I just feel the need for an update and a few odds and ends.
First moan: I keep getting people wanting to write 'guest posts'. Now why on earth would anyone want to do that? Why would I want anyone to do that? My blog is what it is. If some of the posts are not up to scratch it doesn't matter..I don't necessarilly want other people sticking their oar in because then it wouldn't be mine.
Second moan while I'm at it (and I've been thinking about this for quite some time so I may as well get it out here and now) When we were in Norwich we went to the Loch Fyne Seafood Restaurant. We'd been to the one on Loch Fyne once and loved it so thought we'd try it. No table for 45 minutes so we went off for a drink, came back and were seated by a bossy young woman who made much of the fact that she was going to be 'Looking after' us. Well call me old fashioned but I don't want to be 'looked after ' in a restuarant I just want nice food to come without having to wait ANOTHER 45 minutes. Obviously her idea of 'looking after' wasn't the same as my idea of 'looking after'. There was much jumping about and asking how we were 'doing' and a very mediocre meal.
Ahh thats better.
Now for something good.
The blue tits are having a busy time keeping up with their noisy brood flying in and out every two minutes. (Its a good job they're not at the Loch Fyne) and yesterday there was a 'beak at the window ' moment when one of the littlies stuck its head up and looked out of the hole. You could tell it was a babe because it was all yellow beak with that silly cartoon expression that only baby birds can do!
Something else good: My son ..(oh aren't sons lovely?)came and rigged up the telly in my sewing room with a digital aerial so now I can watch
I was needing a way of hiding all the wires which accompany this major breakthrough, so while looking for an extension cable in the 'spare room' (not really spare..full of 'stuff' which is the boys equivalent of my stash) when I found a box containing the following: One National geographic Fleece ( free gift when I subscribed years ago); one old 'Bench' fleece; two pots of spike your hair up stuff; a jar of pennies; and here's where it gets good....a craft knife, a roll of wide masking tape, a roll of duck tape and a tape measure. Yes there's gold in them thar hills..... I greedily took them from my sons' stash and added these last items to my own. Yes that apostrophe is correct..two sons..two stashes all in one room.
And finally a plea. have you ever lost a blogger?
I read one last year and have completely lost it.
It was when I was contemplating doing a certain craft fair and I was convinced I'd had a long discussion with this particular blogger about it but then she wasn't there.
Here are the details:
Makes printed letters and cards.
Has wavy blonde hair longish.
Blogged about doing well at a craft fair maybe 8 months ago. Said something like "I realised maybe I could make a living doing this'
Wrote a post about how to present yourself at a craft fair.Said you are part of the product and should look the part.
Is it you?
Do you know who it is?
(I feel I should add here that I only want to know who it was...I'm not a stalker. Or even a lurker...I was having a conversation with someone who I thought was this blogger and turned out to be a different one!)
Its driving me almost as mad as trying to find the film with two little boys playing in the snow and putting an important telegram in a round tin and losing it in the snow that I watched hundreds of years ago. (Well half a hundred years ago)
But I've given up on that one.
If you have been...thanks for reading.
Your a star..or a galaxy ...
