Yes, I am alive

silly :D

I've just retreated into my shell for a while. Nothing major, just heaps on atm and my feelings were a little hurt by someone, but I'll get over it. and myself.

So, had my Mum down here for my birthday and then my Aunt & Uncle from Geelong came up as well, so we all wandered out for a nice dinner at the FC bistro and then had cake. Then they all left and went to my cousins wedding. 3 weddings in the family in 1 year makes for timing disasters LOL BTW, I don't like any food smothered in gravy or sauce....ick. Why don't they just put it on the side in a jug or something and you tip it over yourself if you want it.

Ann O'Dyne sent me a BEAUTIFUL card with a miniature Persian rug, gorgeous it is, so have been hunting for the perfect frame and perfect spot to hang it. Thank you so much my wonderful blogfriend :D I tried to take a pic on my phone but I am useless and can't take a decent pic atm. Hubby has promised to take one tonight and not forget.

Hubby and kidlets got me a vintage Singer sewing machine with the Sphinx decals, according to the Singer site, it was made in the late 1890's. so cool :D No clue where I am going to put it atm though, maybe just on top of my other cabinet one that sits in the hallway.

I've crocheted 3 baby blankets for the new gs arrival in the next few weeks. All done in Bendigo Woollen Mills 100% wool and some beanies for him. Which meant, that I had to have something made for the other 3 as well LOL so I'm making each one a blanket and beanie.

So, I scared myself stupid this morning. I walked into the kitchen at 6am and thought Yoda was at his bedroom door waving his arms around. I said What are you doing? and he looked at me and then vanished. *BLINK* I turned the light on and he was asleep on the couch. okkkkkkkkkkkkk then, I am going insane. Freaky.

We're moving.

I think I need a week by the sunny seaside.

D3 is at D2's place for a couple of weeks to find bridesmaid dresses for the wedding.

Hopefully we're moving by the end of the year, no more quaint little cottages for me, winter is a killer, trying to heat the place is pathetic & extremely expensive. So, I'm done, we're looking for a brick place with central heating. Fingers crossed, we're trying to buy again. Probably over the other side of the city as it cuts down on Hubby's travel time quite dramatically.

Anyway...

I also have to cut down my feeds in google reader, I can't keep up with all of them and I think it's having the opposite effect of drowning me in ideas rather than inspiring me. Facebook and Twitter do the same thing, I just don't cope with so much info being chucked at me all the time, tends to freak me out as I miss stuff and then have cousins and sisters mad at me as I didn't reply.

So if I have appeared to be ignoring you, I'm not really, just overwhelmed by technology & life, so have been tending to switch off rather than on. I used to use the net to hide from RL but I think at this point I am just overloaded and over everything unless it's REALLY simple.

Thanks Jayne, probably the same house & they just shifted it here ROFL Oh, thanks for that, you just reminded me I wanted to go to Harcourt! HA!

LOL Ann, I only play Mafia Wars on FB and even that has lost it's appeal the last couple of months :( I dicovered I get free access to FB via my mobile today hahaha, can't play games though, just read statuses and messages. Might be better and less time waste :D
