It’s my fault…I confess it all. I was the one who was saying that it felt like spring, and of course today we have gale force winds and terrible rainstorms, chance of flooding in parts of England. It’s my fault, and I’m sorry.
I am still working my way through the product images, which are named in alphabetical order. I’m still in the “C”s. God, this is going to take forever, and I think I’m developing carpal tunnel. Fortunately a lot of them were saved at 300 px/inch, so I can crop and resize them without too much trouble. The ones they did remember to compress I have to do from the hi-rez CDs, which were done by the Mac guy. So, I have to try the different formats to open them in, sometimes TIFFs, sometimes different types of EPS files until I find one that I can open on my PC in Photoshop. *sigh* What a nightmare.
Mother’s Day this Sunday, and we’re having Phil’s parents over for dinner. (Mother’s Day, or Mothering Sunday, is on a different day here. Father’s Day is the same date.) So we have to clean the house – since I started this job there hasn’t been any extra energy to spend on housecleaning, so things have slipped. Normally I can’t bear it if the house is messy or dishes are unwashed – it feels as though life is slipping out of control. But right now I’m too tired to care.
Someday we have to clean the pigeon shit from the front of the house, as well. There is a nest of pigeons that are driving us mad…we’ll have to rent a ladder tall enough to reach three stories, and the little bastards keep having baby pigeons continually. You know the joke about never knowing where baby pigeons come from, because you never see them? Well, come to our house. They are raising babies all year round, without cease. I can’t believe they don’t seem to stop at all. When you unlock the front door, you can see the little heads peering over, looking at you. I am so tempted to get a slingshot and take a couple of the filthy little creatures out. Sorry, I’m an animal lover, but there are limits.
I’ve blathered on enough. Back to work. :)
