Check this girl out!

Today (and for the last couple of weeks) I haven't been feeiling quite on top form. Dan sent me a message to cheer me up. It included this link and believe me - after watching this poor girl and her dreadful singing I now feel whole lot better. I challenge you to watch this and not be laughing out loud by the end. For even more merriment check out the comments posted below her video. Classic!

Embarrassing moments

This morning I came to work at 7.30. I wanted to walk the dog for an hour before beginning work. I was wearing my work blouse and jacket, and had my jeans and walking boots on, with my 'posher' trousers on a hanger. Walked the dog, and then proceeded to remove my jeans. Just then my phone rang so I sat down to chat to my friend. Time was 8.20am.

Unbeknown to me my boss was coming in early to prepare for a meeting.

So there I am in my knickers on the 'phone and in he walks!

Yes - I still have a job - but only just!

New Home for the New Year

Well - I've been a bit amiss with the old blog posts of late. First it was Christmas, then New Year - and for the last ten days or so we've had a few changes in the domestic set up, which has involved quite a bit of arranging and stuff - but we're back with our feet on the ground now and everything is more settled (Phew).

I've moved house to a little village called Greatworth and as I type this I am sitting in front of a roaring log fire with a glass of red in the main drawing room at Greatworth Manor! Am I lady of the manor? Not quite - but I think that might suit me!

In the village is a very cosy friendly little pub - we went there last night to sample the fayre - and very nice it was too. Tonight is quiz night - so have sharpened my brain and am heading off there in a minute or two.

Just a note to the wise - we go through difficulties and wrestle with a few challenges - but with God's grace and the support of our friends and family we get through them. We feel sorry for ourselves for a short while - and then something really tragic and devastating happens to others (Haiti) and we realise just how very lucky we are. We don't really have anything to worry about - do we?

Beautiful New life
