Me on Monday or Getting back onto the blogging horse!!

Hellooooooooo ............ long time no see ............... I can't believe how long it has been since I was last here!!!!  I have a long list of excuses which include following Marillion's UK tour, getting a lurgy, getting over the lurgy, going away again in December and coming back home with another lurgy - which took hold and became laryngitis, a chest infection and an ear infection.  So Christmas has been a very quiet affair - partly because both DH and I couldn't even speak and I haven't been able to hear anything either - what a pair we have been.

But excuses no more - I am back and hopefully I might be able to keep up some kind of regular blogging schedule - we shall see.  I would like to say that I have been crafting up a storm in my absence but sadly I haven't - I just haven't felt like it - but I do have a lot of stuff from last year that I haven't even photographed yet so I won't be running out of things to blog anytime soon.

So anyway it is Monday and a good a day as any to get back on the blogging saddle and join in with Sian and the other Mondayers.  Our new twist for this year is to look at some of the mail we have received and weave a favourite piece into our blog post.

Well this is what I found on the doormat this morning - not favourite mail at all!!!!!

Since the ear infection I can hardly hear and I keep missing delivery drivers and getting the 'note of doom' - sadly no neighbours were in this morning so my parcel has been whisked away again but hopefully will be reunited with me on Wednesday.

I did have one piece of happy mail in the week that I managed to hear the door for and that is a new phone - I have finally come into the technological age and have a phone that not only sends texts and makes calls but connects to the interweb thingy and takes photographs which meant for our first crop of the year on Saturday it didn't matter that I had forgotten to pack my camera - I was still able to take some photos on my phone!!

A view of my desk -

Yes I have actually done some scrapbooking!!!!!!

And some of our dedicated band of monthly crafters -

I still have to wait another 10 days till I can get my ears syringed - I can't wait to be able to hear again and stop using the subtitles on the TV.

Anyway have a great week everyone, it feels good to be back in blogland once more and if you want to join in and be a Mondayer too then pop over and wave to Sian at From High in the Sky


  1. Welcome back :-) That layout was lovely1

  2. It's great to see you back! I'm glad you are starting to feel better. I had an ear infection last CHristmas and I couldn't hear the door, so I know how annoying it is. Sometimes now I can't hear it when I'm right on the top floor scrapbooking, so I see the card as I come back downstairs. It quite takes the shine off a happy morning of scrapping!

    Enjoy that new phone :)

  3. Glad you're back! I'm back now too and so is Wendy... the triumvirate returns!!!! Yo ho ho! Don't be passing any of your leftover germs this way... ;)


Thank you so much for taking the time to leave me a comment, I do read all of them and they are really appreciated.
