The Bare Facts

Like so many things which go viral, the no makeup selfie trend went a bit awry. In many cases it lost it’s meaning completely as most never donated. It was so easy – just SMS ‘PinkDrive’ to 40158 (in South Africa) to donate R20.

In the UK millions were mistakenly donated to UNICEF due to someone sending out the wrong info. I guess as long as someone benefits, but it won’t be Cancer Research for a large chunk of sterling.

I published mine, and I never go anywhere without at least a bit of lippy! I took this late at night after Girl Geeks Dinner. And I’ve included my thank you text for donating. I hope others do too.



The Geek Girl Dinner was held at The Wild Fig. I love their food and the venue is lovely but there is no decent wifi there or even 3G reception, so holding social media type events there is rather frustrating to say the least!

There was no starter, the main was a lovely big chicken breast, stuffed with a red pepper and feta type mousse, served on a bed of mash and spinach.


The dessert was a tropical fruit roulade in a coconutty meringue. It was average to me, I found the texture off putting, but everyone else seemed to gobble it up!


There were the usual fab goody bags with gifts from the sponsors, chocolates, biscuits, Moroccan oil, magazines and other bits and pieces.

My little Pomeranian Pixie has injured her back. She went tumbling down a hill chasing an ibis, they are called hadedahs in SA as the noise they make sounds like that. Haaaadeeedahhhhh. It’s loud!

Anyway she fell on a huge rock and badly bruised her back. She can’t stand on her back legs so we took her to the vet and he kept her. She was there for 2 nights and now we have to keep her in a confined space to keep her from jumping or moving too much.

I’m very worried about her. The vet thinks she has just bruised a nerve not broken anything as he did X-rays. He thinks she will be fine but it’s so hard to see her suffer.

Work has been hectic, on Monday I have to deliver the Data Rules document, Data Issues log, the Data Migration Requirements document, the Data Quality report and Cleansing Strategy all to the client. Needless to say I’ve been busy 🙂

Tonight I’m meeting some of the George bookclub ladies at Peddlers On The Bend for dinner. The Italian there is lovely and we have such a laugh so it should be a fun night.

Enjoy your weekend all.
