Last night, I did something I've not done since I was a teenager. I watched Eurovision. It wasn't as bad as I expected - most of it was quite bland - but I thought it was OK. I liked the self mocking humour of the hosts, they were very good - some of the songs were actually OK, the runners up - Netherlands, were brilliant, lovely Alt-Country number, astonishingly pretty girl and a simple song that reminded me a lot of Reece Witherspoon in 'Walk The Line'. It was a given that the winner would be Austria - right from the start. The biggest irritation was Graham Norton, not quite as clever or funny as he wants us to believe - rather sneering and bitchy with neither the wit nor intelligence to make it work. The British song was rubbish, and she looked a fright. It was weird seeing all the little intro films, during the day - everyone looked young and attractive, on stage they all looked old, heavy and hard.
I seem to have picked up a bit of local design work, more about that at a later date - but have a meeting on Monday with some new people, could be a really great project - probably no money in it.
Last night I gave the dogs ham bones, as a result they were quiet and content during the day - they over active at night. I had to rescue the small dog, she managed get trapped in the toilet - I have no idea why or how, head some noise upstairs and the sound of the lid banging down on top of her. After that - the first thing she did was wee in the dining room - first time in ages - I chastised her - she knew it was wrong and went sulking off, and then proceeded to we in the same spot 3 more times during the night. I despair.
I need to go out later - possibly to Eastbourne, not sure - I suppose I need a bit of time out. I was really tired yesterday, I've come to realise that I need at least one day off every week - preferably two.
