Last night was Kitchen Disco night at Chez Nan, where we have friends over, eat, dance, drink and sing into the spatula. The food was up to the usual high standard, with Lena's stuffed pepper debut, but this week the Mummies didn't do much dancing, opting instead to collapse in a heap and plug the PS2 in for the kids. We were all exhausted. The kids were thrilled, and got square eyes playing video games instead of running in and out and falling out of the tree.
I temped this week, my first temp gig since I had Chas. Temping is a great way to work! The agency tests your skills and you get put in a file marked 'Awesome'. Then a company calls them up and says "OMG I need someone Awesome, QUICK! to sort out this thing." and your agency says "I have just the gal for you!"
So off you go to spend three days or three weeks or whatever doing something new and interesting, and you get paid, and then you say, "OK, I'm going to London next week so I won't be available," and they say "Cool, see you when you get back." And then you get another new and exciting job for a few days, or a few weeks.

Work Your Way Magazine, which is geared toward freelancing mums in the UK. It's a great new magazine, and I am really proud to be involved! I've written a "special feature on how mums are leading the way as ethical and social entrepreneurs and a fascinating report on female entrepreneurs in the Carribbean". Doesn't that sound great? I will link to issue 2 when it eventually goes online. I can't wait to get my own copy in the mail! For the next issue, I'm writing another fabulous feature. Stay tuned!
So yes, I have been busy.
And, did I mention we are off to London for a week of Cousin Awesomeness and Long Museum Days? Yay! What are you up to for the half-term holiday or just the weekend? And what have you achieved lately that you're proud of? Spill it, reader!
