Just in case…

you’ve wandered here via Pip’s lovely post, I’m currently posting at http://blogportion.blogspot.com.

One thing about me, alas, I have trouble with blog commitment…but I’m always babbling on somewhere!  I’ll try and import the posts in from Blogger as I remember. Okay?

Eye Spy Sunday…on Monday

I’m often a bit behind the 8-ball, this is because I live in Drewzel-world and am on Drewzel-time.
Super furry coat mama Cindy has got a new meme going, so I’m in!

Eye Spy…what I want for Christmas.

You know what I’d really like for Christmas? If the fairies would come and tidy up the house, throw out the clutter, pack away neatly the good stuff, and then give everything a thorough clean. That would be super thanks Santa.

PS. I’d also like my Flickr pro account renewed, and ditto for my Frankie subscription. Ta.

Last Brown Owls tonight

And I feel a bit sad…last time at the Clubhouse. It’s been a great year of owlin’!

Sunday Stash

Today’s stash piece is one that I received yesterday as a birthday pressie* from my friend Christina (the Knitting Knut). It has no information on the selvedge and feels like a sort of mock-silk polyester. It was a remnant, so I probably will make a long rectangular scarf from it, in an effort to be “stylish” and “glamorous”.

*my birthday is Dec 3, for those who asked.

The lovely JewelGirl tagged for the ‘8 things about me’ meme, so here we go, I think I have already done this one, but I love a meme!
1. Each player starts with eight random fact
/habits about themselves.
2. People who are tagged need to write their
own blog about their eight things and post these rules.
3. A the end of your blog post, you need to choose
eight people to get tagged and list their name.
4. Don’t forget to leave them a comment telling
them they’re tagged and to read your blog.”

More things about me:
1. Even though I ate LOTS of them as a uni student, I still love 2 minute noodles, and am always happy to partake.
2. I am easily overwhelmed by life, events, and a full calendar. This is mostly due to my depression/bipolar, and I need lots of quiet time for just me.
3. I would like to be able to swing dance, dress up like a Rockabilly chick, go to a dance party and be a hep cat. Alas, I’m not a very good dancer.
4. I must always go to the toilet before I leave the house. I think this is a habit instilled in me by my parents. However, on family drives, we’d always have to stop so dad could go to the toilet.
5. I have about 5 “regular” tea cups at work, all with varying states of dirtiness. Right now I have a tray full of dishes on the corner of my desk waiting to be washed. The fairies haven’t taken them away yet. Meh.
7. I have no concept of time…an hour turns into a day, a day to a week, week to a month…and I still haven’t done what I was meant to do, say, six weeks ago.
8. I LIKE Facebook. I know people say there’s exes and old schoolmates they don’t want to find (ignore! ignore!), but there’s also old friends and family members that I didn’t talk to enough, and now I do regularly via Facebook chat. That’s gotta be a good thing.
9. Bonus one: I like Britney! ahahahahh!

Umm, who hasn’t done this? Let’s tag:
Modern Day Pioneers
Two Cheese Please
A Deed Without a Name
Sparkly Green Knickers
Life in the Dome
Air Hair Lair
Scissors + Tape

…Okay. And if you’ve already done it, just give us 8 of anything. 8 Things about your children. 8 Things about your pets. 8 fave TV shows. 8 Things you hate about school holidays. 8 Things you like about public transport. 8 of anything!

A good thing
