weekend away …

[Credits: Yeah Baby by Fee Jardine. Font: Century Gothic.] Did you miss me? We went up the coast to cheer DH on as he participated in a triathlon. No internet access where we stayed, but I did play a bit on the laptop this morning. My screen is dreadful to work in PS CS2, but […]

so now that i’m almost a teenager …

[Credits: a freebie calledTreats by [ksharonkdesigns]. Font: Haettenschweiler, Century Gothic.] I’ve been a bad blogger this week … lots to do, no energy to be creative at the end of the day. I hate running out of creative energy, but that’s the way it is sometimes. Today I did the taxman thing with DH, and […]

worn out …

I’m typing this horizontal on my aubergine lounge, totally worn out! I’m watching a DVD with the man, nursing a doozy of a headache, listening to the washing machine grinding to a halt, thinking I really should get up and deal with it, not feeling very inclined to. But I do have chocolate secreted somewhere […]

mid-week madness …

Not really madness here … just short of inspiration, I guess. I think the worst thing about being back at work is that everything picks up and moves at a frantic pace. There is last minute homework to do, lost shoes to find, daughter to drop off early for music practice, software to load onto […]
