Last week I confess there had been some
My boss and the other two managing partners of the firm I work for were coming to dinner on Thursday night to celebrate Thanksgiving - not usual for Aussies but there is a US connection with one of the partners, his (grown up) kids are all still in Boston and times like now he misses them madly, so we have started a little tradition to celebrate Thanksgiving with him as his surrogate family.
So, visualise clean tidy house ready for the boss.
Onto the scene Thursday arvo comes a location scout wanting to assess my house for a film shoot - a short film to star Cate Blanchett, Richard Roxburg and Jackie Weaver - woohoo - star struck!! best of all it was only two days and paid $1000/day.
Beauty!! (we thought) here's a nice little Christmas bonus. Happily we convinced ourselves that the money was in the back pocket already....Not so, sadly. The location scout called back yesterday and they have decided my house is too tidy. So, I believe I will officially stop being neat - it's too expensive.
Better news was, my first ever effort of cooking Thanksgiving turkey was a huge success. Yay me.
MO workshop tomozz. yippie.
have a great weekend
