Lest I forget
This is an image of my Anzac Day. I was going to do all sorts of nice things with my boys and then a huge pile of Mary Gilmore Volume 2 landed on me.
A whole day of typing and tweaking and PDFing and tweaking some more and I think we're ready to send it to the printers and me to the doghouse. And I'm only one of the team that has suffered to bring the world this Very Important Book. I hate working on public holidays. It makes me feel like John Howard has WON. But that's the life of a freelancer, kids.*
Note to self: say NO occasionally!
And judging from my failed attempts to find Best Beloved a birthday gift on ebay, the rest of Australia was bidding on things for their Anzac Day afternoon. The ebay website was nigh-on impossible to access until about 7.30pm. What does that say about us as a nation?
* Ahem. To that nice motivational speaker person who emailed to tell me that I'm on a list of Very Positive Australian Blogs, thanks, I'm pleased. But I don't have to be cheery all the time do I? Working my guts out on a public holiday whilst being premenstrual doesn't make a bright and cheery duck. And never will.
