I opened my eyes this morning from a horrible nightmare that Hubby was going around kissing my sisters…not just kissing like a BIL but to have an affair. I was devastated! Just a dream and I was so devastated. It was a relief to wake up. I actually thought it was Friday morning, however, I soon realised my mistake.
Tomorrow I am off work to go attend one my required CPD events. We have to do these every so often to maintain a professional registration…it is to ensure that we keep abreast of the field in which we work. I know many people do not like these, I have never been one of them. I love attending these things and being inspired by what I see and hear. I miss the sources of inspiration, that used to be everywhere when I was studying. It has been a while since I saw an event that interested me, I really do not like listening to speakers about the new regulations and all the things we must know. I want to hear new ideas and see great design and building methods. I want to know how we are creating new design in a South African context. Old and new merging. I want to sit at the edge of my seat and ooh and aah. I want to feel the need to whip out my sketch pad. I am hoping tomorrow’s forum will fulfil some of that, and not just be about speakers advertising. I am also looking forward to bumping into people I have not seen in a while, and meeting new people( networking? I am horrible at that stuff)
I have just seen we have a long weekend this weekend and I am looking forward to some me-time too. Saturday looks to be very busy with doing the admin of our lives…bank, cars and eye appointments (how I hate wearing glasses). I was thinking about going back to contact lenses, but I am worried about the horribly dry eyes I had since moving to Pretoria.
Father’s Day gifts are under control. Our framed footprint looks gorgeous. I have the things for the DVD pack and I just have to put them all together in a box this afternoon. We bought “Gravity”….it won a few awards so I am hoping hubby will enjoy it. We also bought popcorn, chips, chocolate, cookies and wine for hubby to enjoy with his DVD. Hubby is the type that will watch the same DVD about 50 times, he is the type of person DVD’s were made for.
Hubby also wants to enter a bread making competition. He needs to bake a loaf and if it is chosen he enters the finals and then it is a live bake-off to win one of four prizes. I am happy to see he still wants to do this, even though he no longer works as a baker. He is going to practice making the bread this weekend (well he knows how, but he wants a unique bread)….haha LCHF, we have to eat bread this weekend. After two weeks I will have bread again. I thought about suggesting gluten free bread, but I am pretty sure a competition loaf will need gluten. I have to be a supportive wife and eat the stuff and let him know what it is like.
I think I need to go work now. Have a fabulous weekend everyone and spoil the fathers you know.
