Yup! I have that feeling of self satisfaction that you get when you have accomplished something.
October is a hellish month for me. Expensive! VERY expensive!
I have my fellers birthday, my dad's birthday, one of my (soon to be) sister-in-laws birthday (today actually) and my step-brothers birthday this month. And this year Jacquie and David are getting married this month.
But I have been a busy bunny! I have ordered and got Yorkie's gifts via Play.com (a handfull of obsucre DVDs he had coverted for some time), I have ordered my dad's gifts (books on B&Bs in France, slightly tongue in cheek, but an honest and caring present I think) from Amazon. I have texted Jenny a happy birthday wish (foolishly left it to Yorkie to sort out his sisters card / gift... not been done!). Antoni is a bit of a mystry. I shall have to speak to mum about him. Maybe a gift voucher for HMV or somthing.
Jacs and Dave are asking for money as a wedding pres. They have (or are getting, I think) a savings account for a deposit on a house, so anything at all will help them there. Very good idea I think. After 10 years together the traditional wedding gifts of tea sets etc are a bit pointless! So as long as I have some money in my account I don't need to worry too much about sorting someting out there.
I have also completed the first week of my OU study guide and have made a start on week 2's work, AND I have started work on the first major assignment we've been given. Half way through that so far.
AND I have cleaned and (hopefully) de-fleaed the front room (down side to having such a warm september... the fleas the poor cat can't seem to shift regardless of flea collar and 'on the spot' solution - which only makes her sick anyway - had all but taken over the front room. I couldn't invite anyone round, or relax or anything. URGH!) ready for mum coming over on Sunday.
Plus a number of random web based business type things that had to be done and now I am shattered!
I feel very satisfied with myself!
