This post will say Friday - but actually Friday hasn't really happened yet, although we are a good hour in. As usual I'm up a bit past my ideal bed-time - and as usual it's because I've been working on cakes - one for the weekend and this one for my work's 'First Week of Production' Party happening tomorrow night. It's a voluntary thing but my enthusiam for making it was given a boost yesterday when I got a payrise!! I've never had an out-of-the-blue-you're-doing-well-so-we've-given-you-a-payrise moment in all my past positions (I like to think that is more because of the nature of the companies I have worked for rather than my abilities!) so it was pretty cool. My pay rise lifts me from 'paultry' to 'meagre' but I'm not complaining as they certainly could have gotten away without doing it, so it was a really nice gesture - yay.
In other news, the creche has confirmed my suspicions that Jett may have been switched at the hospital. They have declared him a compulsive packer-upperer which is something I have witnessed here at home and is not is certianly not in my gene pool - although to be fair jon is quite tidy when left to his own devices. The other day we gave Zali some new shoes in a box (I didn't give any to Jett as he is VERY particular about his shoes and currently attached to his blundstones) - and after she had unpacked them and scattered the shoes and packaging around, Jett collected up the shoes, put them back in the box, put the lid on, THEN put them back in the plastic bag they came in! Then he dragged the whole bag away presumably to find somewhere tidy to put it all. Also when he blows his nose on a tissue, he is very particular about throwing the tissue in the bin afterwards. The creche said that he is normally the only toddler in his room doing any packing up and he is quite frankly a bit obsessive about it. It will be interesting to see how his environment influences his natural instincts.
