Just a Minute - April

Time for another 'Just a Minute'

'Gentlemen and Player's by Joanne Harris. My sister lent me this at Christmas, so I thought it was about time I gave it a go. I must say I'm not overly impressed yet, but only a few chapters in, so will persevere. 

The year slip can it be almost May?!

The Easter holidays. Having 2 of my children at home and friends visiting  from Australia. 

 My eldest daughter took this photo of one of the Easter ornaments our friends brought us over from Australia, isn't it cute?!

A big bowl of Birds Custard. Nothing like it. YUM!  :)

Learning... Some new tricks in Photoshop CS5 thanks to a friend who has bought it and kindly lets me play with her on her computer.  Sigh.. One day I will upgrade my faithful CS3....I can dream!

 Planning... to keep all my accounts neat and tidy this year! Hmmm, wish me luck!
I have monthly folders for receipts etc, and have drawn up a book to keep all the individual totals in under headings. (Power/phone/petrol etc)
 I attempted this last year, but it didn't exactly happen quite as I meant it to...rummaging through a years worth of receipts, credit-card bills, statements and other paperwork to gather figures was not only time consuming, but about as enjoyable as pulling my toenails out.

If you’d like to do 'just a minute' on your own blog, or already do,  please leave the link in the comments I'd love to see! :)
