I was up all night again, just can't shut my brain down, so I'm mega tired. Had visitors this morning, then had to take Mum for her Monday cuppa with a friend, then take her to docs for blood tests, rush home, get her lunch and pick DD up to take her to Boston. OK, that doesn't sound so bad, I hear you say, except for the fact that, that is a lot for me to do in my less than busy life.
So, we get to Boston and it's peeing it down. The Citizens Advice Bureau is closed, so we had to walk to the other end of town in the rain to the Estate Agents. Apparently DD had promised them some money today, which I hadn't realised, so I sent her to empty my bank account.
Still peeing it down, my hair is sticking to the back of my neck, my glasses are falling off my head, my shoes are killing me and my very long leather coat was flapping round my legs upsetting me.
Off we pop to the supermarket, where being a beginner with a pushchair, I promptly get the wheels caught up in a display cage and drag it down the isle with me. Of course, I was getting admiring glances from all around, NOT....gets to the till and muggins here forgets the pin number for the credit card. Not having enough cash with me, and Nic already emptying my paltry current account - stands back, takes 50 deep breaths, remembers number and pays for shopping. Whew!!!!!
Mia, by this time is hungry and tired and screaming. Deep joy.
Crosses car park, and some pillock decides to reverse his car without looking. Screams and frantic gesticulations get him to hit his brakes before he sent us all flying.
OK...nearly done. We get home, thankfully in one piece and then my piece de resistance....I fall over just outside Nic's house. My ankle just turned. The worst of this is I had Mia in her car seat in my arms. I had no way of stopping my fall, and my priority was getting Mia to the deck in one piece, which I did, but with quite a jolt. She's OK though. As for me, I have a very painful ankle and 2 very sore knees one of them very, very sore. It's grazed and swollen too.
So, I'm thinking nothing else could happen...WRONG....I burnt the bloody toad in the hole for tea.
I always wonder how you can scrape and bloody your knees without getting a mark on your jeans too. That's always puzzled me.

Hmmm, I always thought I was quite chatty but apparently not, eh? I've been busy staring at my grandchild and taking hundreds of photo's, making my jewellery and paper crafting.
I also think that what I'd have to say isn't really that interesting and I'd hate to bore you all.
Still, you don't have to read it, do you - so maybe I'll come on and witter a bit more often. Maybe I need to join one of those prompt things somewhere.

I've had quite a busy day today. I'm afraid I've been so busy crafting and reading that my housework has suffered. Ooooeerrr!!! Anyway, I did quite a bit of it today. I also washed some baby stuff ready for new baby in a few weeks, did some ebay shopping (more baby stuff, lol) and did some scrapbooking too. These two LO's are of me as a baby with my parents and one of my daughter at 1 day old - 25 years ago and now she's having a baby of her own.

I went out for a chinese meal last night. I only had a couple of voddy's and half a bottle of red, and boy, do I feel rough.
I must be getting old - can't take the pace anymore, lol.
It was a lovely meal though. We went to the Golden Dragon in Woodhall Spa and the food is lovely. I had the most gorgeous spicy mussels for starters. I'd never had them before but would defo have them again. Perhaps they were a little salty, but that's all.
I slept really badly and am really tired today. I tried doing a bit of cross stitch, but didn't get far. I kept falling asleep.

My daughter has 8 weeks to go now until my first grandchild is due. July 11th. I am so excited, I can't tell you. She's had a fairly rough pregnancy, bless her. Lots of headaches, sickness, scabby legs (plus other normal life problems) and she's saturated with anti-b's, but never mind, soon be over. She's off to Wales to see her Dad at the end of the month, so I'm going round to paint and do the baby's room. They've chosen a bright orange and lime green colour scheme. Lovely, it is. I suppose they had to really, as I got the cot with drapes and bedding in that colour months ago, lol.
I'll be getting some more pics up soon, too. That's also been a while since I've done any. I've probably forgotten most of what CS2 can do.

What have I been up to. Well, not a lot really. How boring eh? Mind you, I have built a website. It's simple and straightforward but I did it all myself in Dreamweaver. I make handcrafted jewellery and sell it through my site. www.lrdesigns.me.uk why not pay me a visit and see if there's anything you or someone special in your life might like.
I also did my first Photoshop presentation at my local camera club. I was very nervous, but it was a great success. Having said that, I have to go back this Wednesday to show them something again. A couple didn't quite 'get it'. Hmmmm, maybe not such a success then, eh? lol. Anyway, they've invited me to join their club and I might just do it. Would give me an excuse to leave the house other than a visit to co-op.
