Work has been too hectic for comfort this week.  Today looked like a quiet day, but meetings have been scheduled and now the morning is a wall of meetings.  Oh well, I’ll just do the best I can and soon it will be the weekend!

Moosie Pieday, 30 March

Yayyyy it’s Pieday!!! The last workday of the quarter and so on. Should be a good day, a day full of friends and sunshine, lots of fun things going on!

* stretches – done
* load of boring website sorting – done
* work: payments, bank recon
* writing
* stupid leaving reception for some bloke we don’t know/care about
* PIE with the gorgeous K and the gorgeous R!!! We are hoping to sit outside on the grass as it’s super-sunny again!
* Japanese
* French vocab
* 4 pages of finance textbook

Tonight:
* pop round to Bridesmaid T’s for tea and to pick up thank-you cards!
* home for dinner – cook if B hasn’t
* clean something – I found with delight last night that we’ve already reached the end of our crap-that-lurks-behind-books-on-shelves list, so I think there’s only a limited amount of stuff-we’re-not-aware-of in our flat now!
* try to fit in some piano – aim for 30min
* more stretches

SL’s FTF, Fri 30th March

Had a good time last night – there were only 7 of us in the end and I’d met all the others before and on the whole they were a good bunch. No O, sadly 😦 So it was a small gathering but I prefer that kind of thing. Some great wines. Afterwards, G and I walked back through the City having a drunken bitchy conversation and he did some Top Hat style dancing which was very entertaining.

On with today then!

  • rehyrdrate
  • coffee
  • reply to email from ACC and top up wine order 🙂
  • work: HR woman is coming back… plus crack on with rent analysis and then do some filing goddammit!
  • leave 5.00 on the dot
  • head over to the Ginger Pig to get nice food for the weekend
  • La Fromag? if I can brave the curtain of smugness in the door
  • sort various other things out + do kettlebell as have not done it this morning
  • dinner with G? if not, watch a DVD

OMG!  Yesterday was madness at work.  This sometimes happens when my boss, aka “the tornado” returns.  Several weeks ago, I finished entering all the numbers of our annual budget into the new computer program that the university is using & was feeling very good about finishing early.  Then I got a phone call and the director of the department was wanting to meet with my boss and was very unhappy about the budget.  Agghhh!  As I took a closer look, I saw that all of the figures I’d entered in one section were gone.  I tried to fix it on the fly, but my changes wouldn’t save.  Stress!!!!  I’m hoping to get it all sorted out this morning, while my boss is at meetings.

The chiro has recommended three treatments a week for a month.  I find this schedule a little overwhelming, but I’m going to take it week by week.  I really hope I can get home in time to do a little hiking this evening!
