This is a shameless plug for my sister's new maternity and nursing clothing webstore, Hello Poppet
It won't actually be of interest to most of you, because a) you're probably not in the market for maternity wear, and b) she only ships within Australia, but you should totally go check it out anyway because she made the scrolling banners herself and a lot of the webdesign, and it looks pretty. Also, if you happen to know anyone who might be interested in purchasing maternity or nursing wear in Australia, please pass the link on. We're trying to get as much word-of-mouth promotion as possible, and the store's only been operational for a week, so I figure it may need a bit of a leg-up. :)
How are you all? I am terribly unwell, myself. ('Terribly' is an overstatement, I have a mild cold.) I keep getting sick this winter, every two or three weeks I catch something else and it is really annoying, and I keep missing days of work, and then I feel like I look like a slacker and worry that my boss will get pissed off at me, even though I am legitimately sick and trying to be responsible by not spreading my germs around to my workmates, and also my boss is nice, but I worry anyway.
And speaking of work: I am currently working part-time at two jobs (both an hour's drive from home, in opposite directions), and doing occasional days at a casual job (walking distance from my house, which is a novel experience), and I have confirmed work for the next six months, which is a nice change from the past 12 months (or 16 months, or whatever it is by now) where I had either no work, or only one part-time job that continually faced the prospect of running out every three months. So having an actual semi-secure income for a while is a nice feeling.
But how are you all?
