I need that holiday NOW!

Evening all - just a quick note in between ironing (ugh:(( ) and packing for our cruise.

I am really glad to see the end of this week. A few weeks ago we had to replace the lock on our garage door as I broke it when trying to open it. On Thursday this week we went out - and some b*****d had tried to break into it! They had broken off something in the lock which meant we couldn't open it with a key and had to call out a service engineer/locksmith. Needless to say they didn't have a spare lock in stock - one should be arriving on Monday! Guess when we drive to the airport hotel?? Monday!! Luckily we are staying there before flying out the next day, so it doesn't matter if we get there late.

Last night our cable TV, broadband and home phone went dead just before 10pm. We headed off to bed and read a bit more of our books. This morning it was still off! So after a variety of phone calls we eventually discovered that it was a district fault (not just us thank heavens) and the tv came back about 1pm and the internet about 3.30pm. But we still have no home phone. Luckily we both have mobiles, so we're not completely isolated! But guess when they are coming to investigate?? Yep! Monday afternoon!!!

All I can say is that I will be glad to lock the door behind us on Monday night. Surely nothing else can go wrong between now and then?

Oh no! Now my daughter wants me to make Minnie Mouse ears for Jessica to go to a fancy dress birthday party before we go!! I was hoping to finish a dress that I'd cut out and not even started to sew for me - but if I hunt around I might be able to find some black felt?? Wish me luck!

Anyway, dinner calls, and I doubt that I'll get time to post what I've been working on this week, so I'm signing off for now - be back on March 16th from Singapore, so check back then?
