Finally i'm back online! For almost a month I have been without internet due to our computer well and truly packing up; I cannot believe how cut off from the world i felt - it literally has been my lifeline whilst at home on maternity leave, i missed reading and writing blogs so much! I couldn't believe our bad luck in that after the computer died we quickly decided to order a new one, which had been something on our wish-list for quite some time, only to recieve it via "next day delivery", and open it up, to find that the new computer was what my dad would call, "a dud". It simply would not switch on, let alone do anything else! So back it went, and this time for some unknown reason, it took a further fortnight before a replacement could be sent. But finally, on Friday, it arrived, and i must say that i'm loving the new one, lots of new software to play around with and a fantastic new printer/scanner as well - very pleased!
It has been really lovely to catch up with all my favourite blogs this weekend, and i've been very spolit today for Mother's Day! Hubby and Mia made me a lovely breakfast this morning, and i've had some lovely gifts;
And 3 lovely cards!;
My favourite of all, as always, is the handmade card from school; this term Mia's class are doing a project on the Olympics, so the Mother's Day cards carried on the theme with gold medal made from a cake case! Such a great idea i thought!;
The mini cake has already gone, and this evening we are treating ourselves to my favourite Indian takeaway; i'm already hungry at the thought of a prawn rogan, chick pea side-dish, peshwari naan & plenty of popadoms & dips whilst watching "Upstairs Downstairs".. bliss!
Hope you have all had a lovely day too xx
