pages and pages of stuff that tells me all about myself. Here are some of the amusing ones I felt were TRUE:
  • 82 Conjunction Sun - Mars : She is energetic, determined, courageous, she is full of self-confidence. She likes to dominate, command, direct. She overcomes all difficulties by sheer will-power. She is frank.
  • Moon in IV : She likes family life, peace and quiet: she likes to stay at home, surrounded by loved ones, in agreeable circumstances. Positively influenced by the mother.
  • Mercury in II : Intelligence geared towards ways of making money, becoming rich. All methods are good, sometimes she is on the borderline of honesty, with a tendency to be fraudulent.
  • Saturn in Leo : In a position of authority, she likes responsibilities and assumes them. She receives favours from patrons, who recognize her merits or similarly receives honors in return for well-accomplished tasks.
  • House V in Capricorn : The absolute example of the "serious" type. Everything is calculated, the slightest risk analyzed, patience is one of her main qualities. Doesn't know anything about chance. One or two love affairs, marriage, a family, all unproblematic - done calmly with love and wisdom.
  • House IX in Taurus : Travels but little, no great attraction for abroad. Doesn't change principles, practically never changes mind.
  • House XII in Leo : A few problems with authority or someone in charge.

Then here are the ones I felt were not so true (Bullshit):
  • 322 Conjunction Sun - Uranus : She is above all independent and original. She likes change, reforms, she is allergic to everything routine. She has a strong personality, and has many friends.
  • Venus in III : Likes everything that is beautiful, likes decorum. Outstanding intelligence. She works in a trade linked to beauty, fashion. Numerous select friends.
  • Saturn in XII : She likes quiet and solitude above everything. She looks for work (or can work) alone, without being bothered. She hates chatting, outside noises.
  • House IV in Sagittarius : She will certainly marry a foreigner, or go to live abroad permanently and set up home there.

Hope this has entertained you as much as it did me... :)

Dog, not Scared-ey

Clara, she's just not scared or worried about anything. Today Neil had his swag (big canvas bag with a zip around the edge (it's for sleeping in when you can't be arsed with a tent)) out and was putting the sleeping mat, sleeping and and pillow back into it. He invited Clara in for a look, she wandered in, right to the bottom, sniffed around and wandered out. I scratched at the material from the out side and she went back in, had a go at my hand, wondered round in there some more and came out again. She just isn't worried about anything! So long as we are there with here, she'll do anything! I just didn't know how she got like this, not that I'd swap, it great, but it's a wonder to me every time she does stuff like that. Molly would never do anything like that.
Obviously it was hard work for the both of them though, as they are now both asleep on chairs.

Guess what

I know I know, I'm a bit slow but guess what I discovered yesterday (well yesterday for you, but today for me)? You can schedule posts to appear on your blog while your not there!!! how clever!!! I know you could back date them, but I never had course to forward date them! I'm really excited, but you won't know that til tomorrow (or rather, you'll find out, tomorrow, that I was excited today!! ) Wow, being a time traveller must be really complicated.

I'm not a bit fan of posting links to other blogs, as I think it is a cop-out blog post, but these two blogs I found today (one courtesy of ScarletWords) I have really enjoyed, so I have to pass them onto you, who ever you are:

Speaking of "who ever you are", I know people visit this site, but I am getting way more hits per day than the reads I know of, so who ever you are, leave a comment, introduce yourself, lets chat :)

It took a while....

OK, so we have been back from our holiday for over a year, but this evening, we sent out book of pictures away to be printed :) Yay!!! You can have a sneek peak of the first 15 pages and even order your own copy if you are some sort of strange stalker type. Here, go look:
Our trip to Scotla...
By Louise Sullivan Ne...

and did anyone even notice?!?!?!

I just added a new little Radley animation to my blog. While I was doing that, I noticed that a couple of my little Scotties had disappeared! So I have fixed then too, but did anyone even notice that they were gone! No, fine! Audience! Don't even care about my blog then! Humph!
