This is just a really quick post, as I feel dreadful … we found out yesterday morning that the rental property we’ve been keen on was open for an inspection between 5.30-5.45pm tonight, and I had to do a shift swap with someone to cover it, meaning I had a bare 10-hour turnaround between shifts last night, and a 6 hour sleep. Oh boy, do I owe my swap partner BIG time as she has to do that tonight! As it turns out, the lounge/dining and outside area was lovely, and the master bedroom was fine – there were actually 3 toilets (!), and two showers/bathrooms … BUT the two other bedrooms were tiny, and only really suitable for single beds … so all-in-all not suitable at all, and it’s back to the drawing board again. I’m not giving my notice in here until we find somewhere as I couldn’t afford to get movers in twice, so at least I have a roof over my head for longer, but I really and truly hate this part of house-hunting … you have to look at so many doggy properties before you find one you like and hope like heck you get approved over other people … ho-hum.
Thanks for the comments about the photo hosting options … I really appreciate it. I have to admit, I like the idea of having tags etc on Flickr photos, and the simplicity of blogging direct from Flickr … but I also haven’t really looked that deeply into Photobucket and what it can do, and I really love the simplicity of Photobucket for uploading piccies to date (in fact I prefer it over WordPress’s upload options). I’ll do a bit more research and see if I can set my Photobucket albums up a bit better than they currently are and maybe get better utilisation out of it.
I have to admit, too, I’ve been feeling headachey all day today and running to the bathroom every hour (plus a slight pressure on what I think is around the kidney area this morning), so I think I’m coming down with the stupid virus that’s rampant everywhere at the moment … so tonight I’m going to take it easy and kick back and just have maybe an hour’s stitching time on Winter Queen, as well as planning a couple of upcoming ornies and gifts. Dinner’s already taken care of … I made myself two lamb shanks in red wine on Sunday night, and forgot to take the second one into work last night, so I’m reheating it tonight instead … delishimo!
And on that note, I’m walking away from the PC for the night, and heading for the microwave … now, where’s the TV Guide? … 🙂
