Haven't Fallen Off The Face Of The Earth

 It is just that it is still winter and damp and cold and not my favourite time of year unless I am on holidays and sitting in front of the heater, with a DVD marathon in front of me - then I am one happy camper :)

Well here is a picture of a small cross stitch finish, it is from JCS Ornament Issue 2009 and it is called Joy and designed by Midsummer Night Designs. The photo doesn't do justice to the colour of the fabric is a greenie hand dyed colour (I really need to learn how to take a decent picture LOL)

Okay, I have a dilemma at home........where the hell am I supposed to sit when I get home from work!

We did have to take our brindle baby off to the vet on Tuesday and I am not sure who it is more traumatic for, them or us LOL.  Her lip/jowlie thing was swollen on Sunday and after closer inspection we found something that we thought may have been an abscess or an ulcer. It turned out not to be any of these things but apparently the vet said she must have been chewing a stick and stabbed herself in the mouth, so now I have to get covered in dog slobber every morning and night trying to get 2 and a half tablets down her throat while the other dog sits there begging wondering why he isn't getting the extra "treat".

I will end this post with a hypothetical for you all.......

You work in a place that is under staffed and everyone is super busy doing their job and helping other people when they can.
Is it horrible of me not to give a flying **** when you have a work colleague tying to get sympathy from me for their workload and standing there with that "woe is me" look?

Out of Hibernation

Well as you know it is winter here in the Southern Hemisphere and life goes on. It is wet, damp, overcast, oops hold that thought, I just had a quick look out my office window and there is sunshine out there but you can guarantee it wont be there at 4pm when I leave the office!

I have been doing my usual winter hobby and watching some DVD's, last Sunday it was a big Chick Flick marathon for one. The featured movies were:
Confessions of a Shopaholic, Love Actually and PS I Love You. Nothing rounds off a rainy Sunday better than a glass of wine and a cry LOL

This time of year for us is a total bummer, apart from it being winter, it is tax time, all the major bills find their way into our letter box (land rates, water rates etc) and I find myself feeling blue and imagining it being summer and reading all your blogs and feeling jealous that you get to spend time in the sun, whinge about your air conditioning not working properly, the house at the lake needs a coat of paint etc LOL

I have been doing some crafts, but need to find the camera charger before I can take some pictures and post them, so I finish off this post with a picture that I found on my thumbdrive of a Jacaranda Tree a few doors down from my house in the last glow of the setting summer sun.............................

Theme Thursday

To check out this weeks Theme Thursday.
Any who the theme is blue and this week something that colour blue scared the crap outta me. It was a message in my inbox with one of these attached.......
Ignore the bag, its the buttons that I wanted LOL
Now it wasn't from an old high school acquaintance that wanted to catch up, it wasn't from someone claiming to be my second cousin twice removed, and it wasn't from the really cute guy who catches the bus in the was from my ex-husband!!!!
