Evening all. Am still around but having connectivity issues again. Our phone line has crumbled, literally, the lovely BT engineer has patched it best he can until it can be replaced but we could lose it again at any time until then :( Good news is that it should all be sorted in a few days. Fingers crossed.
In the meantime here's a quickie post, nabbed from Laura's blog. The A - Z of me, where I so kindly give you all a chance to find out a bit more about me... like you're remotely interested. Just pretend!
A. Age: 34
B. Bed size: Double... I think.
C. Chore that you hate: Can I say all of them? No? Then... ironing.
D. Dogs: Two. A Jack Russell/Whippet cross - our old lady Lucy, we don't know her real age as she was a rescue doggy but we think around 13/14. And Cooper our Jack Russell boy, he's two and completely mental.
E. Essential start to your day: TEA! Do not expect anything coherent until at least two cups in.
F. Favorite color: Black and purple.
G. Gold or Silver: Silver. I detest gold with a passion...unless in painting.
H. Height: 5’10" (and a half)
I. Instruments you play: Does playing with a wooden spoon on the kitchen worktop count?
J. Job title: Take your pick: Chauffeur, delivery driver, Tea/coffee maker, cook, cleaner, personal shopper, personal assistant... oh yeah, ARTISTE! Ha - no wait, that's in my spare time.
K. Kids: Mummy monster to 3 monster offspring of the female variety, ages 14, 10 and nearly 4.
L. Live: *Checks pulse* Yep - just about.
M. Must haves: Tea. Books. Tea. Internet. Tea. Paint. Paper. Pencils. TEA!
N. Nicknames: Cammie, Cambo, Cambop, Cam and Whoops.
O. Overnight hospital stays: Three, little monsters need recovering from when they make their arrival.
P. Pet peeves: Rudeness. People making improper or zero use of their car indicators. Dog owners that don't scoop their doggy poop. Parents who swear in front of their children... and then blame their little darlings blue mouths on the playground. Parents who smoke over a pram or while pregnant. Finding out I just used my last tea-bag and it's to late to go to the shops (yeah - stay out of my way until I buy some more in that case.) I could go on...
Q. Quote from a movie: "... I'm the exception... " from He's Just Not That Into You - a film I saw for the first time this week. A cheesy romance but I really liked it and I loved that couple, that quote and the whole scene it came from (You all thought I'd do a Labyrinth quote... I almost did! )
R. Rhubarb or Custard: Rhubarb (and evap milk! OMG!)
S. Save or spend: Both. Save, save, save my pennies, spend on paint and books.
T. Tea or Coffee: Altogether now... (who said coffee?) Actually, I do like a coffee when out but always, always, always tea at home.
U. Underwear: Granny pants. Oh yeah baby! Or as my Mum called them - Harvest Festivals :)
V. Vegetable you hate: Don't think I've come across one yet... love my veggies. Oh, no, I lie. Broad beans.
W. What makes you run late: The internet! Complete time suck!
X. X-Rays you’ve had: My arm when I fractured it in nursery school maybe...
Y. Yummy food that you make: Rissolles, Quorn curry, Pickled onion soup, Rock cakes, lemon drizzle cake, Quorn Chilli, Bacon roll (the suet variety not slapped in a bread roll) Veggie stew and dumplings...
Z. Zoo animal: All the big cats. Don't like seeing them caged but on flip side, without places like Howletts etc. how long would it be before they were gone completely.
Well you all learned... not a lot there ;) Normal service of craftiness, artiness, reviews and and rambling will be resumed shortly. I hope!
Thanks for stopping by - if you do the A-Z too, let me know so I can come nosey!
