snuffles

Today I would like to extend a warm welcome to the two people who came here via Google looking for 'nagging secretaries' and for 'snuff sites'.

Hi!

I don't think that you found what you were looking for, but I hope you enjoyed yourselves anyway.

Also, 'snuff sites' chappie - in a completely loving and non-judgemental way - UGH!

I am working today. Oh yes. I am doing the VAT return, aiming to close off the books for our end-of-financial-year, sending out P60s and payslips to the casual crew and getting together a list of email addresses for our first email newsletter later this month.

I have also done a quotation. My very, very first.

I am so proud. It's for a wedding next summer and I have massively, massively overestimated the amounts so that I don't end up in a hole in six months when they come back to us and say "well, you said we could have a giraffe in box with a window for 99p including delivery".

It wasn't as hard as I thought it was going to be though - the plan is for me to take over more of this side of the business, so that B can concentrate on designs and actually going out there and doing the work.

In other news, a couple came this afternoon to view the house. They are talking about coming back for a second viewing. I have passed the point of getting excited about any of this now - I just want it all over with, so I can stop feeling stressed.

More tea now, I think.

  1. Good for you, doing the quote. I hate hate HATE doing quotes. Blech.

    I can also sympathize re: selling your house. We've decided to try to rent ours out ourselves for this coming sabbatical year, and I haven't been able to sleep past 3 am for 5 days now. People are interested, but I want it done and I want it done NOW!

    Enjoy your tea. (I think I need a cup, too.)

  3. I hate doing quotes, especially as it's not my money. Do I go over or under what I think?

    Oh, and I've had "Gentlemen pissing on Gentlemen" today. I shudder to think what he thought on my site, and indeed what state of undress he was in when he found my site.

  5. Well, indeed! I was just looking for people to link to my snuff and nasal tobacco pages!

  6. (Ha! Here you are on blogexplosion, what a nice surprise to run into you here while randomly surfing.. that felt like running into an old friend at the supermarket or somewhere.)

    Awesome, and a cuppa sounds really good right now.

  8. Imperatrix - yesterday's people are coming back for a second viewing at 10 this morning - I slept much better last night. Sympathies.

    Rhys - surely that's NOT a Gentlemanly thing to do?

    Graeme - hello, welcome and abject apologies! I clearly have a nasty mind :(.

    Chandira - I quite like blogexplosion, I do it periodically; good way to find new sites!

  10. Definitely more tea called for, and lots of positive thinking (in a not-too-concentrated-or-sod's-law-will-descend-sort -of-way) re the viewers - repeat after me: we will sell this sodding house and I will remain an ocean of zen-like tranquility.

    Working yet? ;)
