Panic mode

Ever get the feeling things creep up on you? Like there isn’t enough time in the world? I apologise for the absolute randomness of this post. It’s just to say I’m here and alive – but it may be a while before I next update. Have no fear!

Yes it’s 7.40am and I’ve been sat at my computer for the last 40 mins and things STILL aren’t done. I need to dust, vaccum and tidy up around here too, and dinner at my parents although I won’t stay long if I can help it. The Guy says I have major OCD lol, and it kinda freaks me out… I’m surprised I’m not in a fit of blind panic by now having to breath into my little brown paper Primark bag. And the Ironing! I still have ironing to do! But I must think of the sense of achievement when I do it AND put it all away 🙂
I still feel quite ill too. My poor throat is still on the sore side… I can’t breathe through my nose either. Curse you hayfever!
My iPod is co-operating today, yesterday it was lagging my computer up and took me 25 mins to add just 5 songs to it, so that shouldn’t take me too long to do.

Back to the dreaded work place tomorrow. I really AM off my head. Lots of things are changing and as always, I’m out of the loop.

Day out

I should have been going to see Avril Lavigne in concert tonight (I should be there right now) but sadly things didn’t quite work out.

So I invited The Guy down, and I left him in bed to go visit my nan… Got home at 1pm to find him still in bed lol. My baby doesn’t sleep so well – in fact I went to bed late (11pm is late for me!) and I remember hearing him up still at 1am. But it was somewhat fun to burst into the room, open curtains and the windows as the weather was gorgeous and sunny dispite a slight hiccup with some light showers about 11.15am ish. Then to jump on the bed, accidentally squashing him as I’m so accident prone it’s unfunny and saying rather loudly: “IT’S TIME TO GET UP”… only because I was up at 8.30 thanks to my internal body clock which is in this routine where I’m up early – although did have a lie in this morning hehe – and I’m just jealous. Then I got asked why I didn’t wake him sooner, bless.

We went to the Forest this afternoon after drooling over all the houses on MTV Cribs.

Some coffee for him, and some Apple Juice and flapjack for meeee.

We took my camera and got some awesome shots… Which make me super happy because I have cool pics to put in the scrapbook, and my baby is getting a GREAT eye for those pictures, and some of these he took of me just melt my heart 🙂 I have some sweet shots of me to put in my Book Of Me. It’s going to be so much fun having another photographer around here to share my passion, methinks 🙂

(and look at the length of my haaaaaaaaaair. I can’t wait to have it cut off, although I love it and I know I’ll miss it when it’s gone… It’s annoying the heck out of me and needs to be cut off.)

and someone’s doggy came running up to me for some fuss. Oh! sooooooooo cute!

First Picture of us… and Pink Paislee love!

me and the guy:
Me and The Guy
Lol, he loves my camera – quite fancies getting into photography, so I promised I will teach him 🙂

Anywho, I have to be brief – I gotta dry my hair and get down my parents within the next 10 minutes – yeah so not going to happen, but I live in hope lol!
My Laptop Lunchbox arrived. Loving the fork and spoon set it’s so cute!
Laptop Lunch

*drools* This is the Pink Paislee stuff I mentioned the other day… I’m so in LOOOOOOOOOOOOOVE. I look forward to the summer lines, and hope that Angel Crafts do a kit of those too 🙂
Pink Paislee *YUM*

and American Crafts thickers… Oooo that Alpha goodness…
American Crafts & Maya Rd

couple of jobs done…

I’ve managed to tidy up a little around here lol. The Guy stayed a couple of days, and I was so tired on the night he left but I stayed awake as long as I could so we could savour our time together as it’s rare as he lives so far away and he works odd shifts. I told him to text me when he got home but to ring a few times and hang up as I always sleep straight through any texts! So he texts and rings and I wake up as I went straight to bed once he left, and I grabbed my phone (this was just gone midnight) and began texting back. Next thing I know I’m waking up, it’s 5am and my phone is still in my left hand with half a text typed out on it! Whoops! It’s really hard to see him go 🙁

I’m about just over half way through the photos. Stewart & Claire’s invites are all done, Little something-something put in the post and Lianne’s Jewels is up and running with a couple of things up in the shop, hurrah. It seems I’m catching up with things which means I can also finally so some more of Shimelle’s “there’s no place like home” class which I kinda done the first week of and haven’t yet caught up on. Poo.

Getting there slowly!

I am slowly making my way through the photos, but I’ve had other deadlines such as wedding party invitations that I needed to design, print and get ready for my brother which took priority.

The Guy is heading over tonight as well, and other such tasks to do (my poor housework has seriously suffered!) so I thank everyone for their patience… You must remember I was not paid to do the photos for Jax Dance, nor was I thanked or mentioned at the show. I took 2 Saturdays of my own freetime to do this favour, and the fact I have to go through 774 photos to pick out the best ones, crop them and proof them as well will take me a fair time! I have currently spent (not including the 5 hours from my time of the rehearsal day and 8 and a half hours spent on the day of the show) 6 hours going through the photos and I have done about 100 or so of them.

Safari

I’m back and ready to post. Bit tied up yesterday. Now for those who do not know already there’s someone else, but it’s still early days and we’re seeing how it goes so for this purpose am I here to protect the innocent lol. He will simply referred to as “The Guy” or “TG” (like Top Gear dog LMAO!) or simply “G”. I will pick one and stick to it.

So me and the guy went out to a safari park and had a good laugh. For example:

Eland
The CD in the car was basically saying about Elands that they’re shy animals and you won’t see them… TG says: “That’s why there’s one in front of my car!!” LMAO!

It was so cool to see the animals up close and personal
Deer
Sealion

and get called a Japanese tourist by TG for simply taking lots of photos!
Holding Hands

Coffee
Clock

Maze
Totally got lost in the maze too. We gave up and went back out the entrance haha

More can be found at my Flickr anyway. Had SUCH a laugh at the Tapirs… one was chasing the other and biting his butt HAHAHAHA!
