I meant to post an update yesterday or two but…

my keyboard became a casualty of the Hogmany party.

Whilst we were out getting supplies for the party we decided that we might save money on photos and frames by buying a printer in the sale and use the frames we already have. I amazed myself by not opening the box until about 6am after almost everyone had went home. Barry pissed himself laughing as ripped a ribbon of flesh from my finger as a tore the box open. Barry pissed himself laughing as I split a pink drink all over my desk and computer. Barry pissed himself laughing as I gave out a loud scream of disgust and confusion as half my keyboard didn’t work. The pink drink didn’t touch the keyboard or any important part of the PC case so I just couldn’t work it out. It wasn’t until 12 hours later and Vonnie pointed out I’d spilled a beer on the keyboard as well at some point during the night. D’oh!

Anyway I got a spare one from my parents so we’re back up and running again.

Also with the start of the new year upon us I’ve got stuck into decorating the living room. I’ve got one wall painted and I’ve spent today stripping the rest of the wallpaper. We’re on our way to having a decorated house!

Have you ever been so insistent that you get something done a specific way that when a problem crops up that halts you in your tracks you come close to hitting something very fragile with a hammer, stapler or some other such heavy object that smashes things with ease.

With all the uncertainty and confusion over the last week and yesterdays trip by Vonnie to take the little one to A&E after she turned yellow I figured a nice and uplifting post was in order. I had the text all written and I had the perfect photo for it that I took in the Science Musuem in London. So I logged onto Flickr to get the fixed address for the image I wanted as almost all our photos are kept private for friends and family and Flickr is broken. You can look at our pictures but if you try and look at the other sizes it throws a wobbly. And the worst bit being the photo I want hasn’t even been uploaded anyway. So I’m left without a picture for my post which makes it nowhere near as nice and positive as I want it to be.

I’m stuck.

Then I remember the photo should still be on my camera which is in my bag. I get the camera out and hook it up to my laptop only to realise just as I turn it on that when I downloaded them to my PC at home I had the software delete them from the camera when it was finished. So still no photo!

I guess it will have to wait but I promised myself I’d get a post with a picture on here so heres one.
