Bad night

Couldnt sleep last night. Got up at 3am to check my email then went back to bed again. Finally fell asleep at 9am. Woke up at 1.30pm. Now my sleeping pattern is going to be way out of kilter. It's been a while since I had insomnia.


My slippers were dirty so I put them in the washing machine....................they fell apart lol, and they weren't very old. Have to get Him Indoors to buy me some new ones when he gets paid

It is so very sad that when online friends who you thought were your friend turn out to be not your friend, how hurtful is that?

Just needed to get that off my chest and no explainations will be given as none needed.

DVD Night

My pride and Prejudice DVD turned up today. Will have to wait till Monday to start watching it when Him Indoors is at work and the sprogs at school...........I want to watch it in peace lol.

Saturday night is DVD night, so we all huddled together and watched Moonraker followed by King Arthur the directors cut. I love that film, very well acted. The popcorn never lasts long with the twins, Him Indoors and Ben eating it lol.

Hope everyone is having a nice weekend!

An evening out

Him Indoors and I have just got back from my sisters. She lives across the road from me. We ordered in a Chinese meal and had some wine, just a very small half a glass for me, as the dinner made my tummy a bit gippy. Nothing wrong with the meal, just too much richness so soon after the operation I think. My sister Sharron, made a lovely chocolate and strawberry french tart, made with 80% pure chocolate.........but the pain afterwards was well worth it, especially as she made it for us.
My sister and I have been estranged for years, but we are both making an effort to get to know each other and things seem to be going in the right direction. We have even agreed to go fishing with her and her partner Dave who is a very keen angler. Him Indoors wants to get back into it and I have never fished. I will give it a go as long as the fish don't get hurt and Sharron assures me that they use fish friendly kit whatever that is lol! She has a lovely boxer dog called Jayjay, who is gay, I kid you not. He only likes boy dogs and is the biggest softy ever lol.
Thats it for now. Hope everyone has a nice weekend!

Oh, Mr Darcy!

Oh, I am trembling at the knees with excitement and anticipation. On Amazon, I found The BBC adaptation of Pride and Prejudice with Colin Firth, at just under £8 instead of £20. I have never seen any version and only read the book this year, but I do know this..............I really like Colin Firth, I really like Pride and Prejudice, a fabulous combination in my books!

I used to eat a lot of natural foods until I learned that most people die of natural causes.

Gardening Rule: When weeding, the best way to make sure you are removing a weed and not a valuable plant is to pull on it. If it comes out of the ground easily, it is a valuable plant.

The easiest way to find something lost around the house is to buy a replacement.

Never take life seriously Nobody gets out alive anyway.

There are two kinds of pedestrians: the quick and the dead.

Life is sexually transmitted.

Health is merely the slowest possible rate at which one can die.

The only difference between a rut and a grave is the depth.

Health nuts are going to feel stupid someday, lying in hospitals dying of nothing.

Have you noticed since everyone has a camcorder these days no one talks about seeing UFOs like they used to?

Whenever I feel blue, I start breathing again

All of us could take a lesson from the weather. It pays no attention to criticism.

In the 60s, people took acid to make the world weird. Now the world is weird and people take Prozac to make it normal

How is it one careless match can start a forest fire, but it takes a whole box to start a campfire?

Who was the first person to look at a cow and say, "I think I'll squeeze these dangly things here, and drink whatever comes out?"

Who was the first person to say, "See that chicken there? I'm gonna eat the next thing that comes outta its butt.

"Why is there a light in the fridge and not in the freezer?

If Jimmy cracks corn and no one cares, why is there a song about him?

Did you ever notice that when you blow in a dog's face, he gets mad at you, but when you take him on a car ride, he sticks his head out the window?

Why doesn't glue stick to the inside of the bottle

Do you ever wonder why you gave me your email address?

Our area was flooded

Pictures and story curtesy of Hastings Observer online

(I live just around the corner and luckily on a hill!)

Date: 07 July 2009 By Richard Morris

After weeks of scorching sun the heavens finally opened this morning - flooding parts of Hastings and leaving cars in St Leonards submerged in pools of water. Storms hit 1066 Country at just after 1am this morning and have not let up since. Blackman Avenue was one of a host of roads closed off by the time locals left for work, with fire crews battling to clear water which had flooded at the end near Battle Road. In fact, as our exclusive pictures show, parts of Hollington were left as much as five foot underwater, with cars wrecked, gardens ruined, homes flooded and bins bobbing on the water. Elsewhere, parents were told St Paul's School had been forced to close after it was a struck by lightning, causing the electrics to short circuit. And, students on their way to Filsham Valley School were diverted across the South Saxons Wetlands in order to get to lessons because of severe flooding which left the entire school field under water. Emergency services said they were inundated with calls. Mark O'Brien, of the local fire service, said: "We were called out two hours ago because of flooding in Blackman Avenue and Hollington Old Lane. "We have received a number of calls about flooding across town with properties and road affected. "In Hollington Old Lane there has been severe flooding due to the rainfall last night. A number of residents are staying in their properties and are cut off by flood water. "They are in no immediate danger and are being asked to go to the upper part of their homes where it is safe. "Water has not entered the houses and we are working hard to make sure it does not. "There is forecast to be further rain today." He said nine homes in Hollington Old Lane had been affected and two in Blackman Avenue, adding: "The flood water is running towards Stonehouse Drive where around 20 properties have been affected." He said the area had flooded because a storm drain had not been able to cope with the high level of rainfall, adding: "We have got emergency equipment and teams on standby to rescue residents in case the water level rises."

We all wish for more time to ourselves at some point or another. Right now I have so much time to myself that I am bored senseless with it. I will be so glad when I can move around normally without my stomach hurting or feeling like it's dropping out.
I've been online playing hours and hours of World of Warcraft, doing mostly instances lol. Played on Pogo, sent pictures via email from my phone, just because I can , oh and surfing through BCUK lol. The bit of paper the hospital sent me home with says '4 to 6 weeks recovery'. Help! That means I am going to go around the bend and possibly lose me marbles . I'm going to give it a few days and try to clean the kitchen surfaces with some bleach lol. Oh and I am going to get very adventurous today and bung a chicken in the oven

On the road to recovery

Last Tuesday, I had my gallbladder removed. I'm doing well, just very sore. I'm very bored though as it is so hard just sitting or laying around lol. I was so bored yesterday that I signed up for Club Pogo lol. Also been playing lots of World of Warcraft online lol.
Sod's law that we have been having a heatwave while I've been stuck inside.............mind you, not a bad thing I guess as I dont want to get burnt.
Oh yeah, been Twittering and on Facebook a lot, also learnt how to make the most out of my Nokia E71, including how to upload piccys straight from my mobile to Nokia Ovi and Twitpic etc.................I feel like a darn geek now lol.
