Happy Hump Day all!
I hope you are all having a good day - halfway through the week! Yay!
Btw, about the spider/rat situation, we are going to get the rat & keep the thing switched on as apparently it doesn't harm rodents. It makes a noise, but they get used to it. Obviously though, if it looks like they are getting distressed, I'll turn it off, but we will give it a go and see. Spoke to the people I'm getting rats from today & looks like I might get them next week! I'm quite excited now!ActionRob update -
ActionRob is now on his way back across the Atlantic to visit Tracy
! I really enjoyed hosting him, and hope he had fun too
However, one last thing we done before he left was, on Monday, he went for a kilt fitting
!! My aunt sews for a living, and often has various tartans, so we went up for a visit and got him measured up for a kilt! The tartan used is Granite Grey
(very similar to Grey Spirit which we will be having at our wedding!), and my aunt sewed it so it was a proper one, with plaits at the back
of it! The front has velcro, so he can fasten it at the waist, and we improvised a kilt pin from a safety pin! LOL. On Monday night, ActionRob & I made him a Scotland flag
so that he can take that with him onto his next destination. I think he likes the kilt; so much that he asked to wear it during his flight to the US! Marielle - HAPPY BIRTHDAY
!! I hope you have an awesome day today! Wow, I love the gifts you posted - gorgeous pictures!!
It is horrible weather again here too! Been raining since last night...bye spring, hello again winter LOL!Fi -
I loved your mega post! Sorry I missed it in my last post; we must have been posting around the same time!
I loved your Dr Suess quote to Raine
about her pregnant friend; very good advice!
Yep we used to have a similar thing up here called Adventure Ted - my nephews had one at nursery, and it was always fun to have him at the weekend doing lots of fun stuff! Are you planning to host ActionRob at some point this year?
About the fridge size (that Christina
mentioned): yep that is about the size of fridges in the UK. But that's just the fridge; normally the freezer is that size too, so technically it's double the size of that LOL. If I had a really big house, and lots of money, I would totally buy a huge American fridge-freezer - the ones with the ice maker and everything!! Amy -
I, like Fi
, thought it was kinda cool you only used heating 2 months of the year! You must save soo much on gas & electricity! But then I thought, you prolly need AC, and I'm guessing that uses tons of electricity too? LOL.
Your day at work yesterday sounds great! I can't think of anything better actually, apart from maybe doing all that at home Haha!
I love that your mom loves ActionRob!! Did you see the other pics I posted? I think I have done about 4 or 5 posts worths of photos, plus the ladies that had him before me. You should check them out; some of them are really cool!
You live in Cali yeah? Desiree
lives there too! No idea where about though..Raine -
Will you get to meet your friend's bf at some point? How come your other friends don't like him much? How come her insurance doesn't cover everything that she needs? Do you have an American-type health care system (sorry if I'm being too nosey! Just like learning stuff about other countries!).Caryn -
Sorry you weren't feeling too good! I hope you feel better today?
Btw, thanks for the pic of Robkowski & the giraffe!Sandy -
Hey there!Chrissy -
Aw, sorry about your unpleasant bus journey. I wouldn't have liked that much either!!
But..I do like your new banner! Susie -
Nope sorry you didn't really suprise me LOL. Once I knew you weren't there last week with SonnyBoy I just knew you would be there this week on your spring break! I am looking forward to seeing more pics though!!Lulu -
Yay for having an awesome time with Susie
! Thank you for telling us what you done - sounds like much fun! I love that you only watched the good bits of NM & Eclipse! LOLChristina -
Yay for seeing an advert for WfE! I wonder if we will get any over here..I was at the cinema the other night, and hoping to see a poster or something, but nope. Oh well still time I guess!Rachel -
Yay for getting to write an official ff review! I didn't even know that happened tho LOL. What site is it for?
Well I'm off. Enjoy the rest of Hump Day
