SWOTVAC - Keep Calm and Carry On @ Monday, June 04, 2012
This week is SWOTVAC. What does that mean? To me with a business background: strengths, weakness, threats, opportunities... I'm lost. Fernando says it means 'Study w/o teachers "vacation"'. :P Not sure what's happened but there isn't much study going on, just a lot of avoidance... The dr says it's the stress that's getting to me.
Anyway this week
Friday we met with the new therapist, and bought some art stuff. The glue and glitter were $2 each, yarn 80c, crown $3 and all the scrapbooking stuff and two notebooks were $1 each. The crown (not pictured), the top part is perfect for creating the template for the Q of Hearts crown. I'll make a replica in gold as well. Yarn, I don't knit, but it would be great to use a ribbon for tying up presents wrapped in brown kraft paper.
Recently in the past couple months I've been painting my nails weekly
Not sure what the deal is with long nails, and why girls like them so much. But I prefer my short nails, it doesn't gather as much dirt under them and I can play the piano and violin without scratching anything, and I don't hurt myself or risk broken nails in sport. I may not be able to do a french mani or decorate the tops, but it's worth it when you weigh the frustration of nails getting in the way of life.
It's not blurry on my desktop, but somehow blogger's done something to it here...
In the later part of the week I received tickets to the Good Food & Wine Show, Australia's largest consumer food and wine exhibition. Won them through a contest, 47 entered, 3 wins, 6.38% of scoring tickets. We went on Saturday, jas (who has a better knowledge of cooking, and did a full-time cooking course) and I, and we tried lots of things, bought candy (me), showbags (him, there was no chocolate in it...) and saw a cooking demo by Maggie Beer (who jas was very keen to see). There'll be a full post on it later in the week. Tickets thanks to Thanh of I Eat Therefore I Am, a food blogger takes takes amazing pictures, and reviews more of the moderate-higher priced restaurants.
Yes my exams are this week, but the expo is related to work. In the events exam there's a part on expos.
This week I learnt not to have plans, full day plans, for both days of the weekend, as my health doesn't allow it. I missed work today :( which I was looking forwards to, an annual event - the event, not working that is. AH has a massive sale on, but from the discussion all the accessories were tangled and there were children running around destroying everything. As it's a warehouse sale, anything goes, unlike the boutique, no children and food allowed. The worse scenario is a child with a ice cream cone, 2 or more scoops, near expensive ($100+) clothing.
Vintage Block Prints $10 from Typo
Clearitonline is a fantastic place to buy brands on sale, free shipping if you spend over a certain amount too I think. Delivery & Service is a hit/miss according to forum discussions. I scored a Alannah Hill coat today for a great price, considering the design and quality. A month or so ago I got the Once Upon A Time Coat in black for $500 - on sale at the boutique. On clearance sale I was very lucky to get it in red/cherry for only $125, there was only one left in my size. At the moment they only have the dark green ones left in the smaller sizes.
Once Upon A Time Coat - Cherry
