Just the usual madness!

Alright??  So it's Wednesday and you know what that means!!  Yep it's quiz night..............

News first!!  Apparently about 6am this morning there was an almighty thunder storm, torrential rain etc, guess who slept through it??  *big grin* yep yours truely!!  So glad!!  I need my sleep!!  Was obviously worth not going to bed too early last night!!  After I logged off I thought I'd sit down and watch a bit of tv - ended up sewing my t-shirt back together :-)  Gettin' good at sewing me!!  Saying that I don't know how long it will last the stichin' was a bit haphazard!!  Thought I might be able to sew my jeans too but no such luck!!  Just wear them around the flat then me thinks.

Everyone was talking about the thunder though!!  I remember something waking me up but I was too dozey to care and went back to sleep.  I remember hearing a gurgling noise and wondered if it was the drains outside or my loo..........When the alarm went off the people on the radio were saying how bad the weather was like an hour ago.  Some part of town was flooded!!  Anyway I slept through it and that's what counts.  :-)

Calculated my finances last night!!  They are not looking very good at all!!  Especially as I have to go away next weekend for a birthday bash!!  At least the pressie isn't too expensive ;-)  Have something in mind see........

Work didn't go too well today, brain was not connected to fingers for a start!!  Snacking after lunch went out the window too coz James brought in a packet of cookies and team leader brought back hot cross buns :-)  Didn't do any real exercise tonight - perhaps I should try those trousers back on LOL.........Ooooooooo that reminds me I must look at the returns policy thing and if there's a time limit to it!!  Need that money back!!

Well I shall stop divering and just point out a couple of things - I know most of my readers would've checked out Jeannettes map but if you haven't make sure you do so coz it's really cool :-) ---------> link over there somewhere!!  Secondly here's a game for you all http://www.nickelarcade.com/RRW/RRW-RayRayParade.html  a bit addictive and aren't the little guys cute ;-)

Best to get those trousers back as soon as poss - and get hold of the money. You're never going to need them, cos your size is shrinking now - isn't it? Of course it is! That sounds like quite a storm you had there. Trust Jen to sleep right through it, lol!

My brain is struggling, especially after my holiday but will try tomorrow! If there was a storm where you are, there must have been one where I was......but I must have slept through too!!
