Scraps, Work, atbp.

I never imagined how scrapbooking could take as much of my time that I even have no time for blogging. In return, I have 20 lovely scraps hanging on my kitchen window: from Louna's first smile to her first birthday. I even bought the latest version of Photoshop to really indulge myself to this latest passion. Though it's really fun to create, I have to admit that it's equally tiring. So to unwind, frenchguy asked me to go down south on which I readily said yes with the condition to meet fellow pinay bloggers. That was great, I finally had my first ever EB with Haze, Makis and Jhona! Nice to meet you ladies, that was fun!

Louna singing, obviously enjoying this magnificent view.

But to be honest, work has been keeping me busy too. In fact, after my maternity leave, I was more or less a lazy couch potato at work, dealing with nonsense projects. In consequence, I had no salary raise which is quite normal. I then talked to my boss that Louna's big enough now and I wanted to reboost my career, which meant I needed more work. From then on, I learned another lesson: be careful with what you're wishing for. It could come true. Darn, I'm busy!

As if being busy at work and home aren't enough to keep me turning, I received an appointment last week for an interview at the prefecture. The problem is, I won't be available on the proposed date so I hurriedly went to the prefecture first hour the next day to get another appointment. I was then surprised by all the other applicants crowding the entrance so I moved to get closer just to be pushed after by the applicants-turned-rugbymen when the door finally opened. Para akong nasa LRT! The funnier thing is that these rugbymen tried to block the machine distributing the tickets. But these stupid bastards pushed the wrong button so I ended up 2nd on the list. haha! Gusto ko silang dilaan, bwahahaha!

Ooppps, by the way, Nao tagged me weeks ago and asked me to lie 5x. Bad girl! Though I really tried hard to lie as much, hindi po talaga ako sinungaling (hehe). So now, believe my stories or not, I inserted some lies in between. Don't count 5, I don't think I reached the target.

Belated happy birthday to Louna. She's adorable and looking at your video, she seems to enjoy the outdoors!

Hope to see samples of your scraps :D

Makis said...

Had a great time too, ana! Hope it won't be the last! Grabe, superwoman ka talaga! And you should have made an in your face gesture to them in the prefecture, dang you were really lucky with that!

Nakuha mo new appointment sa prefet?
Mostly, yang mga rugbymen na nabanggit mo, nga nuissance yan sila mostly. Mga wala convocation, pupunta ng prefet para lang : "bigyan ng papel," LOL
Ganun din dito sa Nice, naalala ko, si Michel taga takbo sa line para mauna! ako naman, walking in the moon,parang prinsesa.hihihi!

Hope u get ur ten years na, istorbo rin ang pag punta sa prefet every year, lalo na busy ka rin sa work and sa personal things.

Hingin mo na kasi, kamo, marunong ka pa mag french sa mga nag french citizen na, LOL
all the best...

Belated happy birthday to your lovely baby girl!

I think this is a lie:

I then talked to my boss that Louna's big enough now and I wanted to reboost my career, which meant I needed more work.

Ana, one of our hot selling products is the scrapbooking kits. I would always wonder who on earth has the time for this SCRAP (minus the s, hehe). Btw, I can't see the image so I can't comment. I plan to ask my boss for more work too once Evan is bigger, but your entry scared me haha.

Parang kelan lang you first broke the news that you were pregnant in ASAWA :)

Analyse said...

Thanks for the greetings! Yep, Louna already turned 1 yo. That was fast!!!

Jo and Linnor, I posted my scraps at Louna's sites.

Makis, I was smirking, bwahahaha.. hirap pigilin e.

Ate Amy, yep, syempre nagpepretend to be anghel ako pag nasa prefet hehehe.. but i guess they understood the necessity.. i showed them my plane ticket!!

Haze, already in Thailand, sorry for being quiet, i was super busy before leaving. I saw Mimi's pix, cute nya pag nakangiti ha, she should do it more often.

psst, one point for you, u got it right. hope to see you soon.. and by the way, if you pass by besancon without saying coucou to Dijon.. magtatampo talaga ako..

Nao, hindi po yan hehe. ill send the address soon ;)

Sachiko, not that one ;)

Geri, haha, yep, better be careful with what you're wishing for.

i went to Louna's site and your baby is so beautiful..Happy 1st bday to Louna! The scrapbooking looks great. For a person who is both busy at work and home, not sure if you actually did 20 altogether. Is that the lie?

analyse said...

Hi Leah, thanks. And yes, that's one of the lies..
