Catch-ups and giveaways

I had a great day today.  I met up with a couple of 'girls' that I used to work with at Fonterra.  It was great to catch up with them and to find out what was going on back at the 'ol joint.  It is pretty much same ol', same ol' - no surprises there.  I am so glad I got out.  M is about ready to 'pop' with baby #1.  She is a bit nervous, as she is single, but she will be fine.  S is as sporty as ever, and had plenty of gossip to share before M got there.  I try not to be big on gossip, and it really was one of the reason's I left, but I am ashamed to admit, I did enjoy hearing the tales about what was going on.  I have to say that it wasn't too much gossip, and it wasn't malicious, but it was gossip none-the-less.

Then, when I went to the supermarket, I bumped into another old colleague D.  It was a brief catch up with her (had frozens and it was HOT today), but she looked great, and it was definitely nice to see her.

I got home in time to cook dinner for TJL.  I had planned to attempt an apricot chicken dish, but I actually didn't have all the ingredients!  It's called shopping in a hurry as you didn't really want to be there, and therefore stuffing up.  I still cooked chicken (lemon garlic), but it wasn't anything 'new' liked I'd hoped.

I had two Facebook giveaways tonight.  One was for my Photography business (I had three calendars left from my Christmas giving), and one was for the Taranaki Mountainairs (local basketball team).  Again it was calendars.  My photography one went well, I had 14 contenders, so I drew three names out of a hat.  The basketball one only had 2 contenders and there were 3 calendars and 5 magnet calendars.  Oh well, I will be able to give them away at games.  It always amazes me about how hard it is to give away things at times.  At least I'm trying my best to promote the team, and that's the main thing.  It might take time but it all has to start from somewhere.
