First of all- I had typed a witty and amusing post (yep, tis true) - went to press publish but my fist hit some random key on the keyboard and deleted my post. Not amused.
Second technological gripe - my broadband connection has disappeared at home. Vanished. Poof! Gone. Hence no blog entry since last week (see there's a valid excuse - I bet you all thought I was just being a baaaaad blogger didn't you?!). Suprisingly, the BT man called out today (on a saturday?!!!! We weren't expecting him until Monday) to check the line - but he's as mystified as we are. So quite when I'll be back online at home is anyone's guess. So here I am at you-know-where having a quick catch up with you all (well, seeing as I'm the unlucky cabbage to have landed the shift when the clocks go back I thought I'd do something worthwhile with my extra hour. A 13 hour shift I ask you - isn't there some kind of law against this?! Woe is me and my tired, withering body).
And the other bad thing about no net connection at home is that I can't share any piccies with you - and I've actually done some scrapping this week (erm, which is probably due to the fact that the net went down in the first place, and that I wasn't sat at the PC for hours in a trance as per usual). So hopefully everything will magically be up and running all hunky dory just as magically as it all broke down, until then you can look forward to the scrapping delights I have to share with you. Titter ye not my pretties, for one of these pages is quite unlike my usual style, and won a little prize for third place in the South Wales Crop challenge, might I add. I'll just tease you with the words "random" and "bright" for now. Nuff said really.
So ya, twas the South Wales Crop today. As well as taking part in the challenge, I taught my Autumn Days class, which seemed to go down well. Thank you to Chrissie for asking me to have a go, Gems for doing a fabby ole job as kit giver-outer, and to all the lovely scrumptious South Wales crop-goers who had a go and managed to keep up with what the heck I was gabbering on about !!
Gems and I had a nice likkle catch up, and much scrapbooking, shopping and scoffing of pineapple chunk sweets took place. Despite Gems insisting that she didn't like the sweets - she did a pretty good job of munching half a bag of 'em when she thought I wasn't looking - didn't ya?!!! I saw you missus!!! *wink*
And the final piece of news - today is finally the day of my sweetie likkle sisters' due date - but I must admit after all this "oooh, it's a big bump- she'll never go the whole 9 months" - I'm starting to wonder if the little blighter will ever show up! I'm impatient me! And so is she at the point bless her. I even dragged her around Ikea for hours yesterday in the hope that the long walk (and the fact that we were 45 miles away from home) would shake the baby out - or at least make it get a wriggle on. But no. I love her sooooo much and I know when likkle bubba does make his or her appearance she's gonna make a fabby mummy - I can't wait!
So.............to pass the time and amuse myself until bubba DOES arrive - I'm gonna open a little game on here to guess the weight of the baby! The blogeroonie with the nearest guess will win a little scrapbooking treat. All you have to do is log your guess in reply to THIS post, between now and when I break the news that baby has arrived *grin*
Get guessing!!! xxxxx
