My first Candy doll

Thanks to Amberley I've discovered Candybar dolls. They have 413 pairs of shoes to choose from - that's even more than I have ;)

Apparently making these is quite addictive and I can see why. Anyway you can have a look at my first doll.

Birthdays RULE
I love birthdays, especially ones that last for a long time. I went shopping today with Amberley and successfully spent all my birthday vouchers (without getting the fondue set... hmm might have to splash out on that too... did I hear someone mention chocolate?). Of course shopping is fun, spending time with friends is fun and combining that with memories of my birthday makes it even better! Oh, and I've still got another present in the wings too. I'll report back on that after Sunday.

Ring the SLWA switchboard...

Today I was asked to re-record the State Library's switchboard message for the ANZAC day holiday opening hours... I was thrilled to be asked! Obviously the Information Systems department thinks I have a nice enough voice for the job! lol

So now I'm going to ring 9427 3111 and press 1 to hear the opening hours to see how I sound! :D

I like words!

For those of you who know me well it will not come as a surprise that I am sitting at my computer during my lunch hour looking up words in the dictionary, well an computerised one. I was trying to work out a new name for my space - but all to no avail...

Even if you are not a budding etymologist you should check out WordWeb it is pretty cool http://wordweb.info/free/. I love the Parts, Types, Type of and Part of features, though you can spend waay to much time looking around for the perfect word.

Oh and BTW my brother just won a double pass to the Hitch Hiker's Guide to the Galaxy movie (now that would be worth seeing!)

Perfume anyone?

Well, Ky and I had a lovely morning, we went off to a perfume party. How could I not go when it included chocolate fondue? (For those of you seeing me tomorrow my apologies in advance - I tested 4 perfumes!)

Apart from the chance to catch up Ky also brought my pressie and photos of my birthday dinner (and the ball she and Russ went to). All in all it was a very fun morning...

I beat winter today! Achievement for the day: I managed to get my walk in before it got too dark!

Oh and if any of are you wondering about Friday night I had a fab time. Read: delectable delicacies for dinner, comical confabulation with my chums and a gorgeous gateau for g, g, supper??

(OK maybe that is a little over the top but the food was good, and I was going to say friends but that would have spoiled my alliteration!)
Ok it is not the longest meeting that I've ever had... but when you finally get out a "short" meeting that lasts an hour and 15 and it means you miss morning tea with your friends... well you guys know what it's like I'm sure.
I had a pretty good day after that, caught up on the weekend goss via my secret society of informants (MSSI), managed to do *most* of what I had planned.
At about 6:30 I thought I'd go for my little 20min walk - except it was pitch black. I'll admit I'm in denial: I refuse to accept that winter is coming!

What is the better giving or receiving I have to say I'll go with giving 99% of the time. I've had the pleasure of being able to give quite a few presents lately and there is nothing like seeing the face of someone receiving the gift you've spent several hours making or selecting!
