What a busy, busy time it has been for me, and I'm wondering where on earth the last 3 weeks went!

*Bec really enjoyed her music camp, and wants to go next year (phew) - and she even made some new friends in upper school.

*My German Shepherd is due to have puppies any day now....I have mixed emotions about that one. The kiddies are of course excited, I have no idea what to do, and the first mistake I did was to Google German Shepherd birthing - apparently anything and everything can go wrong, and they like to have them in the middle of the night - nice - but of course I can always take her temperature each day (and guess where I have to stick the thermometre) and when her temp. drops, it'll happen. No. Way. Will. I. Do. That!!
Wish me luck...I'll post photos when they come.

*And I now have a job as a secretary..WOOHOO. I am really loving it, but feel a bit overwhelmed at the moment - I didn't realise how rusty my typing skills had become. So I have been madly trying to do the Mummy, Secretary, Wifey, House Worky thingy lately and am feeling a bit pooped! (Hence the lack of Blogging)

Anyhoo, now that I am working I have to have some new work clothes...I'm starting to run out. Here's a McCall's 5205 (c. 1959) that I bought a while ago from this lovely seller on ebay.

I have some lovely soft suiting in a black (surprise, surprise) with a faint, light blue slub in it. I'll pop a crisp white shirt underneath and voila! I think I'll look very 'secretary-like' in it, and I'll show you the pictures when I've finished it.

Catch you later...
