This week wasn't a great week for finishing anything to the last dot, but I managed at least some of the stuff I'd planned to do.

I did find a lot of exciting things in the letter though; thanks Thanya! Your block and siggy are so beautiful! (and the extras very welcome!)
Not bad at all if you consider the amount of overtime I put in at work and coming home more dead than alive every day. After 10 hours of statistics I barely know my own name :-) Never mind, the Basic Score Cards are finished, my boss is happy and so am I.
