'Ello!

Has it really been two weeks since I last blogged? Well, I *have* been busy you know!

Last night I went to a leaving "do" at our new Casino in town. It was brilliant, a good time was had by all - although some did better than others! I was very good though, I didnt drink too much, but I did have my first Tequila slammers for which I am paying for today with a swollen tongue. (Someone's told me that it's the lemon that's done it, not the actual drink, it sounds good so I'll stick with that, although it's not something I'd drink again as to be honest, the only thing I could liken it to was Domestos). The meal was fantastic, piping hot which is always a good sign. I had tagliatelli with salmon, prawns and mussels (but I picked the mussels out as I don't like them!) I gave them to someone else who loves them and who I found out is a midwife and knows the one who delivered Bec!! Small world or what?! Didn't go on the gambling tables, it's just not something that I have any interest in whatsoever, I even got bored watching to be honest. I think I stuck it out for about a minute ...

So here I am, stuck in work (thankfully I don't get hangovers) and musing about what I'm going to do when I finish this afternoon. I was going to dig the garden over, but the weather looks a bit dodgey at the moment, so I might just curl up and stitch instead, I've still got a bit more of the hair to do on Deepest Love plus I want to backstitch her face so she doesn't look so ghostly. We'll see, I'll decide later on.
I'm totally addicted to Meerkat Manor! It's on Animal Planet every day (I'm in raptures!) I tend to tape the 3 in the morning ones as it's not going to clash with anything else I'm taping! I sit in the living room, laughing my head off one minute, then bawling like a baby the next - absolutely compelling viewing! I'm so addicted and even have the Meerkat Manor wallpaper and screensaver! Yep, I'm addicted, sad, but true. Try it and see!
Tomorrow I'll upload a picture of Deepest Love tomorrow, I'm going to try and finish her by Christmas.
Thanks to all who posted their lovely comments about Queen Mermaid, it was such a joy to read them, so thanks once again.

Lets just say a good time was had by all ;) Sounds like we have the same taste in food too salmon & prawns = my fav & mussels = my worst!
