I thought I had better hurry up and get this blog post done, before my internet dies again. My internet is like a sick child, the moment it sees a Dr it is right as rain and proving you a liar, then it has you up at 3 am again with a fever. I harassed my ISP on twitter today, because I never get any luck by phoning and I had a nice call back, so hopefully something will happen soon.
Today was a big day for me at work, it was my last day working my current hours, my request to change my hours from 10-2 5 days a week to 8-4.30 3 days a week has been approved and the outcomes are great...much higher job satisfaction, more money and now I have 2 entire days to dedicate to JustJussi, instead on a couple of hours either side of my work day, because even though I work 10-2, I arrive early, or stay late, plus driving and parking etc, so my 4 hours work cost me upwards of 6 hours per day. I'm looking forward to those 2 days so much, the last time I had a full day on JustJussi I came up with Katie, Aria, Evie and another design, imagine what I can accomplish with 2 days a week!
Back to the contest, thanks to everyone who entered last week, I loved reading your pet stories, we are so lucky to have these animals in our lives. I'll send the .pdfs out via Ravelry.
This week's question is very trivial, I was thinking about what to make for dinner - Charlotte and I (and all of the girls) love noodles, so I wanted to make Bami Goreng, but Flash does not like noodles, and it's a friday, so I want us all to be able to relax and have a nice, enjoyable evening eating a dinner we all enjoy. I have made Chicken parmigiana instead and will serve it with pesto spaghetti...and thats what gets me! My husband loves spaghetti and dislikes all other noodles, whether Japanese, Chinese, Hungarian or Thai...whereas I love Asian style noodles (especially wide rice noodles) but find pasta hard going sometimes (but I do like it) and it's not even that he has a pedestrian palate...he enjoys almost every cuisine he has tried, and spends a lot of time in Asia eating everything except noodles!
So my question is:
Do you like or loathe noodles...and WHY!?
The prize this week is a copy of my Plum Blossom cardigan - I love this sweater, it is girly with being frilly!
