Ooh blogspot has gone all fancy and added loads of extra options for formatting posts!  Excellent.


Mark and I saw Rufus Wainwright play for free at HMV the other night – was lucky enough to notice it in the newspaper in the morning on the way to work.  Weirdly there is a CNN story about the gig here with a pic.  Some person has some pics on here.  He played Beauty Mark, Pretty Things, Vibrate, The Art Teacher and Dinner At Eight.  We are going to see him at the Barbican in October too.


I have tickets to see Trauma at the National Film Theatre on August 22nd with Colin Firth and Marc Evans (the director) hosting!  Yahoo!


Last weekend was my birthday.  Thank god that’s over.  And Friday before I found out that even though I didn’t think I wanted it or would get it, I’ve been made manager of my team at work.  New title: Development Manager, Community Learning.  EEK.  We’ll see how that goes.


Still working on the house and the bathroom.  In fact I have been grouting tiles and QUITE enjoying myself doing it.  No seriously. It’s aesthetically pleasing seeing the bathroom look a million times better once you clean the tile adhesive stuff off and fill in the gaps.  And Mark put up those flat halogen lights in the kitchen ceiling which looks incredibly better than the old line of flourescent.  Ugh.


My dad will be here in a week with the Scouts, and trying to get some stuff organised for him like randomly picture frames, wood for a display, a cooler, and on line grocery shopping.  Don’t call my mobile July 30 to August 16 as he will have it, not me!


Other than that, really looking forward to our holiday mostly just to get away from how busy work has been lately!  We get in to Toronto on July 30th at 10:30am ish after a HORRIBLE middle of the night flight.  See some of you very soon!
