I'm so sorry, I'm so sorry - Well it's too late baby, now!!!!
The road to hell......

I'm a bad, bad, bad, bad, bad, bad blogger.

Oh, it is so long since I have added anything. No excuses really, just lazy this week- I shall have to do better. On Friday I went to my friend Cathy’s house and we had tea and watched the Princess Diaries II with her girls. Yesterday Karen was meant to come for tea, but I was too hot, and had a headache and so she offered me afternoon nibblies instead, so we bought the net tulle etc to make her niece two tutus!!! Pink and dark pink and sparkles!!! And watched 2 episodes of Blake’s 7 and the special features. I had to block my ears, close my eyes, and go la la la as I don’t like to see the actors as real people, I just want to maintain the fiction that the characters are real people!! Then I cam home and slept and today I went to Di and Mark’s shack at Bellingham. We walked along the beach and I paddled and we had lunch and came home just now. I am planning a nap now as a trip really takes it out of you. Harki and Peri did get 2 old tennis balls from the Cages though and Harki ferreted them out of the bag while I was locking the gate and had begun the game even before I was ready!!! Now she is crying as Peri has stolen one ball and I am ignoring her. ‘Our Mary’, the woman who married Prince Fred of Denmark is coming for a visit and don’t we know it!! Her photo is plastered across everything. Soon Charles Windsor will be here and I think there is Dutch royalty as well. Too much royalty. I will have to start avoiding the news and current affairs : the Danish couple are even on Denton. Poor show there. Oh and now the spell check has decided to revert to being Australian again. At last!!!
