Started the day with a chuckle!

Goodmorning everybody!

In all I can say the last two days went by very easy peasy! Didn't do too much, apart from designing and a little bit of housekeeping(very little!).
Yesterday I completely was out of my rythm, cause I slept till 11.00 in the morning WOW!!! And I did get to bed at my usual time on Monday evening.

I started with, what's new, a coffee and reading teletexte. Then checked email and blogs and started up PSE. By that time Jan got up(he goes to sleep very late so in the morning I am the one up rather early, oh, I cherish those moments in peace LOL) and drinking his coffee turned on the tv. Then after a few minutes he kind of groaned to me that the remote control wasn;t working. Strange, just a bit before I used it and it worked fine. But.... it could be just the case of empty batteries. Can you guess already? I looked into the draw where we keep them and had all kinds of batteries, but just not the smaller ones, the AAA. Bummers!
Jan only could use the button for switching out and on the digital tv receiver. As a too good girl, Kyra closed the computer, hopped into some clothes and went out to buy some batteries.
It's not far to walk, so in about 15 minutes I was back again, with two sets of four(only needed two, but now we had some in reserve).
Jan put in the new ones, that seemed to work, till after a short moment, again nothing. He changed to the old batteries again, no luck. New batteries again, better???????? Now he even couldn;t switch on and off the digital tv box. No, I didn;t give up yet!!!!!
I pulled out the plug for the digital box, and put it in after a few seconds. And TADAAAAAAAAA!!!!
All worked well again. ( even with the old batteries!).
But we changed them back to the new again, to be more at ease. So much for technical vision of guys. LOL

However, this didn;t give me the chuckle this morning. No, a great blog is back into posting again. Due to a holiday of the writer of it, I had to miss it for a while. But if you like a good laugh go here
http://forkhandlesforkhandles.blogspot.com scroll down a few posts to get the start again after her holidays and try to put youself in her place! I love the way that women writes about the daily events at her shop!

I have something to show you, some Christmas stuff I've already made for Minky's Christmas blog. It may not be posted for download yet, she is very busy at the moment, but if you like it, try it again at a later time, okay?
I'll give you the link to Minky's blog and there you will find the link to the Christmas blog.




I also finished already my kit for the World Wide Christmas Scrapbooking Freebies blogtrain( you can see the logo in my sidebar). We are supposed to put on the contribution at the 1st of December. So you will have to wait a little bit, but then I am sure you will find lots and lots of treats!


It should become a fairly nice day today, speaking of the weather, so a good time to do my shopping, (I hope for a bit of sunshine later today). Gosh, even forgot to tell you that Monday afternoon I went into town centre, to look around if I could find the last needed Christmas presents. Well, I found  something, but not all. It's however tempting to walk around the shops there, while they already have lots of Christmas stuff. But I restrained myself, og, what a brave girl I was indeed, and didn;t buy anything!! Would have been a bit ridiculous too, cause I already have so much stuff at home! However, you know how it is! You ALWAYS see something new or funny or beautiful, that cries out to you ROFL>! But I stayed putt!!!
Time for the next part of the Steampunk Journey, this time only one and then Friday the two last ones.
Have a tremendous day!

I see you've been very busy indeed. This is a good time to do all this shopping while the weather is still so nice. I'm as bad as Jan with remotes and other tecky things. I'm at work, and getting ready to go home soon. You have a wonderful day. Hugs, Edna B.
