So poorly at the moment, and technology saga

continues, so I can’t load up Hayley’s birthday cards.

HAPPY 18th BIRTHDAY HAYLEY by the way, your presents will be handed over to your Mum on the school run.

Slave has been working so hard to get the technology back up and running, and he has improved things a bit, but now can’t find the disk to re-install our email provision.

Currently we only have the laptop cabled with no wireless, no printers or scanners – fingers crossed for the weekend.

I have a flare up, and so will be spending the day tucked up in bed, and praying that the increased anti-inflam dose and other meds start to take effect. I kinda himped out here very slowly to check the emails, and am now himping (between a hobble and a limp) back to bed now.

Everything is going Pete Tong today……..

I don’t feel particularly well, the wirless connection has ceased to work, and I mislaid parts of an order (fortunately that bit has been found), but everything else is still off the wall.

I did a bit of crafting last night, but as the Slave was hogging the PC to sort out the problem, I have no way of loading up the things.

The only way I have internet access at themo is via the laptop, connected by cables and perched at a dangerous angel atop the pc – not ideal!

Still orders that can have either gone or going today, apart from one received this morning, which is waiting for a cheque to come in.

There are loads of goodies on their way to the Galaxy at the moment, and apparently some are due to arrive tomorrow.

Off to shower, and try to calm down a bit. I’m going to attempt to go into work, and hope that I can make it through the day.

Something I’ve discovered……..

if you put fluid chalk ink on the back of shrink plastic, and then shrink it:

there is a terrible smell of burning!

One lives and learns I supose. At least it did set, but it took me by surprise.

I haven’t been very well today, but felt a little better this afternoon so have been playing around with my new Cycling Stamps (soon to be in store at the Galaxy) along with my Cactus Pink ones.

The result is kinda retro with a vintage edge, and I’m really pleased with the results as quick and easy thank you note cards for the Drummer.

The “ladies knickers” stamp shrinks into a beautiful little tile, just right for hanging on a card with fibres.

woohooo, I’m wireless………………..

and nowplonked in front of the TV with my Parental Control in the sitting room. I now have a bit of freedom, and don’t need to be tied to the PC upstairs, as miss out on some of family life to run the Galaxy.

We’ve just been watching the Party at the Palace, which Minkey enjoyed very much, and now it’s bath and bedtime for all of us I think.

I’m looking forward to blogging without leaving my bed in the morning.

Night blogettes.

and the finished babules look like this……..

are they lickable. I just love the lushness of them – just like the Russian eggs.

Watch out for a showing of how it’s done on Create & Craft – I have a feeling it may be today at 2.00 til 4.00, but not sure.

We have a viewing today, so the majority of yesterday was spent cleaning. The Parental Control, Minkey and I ventured into T/Wells on a shopping trip. We came back with a haul:

1. a very large purple case ready for holiday;
2. a new mobile phone for Drummer Boy.
3. a Per Una top for me, plus some t-shirt tops and knickers from M&S. No Blackcurrant Sundaes, they didn’t have any – boooohooo.
4. a Nintendo DS Lite plus games for the spoilt Minkey (ready for holdiay, as we are off to a remote region with not a lot to do for 8 year olds).
5. a part of Hailey’s present – not saying, she may read this.
6. a lovely large oval basket lined with pink and blue floral material to hold the stamps on my desk.

Shopfront news: there are loads of orders going out tomorrow, and one which I have been requested to leave until later in the week.

Minkey, Slave and I are off to the cinema later today, and whilst we are that way we’ll be picking up the remote aerial doodad for the PC and Notebook.

Right, off to have a look at the listings for the Cinema……..

Baubles and pots of lushness………

and oh my goodness they are lickable. The Primary Elements are soooooooooo lovely as well – especially the Wine & Roses Set.

I’m so excited that they have arrived – not in great quantities at the moment, as I wanted to see how they went, but I am confident they will fly off the shelves.

For anyone who has heard of Primary Elements, they by Luminarte – the same people that make H20’s – and are dry polished pigments which are meant to be mixed with the Simple Solutions 1, 2 or 3. Depending on your application the solutions work on different surfaces.

You can pour the appropriate solution for glass on the inside of the babule, then add the elements, and you get the most fantastic looking creation. Perfect for high-class Xmas decorations.

I will put up a picture of a completed one tomorrow.

In the meantime, this is where you can see the range of products at the Galaxy.

I’ve also added the Wizard Metal eyelet setting mat in store, and the large protective worktop mats that are cleanable and heat resistent.

More products should be coming on stream thick and fast next week.

Loads of offers at the Galaxy at the moment….

and it’s quite busy as a result. I got no time last night, and fealt awful anyway to do crafting, we had to sort out the technology and pack orders. I also watched a bit of the Bibster and then “Without a paddle”, which is a very funny movie.

As usual this morning, I’m in a rush, I need to leave the house smart as picking up a colleague at her mother’s as most of the Blahness are off to a do in London this afternoon. I’m not going, but I thought I would play nice and offer a lift to save her Mum a journey into work – I go right past her door.

In the middle of packing more orders this morning, but won’t get them done til this afternoon when I get home, there still should be time to get to the Post Office tonight though.

The payment waiting to be cleared is now OK, and so that one parcel will be going off.

I have a whole day of Craft Day to watch on Sky+, so will do that on Sunday.

Hooray, we have a viewing on Sunday, so Saturday will be cleaning day!
