Four Things

Four Jobs I’ve Had

1. Saturday casual at The Cookie Man – during quiet times I had to wear a paper hat and give out cookie samples to passing shoppers…totally embarrassing for a 15yr old!
2. Plate Smasher – a casual job during University days. After stocktaking, we had to smash any left over stock with a hammer so all the limited editions of Collector plates that had already been sold would one day become collectable. At the time I thought the plates were tacky but Im sure Id be keen to have some of those plates now.
3. Hotel Receptionist – lots of unusual requests like 4 to a room for a few hours (what were they planning to do? Huh??)
4. Accountant

London – once I get over the jet lag I’ll be right to go - so much to see and do!
New York – cant wait to visit Helena Christensen’s flea shop Butik, eat at Les Halles (love Anthony Bourdain) and maybe bump into The Sartorialist?

    That Enid Blyton image is fantastic. I love the quite feeling about it.
    I would love to go to Japan as well...with empty big suit cases so I could carry a lot back :)

  2. Your Four Favourite Desserts are something we definitely have in common...:)

    plate smasher? what a fantastic job!

    I can't believe you were paid to do that. They should give them to hyperactive children to let off steam. MIne are bored of the holidays alread!

  5. The Sound of Music is one of my faves too! I have a little(hopefully ) fun event going on at my place,won't you join in?

  6. Smashing plates, and no doubt eating all the broken cookies, how cool is that. Gwenny and I also adore The Sound of Music. And talking of Lindt chocolate my children received some in the post from their aunt today. My son had a tin snowman and my daughter a tin russian doll both filled with lindt chocolate. Yummy!!!

  7. This is the cutest damn picture I've ever seen!!!


Thanks for stopping by and taking time to comment!! i really appreciate it!
