Keeping busy

There is a list a mile long of things I should be dealing with while I am incapacitated but even though I can't get out to play, I still can't bring myself to do them. Who in their right minds wants to be filing paperwork or sorting through wardrobes to see what really needs chucked.
I found a great distraction - making a calendar for ma mammy's Christmas present. My parents, being typical of their generation  for Lanarkshire, don't really know their home country so I make sure they get to see my photies and at least get a wee peek at what they've missed out on. The only trouble was that I have thousands (and I really do mean thousands) of photos so it took me a wee while of systematically ploughing through them to find the best that I have managed to take. After whittling down to 134 the panel of judges, ie me and Steve, picked out the 12 that made the cut for mammy's calendar.

Next step was deciding on the company to produce it. With  so many out there now offering these services for not only calendars but cards, posters, mugs, photobooks, you can very easily get overwhelmed with it all and with all the little extra costs that manage to creep in as you get deeper into the transaction for some of them. Watch out for the hidden upload costs.

Being a typical blonde, I couldn't make up my mind so plumped for 2 different companies with two different styles. The first batch appeared today and I have to say I am impressed. I just hope my mammy is too.
