Okay, I have no idea how well the olfactory senses are of the giant bat, but anyhew...

It's card-making time, I'm making lists and I'm working on numbers... yes, the design is good to go, I just need to really get my A into G and make the damned things! (desperate hurry because we Kiwis must post our economy cards in early November or else they cost double, and when you do as many as I do, you definitely go economy!)

But first:

Anyone want a home-made Christmas card this year? Many of you will already be on the mailing list, so chances are if you haven't moved you'll get another one this year, but if we weren't already friends by last Christmas and/or you desperately need a haldoor classic card... could you please pop in a comment to show you're interested? Addresses not desperately needed yet, but I'll screen the comments if you want to stick it in now so I'm not scrabbling like an idiot in three weeks time because I don't have them all! Or you can e-m me at haldoor42 at yahoo dot com dot au if you prefer! If I did send one last year, just a 'the address is still the same' type comment would be just fine, thankee-doodles!

(I promise not to stalk you, either... BWAHAHAHAHAHA)

Here it is, November. Did no-one tell the weather gods that this means it's supposed to be warm in NZ? last night was freezing after the wild winds and driving rain! I was really glad I hadn't swapped the winter duvet or put away the extra blanket the other week when I took the electric blankets off our bed. And I was still cold... tried snuggling up to the Hubby (men are always warmer) but he kept moving away. That would be why we both ended uup on his half of the bed by this morning. Dammit, he's not a natural cuddler.

And then, today, as I'm driving to work... not a whisper of wind to be seen, and it's looking like a reasonable day, though there's still cloud about, so it may fool me yet. Considering all the wind damage mentioned on the news last night, I cannot understand it. Still cold though, but that could just be because it's the usual setting of the a/c here at work: Antarctica.

Okay, work calls. Been here for an hour and a half, done nothing. After yesterday, I really had better do something with the two hours I have left. Thank God for getting ahead earlier in the week.

Note to self: Don't forget to stop and buy stamps for the Christmas cards on the way home!

Okay, I know people think I'm as mad as a meat-axe for talking about Christmas this soon, but honestly, when you're making 50+ christmas cards and they need to be ready for overseas posting by early November, if you don't get the design done in September, the whole thing unravels and you find yourself STILL making them for the local contingent in the week before Christmas. I should know, it has happened to me more than once.

They're not altogether fancy this year, but hopefully they still look nice enough. Three variations so far, which may turn into more if I get bored *grin*, but the basic design is in and approved by the committee (Hubby and kids), so I can put them down for the next wee while and concentrate on school holidays and getting ready for our trip away.

When we're back it'll time to think about N2D's 8th birthday (I have not been advised of the cake order yet), and then I will have to get down to the production line business!

So, if you haven't already expressed an interest, but you'd like one, let me know here or by e-m: haldoor42 at yahoo.com.au. Those people who got one last year? You're already on the list, don't worry.

Okay, I'm so pleased with myself, I'm polishing the medal for the chest I'm hoping to be awarded with! HA!

Today I worked at work all day! Okay, apart from three little tiny dips into e-mail, but that's allowed, right?

Yesterday, I finally made a baby card for userinfoniceandfluffy, who only had her baby almost two months ago.

Yay, go me!

Hmm, now if only I can get two more cards made and remember where I hid the rest of the gifts for everyone...

I can't even seem to get motivated to do stuff for myself at home these days (apart from online stuff). What's with that? I have three cards to make, and I keep putting it off. Have been putting it off for weeks. I like making cards, and I usually manage it, if not exactly always on time. The people concerned will wonder if I truly care by now. Sorry. Maybe tomorrow?

Funnily, I can keep playing around in here, and not do anything serious *sigh*

On a good note, I did dig out all the old coins and sort out some to send to [livejournal.com profile] jhobbit which was on my list of things to do for last weekend. (Our coins are changing, saving some of the old for posterity & some for a friend).

Now if I can just get the cards made, maybe I'll actually get around to packaging up the six parcels/presents/cards I have to send overseas... (one's been due since May. Jeez, Wayne) I do actually have everything together now, apart from the cards, so no real excuses not to.

Okay, maybe now I've said it here, I'll HAVE to do it tomorrow, right?

Yes, I did it! I finished the newsletter that's going with many of the Christmas cards!!! I still have to print the copies out and do everything else, but I accomplished what I set out to do tonight, and that is something spectacular!!! Considering how panicked I was feeling earlier and how many things were just not going my way, it is truly an achievement! *Pats self on back*.

... so shouldn't even be doing this. Stuff it though. It's Monday morning and already I have too much to do, so why do any of it?

On a completely different note, I had a successful weekend with the Christmas cards. Still got to put in the inner words bit and "Merry Christmas" on the front, but no big deal. That'll take what, an hour? Didn't get my newsletters done though... *sigh*, so that's tonight's BIG JOB. Mustn't get distracted by MSN or any other bloody thing.

Another good thing? Started a great thread with Griffin on the EN RPG yesterday. Going very nicely. Rain, I love working with you, did I say?

OK, this was the last fluff around. Must do some serious work now.
