It’s dusty in here. Almost like the owner just up and left the place.
I hate when I qualify as a “stat”. When I started blogging I read that most bloggers give up around month six. My last post was at the end of June. I started my blog in January. You do the math.
In all honesty it is summer around these parts and the summer is always a buzzin’ good time for me.
Sometimes a little too heavy on the buzzin’ part.
I spent four nights at The Treehouse - Babs’ cottage near Westport. Babs once did a guest post for me about some Facebook folly. She is also a frequent commenter here and well, she corrects my spelling and grammar. I know, I know. An editor WITH a cottage? How lucky can one girl get? My children did not accompany us this year so I quickly regressed to my younger days and behaved as though I was 18 years old.
That’s where the heavy on the buzzin’ thing comes in.
Needless to say it was a great time spent with great friends. We drank, ate and made merry. On the last night we played our favourite card game “Gravy”. I laughed so hard I pulled an abdominal muscle. Seriously.
Oh. And I bought new shoes. Weird statement to throw in there when it comes to vacationing at a cottage but hey, I love shoes. And hey, Babs’ cottage is close to Kilborns- shoe emporium extraordinaire.
From The Treehouse I had one night at home and it was off to London for me and my teenager, Colin. We visited my brother and his family in their newly renovated flat in West London.
London offered all sorts of fun and fancy including preparations for the Olympics, Big Ben, the Tower of London and Hampton Palace – home to none other than Henry VIII – who, by the way, I am totally obsessed with. All of this and the horrific story of a lady with a hole in her face. Please stay tuned for Part Deux of this post which I promise will be produced in the next few days. It feels good to be back.
I have been at this post for an hour and a half and due to the complete RIDICULOUSNESS of the photo uploader the majority of my time has been spent dealing with the photos. I have only had time to muster up about 300 words. If anyone reads this and could tell me an easy way to deal with the uploader and also how to get the captions CENTRED under the pictures I would greatly appreciate it. Also, is there a way to eliminate the horizontal line that begins the captions? And why did the first picture of my new shoes cut off the end of my toes? It did NOT look like that in the original! Grrrrrrrr!
