Sunday and back into print !

It's Sunday today, the weekend nearly over and everything I wanted to do, has not been done... Now I do have the excuse I have not been well...but still.... it is so nice to look back on the week and to have achieved what you wanted to..

So, a new day, a new start and a new list ! Still am hoping to show you a photo or two.. and I need to photograph and send both the lapquilt for my friend and the stars for Australia.

I will see what happens... just did not want to disappear altogether from this blog now I have started...

Foggy start, Sunny day !

During the week, we stay in a cottage near DS2's school. (You see, I am picking all these wonderful abbreviations up from other blogs.. Dear Son Two and DS1 of course, you get the drift). On waking a blanket of mist draped the countryside into a mysterious muffled world. It was beautiful and I regretted not having my camera with me... Very soon though it cleared and the mysterious morning turned into a beautiful sunny day.

City Link (with a different driver, apparently Dave was the offending one on Saturday and as he had not left a note through the door either, it is suspected now he didn't bother to even turn up at all, leave alone knock...) came at midday yesterday and finally brought the parcel for DS1. It was eagerly awaited...... I was pleased not to have to look out of the window anymore...

The top for the bushfire quilt is now pieced and ready to send to Tia... I was contemplating on trying to quilt it myself but considering that I both do not have a darning foot and have never done it before, I thought I would leave it to the professionals... Sorry Tia !

My good intention for the day is to sort out this photo business so there finally will appear some photos on this blog. I do so appreciate those in other people's blogs and really feel I have to get it sorted. still watch this space...... (I am sure once I can do it there is not stopping me.....:-)

A little patching, A lot of waiting....

Today we were expecting a parcel from Amazon... to be delivered by City Link. One of those express deliveries whereby you "guaranteed" get it next day so you have it for the weekend... Or so you are led to believe...

When nothing appeared by midday (with me looking out of the window at every heavier than normal motor sound, looking for vans) I tracked my parcel online and what did it say ? Delivery attempted 9.09am... at which time I was home and waiting... We have a very squeeky gate (closed) and the dog will bark at a leaf blowing past, so City Link is supposed to have actually knocked on the door? I don't think so !

So now it is coming on Monday... or so they say.... I am one of those persons who cannot get on with things properly when I am waiting for something. Amazon promised they would try and phone the van which 'may' still come... Not of course !

Oh well, did get a little done in the afternoon. Sewn on a couple of applique hearts and made a sleeve on my just finished lapquilt. It consists of a panel with some borders (haven't got photo's yet). I intended it to be a quilt but a friend said she definitely would have it as a wallhanging so I put a sleeve on so my other friend who is going to get this in the post can choose herself.

I have a Blog !

Hi everyone !

This is my very first post and I seem to have a blog.... I have recently discovered blogging and am enjoying following various blogs. I am not very good with internet and technology..... I tried to click a button to follow a blog and realized you have to sign up as a member. So I signed up.... Then a window came up telling me that I need to create a blog to be a member to follow another member.... You still following ? I am nearly lost.. lol ! So I kept filling in forms so I could follow a blog..and now seem to have my own !

As this really happened by accident... and I am not sure whether I will be able to post photos etc... nor at all sure how often I will be able to blog.... But in any case I can now follow the blogs of friends I have found easier, being here myself....

Gosh, quite amazing really.... I will see how it goes. As for the title... these are my main interests. If I ever find out how to do this photo adding, I might post a few nice waterside pictures. Hope to meet lots of you !
