Non-Stitching Catch Up...

I've always blogged at least once every month since I started, so I didn't want June to go by without at least one entry, though this one isn't going to be terribly exciting I'm afraid. :)

My job has been busy. No surprises there. This is the time of the year that getting a day off is rare. Though I've organised it a bit better this year than I did last year, so I'll get SOME time off at least (even if it's just 2 days off every 17-18 days or so). I have a lovely Norwegian family staying at the GH this weekend anyway, and it's people like this that make not being able to take normal time off worthwhile. I love our scandinavian guests - I think if I only ever had Norwegians and Swedes staying I'd be quite happy! :-)

One of my dearest friends who I've known for 15+ years is Norwegian, so it shouldn't surprise me. She's off in Italy right now celebrating her birthday (entering a new decade!). I know she reads this blog from time to time (though she's NOT a stitcher!), so Happy Birthday Cecilie!!

I've been stitching a little most days, but haven't felt compelled to take any photos just yet - I know I should have. I need to work on that. :)

I need to look at setting up wirless Internet. I do have a laptop, but it's not wireless, and although it's a perfectly good laptop, it's quite a few years old (maybe 4?) and doesn't have a wireless card in it. I may actually look into buying a new laptop and giving the old one to my brother. It would certainly make computer/Internet time much easier. The house is three stories and my office (along with the main PC) is right at the top in the attic and it's not terribly practical to spend much time up there in the summer.

It can get warm up in the attic during the summer. Snoops has found the perfect spot to sleep (what you can't see is the fan in front of him).


OH yes, a very happy Snoopy!


I will work on getting some stitching photos posted next month.

Hope everyone has a lovely weekend!

Hi Tina, I was wondering what you were up too. Snoopy looks quite happy where his is. Can't wait to see what you are stitching.

Snoopy does look wonderfully content, cats find the best places to nap. Hope things settle down for you soon, and I'm looking forward to seeing what you've been working on.

Awww, isn't Snoops an absolute honey?? Sounds like you've been a busy bee, but by the sounds of it you enjoy it - well, you wouldn't do it otherwise :) Sometimes I don't take photos of my work, but that's because I'm headless, but you'll get round to it when you're less busy. Lovely to see your post - glad you're ok x :)

I hope you're finding some stitching time amongst all your guests!

Enjoy your busy summer time and I will look forward to seeing what you are stitching. My laptop is Wireless and it makes a great difference. We have the Apple Airport they work with non mac's too and it is so easy to set up...i.e. about 4 mins quite a relief after trying for hours with Belkin stuff and NTL's gear. I'd reccommend it to anyone.
