Finally I am back in the land of the living and ready to give my blog some of the love it has been missing.
Such neglect. If there was a home for neglected blogs, I think I would have had the officials knocking on my door by now.
I am back after a crazy, crazy hen/bachelorette weekend in Manchester that literally took me over a week to recover from, never again shall I drink and dance til dawn. – Don’t hold me on that one…
I came back to a house that needed a clean from top to bottom. This isn’t a reflection on my lovely H2B’s housekeeping skills (which are in fact brilliant), I just got a bee in my bonnet and wanted EVERYTHING sorted and spotless. Does anyone else get into these moods?
I need to sort out the sale of my car as H2B bought me a new one as a surprise on Friday (I finally have a decent sized family car), no longer will shopping or camping trips involve burying a 9 year old boy in outdoor regalia or mountains of produce.
The Stepford household had a 5 year old sister and 9 year old son to entertain for the weekend – which required round #2 of previous house clean.
Trying to set up Skype to have a long-awaited conversation with my friend back in Australia, I’ve never Skype’d before and kinda nervous about it – I’ve never felt the urge to don make up and blow-out my hair before answering the phone, so why do I with this? Will it become less important? “Hello.. please pardon the fact that I look like crap. How are you by the way?”
I am also desperately trying to chase friends for their input for a gift/photo book for my best friend who is getting married in 45 days. This will then need to be edited/designed, printed and delivered. Prayer request please…. It is going to take a miracle.
In the meantime, I am still working on my book, reading as many books as I can (something my ‘how-to write a book’ book told me to do), trying to lose some weight and exercise… and fabulously failing.
Phewee said Hong-Kong Foowee.
So I have a great big list of posts (which currently sit half-finished) that will be up over the next couple of days, so sit tight and please forgive me for being a bad blogger!
Here are a few fun things that have kept me going and entertained me over the last week.
See y’all soon!
