Curry Night a la my house

Hugh Fearnley Curry

I really am so productive these days! I am romping through the to-do lists although a stream of new enquiries is keeping them topped up. I thikn it must be the end of financial year looming for some companies that is causing the extra interest in quick, affordable websites. I’m certainly not complaining, it’s great for us and we should always make the most of times like this.

Great news of the day was that Hubby got an interview at the BBC! So pleased for him and excited to see how it all goes, fingers crossed he gets the job although he’s also down for some freelancing with them so either way should see him re-enter the jobs market for a good while. Recession redundancy hasn’t been too bad on us so far although my thoughts may change next week if Hubby isn’t successful!

I made the best dinner tonight, I’ve made it before (and i’ll make it again!). It’s so easy, just requires a bit of removing the bones before you serve but is tender and spicy and delicious! A lot of the time we haven’t got all the ingredients fresh so we just improvise with the dry herbs in the cupboard and is always a treat!

Wild Weather

As is the norm for this time of year, and around the full moon, we are being battered with winds and rains at the moment. The cats cant stand it so have decided just to annoy me all day instead of going outside on their usual adventures.
I got the Boywonder, our web assistant at the office, back today after his 3 month travels round the USA. Was great having an extra pair of hands and looking forward to having him back full-time soon, when the pennies allow. I was doing a lot of multitasking today between projects but hoping to spend a whole day designing things tomorrow. Satyed indoors all day yesterday and today to avoid the weather but going to go for a wee jaunt round the block just now and then a session on the cross trainer beckons. Struggling a bit to make it ‘routine’ just feels ‘boring’ but need to keep at it.
Attempted to cook a saffron risotto for dinner but didnt quite get the hand of the rice, was a bit undercooked and Hubby wasn’t keen. Ah well I can always pick up a chippy on my wee walk!

Managed to get up in time to get onto my Mac by 10am today woohoo! Back to pre-Christmas Timeframe although I am totally knackered now. Had lots of little admin things to do this morning but was great getting the huge to-do list down to a more manageable size. Then popped into town for a meeting with my bizpartner and our long lost staff member who has been away travelling for the past 3months. Thankfully he seems keen to come back to work and both guys seemed to like my strategic plan for the next few months, exciting times. Then had a meeting with a friend of mine who I am helping to get a website up and running, also got a tour of his new photography studio. All looking like a great wee business and am keen to help out with any advice if possible, it can be such a nightmare trying to find funding and support when setting up as it can feel really overwhelming.
Came home and Hubbie had wallpapered the hallway and put a new carpet down, very fancy and makes it all seem more homely.
