After a slightly giddy and harried feeling over the past few days, it's Thursday night, which is always a rest night for me, Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday being occupied with dancing. Mostly, though, a few major dancing admin-y/organising matters have been sorted out, and my head feels a lot clearer as a result. I still hold the cash box and other such things for the Reel club, though am no longer officially treasurer - instead, I'm secretary/webmaster. Meaning I hold that position (well, not webmaster for Branch) on two committees. Ah well - at least a few weeks time I'll not be fiddling with change and hoping I've counted it right!
My flashy little mouse that I've had for a few years has finally died after months of irritating me no end, so I have a nice new mouse for the lap top. That said, the aptly named 'rave mouse' on account of it's multi-coloured flashing lights can still merrily flash away, even if it doesn't serve a functional purpose anymore. ;)
Yesterday the intern (who sadly will be leaving us next week) in the department we share an office with brought those us who sit in the 'fishbowl' central area a little item called a martenitsa
. Said colleague is Bulgarian, as are the martenitsas, and I thought it was a lovely gesture: ( So here is my martenista )
Have a busy few days coming up, so am debating whether or not to go to sleep soon and wake up earlier, or stay up later and do things now...suspect bed will win out somehow.
And now some 'back dated' blogging, but wanted to share!
To my delight last year, I discovered we had not only a Christmas tree in Harry Potter's Room (ie, the cupboard under the stairs) but baubles for decoration, lights, and even a star for the top of the tree. Yay! I said, and my housemate and I proceeded to decorate it.
And it was lovely. Except the lights we discovered were a most...interesting colour for a Christmas tree...( as you will see under the cut )
