Thank You Note



Thanks so much to everyone, who was able to attend my virtual birthday party on Saturday! It was absolutely brilliant and the excitement was palpable! I was amazed by the response and I received some wonderful comments and virtual presents!

To anyone, who was unable to come, for whatever reason, I would just like to say that you were sadly missed and I do hope that you will be able to come along to the next one. Heavens, will there be another one? If there is, I must be better organised and I won't be risking bloggers' post scheduling, again, unless I can work out what went wrong, this time!


To any latecomers - don't be too shy to leave a comment on the party post. The party can continue for a few days, yet. This is the internet, after all!

I am working on the next post, but real life is getting in the way, a little, at the moment. Don't you just hate it, when that happens?

THanks for inviting me. Have got over the spam sandwiches now.

Btw I do work, honest, about 60hours a week in term time, I don't know how I fit in the blogging; it's a diversion when I should be writing exams, test, reports, etc. Good job blogs are blocked on the network at work or I'd never get anything done!

Mean Mom said...

working mum - Glad you're feeling OK again! Hmmm! We believe you, of course! Blogging should only ever be done, when there are a thousand other things you should be doing, instead. It's not enjoyable, otherwise.

Blogs blocked on the network? Oh, now that really is mean!

I have a virtual hangover but I am consoling myself with the fact that I nicked your hat with the money in it and my weekend at the health spa went very nicely thanks!

Life, is that something else I have to fit in between work, weans and blogging ?

Mean Mom said...

mob - Well, I'm glad that you are enjoying yourself, with my hat! Sorry about the hangover. That shandy tasted better than I remembered!


auntiegwen - Not necessarily, but some of us feel obliged to have a go!

Mean Mom said...

bollinger byrd - No, there isn't much going on, worth knowing about, to be honest.

Maggie May said...

Is this your embroidery? it is lovely!!!!!!!!!!!

Suburbia said...

Yes, that life thing has been getting in my way too!

Mean Mom said...

maggie may - I wish! I scanned one of my birthday cards. The picture came out well, didn't it?

I don't seem to have the knack of taking digital photos of my embroidery. They don't come out very well.


suburbia - I need more hours in my day. Particularly at weekends, when I like to have a lie in.

I get all these great ideas. I'm a notebook girl. I get all these great ideas but where does all the time go? I wish I had the stamina some of you seem to have. What are you all on? We've been trying to sort out wi-fi this week. I can't believe that Mr Grumpy who has a BSc in Computer Science, the Lover and his 16 year old couldn't work it out. Soo frustrating but we're almost there I hope.

Well I'm proposing a three day weekend. Anyone want to sign my virtual petition? Well actually there isn't one because I never seem to have the time to work out how, but if I could I would add one to my blog. Anyway, come and let me know if you agree. Well,that's rather stupid because who wouldn't?
Anyway, sorry I missed the big day and all the fun. What a bu**er. Jelly I love it, especially Delia's port wine jelly which no matter how many times I make it I can never remember the alcohol hasn't been boiled off and it is therefore verrry, verrry potent. Hic! Shall I bring some next year? How many bowls do you think? Happy belated birthday

Mean Mom said...

icemaidensmellingthecoffee - The men in my house had problems with wi-fi, too. I tend to blog into the early hours and then feel very tired next day. A 3 day weekend would be great. I could catch up with my sleep on one of them!

Sorry you missed the party. It was a great day! Port wine jelly sounds wonderful! Bring plenty to my next party. Thanks for your belated birthday wishes. They're still very welcome! Thanks for calling in.

Jules said...

Lovely card and I've just realized that my lovely party post didn't appear. *sigh*

So another sightly belated Happy Birthday.

jules - Thanks for your birthday wishes, once more!
