Catch up

The past week has gone by in a bit of a blur... too much to do and not enough sleep, unfortunately. I'm just hanging out for Friday, when I'll be freed from the office grind for a lovely long five weeks. Here's my quick roundup of recent events:

I wasn't happy when I woke up yesterday with a nasty sore throat - AGAIN. What the hell, universe? I've had my quota of suffering for this year. *grumble* Luckily it's better today, so I'm optimistic that I'll be feeling fine and full of the Christmas spirit by the end of the week. And not the kind that comes in a bottle, either.

This morning I'm heading off early and taking a detour on my way to work to spend some birthday loot on one of these:

I'm very excited about this purchase. I've owned a series of Canon SLRs since 1994, but have never been able to justify the cost of a genuine Canon flash. Thanks to some lovely friends at work who gave me a shopping voucher to spend at Knifepoint, plus some cash from family, I have the funds to splurge on one to go with my spanking new 500D.

The Baby's birthday is on Friday and he's been doing a countdown since the calendar ticked over to December. We'll all be glad when the day finally arrives. Must remember to get a cake - I always make an extra effort to give the kid a special birthday, so it doesn't just blend into Christmas. Apparently I've been remiss with my other kids though - The Middle Child pointed out when I ordered the cake for his 18th this year that he's never had a cake before. Not quite true, but I may have overlooked it more than once... Hey, it's my birthday too - someone else should be doing cake duty.

I'll be back after Christmas with some more health and fitness-related posts. Right now, I'm way too tired to think clearly...

Have a merry one, lovely blog people!

Yes, oh yes! Been trying to catch you on the phone, but our schedules are out of synch. Lovely surprise... :o)

I'll give it one more go tomorrow, otherwise we'll have to have a loooong chat post-Christmas.
