Well it's been another big week with many highlights including the dissapearance of my spots about 8 hours after I spent $20 on prescription medicines to treat them. I barely even opened the tubes but I'm not complaining. It would be nice to know what caused them but I think I'll just assume it was working-too-hard-itis. The other highlight was the financial stuff being approved for our new house purchase - this means we'll be moving into our own home in about a month which will be FAN-TAS-TIC!!! and a first for us as we've always rented. I might just kick a hole through a wall to celebrate when we move in and I won't have to worry about losing the bond! Yay. Belinda came to stay for a few nights which was also a highlight - she may be the last guest to stay in this house but it's up in the air as to who will be the first guest(s) to stay in our new GUEST ROOM facility in the new house - book now.
In other news, I finished off a couple of cakes for the weekend tonight but gee it's been hard getting them done - it wasn't helped by the fact that I baked for a 3 tier cake when in fact the order was only for two tiers. Luckily Denny needs a cake for a party tomorrow so she'll get the huge bottom tier sized cake and all the brownie points for effort. I must mention that belinda made almost all the pebbles for the pebble cake and would have stuck on the butterflies on the '1' cake except I made her too nervous by being very finnicky about their positioning.
Work is still great - I"m a bit jealous of the animators sometimes (I can see them working away from my desk) but other times I'm happy to be doing what I'm doing as a) I get a whole desk to myself and b) I'm being paid more than I would be as an entry level animator which I certainly would be and c) I get to stick my nose into all sorts of related stuff rather than just focus on the animation alone. I'm still hoping for a few bits of quiet time when I can try out some animation for myself though.
My back has been really sore this week. I'm putting it down to playing sweeper at soccer on sunday and having to sprint a lot, rather than just steadily running around in the midfield like I normally do. Hopefully it will be ok for this week's game.
