Assorted nonsense

Yes. I'm back again. Hopefully for good now. My stupid PC has been driving me mental the past few days... Have been able to receive email but not send it and get online but not post. The I-kinda-have-internet-but-not-really is actually more irritating than not having it at all I have decided.

But today, mercifully, technology has not yet tried to thwart my evil (or other) plans and I am coming to you live from my new desk in my new office on our new ADSL line. Can I get a cheer?

I have been so frustrated by the fact that I've been unable to blog over the past while and I've realised that it really is therapy for me. In fact, it's more effective than a few shrinks I've seen in my time.

Now I don't have much time because I am super behind in my work (having not had phone lines the past week and having not been able to send emails to my clients to even tell them we have no phone lines), but I'd love t0 hear how your Easter weekend was.

Mine was great. So nice to have TSC back again! We spent Saturday at the Rhino and Lion Park with our friend from Britain and his lovely fiancee and made them potjiekos for supper. We nearly didn't get them to the airport on time that evening due to a huge accident on the freeway. They were the last people on the plane as we sprinted (NOT an exaggeration) through the almost deserted airport.

Sunday was spent with the family who seemed to enjoy lunch at our house. Monday we chilled and finally finished making our path through the veggie garden. Now it's time to start planting winter crops. Can't wait to have peas out my own little patch ;-)

I'm off to catch up on a bit of blog reading in between my piled up work. I leave you with a few shots of what I got up to during my extended time away from posting...

Making jewellery!


*Having just written how nice it is to have working technology, my PC just froze twice on me and had to be rebooted each time. Nice. Not.

Welcome back...err...I guess, no wait, you hadn't gone anywhere. You'd just been let down by technology....and telecoms.

I worked this Easter weekend :( so nothing exciting to report there.

Finally, XP or Vista?

Cool jools! As a fellow jewellery maker I salute your excellent work. My Easter weekend was so quiet I had to take my pulse to check that I was still alive.
