So on Wednesday, in between my sanding, staining and varnishing, I had to pop to town for a photo shoot.
Must admit I was a bit worried, as I hate having my photo taken, but these were professionals taking it, so how bad could I look??? Then there was the slight problem of what should I wear. I mean is the world ready to see me in a swimsuit? The phrase "beached whale," comes to mind when I think of me in a swimsuit. So maybe evening dress would be a better option, again another phrase comes to mind "mutton dressed as lamb."
So in the end I opted for jeans and a long sleeved t-shirt. However I could have gone stark naked if I wanted as at the end of the day they only wanted a head shot of me!
Who are "they" you ask, well "they" are the local paper, and I am going to be writing an online column/blog for them just like I do for the British paper. There are still some bits and pieces to sort out but it should be all up and running shortly. My first column is written, and this one will have a more "British take on Canadian life," sort of feel. So fingers crossed it works out well!! Of course I'll post a link when it's all up and running.
As I said earlier I have been busy with the sanding, staining and varnishing of the doors and trim or the closet. Sort of hoping this part will all be completed by sometime next week, as I am not sure how many coats of varnish I will need to put on. While I was out I stocked up on headache pills, as with all this stain and varnish my head will no doubt be killing me.
Did you remember to put your money in your daily savings pot today?
Today's Money Saving Tip:
Think back to the last time you cleaned out the refrigerator. Be honest. Did you throw food out? Everyone has busy days when they don’t have time to cook. Next time you’re running late don’t spend a fortune on takeout. Have a home cooked meal. Spend a couple of dollars on some nice individual serving freezer containers. (The ones with the separate compartments are great). The next time you have leftovers use these containers to store and freeze your meals. Then, when you do have one of those days you can simply pop one of your “tv” dinners into the microwave and your family can enjoy a homecooked feast in minutes. You’ll save time and money in the long run!
