M.I.A. not really

I know I haven't posted in over a week, so this is a catch up post.  

I have been sick with a head cold thingy.  Felt rotten for a few days; over it now, still a bit tired, but that could also be due to the clocks changing.  I don't do well with the time changes at all; in fact I am worse than a child with it.  My body just does not like it.

I had my birthday last week.  At my age, over 29, it's just another day, although dh did spoil me.  I started off my birthday by having a mammogram.  Nothing like getting your boobies squished on your birthday!  Haven't heard anything, so everything should be alright.

Got my new sewing machine, now to train the person using it how it all works!  So far so good, I will post more about all that in the next few days.  I have a couple of neat things to show you.

If you need me this afternoon I will be in the bathroom, as I am prepping for my first ever colonoscopy tomorrow.  I am having a rip roaring exciting month aren't I!!!  Should have made an appointment for a pap smear then it would have been even more perfect!

We are over half way through the month, so I am hoping everyone is keeping up with their walking?  I have around 80 miles in, so am keeping up with my challenge this month.  Just going to head out for my morning walk when I finish this post.  I have lost my half pound so finally got my 40 lbs off.  Sort of hoping to lose another pound or two over the next day or two with the clean out I am going to get over the next 24 hours!!!!

Weather up and down, but the spring bulbs are starting to peak through the soil.  As today is the first day of Spring, about time I say!

What's happening in your neck of the woods?  Off for my walk now............enjoy the rest of your day.

"A good workman never blames his tools.'

That's an old saying and so very true.

It's well known in our family that I have a lead foot when driving.  So the other day I was driving dh to do some grocery shopping.  The road we drive on goes from 70 to 60, to 50, down to 40 kmph.  Now be fair to me, I generally drive in each zone, with the first number corresponding to the right number.  The last number.............well that's debatable.

So we are driving along, and at the last minute I see a police car coming towards me.

Me: "blast, never saw him."

Dh, is rolling his eyes and smirking.

Me: "it's this car's fault, it goes too fast."

Dh, again rolling his eyes and shaking his head.

Me: "it is."

Dh: "A good workman never blames his tools."

Me: "I guess; then it must be my feet, they're too heavy."

Dh, just sighs and says: "Just don't use that excuse if you get stopped!!"

Gift for Sue............

I finished up my gifts for Sue.  She is a friend that has done a number of things for us, so I wanted to gift her a little something.  I asked her what colours, and she said I had to choose.  I do know she loves birds, so that is why I chose the bird print.  I love this colour combination.  I just hope she likes it.

Here is the fabric for my next project:

Another cosmetic bag.  Lilac inside with floral and natural cork on the outside.  She wanted pastel colours.

not the meat, but the annoying messages from people with nothing else better to do than promote all sorts of crazy things........

I moderate all my messages, as I know for a fact as soon as I switch off the moderate button, I will be inundated with crazy messages.

At the moment they are coming in fast and furious.  No idea if Blogger is trying to stop them, but I hate them.

If you have a blog do you moderate your comments all the time due to SPAM?

By the way the pattern for the little birdies was in this magazine:

Someone was asking..........
