I'm at it again!

Yep, I'm in the one of those crazy "let's fiddle about with my blog" phases. I just can't help it, I get bored easily. I know what I want but I can't find it on the net and the thought of having to read all that jargon in order to do it myself makes me feel like dusting the house is actually an easier option.

Anyway, I've temporarily put this piccy up. Who knows how long it will last!


  1. Flower power, eh? You hippy, you.

    Yep, it's me - I'm back! - and catching up on what's been happening. So where's the holiday, Mrs T? Don't forget that invite to Oz.

  2. Ah hello PB, how lovely to hear you again! I just got your card (I think it was Thursday/Friday) from New York. It sounds like you had a great time; I look forward to reading some blogs about your many adventures. I wish we had taken a photo when you were here - but it slipped my mind - it would have been a nice little piccy for The View - I don't supppose there will be many occasions when there will be 3 of us in one room:)

    I'm not really the flowery sort but I thought this was quite nice -not too sickly girlie:) The one that was more appropiate for my blog was a template not a background (big difference) and just required too much work - it's all those things I have in my side bar which would have to be copied and saved etc. Ugh. Not enough time for that!

    Thanks for the invite to OZ - maybe sometime - at the moment only a 4.30hr flight to Cyprus has me thinking about purchasing straitjackets for the boys:)

  3. Creative instincts are tough to quell. Better to do it with your blog than your hair...
    I'm vicariously excited for your trip!

  4. Looks quite good, Mrs T. these over here, and here, are butterflies, right? Or is that one a cartoon bunny? Mmmm, hard to make out. Nice all the same!

  5. Heather,

    You are so right - especially with my hair which is as straight as a die and has a will of its own. I've only ever had 2 perms - the first one fell out after a week cos my hair is very thick and strong. On the second attempt the hairdresser left the stuff in too long and left me with an Afro! I went straight out the premises to the next hairdressers and had as much cut off as humanly possible and I still had curly hair. God it was awful! Unfortunately, Mr T captured it on camera - there's a picture of me standing next to Adolf Hitler in Madame Tussauds looking a complete wally. It's classic horror photograph - and one I shall never be putting on this blog:) I only wanted a little wave in my hair, instead I got about 6 months of looking like a bearded collie!

    Anyway... yeah, I'm not good at surpressing the creative impulses. Which is why I spend a lot of time sculpting chocolate:) It's good for the mind!

    I know you like to travel, I'll let you know how I get on! I'm trying to be dignified by not showing too much excitement but I think the sun specs, kaftan and water buoy I've been wearing for the last three weeks might have given it away:)))

  6. Gary,

    Butterflies, bunnies?? Blimey, I thought my eyesight was going but you've obviously got cataracts!

    ...Although you don't seem to have much of a problem looking at those nice young ladies on your blog:))

  7. Now. This "green" colour you have going on. Is it envy of some kind? You mention that you are looking for something but cant find it online. Maybe Mr T has blocked your laptop from visiting "those" types of sites!

    But I do hope you enjoy your fiddling...which isnt a double entendre at all...honest.

  8. Ah Good evening Sy! I assure you Mr T has very little power to prevent Mrs T from finding her own fun!!

    (And that wasn't a double entrendre either!)

  9. Yep, a photo op would've been good. We brought our camera with us... but forgot to use it! Don't think I could even blame jet-lag at that point.

    Cyprus sounds good: sunny, hot, infused with alcohol - not that there was an absence of any of these when we were in the UK. Do you have a quest while in Cyprus, akin to your search for the Blarney Stone last year? A decent bottle of Cyprus sherry, an available and young Greek god...?

  10. Hmm... now there's an idea PB. A Greek God? Maybe I'll take my binoculars with me - it could be more interesting on the beach than I thought!

    I must read up on Greek history before I go. I'm a little rusty in that area - it was that preference for Tudor bottoms that did it!

  11. The new background's cool! I do like 'Cutest blog' backgrounds.

  12. Thanks Sue - but I've changed it again! Yep, I do like some of the Cutest Blog backgrounds. I can't understand why there aren't more sites with only backgrounds rather than templates - which are much more tome consuming to load if you have a lot of widgets.Crazy.


I am always delighted to receive comments!

It's the early hours of the morning, and I have had a large gin... Late-night alcohol is always a good recipe for writing gibberish. And...
