Why I need to postpone...

I was flat out from 4.30 this morning - billed a few hours before going in to my other job, where there are 1500 28 page directories to be printed and folded (on a shared printer) AS WELL AS 5 different flyers to be printed and guillotined (1500 copies of each - some 2 to a page, some 4, some 8) AS WELL AS create an online newletter AND collate stats and surveys into a document for a federal department by Wednesday (thank goodness the girl who I am sitting in for is on leave for health reasons and totally bored at home who did some of that for me today) - oh, and having to move my car every 2 hours to avoid a parking ticket as I was late to work because V had an assignment due today and mine is the only computer that can print at the moment but doesn't have the software that V used - that was fun. My boss did take me out for coffee at 4, and then I left that job and went to a client's place who COMPLETELY stuffed up earlier this year and we are still trying to untagle that in each reconciliation and she needs it sorted to get her GST sorted for the quarter - soooo...

I got home at 1/4 to 7, to a glass of wine presented by my daughter, dinner cooked for me by her and V, a cake they had bought and decorated, opened presents and got many texts and phone calls, saw lovely messages here and other internet portals, a lovely bath and good evening.

Even though it got great by the end, I am still going to do something on a day of my choosing as my day got taken away!!

You're a quiet horse. Happy birthday. Sounds like you hardly had time to breathe though.

Your bossy sister said to get over here and say happy birthday!!

Sounds like you are pretty special to her, so here's wishing you an excellent "big" birthday.

Thanks for the visit! Because you haven't posted anymore does this mean that you've gotten time to chill (as my son says)?

Jay said...

Oh, happy birthday sweetie! You deserve the best.

Happy Birthday! Sorry you were so busy, but you deserve double-off time on the day of your choice.
