time to tighten that money belt.

I’ve gone and listed a couple of things on ebay. Its the first time I’ve done this so here’s hoping it all works. please visit my items and bid furiously: nintendo DS lite white and sqeezebox

Let me know if those links do not work. I’m sure at some point the session ID will time out and the link will break.

We’re still up to our eyeballs in cat doo, mainly runny and splattered all over the place. All from one cat, Otis is fine. We’re not happy at all and Scotty in a mood is not to be sniffed at by any cat. Poor Jasper really got the raw end of Scotty’s anger this morning. To the point that Jasper ran upstairs and peed on the kitchen floor. At this point I know he’s not happy and telling him off and rubbing Jaspers nose in it is not resolving the situation. I really need some more time at home to sort him out. I do worry about our boys. I don’t want them to be ill. I have booked vets and got all the care instructions I can from the rescue place we got them from. At least now I know what I need to do. Its all a matter of applying it.

In good news, the new car is coming home tomorrow. I’m looking forward to it. I’ve been bouncing about at home dancing and singing “new toy! new toy!”

I’m still worried about mum too. This week is going to be tough for her and I think I may just take a drive out to see her anyway. I saw mum yesterday after her chemo and she looked happy if a little tired. She gave me the silk for my wedding dress which means I now have to book another appointment with my dress maker to get it to her.

Then back on to the wedding we’ve near as dammit got numbers for the event. It looks like around 80. Now we have to do invites and catering. These are daunting me a little but I’m sure at some point I’ll bite the bullet and dig in and get it done.

Finally I’ve found myself too tired to knit of an evening so I’ve been adding to the games I like on-line links section on the bottom right of this page. Go and play some. Them’s good for passing an evening when I’m tired.

not so much fun but games

November 21, 2007

The other day I ordered some games for the wii online from GAME. I cant fault the actual delivery of the items. They turned up yesterday morning nice and early. Thing is I’ve still not recieved any of the email. I checked my cpanel account online at home and it was not that causing the issue. I’m sure my account with jiva does not expire until september 2008. There is No reason at all why the emails have not turned up. Mighty odd.

Anyway we got Simpsons, Lego Star Wars and Marrio Galaxy. We’ve tried the first two and they are fab. I can see Scotty haveing lots to do whilst I work normal days over christmas. Plus it means lots of warm cosy nights in for the both of us.
I’ve been knitting at that sock (two at once so that should be socks). I am at the point of gusset increase. Things are looking good. I really should take some photos. Which reminds me, photos are up for mums birthday party, go take a look.

Sorry if this seems a little short and stabby, I’ve had a REALLY rough nights sleep. I woke up several times and then from about 4am onwards I had to get up because my nose was stuffed. Got back in to bed around 4.30 and lay awake. I may have drifted in and out but I did sweat buckets, get cold, get hot, listen to snoring, hear cars and birds. I was not resting properly. Come the alarm going off for Scotty I was a mess. He said its not that bad so I burst in to tears. Mainly because right then I was with head ache, tired and completely unable to relax properly it was that bad in my head. He tried to comfort me but saying the things that would wind me up the most instead of just hugging me, not his fault, just mine for being completely erational where sleep is concerned. So yeah up at 6 and no more sleep. I’m never ever good after lack of sleep. I can sleep for England and Europe. Being deprived of what I consider my one major requirement will make me a complete emotional wreck today. Then there’s the vets tonight so I had to come in early to work. Plus the builders were prompt at 7am and started the cement mixer at 7.15.

Please, if you’ve read this today try not pick on me. Give me a gentle stroke and say “aw have a cookie and a cup of tea” and walk away slowly before I cry or scream. You have been warned.

bleh…

May 25, 2007

Well I didn’t make it to the knitting group last night. I was waaay to tired. Instead of driving over to the forum and getting knitting I just sat there on the sofa instead, knitting.

The other yarn I ordered to match the bayerische sock does not match close enough for my liking. I love the new yarn but instead the bayerische are going to be changed in to mitts. I’ve started on the other end of the same ball to get the same amount of knitting done so I can then measure how big the mitts can be. It just gives me more stash now to do more things with. My aims this weekend are to knit like a daemon and make sure all my stash is up to date on ravelry.

Today I’ve got a cracking head ache, I hope it goes soon. I’ve got my new computer at work and I’m using it to fix someone else’s computer.

here have some photos to cheer you up:

tasty drinkage

Thats pineapple pear and melon smoothie

garden!

some of the plants in our garden. At the moment we have LOADS of herbs, some spring onions that have not popped up yet and 6 purple cauliflowers and 6 Romanesque cauliflowers. I need to pot the cauliflowers on but I’m a bit low on pots and space… I’ll keep you informed of progress.

One last thing, a big WHOOOHOO! because its a bank holiday here in the UK, which means a 3 day weekend. And relax *melts*

I’ve just found where all our old computers go…

May 22, 2007

I work for a large company, they lease computers for us to use and then return them back to be refurbished and sold on.

Shock of all shocks they sell them on ebay. Not that I want one mind. I know what they’ve been through.

I’m still toying with getting a mac to replace my home laptop. Something small because my old Compaq laptop at home is a huge wide screen beast which sounds like it needs a good hoover out because the fan is a bit blocked. Also the wireless card broke the other day. Dragging cables around the lounge is no fun. It is over 2 years old and struggling with any games. It used to play guild wars fine. I don’t play guild wars any more but I do play kingdom of loathing which is highly addictive. Just think how silly a text adventure can be and make it all point and click and you have the idea.

I know its not green to throw out and buy new, but there is still that I WANT A NEW TOY aspect to it all.  Saying that though I’ve got a list of new toys I want, as always! I’m even trying to think of items that we need to put on a wedding list. That is if I ever get around to arranging my own wedding. People that know me may think it will never happen. I’m still not sure until I can get someone to organize the whole thing for me for free. Not that I want the moon on a stick or anything.
