I have had a very busy but good weekend. The night out on Friday was really good, and we had a really nice day yesterday just sleeping late, playing with BabyE, YoungB & WeeM and then went to my parents for tea. I love weekend, but hate that Sunday night feeling!!
Japan earthquake & tsunami -
I'm so glad that Raine
is ok!! I didn't really hear about it until Friday while busy at work. Someone told me about it, and I thought they meant the New Zealand one.. The Japan one is mental!! We have been watching the news all weekend; the images are so devastating & terribly scary. Especially the pictures of the tsunami waters rushing past carrying houses etc. Makes me so glad to live in the UK. We are very lucky here! (touch wood!).
It's really very frightening about all these major natural diasters happening these days. They seem to be occuring much more regularly... And to go along with the crazy weather elsewhere in the world just now, makes me nervous!
Oh my goodness girl!!! I was lurking last night on my mobile, but couldn't post, and then I saw that you had posted and I was sooooo happy!!!! I am really very glad you came back, and I hope that you can make regular posts again
As far as I know Jade
is ok after the New Zealand earthquake, but you should check with Sandy
as she speaks to her most. A few people don't post here anymore (Jade included), and now post on twitter instead. Sandy is like our bridge to the HH twitter world as she does both LOL.
I hope you recover quickly from your knee surgery, and that you find out why you have tingling feelings in your arms and legs. I'm sure everything will be fine
Some RobCrack to welcome you back!!
And then a little bit of new RobCrack
to entice you to stay! LOL.
I am so glad that you are ok!!
You asked what Irn Bru
is: it's a soft drink made in Scotland
. It is really really good, and is actually more popular in Scotland than Cola or Pepsi. You can get it in most places in the rest of the UK too, and sometimes abroad, but it doesn't taste the same I don't think LOL. It's often billed as "Scotland's other national drink" (the first one being whiskey) and has a lot of advertising campaigns here that get you noticing it! Jingles, billboard etc, a lot of which are really good, and some which get a lot of complaints for being a bit controversal (normally get complaints for stupid reasons though!). But yeah, if you ever come over here, you need to try it!
Sorry your internet connection isn't working very well at the moment. It is very frustrating!! Ours works pretty good, but isn't very fast (compared to areas not far from where we live). I don't like it when we can't connect; I don't know what I done without internet now! LOL.
I can't believe your mom got sold a stolen car!! That's really shocking! I hope everyone turns out ok for them. That's good that she will be able to keep it too,
I love that you want to be served dessert first...just like Ally in RM!
I agree with you about CH. I actually didn't mind her that much in Twilight. I blame MR more for the messed up story, but I am very thankful to CH for the cast! But she does always
talk about Rob & Kristen and it is very annoying!! Always talking about their audition etc. It's like, we know already!
I'm glad that you will be able to work your regular hours again tomorrow, and won't have to always answer the phone!
About my wedding colours: do you mean what colours we will be wearing? My bf will be wearing a darker tartan (Grey Spirit) and his "best woman" (
) will be wearing a dark silver/grey dress. I will be wearing white or ivory, and our flower girls will be wearing white/ivory with a tartan sash thingy, tied in a bow behind their dress. Not sure what colour for my best maid yet. Maybe a blue colour? Depends on what we see! Not got a clue about flowers yet though!
I'm glad you had an awesome birthday on Friday!! Sorry I couldn't be on to post some birthday RobCrack so...some belated birthday gifts
! Your hubs sounds like the sweetest person ever!! I love the journal idea...aww!!! (btw, we say "many happy returns" here too LOL).
I'm glad you like your new hair colour!! I suppose it's probably better that you don't cut off all your hair in one go, just in case you really don't like it!! When will you actually be getting it cut? I can't wait to see pictures!
Thanks for checking in! Sorry your son had to get his tooth removed, but I'm glad that he will no longer be hurting! Did you daughter manage to sleep during the night anymore? You must be exhausted!! Just check in when you can
Haha, I love that you think "millions of snow" is a Jaclynism, and you know what, it may be!! I say a few things a lot a bit weirdly, so maybe they are too! haha!
Yeah we get a good deal for internet phone on some service providers here. That doesn't include calls or texts though! For 100 minutes & 1000 texts, it costs just over £10, so I normally pay just over £15 a month including the internet. Which is ok for me!
We were talking about paying tuition fees for uni here the other day (as you need to pay in England, but you don't in Scotland), and even then some people can't afford to go to uni here. I was telling people how expensive it is in the US! Mental!
I would love to read DaughterDear's blog, if that's ok with you and her?? PM me the link if it is!
I hope you have a great time heading back home for spring break & your birthday tomorrow!! Have a great birthday when it comes around!!
I hope you had a lovely weekend away. Were you doing anything exciting? Happy birthday to your daughter!
Ann Marie -
That's awesome you are going to go to the WfE premiere!! I can't wait to see pics & hear all about it!
Your new banner by Tammy
Yep we have to put our clocks forward an hour too, but not for 2 weeks. I much prefer in autumn when we get to put the clocks back!! I don't like losing an hour of sleep LOL.
Haha, I giggled that ActionRob would like beer, but I'm afraid Irn Bru is just a soft drink! I talked a little bit about it to Raine
up above ^^
That's great that your daughters basketball couch is such a good role model for her. I'm sure she will have a great time practising!
(plus anyone else I may have missed!) - hi there! I hope you are all doing good!
I thought I would end my post by posting some lovely RobStenCrack
. I especially love this shot
and I actually was able to find a print of it at the UKTwiCon that I bought so yay!
I am off just now but I will hopefully be back later with some ActionRob
pictures from today! Bye!
EDIT: Actually won't be able to upload pics until tomorrow after work, as we ended up watching tv, and now I wanna read before bed. Still got to get up really early for work, so want to be sleeping by 11.30ish!
See ya tomorrow!
