I am writing this in a purely selfish manner to allow myself to offload a huge amount of guilt. I greatly admire those bloggers who are send me lovely emails in response to any comments I have left. Quite often they are bloggers who have a large group of followers and therefore receive many comments, and yet they still are able to answer each comment. How do they do it? I am going to make no excuses for not doing the same but I just don't manage it. What I want to say is I appreciate and value each and every comment I receive. They offer support, encouragement and humour. When I see I have a new comment it is as exciting as receiving a letter in the post. So on that note THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU for all comments I have received since I started this blog.
On that subject of comments and leaving them, does anyone else struggle with the codes to be typed in as security to prove you are not a robot. I have often wondered if I may be dyslexic. If these codes were any form of assessment, then yes, I most certainly am. Firstly I find myself trying to make a word in my head from the obscure choice of letters given. Next I type them in carefully, often saying them out loud as I type, only to find that I am being told off in RED ink because I have done it wrong.
Type the letters as they are shown. It always makes me feel that I am being shouted at, because I thought I had typed them in as they were shown. It just gives me a little extra challenge when I leave a comment and a sense of satisfaction when I get the code right first time.
I noticed on Katie's blog the other day that I had been tagged to show my fridge. I can't say that showing my fridge is something I do on a regular basis, and normally the only people that see my fridge are those who pop in for coffee or those who join us for a meal. I admit that it is a new fridge because we have just redone the kitchen. The old fridge was Tims which was one that fitted under the worktop. Being quite tall I found it annoying having to stoop down each time I opened it. This fridge also had been adapted by Tim in what he felt was quite a clever way. He had raised the front feet slightly, which meant the fridge was tilted backwards,this made the door always close itself. I hated this because you only had to turn your back for a second and the thing would be shut. Anyway that fridge had served it's owner well for many years and it has moved on to pastures new.
I am going to reveal the inside of my fridge only because it doesn't look like this often. Mostly it seems to be quite empty, I did a shop a couple of days ago so much to Tim and Lucy's delight we do have some food.
Do go over to Katie's blog for a look, she has just made the most wonderful sets of Juggling Balls. I am going to tag Zoe, Julie and Steph to expose themselves through their fridges. As Katie said though, don't feel you must.
I have managed to find time for a little crafting and once this post is finished I am off to do some more. I bought a kit at the knitting and stitching show a few weeks ago. It didn't take long to complete and I think if I get all the pieces cut out in advance I could rattle a few off.
She looks a bit shocked, I think it was the flash that startled her. Exciting things..... the postman has just been and I have 2 parcels. I wasn't expecting anything so I am off to do a bit of ripping of paper.
