I'm Back ....

Did you miss me ... did you even notice I was missing!

Did I miss anything?  If so leave a note here.

I shall update a bit later, as Mum is just getting tea organised .... Cheese on Toast!

How Was Your Day?

Snagged from many of my friends ...

I'm running a test to see who's reading my posts.

So, if you read this, leave me a one-word comment about your day that starts with the third letter of your LJ USERNAME. Only one word please.

Then repost so I can leave a word for you.

LJ Managed To Confuse Tim Last Night!

As you know I don't get internet at my place yet, and last night I truly worried.  I was just falling asleep when I realised I hadn't checked my emails ... and then couldn't relax.  So had a quick check ... and a message from LJ saying my credit card was out of date for the automatic update ... fine I have 2 weeks to go.  Then another saying the extra Userpics would end on the 2nd, as the credit card was out.

Yes, no notice ... and I have over 200 uploaded.  So, I thought, fine, I can buy the update on PayPal and work out the rest this weekend ... NO ... my phone wouldn't let me go to Shop on LJ.

So, I text Tim ... by now it is 10.30 at night .... but he was up, and on the internet (he is doing the family tree).

He has an LJ account he doesn't use - and couldn't remember the passwords!  LJ wouldn't let him buy the icons, without updating the account as well ... so, my baby brother did the lot for me.  I now have to send him the money, but it was a panic for me for a couple of hours.

I'm just so thankful that I couldn't sleep until I had checked my emails - and even more thankful for my helpful baby brother!

My Week ... Another Update

Not much to say about the week - except it was a good one at work - so nice, busy shifts.  The time goes quickly and the patients were all ill, but not too poorly.

I finished my bathroom - and got the lino down.  So that's one room almost done.  A couple of things are still to be unpacked, when I can get at that box ... an ornament, toothbrush holder, etc.  But other than it, it looks good, and is nice to have a shower in the morning in "my" bathroom.

I have started the painting of my study ... the shelves are all undercoated (it took 3 hours!) ... so hope to get them painted this week.  I also got a first coat of paint on the walls ... a softy orange (Pictures to follow at the end).

One other task I have done is to pay for my sofa and chair, and organise for them to be delivered .  I have always had 2nd hand furniture ... but decided as part of the move to buy new.  An expense, but something I wanted to do ... hppe they are as good and comfy as they felt in the shop!

Started one of my resolutions this week as well - proper reciped for cooking.  Something I had got out of the habit of, and wanted to re-start.  Mum & Dad bought me a breadmaker as a house-warming gift, so have had that, but this week made some rolls as well.  Also a recipe for mince that I first did when I was 11 at school.  I enjoyed it, and will continue to dig out the recipes ... I have promised myself.

The final thing I have done is to check out details of how to order a "telegram" from the Queen.  Come March it is Mum & Dad's 60th Wedding Anniversary ... so wanted to find out how to order their telegram.

Right, I must get on ... and sort out some pictures to make some icons ... Blakes 7 is calling.

Hope you have all had a good week.
