Assisted by my beautiful assistant we drew two names for the journals I covered. Mel and Amie - let me know which one you'd prefer and I'll send them your way. Amie I will also need your address. (Think I've got your one somewhere Mel).
Speaking of my beautiful assistant - she decided to make herself more beautiful by cutting her own hair on Sunday after we got home from our church meeting.
In other news:
- I have made 6 bottles of plum jam, 6 bottles of strawberry jam. Chelsea's jam setting sugar is good for the strawberries since the extra pectin helps.
- The whanau appears to be afflicted with some tummy bug. I'm expecting to be smitten forthwith
- DH lost his $800 tripod off the rocks at O'Neills Bay, Bethells Beach/Te Henga. If you find a tripod washed up on the sand he'd love to see it back but we're not hopeful. An unexpected gust of wind blew it over. Fortunately the camera wasn't on it, and fortunately AMI looks like it will play nicely and help us replace it. And fortunately DH had enough sense to not go diving for it because it's a washing machine of waves & rocks in that area. I'd rather have my husband and lose the tripod.
- I did one layout on the weekend. Whee.
Getting things together for my trip to Melbourne next week to attend a conference there. I'm excited to go and nervous too. New faces, different environment, having to make conversation... all things I'm not so good at. But thanks to Twitter and blogs there will be people I have chatted with and am now going to meet IRL and that always helps. I have been to Melbourne BK (before kids) so it won't be entirely unfamiliar. Hope it won't be too hot.
