I've been told on many occasions lately that lots of you girls do read my blog, but can't comment for various reasons. It's lovely to be assured that you are STILL reading!
Believe it or not, I need that reassurance some days, cos there are days when I feel stupid posting such boring crap day after day, and I do wonder who is still reading my drivel?
I've been blogging for almost 7 years! 7 years of sharing the good, the bad and the downright ugly... in an honest and 'call a spade a spade' sorta way. That is just who I am.
I have learnt that there are trolls out there who would love to bring me or my family members down. For whatever reason. And I still struggle sometimes to not react in a negative way... but I do think I am getting better at being more objective in how I deal with negative comments.
How someone comments is up to them, this is an 'open' blog after all, anyone can read it, and anyone can comment.
BUT I KNOW that if I were to be standing right in front of one of the 'ANON' nasties, they would NEVER dare to be so rude as to say to my face what they 'say' in comment form.
They are cowards. Some have signed their 'name'... yeah right. I could call myself The Bloody Queen in a comment, but we all know I'm not! Just as I know giving yourself a 'name' still makes you an Anonymous Bitch.... whoops, that just slipped out... *smiles*
I too can be a bitch sometimes.
But the point I'm trying to make is I really appreciate everyone who reads, and everyone who leaves a comment... because you must care enough to bother. Even the ANON's. Thanks so much for caring. ♪ lah ♪ lah ♪ la ♪ la ☻☺☻
Something very interesting happens on days like YESTERDAY....
Did I get ya with me Title today? FORNICATING BEARS?
Ha ha... Stew, me darling hubby, made the bed yesterday morning, and this is how he 'arranged' the Teddy's:
YEP... he's a dirty, dirty little boy is my man. ☻
TODAY: well it depends on the weather. If it's nice Bex and I are going over to visit Lacy and Keera, maybe wander around the Mall again. Botany is such a lovely area.
If the weather is crap, we will stay home and I will do some more sewing. Bex will no doubt do some more crochet.
I might as well show you the block I got finished last night too:
KAREN in Wellington: I do get my block patterns off the internet.
ABOVE: As you can see, I have a few! Oh and Karen I am using the gorgeous blue batik fabrics you gave me on these placemats too.
Now, before I go ...
ABOVE: a cute collage of Dante in my sewing 'room' last night. He is into EVERYTHING now... he's on the verge of crawling. He gets on his hands and knees and rocks... sometimes he forgets what he's doing and he 'rocks' his head up and down instead of his body! It is really hysterical to watch him sometimes.
Right, I'm outta here for now... I'm off to make the lunches, feed the dogs, bla bla bla.. you know the drill. Oh and I shall check out the weather...
Change of Plans: Griffin is home with a sore throat, so we are going to the Dr's.
***I am posting your parcels today BLONDIE and ENZ.
Griffin thankfully does not have a Strep throat, but his throat is inflamed so he will be staying home for today at least.
I am now spending my morning sorting out the cupboard under the stairs and the roof attic.
It certainly doesn't take long for those areas to get all cluttered and untidy, especially when everyone (me included) just throws shit in there willy-nilly.
Ummm... hells bells! It's already lunchtime! Where the hell has the morning gone???
Four hours later... and I have made another placemat block...
ABOVE: another one done, only I made a major BOO BOO with this one. At the top/middle I trimmed it too close to the blue point, so when I sew it onto the backing I will lose the damn point. Grrrr... It makes me so crabby when I stuff up like that.
I'm now going to start making dinner...
So... after getting a steak 'n' kidney stew on, I went up into the attic and started sorting stuff out. I got to about half way done when I almost fell through the ceiling onto the garage floor! No, my foot didn't go through (thank goodness), but I did go through the particle board that was on top of the joists. Derrrr... gave me a big fright and I stopped.
It's darn hard work up there, trying not to put a foot wrong, and doing it all while bent over due to the roof sloping down. I can stand up in the middle, but sure in hell not all the way around.
I might do the other half in a week or two, which will give me time to get over the fright I got and the terror of having to climb down the ladder again. I swear my legs were shaking so much I really didn't know if I could climb down again!
It was good though, I found a few things I really wanted to find, and lots of stuff I can take over to Lacy's for storage. The less that's up in the attic the better.
MARIA: yep good idea, thanks.
End of Day: well I might just go and do what Maria suggested... then do some more tidying up down in my bedroom/sewing room/gym! Yep, one day it will a garage again too!
