So, December is finally here. I’ve been slowly getting the flat ready for Christmas and getting into the spirit of things. Tomorrow morning I can open the first day in my (chocolate) advent calendar. 😀 No, you can never get too old for a calendar okay. 😐 There’s still lots of snow outside, which instantly makes me feel like Christmas when I look out the window. I so hope it stays until Christmas… or at least until Friday, as I have a shoot that requires snow.
I really want to take some new pictures. My flashes just stand in the corner of the room and I’m dying to try them out properly. But for some reason this week seems to be the nightmare week from hell. Well, actually it probably has to do with the fact that I have next week off work and then two more weeks around Christmas, so I need to get a lot of work done before that. Sucks. Why is it that taking time off means you just have to do your work in less time. 😐 I will try my darnest not to think about work during my hols though… I need to empty my head from it.
I’ve been also having some computer problems. I bought a new HD and whilst putting it in, the socket that keeps the heatsink down broke. The plastic just crumbled completely. So umm.. argh. At the moment I have my old HD in Stu’s computer (thanks darling), so I can at least work until I get a new thingy for my computer. I just hate hardware. Every little step forward always requires huge painful leaps backwards first. 😐 But when it’s all sorted and I’ve got my new HD in and I’ve installed everything from fresh it should be good. At least it means I don’t have to burn pictures on CD’s after each shoot to be able to have enough space. And maybe my computer will start being a bit less contemplative as well… Can’t wait.
Mmmm I made the bestest Canneloni today. And it was low-fat as well. Absolutely yummy. 😛 Oh and on Sunday, Stu made the most beautiful Chicken Pie (with my assistance I have to add :P). It was just perfect, quite impressed I was.
