Does anyone else think of the little geezer from the beginning of Aladdin when they hear that phrase?
But this isn’t about any genies, lamps or talking carpets -just a day at work 🙂
I was editing all last week and Monday but the editor was back on Tuesday. I thought he’d do the last day of that paper but as he had so much else to do – and as it’s a complete nightmare to take over on a Tuesday when you don’t know what else has been sent to the paper – I had to do all the final sending and proofing as well as my writing.
Add to that a HUGE story that broke this week and it meant a long day, culminating in me having a gritted-teeth-polite-to-someone-who’s-really-being-a-complete-arse conversation with a press officer, who I’d been chasing for a response since last Thursday, at 6.40pm and finally leaving the office nearly an hour later. Not good.
But whenever I caught sight of this logo on my computer, it made me get a big grin on my face:
I got Olympics tickets!!
Edit: I’ve just realised that’s actually the Paralympics logo. Blame my newfound screen-grabbing skill not being fast enough to do it before t’other one flicked over… 🙂
The buying window re-opened for equestrian events on Tuesday and as I’d been unsusccessful twice before, I had to rub my eyes a couple of times when I saw the “your purchase has been succesful” message. We’re going to the individual dressage final – with medal ceremony – on August 9… definitely the diamond in a rough day 🙂
Another diamond from this week:
On a lazy evening when I’d run out of apples for breakfast crumbles and couldn’t be bothered to make porridge for the morning, I just cooked the carrot, added the oats, spice, flax seed and water to the bowl and left it to soak overnight. Yes, it looked exactly the same, tasted exactly the same and pretty much was exactly the same but it saved on time – and washing-up. And in these times of drought…
… Ya gotta do what ya can, int’cha? Maybe not quite a diamond – but a cubic zirconia, at least 🙂
