1st of August – let’s just call it pre-Spring? Pretty please?1 August , 2014
I am so very very tired today. It’s been another interesting week. Well yesterday morning I happened to wake up at 3-ish and since I couldn’t get back to sleep I tackled some paperwork. Good times. I was a bit zombie like by the end of yesterday, so a nice proper night’s rest would have been awesome, but Nicola had other ideas. She must have had a nightmare, something to do with umbrellas and me, but she decided the best way to address this was by slapping my face at 2:00 this morning?! Not impressed. Eventually after she’d calmed down, she fell back asleep again – moi however don’t really do well with stop/start sleeping patterns (I am also pretty useless at power napping) so I have been up since 2:00 (as someone pointed out to me earlier…that’s practically yesterday!
I actually don’t know what’s gotten into her lately. I’m hoping it’s just the sicks that she has at the moment and that it will settle down over a week or two, if it doesn’t I will have to start digging for a root cause to all these mood swings. In fact, I think I might start on that just in case anyway.
We had our hair did last night, by the lovely and talented house-call making Angela. For Nicola I decided (with her okay, obviously) just to whack off about three fingers worth of dead ends…
And for me…about three hands.
Nicola put up some cocktail umbrellas for Princess Aurora in the hamster cage last night (I sort of suspect that the nightmare umbrellas are the same ones, but who knows?). Aurora approves. She tried to drag both of them into the mushroom hut, and this got Polka quite excited. She was doing a pretty good meerkat impersonation to keep a close eye on matters.
Die hele ding moet in! The umbrella didn’t fit through the mushroom’s door, so Aurora decided, so help her mouse pellets, she MUST have it in there – even if it’s in pieces! Who hasn’t had a moment like this before? I get it.
Slipper day today for Reach for a dream, and here are my soft and fluffies. I actually got a nice slipper shot in a cafe’ in town, which I’ll upload on the next post because my app is a bit temperamental today about editing. As a team we decided that we needed to prance into JHB CBD with our slippers on to go and have cake…so we did just that.
I have to admit that wearing slippers is not helping me stay awake at all today. *yawn*
Wish me luck in keeping my eyes open. Hope you all have a great weekend!
