I just love Alice Bradley! She makes me feel so, well,  normal!!   She writes the blog “Finslippy” that I told you about yesterday.  Well it’s late-ish at night – for normal people anyway!  Around about now I’m just getting warmed up ‘cos I just love this time between 10pm and 2am.  My late night = 3am….

HOWEVER…I am trying to be more “normal” (whatever the doozy that is????) and I thought I’d try heading off to the “snore zone” a bit earlier than usual…a lot earlier actually…………………….. ANYWAY – yet again I move ever so slightly off topic……….

Last thing I do is check my email, and Facebook (just in case someone loves me or wants to put in an order for a thousand beads) and WordPress Blog (this is in the pathetic hope that someone, anyone really, might have had the desire to attach a comment to what generally amounts to my dubious attempts at what I think might pass for wry humour…..)  I checked Alice’s Blog and have to quote this little gem because I can SO relate to this….

“……I’ll avoid work. I’ll dawdle and daydream and check my email like it’s the only thing keeping me alive”.

Don’t you just love it!!!   She cracks me up!

Just a short note….I am having a bit of a clean-out of some of my beads on Etsy – they are the ones marked “CLEARANCE”.  I’ve already sold a pile of them (thank you wonderful customers!!!) and will be marking down more in the coming days/week.  I will be getting to Artfire and my website as well – as soon as possible – so you might like to check there as well…..some great bargains to be had.

And with that, I bid you goodnight and sweet dreams (for those of you going nightie-night).

Cheers

Sandy

Ok, ok….I know I should be crossing things of my “list”….AND I HAVE!!!!…..but I found another funny blog – especially for Mums!  NOW…I will make some progress on my list.

I’ve been doing my morning surfing exercises….surfing the web that is! He he – it’s about the closest thing to the physical stuff you’ll actually find me doing….and I’m pretty sure that typing on a keyboard uses up some calories!! At least 5 or 6 anyway…..Anyway, I’m not sure why I think I have the time to waste browsing aimlessly, checking news articles on some poor hippo that got shot after being tranquilized because it woke up when water got up its nose and then attacked the vet that was trying to help it out…Dumb hippo! Doesn’t it know they were only trying to help???? (Relax…I have my tongue firmly in my cheek….I don’t really mean that the hippo is stupid in any way!)

Isn’t it funny how we have a “To Do” list at least a mile long, yet we either start with chores at the bottom of the list or with ones that didn’t even make it onto the list??  Or is that just me??  (Hmmm – about that time management course……)

Anyway, I digress, which is completely normal for me…..I found this doozie of a blog, which I will put a link to here and also on my fave blogs list on the right hand side. This is dedicated to all you Mums out there…I’m sure you can fully relate to much of what is written!! Happy reading!

I will now go back to my “list” and continue hanging out the washing….etc, etc

Have a good one!

Yep….found out the name of the “plague” that’s been hounding us for nearly 6 weeks now! It’s called Whooping Cough….and it’s nasty, to say the least! Actually, I’m pretty good – it’s the boys who have copped the worst of it. It’s very surprising that the young fella has been quite sick because he’s actually had all of his shots as well as a booster about 18 months ago. First lot of blood tests came back negative for the dreaded disease so we thought we were in the clear…..however…..just got a phone call earlier from the doc’s office asking us all to come in (dum de dum dum…can’t you just hear the ominous music??)…couldn’t tell us over the phone….sort of thought there might be men in white coats waiting to “irradiate” us in one of those special tents they set up for highly infectious notifiable diseases…….
Anyway, right about now we’re all “rattling” ‘cos we’re on so many pills. Hoping to kick this in the butt and be back on track next week.
Have a good one!
Cheers
Sandy
