Celebrations, Smiles and Frowns


What a week it has been! We celebrated the boys 4 and 6 birthdays last Saturday complete with jumping castle and castle cake. Note to self - never let them choose another cake that has royal blue icing. It's really not an attractive food colour and it gets on everything! Saturday was also the arrival of the final pieces of my desk puzzle so I finally got to put it together on Sunday. I've still got a little bit to do and I had to compromise on the silver legs but I do like the industrial looking drawers. The frowns for the week came from a supreme act of stupidity on my part. I decided to rebuild my computer and thought I'd backed everything up but it turns out I hadn't. So I inadvertently purged myself of many years worth of collecting web links and not so useless documents. Swampfire (my big boy's alien in the bottom picture) was just menacing enough to remind me of my ordeal and I have carpet burn on my elbow from throwing myself on the floor in a dramatic turn upon the realisation that everything was gone. The only saving grace was all pictures were on a different drive. I'm trying to convince myself that this really is a blessing in disguise.
