So the thing is...






I probably haven't replied to your e mail and/or commented on 
your blog this week - sorry!  I've been fighting sickness all 
week & hubs has been away on business so it's just been me &
4 wonderfully exhausting and exasperating children, 
a bladder infection and an ongoing power {electricity}
problem thanks to my bright idea (pardon the pun) to wrap
18metres of LED rope lights around the palm tree by our pool.  

The electrician succeeded in breaking the lights & defacing 
the palm tree, and now instead of enjoying it's beauty in 
LED display each night we are experiencing regular power 
outages instead...not exactly what I had in mind.  

The cherry on the top is a problem with my e mail so I've been 
unable to access my inbox for the best part of 3 days
(if you haven't heard from me hang in there...)
HopefullyI can get it repaired next week.
Today I am busy busy preparing for my uncle's 60th birthday
party where I will also be the official photographer too -
it's a '60's themed Fancy Dress party - so I should have
some hilarious photos to share with you all next week!

Until then...
and HAPPY WEEKEND!!

Never a dull moment in your house is there?
I hope that you get everything sorted, the bladder thing first... Yuck, I have had my fair share of those too and it's horrible. Trust you have a relaxing weekend and feel 100% soon.

Hi Helen, wow! sending good thoughts your way! that'll cover it all! =) I did send an email re: my daughter's travel journal. she hasn't received any postcards to show where her journal has traveled. sadly, she is the only student in class who hasn't. she has been asking for a few months. can you tell me any details re: journal? thank you.
